The Underking is a title of uncertain origin that has been attached to a number of supernatural beings throughout history. Individuals who bear this moniker include:

The controversy on the identity stems from the fact that although most sources call Arctus the Underking, there are some sources, such as The Arcturian Heresy, that call Wulfharth the Underking. For more information on the two, see their respective Lore articles.


  • According to one theory, Wulfharth, Tiber Septim, and Zurin Arctus can all be regarded as parts of the same enantiomorphic Oversoul that makes up the deity known as Talos.
