A keeper

The Keepers (or Boneyard Keepers) of the Soul Guard are towering undead servants of the Ideal Masters who reside in the Soul Cairn. Charged with the incarceration of Valerica, they herded imprisoned souls and drain their energy to maintain the barrier in front of the Boneyard.[1]

Knight of OrderEdit

 
A Knight of Order

The Knights of Order are mindless Daedric[nb 1] soldiers resembling crystalline-armored knights. They serve the Daedric Prince of Order, Jyggalag, and make up one part of the Forces of Order, which also includes the Priests of Order and Jyggalag. Their origins and their goals are unknown. They are soulless warriors that kill without hesitation, and it is therefore highly advised to destroy them on sight. They are said to be without "a bit of original thought in their lifeless husks". They are only ever encountered during the Greymarch at the end of every era, during which they are summoned to the Shivering Isles via the Obelisks of Order that dot the landscape of the realm, wreaking havoc in anticipation of Jyggalag's return. The Knights are drawn to Obelisks like "flies to honey", and are summoned by Priests of Order though chanting and rituals.

Knower's EyeEdit

 
Knower's Eye

Knower's Eyes, (also known as Watchful Lights, and Eyes of Mora) are Daedric minions of Hermaeus Mora native to Apocrypha, taking the form of massive, floating green orbs resembling eyes. They possess the ability to captivate those who gaze upon them, diverting the attention of nearby foes and diminishing their combat capabilities. At times, they are observed patrolling landmarks in Apocrypha and firing green beams at intruders. Individuals who have been granted one of the brief yet powerful blessings, referred to as Verses, from Hermaeus Mora himself, can conjure and command the Knower's Eye in combat up to a certain extent. These blessings are direct bestowals from Hermaeus Mora, intended to aid and alter one's exploration within the Infinite Archive.

The Eyes of Mora may evoke terror, death, and despair for some, but they also serve as vessels for storing information. Dedicated followers of Mora take care of these floating eyes, tending to them like books on a shelf. These eyes are extracted from the countless orbs that comprise Hermaeus Mora's essence. Each eye, contains a memory personally witnessed by Hermaeus Mora, reserved as a significant recollection. To access one of these stored memories, one must physically enter the eye, which typically requires a key, a pass phrase, or another method of gaining access.

Scholars questioned whether they are sentient beings or mere extensions of Hermaeus Mora. However, they agreed that the presence of consciousness does not always indicate independent will. These entities exhibit controlled movements, resembling observation, and serve as a source of light within Apocrypha.
