His disappearance was dated to the 29th of Sun's Dusk 3E 498 [sic]. However, as the Third Era did not last to that date, the death date as given is probably a typo.[1]

Callisos persuaded Sheogorath that his ordinary lyre had been graced by Dibella's unbridled passion. In return, Sheogorath offered Callisos an instrument he named "Lodestone." This lyre was tethered to Callisos' very soul, promising him glory and fame—promises fulfilled. Over time, Callisos' remarkable talent and heroic exploits made him a legend among Bards College alumni. Yet, one day, Lodestone was discovered in a college practice room, and Callisos vanished. It's widely believed that he constantly traveled Tamriel, trying to elude Sheogorath's vengeance, but eventually, his luck ran out.[6] During the Interregnum, murals depicting his travels and early life were frequently found all across Tamriel.[7]

Cephorus II is noted in history as the first non-Breton emperor or the first to not spend any point of their childhood in High Rock. The Emperor was of Nordic descent and was given his position by the Elder Council, which placed him in direct opposition to his cousin and son of Uriel IV, Andorak. Cephorus II's reign was marked by constant conflict and open rebellion across the Empire, some of which outlasted his reign. The greatest evil to come out of his tenure was the Camoran Usurper, and his conquest across west Tamriel.


Cernunnon is a spirit of importance to the Dreadhorn clan of Reachfolk. Dreadhorn Clan, similarly to many other clans of the Reach venerated and made pacts with spirits, both lesser and greater. Cernunnon was summoned to aid them during the siege of Falkreath in 2E 582.

It was Cernunnon who determined when they die. The oath made by their followers sustained them and protected them from death. Cernunnon could grant power to their followers, who held Cernunnon's power within them. The oath, also referred to as a compact made between Cernunnon and their oath-bound was believed to be unbreakable and eternal.

Ceyran is most famous for building and losing three separate dominions during his long life. He was eventually killed by an unknown assassin in 1E 1102, and supposedly interred in Rulanyil's Fall.

By the time of the Interregnum, the ruins of Rulanyil's Fall had been converted into a private museum by a group called the Merethic Society. The centerpiece of the museum was the body of Ceyran, which was actually the corpse of an Altmer member of the Merethic Society who had died in a cave-in while repurposing the ruins. In 2E 582, the Worm Cult invaded the ruins in an attempt to resurrect Ceyran as a powerful undead servant. Fearing that the body would be exposed as an imposter, the Merethic Society sent the Vestige into the ruins to prevent the ritual. The cultists only succeeded in binding Nanwen's awakened spirit to a sword, which the Society agreed to part with in order to continue displaying the corpse.

Chevalier Renald (fl. late First Era - late 2nd Era - ?d)Edit

Chevalier Renald was a knight descended from the Akaviri protectors of Reman Cyrodiil I, serving as a bodyguard for Reman III and as the snake-captain of the Dragonguard. He is the focus of the second chapter of Remanada. In the text, he was apparently under instruction by a pig.

Renald and his fellow knights were said to have vampire blood (either Tsaesci or literal vampire blood) which allowed them to live for ages past Reman and kept guard of his ward, Potentate Versidue-Shaie. He and Grundwulf, an apprentice of the Greybeards, were brothers-in-arms for centuries. Renald once went under the identity of Vershu, and under both identities, served as the snake-captain of the Dragonguard. He identified as Renald when Savirien-Chorak was assassinated by the Morag Tong via a poisoned black dart. He thereafter "became the protector of the northern west". With the Dragonguard disgraced and disbanded, Renald and many of his fellow members were forced to exile themselves and go into hiding.

When his trick succeeded, Dagon was cast into Oblivion. However, in the instant of his betrayal, Dagon struck out against the mortal who tricked him. Chimere's pact assured that he would live forever in his home town among the happy voices of his friends and countrymen. Twisting the literal words of Chimere's pact, Dagon scooped up tiny Caecilly Island (a small island off the coast of Northmoor) and hurled it into the Void. All Chimere's friends and countrymen were instantly killed, though the sounds of their voices remained to torment Chimere's memory. Chimere was condemned to live forever, to grow progressively old and crippled with arthritis, and to contemplate the tragic consequences of his defiance of fate and fortune in cheating a Daedra Lord.

For more information, see the main lore article.

Empress Regent Clivia Tharn (fl. 2E 577 - 582)Edit

Clivia Tharn was the ruler of the Empire of Cyrodiil during the Interregnum. A member of the prominent Tharn family, born to Abnur Tharn and his seventh wife, Pulasia, and Abnur's sixteenth daughter overall. She was also the widow of former Emperors Leovic and Varen Aquilarios. Abnur had plans for her first child to inherit the throne, but by the time of the Alliance War she was "comfortably lodged in Mannimarco's pocket", and had disappeared from the public eye months before the Planemeld. When she was 7-years-old, Clivia played a game of Imperial War-Chess with her younger relative Euraxia and played an illegal move. Outraged, Euraxia taunted her by saying that she would one day be queen of Rimmen, but Clivia remained unimpressed, stating she would be the Empress. Her sister Septima noted that while she lacked instinctive prowess in the magical and political arts, Abnur groomed her for the Ruby Throne because she had an innate ability to command others, and they would have no choice but to follow. She married Leovic of the Longhouse Emperors, and served as his consort. When Leovic was overthrown and killed in a violent rebellion for legalizing Daedra worship in the Empire, his usurper, Duke Varen Aquilarios of Chorrol, wed Clivia to consolidate his rule. When the Five Companions embarked on a journey to locate the Amulet of Kings, Abnur sent Clivia a letter instructing her to oversee the Elder Council in his absence and saying that if Mannimarco's plan to relight the Dragonfires worked, her first child would inherit the whole of Tamriel.

In 2E 579, Varen mysteriously disappeared during a calamity known as the Soulburst, and Clivia was quickly declared Empress Regent of the Empire in his stead. This aroused widespread suspicions that Clivia and her father were responsible for Varen's disappearance, though it unbeknownst to even Clivia it was Mannimarco's doing. Mannimarco, who had orchestrated the Soulburst, became the power behind the Ruby Throne, turning Clivia to worship Molag Bal and manipulating her into expelling the Mages Guild from the Imperial City so that his Worm Cult could operate freely. When the three alliances invaded Cyrodiil in 2E 580, they quickly conquered much of Cyrodiil and confined the Empire to only the Imperial City and Lake Rumare’s environs. The alliances were unable to take the Imperial City, and so Clivia continued to rule, but despite this, whenever one of the alliances gained supremacy over the other two alliances, they would choose an Emperor from their own ranks, although these Emperors were usually short-lived. This lasted until a dark anchor opened over the Imperial City, heralding a Daedric invasion which quickly overran the Imperial forces, and resulting in the deaths and capture of many of its citizens who were unable to escape.

While absent from the Elder Council meeting at the start of the invasion, she was in charge of commanding troop movements, though her nonsensical orders for General Velarius suggest she was being impersonated even at the time. Elder Councilor Itinia had not seen Empress Clivia for months even before the anchors fell, and had not seen her after. As of 2E 582, Clivia's fate is unknown; she is not among the known survivors of the Daedric invasion of the Imperial City, and one of Molag Bal's servants, Molag Kena, impersonated her to gain access to the White-Gold Tower in order to carry out the "Planemeld Obverse" ritual. It is unclear how long Kena had been impersonating Clivia.

At some point after the defeat of the Molag Kena, Dhulef, a court mage of the House Mornard of Galen inquired his old associate, the leader of the Ring of Daggers, a Daggerfall Covenant spy network, Copper Dariah about the whereabouts of the Empress Regent. She responded in a cryptic manner: "Stop asking about the Tharns. They're graveyard dead, buried in the ground. We have enough unquiet corpses in the world. Why go making more?"

Saint Coellicia (?b - ca. 1E 2421E 243)Edit

Saint Coellicia was a minor martyr of the Alessian Slave Rebellion, which took place between 1E 242 and 1E 243. She died by torturous starvation, and was later canonized as an Imperial saint by the Church.

Saint Coellicia is typically honored in the closing days of Last Seed with a fast. The only food that was traditionally allowed to be eaten during these fast days was bread crumbs. Usually only a single spoon of crumbs would be eaten after the local bishop's recitation of the Creed of Crumbs. At the end of each fast day, an unadorned religious wafer would be eaten to signify the end of the fast.

Coellicia is most often remembered for an infamous banquet known as the Feast of Saint Coellicia, which took place under the reign of Emperor Brazollus Dor at some point prior to 1E 2877. Known for his debauchery, Brazollus sought to rekindle the adoration of his subjects by replacing Coellicia's fast with a feast. This resulted in a twelve-hour marathon of forty dishes, held at the Emperor's autumnal estate in Leyawiin. The description of this feast's many courses counts among the most famous mid-Second Era culinary texts of the southeastern Niben watershed. An apocryphal account suggests that Brazollus had Coellicia's bones disinterred, ground, and mixed in with the flour as an ingredient in his feast, although the practice of saint-eating had been banned almost a decade earlier.

Conoon Chodala (?b - 2E 582)Edit

Conoon Chodala was an Ashlander Dunmer who was an ashkhan of the Urshilaku tribe in the mid-Second Era. He falsely claimed to be the legendary Nerevarine, which made him one of the failed Incarnates.

Corda (fl. 1E 2920)Edit

A character from the popular historical fiction 2920, The Last Year of the First Era, whether she was an actual historical figure is unknown. She was depicted as Redguard Morag Tong assassin from Hegathe, Hammerfell (but widely known as an initiate of the Morwha conservatorium). Corda's sister, Rijja was executed by her former lover Reman III in 1E 2920. After her sister's execution, Corda became his next lover but she killed him as an act of revenge at the very end of the year. After that she was sent by the Night Mother to Vounoura, an island for Morag Tong assassins who became too famous to continue their crusade.

Lord Corvus Direnni (fl. ~1E 482)Edit

Arch-Conjurer Corvus Direnni was a powerful mage of the Direnni clan. His spell secrets were recorded in his Grimoire. Along with his contemporary Calani Direnni, he was a pioneer of the modern School of Conjuration. Their binding rituals are still used when summoning lesser daedra. However, Corvus in particular is lauded for codifying its rules. Corvus devoted his studies to perfecting variations on Koron's Peremptory Summons. He was apparently the first conjurer to interweave the summoning and binding of a daedra into a single spell, making the practice exponentially safer. He took part in the Battle of Glenumbra Moors circa 1E 482, where his conjured creatures played a pivotal role. Direnni mages mounted on flaming horses first appeared during this battle.

Corvus was the first to theorize that the wayshrines of Tamriel correspond to the pattern of stars in the night sky and that they could be used as some sort of transportation network. He also used Ayleid research to devise and then promulgate the standard "portal" spells which were later put into use by the Mages Guild.

The second Lord of Vitharn, the keep which his father Count Vitharn had formed from the mud of Dementia in the Shivering Isles. Vitharn and Countess Mawean had one other child, Csaran's sister Nweala. When he ascended to the throne, Csaran seemed a normal, competent ruler, and came to marry the Argonian Sheen-in-Glade. However, his persistent infidelity eventually caused Sheen-in-Glade to snap, and they began to sleep with one another less often (the only son Sheen-in-Glade bore disappeared from the Shivering Isles in his twentieth year). Csaran maintained an incestuous relationship with his sister, Nweala, and they sired a single son—the malformed and sadistic heir apparent, Cesrien.[15]

He called for the Hero of Dawnstar to interrogate the champions, ordering the local healer and oracle Eustacia to assist.[16] Eustacia's visions helped the Hero to determine the truth and reveal the traitor, for which the Governor gave the Hero Starfrost.[17]

  • ^  Words and Philosophy, the only source mentioning Calaxes, gives his date of death as "the 29th of Sun's Dusk 3E 498". However, the Third Era ended in the year 433, so this is impossible. Given this and the lifespan of Calaxes' father, Uriel Septim VII, it's most likely this is a misprint, especially since the book itself is known to have been written before 3E 427. Thus it is most likely a misprint for either 3E 398 or 3E 408.
  • ^  Some sources mention that Cavor Merula re-established the Order of the Hour in response the coming of the Longhouse Emperors in 2E 432, but this would not have been possible as the Longhouse dynasty of emperors came into power around 100 years later, circa sixth century of the Second Era.
