Lore:Demiprince

Lore: Bestiary: D

A Demiprince (sometimes spelled Demi-Prince[1]) is the Daedric offspring of a Daedric Prince or Daedra Lord and a lesser entity such as a mortal. Although they often inherit aspects of their princely parent, they are notably eccentric and can be lacking in characteristics such as foresight, memory, cruelty, or willfulness. Some acquire, or are given, minor realms of Oblivion to rule, although many of these pocket realities are bizarre even by the standards of Oblivion. Some demiprinces are known to visit Mundus for the express purpose of interacting with mortals, an act usually abhorred by regular Daedra.[2]

Known Demiprinces include:

  • Fa-Nuit-Hen, the Multiplier of Motions Known, is a known demiprince.[3] He is the scion of Boethiah and rules over his pocket realm, the Maelstrom.[4]
  • The Demi-Prince of Pastries, of whom little is known, save that she hadn't been seen for some time circa 2E 582. Sheogorath considers her to be one of the few worthy of wielding his Wabbajack.[1]
  • Dearola, the Daughter of Hircine, is termed a demigoddess. The Song of Gwyna tells that she intermingled with Reachfolk, and one of her descendants was Chief Rowolan of the Horn-stride clan, whose mythical prowess was attributed to his lineage. The song, however, has different versions, all of which lead to Rowolan's bloodline ending.[5]

NotesEdit

  • Morihaus is said to be the Demiprince of All Winds.[UOL 1] The word demiprince is a misnomer in this context, as the term "demigod” more accurately describes him.[4]
  • There are several figures who are believed to be the progeny of Daedric Princes, but it is unknown if they are demiprinces. Such individuals include: Alandro Sul, Emmeg Gro-Kayra, Haymon Camoran, Molag Grunda, and Ozozzachar.
