Overview | A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

The gods of Tamriel are as varied as the many cultures' traditions of worship. Individual gods (used as a general term to indicate any entity worshipped by one of Tamriel's cultures) are listed alphabetically on each of the sub-articles listed above. This article provides some general information about relationships between the different gods.

Types of Gods

Generally, there are several distinct groups into which the various gods fall:

  • Many versions of Anu and Padomay, the two primal forces. These two entities are recognized under various names in most faiths.
  • The et'Ada are the "original spirits",[1] a race of divine beings resulting from the interplay of Anu and Padomay, including:
    • The Aedra combine both Anuic and Padomaic basis;[2] these are the gods who helped to create Mundus.[1]
    • The Daedric Princes have a Padomaic basis;[2] these are the gods who refused to help create Mundus and created their own Planes in Oblivion filled with lesser Daedra.
    • Magna Ge have an Anuic basis;[2] these are the gods who refused to help create Mundus and fled into Aetherius after Magnus, creating the stars while Magnus created the sun.
  • Other divine spirits, or Ada, such as Morihaus and Pelinal Whitestrake, are descended from the et'Ada.
  • On occasion, a mortal, such as Talos and the Tribunal, will achieve apotheosis, becoming a god, or will be worshipped as a god, such as Reman.

Cultural Worship

In Tamriel, cultural pantheons of certain provinces have different gods that they worship, though some gods are worshipped in several areas.

  • In Cyrodiil, worship of either the Nine Divines or the Daedric Princes is common, especially among the native Imperials.
  • In Morrowind, the Daedric Princes and the Tribunal are commonly worshipped, specifically among the native Dunmer.
  • In Skyrim, worship of the old Nordic pantheon still persists in some Holds, while others have adopted the modern Imperial pantheon.

Pantheons

This table contains the names of beings worshipped by some of Tamriel's major races. Notably, Orcs are not listed. This is because they don't have a specific province, but instead a kingdom in High Rock—Orsinium; they predominantly worship Malacath and/or Trinimac.
