Jephre, Elven God of Song and ForestEdit

See Y'ffre.

Jhunal, Rune GodEdit

Jhunal's owl mask, depicting Wise-Wing

The Nordic god of hermetic orders and knowledge, represented by an owl.[1] After falling out of favor with the rest of that pantheon, he became Julianos of the Nine Divines. He is absent in modern Skyrim mythology.[2] Wise-Wing the Owl is associated in northern Tamriel with Jhunal, and is said to warn the unwary away from graveyards and witches' covens during the New Life Festival.[3] Vivec mentioned "JHUNAL" as one of the eight known worlds.[4]

Jode, Big Moon GodEdit

Aldmeri god of the Big Moon. Also called Masser or Mara's Tear. In Khajiiti religion, Jode is only one aspect of the Lunar Lattice, or ja-Kha'jay.[2]

Jone, Little Moon GodEdit

Aldmeri god of the Little Moon. Also called Secunda or Stendarr's Sorrow. In Khajiiti religion, Jone is only one aspect of the Lunar Lattice, or ja-Kha'jay.[2]

Julianos, God of Wisdom and LogicEdit

Julianos, Aedric God of Wisdom and Logic, is one of the Cyrodilic Divines, governing the realms of literature, law, history, and contradiction. He is usually associated with magic, and thus is often revered by wizards. Jhunal, the Nordic father of language and mathematics, fell out of favor in the Nordic pantheon, after which he became Julianos of the Divines. Monastic orders founded by Tiber Septim and dedicated to Julianos are the keepers of the Elder Scrolls. He is particularly venerated among many Imperials and Bretons. As a Divine, he represents the virtue of learning, scholarship, and justice. He is said to "incant the Damned Equation". His symbol is a triangle.

JyggalagEdit

"Once, I ruled this Realm, a world of perfect Order. My dominion expanded across the seas of Oblivion with each passing era." ―Jyggalag

Jyggalag is the Daedric Prince of Order, but until the Third Era not much was known about him in Tamriel beyond his name. His sphere represents logical order and deduction, and has taken account of every detail of the world and of every action that has ever taken place on Mundus or Oblivion, long before they actually happened. Jyggalag commands his own Daedra, the Knights of Order, which are spawned from obelisks summoned by his followers, the Priests of Order. He is viewed as bleak, stern, and colorless, with him and his soldiers lacking originality.
