PadomayEdit

Padomay, also called the Darkness, Padhome, Akel to the Redguards, Sithis, or Fadomai to the Khajiit, is the quintessential form of change. One of the two primal forces, the other being Anu, Padomay is the personification of the primordial force of chaos and change who dwells in the Void. Creation myths paint Padomay as Anu's brother, and the interplay between them created Nir, a personification of the Aurbis. Padomay was embittered by the love between Anu and Nir, and sought to destroy their love child, Creation. He killed Nir and sundered Creation, but Anu salvaged the remnants, then saved them from further harm by pulling his brother and himself outside of Time forever.

Gods with a "Padomaic" basis include most Daedric princes, who, as the Blood of Padomay, represent the forces of change, as does his "son" Lorkhan. His blood and Anu's mingled to create the Aedra, giving them the capacity for both good and evil. While Padomay and Padomaic gods are usually considered "evil", such labels are often thought to be inapplicable, and that the only true description is that Anu and Padomay are opposite, antithetical to each other, evenly matched, and inextricably linked.

PeryiteEdit

Peryite is one of the Seventeen Daedric Princes that dwell within the realm of Oblivion. His sphere of influence includes tasks, natural order (to not be confused with the perfect order of Jyggalag), contamination and pestilence. Peryite's sphere is described as "ordering the lowest orders of Oblivion". He is also known as the Taskmaster, the Blighted Lord, the Lord of Infection and Pestilence, the Bringer of Disease and Pestilence, the Lord of the Natural Order, the Daedric Prince of Pestilence, the Master of Tasks, and the Lord of Abundant Pus and Bountiful Vomit. Peryite "blesses" his worshipers with diseases, and is considered one of the more destructive Princes. He is typically depicted as a green four-legged dragon, and often takes on the form of one, with the likeness to Akatosh seen as some primordial and curious jest. Peryite occasionally appears as ghostly apparitions of vermin, such as skeevers. The coiling, snake-like Dragon and the skeever are two of Peryite's most sacred symbols. The Nordic goddess Kyne is said to give Peryite the spirits of skeevers when they die.

Peryite is considered one of the weakest of the Princes.

PhynasterEdit

Phynaster the Guardian is the hero-god of the Summerset Isles. While he is not part of the main of Aldmeri Pantheon, his worship persist through significant cults throughout the province. He taught the Altmer to extend their lives a hundred more years, simply by shortening their stride. Phynaster is associated with the Ring of Phynaster, that comes and goes throughout time between different warriors. It is said to be the source of his longevity, but it may have also been his undoing. It was rumored that the Wharf Rats killed Phynaster for his ring and when he was buried at the Forest of Elborn, they took it for themselves. However, this conflicts with Altmeri, Falmeri and Bretonic accounts of him being a deity.
