"There was another Daedric Prince! My Prince! A Prince that saved me and preserved just enough of my memory so that I could one day save them in return. A Prince whose jealous and craven siblings cast down and wiped from the annals of history."

Ithelia, known as the Prince of Paths, the Mistress of the Untraveled Road, the Unseen, the Fate-Changer, The Dark Reflection, the Last Tomorrow, and She Who Saw and Wept is the Daedric Prince of Paths.[1][2] It is said that Prisoners exist by her will.[3] She supposedly had the ability to shape destiny, alter fate and rearrange its strands according to her whim. Considering this power a threat to the order of the universe, Hermaeus Mora erased all traces of her memory from existence in order to preserve reality.[4] Ithelia left behind her loyal servant, Torvesard, as a contingency plan in her absence.[5][4] As of 2E 582, she was unknown to the academic community.[6]

Ithelia's realm of Oblivion is Mirrormoor.[7]


Star OrphanEdit

Hermaeus Mora discussing the threat of Ithelia

Originally the eldest member of the Star-Orphans, Magna Ge that followed the parabolas that led away from Magnus, Ithelia was known as the White Star, the Prime Archon and the Queen of Fates Unwritten. She was responsible for deciding that fate had a chance to be born. At some point, she was shown the Infinite Abyss and the Indeterminate Sea (Mora Obscura), which revealed the Indefinite Limits of creation.

She identified the harmony within duality shown by the dichotomy of Anui-El and Sithis. She noticed this unity of opposites contained starlight and endless possibility beyond cosmic interplay. She was named the Colors of Light. After she saw infinite possibilities, Ithelia deemed the Time God mad, who in nothingness saw those endless possibilities first yet decided to layer linear time on top of it. However, Ithelia soon learned why his insanity is all that is and could be. From this lesson, the Prime Archon endeavored to cleave a path through the everything to reach Numancia.[3]

Ithelia found worshippers in the Mythic Era. Her Ayleid followers prayed and offered sacrifices to her before embarking on a journey.[UOL 1] She had a significant amount of ties to the region known today as the West Weald.[7]


Ithelia's Prison

When Ithelia first emerged, Hermaeus Mora foresaw her unraveling reality. Her ability to shape destiny as she saw fit had already damaged the threads of fate, so in an effort to prevent further harm, he gathered the other Daedric Princes in a moot where he proposed they remove her from existence. Part of his solution involved erasing Ithelia from their memory entirely. Seeing the damage she had already caused to the fabric of fate, many of the Princes agreed to assist him in the matter: however, Peryite and Vaermina objected to the idea. Against their wishes, he cast a spell that wiped all memory of Ithelia's existence from the minds of his fellow Princes: records of Ithelia's existence and knowledge of her location was all forgotten by Daedra and mortal alike. This would end up becoming Mora's most closely guarded secret.[1][8]



The Ayleids of Essondul worshipped Ithelia as the Prince of Paths.[9]


The Recollection was a Bosmer cult dedicated to Ithelia. They felt a certain emptiness plaguing Nirn, an "aching hole" where something should be, but nothing is.[10] They sought to fix it by recovering "what was forgotten" and restoring Ithelia.[11]

A Crystal Atronach

The Shardborn are the Dremora servants of Ithelia.[7] For milennia, the Dremora Torvesard was Ithelia's last remaining servant, having had just enough of his memory preserved to come and save her.[5] Ithelia has many glass-like crystalline servants in her service, they often took more familiar forms such as dragons, mantikoras, mind terrors, and hollow sentinels.[7][12] Among her more unique servants are crystal atronachs, crystaljacks, fractured remnants, mirrorplasms, and shattered shards. Tho'at Replicanum is a Daedra Lord composed of living glass like these servants, who was responsible for invading the Infinite Archive.[13] The Blind was a glass-like large Dremora servant of Ithelia who invaded the Bedlam Veil.[14]
