N'Gasta (?b- 2E 864)Edit

N'Gasta the Sload was a Sload necromancer who lived in the old wizard's tower on his eponymous island west of Stros M'Kai. He was a legendary servant of Clavicus Vile throughout the Second Era that terrorized the island with his Soul Snare until he was killed in 2E 864 by Cyrus the Redguard, who wielded the Flask of Lillandril. Clavicus Vile viewed him as "a character of remarkable charm and complexity."

Lord Naarifin (? – 4E 175)Edit

Naarifin during the Siege of the Imperial City

Lord Naarifin was a Thalmor general who led the assault on Cyrodiil during the Great War. After the success of his initial assault on Cyrodiil, he attacked and captured the Imperial City. It was said that he was a Boethiah worshipper who intended to bring about a prophecy known as "the Culling", the implementation of which involved mass Daedric summoning. He was defeated in battle by either Emperor Titus Mede II, or, in lesser-known stories, by the Forgotten Hero masquerading as the Emperor. He was then hanged from the White-Gold Tower for thirty-three days. One source claims he was carried away by a winged Daedra on the thirty-fourth.[1][2]

Naaslaarum (?b - 4E 201)Edit

Naaslaarum was a dragon whose name meant "Tooth-Water-Twin" in the Dragon Language.

Naaslaarum and Voslaarum were revered twin dragons, who lived beneath the Frozen Lake within the Forgotten Vale. They were most likely killed at some point and resurrected by Alduin upon his return, although it is possible that they survived until 4E 201.

At some point, in 4E 201, when the Last Dragonborn ventured to the Forgotten Vale, Naaslaarum and Voslaarum were resting beneath the ice of the lake and guarding a word wall. They fought against the hero but were ultimately defeated and slain.

Having had his soul devoured by another dovah, Naaslaarum was killed permanently and cannot be raised again.

Prince Naemon (? - 2E 582)Edit

Prince Naemon was the eldest son of King Hidellith and Kinlady Tuinden. Upon the disappearance of his elder sister Ayrenn, he was named heir in her stead. He studied the Royal Ceremoniarchy for nearly ten years to prepare for his future rule, and in 2E 575 (or 2E 573 according to other sources) he matriculated into the Sapiarchs' Labyrinth. He was noted to seemingly delight in the traditional responsibilities required of an heir. When King Hidellith passed in 2E 580, Naemon made preparations to speak the eighty-eight day Coronation Liturgy, which would enable him to inherit the throne. However, Ayrenn made an unexpected return and claimed the throne of Alinor, assuming the position on the 7th of Frost Fall.

At some point, Naemon married High Kinlady Estre, the canonreeve of Skywatch. During the Alliance War of 2E 582, he and Estre accompanied Queen Ayrenn in her visitations to Aldmeri Dominion territory, and eventually Ayrenn ordered Estre's death for leading the Veiled Heritance, an Altmeri nationalist group. He was visibly distressed by Estre's death, but carried on to make preparations for Ayrenn's ratification ceremony in the Orrery of Elden Root. He used the opportunity to betray his sister and entered the heart of the Orrery. The Orrery painfully transformed him into an ogrim, which made him fly into a rage. He was soon killed. Queen Ayrenn covered up the truth of her brother's demise, and claimed that Naemon died a hero.

However, his corpse was taken by his devoted attendant, Vicereeve Pelidil, who assumed leadership of the remnants of the Veiled Heritance and stole the Staff of Magnus from its vault in Marbruk. Using its power, he returned Naemon from the dead as a lich to lead armies of undead and unleash corruption in Greenshade, with plans to supplant all of Valenwood with a realm of darkness known as the Shadow Wood. Using the Staff, Naemon attempted to corrupt the Heart of Valenwood in the Ayleid ruins of Hectahame. However, his shade was ultimately destroyed by Dominion forces who infiltrated the ruins.

In death, Naemon's soul was claimed by Molag Bal, who brought him to his palace of Heart's Grief in Coldharbour to be tortured for all eternity, trapped beneath a sheet of ice. The Five Companions encountered him here, but were unable to free him from his torment. However, his spirit is believed to have eventually passed on to Aetherius.

Witch Naenra Waerr (fl. before 2E 582)Edit

Witch Naenra Waerr was an ancient and legendary witch and crafter. She was a legendary figure within Reachfolk legends and traditions, and was responsible for the creation, or, according to other sources, enchantment of Umbra, a Daedric artifact designed with the sole purpose of the entrapment of souls. It was created at the request of Clavicus Vile, who wanted the sword as a tool of mischief which would send him souls from the mortal realm.

According to some versions of the tale Naenra was believed to be Daedric Prince Sheogorath in disguise.

Nahfahlaar (?b - 2E 864)Edit

Nahfahlaar on the floating island of Dragonhold

Nahfahlaar (meaning Fury-For-Water in the Dragon Language), also known as Nafaalilargus (sometimes spelled Nafalilargus or N'falilaargas), was a red dragon who often allied with mortals for his own protection. He acknowledged that dragons are bound by Fenjuntiid, the will of Akatosh, meaning that it is in a dragon's nature to pursue domination. However, he was willing to ally himself with select mortals in order to bide time and ensure his presence for events that may require his intervention. In more ancient times, he allied with the Dragonguard and Pride of Alkosh to defeat his archenemy, Laatvulon. He took a liking to Ja'darri, a member of the Pride, being remembered in the legends of the moon priests as the Red Beast. He would later go on to serve as a powerful soldier of the Empire under Tiber Septim, before his physical body was eventually killed at the hands of Cyrus the Restless. Due to the immortal nature of dragon souls, Nahfahlaar isn't truly dead and could be raised again.

Nahfahlaar repeatedly allied himself with mortal protectors, which had prevented the Dragonguard from eliminating him. The earliest recorded alliance was with King Casimir II of Wayrest, which the Dragonguard successfully ended in 2E 369.

Nahagliiv (?b - 4E 201)Edit

Nahagliiv is a dragon whose name means "Fury Burn Wither" in the Dragon Language.

Nahagliiv was among the dragons to die during the Dragon War era, with his remains being gathered by the Dragon Cult and buried in a dragon mound west of Rorikstead. By 2E 373, local tales still named him as the dragon buried near the town, and the Blades recorded him in their atlas of dragons as being deceased by report.

Upon his return, Alduin began the process of resurrecting the many dead dragons buried throughout Skyrim in ancient times by the Dragon Cult. Nahagliiv made a reappearance approximately before the reformed Blades unsealed Sky Haven Temple, and attempted to terrorize the town of Rorikstead. The Last Dragonborn slew Nahagliiv and absorbed his soul. Having had his soul devoured by another dovah, Nahagliiv was killed permanently and cannot be raised again.

Ambassador-Lord Naigon Strale (fl. 3E 417)Edit

Naigon Strale was a nobleman and an expert mage that was active in the late-Third Era around the Warp in the West. In his time, he was an agent of the Blades and even an ambassador to Emperor Uriel Septim VII. He makes an appearance in the historical fiction book, the Mystery of Talara, in which the book describes him as "a stocky, well-dressed young man with a bald pate and a commanding presence of authority." In the book, he is an important character that became involved in a greater conspiracy with the lost Princess of Camlorn and he also had a manservant named Gnorbooth.

Tree-Minder Na-Kesh (?b - (2E 582)Edit

Na-Kesh was the Tree-Minder of the Xit-Xaht tribe and a skilled alchemist. She was obsessed with returning Black Marsh to the pre-Duskfall way of life, and made use of her mad Hist's tainted sap to this end.

The psychotic Hist of Mazzatun, Tsono-Xuhil, does not possess ordinary sap. It instead weeps an ominous substance known colloquially as amber plasm from its bark, which drives those who ingest or bathe in it mad. Na-Kesh performed cruel alchemical experiments with the amber plasm, and it was through these experiments that she was able to harness the power of the substance. She manipulated the plasm in just the right way to enhance a Saxhleel's speed and strength, and did so to herself.

She planned on distributing a brew made of the mad Hist's sap to the whole Xit-Xaht tribe so they could ascend, conquer Black Marsh, and eventually take all of Tamriel. She was defeated in 2E 582 by the Undaunted, just after the Xit-Xaht raided the village of the nearby Su-Zahleel tribe and enslaved its inhabitants.

Mage Naleldil‎‎ (fl. before 2E 582)Edit

Mage Naleldil was a mycoturge, and a renowned master of arcane husbandry who created unique and exotic mounts and pets infused with fungal spores known as the Gloomspore creatures. Her creations were sought after by scholars, adventurers, and anyone in need of a reliable and sturdy companion. Using her extensive knowledge of alchemy and mycoturgy, Mage Naleldil crafted a range of mounts with distinct features and properties. She integrated research left behind by Ahzidal, a grand Nord enchanter in her work.

Nandor Beraid (fl. 3E 2nd century)Edit

The champion of Empress Katariah. His defeat of Raphalas Eul, and the political implications of the duel, are discussed in the novel The Armorer's Challenge.[3] He was renowned as possibly one of the greatest warriors who ever lived, and it is said he could adeptly wield any weapon ever invented. However, he drowned in the Sea of Ghosts when he was unable to speedily remove his armor.[4]

High King Nargi gro-Barok (fl. First Era)Edit

High King Nargi gro-Barok was a conquering Orc king who was active early in Tamriel's history. According to legends in the Hall of Heroes, Nargi was given a thrice-forged Orcish steel blade as a gift from Mauloch himself, titled the Sword of the High King.

King Narilmor (?b - 2E 582)Edit

Narilmor was the king of the Ayleid city of Garlas Malatar. A zealous adherent of the Daedric Prince Meridia, he was regarded as Meridia's second favorite champion after Umaril the Unfeathered. Garlas Malatar and its people prospered under Narilmor's reign, and he was beloved despite the harsh punishments he meted out for violations of Meridian law. In the years after the Alessian Slave Rebellion, Merdia presented half of the fabled Wrathstone to Garlas Malatar with a warning of the impending fall of the Ayleid Empire. Narilmor took charge of the Wrathstone's protection and sealed off his city, denying aid and asylum to Ayleid refugees from other kingdoms to ensure the artifact remained safe. It is believed that Garlas Malatar was ultimately destroyed from within by internal conflict or sabotage brought on by Narilmor resorting to ever more ruthless ways to silence dissent as his people turned against him. Centuries later, in 2E 582, Narilmor survived as a Meridian Purified, a servant of Meridia who had been granted immortality at the cost of his free will. He was finally vanquished by a group of adventurers, putting an end to his three thousand year vigil over the Wrathstone.

Countess Narina Carvain (fl. 3E 433)Edit

Member of the Carvain family and Imperial ruler of Bruma during the Oblivion Crisis. The Nibenean Heartlander had a reputation for being a devout chapel goer, a respected ruler, and a cunning and ruthless negotiator, though she was also known for sharp-dealing and treachery.[5] Not that she wasn't popular; her people seemed to think she was tough, cold, and cranky, but also believed that Bruma was in good hands. She was a supporter of High Chancellor Ocato during the Crisis. She was also something of a scholar and an avid collector of Akaviri artifacts.[6] The Countess funded an expedition which rediscovered the Akaviri fort at Pale Pass, which had been covered by a rockslide.[7] Together with the Hero of Kvatch and Martin Septim, she orchestrated the Battle of Bruma, one of the most epic and crucial victories against the Daedra during the Crisis.[6]

Naryu Virian (fl. 2E 582)Edit

Naryu Virian was a female Dunmer assassin whose skill had earned her the title known as the Mother of Blades within the Morag Tong, and the Beautiful Darkness after her beauty.

Nataly Dravarol (fl. 3E 433 - 4E 182)Edit

Also spelled "Natalia". Cartographer who created a map of Cyrodiil in 3E 433 and a map of Skyrim in 4E 182.[8][9]

Matron Nathari (?b - 2E 582)Edit

Nathari of the Ghostsong Clan was a Witch who was Matron of her people as of 2E 582. She took over the leadership from her older sister Arana by promising Namira's blessing to her clan members if they followed the old ways. She led the clan until her death in 2E 582. Under her leadership, the clan made an alliance with the Gray Host.

Archmagister Nelos Otheri (fl. 2E 582)Edit

Nelos Otheri was Archmagister of the Vvardenfell chapter of the Telvanni Council, based in Sadrith Mora. He ruled over the tower of Tel Naga, and his Mouth was Angharal Suth. He was also renowned for his mastery of mycoturgy, and served as a patron to a group of esteemed mycoturges acknowledged as the finest in the entire Morrowind. In addition, he extended his support to Magister Varkenel's endeavors in experimenting with the creation of new animal species, particularly the Vvardvarks.

Master Neloth (fl. 3E 427 - 4E 201)Edit

Master Neloth is a Mage Lord and Councilor of House Telvanni. In 3E 427, he was Master of Sadrith Mora, and resided there in the tower of Tel Naga where his Mouth was Arara Uvulas. Neloth is at least seven hundred and seventy five years old. He sported a collection of rare treasures, which at one point included Mehrunes' Razor, although these were often stolen by other Telvanni. He also enjoyed kidnapping the daughters of Redoran Councilors, an interest he shared with another prominent Telvanni, Divayth Fyr. A gifted enchanter, he studied and collected staffs made by Azra Nightwielder and showed a fondness for canis root tea. Along with the other Telvanni councilors, he recognized the Nerevarine as Hortator.

Neloth has difficulty with the concept that other people matter, and judges their health and well-being solely based on his personal comfort and needs. Despite his stubbornness, he is no fool, as he recognizes power and that power in others must be respected.

During his time in Sadrith Mora, several of his fellow Telvanni councilors were thought to have been assassinated at the behest of Arch-Mage Trebonius Artorius of the Mages Guild. Neloth survived and went on to become the most powerful wizard of House Telvanni, maybe even the most powerful wizard in all of Morrowind. He currently has multiple goals, but all of them involve returning to Vvardenfell and becoming Arch-Mage, although to others it appears that he is accumulating power for power's sake.

Kinlord Nemfarion (?b - 2E 582)Edit

Founder and ruler of Corgrad on Summerset Isle at the time of the Thrassian Plague c. 1E 2200. He drowned the city in an effort to stop the disease from spreading, then used blood sacrifices from the city's survivors to prolong his and his family's lives by magical means in a desiccated condition while he searched for a permanent cure. To these survivors and their descendants, who lived in caverns underground, Nemfarion and his kin became known as "the Saviors", since his blood magic suppressed the symptoms of the Plague. He attempted to claim the life of a distant descendant of his own clan named Faidur as part of a ritual to revive himself fully, but his servants were defeated by the Vestige and Nemfarion himself crumbled into dust when the ritual was broken.[10][11]

Hortator Indoril Nerevar (?b - ~1E 700)Edit

Lord Indoril Nerevar, also called Saint Nerevar Moon-and-Star, the Champion of Azura, the Hero of Red Mountain, and Godkiller, was the Chimer King of Resdayn (modern-day Morrowind). As the Hortator, or Great Ashkhan, of the united Chimer people, he forged an alliance with the Dwemer, and he was one of the founders of the First Council, uniting all the people of Resdayn for the first time in 1E 416. Nerevar then took on the title of "First Councilor". The alliance eventually broke down, leading to the War of the First Council. At the climactic Battle of Red Mountain circa 1E 700, Nerevar led the Chimer to victory, though he died shortly after the battle under disputed circumstances.

Under the Tribunal Temple, he was known as the Herald of the Triune Way. Ashlander prophecies of his "rebirth" as the Nerevarine and heroic return to Morrowind fueled the creation of the Nerevarine Cult. St. Nerevar the Captain, patron of Warriors and Statesmen, became one of the foremost saints of the Dunmeri faith, along with his wife, Almalexia the Warden, Lord Sotha Sil the Magus, Lord Vivec the Poet, and Saint Veloth the Pilgrim. Nerevar became the patron saint of House Redoran.

Nerevarine (fl. 3E 427)Edit

The Nerevarine, the prophesied Incarnate, is the reincarnation of Chimeri warlord Indoril Nerevar. The Nerevarine arrived in Morrowind in 3E 427 by the order of Emperor Uriel Septim VII, having been sent to Vvardenfell as a prisoner of the Empire. His arrival was directly linked to a prophecy which dictated that Lord Indoril Nerevar would be reincarnated and return to Morrowind to defeat Dagoth Ur and restore the glory of Resdayn. The hero fulfilled the prophecy, ending the Blight. In recognition of this, they were also known as Nerevar-Born-Again, Nerevar Reborn, Starkborn, Moon-and-Star Reborn, Hortator, Mourner of the Tribe Unmourned, Redeemer of the False Gods, and Blodskaal.

As destiny unfolded, they battled against living gods, and then, in the frozen wastes of Solstheim, against the champions of the Daedric Prince Hircine. Rumors swirled at the end of the Third Era that the Nerevarine went on an expedition to Akavir and has not been heard from since.

Countess Nevenia Caro (fl. 2E 569 - 582)Edit

Countess Nevenia Caro was an Imperial noblewoman who held the position of ruler over the city of Leyawiin in the Province of Blackwood during the turbulent times of the Three Banners War in the Interregnum of the Second Era. Although she bore the official title of leader of the region, she largely relinquished her practical authority to the Chamber of Legates.

Never-Gives-Up (fl. 2E 582 or earlier)Edit

Never-Gives-Up was an Argonian war hero of some renown, who perished at some point before or during Three Banners War in 2E 582.

Little is known about Never-Gives-Up's life, but as of 2E 582 several mounted, mummified Argonian tails with attached engraved plaques could be found all across Tamriel. Engravings on each of those plaques claimed that the tail they were attached to was real and once belonged to this war hero. They were among various oddities sought by the collectors.

Nesmyt (fl. 3E 370)Edit

Nesmyt (also spelled Nezmyt) was the leader of the Scenarist Guild, which he ruled with an iron fist. Originally, Nesmyt was an Acolyte of the Mages Guild, but he was looked down upon by his colleagues due to his low rank. To rise in rank, he had to pledge fealty to Vychamp, the Mercenary Guild's self-styled leader. Nesmyt would not do this, as Vychamp had emasculated his children out of jealousy over his spouse. Nesmyt also began to hallucinate in his sleep.

It is unknown how Nesmyt rose to become the leader of the Scenarist Guild, which had existed for hundreds of years prior to his tortured path to membership in the Mages Guild. In 3E 370, Nesmyt created a sect of Imperial scribes who were charged with recording all historical events, beginning with the defeat of Jagar Tharn in 3E 399. Smuggled out by an anonymous renegade guild member, the book, now known as The Daggerfall Chronicles, was hidden in a shrine to the Oracle in the Dragontail Mountains.

Mane Nhad-hatta (fl. 2E 864)Edit

Nhad-hatta also known as Cat Lord was the Mane of the Elsweyr at around 2E 864, during Tiber Septim's conquest of Tamriel. By the time Tiber Septim entered the fray to claim the Imperial City, the Kingdom of Rimmen returned to Elsweyr, where they paid tribute to the Mane for protection.

He and his tribe resided in Torval, where they lived in luxurious palaces built from massive timbers of Valenwood oak. He was often seen in day-long meditations atop his palanquin, held up by his inexhaustible cathay-raht servants. He was known to refuse an Imperial diplomat a meeting at his private palace even though he had been promised an audience with him. The envoy was cast out from the area by one of the Warrior Guards because humans have been traditionally forbidden to trespass on these estates.

During his rule, his province made a treaty with the Second Aldmeri Dominion.

Night Mother (?b - ?d)Edit

At the head of the Dark Brotherhood hierarchy is the Night Mother, an immortal spirit who is revered and worshipped by the Brotherhood. She is only ever met face-to-face in very exceptional circumstances and is seen as a phantom-like form. When a person prays for the death of another, the Night Mother hears and passes on the details of the prayer to her Listener. At this point, the Listener informs a Speaker, who then goes to meet the hiring party in order to draw up a contract. According to Dark Brotherhood beliefs, she is the wife of Sithis and bore five children.

It is unclear who the Night Mother is exactly. In the book Fire and Darkness: The Brotherhoods of Death, the Night Mother is identified as the Daedra Prince Mephala. In another book entitled Sacred Witness, the Night Mother is identified as a former Thieves Guild member. And in the well known 2920 series of books she is seen as head of the Morag Tong, because the Dark Brotherhood only split well into the Second Era. Another woman claimed to be the Night Mother is likely to have lived during the Second Era: although the woman represented by the statue in Bravil lived in the First Era, which suggests the two are not the same person.

Nikulas (fl. 2E)Edit

Nikulas was an Atmoran warrior from the Second Era. He and four companions embarked on a quest to find Sovngarde. However, Nikulas, Erlendr, and Hunroor were betrayed by the wizard Grimkell, who turned them into stone pillars at Brodir Grove on Solstheim. They were avenged by Ulfgar the Unending, who killed the wizard. All of the friends eventually found their way to Sovngarde.

Nilene Devierin (fl. 2E 582)Edit

Lady Nilene Devierin of Stormhaven, (also spelled Devieren), was a diplomat of the Daggerfall Covenant, serving High King Emeric as the Royal Envoy to the Reach. She also authored reports to High King Emeric, detailing her activities in the court of Ard Caddach and providing a description of Ard Caddach himself.

Flower King Nilichi (fl. early 1E)Edit

Flower King Nilichi was one of the Ayleid kings active prior to or during the Alessian Slave Rebellion. He was responsible for the eradication of a Nedic tribe, the Men-of-ge, through a great sacrifice to a long-forgotten Insect God whose name was lost to history.

He is considered an infamous Ayleid King, compared to figures such as Fire King Hadhuul, Haromir of Copper and Tea, Gordhaur the Shaper, and Umaril the Unfeathered.

Chief Noldan (fl. ~1E 1030)Edit

Chief Noldan was a Reachfolk clan leader during the Empress Hestra's conquest of the Reach in circa 1E 1030. At that time, during the First Era, the region of the Reach was ruled by ten Reach kings. When Hestra's forces were taking over the region they eventually encountered Noldan's clan. According to the Imperial accounts, he eventually surrendered and submitted to the forces of the Empire. In a cunning act of treachery he gifted the commander of the Imperial forces his flint spear purportedly dipped in blood. It turned out that the spear was in fact covered in lethal and very potent poison rather than blood. Those who handled the item before the deception was discovered suffered miserable deaths.

Nolovan (fl. 2E 582)Edit

Nolovan was a renowned Reachfolk craftsman and Dwemer metal dealer active during the times of the Three Banners War of the Second Era. He possessed considerable expertise in Deep Folk and their machinery, establishing him as one of the most knowledgeable individuals on the subject in the city of Markarth during his times.

Queen Nulfaga (3E 336 - ?d)Edit

Queen Nulfaga (later titled Dowager Queen, Queen Mother, and variations thereof, also known as the Mad Witch of the Wrothgarian Mountains) was the wife of King Arslan II and mother of King Lysandus, both of the Kingdom of Daggerfall. Nulfaga was a renowned mystic, and kept as her familiar a dragon, Skakmat. In 3E 401, Nulfaga located the Mantella, the heart of the ancient golem Numidium, in her astral travels.

During the War of Betony in 3E 403, Nulfaga foresaw her son's doom and withdrew to her castle, Shedungent, in the Wrothgarian Mountains. When word came that Lysandus had died during the Battle of Cryngaine Field, slain by an arrow to the throat, the news drove her mad with grief. In reality, King Lysandus had been assassinated before the battle, and when his ghost began haunting the streets of Daggerfall at night, Emperor Uriel Septim VII sent an agent of the Blades to investigate. This agent found Nulfaga alive (but still mad). Nulfaga regained her senses after the agent unmasked and took down Lysandus' murderer, allowing his spirit to rest at last. Nulfaga later sent the agent to Aetherius to retrieve the Mantella, an act which led to the phenomenon known as the Warp in the West.

Queen Numara (?b - 2E 576)Edit

Numara was Queen of Anequina, the northern kingdom of Elsweyr. She was a Moon-Singer and an owner of the amulet of the Anequina Sharp-Tongue, which served as the key of the Moon-Gate and could be her direct descendant. During her rule events of the Knahaten Flu and Varen's Rebellion took place.

Numinex (?b - ?d)Edit

Numinex was a fearsome dragon famous for his battle with Olaf One-Eye in the First Era, which occurred some time before 1E 420 when Olaf became High King and ended the War of Succession.

A few ancient bard texts assert Numinex was particularly foul-tempered because he was extremely old. In these accounts, the dragon spends his final years terrorizing the countryside before flying off to the top of Mount Anthor to die in peace, but was interrupted by the opportunistic Olaf. This version of the story is questionable, however, as dragons do not actually die of old age. Regardless, Numinex had wiped out entire villages, burned cities, and killed countless Nords. Along with a few trusted warriors, Olaf confronted and fought Numinex at his lair atop Mount Anthor. The two battled, blade against claw, by some accounts for days.

Eventually, their battle incorporated the thu'um, and the two engaged in an epic shouting duel. Finally, Numinex collapsed from a combination of injury and sheer exhaustion. Somehow—and this detail is conspicuously absent in virtually every account—Olaf managed to convey the dragon all the way back to the capital city of Whiterun. By Olaf's decree, the city's keep was renovated to become a prison for Numinex. Since then, the great keep has been called "Dragonsreach". This feat granted Olaf grand renown, which eventually led to him becoming the High King of Skyrim.

Numinex was apparently driven half-mad by many, many years of loneliness and captivity, though Paarthurnax would manage to visit him from time to time. While it is claimed Numinex eventually escaped, his skull can still be seen hanging above the Jarl's throne at Dragonsreach. According to some sources Numinex paid for their life by providing the kings of Skyrim with draconic armor. Due to the nature of dragons, Numinex is not truly dead and could be raised again, although his scattered remains make this an unlikely possibility. </noinclude>

Lord Nunex Faleria (fl. ~1E 361)Edit

Nunex Faleria was a Nedic lord and member of the regency council that oversaw the Kingdom of Kvatch circa 1E 361.

Nurarion the Perfect (fl. Merethic Era)Edit

Nurarion the Perfect, also known as the Voiceless was an Altmer legendary hero and a member of the Sunhold royal family and of Khunzar-ri's Kra'jun, who made a deal with Clavicus Vile for great powers to fight off Maormer invasion led by King Orgnum.

Queen Nurnhilde (?b - 2E 572)Edit

Daughter of Queen Mabjaarn Flame-Hair of Windhelm. She was the elder sister of twins Jorunn and Fildgor, and thus fated to take the throne.[12] During the Akaviri Invasion of 2E 572, Queen Mabjaarn went down defending Windhelm, so Nurnhilde briefly assumed rulership before she was also killed during the invasion.[13] For this, she earned the title "The Brief Queen". She was succeeded by Jorunn,[12] and buried in the catacombs of Fort Morvunskar with the Crown of Freydis.

During the Alliance War of 2E 582, Fildgor stole Nurnhilde's body along with the Crown of Freydis. He planned to summon her soul and fuse it with his, forcing the crown to recognize him as the rightful ruler of Skyrim. Her spirit appeared to warn soldiers of the Ebonheart Pact of her brother's plans.[14]

Nuulion (fl. 2E 5th - 7th centuries)Edit

Nuulion was a master smith of the Summerset Isle of Altmer origins, and a known keeper of the secret of the arts of crafting Elven armor from moonstone and quicksilver. Little else is known about him, but he was active between the fifth century and the seventh century of the Second Era. Although some sources claim that slavery (of other races than Goblins) was illegal in Summerset as of 2E 582, Nuulion was a known slave owner, both before and after that time. One of his slaves, a Dunmer named Ulvul Llaren, worked the bellows for him for three centuries.

Ulvul managed to escape his captivity and returned to mainland Tamriel at some point during the seventh century of the Second Era. To punish his previous, cruel owner, he revealed all the secrets of the Altmer armor and weapon smithing he knew to the world, such as the key information regarding moonstone as a key ingredient, and the instruction specyfing that salt water must be used to quench the hot metal.

Forge-Wife Nuzava (fl. before 2E 582)Edit

Forge-Wife Nuzava was a highly respected Orc smith. She played a significant role in the Morkul Clan as one of its prominent members, responsible for establishing their distinct style of crafting arms and armor. Nuzava was one of the most revered metalworkers of her time.

Poet-Champion Nynelle Dumaris (fl. 2E 400)Edit

Poet of Galen Nynelle Dumaris was a Breton poet active during the times of the Akaviri Potentate. She was the author of numerous poems, including famous sonnets A Lissome Sprite and Fearless as the Sun. She was the victor of the poet tournament held in the Imperial City and was acknowledged by the Potentate Savirien-Chorak in 2E 400 who named her the Poet-Champion.
