Zebiden-jo (or Zibbiden-jo)[1] was the Mane of the Khajiiti people during the early Second Era, before the unification of the Sixteen Kingdoms. Little is known about Zebiden-jo's life. It is known, however, that he faced one of his parent's spirit and Argonian soul reavers during his trials to become the Mane circa 2E 182. The trials reflected the challenges faced before their ascension.[1]

He died at some point before the unification of Elsweyr and formation of the Elsweyr Confederacy in 2E 309. His remains are preserved in the Tomb of the Manes in Rimmen Necropolis, a huge tomb complex located southwest of the Rimmen itself. He was buried together with other prominent Manes: Jinninji-ri and Tullar-dra.[2] His spirit's rest was briefly interrupted in 2E 582 when The Vestige escorted the remains of the ancient Khajiiti ruler Jora-ri to the burial chamber in the Tomb of the Manes.[3][4]



  • Although Rid-Thar-ri'Datta was dubbed the First Mane there were numerous Manes, Zebiden-jo among them, who lived chronologically before him.[5] Lawrence Schick stated that it could be "transcription error, but that would invalidate all these lovely theories" and as such refused to confirm that notion.[UOL 1] Founding date of the Pridehome in the late First Era further confirms existence of Manes prior to the ascension of Rid-Thar-ri'Datta.[6]
