Morrowind:Daedra

Morrowind: Creatures

This article is about the lesser Daedra found in Morrowind. For quests from the Daedric Princes, see Daedric Quests.

Daedra are divine beings that did not take part in the creation of the Mundus, and thus retain the full breadth of their power. They have a very real impact on the mortal realm; in one way or another, Daedric influence touches everyone on Tamriel.

The word "Daedra" is of Aldmeri origin, and roughly means "not our ancestors", as opposed to Aedra—"ancestors". Technically, only the plural is written "Daedra", but this word is frequently used in singular as well. The proper singular form is "Daedroth", but that has come to refer to a specific species of Daedra. Different cultures have their own myths and names for Daedra, as well.

Daedra are often referred to as demons, but this is misleading. All Daedra have a penchant for extremes and are therefore capable of tremendous acts of devastation, but their different spheres make them apply their power in different ways, and their infinite diversity makes speaking about them generally difficult. Thus, it is often impossible to accurately label them as "good" or "evil"; the one thing that can be stated with certainty is the Daedra are beyond mortal comprehension (as mortals seem to be beyond Daedric comprehension).

Daedra come in many forms. At the top are the various Daedric Princes that are commonly worshipped as gods. Below them are those that are highly intelligent such as the Dremora. There are many lesser beings known to be in league with these greater powers, but whether each type constitutes actual Daedra is unknown.

A Daedroth's physical form can be ruined, but it cannot be truly killed; the soul (more specifically known as the animus or vestige) of a slain Daedroth returns to the void of Oblivion until it manages to coalesce into a physical form again. A slain Daedroth is often said to have been "banished" or "purged" instead of "killed" to reflect this. It is not known what happens to a Daedroth killed in Aetherius, though it has been suggested that this may be the one way to permanently kill them.

Daedra are great imitators, and their creations are described as mimicking things found on Nirn in an outlandish or even corrupted way. They are capable of creating seemingly indestructible and mighty daedric armor and weaponry through dark rituals.

A bipedal species of Daedra with a large, crocodile-like snout. Daedroths have excellent melee and spellcasting abilities and should be confronted with caution by experienced adventurers only. Their hearts are commonly sought for their magical properties.

DremoraEdit

 
Dremora

Intelligent and powerful war spirits in the service of Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon, Dremora are powerful foes and typically carry a range of high quality weaponry. Traditionally, Dremora are courteous and aware, but in many cases arrogant. However, this can only be sourced from the few Dremora that actually speak in the game.

Golden SaintEdit

 
Golden Saint

These female Daedra are the spawn of Sheogorath and are feared for their combat abilities. They spawn with high-level weaponry and shields, and have the highest soul value of any generic Daedra type. These creatures can be found in tombs, shrines, and wandering the Grazelands. They can also be summoned by Summon Golden Saint. Golden Saints are the only source in the game for the useful Daedric tower shield.

HungerEdit

 
Hunger

The Hunger is one of the many servants of the Daedric Prince Boethiah and is known to be capable of quickly destroying its opponents' armor and weapons. The hunger uses its long tongue to attack as well as its claws and spells. A summoned hunger can make a useful guardian against a well-armored foe.

It is one of the two creatures in the game without unique sound effects - it shares sounds with the alit.
