Prior to the Riddle'Thar replacing the ancient theology of the Khajiit, [[Lore:Spirits of Amun-dro|ancient texts]] were written by Amun-dro, the Silent Priest, who categorized the spirits as Sky, Worldly, Wandering, or Adversarial Spirits. Some that hold the modern religious beliefs of the Riddle'Thar consider these writings a blasphemy due to their deference and respect for darker spirits, such as suggesting Azurah walked the realm of Hermorah as a friend. Additionally, they were considered dangerous due to the fact that they were created during the time that Khajiit held scattered beliefs, with sixteen different faiths competing against each other, that "tumbled and scratched their way through history, competing for the souls of all Khajiit." However, this did not stop Khajiit from seeking out the knowledge of the ancient beliefs that had been displaced.{{ref|name=ESOESA|{{Cite Book|Epistle on the Spirits of Amun-dro}}}}

Featured prominently in a Khajiit's spiritual journey is "the Path", a road they take during their journey through life, while avoiding temptations that would lead them astray so they could ultimately reach a sort of enlightment. To modern Khajiit, this would be the Riddle'Thar theology, and how each Khajiit reaches their fate or place in the universe varies per Khajiit. It can mean finally achieving the right to rule for those of royal blood, or simply perishing.{{ref|name=ONIJD|[[Online:Inisashu-jo|Inisashu-jo]]'s dialogue in [[Online:Online|ESO]]}} Amun-dro's writings detail the "Many Paths of time",{{ref|name=ESOJD|[[ON:Ja'darri|Ja'darri]]'s dialogue during [[ON:The Dragonguard|The Dragonguard]] in [[ON:Dragonhold|ESO]]}} where ancient Khajiit looked to their various spirits as a source of guidance (or avoidance) to reach their destinations. There is many examples of how the spirits fulfil a role in the various Paths, whether by aiding or hindering Khajiit during their journey.{{ref|name=ESOSOA|{{Cite Book|Spirits of Amun-dro}}}} These Many Paths were created by Akha after he left behind trails as he explored the heavens, and were inherited by Alkosh, who is aided by Khenarthi, who helps him ensure the tapestry of time is mended.{{Ref|name=TWaS|{{Cite Book|The Wandering Spirits}}}} Some believe that when the Riddle'Thar replaced the Many Paths with his one true path of the moons, he hid Khajiit from the other viable Paths.{{ref|[[Online:Moongrave Fane|Moongrave Fane]] loading screen description in [[Online:Elsweyr|ESO: Elsweyr]]}}
