The gods of Tamriel are as varied as the many cultures' traditions of worship. Individual gods (used as a general term to indicate any entity worshipped by one of Tamriel's cultures) are listed alphabetically on each of the sub-articles listed above. This article provides some general information about relationships between the different gods.

Types of Gods

Generally, there are several distinct groups into which the various gods fall:

  • Many versions of Anu and Padomay, the two primal forces. These two entities are recognized under various names in most faiths.
  • The et'Ada are the "original spirits",[1] a race of divine beings resulting from the interplay of Anu and Padomay, including:
    • The Aedra combine both Anuic and Padomaic basis;[2] these are the gods who helped to create Mundus.[1]
    • The Daedric Princes have a Padomaic basis;[2] these are the gods who refused to help create Mundus and created their own Planes in Oblivion filled with lesser Daedra.
    • Magna Ge have an Anuic basis;[2] these are the gods who refused to help create Mundus and fled into Aetherius after Magnus, creating the stars while Magnus created the sun.
    • The Ehlnofey; these are a group of et'Ada who decided not to abandon Mundus, and instead sacrificed themselves to become the Earthbones that would keep it viable.[1][3] They remained in the mortal realm and populated it, becoming the progenitors of the modern races.[1][3]

Cultural Worship

In Tamriel, cultural pantheons of certain provinces have different gods that they worship, though some gods are worshipped in several areas.

  • In Cyrodiil, worship of either the Divines or the Daedric Princes is common, especially among the native Imperials.
  • In Morrowind, the Daedric Princes and the Tribunal are commonly worshipped, specifically among the native Dunmer.
  • In Skyrim, worship of the old Nordic pantheon still persists in some Holds, while others have adopted the modern Imperial pantheon.
