Vaermina, Weaver of the PanoplyEdit

Vaermina (also spelled Vaernima), called the Prince of Dreams and Nightmares, the Gifter, the Mistress of Nightmares and Dark Portents, the Lady of Nightmares, the Weaver of Dreams, the Queen of Nightmares, Weaver of the Panoply, Daedra Lady of Corruption and Decay, the Dreamweaver and the Dark Lady is a Daedric Prince whose sphere is the realm of dreams and nightmares, and from whose realm evil omens issue forth, as well as corruption and decay. All mortals come under her sway as they sleep. She is considered one of the more "demonic" Daedra in that she is destructive for the sake of causing destruction, her method being torture. She is disgusted by mortals who maintain a moral compass, instead taking delight in those who commit outrageous sins or are unafraid to kill in pursuit of power. Laymen know her for her reputation as the Daedric Prince of nightmares and evil dreams.

Vaermina's plane of Oblivion is Quagmire, described by observers as a nightmarish land. It is said Vaermina hungers for the memories of mortals, collecting them from her citadel at the center of the realm, and leaving them with visions of horror and despair. Every few minutes, reality shifts and becomes ever more horrifying. It is not known what Vaermina does with these memories, but it is assumed to be malevolent.

Vaermina is said to be an enemy of Ebonarm, Boethiah, Peryite, and Hermaeus Mora, but an ally of Sanguine. She is also at odds with Azura. Her summoning day coincides with the Merchants' Festival, the 10th of Sun's Height.

Varmiina, Queen of NightmaresEdit

Varmiina, also titled the Queen of Nightmares and the Lost Daughter appears in some Khajiiti traditions as a dark spirit who tests Khajiit during their life. She was said to have been born from Fadomai's fears of losing her children, rather than from one of her litters. Varmiina was eventually killed by Azurah which lead to her only be able to haunt Khajiit during their dreams.[1]


Vigryl (also called Vir Gil)[2] is known as the God of the Sea and is worshiped in the Iliac Bay area.[3] His temple is known as the Communion of Vir and its knightly order is known as The Tide, praying to Vigryl can bless an area with better weather.[4]

Vivec, Master of MorrowindEdit

Vivec (also spelled Vivek), or Vehk, Warrior-Poet deity of the Dunmer and Vi in the AlmSiVi, was the Guardian God-King of the holy land of Vvardenfell, and ever-vigilant protector from the dark gods of the Red Mountain, the gate to hell. He is also called the Master of Morrowind. Though some aspects of his past are blurred by time and questions surround some of his more controversial choices, Vivec has always represented the spirit and duality of the Dunmer people, which is reflected in his half-Dunmer, half-Chimer appearance.

The Warrior-Poet spent his long life creating numerous works and wonders. He was a prolific writer, perhaps most notably with the 36 Lessons, a series of cryptic texts widely open to an incredible amount of speculation and conjecture, primarily to act as a guide for the prophesized Nerevarine. Numerous artifacts were associated with the God-King, including his legendary spear Muatra. For hundreds if not thousands of years, he mostly resided at the pinnacle of his Palace in city to which he lent his own name, Vivec. Hundreds of pilgrims and tourists visited his holy city daily.

He guided and protected the Dunmer until his loss of divinity and subsequent disappearance near the end of the Third Era, a sacrifice he not only accepted, but helped to bring about. The Tribunal Temple would collapse in his absence. The New Temple refers to him as Saint Vivec and declared him a member of the False Tribunal.
