|“||When I will walk the earth again, the Faithful amongst thee shalt receive thy reward: to be set above all other mortals forever. As for the rest: the weak shall be winnowed; the timid shall be cast down; the mighty shall tremble at my feet and pray for pardon.||”|
— Mehrunes Dagon, unknown
Mehrunes Dagon (Eurasian: Maerator; Dovazhul: Dey Gohn) is a Daedric Prince. His spheres are destruction, change, revolution, energy, and ambition. Mehrunes Dagon is the foe of all mortal races, and has attempted to conquer the physical world Nirn many times. The common reasoning behind his many plots is his belief that Mundus is in fact a plane of Oblivion which is rightly his. His realm is the Deadlands.
Dagon is rumored to have written the Mysterium Xarxes, a book which is said to contain the rituals necessary to summon Dagon himself. The existence of this book has been denied continuously by both the Temple of the One and the College of Pontiffs of Mos Maiorum, the latter of whom considers Dagon to be equivalent to Pluto. He is the most reviled prince in all of Novem Deos.
