Alkhan, also referred to as The Scaled Prince, and Firstborn of Akha,[1] is a Khajiiti god and one of the "Wandering Spirits" of the pantheon.[1]

Alkhan is the first entity to have originated from Akha, the source of all dragons and gods associated with the concept of time in the pantheon.[1] Alkhan possesses the ability to devour the souls of those he has killed, and by doing so he can grow to an immense size. Alkhan is the enemy of Alkosh, Khenarthi, and Lorkhaj, with the latter and his companions being the ones who slew Alkhan. However, as an immortal son of Akha, Alkhan can not be killed permanently, and he will always return from the "Many Paths" in time.[1]

Nature and identity[]

Alkhan is the Khajiiti equivalent of Alduin; the Nordic god of time,[2] who is also referred to as "First Dragon".[3] Like Alkhan, Alduin possesses the ability to increase his power by devouring the souls of mortals.[4]
