A Buoyant Armiger, as they appear in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

For other uses, see Buoyant Armigers.
"I am a Buoyant Armiger, a member of a small military order of the Tribunal Temple, exclusively dedicated to and answering to Lord Vivec. We pattern ourselves on Lord Vivec's heroic spirit of exploration and adventure, and emulate his mastery of the varied arts of personal combat, chivalric courtesy, and subtle verse. We serve the Temple as champions and knights-errant, and are friendly rivals of the more solemn Ordinators in our dedicated service to Lord Vivec and the Temple."
―Buoyant Armiger[1]

The Buoyant Armigers are a group of guards serving the god Vivec. Their base of operation is the Ghostgate and seem to, also, follow and serve Imperial Law in this setting. They protect the temple pilgrims as well as warriors that help keep the blighted creatures from invading Vvardenfell.[2] They commonly wear Chitin Armor, and higher-ranked members may wear Glass and Daedric Armor.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Buoyant Armigers reportedly came into being after Vivec heard of three lesser houses spreading "doubtful doctrine" from a place known as Horde Mountain, a mountain made of many warriors. In response, he cast the creatures that made up Horde Mountain's bones to the heavens so that they made Vivec City. The ones who cheered at Vivec's coming, the Velothi, became the Buoyant Armigers, and the three houses were married under Vivec's merriment to form one great one.[3]

The Buoyant Armigers Grand Marshall is Galdal Omayn, and all Armigers as well as most militaristic factions of the Tribunal Temple seem to at least respect, if not function, as members of House Redoran.
