The Cuirass of the Savior's Hide is a piece of armor created by the Daedric Prince Hircine. Appearing in various other The Elder Scrolls titles, it returns to The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, where it gives a significant resistance to magic. Wearing it bolsters the light armor skill when struck.
It resides in a high level locked cupboard in the Hall of Fyr in Tel Fyr, and the key sits at the end of an undocumented quest, a long string of keys and locked cupboards which also lead to a Daedric Crescent, a plethora of Dwemer artifacts, and another Daedric Artifact.
The Cuirass of the Savior's Hide is one of the artifacts the Nerevarine may sell to Torasa Aram at the Museum of Artifacts in Mournhold. She offers 30'000 for it, which is the maximum amount of gold she spends for one item.
