"The cultural narratives of Daenia are filled with tales of the lowly taking on a great quest to win the respect and accolades of those above them. It is my suspicion that the famed independent spirit of the Daenian people is an extension of this narrative of upward mobility."
Aldous Brousseau[src]

Daenia is a land-locked duchy situated within the Iliac Bay and the region of Glenumbra, ultimately being in the province of High Rock. Daenia contains both the cities of Daggerfall and Daenia City. Daenia is known as the home of the Beldama Wyrd, a group of Breton-witches that safeguard the forest, all the while worshipping the Ehlnofey known as the Elemental Guardians.

The assassin, Verrik was a proven member of the Bloodthorn Cult, his death started a small war between the Daggerfall Covenant and the Bloodthorn Cult in the region of Glenumbra.[1][2]

Bloodthorns Poison the Wyrd Tree

The Bloodthorn Cult planned to manipulate the Guardians of the Wyrd Tree, a group of Elemental Ehlnofey that are worshiped by the Beldama Wyrd. Through their influence, the denizens of the Daenia Forest attacked several settlements across the Kingdom of Daggerfall, one of the notable attacks was in the town of Deleyn's Mill. The Vestige traveled to the settlement and dealt with the group of Spriggans and Imps that terrorized the people. The Vestige traveled to the heart of the forest, the Beldama Wyrd Tree to deal with the Bloodthorn Cult from the tree. By defeating the Corruption of the Tree, the Elemental Guardians were restored, and the forest was saved. The conflict with the Bloodthorn Cult continued in the north in the Cambray Hills where Faolchu the Changeling was revived to besiege the city of Camlorn.[3][4][5][6][7]
