"As you know, he's probably the oldest and most powerful wizard alive. Not counting liches, or divine sorcerers like Vivec, of course."
Uupse Fyr[src]

Divayth Fyr is a powerful 4000-year-old Dunmer Sorcerer and member of House Telvanni who resided in Tel Fyr in Zafirbel Bay. He served as the caretaker of Corprusarium, a quarantine area which treats those infected with Corprus.

Though a member of House Telvanni, he generally stays out of House politics and has no intention of joining the Council. He lives with his four women with the surname Fyr; Alfe, Beyte, Delte, and Uupse. He refers to them as his "daughters" while they call themselves his "wives," but they are in fact his clones.

By game


First Era

Divayth Fyr was born in the early First Era in Tel Aruhn as a Chimer.[1] In his youth as an apprentice, Fyr experimented with necromancy on a few corpses, though had a distaste for the art as he grew older. He studied with Sotha Sil prior to his apotheosis,[2] though insisted on not calling him by any of his new titles after his ascent to godhood.[3] Following the War of the First Council and Disappearance of the Dwarves, Divayth along with the rest of the Chimer became Dunmer.[1][4] He later studied with the Psijic Order on Artaeum, leaving the isle as a "sharp-elbowed upstart."[5]

Second Era

In the later years of the Reman Empire during Savirien Chorak's reign, Fyr assisted his good friend Morian Zenas with the transliminal sojourn project, the final goal being a trip into the realm of Oblivion.[6] During a visit to the Imperial City, Fyr attempted to become romantically involved with Zenas' associate, Doctor Alfidia Lupus,[7] and Lupus later told Fyr that she and Zenas had already eloped.[8] Fyr and Zenas later succeeded in travelling to Oblivion, though only Fyr returned to Tamriel, with Zenas remaining in Apocrypha.[9]

Sometime around the Planemeld and crisis on Vvardenfell, House Telvanni granted Fyr membership into their house and gave him the tower of Tel Fyr as a gift.[2] In one of his expeditions to the caverns below, a rift leading out from the Clockwork City opened into the caves and began to pour out fabricants and other creatures from the city, injuring and killing many who accompanied him. With the help of the Vestige, the rift was later closed.[10] Fyr also assisted in saving the Clockwork City and thwarting Nocturnal's capture of Sotha Sil, again with the Vestige. Sil later gave Fyr the Skeleton Key for safekeeping, and Fyr departed, marking the last time he and Sil directly met.[11]

Third Era

Though being one of the oldest and most powerful members of House Telvanni, Divayth often preferred to stay out of house politics. He showed no interest in joining the Council,[12] but Master Aryon remarked that Fyr was so well respected by the House he could have gotten a seat on the Council by merely asking, and was more powerful than Neloth or Gothren.[13] Fyr trained Aryon as his student before Aryon became the owner of Tel Vos and elevated to the rank of magister.[14]

He cloned himself and created female versions of him, Alfe FyrBeyte FyrDelte Fyr, and Uupse Fyr, apparently using jars and his own flesh. While he calls them his daughters, they call themselves his wives. Divayth Fyr kept an extensive collection of rare items in Corprusarium, claiming that when one gets old, one must have a "hobby."[12] These items included things Daedric artifacts such as the legendary Volendrung, Scourge, and Savior's Hide.[4]

When Dagoth Ur disseminated the Corprus Disease in Vvardenfell, Divayth Fyr created the Corprusarium within the caverns beneath his home to house victims of Corprus while he worked on finding a cure.[12] The last known living Dwemer, Yagrum Bagarn, was a close friend of Fyr's and resided in the Corprusarium after contracting the Blight. When the Nerevarine contracted the Corprus disease, Fyr gave them an experimental cure after retrieving a Dwemer Coherer and the Dwemer Boots of Flying for him. The potion was successful, and while not curing Corprus completely, it did remove the adverse effects of the disease.[4]

When Baar Dau fell and Red Mountain erupted, causing the Red Year and subsequent Argonian Invasion, it is unknown what happened to Divayth Fyr.
