List of revered and worshipped gods[edit | edit source]
Akha[edit | edit source]
Akha is the Khajiiti entity from which all dragons and gods associated with the concept of time originated. Akha was told by Ahnurr to mate, and find love. Doing so resulted in the creation of dragons and the disappearance of Akha, with Alkosh appearing in his stead.
Alkhan is the Khajiiti equivalent of the Nordic god Alduin. Alkhan is the firstborn of Akha, and he possesses the ability to devour the souls of those he kills, in order to grow to an immense size. It is implied that as an immortal son of Akha, Alkhan can not be killed, and that he will always return if he is to be defeated.
The Khajiiti variation of Akatosh, Alkosh is the principal deity in the Anaquinine religion, one of two distinct Khajiiti kingdoms. Alkosh is credited with defeating and repelling Pelinal Whitestrake from Elsweyr during a massive attack on the Khajiit. Alkosh has lost many of his mainstream worshippers to the god Riddle'Thar, but is still worshipped in several of Elsweyr's "wasteland regions."
Azurah is the name given to Azura, Daedric Prince of Dusk and Dawn. Azurah is a central figure in Khajiiti mythology, as she is credited with the creation of the Khajiit themselves. In some stories, Azurah was the favored daughter of Fadomai and was gifted her greatest secrets before her mother's death.
Baan Dar is the "Bandit God" of the Khajiit, and is the representation of the cleverness of the people. He is commonly associated with the machinations of the Khajiit against their elven and human enemies.
Hermorah is the name given by the Khajiit to the Daedric Prince of Knowledge and Fate, Hermaeus Mora.
Hircine is the Daedric Prince of the Hunt, and the Father of Manbeasts. He is described as being constantly hungry in Khajiiti myth.
Ius[edit | edit source]
Jode[edit | edit source]
Jone[edit | edit source]
Lorkhaj is the Khajiiti variant of Lorkhan, the Missing God. According to myth, Lorkhaj was Fadomai's final child to be born before her death, alongside the "Great Darkness," Namiira. In some stories, Nirni asked Lorkhaj to create a home for Nirni to give birth. Lorkhaj obliged and tricked the other spirits into helping him, causing many of them to die. The remaining spirits cursed him to "walk Nirni for many phases."
Mara[edit | edit source]
Masser and Secunda[edit | edit source]
Masser and Secunda are the Moons and their Motions.
Merrunz is the Khajiiti variant of Mehrunes Dagon, Daedric Prince of Destruction, and is commonly associated with natural disasters.
Mafala is the Khajiiti equivalent to Mephala, Daedric Prince of Sex, Lies, and Secrets.
Namiira is the Khajiiti variation of the Daedric Prince Namira, she is referred to as "The Eldest Spirit" and "The Great Darkness". She is associated with the Void and the consumption of rotten flesh.
Nirni[edit | edit source]
Noctra is the Khajiiti equivalent to the Daedric Prince Nocturnal, she was born from the black blood of Lorkhaj. Azurah spared Noctra and allowed her to live so long as she served Azurah and the ja-Kha'jay, but due to her being rebellious by nature, she stole one of Azurah's keys and fled to the Void.
Rajhin is the thief god of the Khajiit, who is said to have grown up in the Black Kiergo section of Senchal. The most famous burglar in Elsweyr's history, Rajhin is said to have stolen a tattoo from the neck of Empress Kintyra as she slept.
Riddle'Thar was introduced into the Khajiiti pantheon by the Mane Rid-Thar-ri'Datta. The Riddle'Thar is called the "Cosmic Order deity," and is akin to a set of guidelines by which to live instead of an actual god. The creation of Riddle'Thar greatly diminished the worship of Alkosh in Elsweyr.
Sangiin, otherwise known as "The Blood Cat," is the equivalent to Sanguine, Daedric Prince of Revelry and Hedonism.
S'rendarr is the Khajiiti variant of Stendarr, the God of Mercy.
Y'ffer is the brother of Nirni, who was asked to punish the Khajiit. He did this by turning the forests of Elsweyr into deserts and jungles, but the Khajiit were protected by Azurah who taught them to adapt.
