Masser, as seen in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Masser, also known as Jode[1] or Mara's Tear,[2] is the larger of the two moons of Nirn, and is red in color.


The phases of Masser

Among the Khajiit, Masser, as well as Secunda, are revered because their lunar phase helps determine the forms Khajiit take at birth.

Lorkhan, "The Missing God", was sundered into two halves during his destruction, becoming both Masser and Secunda.[3] The two moons symbolize his duality, reminding his man-creations of his struggle, which is most likely another reason for the Khajiit's worship. The Khajiit also refer to Masser as Jode.[1]


A passage from Lymdrenn Tenvanni's Journal suggests that Masser reaches its fullest state on the summer solstice.


  • Masser is similar to the planet Mars, in both color and name. It was shown as a recolored picture of Mars in the skybox.[source?]
  • Massar (مسار) is the Arabic word for "path" or "path follower."
