The Morag Tong is quite unique in Tamriel, as it is the only legally sanctioned organization for assassins. It was said to have been founded by the Daedric Prince Mephala.<ref name="TA"/> In Dunmeri legends, she teaches the early [[Chimer]] nomads, who were emigrating from [[Summerset Isles]], how to evade their adversaries and destroy them with conspiracy and secret plots of murder, his/her "sphere of influence" upon Morrowind being conspiracies and secrets.<ref name="Varieties" /> A small faction of Chimer continued to adhere to these principles, and, thus the Morag Tong was born.

As a means of resolving conflicts of such a grievous nature between Chimer groups that no other course of action was appropriate, the Chimer were to approach the Morag Tong and offer money for an "honorable execution."<ref name="HonorableWrits">''[[Honorable Writs of Execution]]''</ref> Because of its official sanction, the Morag Tong has the authority to print legal bills known as "Writs of Execution," which excuse a guild agent of all legal misgiving associated with any Morag Tong related business.<ref name="HonorableWrits" /> These writs are to be presented to any arresting guard or soldier, and immediately and completely absolve the assassin for the murder. As such, Morag Tong executioners are expected to give themselves up immediately following an execution even if the death itself would have remained a mystery, in order to legally absolve themselves and avert any possible long-term ramifications. Executioners who fail to do so are considered suspect by their order and may be subject to major internal investigations, as the Morag Tong does not harbor criminals.<ref name="HonorableWrits" /> Note also that other crimes committed in the completion of an assignment are not excused by a writ — for example, theft or secondary killings.{{Source}}
