"Only crowned heads will hold the Totem true. First is one who killed, but did not kill another. Second is one who is two devoured by its young. Third is one who made one slave and many free. Fourth and Fifth are two who compete for mud. Sixth is one who brings a home to the homeless. Seventh is one who lords all, but does not lord at all."

History[edit | edit source]

When Sentinel declared war on Daggerfall, due to the submission of the Isle of Betony to Daggerfall, Nulfaga and Medora Direnni urged King Lysandus not to enter the war. Both sorceresses foretold doom to King Lysandus, but Lysandus insisted on his decision to fight against Sentinel. Nulfaga retired to Shedungent in the Wrothgarian Mountains and left Skakmat behind to report to her.[source?]

Although Skakmat, with his unnatural fog, tried to avoid the Battle of Cryngaine Field, eventually as foretold, Lysandus was killed by a Sentinel arrow. Upon learning of this, Nulfaga descended into madness and remained within Shedungent, spending the entirety of her time in magical studies.[source?]

Nulfaga was misled into believing that the murderer of her son, Lysandus, was in an unmarked ship travelling from the Imperial City to Daggerfall. The ship was, in fact, the ship of the mysterious agent sent by Uriel Septim VII. She summoned a storm to swallow and destroy the ship and its passengers, though the agent survived.[source?]

The agent later visited Nulfaga in Shedungent on behalf of Medora for magical assistance in lifting the curse placed on Direnni Tower. Still in madness however, Nulfaga was unable to help, leaving the agent to search Shedungent alone for the magical ingredient Medora would need to lift the curse herself.[source?]

After the agent avenged King Lysandus, her memory was somewhat restored. She helped the agent in the final quest concerning the Numidium. She prophesied the wielders of the Numidium.[source?]
