The Sun Birds of Alinor were large birds made out of the Sun.[UL 1] Alongside the Reman Dynasty, their expeditions to Aetherius during the Merethic Era are the most famous attempts in history. They were eventually dissolved, due to the untenable expenditures required to reach magic by magicka. The Great Orrery at Firsthold is their only legacy. Altmer ships have been described as having "prows that elongate into swirling Sun-Birds,"[UL 2] and the term is seemingly also used to refer to the ships as a whole.[UL 3][UL 4]
