Pitch’s eyes are really important
Peryite, the Taskmaster, is the Daedric Prince of pestilence and order. Although typically depicted as a four-legged dragon, he is considered one of the weakest Daedric Princes, responsible for the lowest orders of Oblivion. Though it should be noted that calling any Daedric Prince ‘weak’ is a bit like saying the ocean could be wetter.
The aforementioned ‘lowest orders of Oblivion’ are known as The Pits, they resemble the Deadlands, in that they are covered in lava seas, volcanic islands and ruined structures. The realm is usually completely inaccessible to mortals, but there have been several exceptions.
Even among those mages with the skill and knowledge to travel to the planes of Oblivion, Peryite’s Pits are impossible to enter. This may explain why, when his followers in Cyrodiil attempted to contact him, their souls appeared to be stuck on Dagon’s Oblivion plane, the Deadlands. Not knowing what the Pits look like, it is impossible to tell where the souls were actually trapped.
Indirectly, Peryite has influenced the lives of nearly every mortal inhabitant of Nirn throughout history. He is the Lord of Pestilence, and the cause of many plagues and pandemic diseases, and low order; though few mortals are aware of this. He is typically listed along with Princes such as Mehrunes Dagon and Vaermina as one of the few truly evil Daedric Lords, in the mortal man and mer sense of the word. Though some of his worshipers will tell you the following:
“He is the pus in the wound. Oh, proper ones curl their noses, but it’s pus that drinks foul humors and restores the blood. I worship Peryite, yes, because sometimes the world can only be cleansed by disease."
Peryite’s enemies are Ebonarm, Vaermina, and Mephala. His summoning day is the Ninth of Rain’s Hand.
The Artifact associated with this Daedric Prince is Spellbreaker, a Dwemer Tower Shield that not only guards the user from physical damage, but also deflects magic, much like a ward would. It is said that the shield still searches for it’s owner and will not remain in the possession of any mortal for very long, often leading them to a filthy and slow death.
(Leave me an ask if there are any other Daedric Princes you would like me to write about. I love writing about them but I have no idea which one to do next!)
this pup never learns

Mannimarco, The King of Worms, an Altmer lich, is the leader of the Order of the Black Worm and an enemy of the Mages Guild. His title, The King of Worms may specific to him or it may simply be the title bestowed upon the leader of his cult of necromancers.
He was originally an Altmer and member of the Psijic Order, a fellow student of Vanus Galerion. At some point Mannimarco abandoned the Psijic Order to further practice the dark arts of necromancy. Between this point in time and Mannimarco’s last battle with Galerion, he transformed himself into the first Lich ever, gaining immortality. After this battle, he went into hiding, most likely staying at Scourg Barrow, a large, well-fortified center of operations in the Dragontail Mountains. Since then, he has cleverly played all the political games and powers for millennia. His influences have even reached back to the Summerset Isles, the homeland of the Altmer. The Sload, whose domain is the Thrassian Coral Kingdom, worship him, and it is possible they were the ones to bestow his title upon him.
Mages who joined him brought him tomes, enchanted weapons and armor, blood-tainted herbs and oils, Akaviri poison, bonemeal of dead saints, and human skin, toadstools, roots and other alchemical ingredients. Mannimarco absorbed the dark energy out of these objects, and as a result, life-energy was sucked out of him. His body became that of a corpse with blood poison and acid. His power and the duration of his life grew along with his arsenal.
The Imperial City, in the heartland of Tamriel, is the ancient seat of power in Tamriel, it is the capital of Cyrodiil and the whole of the Empire. The circular city is located on City Isle, an island in Lake Rumare in the Nibenay Valley at the center of the Imperial province. At the middle is the Green Emperor Way district, containing the Imperial Palace and its White-Gold Tower. Surrounding it are six districts, the Market, Arena, Arboretum, Temple, Talos Plaza, and Elven Gardens.
It was once the center of an Ayleid city, noticeable in the gleaming white architecture and magnificent statues which are still a noticeable part of the city even in the Fourth Era.
Below the city, there is a complex sewer system, as well as various ruined Ayleid structures and labyrinths. Only a small number of those labyrinths and sewers have been mapped, maintained, and controlled by the Imperial Legion. Large portions of these ruins and sewers, however, are not, and the Imperial Legion advises all adventurers entering the sewers to bring extra hands and securities.
Also on the island is the Arcane University, the Imperial Prison and the Waterfront, which is the harbor of the Imperial City. A single bridge connects the island to the mainland near Weye. Roads lead from the capital in all directions.
*casually puts this here*
Mostly because I was rereading FDWR and realizing how often Jack gets in the way of Pitch’s reading/studying/training/meditating …. Silly complicated cuties …
He really did interrupt Pitch all the time. Heh. Just another of Jack’s mischievous ways coming through even when he didn’t realise - Jack’s such a ‘kid’ in that respect. Like, how children often don’t realise they’re interrupting their parents, because they’re not quite capable of awarding parents with that much autonomy. (Don’t worry, Jack gets better at it over time!)
This is adorable. I love the look on Pitch’s face, and how happy Jack is to be snuggling. Omg these cute boys, they’re adorable!!
