* GreaterScopeVillain: Arguably, in Morrowind. While Azura takes a highly on a highly benevolent image of attempting to help free the Dunmer from the threat of Dagoth Ur, the primary reason why the Nereveraine was actually sent to Vvardenfell was to undermine and destroy the Tribunal (who stole her worshippers from her and killed her previous champion, Nerevar) In addition, Azura herself played a highly active role in bringing about the destruction of Morrowind, and she only warned a handful of her followers to leave (allowing for the rest to die horribly as punishment from turning on her). [[TheBadGuyWins She is also the only party in all of Morrowind to end up with ''everything'' she wanted]] (Dead Tribunal, her former worshipers are firmly hers again, those who didn't worship her are enslaved and destroyed, amazing PR...)

Note; Elder Scrolls lore is really weird; in game text can't really be trusted, as most of it is written by characters with political view points (or just wrong information). Out of game text can be somewhat trusted, except that there is a tendency for it to be left unofficial and later contradicted. As such, it would be wise to avoid definitively saying something; chances are, someone else has an equally correct source saying the complete opposite. In addition, due to time alterations which aren't explained in detail by an objective source, its entirely possible that both are actually correct.

The Five Hundred who yet stood joined in the ovation for the victory and the lament for their fallen peers. It was said to be heard on the distant and chilling green shores of Atmora, and the ancestors knew their time had come to cross the seas."''

* BaseBreakingCharacter: InUniverse. Prior to the First Era, most races of Men followed the Nordic pantheon, which treated Lorkhan (under the name Shor) as their TopGod and most beloved benefactor. The Elves, on the other hand, ''hated'' Lorkhan to the point that worship of him was out of the question. Even after Alessia conquered the Ayleids, her empire was threatened to be torn apart due to religious in-fighting. Her solution was to group the most important Aedra into the Eight Divines, with Lorkhan only partially acknowledged as the "Missing Ninth God". This kept both the Nords and the Elves happy.



* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: The religion of the Eight (later Nine) Divines was specifically created so that the Eight most agreed-upon entities would be universally worshipped throughout Tamriel. The main point of contention was Lorkhan, aka Shor, who was beloved by the Nords (whose religion most Men followed) but ''despised'' by the Elves. For this reason, he was excluded from the Divines and referred to as the "Missing God".



The most powerful and important Aedra are the Eight Divines. Due to the ascension of Tiber Septim (described below) and his transformation into the god Talos, a new pantheon was created, the Nine Divines. The Divines are well recognized, respected, and worshipped throughout Tamriel.

The most powerful and important prominent Aedra are the Eight Divines. Divines, who are the primary pantheon worshipped throughout Tamriel. In truth, the "Eight Divines" were a political creation, formed after St. Alessia's First Empire rose to power. The Eight most popular and influential Aedra were chosen to avoid political discontent amongst the diverse races now under the Empire's banner. In particular, Lorkhan was only tangentially recognized by the pantheon due to being despised by the Elves yet beloved by the Nords. Due to the ascension of Tiber Septim (described below) and his transformation into the god Talos, a new pantheon was created, created: the Nine Divines. The Divines. All in all, the Divines are well recognized, respected, and worshipped throughout Tamriel.
