* What was the original schtick of House Dagoth, you know, before it became "crazy Cthulhu cultists"? House Dagoth was once a normal Dunmer house. Every house has a schtick: for Redoran it's ProudWarriorRaceGuy, for Telvanni it's eccentric wizards, for Hlaalu it is IOwnThisTown, for Indoril it's religious fanatics, for Dres it's slaver plantation owners. House Dagoth's became "Cthulhu Fhtagn" in its modern incarnation. What was the original one? What was House Dagoth known for when they were just Chimer?

** According to Skyrim (''The Biography of Barenziah'' if you're interested) her husband was killed right before ''Arena'' when the Morrowind citizens revolted over the Empire's ridiculous new taxes. Afterwards she married King Eadwyre of Wayrest, becoming queen of Wayrest and abdicating the throne of Morrowind.

** Remember that the idea that the Nerevarine was to be an Outlander only becomes well known and popularized during the game. Before that, most (if not all) Incarnates were indeed Ashlanders, as is noted quite a few times.

** I can think of two possibilities. The first is that Morrowind's monarchy operates under election or appointment rather than family succession, and Helseth used his political connections to obtain the throne. The second is that Barenziah simply abdicated.

** Even so, Peakstar, Conoon Chodala, and Erur-Dan all seem to be Ashlanders (Conoon Chodala even says he was an ashkhan), making them not outlanders. The other Incarnates could easily be outlander Dunmer, but some of them ''can't'' be.
