* OnlyTheChosenMayWield: Only those of great power or the right bloodline may wield the Mantella. Notably, your character is ''not'' among them; this is the only Elder Scrolls game to date to avert you being TheChosenOne, so if try to use the Mantella yourself, you will die.

* InadequateInheritor: The weakness of the more recent Emperors has allowed the Empire's hold on the region to falter, leading to the competing factions that make up the main plot.

As it says in the intro narration, "The unworthy heirs of the Septim Dynasty have allowed the bonds of the Empire to weaken and crack..." Part of it, as well, is the ten years that the usurper Jagar Tharn spent on the throne leading up to the events of ''Arena''. Uriel VII is generally considered a very good emperor, but it's hard to keep your empire together when you've been imprisoned and replaced by an imposter.

** BigBadWannabe: The Battlemage's parents were aware that Tharn had usurped the throne during the previous game. They envied him for being so successful.
