*From his own Commentaries on the Mysterium Xarxes: "Offering myself to that daybreak allowed the girdle of grace to contain me. When my voice returned, it spoke with another tongue. After three nights I could speak fire." Three days is far too short for a non-Dragonborn to learn the Thu'um. The Greybeards spend years training to understand enough to use the Thu'um. But unless "speak fire" is metaphorical, and given how the rest of the Commentaries are written that's a definite possibility, all it would have taken is for the Mysterium Xarxes to have the construction of a Word Wall on the pages we didn't see, but that only works if Camoran was Dragonborn.

* Keep in mind that it was his idea to [[spoiler: let you soul trap him into the Colossal Black Soul Gem. If he [[LikeABadassOutOfHell worked his way out of the Soul Cairn before]], [[BackFromTheDead he might be able to do it again]].]]

* Technically the history of the Empire implies that there was a Dunmer wearer, in that the Amulet of Kings is part of the Imperial regalia, and Katariah ''did'' reign in her own right for forty-seven (or forty-six, depending on the source) years. It is possible she just never wore it (the whole 'already having been Regent for a while' thing smoothing over the transition with the Elder Council) or used it to light the Dragonfires (that being less pressing at the time with two more Towers up and active), of course.

[[WMG: Mogens Wind-Shifter could have been innocent.]]
Despite the strong hint of ButForMeItWasTuesday with this quest, we are only shown Mazoga's introduction to the player and her encounter with the bandits. It's quite possible she had targeted the wrong man, by mistaken identity or some other reason.

[[WMG: Hannibal Traven has been to the Soul Cairn]]
Which is why he has such a hatred for necromancy because he knows first hand what happens to people who are soul trapped into Black Soul Gems. Also, of course how he escaped could possibly be Authority Equals Asskicking. And how he got there in the first place may be that he was once a Necromancer himself and is trying to atone.

::Skyrim gives another possible explanation. All previous wearers of the Amulet of Kings were Dragonborn (Alessia, the Remans, Tiber Septim and his line). Before Skyrim, these folks had all been humans, either Nords or Imperials, and thus possibly related. As of Skyrim, a Dragonborn can be a member of any sentient race, so there's nothing stopping Mankar Camoran as an Altmer from being Dragonborn. Ironically, even though the creators weren't thinking of it, I think it actually explains Camoran better than anything that was present at the time of Oblivion.

[[WMG: Mankar Camoran is somewhere or other in his ancestry an illegitimate child of a Septim or something]]
It explains how the hell he can wear the Amulet of Kings without issue.

[[WMG: The Hero is into necrophilia.]]
He or she knows the penalty for grave-robbing is death without being told beforehand and is able to rattle off the fine for necrophilia. Sounds like things someone would want to know if they were into dead bodies.

[[WMG: The Dark Brotherhood killed Count Indarys' wife.]]
People in-universe and out always seem to blame the Count for his wife's mysterious death because he's apparently a scumbag. However, when you take into account the rumor that the Dark Brotherhood bribes said Count to keep his mouth shut about the existence of the Cheydenhal sanctuary (the exact words used are "bribes and other... incentives"), it could be possible that at one point he tried to do something about them, and they killed his wife to teach him a lesson. Because of his reputation, or maybe just because people are prejudiced against a dunmer Count, or even because of the Brotherhood themselves spreading rumors, everyone just blamed Indarys for his wife's death and decided not to look any further into it.
