* As the sun emerged from the horizon on a chilly morning, a god's murder was discovered. In their temple the victim's was throat slit and agape not unlike a second mouth. In that very same House an hour later a woman's body was found floating in shallow waters, bound and tied in a sack riddled with knife wounds. Another, a man in a hurry, riddled in arrows on a door. As the series of murders continued they were soon traced to an abandoned storehouse far off the House over and when the authorities arrived they found nothing... save for the bizarre sight of a effigy resembling a human body surrounded by a circle of candles. Also in the circle were nightshade, human flesh, and a knife leading to the assumption that it was a ritual for some unholy monster or some hellish vengeful spirit. When word soon broke of their findings it eventually reached the ears of the Dragonborn who out of curiosity requested the records for taken tropes and after some pulled strings they found confirmation: Taking the trope of {{Candlelit Ritual}}s is the Dark Brotherhood.
* The Dark Brotherhood are a shadowy order of assassins dating back as far as the Second Era and are a supposed splinter group of the honorable and legal Morag Tong concentrated in Morrowind. Though acting like a cult similar to their bitter rival faction, the Dark Brotherhood [[MurderInc operate under a more business-like and pragmatic approach]] perhaps owed to their activity in multiple regions across Tamriel. The Dark Brotherhood persists because people want other people dead for reason or another and are willing to perform the Black Sacrament where it's their job to send souls to [[TheAntiGod the Dread Father, Sithis]]. So long as someone of potential is willing to commit murder the Brotherhood will welcome anyone into their fold ill regards to race or gender. Even werewolves and vampires are accepted members. And to that extent they are also willing to take on hits done on anyone through all walks of life. [[TheUnfettered They could be women, they could be children, they could be impoverished Skooma junkies, or they could be of nobility]]. Little is beyond their reach, and they'll see their contracts to the end.
* [[ReligionOfEvil It is no secret that the Dark Brotherhood reverse Sithis]], but the official head of the group is the Night Mother, the recipient of all contracts from the Black Sacrament. Her origins are, much like the Dark Brotherhood themselves, shrouded. To give an example there are even claims that she is just an aspect of the [[GodWasMyCopilot Daedric Prince Mephala]]. Whatever the case, bellow her is the Listener [[ExactlywhatItSaysOnTheTin who is the only person the Night Mother speaks to]]. The Listener is a member of the Black Hand with the four other members being the Speakers and their mistress' orders are relayed to them where they select Dark Brother or Sister down the rank best suited for the task. They could be your run of the mill cloak and dagger, they could be a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent lycanthrope]], or perhaps they could even be a hulking brute with a warhammer.
* A {{Professional|Killer}} if [[LaughablyEvil quirky group of homicidal cutthroats]] they may be, vilified by just about everyone across the continent of Tamriel, even they have their rules set in place. [[ApeShallNeverKillApe Keeping their family together]] are [[TheCommandments the Five Tenets]] and they are as follows:
--> Tenet 1: Never dishonor the Night Mother. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
--> Tenet 2: Never betray the Dark Brotherhood or its secrets. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
--> Tenet 3: Never disobey or refuse to carry out an order from a Dark Brotherhood superior. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
--> Tenet 4: Never steal the possessions of a Dark Brother or Dark Sister. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
--> Tenet 5: Never kill a Dark Brother or Dark Sister. To do so is to invoke the Wrath of Sithis.
** Exceptions are made to the Tenets when [[ThePurge Purifications]] are put in place in very dire circumstances, such as rooting out traitors and other dissidents in a Sanctuary offering every soul as appeasement to Sithis. The Dark Brotherhood has been around for centuries, and to say that they've always been a tight knit group no matter what would be spitting in the face of historical fact. Be it a splinter group led by a vampire supremacist, or a man hellbent on exacting his long overdue vengeance on the brotherhood, the group has known strife. Indeed, the latter crippled much of the Brotherhood's presence in Cyrodiil thanks to the Night Mother's decision to ''not'' tell anyone of their identity. Some say the Brotherhood finally perished during Alduin's return, but others say they continued to operate and persist in the years to come.
** If you're wondering why the capitalization, the Wrath of Sithis is an actual entity: [[https://images.uesp.net/4/42/LG-cardart-Wrath_of_Sithis.png A wraith taking the form of an old man]] with a blade sent by the entity itself to hunt down its dissidents the next time they sleep or when they pass away. As [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline the Black Dragon found out herself]] you ''do not'' want to have this thing come after you [[DraggedOffToHell lest you be dragged off to the abyss from whence it came]]. Under normal conditions they shouldn't have to fear the Wrath of Sithis, but the House of Pantheon/{{Ghosts}} remain weary all the same.
*** Others say the Wrath of Sithis is something along the lines of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcnCpDqFUX4 this]].
--> "4 the glory......... AHV SITHISSSSSSSSS"
* The reveal of their existence has troubled the Houses of Pantheon/{{Royalty}}, Pantheon/{{Leadership}}, and Pantheon/{{Justice}} out of everyone, save for the more underhanded and pragmatic individuals, but even then they watch their backs. There is no telling who put a contract on them until it's too late. Their House-mates don't like the idea of sharing a metaphorical roof with the "unique" family either, though the supposed placement and temple may just be a front to mask the actual locations of their Sanctuaries. On the flip side of the coin the Brotherhood sees a lot of their use in the House of Pantheon/{{Crime}}.
** One of, if not the first contracts the Dark Brotherhood took in the Pantheon was in the service of Polpo and by proxy his superior Diavolo. The apparent purpose behind the contracts was that there were a group of gods and goddesses that were getting too close to uncovering the Boss of Passione's whereabouts leading his wish to silence them before they got any closer. This probably lead to the above mentioned "introduction" to the Pantheon. The assassins' services under Passione continue, though their mortal enemies were quick to catch on the transgressions.
** Having heard of their ability to go after Emperors, Brutus contacted them to help deal with an old friend. That friend of course being Julius Caesar, of whom he dealt the fatal blow alongside other conspirators all those years ago. Relishing the opportunity of another notorious hit they accepted and are planning out his demise. Caesar, meanwhile, has upped his security when rumors reached his ears.
** To ensure that their profits are undisturbed, members of the Corpus' echelons have payed top Credit for the Dark Brotherhood to go after some troublesome opponents. Smaller and/or rival businesses, people spying on their facilities, dogged militants and madmen, and the like. While they're fine with filling their coffers, they do find Nef Anyo's preachings of the void quite annoying and the only reason they haven't turned on him in particular is because they aren't direct insults to Sithis, just mere ramblings.
** Various members across the House of Pantheon/{{Beast}} have prayed to the Night Mother to see through Pokemon Hunter J's death for wrecking havoc on them for so long. Certainly an extreme solution, one that many people point out as such, but the Night Mother wishes to see their pleas answered. One time during a process of planning out their infiltration some of their members had the devious idea of turning the tables on the hunter. As she was fending off the blindingly agile [[Pantheon/WeaponWielding Valstrax]] they [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome somehow]] managed to bust out both [[Pantheon/{{Felines}} Teostra and Lunastra]] where they immediately tried to go after their captor.
** As vengeance for foiling her plans of enacting the end of the world, Gaea enlisted their help in taking out Percy Jackson and the other Half Bloods. Some gods find the thought of a being like Gaea enlisting the aid of [[TheAntiGod an Anti God]]'s own followers amusing in a way, but the Dark Brotherhood carries on. Word of mouth spread far enough that both they and their allies are alerted of the Dark Brotherhood gunning for them and are expecting them to come, whenever that time may be.
** Every now and then they get a contract to end the miserable life of Prime Minister Honest, and just as often one may find his corpse strewn about in a number of different ways. Originally it wasn't anything special but with the staggering amount of times they've been sent after him some of their members just up and decided to make it more of a spectacle by either the fourth or fifth time around. For example one time they found his roast corpse crammed inside an oven, his mouth stuffed with an apple... along with various other foods crammed down his throat. There are whispers going around that they plan on doing this with other increasingly common targets, such as with the Coachman. Judging by the sixth contract around ended with him chained up and completely drained of blood after having last been seen in the company of a strange little girl there's a definite truth behind that.
** They joined the fray of bounty hunters and other hired killers on taking down Samurai Jack by Aku's orders, a feat that has yet to be fulfilled. Persistent as they may be, Jack is no stranger to all manner of attempts on his life and even in battles he does struggle he still manages to pull through. His allies don't make this any easier, at the top of the list being Ashi who herself has a bone to pick with the Dark Brotherhood due to personal experiences.
** Contracts on Squidward Tentacles are abundant thanks to his fellow gods' disdain towards his [[DreadfulMusician god awful clarinet playing]]. So much so that in a short amount of time it has gotten to the point where a lottery is put in place between Dark siblings to determine who gets the honor of killing him themselves. No word on who won, at least until someone sees a member commit the deed themselves.
* Originally, the Dark Brotherhood wanted the title of '''[[MurderInc Syndicate Of Secretive Assassinations]]''' but they soon found out that they were already beaten by the Black Organization. They, mind you, were also swiftly establishing connections to their fellow ne'er-do-wells by the number. Nevertheless the Dark Brotherhood made their rivalry clear by ''foiling'' one of their hits and slaying the assassin in turn. Some say it was apart of a contract, but others say it was but simple spite to show they were definitive competitors in the business and aren't afraid of encroaching on their territory not unlike the Morag Tong. Regardless, the Black Organization seem to be vying for bringing along the Dark Brotherhood's various detractors over the course of history, assuming they haven't already.
** Aside from them, the Dark Brotherhood has been reported to have gone after those affiliated with the Brave Companions. One could make the distinction that they both share some similarities: Crazed killers working with whoever suits them, though the sellswords certainly outdo the Dark Brotherhood in depravity. That isn't to say the Dark Brotherhood are disgusted enough to gun for them, they were just contracted to do so. [[AssholeVictim Not everyone the assassins go after are textbook definition of saints]], and surprise surprise: A whole load of people want them dead. And the Dark Brotherhood are happy to provide.
** Other assassins tend to be viewed as rivals, if not outright enemies depending on the individual. While the relationship between the likes of Agent 47 are viewed under a lens of a professional rivalry, others like the entirety of Night Raid, Gunvolt, and the Assassins Brotherhood think of them as nothing more than contemptible scum. The Old Man of the Mountain in particular has made his disdain for them clear, what with them choosing to follow an entity like Sithis and all.
* Though vilified by just about everyone across the continent of Tamriel, the sole exception to this are [[LizardFolk the Argonians of Black Marsh]]. The Hist, [[WiseTree sentient trees]] whom they worship and depend on, acknowledge Sithis as the "Original Creator". Thus, Argonians born under the Shadow are [[TykeBomb taken at birth to be trained as Dark Brotherhood assassins]]. The order was said to have been wiped out by the fourth era, but the Dark Brotherhood's reemergence in the Pantheon may of rendered this point moot. In any case, there are some suspicions that the Brotherhood seem to have taken an interest in utilizing the Hunter Series of B.O.W.s for their own ends. Apparently they took a liking to the creatures' inherent sadism and killing prowess and found observing them taking on prey to be quite satisfying.
* If there's anyone in the Pantheon this order of assassins truly despise, Light Yagami would definitely be high up on that list. While some family members were out scouting the Pantheon they came upon the existence of the Death Note and desired it to be theirs for it's potential in carrying out someone's death. At some point they had tipped off Kira and the KnightTemplar became a thorn on their side ever since.
* Having survived assassins in her own classroom out to kill her, Haru Ichinose has tried to avoid their presence whenever she can. Though no one placed a hit on her for the Dark Brotherhood many of its different members would want to entertain the thought of [[AssassinOutclassin testing her claim to godhood]], bodyguard or no.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ9GaYGJEWE This is probably how shopping goes in the Dark Brotherhood]]. Probably. Maybe. Possibly. So says some gods and goddesses in the House of Pantheon/{{Commerce}} one day anyways.
--> [[Series/{{Bruiser}} "I mean could [the poison] kill a pet? Quite a LARGE pet? A sort of almost... PERSON-sized pet...?"]]
* There have been many who have served the Dark Brotherhood over the years, and apparently even some of [[PlayerCharacter the heroes]] across Tamriel's history have worked with them. For example, there are rumors circulating that the Dragonborn was not only apart of them, but a Listener and the one responsible for their survival. Based on the MadGod Sheogorath's ramblings there are hints that he, as the Champion of Cyrodiil, was also a Listener and there for the events that transpired. The implications become more interesting as Sheogorath himself was once described as "Sithis-shaped hole" in the world. Whatever the case may be, it makes people think twice about crossing them if individuals of such revere really were Dark Brothers/Sisters themselves.
* Believing that they will continue to serve Sithis in the void even after their passing, they find the existence of [[Pantheon/{{Dimensions}} the Empty]] and by proxy the Shadow... peculiar. There have been a number of theories going around between supposed connections involving them and Sithis, but these be best left alone.
* Hail Sithis.

* Unknown to him, He was spawned from an atheist attempt to ParodyReligion. Specifically, He'd be a TakeThat to [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalism and creationism]]. However, [[GoneHorriblyRight Pastafarianism may actually have become its own religion]]...[[PoesLaw or more people in on the joke]]. Ned Flanders seems to have gotten the joke and is rather insulted at his existence.

* If the Flagellant has to he is willing to work with less than virtuous individuals should their goals align well enough. He, like the rest of the religious heroes, have no problem working with grave robbers, occultists, and [[NightmareFetishist enthusiastic]] plague doctors. What surprised many is that this even extends far enough to include the Hunter who, temporary transformations aside, [[spoiler:can become a Great One]] and Ludwig whos [[CaptainObvious quite noticeably]] a bestial monstrosity. [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration Back then, working with such folks wouldn't even be possible]], and even now the tension isn't exactly hidden. Though for the latter, it likely helps that Ludwig was the first Healing Church Hunter and despite his form he still maintains his sanity. That, and his hate for Micolash and the Great Ones is stronger. And at least the Heir is willing to help keep them working together.
