[这些摘录于一本描述各种迪得拉情况的大部头书籍]

阿祖拉,代表黎明与黄昏,即充满魔力的暮光之中间领域,以月影,蔷薇圣母,夜空女王而为人所知。 勃耶西亚,代表欺骗与诡诈,以及对于谋杀,暗杀,通敌和非法颠覆权威的秘密图谋。 克拉维萨斯•维里,代表力量与祝福之赐予,以仪式的祈祷和条约的形式进行。 赫玛耐斯•莫拉,代表命运好坏之占卜,以窥伺星象和穹隆而预判过去与未来,以及预知知识和记忆在何方掌控之中。 赫希恩,代表迪德拉之狩猎,运动,竞技,追捕。以猎手,兽人之父而为人所知。 玛拉凯斯,代表抛弃与放逐,是誓言和恶咒的守护者。 莫拉恩斯•达根,代表毁灭,变更,革新,能量与雄心。 梅法拉,世人对其不甚了解;以织网者,纺织者和蜘蛛而为人所知;她持之以恒的目标似乎是介入凡人的事物供她消遣。 梅瑞迪亚,世人对其不甚了解;他与生物的活力有关。 莫拉格•巴尔,代表对凡人的控制与奴役;他醉心于在凡人的领域散布斗争和纠纷的种子,以此大肆收割凡人的灵魂,并使其受己支配。 娜米拉,代表远古之黑暗;以迪得拉精魂,冥冥的统治者,影之精魂而为人所知;与蜘蛛,昆虫,蛀虫和其它会激起凡人恶心感的不愉生物有关。 诺克特纳尔,代表夜晚和黑暗;以夜之女士为人所知。 佩伊特,代表最低级的湮灭地域;以任务主管为人所知。 桑吉恩,代表狂欢和放纵,以及黑暗本性的狂放纵容。 希奥格拉丝,代表疯狂;他的行为是莫名其妙的。 维耶尼玛,代表美梦和噩梦之境,并根据梦境推断邪恶的征兆。 [出于兴趣,在“玛拉凯斯”这一词头下特地作了个记号,你会发现这里提及一把称为惩罚的槌形武器,它是受到玛拉凯斯祝福的,并献给凡人使用。简言之,它暗示任何想要使用武器附带力量的迪得拉将会被放逐到湮灭地域的空虚暗流中。] “在所有的迪得拉的远古神器中,很多是很有名的,比如阿祖拉之星,希奥格拉丝的神奇的变化法杖。其它一些就不那么有名了,比如迪得拉之鞭,麦克汉之槌,迪得拉之毒…” “尽管玛拉凯斯在惩罚上下咒使它对迪得拉一族强烈不利,但他没想到它竟然还会落入迪得拉族之手,并被用来当作解决魔人劣民和被遗忘者私人恩怨的工具。于是玛拉凯斯最后下了这样的诅咒,任何想要唤起这武器力量的迪得拉族也将开启一个空虚之境而将他吞入,把他泻入湮灭地域的空虚暗流中,从那里回溯至真实与虚幻之世界,一切时间自有安排。”

The Book of Daedra
Excerpts from a lengthy tome describing the nature of each of the Daedra


Azura, whose sphere is dusk and dawn, the magic in-between realms of twilight, known as Moonshadow, Mother of the Rose, and Queen of the Night Sky.
Boethiah, whose sphere is deceit and conspiracy, and the secret plots of murder, assassination, treason, and unlawful overthrow of authority.
Clavicus Vile, whose sphere is the granting of power and wishes through ritual invocations and pacts.
Hermaeus Mora, whose sphere is scrying of the tides of Fate, of the past and future as read in the stars and heavens, and in whose dominion are the treasures of knowledge and memory.
Hircine, whose sphere is the Hunt, the Sport of Daedra, the Great Game, the Chase, known as the Huntsman and the Father of Manbeasts.
Malacath, whose sphere is the patronage of the spurned and ostracized, the keeper of the Sworn Oath, and the Bloody Curse.
Mehrunes Dagon, whose sphere is Destruction, Change, Revolution, Energy, and Ambition.
Mephala, whose sphere is obscured to mortals; known by the names Webspinner, Spinner, and Spider; whose only consistent theme seems to be interference in the affairs of mortals for her amusement.
Meridia, whose sphere is obscured to mortals; who is associated with the energies of living things.
Molag Bal, whose sphere is the domination and enslavement of mortals; whose desire is to harvest the souls of mortals and to bring mortals' souls within his sway by spreading seeds of strife and discord in the mortal realms.
Namira, whose sphere is the ancient Darkness; known as the Spirit Daedra, ruler of sundry dark and shadowy spirits; associated with spiders, insects, slugs, and other repulsive creatures which inspire mortals with an instinctive revulsion.
Nocturnal, whose sphere is the night and darkness; who is known as the Night Mistress.
Peryite, whose sphere is the ordering of the lowest orders of Oblivion, known as the Taskmaster.
Sanguine, whose sphere is hedonistic revelry and debauchery, and passionate indulgences of darker natures.
Sheogorath, whose sphere is Madness, and whose motives are unknowable.
Vaermina, whose sphere is the realm of dreams and nightmares, and from whose realm issues forth evil omens.


Especially marked for special interest under the heading "Malacath" you find a reference to SCOURGE, blessed by Malacath, and dedicated to the use of mortals. In short, the reference suggests that any Daedra attempting to invoke the weapon's powers will be expelled into the voidstreams of Oblivion.

"Of the legendary artifacts of the Daedra, many are well known, like Azura's Star, and Sheogorath's Wabbajack. Others are less well known, like Scourge, Mackkan's Hammer, Bane of Daedra...."
"...yet though Malacath blessed Scourge to be potent against his Daedra kin, he thought not that it should fall into Daedric hands, then to serve as a tool for private war among caitiff and forsaken. Thus did Malacath curse the device such that, should any dark kin seek to invoke its powers, that a void should open and swallow that Daedra, and purge him into Oblivion's voidstreams, from thence to pathfind back to the Real and Unreal Worlds in the full order of time."
