Malacath, Daedric Prince of Orcs
Aliases- Mauloch, the God of Curses, Orkey, or Old Knocker

Malacath, whose sphere is the patronage of the spurned and ostracized, the Sworn Oath, and the Bloody Curse, maintains a realm called the Ashpit. It is described as an ash-grayed realm without sky or ground, only particles or ashes that are floating, falling and whirling; it is where anguish, betrayal, and broken promises like ash filled the bitter air.

The summoning date of Malacath is 8th of Frost Fall. Malacath can also be summoned in his shrine, if the summoner offered Troll Fat.

Malacath is one of the Four Corners of the House of Troubles; he tests the Dunmer for physical weakness.

Malacath was once the Aldmeri deity known as Trinimac, until he was defeated and devoured by Boethiah. Because of this, the other Daedric Princes do not recognize or acknowledge him as one of their own, fitting his sphere perfectly.

As Trinimac was transformed into Malacath, his devout Elven followers were transformed into the Orsimer (“Pariah Folk” in Elvish), or Orcs.

Due to his role in their transformation and their mutual histories of hardships and ostracization, Malacath is considerd the Patron Saint of the Orcs.
