Mehrunes Dagon, Daedric Prince of Destruction, Change, Revolution, Energy, and Ambition
Aliases- Leaper Demon King

Mehrunes Dagon, whose sphere is destruction, change, revolution, energy, and ambition, maintains a series of realms called the Deadlands. According to the “Doors of Oblivion”, the realms are stormy with dark twisted trees, howling spirits and billowing mist. But from the records during the Oblivion Crisis the realms of Mehrunes Dagon are masses of small fiery realms with lava as sea and fire as the sky, complete with twisted plants like Blood Grass, poisoned Spiddal Stick and bloodthirsty Harrada Root.

The summoning date of Mehrunes Dagon is 20th of Sun's Dusk.

Mehrunes Dagon is one of the Four Corners of the House of Troubles; he is associated with natural dangers like fire, earthquakes, and floods, representing the inhospitable land of Morrowind to some. He tests the Dunmer will to survive and persevere.

Mehrunes Dagon attempted to invade all of Tamriel during the 3rd Era in a war known as the Oblivion Crisis. His cult of worshippers, known as the Mythic Dawn, assassinated Uriel Septim VII and all known heirs to the Septim dynasty, leaving the Amulet of Kings without a wearer, extinguishing the Dragonfires and allowing Oblivion Gates to emerge all across Tamriel. Dagon was stopped by the illegitimate son of Uriel Septim VII, Martin Septim, who sacrificed himself in a last ditch effort to shut the maw of Oblivion by smashing the Amulet of Kings, transforming himself into a fiery avatar of Akatosh that defeated the Prince in combat.
