“Hermaeus Mora is the Daedric prince of fate, knowledge, and memory. In his rare dealings with mortals, he often chooses to appear as a grotesque mass of tentacles.” -Skyrim loading screen.
What’s that? Fate, Gnosis, and Mentalism? That is correct. He is the Simon Magus incarnation in the realm of Tamriel, in an alternate world with different physics where they really had magic in the middle ages and they never ended because let’s face it, technology sucks ass compared to magic!
Hermaeus Mora even loves Apocrypha and lives in Oblivion, a place from Greek mythology that influenced Hell in some ways but referred to the world how it really is. The world we cannot see but through a glass dimly. Time and Astrology are associated with him showing an affinity to the concepts of the daimon and fate. He is the lord over forbidden gnosis.
He’s even a vampire with an international taste for every race.
