As this is the first of hopefully many articles and discussions, to be had here. Let us begin well in the beginning. In the time before time, there was Anu. Anu was existence, he was all things. However he was still a being, and all beings sometimes give into self reflection. Anu asked himself the greatest question we have known throughout the ages. What am I? In order to comprehend himself he created the distinction between his body and soul. He called this Anui-El. His soul, all the things he could be, endless possibilities. However even Anu knew that all things must have limits. So he divided himself once more. This new being would be called Sithis. Sithis invented structure and limitation. So we have Anu, the everything. Anui-El the light, endless possibilities. And Sithis, the dark, the limits of existence. Sithis and "The Void" Due to modern day misconceptions Sithis is thought to live in a real simply know to man as "The void". Where he awaits the souls of those murder at the hand of another. The Void is actually a realm called Aubris. At this point time had still not begun. Aubris was full of turmoil and confusion. A place filled with nothingness, yet everything. Anui-El and the creation of time. Anui-El could do nothing but think. He though for the sake of thought itself. With the limitless aspects of himself and no way to piece them together, or comprehend how things fit. All the possible aspects of Anui-El wish to have a chance to reflect on themselves. The needed schedule, order, a way to work with each other. Hence Anui-El created the very thing that is the foundation of life. Time. This aspect was called Auri-El. Aubris and the et'Ada. With the aspect of existence know as Auri-El (Time). The other Aspects of Anui-El were able to manifest themselves. Many of them taking on name the the average man may know. Mara (Love) Stendarr (Strength and Mercy), and so on. As with everything Anui-El and Sithis. There must be a balance. The Aspect of Sithis then came to be. Lorkhan. Lorkhan was Sithis incarnate, only less. Just as Sithis was the set of limitations Anu had placed on Anui-El. Lorkhan was the limitations of all the et'Ada combined. Simply meaning Lorkhan could be everything the others were not. To put it in another was Auri-El was time. Therefore Lorkhan was the end of time. Mara, love. Lorkhan, Hate. The creation of Mundus Lorkhan the sly one, conversed with the other et'Ada. Weaving stories of a place where they could create further aspects of themselves. He called it Mundus. Lorkhan to be unbiased gave the throne of the new plane to the eldest Aspect, Auri-El. As they put their plan into action, Mundus was born. The et'Ada were no longer aspects on one conscience, yet individuals. They became the Gods. The Sundering: Lorkhan had not been out right and honest in his intentions. as each aspect of Auri-El existed so to did Lorkhan have his aspects. He brought death, despair, and chaos to Mundus. During these events the et'Ada gained mortality and began to die. Some of the more clever, tried to escape this realm, and return to Aubris. One of which was Magnus. Tearing the boarders of Mundus he created the sun. Others saw and attempted to follow suit, tearing their own holes, creating the stars. The stars or Magne Ge are the source of all magic in Mundus. The creation of Nirn: The gods that could not escape and knew that some how the must survive. Some choose to become the Ehlnofey. The Ehlnofey are the physical laws of nature. Also called the Earthbones. Each one contributed something to existence. With Magic gone from the realm. Nirn began to stabilize. Others sought another way. Auri-El for example married and procreated. The children had children. As time went on each generation grew a bit weaker than the last. Eventually Acharyai was born. The first Aldmeri Ancestor. Lorkhan displeased with the happiness the others had found took the weakest willed souls on Nirn and enslaved them. He called them Men.
