Boethiah is the Daedric prince who rules over deceit, conspiracy, secret plots of murder, assassination, treason, and unlawful overthrow of authority. Boethiah is depicted as a great caped warrior, often in a stoic pose. She is also known as the Anticipation of Almalexia. Boethiah loves competition and battle.
Heralded by the Prophet Veloth, Boethiah is the original god-ancestor of the Dunmer. Through her illuminations, the eventual ‘Chimer’, or Changed Folk, renounced all ties to the Aldmer and founded a new nation based on Daedric principles. All manner of Dark Elven cultural ‘advances’ are attributed to Boethiah, from philosophy to magic to ‘responsible’ architecture. Ancient Velothi allegories are uniformly heroic successes of Boethiah over enemies of every type, foundation stories of Chimeri struggle.
