Hircine, whose spirit is the hunt, the sports of Daedra, the greatest game, the chase and sacrifice of mortals; known by the names The Huntsman of The Princes, and The Father of Manbeasts.
Circa 3E 430, Daedric Prince Hircine showed up in Solstheim, a disputed island between Morrowind and Skyrim. Roughly every thousand years, Hircine comes to the island to perform a hunting game. To the Skaal, this period is known as the Bloodmoon Prophecy. His coming is always preceded by three signs: “Fire From the Eye of Glass”, “Tide of Woe” and “Bloodmoon”, when the young moon itself runs red. Hircine is responsible for the creation of Lycanthropes.
