Appeared in: TES3: Tribunal.

Almalexia is one of the three immortals God-Kings of Morrowind, the wife of Lord Nerevar, and later the consort of Lord Vivec. Boethiah is the Anticipation of Almalexia: the male to her female. She is known as the Mercy of ALMSIVI, and represents the 'selfishness of the sea.'

The background information about Almalexia before the War of the Red Mountain is vague and shrouded in myth and legend. Most is found in the "36 Sermons of Vivec." She was recorded during the War of the First Council as the member of the Tribunal and the wife of Nerevar.

After the War of the First Council and the death of Nerevar, Almalexia, along with Sotha Sil and Vivec, climbed the Red Mountain and entered the Heart Chamber. Sotha Sil had previously studied the Kagrenac's Tools, and gained knowledge how to use the tools to produce certain tone in order to tap the divine power of Lorkhan's Heart. Without resistance, the three used the tools and established the link to the heart. The three gained the immortality and the power of the gods, but were cursed by Azura, who also prophesied the return of Nerevar.

There are two conflicting accounts on this event. The first is the book titled "Nerevar at Red Mountain" that was written from the oral tradition of the Ashlanders, which in turn was based on the story of Alandro Sul, a shield-companion of Nerevar. The book states that when Nerevar brought the news that he possessed the Kagrenac's Tools to the Tribunal, the Tribunal saw the great potential for the tools to give them divine powers and immortality. Nerevar was against this idea; therefore they had to murder Nerevar.

The second book, titled "The Battle of Red Mountain, and the Rise and Fall of the Tribunal" contains the official statement from the Tribunal about Nerevar and their ascension to godhood. Nerevar forced the Tribunal to make oath on Daedric Prince Azura that they would never use the Kagrenac's Tools. Once Nerevar died, the Tribunal broke the oath and used the tools to make themselves gods.

Regardless of the conflicting sources, the Chimer race was turned to the Dunmer with ash colored skin and red eyes. The warning of Azura became the Prophecy of Nerevarine and popular among the Ashlanders. The Tribunal ruled as the immortal god-king of the Morrowind.

In the end of First Era, Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon was summoned by an angry witch to kill the Duke of Mournhold along with his city. Mehrunes Dagon managed to kill the duke and destroy most of the city before Almalexia and Sotha Sil arrived to stop him. They managed to send back Mehrunes Dagon back to Oblivion, preventing for further destruction.

Later, Ada'Soom Dir-Kamal of Akavir invaded Morrowind. Almalexia summoned the Underking to help her facing the force of Akavir.

Late in the Second Era, Dagoth Ur and his brothers emerged to Heart Chamber and ambushed Almalexia and Sotha Sil, following the event, the access to Heart of Lorkhan was blocked for the Tribunal.

The threat from Dagoth Ur's minions grew as the years went on. The Tribunal established a chain of magical barrier surrounding the Red mountain, called the Ghostfence. And another misfortune struck the Tribunal, Keening and Sunder were captured by Dagoth Odros and Dagoth Vemyn. The Tribunal continued to grow weaker without access to the Heart and also providing the resources required maintaining the Ghostfence.

Then late in the Third Era, the Emperor Uriel Septim VII sent his agent to Morrowind to investigate the prophecy about the Nerevarine and the emerging Sixth House. The agent eventually became the Nerevarine and killed Dagoth Ur. Almost the same time, Helseth became the new King of Mournhold. Troubled by the new king, the reincarnation of her murdered husband, and the loss of her godhood, Almalexia went insane.

Almalexia manipulated the Nerevarine to procure Barilzar's Mazed Band, which she used to teleport herself to the hidden city of Sotha Sil. She killed Sotha Sil and used Sotha Sil's creation, the Fabricants, to attack Mournhold, and blamed all the troubles to Sotha Sil. She asked the Nerevarine to confront Sotha Sil and stop his madness.

When the Nerevarine arrived in the Clockwork City of Sotha Sil, he found Sotha Sil had already dead and was confronted by Almalexia. Almalexia planned to kill the Nerevarine and then Helseth and Vivec, in order to become the sole ruler of Morrowind. However the plan was ruined, Almalexia was killed in the Clockwork City by the Nerevarine.
