God of the Cycle of Birth and Death

Description Wayshrine Locations

Member of the Nine Divines pantheon, and popular elsewhere as well. Arkay is often more important in those cultures where his father, Akatosh, is either less related to time or where his time aspects are difficult to comprehend by the layman. He is the god of burials and funeral rites, and is sometimes associated with the seasons. His priests are staunch opponents of necromancy and all forms of the undead. It is said that Arkay did not exist before the world was created by the gods under Lorkhan's supervision/urging/trickery. Therefore, he is sometimes called the Mortals' God.

Temple Description by Outsiders Temple Descripton by Members
The Order of Arkay is a religious order dedicated to the worship of Arkay, the God of the Cycle of Birth and Death. We are the Order of Arkay, the God of Birth and Death. Arkay is the great spirit who brings every man and woman, human, elf, khajiit, and Argonian into this world, and when the time is true, ends their circle. Arkay is fertility and blight, joy and sorrow. At the Order, we celebrate the Blessed Neutrality that Arkay stands for. While we do not offer strangers blessings, for to give favor or curse would be to upset the eternal balance, the Order offers much to its members. Our libraries and sages are some of the finest in Tamriel. Of course, few are worthy to be initiated into the mysteries of Birth and Death.
Blessing
No blessing from Arkay.
