Almalexia is a fictional character and antagonist in the game The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. She is one of the three "living gods" of the Tribunal Temple and is only explicitly seen in the Tribunal expansion.
Almalexia in MorrowindEdit
From information given by NPCs from Morrowind, Almalexia was once the "most visible member of the Tribunal," but, quite possibly due to her eventual descent into insanity, she withdrew from the public eye. Vivec also reveals that he feared that she would attempt to murder him; his fears are confirmed, for she eventually kills Sotha Sil in his "Clockwork City", and proclaims her intent to dispose of Vivec next. When the Nerevarine comes to Mournhold, Almalexia asks him/her to do a number of tasks for her so that she can strengthen her hold of the city. Almalexia devises a plan to destroy the Nerevarine, Sotha Sil, and Vivec, in an attempt to seize power as the sole living God in Morrowind. She stages an attack on the city of Mournhold, and lies to the Nerevarine by telling him/her that Sotha Sil has gone insane and needs to be stopped. The Nerevarine goes to Sotha Sil's Clockwork City to stop him, but he/she discovers that Sotha Sil is already dead. Almalexia appears before him/her and explains that she did not intend the Nerevarine to survive, but to become a martyr to the people of Mournhold. She reveals that she killed Sotha Sil with the aid of an artefact that the Nerevarine himself had unwittingly procured for her.
As of the events of the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, it is apparent that Almalexia's death remains unacknowledged by the majority of Morrowind, let alone the rest of Tamriel; only Vivec, King Helseth, and his mother Barenziah were able to realize the fall of the goddess. She is still worshipped as a god by the Dunmer, and the Hands of Almalexia still stand guard in her great sanctuary awaiting her return.
Hands of AlmalexiaEdit
The Hands of Almalexia are the personal guards of the goddess Almalexia. They stand guard around her in the high chapel of Mournhold. The order consists of five members (six before the death of Salas Valor, a Hand that deserted the order). Their weapons and armor bear powerful magical enchantments given by Almalexia herself.
