Today we’re taking a look at one of the most influential and yet obscure characters in the Elder Scrolls lore. This person has, if some texts are to be believed, formed multiple empires, committed acts of genocide against both elves and the land of Tamriel itself, and possibly came from the future. Today we’re asking, who is Pelinal?
Turns out that there wasn’t a whole lot on Pelinal himself, so this effectively turned into a Close Read of The Song of Pelinal. Enjoy!
