"As you know, he's probably the oldest and most powerful wizard alive. Not counting liches, or divine sorcerers like Vivec, of course."
Uupse Fyr[src]

Divayth Fyr is a powerful 4000-year-old Dunmer Sorcerer and member of House Telvanni who resided in Tel Fyr in Zafirbel Bay. He served as the caretaker of Corprusarium, a quarantine area serving to treat those infected with Corprus.

Though a member of House Telvanni, he generally stays out of House politics and has no intention of joining the Council. He lives with his four women with the surname Fyr; Alfe, Beyte, Delte, and Uupse. He refers to them as his "daughters" while they call themselves his "wives," but they are in fact his clones.


Divayth was born in the early First Era in Tel Aruhn as a Chimer.[1] His friendship with Yagrum Bagarn is also proof of this. Within that time, Divayth Fyr became a powerful and intelligent mage. Following the War of the First Council and Disappearance of the Dwarves, Divayth along with the rest of the Chimer became Dunmer.[2]

Shortly after the later years of the Reman Empire during Savirien Chorak's reign, Fyr assisted his good friend Morian Zenas with the transliminal sojourn project, the final goal being a trip into the realm of Oblivion.[3] During a visit to the Imperial City, Fyr attempted to become romantically involved with Zenas' associate, Doctor Alfidia Lupus,[4] and Lupus later told Fyr she and Zenas had already become involved.[5] Fyr and Zenas later succeeded in travelling to Oblivion, though only Fyr returned to Tamriel, with Zenas remaining in Apocrypha.[6]

Divayth is one of the oldest and powerful members of House Telvanni, though usually prefers to stay out of house politics. He showed no interest in joining the Council.[7] Fyr trained Master Aryon as his student, before Aryon became the owner of Tel Vos.[8] Aryon remarked that Fyr was so well respected by the House he could have gotten a seat on the Council by merely asking, and was more powerful than Neloth or Gothren.[9]

He cloned himself and created female versions of him, Alfe FyrBeyte FyrDelte Fyr, and Uupse Fyr, apparently using jars and his own flesh. While he calls them his daughters, they call themselves his wives. Divayth Fyr kept a large collection of rare items in Corprusarium, claiming that when one gets old, one must have a "hobby." These items included Daedric artifacts.[7]

When Dagoth Ur disseminated the Corprus Disease in Vvardenfell, Divayth Fyr created the Corprusarium to house victims of Corprus while he works on finding a cure.[7] When the Nerevarine contracted the Corprus disease, Divayth Fyr gave them an experimental cure after retrieving the Dwemer Boots of Flying. The potion was successful, and while not curing Corprus completely, it did remove the negative effects of the disease.[2]

When Baar Dau fell and Red Mountain erupted, causing the Red Year and subsequent Argonian Invasion, it is unknown what happened to Divayth Fyr.
