The Ebony Mail, also suffixed as Ebony Mail of Sneaking and Poison Radius Damage, is a Daedric Artifact granted by the Daedra Prince Boethiah upon completing a quest which varies across each title in the series. Initially appearing in The Elder Scrolls: Arena, the only game in the main series that it does not appear in is The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Worn about the chest as armor, the artifact is typically black in color across games with various magical effects.
