Ebony Mail as it appears in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

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.

In Arena Edit

During the Third Era, the Eternal Champion was an owner of the mail. It was hidden in Black Marsh after the previous owner, a warrior named Helath Stormbinder lost the favor of Boethiah. Following a strange map, the Eternal Champion eventually found the resting place of the mail and retrieved it for his war against Jagar Tharn.

In Daggerfall Edit
