|Chronological and political information|
Jyggalag (in Daedric script, ) is the Daedric Prince Of Order, who represents logical order and deduction. He has taken account of every detail of the world and every action every creature ever took, whether mortal or Daedric , well before their time. He also believes in certainty and predestination, and for individuality to be an illusion. He is the only prince not to have a corresponding artifact in Skyrim.
Ties with Sheogorath
Jyggalag was at one time a powerful Daedric Prince, so powerful that the other Princes began to fear his power. As a result, they cursed him to live in opposition of everything he stood for, to live the life of a madman and bring chaos and insanity rather than order and logic. Henceforth, Jyggalag became known as the Daedric Prince of Madness, Sheogorath.
However, Jyggalag is allowed to return to his original form once after every era, an event known in the Shivering Isles as the Greymarch. During this period, Jyggalag exerts control over "his" realm to summon the Knights of Order, his emotionless, vicious minions, to attack and burn everything in the Isles to the ground. Near the end of the Greymarch, Sheogorath "leaves" the Isles and Jyggalag appears in person to finish the Isles off. In reality, Sheogorath simply transforms into Jyggalag. Sheogorath then "returns" to recreate the Isles and its inhabitants, causing him some suffering.
Apotheosis of the Champion of Cyrodiil
After the death of Uriel Septim VII, the Greymarch began once again. This time, however, Sheogorath sent an "invitation" of sorts to Mundus in the form of a strange door. The Hero of Kvatch went through and met with Sheogorath, who appointed him his champion. Through the Champion's actions, Jyggalag's plans were foiled. Jyggalag was forced to confront the Champion one-on-one, and was defeated by the Champion. His defeat, however, released Jyggalag from his curse. Jyggalag, again free to wander Oblivion in his true form, disclosed his story to the Champion and named him the new Prince of Madness before departing. Jyggalag is actually the only Daedric Prince without a known artifact.
