M'aiq the Liar, as he appears in Skyrim.

"M'aiq knows much, and tells some. M'aiq knows many things others do not."
―M'aiq the Liar[src]

M'aiq the Liar is a recurring source of misinformation in the Elder Scrolls series, featured in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls Online. He was introduced by the game designers as an easter egg to provide commentaries about the Elder Scrolls series.


Wherever he is found, he loves to share his opinions with those he meets on a variety of random topics including children, Colovian fur helms, companions, crossbows, dragons, fighting with one's feet, fish sticks, nudity, werewolves and more. He almost always speaks in third-person when spoken to, like most Khajiit. He is marked as an essential character in all games and thus cannot be killed.
