During the Third Era, a Conjurer of the Mages Guild—possibly the Hero of Kvatch—learned of the "Shade of the Revenant" from a book called the Necromancer's Moon while investigating a mage named Falcar. The Conjurer went to the Dark Fissure on a tip from Bothiel and Raminus Polus and witnessed a necromancer creating Black Soul Gems.
