Staff of Chaos

The Staff of Chaos (also known as the Balac-thurm[1]) is a highly powerful, magical artifact that was fashioned in the early First Era by Loreth. The staff was deemed too powerful and was hidden in the catacombs beneath the city of Mournhold. Jagar Tharn (Imperial Battlemage to Emperor Uriel Septim VII) managed to obtain it by manipulating the Dunmer queen Barenziah, either by disguising himself as a bard known as "Nightingale"[2] or by employing Drayven Indoril to fill the role.[3]


Tharn used the staff to transport Uriel Septim VII and his personal guard to a plane of Oblivion. He then used a spell to make him look like Uriel Septim, and broke the Staff of Chaos into eight pieces that he hid all around Tamriel. The Eternal Champion collected all eight pieces and used the staff against Tharn, defeating him, and then he used the staff again to bring back the Emperor and his personal guard and end the Imperial Simulacrum.[4]

After the Eternal Champion touched the Jewel of Fire with the Staff of Chaos the magical items disappeared, while at the same time Uriel Septim and his guard were brought back to Mundus. Most people believe the Staff was either somehow destroyed or banished into Oblivion, though both ideas were considered impossible before the Simulacrum.
