Stendarr is the God of Righteous Might and Merciful Forbearance. He is the inspiration of magistrates and rulers, the patron of the Imperial Legions and the comfort of the law-abiding citizen. Stendarr has evolved from his Nordic origins into a deity of compassion or sometimes, righteous rule. He is said to have accompanied Tiber Septim in his later years. In early Altmeri legends, Stendarr is the apologist of Men.
Cults and followers
In Skyrim, the fanatical Vigilants of Stendarr wander the countryside, looking to distribute justice. On being questioned, Vigilants say that they formed their order after the Oblivion Crisis. Their objective is to eradicate certain undesirables from Nirn, namely necromancers, conjurers, and especially Daedra.
"Come to me, Stendarr, for without you, I might be deaf to the manswarm murmurings of thy people, and forgetting their need for comfort and wisdom, I might indulge myself in vain scribbling."
