The War of Manifest Metaphors was a war that took place during the Dawn Era and culminated at the start of the Merethic Era. It involved the unmaking of Lorkhan.[1] According to Fal Droon, an exact narrative of the war, fought between the Aedra and Lorkhan, cannot be clearly defined.[2] It is known that sometime during the war, the Heart of Lorkhan was separated from Lorkhan's body, which was later used to turn the Tribunal into gods.[3][4][5]
