Marukh the Seer (also spelled Maruhk) was a First Era prophet who rose to prominence during the Camoran Dynasty and became especially esteemed among the inhabitants of Alessian Cyrodiil. Marukh's teachings sparked the massive cultural and spiritual movement known as the Alessian Order, a theocracy that transformed the Empire and the continent. He also wrote the Alessian Doctrines, which provide the base of law for the Alessian Empire and is credited with the phrase "All are guilty until they have proven themselves innocent",[1] a cruel concept according to some.[2]

Marukh's teachings began to question the validity of Elven rule after speaking to the "Enlightened One", Saint Alessia, in a vision. These sentiments led to an increasingly abstract and unknowable depiction of a Single God.[3] They heavily influenced the Alessian Order and their secret sect, the Marukhati Selective. The priesthood of Marukh saw no difference between spiritual and political matters. It was the religion of the Alessian Empire, and it taught that to resist the Emperor was to resist the Gods.[4]

One of Marukh's chief supporters, the Nordic High King, Borgas, became a victim of Valenwood's infamous Wild Hunt as he traveled to Cyrodiil to urge a joint war against the Bosmer.[5]

The Bretons of the Iliac Bay celebrate Marukh's Day on the 9th of Second Seed. It is a solemn holiday, as befits the equally solemn prophet.[6]


  • ^  Marukh is frequently referred to as a "monkey" or "ape," with no other sources assigning him a race.[7][8][oog 1] The only known intelligent race that could be thus described is the Imga of Valenwood.
