The Talos Cult is a group of worshippers of the great Tiber Septim, founder of the Third Empire. In order to join, new recruits swear an oath to give up their lives in attempting to put a strong man back on the throne of Tamriel. They have many followers in the Legions, conspiring to assassinate whoever the current emperor may be and replace him to prevent the Empire's decline.
In 3E 427, the Talos Cult began a conspiracy to assassinate Emperor Uriel Septim VII during a rumored visit to Vvardenfell. This was prevented by the Nerevarine, who executed the members of the cult in Gnisis by order of the Imperial Legion.
