A creature from the sump of Umbriel that gets used as an ingredient in its kitchens.


A type of fish that can be eaten salted. Annaïg's father has some of the meat at his house.


A featureless wormlike creature found in the sump of Umbriel. Whenever a person on Umbriel dies, the Ingenium calls a proform down to it and gives it a soul, and the proform attaches to the wall of the sump and grows into a person.


Sea-Drakes are immense fish found in the sea around Black Marsh. They are described as being "like a crocodile, but with paddles instead of legs".


Shearteeth are a type of fish found in the Sump on Umbriel. They have a "maw full of teeth", they can reach at least fifteen feet long, have a long long whip-like tail, dual swimming fins on the underside, "teeth that would shame a shark", and a tough hide. They are usually non-aggressive but will attack someone if the sump considers them a threat. It appears that a rare alchemy ingredient called "Sheartooth loin" is harvested by Skraw for the kitchens of Umbriel, as Annaïg received some (among other things) from a Skraw working for Glim.


Shines are wispy yellow airborne creatures, a harmless cousin of the will-o'-wisp. They are seen in the Old Imperial Quarter of Lilmoth.

Singe Anemone

A type of anemone found in the Sump on Umbriel. They have stingers, and because Mere-Glim's scales protected him from them, he took over the job of collecting them.


A creature from Elsweyr, said to be better in the desert than horses.


Soul-spinners are creatures of Umbriel, responsible for harvesting souls. They catch souls in their lines, and then the larva fly down to the prey. The larvae are moth-like and roughly as big as a person, with a round black head that only contains a needle. They are six-legged, and each leg ends in a similar needle. When they fly down to Nirn, they become ethereal and leave a silvery thread behind.


Trogfish are a type of fish found in Black Marsh. Mere-Glim would dive for them when he and Annaïg went to the levee at Yor-Tiq.


Wisperills are luminescent films which float through the air in the realm of the Hist. They perform slow, colorful, aerial dances in the air. They were named by Mere-Glim and Fhena when Umbriel is brought to the realm.

Zilh Worm

A type of worm found on Umbriel, known to be a parasite. Toel thinks of this when Annaïg tries to explain the concept of pregnancy.


  • Scamps and Dreugh also appear in the novel. Annaïg spots some dreugh fleeing from Umbriel, and scamps are used as assistants to the chefs on Umbriel for hot work, because heat does not bother them.



Argonian political party that dominates Lilmothian politics. Mere-Glim claims that when the Oblivion Gates opened, they poured into Oblivion with such fury and might that Mehrunes Dagon was forced to close the gates. They refer to Argonians who have been living under Imperial ways as "Lukiul", or "Assimilated".

College of Whispers

One of the two factions into which the Mages Guild has split, the other being the Synod.


An insurgent faction from County Skingrad. They have distinctive arrows and often behead the bodies of people they've killed. When Radhasa and her group kidnap Attrebus, they make it look like the Natives attacked and killed his guard.

The Organism

The ruling council of Lilmoth, currently run by the An-Xileel.

Penitus Oculatus

The secret service of the Empire.


Skraws are a class of workers on Umbriel that attend and maintain the Sump. Within the sump they gather food items as well as attending to the "people" growing there, recognizing when a sac needs to be taken to a birthing pool. The vapors which they inhale in order to stay underwater for extended periods can be harmful.


One of the two factions into which the Mages Guild has split, the other being the College of Whispers.


Also known as the Drykillers. The only non-Argonian guard unit in Lilmoth.

When Umbriel, floating city, first appears in Tamriel, it is witnessed by three sailors, Iffech, Keem, and Grayne. This is also shown to Sul by Azura in a dream. Another sailor, Ixtah-Nasha, relays stories of the floating city to his cousin, Mere-Glim, who in turn relates them to Annaïg Hoïnart.

Glim "rescues" Annaïg from her father Taig's attempt to forcibly send her to Leyawiin away from Umbriel, only to himself be inexplicably drawn to Umbriel. To avoid being drawn with him to the land under Umbriel, where she sees the city forces killing Lilmoth's residents, she uses a flying potion on them both and, unable to pull Glim away from the floating island, guides them onto Umbriel itself.

Umbriel is powered by a new version of the Ingenium. Vuhon, the creator of the ingenium, reveals that he used the device to twist a piece of Oblivion from Clavicus Vile's realm, setting it into flight and rendering moot the barrier erected to prevent his and Umbra's escape. The people killed below Umbriel are used to power the ingenium, to sustain the floating city and thereby satisfy a pact made with Umbra.

Bolster Midden

The Bolster Midden is the midden with the "richest scent" of the four Lower Middens; one of the places where the refuse of Umbriel is sent. It is the first named location Annaïg and Glim find.

Fringe Gyre

A region on a cliff on the outside of Umbriel. It is filled with trees that seem to be related to The Hist, including one especially tall one. The trees produce what Umbriel needs, such as different types of fruit. Tree-tenders take care of the trees and harvest these plants. Mere-Glim discovers the Fringe Gyre through a tunnel from the Sump and meets Fhena there.

Ghol Manor

Ghol Manor is one of the regions of Umbriel, served by Qijne's kitchen. Lord Ghol dislikes boring food.


The Kitchens (called "vehrumasas" in the language used on Umbriel) are where food is made for the lords and ladies of Umbriel. The lower kitchens make food for the minor lords, who have more earthly palates, while the upper kitchens work for higher lords, who require food made of spiritual essences. Qijne's kitchen, which is one of the lower part, mainly has walls lined with ovens, with the center of the room containing pits of hot stone, counters and cabinets, and cages and baskets hanging from chains from the ceiling. One end has tables for more delicate work. Toel's kitchen, by contrast, only has one pit and oven, and is mostly dedicated to preparing soul essences - both for the lords of Umbriel and for the trees of the Fringe Gyre.

Lower Middens

The Lower Middens are essentially a gigantic trash room, where the refuse from the kitchens that doesn't wind up in the sump goes and is eaten and digested by worms, likely before being used for some other function.

Oroy Mansion

Oroy Mansion is one of the regions of Umbriel, served by Qijne's kitchen. In contrast to Prixon Palace, the residents like burnt food.

Prixon Palace

Prixon Palace is one of the regions of Umbriel, served by Qijne's kitchen. Slyr tells Annaïg that they don't like their food burnt.


The Sump is where life on Umbriel starts and ends: souls are processed; people are born; dead bodies are sent here; plants grow and are harvested. It is also where Mere-Glim was sent to work because of his ability to breathe underwater. The workers of the Sump, who help new people be born and who collect food for the kitchens, are known as skraws. The watery sump is home to various creatures who are hostile to newcomers of the Sump, but they grow used to them. The conduit of the Ingenium resides at the bottom of the sump in an area called the Drop.

Toel's Private Quarters

Toel's quarters are richly furnished and the walls are draped in fabric. There is a balcony with an excellent view of Umbriel: it overlooks a basin with a lake, and much of the city itself: buildings jutting from the rock and hanging from cables, towers on the rim of the island.


  • Umbriel is mentioned, although not by name, by Ysolda in Skyrim when asked about the Sleeping Tree - one theory she's heard as to its origins is that it came from a seed that fell from a floating island.
