Why Jyggalag doesn’t appear in Skyrim

Skyrim’s Jyggalag is not in Skyrim despite having his full-time Daedric Status. Jyggalag, the Prince of Order, is the only Daedric Prince that doesn’t care about the Mortal Realm. He is a master of organizing and planning for any plan that he has, including spreading Order to the chaos realm of Mundus. He doesn’t need mortals, so why would he seek the assistance of a Dragonborn champion? He doesn’t need worshipers, so he has no worshipers. He doesn’t use artefacts, so he has no.

While the other princes view mortals as playthings and toys, Jyggalag isn’t interested in keeping toys or playing with them. He is determined to create Order. So he will likely take his time during Skyrim’s events to ensure that EVERY DETAIL of his plan has been put in place before he launches it. It could be the plot for TES: VI, as many have speculated. It is also worth noting that he probably rooted for Alduin in the Battle of Sovengard. You can’t have more Order if the whole world is destroyed. It is much easier to arrange things in a neat and orderly fashion if they are dead.

Greymarch (Ties with Sheogorath)

Jyggalag, at one point, was one of the most powerful Daedric Princes. He was so powerful that other Princes started to fear him. Some believed he was the only Prince who understood his true purpose. They cursed him to live against everything he stood up for, to be a madman, and to bring chaos and insanity to the place of Order and logic. Jyggalag was then known as Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of Madness.

Jyggalag can return to his original form at the end of each era. This event is known as the Greymarch in the Shivering Islands. Jyggalag’s personality is rediscovered during this period. He uses his control over “his realm” to summon the Knights of Order, his emotionless, vicious minions, to attack and destroy everything in the Isles. Jyggalag arrives in person to end the Greymarch as Sheogorath “leaves the Isles” at the end. Sheogorath transforms into Jyggalag in reality. Sheogorath “returns” to rebuild the Isles and its inhabitants, which causes both identities to suffer.

The Champion of Cyrodiil’s Apotheosis

The Greymarch was reopened after the death of Uriel September VII. However, Sheogorath sent an “invitation” to Mundus, this time in the form of a strange door. The Hero of Kvatch met Sheogorath and was made his Champion. The Champion’s actions thwarted Jyggalag. Jyggalag had to face the Champion one on one and was defeated. Jyggalag was released from his curse by his defeat. Jyggalag was once again free to roam Oblivion in the true form of his character and told the Champion his story before he left.

Jyggalag, the main antagonist of the Shivering Islands expansion, is also the Daedric Princess of Order. He is a symbol of logical Order and deduction. He has taken into account every detail of the world and every action that has occurred on Mundus and Oblivion long before they occur. He believes in certainty, determinism and the illusion of individuality. He is the only Prince not to have a known corresponding artefact (excluding the Sword of Jyggalag). Jyggalag is only in The Elder Scrolls IV, Shivering Isles.

Jyggalag is the Prince of Order. He is a Daedric Prince. His sphere represents logic, Order and deduction. His great library once contained a logical forecast of every detail of the world and every action that would take place on Mundus and Oblivion long before they ever happened. The Prince was almost unknown in Tamriel until the Third Era. He had been cursed in antiquity to become Sheogorath, the Prince of Madness. Jyggalag and Sheogorath are now distinct Daedric Princes, but they still have a connection through other means.

According to legend, the Daedra fear Order and wisdom. Because of his similarity to Jyggalag’s principles, they fear Sotha Sil more than any other. Apostles of Sotha Sil observed that only the Gray Prince of Order knew his nature and was a madman in this knowledge among all the Daedra.

Jyggalag is the commander of his Daedra, The Knights of Order. These Daedra are spawned using obelisks summoned to him by his followers, The Priests of Order. He is seen as cold, bleak, and lacking in originality.

Mythology (The Curse of Madness)

Jyggalag created a realm of perfect Order in a time before recorded history. The other Daedric Princes were jealous and afraid of him. They cursed him to be Sheogorath, which is the embodiment of madness–the essence and essence of chaos. However, he was allowed to return to his true self at the end of each era to take back the Shivering Islands from his mad alter-ego, the Greymarch. Jyggalag then transforms into Sheogorath and begins the cycle all over again once a Greymarch has been completed.

Haskill, Sheogorath’s chamberlain, claims to be a mortal relic who managed the Madgod during a past event. It is not clear what exactly transpired, as Sheogorath seems to be reluctant to discuss the matter. However, Haskill claims that the pair “go back in time”, and the incident involved Jyggalag.

Chamberlain Dyus (Dyus and Jyggalag)

The Prince of Order decided that someone needed to manage his realm’s mundane affairs. Days of Mytheria was appointed as Jyggalag’s chamberlain and the keeper and keeper of the Great Library.

Sheogorath, upon taking control of the realm, extinguished or killed all aspects of Order remaining in the Shivering Islands, except Dyus. Because the Madgod believed that “personal decision defied logic prediction”, the Great Library was set ablaze. He allowed Dyus to stay, as he wasn’t willing to lose the chamberlain’s knowledge. Dyus was forbidden to die and kept in the library’s remnants forever.

The Sword of Jyggalag

The Sword of Jyggalag is a Daedric artefact produced by Jyggalag, the Daedric Prince of Order. It takes the form of a giant claymore of absolute symmetry, made of a silver crystalline substance similar to the longswords handled by the Knights of Order. It has been associated with the Staff of Sheogorath. However, it is unknown if the sword holds as much symbolic power. It has a novel enchantment that supports those that gaze upon its edge to see the past, present, and future flow as one.
