Throughout history there have been a number of heroes among men, who have risen to champion the cause of men. The names of these heroes are known to men across Tamriel, as saviors and defenders. These, many believe, are the avatars of Lorkhan, sent by Lorkhan to shepherd in times of great need. Alternately, one might choose to believe that they are not sent by Lorkhan, but rather are incarnations of Lorkhan. These are the Shezarrines.
