Golden Saints, also known as Aureals, are Daedra that serve as protectors of the Mania region of the Shivering Isles.

They appear in the Shivering Isles, as well as in Morrowind, as both summonable creatures and as Daedra that appear in Daedric shrines (depending on the level of the character). It is possible to obtain the help of the Saints in order to light the Flame of Agnon.


Golden Saints tend to be very haughty, severe and short tempered, especially towards the Hero and Dark Seducers, their rivals, with whom they are often locked in battle, in order to gain the praise of Lord Sheogorath.

They refer to themselves as Aureals. A large majority of their ranks are female, greatly outnumbering male members, and they tend to have golden colored skin and hair. They represent the forces of order (authority) of the Mania side of the Shivering Isles.

Weapons and armor

The Golden Saints carry various weaponry, including maces, war axes, shortswords, longswords and bows with golden arrows. They carry a Golden Saint shield.

If the Hero chooses to become Duke of Dementia, and thus aids the Aureals in Brellach during the quest The Helpless Army, the hero will receive a set of Golden Saint armor.
