It was the dawning of a new age in Cyrodiil without an Emperor. A small sense of disunity resulted amongst the provinces and Chancellor Ocato, along with the Elder council, struggled to keep the cities calm. The citizens, going so long without an heir to the throne, became alarmed and withdrew into a state of panic. One heroic sacrifice had caused such an ironic reaction.
Martin Septim, the last of the royal blood-line, had given up his life along with the Amulet of Kings to bind together with the Spirit of Akatosh. In succeeding, he had re-lit the dragon-fires and stopped Mehrunes Dagon from destroying the lands of Tamriel.
However, the only flicker of hope for the future he had left was with the Champion of Cyrodiil, Sirai Allesia, a female Khajiit.
Unknowingly to the nations, destiny would soon take its course.
