It is most probable that “daimon” is a misspelling or etymological rendition of “Daedra,” the old Elven word for those strange, powerful creatures of uncertain motivation who hail from the dimension of Oblivion. (“Daedra” is actually the plural form; the singular is “Daedroth.”) In a later tract by King Hale the Pious of Skyrim, almost a thousand years after the publication of the original Doctrines, the evil machinations of his political enemies are compared to “the wickedness of the demons of Oblivion… their depravity equals that of Sanguine itself, they are cruel as Boethiah, calculating as Molag Bal, and mad as Sheogorath.” Hale the Pious thus long-windedly introduced four of the Daedra lords to written record.
