The Elder Scrolls
These crocodile-headed bipedal Daedra are associated with Molag Bal and Mehrunes Dagon. They are one of the weaker, more animalistic types of Daedra, but still a dangerous foe with powerful clawed arms and moderate magical ability. Though some have been known to use weapons and wear simple armor, most attack with bare claws. Those found in Morrowind are man-sized and spit poison or shock magic, while those found in Cyrodiil tend to be larger and belch firebolts instead. These larger Daedroths initiate battle by shaking themselves, invoking a protective shield. They are similar in appearance to the Lesser Daedra.
Linguists will point out that “Daedroth” is also the proper singular form of “Daedra”, but for these creatures the common usage is Daedroth (singular) and Daedroths (plural), with Daedra (both singular and plural) being used as the generic term. It is unknown if Daedroth have a more proper, specific name.
