The Elder Scrolls
Wispmothers are magical energy beings found in the wilds of Skyrim. These spirit women appear to be either a higher form of Wisp, or creators of them. Able to teleport and restore their health, Wispmothers can also summon multiple shades, which are weak clones of themselves. Killing a Wispmother causes all of its attendant Wisps and Shades to die.
Many legends and theories exist which seek to explain the true nature of the Wispmother. Locals variously believe them to be remnants of the ancient Falmer, ghosts or natives of Hjaalmarch. Master Sadren Sarethi proposed that they are a forgotten type of Lich from the First Era. Lydette Viliane of the Synod proposed that they are elemental personifications of snow or mist.
