Jiub is a character in the The Elder Scrolls series that first appeared at the beginning of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. He is a fellow slave aboard the same ship as the Nerevarine, Morrowind's protagonist. The characters part ways after the player names their character (to answer Jiub's question), and Jiub is not seen again for the rest of the game. However, because he is seen in every single playthrough by necessity, Jiub became surprisingly popular amongst fans, who loved to ask the developers what had happened to Jiub. As a result, in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, it is revealed that Jiub had been declared a saint by the Tribunal Temple for his exploits in driving the cliff racer population out of Morrowind; cliff racers being the single most loathed enemy in all of Morrowind among players. He is not encountered during the events of Oblivion, but it is revealed that he was in Kvatch when the Oblivion Gate opened, and he was subsequently killed. Thereafter, his soul resided in the Soul Cairn until being freed by the player. In the Dawnguard expansion of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the player can make contact with Jiub's spirit, who will request that the Dovahkiin locate the scattered pages of his autobiography's second volume.
