"Auriel's Shield, an Ebony shield said to have once belonged to the quasi-mythical, Elvish deity Auriel, can make its wielder nigh invulnerable. In its resistance to fire and magicka, Auriel's Shield is unsurpassed. To defend its wielder from any attacks it cannot absorb, the Shield lends him or her health. Like many artifacts of Tamriel, the Shield has life and personality of its own, and does not feel bound to its user. A popular fable tells the tale of it abandoning one wielder in her greatest hour of need, but this is perhaps, apocryphal." ―The Elder Scrolls: Arena
