    Which, fittingly, brings us back to the stars. The pure Anuic blood would be the Magna-Ge, the very constellations or patterns of magicka they fled in (that's a Teineeva thing to flesh out at some stage).

    Regardless, the Shezarrine, like Lorkhan, is the Prisoner inside the Tower. The Thief takes the Tower, but it's the Prisoner with the freedom to move within it. When we look at the main character in the last four TES games, it is no coincidence that we as the player start out as Prisoners. Things get meta-game very quickly thereon out.

    This always made me wonder. The theory about Nerevarine being Shezzarine. I do quite like the idea, but little bit differently. Nerevarine is mantling Nerevar, not Lorkhan, but what if Nerevar was Shezzarine and Nerevarine is mantling that? Just a though.

    But what makes me wonder. Can there be two Shezzarines at the same time? Like, we can definitely say that Champion was Shezzarine. But if Nerevarine was also that then we have two Shezzarine at the same time. Cause Nerevarine is immortal and in Akavir - presumably.

    I love how we're all hedging our bets and ensuring we use "interpretation" in each answer.

    I would think, or my interpretation - guessing alone mind you, that the Dunmer hold Padomaic spirits (Daedra) in high regard - even Lorkhan himself. You remember that prayer Vivec says to his mother invoking Padomay? So maybe, even though the Nerevarine mantles Nerevar, as Nerevar was the champion of a Daedrc Prince, there is that Padomaic/Lorkhan thing regardles.
