So after playing a long time in Skyrim, adventuring, fighting, and learning the lore, I've found myself asking a very interesting question... Is Sovngarde the only plane of existence in the afterlife? (With it being slightly different depending on the race.) I ask this question because of one particular character in the game. The Ebony Warrior. The reason he makes me ask is because he is a redguard who, based on redguard mythos, is a demigod of battle. According to some lore, there is a redguard demigod who lives for battle. One of his arms is a blade of ebony, and he stands much taller than normal humans. There isn't a whole lot of relevant information on this demigod (for this post). Although from there is, we can guess that these two chracters are one in the same. While the Ebony Warrior's arm isn't a sword by itself, it could be viewed as the old, "your blade is an extension of yourself," line. If all of this is the case, why then does this warrior want you to send him to Sovngarde? To fight the probably already slain Alduin? To challenge the ancient nord heroes of old? Or maybe because there's nowhere else to go? Granted, there are also the planes of Oblivion, but you specifically have to enter certain contracts with the owners of those planes. If one in Tamriel never makes any contract with a daedric prince, or other worldy being, is Sovngarde the only place that awaits them in the afterlife?
