Elemental Daedra, commonly known as Atronachs, are highly intelligent daedra often summoned by conjurers. They have no kinship or loyalties with any of the Daedric Princes, although the Frost Daedra are known to have served Xivilai Moath, as have the Fire Daedra served Faydra Shardai. Frost Daedra and Fire Daedra have a deep mutual hatred for one another, but were forced to work together to claim the Shade Perilous for Mehrunes Dagon during the invasion of the Battlespire. A more powerful version of the Atronach is the Monarch. Only one Monarch is recorded in history, a Frost Monarch whose soul was used to create the legendary Ice Blade of the Monarch.
There are several varieties of Elemental Daedra, including:
- Fire Daedra
- Flame Atronach, Potent Flame Atronach, Flame Thrall
- Frost Atronach, Dire Frost Atronach, Potent Frost Atronach, Frost Thrall, Ancient Frost Atronach
- Frost Daedra
- Storm Atronach, Potent Storm Atronach, Storm Thrall
