The Mantellan Crux is a small, self-contained plane located in Aetherius. Its name is derived from the Mantella, a large soul gem once used to power Numidium. The plane served as the resting place and prison of the Mantella after it was blasted from Mundus at the dawn of the Third Era by Zurin Arctus. The Mantella and the plane were rediscovered in 3E 401 by Nulfaga the sorceress, Queen Mother of Daggerfall, in her astral travels. This precipitated a series of events that led to the recovery of the Mantella in 3E 417 by an unknown Agent of the Blades, and culminated in the phenomenon known as the Warp in the West.
The Mantellan Crux was designed as a giant puzzle to test those who would seek the heart of Numidium, and was inhabited by fearsome Daedra and undead. The Blind God, a giant skull, dwells here. The Daedric Prince Sheogorath has also been known to visit the plane.
