Nereids are mer-like, feminine water creatures that can often be heard singing. They are able to use several water spells as attacks.
Netch are large and generally peaceful creatures that resemble airborne jellyfish with the size and disposition of cattle, floating through the air supported by internal sacks of magical gases. Although male ("Bull") netch are larger than the female ("Betty"), and sometimes possess the ability to poison their opponents, the latter can be provoked into aggression more easily. They are usually peaceful but can be defensive of their territory, particularly during breeding season. Netch are often domesticated in Morrowind, mainly due to their hides making good quality leather, although the skin contains a toxin that renders the meat inedible. While feral Betties usually keep a harem of several Bulls, herders often keep the female-male ratio low for faster breeding. Some wild families appeared in Solstheim in the Fourth Era, perhaps drawn by the familiar flora that had grown up in the southern ashlands following the Red Year.
- Variations: Betty Netch, Bull Netch, Netch Calf
The Nightmare Courser is a Daedra that takes the form of a black, flame-wreathed horse. Many conflicting legends surround its mysterious origins, although it is associated with Mehrunes Dagon. It is sometimes used by mortals as a mount, although its chaotic temperament makes this a difficult task. Although superficially similar in appearance, the Courser bears no relation to the Hell Hound.

Numidium, or Anumidum, also known as the Brass God, the Brass Tower, and Walk-Brass, was a gigantic golem of Dwemer origin. Constructed by Tonal Architect Lord Kagrenac, Numidium was directly related to the disappearance of the Dwemer, and since then has been resurrected several times.
By the end of the Second Era, the Morrowind Tribunal had possession of Numidium. As a part of the Armistice with the Empire, the Tribunal gave Tiber Septim the golem. Numidium was first reactivated by Tiber based on Zurin Arctus' Dwemer research. Reactivating Numidium required a replacement heart, for which the Mantella was used, a soul gem that mimicked the properties of Lorkhan's Heart when filled with the soul of a Shezarrine. The golem was controlled by a Totem that can only be wielded by those of royal blood or great power.
A beautiful creature, but not without its danger. Nymphs require silver or better weapons to be harmed, have some inherent magical abilities, and drain their opponents' fatigue in addition to health. Nymphs have their own melodious tongue, which sounds similar to Ayleidoon and faerie but shares none of the vocabulary.
