Herman Melville is a massive glob of floating tentacles that talks very slow and is credited for writing many books.
Alternatively, Herman Melville, also known as Hermaeus Mora, is a Daedric Prince of knowledge and a really shitty author. He wrote most of the books in Skyrim, and is really fucking boring and talks super fucking slow, like slower than a Nord on Skooma. He fucking sucks.
Note: The events are in chronological order.
Herman Melville appears in front of CockEdit
Cock Nibbler visits Septimus Signus who is transcribing the lexicon. After learning that he has to collect some elf blood and get up to leave, a wretched abyss blocks the doorway. Having an option to talk to this abyss, Cock talks to it. The wretched abyss says it's Herman Melville and it wants Cock to serve him. Cock just thinks it's just dirt that needs to get scrubbed and refuses to serve him.
After collecting the all of the elf bloods, Cock returns to Septimus Signus's outpost. Septimus drinks the blood and opens a chamber holding a book called the Oghma Infinium. Septimus enters the chamber makes a quick comment about the book and is turned into ashes. Cock, not very interested in the book, picks it up as a souvenir and turns to leave, but he finds Herman Melville blocking the door again.
