The Aedroth Aka, who goes by so many names as to perhaps already suggest what I'm about to commit to memospore, is completely insane. His mind broke when his "perch from Eternity allowed the day" and we of all the Aurbis live on through its fragments, ensnared in the temporal writings and erasures of the acausal whim that he begat by saying "I AM".
|~ et'Ada, Eight Aedra, Eat the Dreamer|
Aka is the Dragon God of Time and the King of the Et'Ada. He is the Soul of Anui-El and the opposite counterpart to the Missing God of Change, Lorkhan, the Soul of Sithis. Their simultaneous birth gave shape to the primordial chaos, and was what allowed the Et'Ada to crystallize and erupt from ineffability into being. So that order could be brought into the cacophony that was Existence, Aka mutilated himself, shattering his spirit into countless fragments and "bleeding" into the Aurbis as the concept of Time which he now embodied. As a result of this sacrifice, Aka's became divided into various shards of itself, making it so that his spirit was no longer that of a unitary Et'Ada, but of a multitude of aspects. Henceforth and forever after, Aka was also known as the Cyrodilic Akatosh, also known as the Altmeri Auri-El, also known as the Khajiiti Alkosh, also known as the Nordic Alduin, and also known as countless other names.
Much like his mirror-brother Lorkhan, Aka too came to the realization that Existence was nothing but the Dream of an uncaring Godhead and that he, like all other souls, was trapped within a Prison of endless suffering. However, unlike Lorkhan, who through the creation of the Mortal Plane attempted to find a way for the spirits to transcend all boundaries and bring an end to the Dream, Aka denied the truth of his discovery and sought to propagate the Dream he was locked within. Motivated by a fear of his condition as a nonexistent idea within the mind of God, Aka egotistically proclaimed his own individuality, affirming himself as an existent being despite his own undeniable epiphany. In doing so, Aka's mind broke, driving him completely mad and in the process inadvertently trapping all souls within the self-fulfilling cyclical flow of Time.
When Aka (Now in his fragmented aspect of Auri-El) was made aware of Lorkhan's true intentions in creating the Mundus, he called all of the Et'Ada to a Convention outside Aurbic Time wherein they would determine Lorkhan's punishment and the Laws that would henceforth govern the mortal plane. To do so, Auri-El cast his vessel down from the heavens, having it fall to earth as a spike that would bind the whole of Mundus to the Laws of Convention. This was the creation of Ada-Mantia, the Ur-Tower and the focal point of the Aurbis. With the Laws of Convention firmly set in Stone and Lorkhan's execution rightly delivered, Auri-El (Or Akatosh) established himself as the King of the Gods, ruling from Heaven over both mortals and immortals through his unbreakable, Adamantine laws. Chief amongst these was the concept of Linear Time, which forces mortal existence to progress ever-forward from past to future with no chance of alteration, and the Kalpic Cycle, which binds Nirn to a never-ending cycle of Life & Death, with the world itself being destroyed and remade at the end of every Kalpa.

Attack Potency: High Hyperverse level (The Avatar of Akatosh easily destroyed the complete form of the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon, reducing him to ash with its fire, and immediately afterwards reforged the barriers between Mundus and Oblivion, separating the two realms and rendering the boundaries that split them stronger than ever) | High Hyperverse level (Created and embodies the concept of Time, which stabilized the entire Aurbis from the primordial Chaos and permeates as the blood that flows through the whole of existence. Afterwards, his aspects were likely among the Ada who assisted in shaping the Aurbis from its unformed energies, forming the anuic realm of Aetherius) | Outerverse level, possibly Outerverse level+ (In their Original State, the Et'Ada were Boundless, Eternal and Infinite Spirits who existed wholly independently of duality, predating the concepts of Time and Space, and living in pure harmony, having practically no personalities or boundaries that separated themselves from anything else, inhabiting the Aurbis in its original Zero-State of pure Infinite possibility, where everything that can and cannot happen is always happening all at once, forever, regardless of contradictions. As the direct manifestation of Anui-El, Aka is considerably more powerful than the other Original Spirits, and comparable to his mirror-brother Lorkhan)

Held a convention outside and beyond Aurbic Time along the remaining Et'Ada) | Outerversal
