J'ai fait un commentaire des trois textes publiés jusqu'à maintenant, notant par exemple les très nombreuses références. J'ai dû en oublier certaines.
Par contre, je n'ai pas commenté l'hypertexte. C'est trop "bizarre" et assez difficile à traduire, je trouve.
The recently reorganized Celediion Union (formerly known by the titles Cyrod-2, Nucyrod, the Cuhlecain Confederacy, the Acturian Insurgency, Cyrbal, and Province Zero in the past) is a hidden magnegineered city-region that lies situated in the 'then and where' of the Imperial Reserve (although rumor has it that it had once been nestled in the Jerall Mountains, but was relocated after the forceful eruption of Trolhetta by Arnand the Fox in 3E 98). Although the nation has traditionally been at war with the entirety of Cyrod since its creation, it has recently received the power and respect it deserves when the Heir Apparent Titus Mede captured his birthright and became the Emperor of Tamri-El in the 11th year of the current era, and was finally formalized into a proper province via the Veto of Charter and Decree of New Lordships the following month.

Un an avant la mort de Pélagius Septim II
Le premier du nom, fondateur du Quatrième Empire de Cyrodiil. Son symbole est une tête de loup, portée comme tatouage par son entourage.
The history of the Celediilon Union begins with the death of Cuhlecain Sifr, King of Falk'reth and the Father of the True Empire, in 2E 854 - a time ripe with 'Imperial' conspiracy and blasphemy. Cuhlecain, even as an infant, was destined for both greatness and betrayal. His father, King Cuhlecain Quintus, was an avid worshipper and the self-proclaimed (by divine right) Champion of Ebonarm, his city's patron deity. His mother, Queen Cassandra, was a descendent of Sai, and had been born with the gift of prophecy. After she gave birth to her son on the 9th of Mid Year in 2E 798 she recited to her husband, in whispered pain: "this child is sun-blessed, dragon-born, and heart-cursed. He is an ender of conflict and his heart is the wellspring of dynasties. But as kissed as he is so is he dead, red-marked and doomed, as the ruby that follows him shall ultimately consume him, for serpents always gnaw the stars. Blood runs crimson down the sapphires face; shatter and mend it to keep it safe." And with those words her soul passed to the sweetness of Aetherius, leaving behind her grieving husband and a babe with a the weight of the land around his shoulders in his arms. As the prince aged in the bloody rule of the Interregnum he began to despise the wickedness of his people and their province, and resigned at a young age he would forge a new empire worthy of Heaven...even with Quintus struggling to subdue his ambition.

the reacquisition of Falk'reth by Whiterune once he was crowned Emperor
When Cuhlecain ascended the throne after his father's death in 2E 848 he had already undertaken several endeavors that would ensure his conquest of the Heartlands would be successful (one of these - the reacquisition of Falk'reth by Whiterun once he was crowned Emperor - weighed heavily on his heart and caused his loyal and noble advisors great unrest). However, his biggest decision - and greatest mistake - was the admittance of Hjalti Early-Beard (the manmeri demon who would one day become the great liar Tiber Septim) into his service. The Breton freelancer had been the first to hear of Sifr's cry for a talented warrior to lead his army, and was the last to arrive in Colovia among the fifty men and women who came - his armor blackened with soot from the Alcairen Riots and his sword rusted from the men he had slain. As per Falk'rethean tradition, Cuhlecain made the candidates fight one another for the honor to be named his general...and was shocked when Early-Beard not only defeated, but executed, each and every one of them in quick succession. When Sifr looked into the young orphan's eyes he saw a fire that both enticed and frightened him - he knew that this Breton would go on to do great and terrible things - and discussed with his advisors what he should do about him. Concerned with this strange mongrel, who fitted the description of Lady Cassandra's prophecy of old, the majority of Cuhlecain's councilors wished to either send Hjalti away - or kill him. But Chevalier Renald, the King's dragonknight man-at-arms, saw potential in the manmer and persuaded Cuhlecain to accept him as his general, agreeing to watch over him closely lest he be executed himself. The King relented, and in the next few years the entirety of the Colovian Estates were consolidated under his rule thanks to the brutal yet cunning tactics of his new general and man-at-arms.

Chevalier Renald, the King's dragonknight man-at-arms
est déjà en train de conseiller Cuhlecain quand Hjalti arrive à Falkreath. Son but est toutefois de se rapprocher de Talos. « Dragonknight » est le nom de la classe inspirée des gardes-dragons dans TESO.
Striving to gain the approval of both Skyrim and Altbal so he could have additional support in his eminent invasion of the Eastern Heatlands, Cuhlecain sent his true most trusted warriors to aid in the removal of the Witchmen from the Western Reach in 2E 852. It was during this long trek to Old Hroldan that Hjalti came under the influence of the ash-demon from the Underworld that called itself the Underking, who planted seeds of treason and greed in the Breton's heart. Manifesting itself in the form of a storm that covered the general, the Underking taught Hjalti blasphemous tongue magicks that he used to break down the walls of the city, allowing his forces to win a decisive victory. Renald was killed (or murdered by his charge, as some historians say) during the battle, but the King gained a new advisor in the form of Zurin Arctus, a young Nibenese battlemage that the Witchmen had been forcing to aid them before he was rescued by General 'Talos Stormcrown' (as the northern men in Cuhlecain's army had taken to calling him, due to their unholy comparison of his demon-tongue with their much revered Voice). Cuhlecain's advisors were highly suspicious of this Arctus, for his name was nonexistent in every official battlemage document in their possession, and believed he was an agent of Hjalti, as the two behaved like old friends. Sifr was too worried about this situation, but his mind was more focused on his campaign than anything else. in order to pacify and secure an alliance with the Witchmen he married Medea, the daughter of the most dominant Reach tribe, three months after the battle and the two grew to love each other dearly.

Encore un mystère entourant Zurin. En même temps, Zurin Arctus est sans donc son surnom Nibénien alors qu'il est Tsaesci.
in order to pacify and secure an alliance with the Witchmen he married Medea, the daughter of the most dominant Reach tribe
Medea, donc ancêtre des Mede. Vu son rang dans la société des Hommes-sorcières, elle est sans doute une descendante des empereurs des longères
, les empereurs Crevassais de l'Interrègne (ceux de TESO).
In truth, however, Zurin and the Underking planned to use the ancient artifact for a much darker purpose
But as the day must give birth to the night, it wasn’t long before Hjalti and Zurin began to plot against their king due to the dark machinations of the Underking. General Early-Beard wished to wrest Sancre Tor from its Nord and Breton occupiers in order to secure the Amulet of Kings for Cuhlecain, which would prove he was indeed worthy of being Emperor of Tamri-El. In truth, however, Zurin and the Underking planned to use the ancient artifact for a much darker purpose – they needed it for a dark ritual that would allow them to steal Cuhlecain’s divine soul and blood, given to him by Great Akatosh at birth, and merge it with the soul and blood of Hjalti, which allow the traitor to light the Dragonfires and become Emperor instead (why the Underking wished to do this is unknown, although some believe it was start a great war with the elves, as Hjalti agreed with his plan of extermination while Cuhlecain’s admiration for all the races of the Starry Heart and beyond was well-known). Oblivious to their plans, Sifr allowed them to retrieve the amulet and had them bring it to him. But the Falk’reth King had his own hidden agenda, as he had heard from his most loyal agents that the general and his battlemage accomplice had been sneaking off from the war camp at night for several days now in order to converse with a ‘voice in the wind.’ Queen Medea, concerned with her husband’s safety, created for him an enchanted sapphire that would protect him from even the most powerful arcane arts. And for the next year, Cuhlecain breathed easy at night as men won battle after battle in his name…but his time was coming to an end.
Le plan des conspirateurs me rappelle celui de Mannimarco dans TESO.
steal Cuhlecain’s divine soul and blood, given to him by Great Akatosh at birth, and merge it with the soul and blood of Hjalti
Dans cette réalité, Hjalti n'est pas un Enfant de Dragon.
while Cuhlecain’s admiration for all the races of the Starry Heart and beyond was well-known
Cuhlecain est pour un Empire cosmopolite, contrairement aux conspirateurs.
began to battle the Emperor and his Council
The Eastern Heartlands was finally conquered in the early months of 2E 854, after Cuhlecain personally led his army on an assault on the Imperial City itself and defeated the enemy battlemages stationed there. With his queen, royal advisors, General Hjalti, and Zurin Arctus watching on, the Falk’reth King sat upon the Ruby Throne and claimed his birthright, becoming Emperor of Cyrodiil. Sifr planned on lighting the Dragonfires the following day to prove the legitimacy of his reign (for he was indeed the Dragonborn Emperor whose return the legends spoke of), and retired to the War Room with his councilors to plan their campaigns for the foreign lands. But it was then that Hjalti’s plan sprang it motion. With the Underking cloaking him in a storm once more, the general and his battlemage accomplice slaughtered the bodyguards outside the War Room and began to battle the Emperor and his Council. Although Cuhlecain and his advisors fought hard and bravely, they proved no match for the immortal Underking and his demon-tongue, and soon the Emperor found himself on his knees before his former subjects. Zurin initiated the ritual, and Cuhlecain’s soul and blood was painfully forced from his body…but then the unexpected happened. Medea’s Sapphire began to protect Sifr from the ritual, and although it proved no match for the hellish powers of the Underking, it changed the nature of the ritual and the fate of Tamri-El in an instant; the dragon blood was absorbed by Hjalti, but Cuhlecain’s soul was absorbed into the sapphire and tried as they might they could not release it.
La Trahison. Ici, les conspirateurs éliminent également ce qui pourrait être le Conseil des Anciens.
the dragon blood was absorbed by Hjalti, but Cuhlecain’s soul was absorbed into the sapphire and tried as they might they could not release it
Hjalti devient un Sang de Dragon, mais pas un Enfant de Dragon. Il ne pourra donc pas, dans cette réalité, absorber les âmes des dragons de Tamriel
pour devenir un dieu. L'âme de Cuhlecain va dans le Saphir.
Enraged to the point of madness, Hjalti set fire to the Imperial Palace and had Zurin slice his throat to explain his ‘loss of the Voice’ to his northern troops (as he had his own, dark plans for the Underking and wanted to be his mouthpiece no longer). Walking before his army with the Chim-el Adabal in his left hand and cradling his bleeding throat with his right, the liar explained in a whisper that Altbal assassins had claimed the life of Cuhlecain and Medea, which made him the new Emperor of Cyrodiil (as Sifr had no children to inherit his empire). That day he also changed his name to Tiber Septim, but no one truly knows if he did this to either better assimilate with his new adopted people or to better expunge him of investigations by the suspicious. Later on, before he started the infamous “Tiber Wars”, Hjalti started the Cult of the Emperor Zero in honor of Cuhlecain, which preaches that the Divines came down from heaven and carried the emperor’s body to Aetherius for his role in Tiber’s ascension. But this is just another lie to cover his mistakes, for after the fire was put out the False Dragonborn and his battlemage returned to the War Room to gloat over Cuhlecain’s body…but he could not find. Queen Medea – blessed be her name now and forever – and her bodyguards had taken it away in secret, back to Colovia where it belonged. Sifr was locked away in a magical coma that he would not awaken from, frozen in a state between life and death, no blood or soul in his body to pull him back from the brink.
Ce passage correspond à peu près à ce que dit le PGE1.
he started the infamous “Tiber Wars”
L'Union Celediilon voit d'un mauvais œil les Tiber Wars, comme Zurin Arctus dans l'histoire officielle.
the Divines came down from heaven and carried the emperor's body to Aetherius
L'histoire de cette déification est assez similaire à celle connue pour Talos.

Medea, who had lost all hope for her husband's recovery, was visited under the cloak of night by the storm that would birth her new nation
It was years later when Medea, who had lost all hope for her husband's recovery, was visited under the cloak of night by the storm that would birth her new nation.
“I was the greatest enemy of your husband, and I have made a grave mistake. For as I betrayed him my charge betrayed me, and now I am once again without form and now I am without heart,” the Underking said. “But I am still powerful beyond any mortal, and although I cannot heal the True Dragonborn or give him back his blood or soul, I can help you give birth to another. For he and Hjalti are one now, two sides of the same coin, and new bodies are always born with new souls.”
L'Underking vient la trouver et fonder sa nouvelle nation. Cette nation peut désigner l'Union Celediilon ou encore la dynastie Mede.
Il raconte qu'il a été trahi par Hjalti et qu'il a perdu son cœur, son âme en fait emprisonnée dans le Mantella.
although I cannot heal the True Dragonborn or give him back his blood or soul, I can help you give birth to another
Il ne peut guérir Cuhlecain, mais il peut aider Medea à donner naissance à un autre (Cuhlecain ? sang ? âme ?). Ça ressemble à Hrol, seeker/healer of the Kingdom
, qui ne parvient à reformer l'Empire mais lui donne son nouvel empereur.
he and Hjalti are one now, two sides of the same coin
Exactement comme sur un septim
(Hjalti a pris ce nom après avoir pris le sang de Cuhlecain), avec une face Tiber/Hjalti et une face Akatosh/(Enfant de) Dragon.
new bodies are always born with new souls
C'est très proche de ce que dit Ark'ay
Il n'est pas précisé que l'Underking qui vient visiter Medea soit Wulfharth. Il est possible qu'il s'agisse de Zurin Arctus. L'Underking est déjà sans doute à ce moment une oversoul de Wulfharth et Zurin et/ou un endossement de Wulfharth par Zurin. On peut dire que l'Underking est également une oversoul de l'Underking et Cuhlecain et/ou un endossement de Cuhlecain par l'Underking.
Pourquoi je parle d'oversoul Underking/Cuhlecain alors que l'âme de Cuhlecain est dans le Saphir et celle de l'Underking dans le Mantella ?
Et bien parce que : Cuhlecain’s soul was absorbed into the sapphire and tried as they might they could not release it.
Les conspirateurs se saisissent très probablement du Saphir pour en retirer l'âme de Cuhlecain. Medea ramène le corps de Cuhlecain en Colovie, mais il n'est pas fait d'autre mention du Saphir. Je pense que le Saphir est le Mantella. Dans L'hérésie arcturienne
, le Mantella est juste une « gemme spirituelle » avant de devenir le Mantella. Rien ne dit que cette gemme n'était pas le Saphir. Et puis, pour faire fonctionner le Numidium, n'est-il pas mieux de mettre plusieurs âmes dans le Mantella plutôt qu'une ? Certes, le Mantella est vert dans Daggerfall, mais bon, il peut y avoir plusieurs explications à cela, dont le simple retcon.
dreaming of dreams
“As I lay here, dreaming of dreams, I hear the song of the heart and the sobs of the land. What am I, but a vessel of divine perchance? Are we, as mortals, not bringers of the eternal dusk?

The Celediilons (more commonly referred to as Cuhls)
The Celediilons (more commonly referred to as Cuhls) of the eponymous Celediilon Union are a noble people who have faced much hardship and social stigma in the past.

a theocratic monarchy
Their society is a theocratic monarchy of Knight Houses and Priesthoods that worship the gods Ebonarm, Sai, Jephre, Magnus, Kyne, Mara, Morihaus, and Akatosh. Children who survive being blessed with the flesh of the Slumbering King are put through rigorous training in order to become the Knight-Templars and Paladin-Generals of the nation’s great army; those who are rejected are exiled into the lower caste, where they become farmers, artisans, and servants to the nobility.

those exceptional few who are descended from Taurian unions possess small horns and a more burly build
The average Cuhl is tall, lean, and possesses either crimson or brown hair; those exceptional few who are descended from Taurian unions possess small horns and a more burly build. Since the Celediilon woodlands are inhabited by a great deal of dangerous creatures (such as the dire wolf and the river salamander) that terrorize their kingdom, Cuhls are expert hunters and trackers.
Les Minotaures, qui sont littéralement les descendants d'Alessia et Morihaus, se retrouvent dans l'Union Celediilon et forment le peuple Cuhl. Par métissage, ils donnent une peuple mi-humain mi-minotaure (75% homme, 25% taureau). Les Minotaures sont également un peuple persécuté, sans doute trahi et chassé du pouvoir par l'Ordre Alessien lors d'un coup-d'État
, pour finalement devenir un peuple sauvage et brutal.

the Union is as large as the Imperial Province itself
Before becoming an official province of the Empire in the current era, the Celedillon Union was considered the largest city-state in Tamri-El's history. According to the Imperial Geographical Society, who were finally allowed to conduct a census on the realm, the Union is as large as the Imperial Province itself and is divided into numerous regions, some of which are mostly uninhabited by civilized folk. The population of the Union is mainly comprised of Cuhls, nomadic Minotaur clans, Dreugh from the Harajk tribe, and - if rumor holds true - hidden conclaves of Wild Elves (although these sighting have become rare in the last century). The odd outsider or two may be spotted as indentured servants or exotic bodyguards for the highest nobility, and trade caravans from neighboring lands are quite common in the Union's most important cities (see, Side Bar: Beyond Nucyrod).

jungles and temperate rainforests like the Cyrodiil of old, before it's beauty was changed by the blasphemous Tiber Septim
The geography of the Union might invoke nostalgia for the common historian, as it is mostly comprised of jungles and temperate rainforests like the Cyrodiil of old, before it's beauty was changed by the blasphemous Tiber Septim. The northern territory gradually grows more rugged and less thick with vegetation before giving away to the Reman Savanna and the Sifrian Mountain Range that marks the northern border, while the south becomes more wet, hot, and foggy as it transits into the Boiling Moor that marks the southern border.
Les Cuhls rejettent l'amour de Tiber Septim

Dor, Hestra, Kreath, and the capital, Medea
While there are numerous river villages scattered throughout the central jungle syatem, as well as farms and vassal towns in the northern grazelands, there are only four major cities in the Union - Dor, Hestra, Kreath, and the capital, Medea. These settlements are large, grand, and built to withstand sieges (although the Union has yet to be successfully invaded by any foreign power) with their massive walls and siege engines. Each of the capitals are built in the shape of the Sapphire, and separated into five districts - the Market District, the Residential District, the Holy District, the War District, and the Under District, where the Underpalaces of the Mede Family reside. According to the Medean annuals, which this humble scribe was able to read in full, the eldest son-mirror of Cuhlecain, Titos Mede, commission for this design as to laugh at the sacred ruby-splattered diamond of the False Empire, which was a heathen death sign brought to Tamri-El by the Eastern Ouroborus. His younger brother-selves, slightly imperfect as they were, were given seats of power in the other cities so that their more ashen forms may be kept whole by the soul of their Father., while Titos and his Ebon-blessed 1000 conquered the Imperial City with mere strength alone.

"Is every thought a story, and every story a legend , and every legend a myth, and every myth a world? And when these worlds are forgotten, where do they go? Or do they stay, out of mind but in sight, awaiting entry if one just remembers there is a grain of truth in every lie."

a land outside of what we regard as normal space and time
Although the Union is a land outside of what we regard as normal space and time, it is still a land on a continent much like Tamri-El, and like all lands it has neighbors it must deal with on both peaceful and militaristic terms. But of these lands we have little knowledge, and only two are confirmed to be more than mere rumor. The southeastern Bogdom of Rogon and it's silver plated men have attempted to evade the Union with their saurian war-beasts numerous times, but have failed thanks to the will of the gods and Celediilon perseverance. The infamous Knighthood of Twil, to the north of the Sifrian Peaks, has traded skyshards and mithril with the Cuhls for as long as they remember, and often show up unannounced in their lands singing their Ge Songs.
