This is a general discussion topic for anyone to ask questions about lore.
Ask away...and hopefully other members of this group will answer
Are there any blind mages in the lore?
None specifically come to mind, but blindness is the fate of all Moth Priests and some of them are mages. In fact the one in the Dawnguard DLC used magic.
Also a lot of mages tend to be the researching kind and I'm sure some went on to research the Elder Scrolls. Perhaps even try and read the Elder Scrolls which would've made them blind.
Wasn't that guy in ESO a blind mage? The hermit in the main quest.
