I have a feeling that it's one of the Daedric Princes, but I can't seem to place a claw on any specific one. Boethia sounds about right, but it could also be Nocturnal.

If nothingness is the crown, then I say it's Sithis. Specifically because I think Sithis isn't described as a god...

I agree with Zinrahzul. Sithis makes the most sense given the clues we have. Ni deyto and nid rah indicate that it's not just a traditional god or Daedric Prince, but what convinced me was the use of the word nil. It can mean "nothingness/void," which describes Sithis's domain. Good riddle as usual! I really had to think about this one for a bit before I got it!

I suggest Vus, the draconic for planet Nirn. It's surrounded by the void and resides in Oblivion.

You all have good guesses! I originally intended the answer to just be [deyra], but Sithis fits great as well.
