Akujatu posted... yeah, metaphors aren't things or anything. my curiosity was peaked by his subtle innuendo. as in my curiosity hit its highest point. the peak.
It's homonyms, not metaphors. Metaphors are used to paint a picture in someone's mind by basically stating that one thing is another. Homonyms are words that have very different spellings, but sound the same. EX: Homonym: their; there; they're
Metaphor: My blanket is my own personal hearth.

Intelligence wise, he is the most dangerous. He could reveal things that could start mass wars, give away powerful and dangerous lost spells. He probably knows how to kill gods...
But he is a intellectual threat, sure he could probably destroy a mortal with ease, but he isn't the "strongest" amongst his own kind. But I have no doubt he could be more dangerous than the rest of the Daedric combined if he wanted to be.
What I want to know, is why is he so interested in having a Dragonborn in his pocket...
I wouldn't even call the return of the Dwemer unlikely. The "last living Dwemer," could easily be construed to mean the last living Dwemer in that plane, under those circumstances. The Dwemer could also return as not totally living. There's a lot to be done with it. That being said, I'd only ever want it done if it's done right. I think they re-introduced dragons without making them lame, and they'd have to do it that way.

That being said, I'd much rather use the hope of the Falmer not being totally wiped out (as hinted by the guy in Skyrim) to get them back and playable than have the Dwemer.
They are, except Talos, who is just a divine, NOT an Aedra, and the only reason they can be killed was due to giving up nearly all of their strength to create Nirn.
Technically, it is because the ability to kill them (and how mythopoeic forces can affect them) is a part of the "divine contract" of Creation. Nirn and the Earth Bones are formed from their essence.
daedra princes operate on an entirely different level then the daedra you fight in any game. so they can't be banished.
They can be banished. It just takes a significant level of power to do so. They can even be "killed" after a fashion, where they go to the Waters of Oblivion.
the power levels of the daedric princes are well debatable.
Clavicus Vile talks about it a little bit in the novels.
““Don’t think I’m weak,” Vile said. “Everyone who comes here now thinks I’m weak, just because a wee bit of my stuff has been stolen. The trick is, if you’ve got less to work with, you just don’t spread it so thin. My realm may be a little smaller than in happier times, but in it I’m just as strong as I ever was.””
Not to mention that Vile was still perfectly capable of preventing Umbriel from exiting his realm despite the fact that Umbriel was ("technically' speaking) more powerful at the time. It still couldn't escape, because Vile prevented it from leaving (until it worked around the restrictions, but it could not violate them).
