Sithis (also known as Padomay) is a deity, representative of emptiness and the void. He is worshiped by the Dark Brotherhood.
Sithis is neither an Aedra nor a Daedra. In fact, according to ancient texts, Sithis predates the creation of both groups and played a part in their creation with his older "brother" Anu (god of order and light) when their blood was spilled in combat with each other. When their spilled blood mixed, it gave birth to the Aedra, but Sithis's lone blood ended up giving birth to the Daedra. This leads some to refer to Sithis as "The True God"; the one who existed before everything else and whose chaotic nature caused the reaction that gave life to the current gods.
Sithis is described as the embodiment of everything evil, but at the same time, he is described as being nothing at all: a void. He is appeased through death (although he himself is not a god of death) and other acts of suffering and strife.
It is said that The Night Mother bore the five children of Sithis, then sacrificed them in tribute to his unholy greatness. According to The Brothers of Darkness, he is "married" to The Night Mother, and the Dark Brotherhood are their metaphorical children.
