Difference between Syrabane and Magnus?

I know the backstory of each god, what I'm asking is the difference in what they represent. Afaik, one is the god of sorcery while the other of magic? Sounds like potato-potahto to me.

    Perhaps his ascension as the god of magic is him mantling Magnus?
    I was also wondering about that, but they are clearly two separate gods - e.g. look at Torinaan. Though they are placed in the same room. Interestingly, other sources treat Syrabane as a female.

    I found it really interesting that essentially all Divines were Aldmer/Altmers... Which could or couldn't be the same as Altmer being Aedra. Even Auri-El seems to have been a normal ancestor. This could explain why we also got Anui-El, which is presumably a genuine Aedra spirit.

    I like that TES doesn't have stereotypical gods like the "sun god" or the "sea god", but I find the distinction between Syrabane and Magnus quite thin.

    TES might have had such stereotypical gods back in Arena-Daggerfall but they evolved to have somehow their own backstory...
    For example, some Daedra Princes have the same field of powers unlike well-dispatched gods.
    I think the lore text from Celarus about psijic beliefs expains all this suite well. It is the theory of the cult of the ancestors (like Euhemerus’ IRL)
