In skyrim, Oghama Infinium is trapped in a Dwemer lockbox. Herma-Mora has been manipulating Septimus Signus for many years to open the lockbox to free the book.
However, the book was last seen in the Oblivion Crisis, way past the time where all Dwemer has died. How was it locked in a Dwemer lockbox then?
Furthermore, the book is an artifact of Herma-Mora, and these artifacts can simply be recalled to the respective realm of Oblivion and given out again. He has certainly done it before.
- Mora promised the Oghma Infinium as a reward for defeating Graccus. However, the Prince [...] snatched it away upon Graccus' death

Why did Herma-Mora need to manipulate Septimus for many years to open the lockbox?
