Yup. That's why Dagoth Ur has to mantle him. Hence why Dagoth Ur is keen on getting the Neverarine to Red Mountain, to replicate the Enantionmorph with the Sharmat, Hortator and Witness. By mantling Lorkhan, he breaks the Dragon and the Serpent and, in theory, removes the upstart Talos' influence over the world. Of course, in practice, Talos has achieved CHIM, which kinda screws up all plans of that kind. Dagoth Ur may have succeeded, since he had achieved a kind of anti-CHIM, if you believe his mad ravings, but the Thalmor certainly wont.
That's the part that got me about Skyrim. I know their plan is to weaken Talos by depriving him of worshipers, but where in the lore is it ever implied that the gods need worship? The Thalmor are pretty quick to jump the gun on their assumptions about reality. Which actually makes a lot of sense, given that they're Nazi analogues.
