Yes, I am aware of the main 10 races, but I added 2 other races that have not been showcased my Bethesda (some in latest form or in original form) before but are in the Lore. I’m such a lore nerd…
Aries: Orsimer due to their aggression. They are a fierce tribal people. Once they are ticked off, an orc berserker will be the scariest thing you see in a battle zone, like a ram running straight towards you, but with a warhammer…
Remember the Code of Malacath!
Taurus: Nords (Human) due to their stubbornness. Also their love for a good hardy meal with a couple of meads or cups of wine. Strongest human race with raw stamina. Medium-tall height, muscular builds. Boast that they are not affected by cold weather. Kinda racist towards everyone.
Remember, their steel is the best!
Gemini: Khajiit (Cat Folk) due to their double sided lives. One moment charming and charismatic selling you something, then, stealing your coin purse. They are great communicators. Unpredictable and wild, able to stalk and rip you open with claws. Have a thing for sweets and drugs. Steer clear of local food! Don’t steal their sweetroll! xD Or their moonsugar/skooma! Moonsugar is a hallucinogenic substance coming from their province which is an ingredient for Skooma. Skooma is a drug in a bottle like LSD and cocaine put together with the after effect of marijuana, and only they can make the drug.
Did you know? Their breed of Khajiit (appearance) is determined by the moons, Maser and Secunda, not from their parents.
Cancer: Snow Elves (aka Falmer, translated would be The Betrayed Ones) due to being passive and “needing to be nurtured, or be the nurturer” Although, even being assumed to be the prettiest race of elves with pale white skin and beautiful hair, none were documented except their last Prince. They were betrayed by the Dwemer, when they where seeking shelter from the Nords. Being poisoned, they became blind ugly creatures with the next 2 millennia while being slaves.
Now they are nothing but monsters.
Leo: High Elves (aka Altmer) due to having a self-centered mindset to have their race of elves beat the human races and thinking very highly of themselves. Able to cast the best magic around. Wanting to dominate the whole continent of Tamriel and believing that their religion is the best. Golden skinned, usually blond hair, tallest in height, thin ish frames. Most properly civilized race.
Did you know? The common language the races use to communicate with one another is Altmer, kind of like English in real life.
Virgo: Imperials (Human) due to having a logical diplomatic mindset, are analytical, observant, and wanting to establish a perfect unification of all races under one dynasty. Yet they are viewed as cold and interfering by some other races. Will do anything to get what they want. Normal human characteristics and appearances. Civilized society that most don’t like.
Did you know? In game, Imperial race find more money, earn more, and are the best at trade and commerce.
Libra: Bretons (aka Manmer) due to their diplomatic nature, are good negotiators and diplomats. Still elegant and beautiful as elves, and just as good warriors as humans but with magic. Balancing both of their bloods. xD They have bickering nobility, and have a taste for beautiful, refined, and expensive things. Have the sharp beautiful features of elves, with some even sporting a set of elf ears. Prefer to settle down with a debate than over blades. Civilized society in a mess.
Did you know they make the best spellswords? Also they are half human and half elves from Nordic and Ayeilid Elves lineage.
Scorpio: Tsaesci (an Akaviri race) due to being mysterious, frightening, and seductive in nature. They have upper half of their bodies of a human and lower half of a serpent, said to be tall and beautiful if not frighteningly beautiful. They kill by sword or eating/sucking blood from their opponents. Are vampires in nature.
Said to have assimilated the Akaviri race of humans, or so people think…
Sagittarius: Wood Elves (aka Bosmer) due to being excellent archers and loving to wander around. Agile, small frame, shortest in height, the swiftest runners through forests. Strict carnivores, friendly but have a darker side. Will eat you if they kill you in battle…
They are cannibals due to their Green Pact with their gods and their nature/vegetation.
Capricorn: Dark Elves (aka Dunmer, originally Chimer) due to being cool under fire. Do slavery, run an assassin cult called Morag Tong, and do various dark
magic. Are gifted in Destruction magic especially fire. Arrogant, feel
so supreme, independent, detached from the world, and cold. Grey skin,
red eyes, medium height and build.
They do however, as a
culture value loyalty and family. (I know Capricorn is earth, but I
couldn’t find a better race and thought it would make sense to use one
of the ten main races.)
Aquarius: Redguards (Human) due to being extremely energetic. Dark skinned, agile, muscular, and athletic build. Most best natural warrior from the start, all know hand to hand martial arts combat. Has army in both land and water. Make great mercenaries and sellswords. Open to many things, and ideas, want to see what everyone and the world has to offer. Rebels, like to do tattoos, piercings, and war paints.
Did you know? Their architecture is the most ornate on Tamriel that you will ever get, that is if you have the money.
Pisces: Argonians (aka Saxhleel) due to their secretive sensitive side that they hide under their thick scaly skin, and are great swimmers.(Fish? Kinda stereotypical I know.) Like their homeland, they are impenetrable and mysterious. Reptile like in appearance, fish and amphibian qualities. Reserved, and hard to know/trust people. Yet, when they claim a friend, they are extremely loyal.
Did you know? Argonians rely on their Hist tree sap at birth so the little hatch-ling undergoes a drug trip referred to as a “spiritual journey to obtain their soul” on their Naming Day.
