High Elves As An ESO Race Option

High Elves are part of the Aldmeri Dominion faction in The Elder Scrolls Online.  This faction was created by a pack between the High Elf, Wood Elf, and Khajiit races.  The symbol of the faction is an eagle.  The colors are yellow and silver.  

Lore says that the Dominion seeks to reestablish Elven dominance over Tamriel in order to protect it from the carelessness of the younger races.  Players selecting this faction will begin in Khenarthi’s Roost after their escape from Coldharbour.
