Khajiit As An ESO Race Option

Khajiit 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.  This faction was created by a pack between the High Elf, Wood Elf, and Khajiit races.

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.

Historial Background Of The Khajiit

The Khajiit are cat-liike people who come from Elsweyr.  They are known throughout the land for their high intelligence and cat-like agility.

While they are good thieves and acrobats and fearsome warriors, Khajiit are rarely mages or sorcerers.  They differ anatomically from humans and elves because of their fur, tail, and metabolism.

Lore tells us that Khajiit are a beast-race with a lifespan similar to that of humans.  Khajiit often enjoy Moon Sugar (commonly called Skooma) using elaborate pipes to consume it. 

They have also developed very distinct armor and weapon styles that have become iconic with moons used as symbols.  With a fearsome attitude in battle, Khajiit are considered the strong arm of the Dominion.
