Historial Background Of The Redguards

Originating in Hammerfell, their ancestors were desert dwellers who migrated to Tamriel from the lost continent of Yokuda.  Their capital is the port of Sentinel, but they have deep roots in the sands of the Alik’s Desert.

The Redguards are a hardy race with dark skin and wiry hair accustomed to enduring harsh environments.  They prioritize honor and dignity above all else.  Redguards also strive to preserve ancient traditions.  

Lore tells us that Redguards are athletic warriors who are masters of melee combat.  They are known to avoid magic and prefer to settle their differences with blades of steel.  The Redguards are also known to avoid magic.  They have a hardy constitution, resistance to poison, and quickness of foot.
