Alkosh, colloquially known as the Dragon King of Cats,[1] is the chief divinity of the Anaquinine Khajiit religion, which was loosely based on the Nine Divines and Altmer religions, and was a variation of the Altmer god Auri-El and the Imperial god Akatosh.

He is depicted in ancient Khajiit legends as a fearsome dragon, but in the Third and Fourth Eras the Khajiit adapted the legends into claiming that he was really just a big cat. Alkosh is the most powerful of the Khajiit gods and was a pre-Ri'Datta Dynasty developed god. After the creation of the god Riddle'Thar, Alkosh lost many of his worshippers in the majority of Elsweyr, but he remained immensely popular in Elsweyr's wasteland regions.

Alkosh is later mentioned during the book, Where Were You When the Dragon Broke?, as having been broken by the humans, and R'leyt-harhr remarks how difficult an achievement that would have been.[2]

Alkosh is often referred to as the "First Cat" by the Khajiit.[3]
