Forest-coupling is a skill possessed by the Bosmer which enables them to walk into the shade of a single tree and vanish.[1]


The Bosmer's forest-coupling skills are remarkable, and the title of their most famous and renowned poem, the Meh Ayleidion, means "The One Thousand Benefits of Hiding."[1][2] 

For a time, Colovian armies used Bosmer as Archers, however, their forest-coupling skills meant that the Wood Elf archers in the War of Rihad were too prone to desertion for further use in the Colovian armies.[1]


  • The Bosmer's forest-coupling skills are similar to the Maormer's involuntary chameleon-like skin.[3]
