For other uses, see Imp.

Imps are small winged humanoids that cast low-level shock, fire or frost spells. Though bothersome by themselves, to lower-level characters they are especially dangerous in groups. They inhabit all the regions of Cyrodiil, but are most commonly found around ruins, caves and dungeons, and are highly aggressive.


  • An Imp can be found quite quickly, as one lives outside of Sideways Cave. This cave is only a few steps from the exit from the Imperial Prison Sewer, where the Hero first enters the open air of Cyrodiil.

  • While idle, they rarely take a rest from flying and land on the ground for any length of time. This is rare and difficult to observe.
