Not to be confused with men.


Two male humans.
The one on the left is at the age of sexual maturity,

Phenotypically, males are organisms outfitted with external sexual organs. Procreation of many mammalian species, especially humans, requires the sexual unification of a female with a male. In regards to sexual dimorphism, males are typically taller and more physically robust, although exceptions exist. Culturally, males are attributed with an aptitude for physical labor.

In The Elder Scrolls, each of the ten playable races contains a male and female sex. Generally, selecting the sex as male grants a slight increase to Strength, offset by a decrease to Intelligence.

Social structureEdit

In terms of governance, the role of ruler is most commonly granted to males, passed down from father to son patrilinearly. Ruler roles on Nirn allocated to men include that of Jarl or Emperor. Widowers of deceased female rulers can inherit political offices as well and are more likely to be given to male heirs, rather than females. Most organization founders are male as well. Vanus Galerion, Reman Cyrodiil, Tiber Septim are examples of this.
