Nymphs are rare and mysterious beings found in High Rock and Hammerfell. They have the ability called Energy Leech that drains fatigue on touch. All of the species seem to be female and are usually described as beautiful, naked women.
Nymphs are usually found living alone in hidden grottoes. They do, however, have a language of their own, which is said to sound like Ayleid, Bosmer and faerie languages, but share no vocabulary. This language is very hard to learn by common Tamrielic races.
Despite the common tales of Nymph seductive nature, they are, in fact, very shy creatures. It takes months to gain one's trust and make her reveal herself. It is said that Nymphs are the wisest and most wonderful creatures in Tamriel. They know more about the behavior and varieties of the deep woodland creatures than the greatest Bosmer scholar.
- Nymphs are known to refer to men and mer as "mortals".
- Nymphs appear to be similar to another creature, the Spriggan.
- It is possible to speak the language of Nymphs in The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, using the Nymph skill.
