- Main article: Khajiit
Appearance and physiologyEdit
The Ohmes is the most Mer-like Khajiit. They are shorter than a Bosmer and have similar pointed ears. Unlike other Khajiit they have no fur, no tail, and no naturally occurring distinguishable Khajiit feature. To distinguish themselves from Mer, the Ohmes usually paint their faces with 'catlike' war paint.
The Ohmes were a common sight across Tamriel before the end of the 4th century of the 3rd Era. After this time period, they became a rare sight outside of Elsweyr. It is possible they returned to their homeland en masse.
Influences of the moonsEdit
The former is Nirn's largest moon, and the main influencing force on Khajiit breeds. Depending on Masser's lunar lattice, the Khajiit will fall under one major appearance and physiology out of four possibilities. These are as follows:
|Large Quadruped||Large Biped||Small Biped||Small Quadruped|
Secunda, Nirn's smaller moon, influences the appearance and physiology of a Khajiit in more subtle ways than that of Masser. Generally, the closer Secunda is to a full phase, the less beastlike a breed appears. The closer Secunda is to a Waning phase, the more beastlike the breed appears to be.
The Ohmes is a small biped, and is the least beastlike of the Small Biped variants. It is born under Masser's new Phase, and Secunda's full Phase.
