The most naturally talented warriors in Tamriel, the dark-skinned Redguards of Hammerfell seem born to battle, though their pride and fierce independence of spirit makes them more suitable as scouts or skirmishers, or as free-ranging heroes and adventurers, than as rank-and-file soldiers. In addition to their cultural affinities for many weapon and armor styles, Redguards are also physically blessed with hardy constitutions, resistance to poison and disease, and quickness of foot.

Redguards hail from the province of Hammerfell. They have descended from a long line of warriors and mystic seers. Legend has it that Redguards are innately more proficient at weapons than any other race. They are excellent in all arts concerning blade and shield.

Special abilitiesEdit



Because of the Redguards natural skills and attributes the Redguard makes an exceptional warrior of any variety being able to use any melee weapon to a better extent than many of the other races. Their higher strength and endurance make them a good choice for this. They are naturally distrustful of magic, especially necromancy, illusion and conjuration.


Because of their bonuses to Athletics, Blade, Light Armor and Mercantile, Redguards make excellent Rogues. Due to their high strenght, they are able to carry a lot of loot, which will help the player to make more money, and a high endurance permits them to not fully rely on Light Armor to cope with heavy damage.
