A Suthay-raht in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

The Suthay-raht are a breed of Khajiit, a race that hails from the land of Elsweyr.

Appearance and physiologyEdit

The Suthay-raht are very similar in appearance and physiology to their cousins, the Suthay. Like the Suthay, the Suthay-raht have upright pointed ears, fur covering their entire bodies, and long tails. They are also significantly taller than the Suthay, though still shorter than some races of Men and Mer. Like the Suthay, the Suthay-raht are digitigrades.

Influences of the moonsEdit

The Suthay-raht are one of seventeen confirmed breeds of Khajiit, and each breed is born due to the influences of Nirn's two moons, Masser and Secunda.

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:

Full Waxing New Waning
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 a breed appears.

The Suthay-raht is a small biped, born under Masser's new Phase, and Secunda's waning Phase. They are the most beastlike of all small biped Khajiit.
