Khajiit is commonly considered one of the beast folks, one of the few survivors of the original inhabitants of Tamriel before the coming of mer and man, and Elsweyr is their home.
Khajiit is one of the ten default playable races in The Elder Scrolls. They are one of the beast races which inhabit the continent of Tamriel, primarily their home province of Elsweyr.
They are known for their natural agility, stealth, and their production of moon sugar, which can be refined into Skooma.
Khajiit differs from humans and elves not only in their skeletal form and the fur that covers their bodies but in their metabolism and digestion as well. Khajiit’s lifespan is similar to humans.
They travel around selling their wares but are not usually trusted, due to the racial prejudice of many of the races in Tamriel, resulting possibly from the belief that most Khajiit is thieves. They usually talk about themselves in the third person, such as with J’zargo and Akkhuz-ri.
Khajiit Race History
The Khajiit, along with the Argonians, inhabited Tamriel long before the elves arrived. Which could mean the two beast races are possibly native to Tamriel, unlike humans or mer, which migrated to Tamriel. However, some sources say life originated in Tamriel.
Topal the Pilot, founder of the Ayleid empire, described a primitive but intelligent race of feline humanoids inhabiting the forests around Lake Rumare when he arrived there with his expedition in the Merethic Era. Eventually, the elves and humans drove the beast races into the southern extremes of Tamriel, into the forests and marshes that humans considered uninhabitable.
The settled Khajiit of southern Elsweyr is noted for its mercantile traditions and a stable agrarian aristocracy based on sugarcane and Saltrice plantations. They were also quick to adopt Imperial ways. The nomadic tribal Khajiit of the north is aggressive and territorial tribal raiders who cling to their warlike barbarian tradition. They are periodically united under tribal warlords.
