ES Online: Race: Altmer
A description of the Altmer race will appear here along with it’s abilities.
“The High Elves, or Altmer, arrived in Tamriel thousands of years ago from Old Aldmeris. They see themselves, perhaps justifiably, as the ruling race of Tamriel. They are a highly cultured people, known for their breathtaking architecture and massive libraries of histories and creative works. They tend to be isolationists, largely remaining on Summerset Isle, and only emerge when they perceive a great threat to their homeland. They are powerful mages and warriors, and the de facto leaders of the Aldmeri Dominion.”
The Altmers, or High Elves, resides in the Summerset Isles. Unlike the closely related Bosmer (commonly called Wood Elves) who prefer to live a simple life in the woods, the Altmers have continued a pursuit of intellect and magic. After the fall of the Imperial City in Cyrodiil to the human supporters of the Daedra, the Altmer joined forces with the Bosmers and Khajiit to prevent the inevitable devastation.
