The Bosmer are a merish race from the province of Valenwood.
Mainly known as Wood Elves by the mannish races the Bosmer or Boiche as they call themselves are agile of body and quick of wit. They make excellent archers and thieves. Popular folklore has it that they invented the bow and arrow.
Among the gifts bestowed on them by their patron deity Y'ffre is the ability to rally simple-minded animals to their aid. They are well adapted to living in forested areas and have an uncanny ability to blend into the surroundings of these, making them rarely seen when they do not wish to be.
