They were the first one's to occupy an empire on the lands of Tamriel. Although Argonian's were there first, set up in tribes. I think of the Altmer's as the british who discovered North America and set up the 13 colonies and then began their own government set aside from the the other part's of Nirn. So it's basically, American's who's country is now being infested with massive amounts of foreigners. I could care less about them though, Khajiit's all the way. Plus when it comes to my character, he could care less what they do. Only the bad guys.

Khajiits and Argonians are natives to Tamriel it seems. When one of the first Aldmer explorers, Torval the Pilot, was new to Tamriel he talked of the lizard and cat-creatures of Tamriel but didn't think they were intelligent enough to converse with Mer.

It might be possible that both Argonian and Khajiit are of Akivari descent - one from the Dragons and the other from the Tiger people. That's mostly my speculation.

Aldmers were the first colonizers of Tamriel and subdued the inhabitants to follow the Elven ways, speak Mer as a unifying language, absorb Mer customs, laws, etc. They were the civilizing force in Tamriel and the Altmer are their direct decendents. Men came down later from Atmora, which apparently is freezing over.

Yeah, I think that's what they were based on. They left the Empire (league of Nations) Invaded Valenwood (Czechoslovakia) because there were a lot of Elves (Germans) there. Forming an alliance with Elsweyr (Austria) in return for help; disappearing moons (riots), probably caused by the Thalmor/Nazis anyway. Even the war was called the Great War.

But I like making connections. This is probably all nonsense.

Think of the Altmer as Germans in general -- THEY'RE NOT ALL NAZIS!!


By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend. I just meant the strategy the Thalmor used was like Hitler's excuse to invade Austria. I didn't mean that the Austrians wanted Hitler to come in.
