Interracial breeding?

Inspired as I am by your amazing character biographies, I started thinking about possibly making one myself, but the picture I have of my character as of yet has some difficulties, so I'd like to ask you a question: is there any precedent in the Elder Scrolls lore for offspring produced by members of different races, exempli gratia a kid begotten by a Nord and a Breton, or, perhaps more daring, Mer and Man? Terrified

Thank you and cheers!

all mer and men can breed and have offspring. the offspring will always be of the race of the mother with slight traits of the father.

only long standing interbreeding over generations will permanently produce "half breed" offspring. this is seen in both the bretons and the reachment.

It is unknown if Argonians and Kahjiit can produce offspring with each other or the other races, there have been sources (in unvierse, afaik we havent seen any ourselves, this is only mentioned in a book concerning this fact) of this happening.
Keep in mind that "Argonian" might aswell mean Kothringi here who im fairly sure can breed with other races.

Very interesting! Do you perhaps know of an in-game character which is a clear example of this phenomenon, or perhaps someone mentioned in a book? I'd love to learn more about this.

In terms of how the offspring is the race of the mother with traits of the father; there's a family in Solitude in Skyrim who's like that.

There's a redguard, Sayma, who's married to a nord, Beirand. They have a Redguard son named Kayd.

The Gray Prince is an even bigger example, especialy since it doesnt stick to the regular conventions of TES racial phylogeny. He is gray due to beeing part (human) vampire.

Yes! I can picture a character biography now which allows that I've been role-playing all this time here on the forums!

i thought about having a mixed race character once. i can relate to mixed heiritages. but it just.. iis too special, and not realy fitting, as im playing an argonian, and its highly unlikeley that this actually works.
Also i usually refrain from my character beeing too special. id rather have him be miserable, and ugly. And angry about it.

Mhm. Yes. Well, my character still needs a lot of pondering, but hopefully I'll have a character bio out before launch.

As already said by others, humanesque races and -mer can get it on. Dunmer females (young ones) are even known to be extremely promiscious and they grab what they can get their hands on, haha. I'm not sure about Khajiit and Argonians though, and especially concerning bestial races it's best to use your commons sense when in doubt ;)

Two of the Septim Emperors, Cassynder and Uriel IV, were children of a Dunmer mother (Katariah); the former with an Imperial father (Pelagius III) and the later with a Breton (Gallivere Lariat). Interestingly, it's mentioned that Cassynder aged quickly (though this might only be in comparison to his mother, who, as a Dunmer noble, could have lived centuries) and had poor health, and implied this is normal for children of two races (and Bretons, who have some elven ancestry themselves). There's no indication of this elsewhere, but as far as I know there hasn't been anything to contradict it either.


Count only the happy hours.

Oh wow. Well that's good to know, I guess.

You did not think I'd want to be half a Khajiit or Argonian, did you? D:

Great! I'll be an old, sickly hero then.

its about having children here.

sex is possible between the races. barenziah herself had a particulary wild night with a kahjiit, wich was the point when we learned they have spiked dicks, this was retconned not to apply to the playable subrace tho, due to the imminent rule 34. at least i like it to believe that this was the cause.

And even as an argonian you can have a breton hooker in Morrowind. so yeah i guess it does work... one way or another.
Also one noble has been mentioned to have his way with "argonian wenches" and im not even talking about crassius here...

I suggest you read this:

http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Notes..._Phylogeny

"After much analysis of living specimens, the Council long ago determined that all "races" of elves and humans may mate with each other and bear fertile offspring."

HOWEVER:

"Generally the offspring bear the racial traits of the mother, though some traces of the father's race may also be present."

And if you think it's outdated lore, here:

I would personally love to see a half argonian and half khajiit character in game. I imagine that is quite a site!
