Bretons are multiracial by birth, being both elven and human, although displaying traits relating more to the latter. They can be seen living in High Rock, a small province situated in the north-western section of Tamriel. Although the province has a coastal line, and therefore some vegetation, it is mainly a rocky and mountainous region with a bleak landscape. The province is organised in various city states, such as Camlorn, or minor Breton Kingdoms.
The origins of this race can be traced to the Daggerfall game, and the First Era of Tamriel’s history. Their history involves the Aldmer, the original men who inhabited Tamriel, and other tribes such as the Nedic people and the Nords. Because these people intermingled and maintained control of Tamriel, the Manmer tribes were forced to live as a lower class of citizens. Once the Aldmer lost hegemony, the Manmer were able to emerge and mix with human races, and hence the mixed blood in the Breton race.
This race is particularly skilled at all forms of magic, and many great sorcerers came from the High Rock province. They are highly resistant to most forms of magic, and can be combined with the right birth sign for high magic reserves.
