Similar to the Rakshasas in the D&D realms, the Khajiits are a race with both human and animal characteristics, specifically feline. Their appearance is more feline than human however, as their heads resemble those of cats, displaying great whiskers and fangs, and they have paws which allow them to be speedier and agile.
The Khajiits originally hail from Elsweyr, which is a province situated in the southern coast of Tamriel, belonging to the Cyrodilic empire and therefore of Imperial basis. The Elsweyr region is held together by the Mane, or a race which rules supreme above all Khajiits, being of exceptional rare breed, and takes all final decisions regarding the confederacy’s matters. Khajiits are also known for their moon sugar, a narcotic and highly intoxicating which is thought to hail from the sky as part of a blessing by gods of magic.
Khajiits are excellent warriors, agile and possessing great speed, and rarely favour the use of magic. Although they are not completely strange to the arcane, they prefer to use their stealth or natural fighting abilities. They are natural boxers and good at any form of free-fighting.
