Elder Scrolls Online Races: The Aldmeri Dominion

High Elves | Wood Elves | Khajiit


The Aldmeri Dominion was formed when word came down that human supporters of Molag Bal had taken control of Imperial City in Cyrodiil. Queen Ayrenn, the High Elf ruler, built the Aldmeri Dominion with the Wood Elves, who live in the Valenwood just northeast of the Summerset Isles, and the Khajiit, whom she aided during the recent Knahaten Flu outbreak that devastated the Khajiit homeland of Elsweyr.

Queen Ayrenn claims that she has no hatred for the races of Man, but that she would rather put an infant High Elf on the Ruby Throne than see some idiot human bring further disaster to Tamriel. She espouses the belief that rulership is the ancient and divine right of the High Elves and their allies, and that the foolish children belonging to the other races should naturally fall to heel.


The members of the Aldmeri Dominion feel that the short-lived, quarrelsome and easily-corruptible humans are unfit to rule Tamriel. They do have a point there - the Imperials who run things in Cyrodiil have fallen under the sway of the evil Daedric prince Molag Bal, and the members of the other two factions have a long history of being at each others' throats.
