Read the main Khajiit article on our Elder Scrolls wiki for general information regarding the race in the Elder Scrolls series!
 The RaceWhile the cat-like Khajiit are a long ways from their desert homeland of Elsweyr, they will play a part in the northern province of Skyrim. One of the three major "beast" tribes in Tamriel, the Khajiit are agile, cunning, and see very well in the dark. Approximately 17 known "breeds" of Khajiit exist. These all unfortunately factor into their reputation as thieves.
In fact, the Khajiit function in walks of life, oweing to the structure of modern Elsweyr society. The Khajiit are ruled equally by both mercantile and nomadic castes, the former under nobility while the latter led by traditional chieftains, depending on the phases of the moons.
Khajiit take pride in Elsweyr's chief export, Moon Sugar. This valuable condiment has left many Khajiit with a fondness for sweets, though Moon Sugar is also a chief ingredient in Skooma, an infamous narcotic banned in the Empire.
