Ysgramor was the first human to arrive in Tamriel, landing in Skyrim after fleeing civil war in his native continent of Atmora during the late Merethic Era. Becoming the first Nord king, Ysgramor would be driven out of Skyrim by the Snow Elves during the Night of Tears (which saw the ancient Nord city of Saarthal sacked) only to return with the Five Hundred Companions to retaliate against Elven oppression and tyranny.

Ysgramor was also credited with creating the first runic transcriptions for what would become Nordic language, based on principles adopted from Elven language, thus making him both the first literate human and first human scholar/historian.
