An elven race in the Elder Scrolls series. They originate from the province of Summerset Isle, a mysterious island to the south west of Tamriel.

Physically, Altmer (High Elves) are the tallest existing race on Tamriel, surpassing even Nord males. They are quite slim, with sharp facial features. They are distinguished as an elven race by their golden/green eyes and golden skin.

They are also considered to be the most magically adept race, surpassing the Dunmer and Bretons. They are also the oldest race on Tamriel, being the closest descendants of the ancient Aldmer race.

Altmer in personality are deemed haughty and arrogant, seeing themselves as a superior race. They are the leader of the Thalmor, and Aldmeri Dominion. Their involvement in the Great War lead the Empire to essentially surrender to them, when the White-Gold Concordat treaty was signed to prevent worship of Talos. Of course, rebellion was started by this, by a Nord male known as Ulfric Stormcloak, who planned on 'freeing' Skyrim from the Empire that Talos himself had created.
Wow, those Altmer are really great with magic

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.
