Nords are known for their resistance to the cold. They are dedicated warriors and can be found in a range of martial professions throughout Tamriel. They excel in all manner of warfare and tend to emphasize the honour and glory of battle in their beliefs. Nordic warriors who have proven themselves in life are granted access to Sovengarde upon death. Here they enjoy the company of previous Nord heroes in the Hall of Valor.
The Nords, their culture and the the aesthetic surrounding it are based loosely on real world Scandinavian influences.
