Tamriel history from the Khajiit point of view

Post by Le Grimacier on Mon 13 May 2013, 2:52 pm

It is well-known that Khajiit never appear in official imperial chronicles but some elements show they had an active part in the making of Tamriel History. It could be interesting to rewrite some famous events but from the Khajiit point of view. We also have to find why they disappear from the chronicles.

The Khajiit, created as Servants by the Aldmer, Rebelled against the Natural Order and Conspired with the Doom Drum to End the Merethic Era.
-from a developer -
The Merethic Era end with the establishment of the kingdom of Valenwood. But at the same time, there was an immortal hero (Shezzarine) with many names (Harrald Hairy Breeks, Ysmir, Hans the Fox, etc...) wandering through Tamriel. We could imagine that Khajiit allied with him, and the Bosmer against Summerset Isles.

Alkosh repelled an early Aldmeri pogrom of Pelinal Whitestrake during mythic times
During this period, humanity was enslaved by Ayleids and cult of the Divine didn't exist as an institution so how Pelinal became the Knight of the Eight? Morihaus the minotaur was said to be the son of Kynareth. And what if Pelinal was allied with eight companions, one for each Divine? This Alkosh could be a Khajiit avatar who fought against the Ayleids. Pelinal is also a Shezzarine so it won't be surprising if they are allies.

the great Ash King rode Dro'Zira up the Red Mountain itself to strike at the heart of the Dunmer. Never is it mentioned how Dro'Zira pounced atop Dumalacath, the Dwarf-Orc, when he had his blade to the throat of the Ash King so that he could not speak.
Khajiit were also present during the War at the Red Mountain.

I'm sure we could find other events.

I like the idea of portraying it this way. But I kinda think they make free with history as much as they do with other peoples possessions. And not out of maliciousneess. But because they see nothing wrong with it. And it gives the tales a certain immediancy.

The Tale of Dro'Zira is a story about a defeat. An avatar of Alkosh and his army lost against Wulfarth and his thu'um. The survivors joined the Nord's army so Khajiit have been on the winner side at the end. But they lost again against the Dunmer few years later. History doesn't say if the survivors joined the Dunmer army... or became slaves.
