Physical Description[edit]

The Argonians are a race of reptilian humanoids hailing from the province of Blackmarsh. They are known for an incredible resistance to disease and poison which allows them to survive in very harsh conditions, making them the perfect slaves for the Dunmer houses in Morrowind.


The argonians historicaly lived in black marsh and have some mysterious and unknown connection to the hist trees


Argonian society centers around a mysterious kind of tree known as the Hist. Argonians start as an egg and will need to form a connection with the hist in order to survive. After they hatch the hist would then give the newborn a soul as they drink the sap of the tree. This soul will return to the hist upon the death of the Argonian.

Argonian Language & Names[edit]

Argonian names, well translated from Jel will normally follow adjective-noun (like Dark-Scale, Small-Flower, etc) or a verb-adverb-noun (Swims-through-Swamp, Treads-at-night, etc)
