Book Information
Seen In:
A Child's Tamriel Bestiary
by Shane gro-Orath (Clever, no? Ha, ha!)
A children's rhyming alphabet book

A is for Alit, a two-legged lizard
With enough underbite to swallow a wizard

B is for Banekin, a mean Daedric minion
Whose masters are found on the planes of Oblivion

C is for Chaurus, big bug of the snow lands
Don't try to pet, or he'll snip off your hands!

D is for Duneripper, of desert so deep
It'll chomp off your legs from below as you sleep

E is for Eagle, so loved by the Elves
They plaster its image all over themselves

F is for Faded Wraith, haunting the tomb
Lurking in dark to deliver your doom

G is for Giant, of Skyrim I've heard
He keeps Woolly Mammoths, and tends to his herd

H is for Hoarvor, huge tick of the wood
That's eager to catch you and drain all your blood!

I is for Imp, an obnoxious pest
Who'll fry you with spells for the sake of a jest

J is for Jackal, who haunts Bangkorai
With mouth at the right height to nip out your eye

K is for Kwama, in Morrowind found
They live in bug tunnels far beneath the ground

L is for Lamia, snake-hag of the wild
Who hopes she might corner a lost little child

M is for Mudcrab, annoyance ubiquitous
Nasty, unpleasant, ugly, iniquitous

N is for Nix-Hounds, pack-hunting bugs
Alchemists render their flesh to make drugs

O is for Ogre, whose wits are quite dim
But if one should catch you, your prospects are grim

P is for Pigs, relatives of the Boars
That Wood Elves will ride instead of a horse

R is for Raven, dark Nocturnal's totem
I hear hers can talk, and then you can quote 'em!

S is for Spriggan, root, bark, and bough
It hides in that thicket—it's watching you now!

T is for Thunderbug, vast shocking beetle
Its pincers will get you, or its serrated feet'll

U is for Undead, necromancy's slaves
Apocalypse comes when they rise from their graves

V is for Vampire, ready to drill ya
'Cause she's got a case of Porphyric Hem'philia

W is for Wisp, evil glow-ball that beckons
Don't follow, or you'll be seen no more, I reckons

X is for Xivilai, Daedric assassin
Who'll pop off your head on a whim as he's passin'

Y is for Yokudan Warhorse, the Forebear
Knight's mount that he rides when he goes off to warfare

Z is for Zombies—you knew they'd be last
Run, don't be walking: a few are quite fast!
