Mistral is a major port city on the island of Khenarthi's Roost inhabited by both Khajiit and Maormer.

Mistral is primarily a Khajiiti settlement due to Maormer distance for living on land,[1] and the city's architecture reflects this.[2] The island's inhabitants signed a peace treaty with the Maormer which allowed them to settle on the island.[3] Under this agreement, an Ambassador of King Orgnum would share power with the Mayor of Mistral. The treaty sought to end Maormer piracy in the region in return for fifteen percent of all registry fees and excises. The usually seafaring Maormer would occupy a full-time embassy in Mistral, and the Maormer festival of Serpent's Glory would be celebrated with a feast every year.[3] However, the wording of this treaty unfairly favored the Maormer, and acts of piracy continued.[4][5]

In 2E 582, when delegation from the first Aldmeri Dominion was sent to the island to invite the Khajiit of Khenarthi's Roost to join the alliance. The delegation was headed by the Silvenar Edhelorn and the Green Lady Finoriell, the embodiment of the Bosmer people. Viewing Khenarthi's Roost as Maormer territorial waters, Ambassador Ulondil was justifiably outraged at the Altmer proposition of the island joining the Dominion. The embassy refused to allow the delegates to view their treaty, forcing Dominion agents to steal it. Once the bias was revealed to Mayor Harrani, the Khajiit began to consider the Dominion's offer. Seeing that all hope was lost, the Maormer assassinated the Silvenar in Mistral and began a ritual to summon Storm-Slave, a powerful storm atronach, with the intention to destroy the city. The Dominion prevented this and drove the Maormer off, allowing the grateful Khajiit to join the alliance.[6]
