Ra Abah (fl. 1E 8th century)Edit

Statue of Ra Abah on top of his tomb

A renowned Yokudan warrior who fought alongside Frandar Hunding in the War of the Singers against the armies of Emperor Hira.[1] In his elderly years he accompanied Prince Hubalajad in his sea travel from Herne to Khefrem's Boot. Near the shore, the prince was attacked by scouts of a local Nedic tribe before landing. Angered by the attack on the prince, Ra Abah left the ship and killed seven Nedes before Hubalajad and other warriors could join him. Due to the fact that Ra Abah was the first person to land. Prince Hubalajad named the place Abah's Landing in honor of the elderly warrior.[2] He was buried in the Valley of the Blades after his death.[1] The teachings of Ra Abah remained highly esteemed and were followed by Redguard swordmasters as late as 2E 582. They were listed alongside the teachings and principles of other Ansei such as Divad Hunding, Satameh, and Kalam. According to these teachings, while a warrior may refine their skills to excellence and sharpen their blade to cut through stone and steel effortlessly, the measure of a true swordsman lies in the caliber of adversaries they attract.[3]

Rada al-Saran (?b - 2E 582)Edit

Rada al-Saran was an ancient warrior who claimed to match the gods in the way of the sword. Born in Yokuda, he ventured to the bloody shores of Hammerfell to dedicate himself to perfecting his swordsmanship, and would first manifest his Shehai there. His commitment to perfection was necessary, as to gain glory back in Yokuda, where "peerless swordmasters were as common as grains of sand", he would need nothing less. According to legend, to challenge himself, he dueled Leki to a standstill. He would later go on to join the Gray Host in the First Era, and was responsible for the group's resurgence when he became a Vampire Lord by the title of the Ashen Lord during the Interregnum.

Radac Stungnthumz (fl. before 1E 700)Edit

Radac Stungnthumz was a Dwemer weaponsmith and soldier who inhabited Bamz-Amschend. Although he was merely a warrior and craftsman, he was remembered as a powerful mystic and author of ancient texts. After his death, he remained as a ghost and played a crucial role in the process of reforging and reigniting the Trueflame, a legendary weapon of Nerevar.

Raerlas Ghile (fl. before 3E 427)Edit

Raerlas Ghile was a legendary ranger who was granted the powerful artifact of Nocturnal, the Bow of Shadows for a secret mission that ultimately failed. Upon the failure of the mission Raerlas did not go down without a fight and with the aid of the bow was said to have taken scores of his foes down with him.[4][5]

Rahgot (?b - 4E 201)Edit

Rahgot, whose name means "Rage" in the Dragon language, was an ancient Dragon Priest of Skyrim. He led the last remnants of the Dragon Cult from the secluded monastery of Forelhost high in the Jerall Mountains until 1E 140. After the defeat of Alduin during the Dragon War, the ruling Dragon Priests were overthrown. Several sects of the Dragon Cult adapted and survived by going into hiding all across Skyrim. Many held the belief that Alduin would one day return and resurrect the faithful. Rahgot and his cultists were one such sect, and until that day they chose to bide their time within Forelhost.

King Ralethiel Direnni (fl. early 1E)Edit

King Ralethiel of Clan Direnni was the ruler of the Altmeri-controlled High Rock, during the times of the conflict between the Clan Direnni and Alessian Order of Cyrodiil.

With the rise of the Alessian Order in Cyrodiil in 1E 361, many Ayleids fleeing Cyrodiil migrated to High Rock to escape the order in an exodus known as the Ayleid Diaspora, which may have strengthened Clan Direnni as these immigrants were absorbed into their hegemony. When Laloriaran Dynar and his people arrived at the Bjoulsae in 1E 375, they were welcomed by the Direnni and given a place to settle. During the reign of Ralethiel, many Ayleids hoped to aid the Direnni against the Alessians, hoping to get lands from the king as a reward. One such Ayleid was betrayed by his brothers and prevented from participating in the war. He was bound in the Dresan Keep in Glenumbra, and was not able to witness and the Direnni victories, notably the Battle of Glenumbra Moors.

The ghost of the Ralethiel's supporter was ultimately freed in 2E 582 by an adventurer, but it is unknown whether he passed to Aetherius or remained in Nirn.

Randic Torn (?b - 1E 737)Edit

Randic Torn was a commoner who took over the government of Yokuda after the assassination of Mansel Sesnit in 1E 617. He tried to continue the work of Sesnit and unify the Yokudan Empire after almost three centuries of internal conflict. He revived the age-old rift between the sword singers and the commoners by introducing restrictions on the wearing of swords. "Torn's Sword-Hunt", as it was known, meant that only the singers were allowed to wear swords, which distinguished them from the rest of the population. Although Torn did much to settle the empire into its pre-strife ways, by the time of his death in 1E 737 internal disturbances still had not been completely eliminated. Upon his death, a vicious civil war broke out.[6][7]

Ranev the Coal-Eyed Wanderer (fl. Merethic Era or early 1E)Edit

Ranev was a mythical Nedic heroine that lived in the wilderlands of Craglorn, in what is now the province of Hammerfell. Known widely as Ranev the Coal-Eyed Wanderer, she was a renowned warrior and skilled spear-maiden. Some of her exploits include her triumphant victory in the Autumn of Snakes and her pilgrimage on the Gray Passage, where she earned the moniker Ranev the Favored of the Stars.

Commander Rangidil Ketil (2E 803 - 3E 195)Edit

Rangidil Ketil, the thrice-blessed, was a Dunmer and the commander of the Temple Ordinators. His most renowned accomplishment was defeating Dagoth Thras in Abernanit.

King Ranser (?b - 2E 567)Edit

King Ranser was the ruler of Shornhelm, crowned after the death of his father King Hurlburt of House Branquette in 2E 546. He was illegitimate, born to "a poor Tamrith cousin", and had to compete with his legitimate younger brother Prince Phylgeon Montclair for their father's throne. The fourteen-year-old Phylgeon was descended from House Montclair, and his claim was supported by the codicil to the "Bretonnick Natalitie", which declared "Howse Mount Clayre" the royal house of Shornhelm. However, the codicil was missing when the Council of the North met to discuss the two claimants. Prince Ranser presented a long-lost Direnni decree that named House Branquette their "Breton Royal Delegates" in Rivenspire, winning the crown by the vote of the Council.

Ranser had a daughter named Princess Rayelle, whom King Emeric of Wayrest courted before marrying Maraya in the spring of 2E 566. Furious, he called back his ambassador from Wayrest, staying in Shornhelm when he was invited to Emeric's wedding. In Last Seed of the year, he launched a surprise siege on Wayrest, sparking what is now called Ranser's War. His army consisted of mercenaries, his own people, along with the noble houses of Rivenspire that he forced to fight under his banner. House Tamrith was the first to cease its support and called for peace, followed by House Dorell, while House Ravenwatch remained neutral throughout the war. House Montclair only surrendered to Wayrest right before the Battle of Traitor's Tor. Unsure if his brother's actions were righteous, Count Phylgeon offered to serve as a peace envoy to both Emeric and Ranser, but the latter angrily refused, insistent on winning the war. Overcome by the combined forces of Bretons, Redguards, and Orcs, Ranser's remaining troops were slain at Markwasten Moor, and the end of the conflict gave rise to the Greater Daggerfall Covenant. The Crown of Shornhelm as well as the Direnni decree had not been seen since the Battle of Traitor's Tor.

While Ranser himself is thought to be dead, he fled from Markwasten Moor with a small troop of his most loyal soldiers. He prepared a ritual atop a then-nameless tor overlooking Shornhelm, during which he was murdered by his own general. Ranser's blood served as the sacrifice needed for the ritual, transforming him and his warriors into skeletal undead, and the tor from which he ruled became known as Traitor's Tor.

The Rat (fl. 2E 564 - 582)Edit

The Rat was a former advisor to Emperor Leovic, who remained hiding in the Imperial City after his emperor was deposed. His extensive knowledge of the hidden passages within the city was instrumental in defending the capital from the attack of the forces of Molag Bal in 2E 582.

Raven Direnni (fl. 1E 5th century)Edit

Raven Direnni was an Altmer noblewoman. She is often mentioned alongside her better-known cousins, Aiden and Ryain Direnni, all of whom played a major role in the historical Battle of Glenumbra Moors, but beyond that, she is sometimes accredited as the creator of enchanting, a magical discipline in which you use a soul gem to embed magical powers into an inanimate object.

Raxle Berne (? - 3E 427)Edit

Raxle Berne was an Imperial vampire and the patriarch of the Berne Clan of Vvardenfell. He occupied the Dwemer ruin of Galom Daeus, which functioned as the fortress of his clan.

Princess Rayelle (fl. 2E 563 - 566)Edit

Rayelle was a Breton noblewoman from the Kingdom of Rivenspire. She was the daughter of King Ranser, the twenty-second and last monarch of House Branquette's line in Shornhelm. Rayelle was originally set to marry High King Emeric of Wayrest but was denied when the latter chose Princess Maraya of Sentinel. Her rejection was what sparked Ranser's War, a civil war between Rivenspire and the Daggerfall Covenant at large.

Razotha Tale-Teller (fl. before 2E 582)Edit

Razotha Tale-Teller was a renowned Orcish bard, historian, and storyteller of legendary status. She defied the conventional Orcish reliance on oral tradition by favoring the written word. Despite being acknowledged as the greatest storyteller of her age, Razotha sought a lasting legacy for her narratives. To ensure their enduring presence, she commissioned an Altmer wizard to enchant a black feather obtained from a hagraven, birthing the legendary Black Quill, a bardic writing instrument that supposedly prevented anything written down with it from being forgotten.

Yokeda Razul (fl. 1E 808)Edit

Yokeda Razul was a powerful Yokudan warrior who fought alongside Divad Hunding and played a significant role among the leaders of the Ra Gada forces during the conquest of Alik'r. Some sources also regard him as the first of the Forebears.

Razum-dar (fl. 2E 582)Edit

Razum-dar (known as Raz to his companions) was a Khajiit spy who was active during the Interregnum in the Second Era. Razum-dar, though well-known during this time, was a member of the Eyes of the Queen—the secret intelligence network that served Queen Ayrenn of the First Aldmeri Dominion.

Red Bramman (?b - 1E 1033)Edit

Red Bramman, also known as the Bandit King, was an infamous First Era brigand based in Black Marsh who gained notoriety due to his piracy against the Alessian Empire in Topal Bay. He was an Argonian, but was documented by Imperial historians as one of the first men to venture deep into the Marsh. Bramman earned the nickname "Red" due to his red hair, which he possessed despite being an Argonian.

Bramman and other brigands used the swamplands of Black Marsh to disappear without recourse after raiding the easily accessible riches of the Empire. Bramman established a bandit kingdom deep within the swamps, near the site of the future city of Blackrose. It was connected to Topal Bay by a narrow, winding river that emptied into the Bay near Soulrest, and was shrouded from view by mangroves. According to Imperial accounts, Bramman and similar human brigands were the first contact most Argonians had with Imperial civilisation. They raped, pillaged, and enslaved the natives, causing Argonians to become skittish of the Alessian Empire.

In 1E 1033, Empress Hestra demanded Red Bramman's head. After many unsuccessful battles in Topal Bay, the Imperial Navy discovered Bramman's river and sent a fleet to catch Bramman in his brigand kingdom in what became known as the Raid of Red Bramman. The crew of the vessel known as Dominus Fatum was responsible for his capture. His head was brought before the Empress, but more importantly the fleet's expedition resulted in the Empire's first reliable accounts of Argonian culture. The Imperials attempted to settle along the pirate routes and were successful in driving the pirates out of Black Marsh, but the province was largely left alone until its eventual conquering by the Second Empire centuries later.

Red Eagle (?b - 1E 1030)Edit

Red Eagle, or Faolan in the language of the Reach, also known as King of the Reach, Lord of the Reach, High Lord of the Reach, and Diamond's Doom was an ancient king who, armed with a flaming sword, rallied his people and drove back the armies of Cyrodiil in the First Era. Over time, accounts of Red Eagle have become distorted and embellished, but they seem to be based on truth: the Imperial chronicles of Empress Hestra mention a rebel leader who was eventually cornered and slain in battle around the year 1E 1030, at the cost of a full legion of men. Curiously, stories of a similar king and his legendary blade appear in other ancient myths of the Reach.

Count Regulus Terentius (fl. 3E 433)Edit

Imperial ruler of Bravil during the Oblivion Crisis. He was a tournament champion when he was younger, but as Count, he was unpopular due to his drinking and superior attitude, as well as his skooma addict son Gellius.[8][9][10]

Regulus Tharn (fl. late 1E)Edit

Regulus Tharn was an Imperial member of the royal House Tharn of Cheydinhal, ancestor and descendant of numerous famous figures. He was one of many members of the Tharn family who served nobly and well under the Emperors of the Reman Dynasty. He was paramount in reviving the tradition of the Imperial Battlemages during his times.

Relmyna Verenim (fl. 3E 433)Edit

Relmyna Verenim was a Dunmer resident of the Shivering Isles at the end of the Third Era. She was originally from Tamriel, which is where she discovered the so-called "Sixth Element": Flesh. She was expelled from the Mages Guild due to the extreme nature of her experiments. Sheogorath invited her to his Realm, where she could continue her research free of scrutiny. Because of this, she developed a passionate—and obsessive—love for the Daedric Prince.

Relmyna was responsible for creating the first Gatekeeper. After many failed attempts she accomplished this by using the magical ingredients of the Gardens of Flesh and Bone to give life to several enchanted body parts stitched together to form a body. Using Sheogorath's divine madness as the seed, Relmyna birthed the creature. Her tears and the bones of a previous Gatekeeper were used to slay the creature in 3E 433.

After the death of her "child", Relmyna and her apprentice Nanette Don retired to her home, the ruins of Xaselm. There she resumed her study on the nature of Pain. Later that year, the Fringe was invaded by the Forces of Order. Sheogorath's Champion was sent to help Relmyna construct another Gatekeeper. The sorceress was hesitant at first due to the Champion's direct involvement with the death of the original. Relmyna and the Champion created the new Gatekeeper using a Daedric binding ritual, which helped to contain the Order which had taken over the Fringe.

Relonikiv (Dawn Era - 4E 201)Edit

Relonikiv was a dragon whose name meant "Dominate-Enlightenment" in the Dragon Language.

Little is known about Relonikiv's past. At a certain point in history, he swore allegiance to Miraak, though whether he did so willingly or was compelled through Miraak's mastery of Thu'um is unknown.

In 4E 201, the Last Dragonborn traveled to Apocrypha to challenge Miraak. Through the use of the Thu'um, they swayed a dragon Sahrotaar to betray Miraak. He helped them to reach the First Dragonborn on the summit of Apocrypha where the Last Dragonborn confronted Miraak. It was there where he called the mighty dragons Relonikiv and Kruziikrel to aid him in the battle. During the fight Miraak absorbed Relonikiv's soul to regain vitality, killing him in the process. Having had his soul devoured by another dovah, Relonikiv was killed permanently and cannot be raised again.

Emperor Reman (?b - 1E 2762)Edit

Reman Cyrodiil (sometimes enumerated as Reman I), called the Worldly God, was a cultural god-hero of the Second Empire, founder of the Reman Dynasty, and the greatest hero of the Akaviri Trouble of 1E 2703. His name, Reman, means "Light of Man". Contrary to popular belief, the province of Cyrodiil was not named after him; rather, he adopted the ancient Ayleid name for the province, Cyrod, as his surname.

Emperor Reman II (1E 2794 - 1E 2851)Edit

Reman II was the third emperor of the Reman Dynasty. Historical records vary on the exact year of his birth. It's believed he assumed the throne around 1E 2804, following the deposition of his widely disliked predecessor, Emperor Kastav.

Said to be a master tactician, he frequently studied records of the battles he fought. When he conquered new territory for the Empire, he carefully established rule, and avoided causing too much disruption to local customs, traditions, and particularly to established trade. He gathered advisers from each province, and focused on his people more than many emperors ever had. As a result, Imperial culture spread across Tamriel, not through forced assimilation but free will as citizens came to accept and support the Empire by reaping the benefits of free trade, stability, and the development of better infrastructure. For many years peace prevailed across Tamriel, and many attribute his reign as the golden age of the Second Empire.

Emperor Reman III (?b - 1E 2920)Edit

Reman III was the fifth and final emperor of the Reman Dynasty. He was born in 1E 2863. In 1E 2877, Emperor Brazollus Dor suddenly died, so Reman was crowned emperor at the age of fourteen. Reman III's exact relation to his predecessor is unclear, but Brazollus Dor was reportedly his ancestor. Brazollus Dor's estate, known as Villa Doria, had served as the Imperial Court for the twenty years preceding Reman III's reign, but shortly after his accession, Reman returned the Imperial Court to the Imperial City so that he could exercise power in his own name.

At some point prior to 1E 2899, he married Tavia, who came from a wealthy background and had powerful allies in Colovia. Reman III had a son named Juilek. In 1E 2899, the Emperor had Tavia imprisoned in the city of Gideon for purportedly plotting against him. For the next fourteen years, the Empress was moved from castle to castle, until she was finally imprisoned at Castle Giovesse in 1E 2913.

At some point during his reign, Reman III hunted down and slew dragons with his Dragonguard bodyguards.

During the Four-Score War with Morrowind, Reman III commanded the rearguard of the Imperial Army at the Battle of Bodrum on 20 First Seed, 1E 2920. At the Battle of Bodrum, the Imperial Army was defeated when the commander of the Dunmer army, Vivec, ordered his battlemages to cast spells at a dam built on the Pryai River, destroying the dam, washing away the Imperial vanguard, and forcing the Emperor to order the remains of the army to retreat. In Sun's Height 1E 2920, Reman III took advantage of Crown Prince Juilek's negotiations with Vivec to have the Imperial Army attack and capture the strategically located fortress of Black Gate. On 31 Last Seed, 1E 2920, Prince Juilek was assassinated in the Dorsza Pass. On 6 Sun's Dusk, 2920, the Emperor and Vivec finalized the terms of a treaty to end the Four-Score War, and they agreed to sign the treaty one month later at the Imperial Palace.

On 6 Evening Star, 1E 2920, Emperor Reman III was assassinated by the Morag Tong in the audience chamber of the Imperial Palace. It is believed that his potentate, Versidue-Shaie, ordered the assassination. On 8 Evening Star, 1E 2920, Versidue-Shaie and Vivec signed the Cervant Truce, ending the Four-Score War. On 22 Evening Star, 1E 2920, Versidue-Shaie proclaimed that Reman's line was dead and that he would be taking over rulership of the Empire but retaining his title of potentate. The Potentate also proclaimed the end of the First Era and the beginning of the Second Era. Following this, the Second Empire entered the period known as the Akaviri Potentate.

He was entombed with the Amulet of Kings in the innermost chamber of the Tomb of the Reman Emperors in Sancre Tor. In 2E 852, Talos Stormcrown reputedly recovered the Amulet of Kings from the tomb of Reman III.

King Reman Karoodil (fl. 3E 405 - 418)Edit

Altmer king of Firsthold, on Auridon in the Summerset Isles.[UOL 1] He lost a son sometime before 3E 405, and Morgiah, the Dunmer princess of Wayrest, decided to take advantage of the situation. She contacted the King of Worms, a powerful necromancer, and persuaded him to arrange a conversation between Karoodil and his dead son. Out of gratitude, Karoodil agreed to marry Morgiah, making her the queen of Firsthold.[11] The Altmer populace were unhappy with a Dunmer ruler, however, and while Karoodil was away leading a raid on local pirates in Calluis Lar, a revolt broke out. Morgiah was able to defeat it, and when the king returned he had the lead conspirators tortured and exiled.[12]

Reynir (fl. late Merethic Era)Edit

Reynir, also known as Reynir the Destroyer, was a great Atmoran warrior who lived in Saarthal around the time of Ysgramor in the Merethic Era. He was said to have survived the Night of Tears and sailed back to Skyrim with the Five Hundred Companions on the ship commanded by Ylgar, son of Ysgramor. After he died, he was interred in the Hall of the Dead beneath Windhelm.

During the mid-Second Era, the priests who tended to his crypt noted that he had risen as a powerful Draugr and retained some semblance of his intellect in life, but his humanity has been subsumed by the madness. As such he was no less than a hateful, undead creature who delighted in the suffering of others. As such, a warning was announced to not disturb his slumber. Despite this he was briefly awoken when the Vestige ventured into the crypts in search of Lodur's Crown, but was ultimately defeated.

Armiger Rhina (1E 954 - 1E 980)Edit

Armiger Rhina was a Redguard member of the Order of Diagna who spent her entire twenty-six years fighting the Orcs during the Siege of Orsinium, where her sacrifice was said to have brought the Redguards victory. She was remembered as one of the people who changed the course of Redguard history.

Rhogar the Destroyer (fl. before 2E 582)Edit

Rhogar the Destroyer was a figure present in legends and myths of the Orc branch of the cult of Trinimac. Rhogar features in the Orsimer religious scripture The Book of the Warrior God in the passage devoted to the heroine Vaia, the Vaia's Courage. Rhogar is also present in another passage from the same book,[nb 2] and in the text by Venerable Uugus.

Rhogar was said to wield a powerful enchanted hammer. Using its power they shattered entire armies. At a certain point, Rhogar stood against Vaia, who wielded a simple shield of the ash wood. Despite Rhogars' power and superior weapon, Vaia stood her ground as the hammer fell. Holding her shield above her head and believing that Trinimac watched over her, her resolve was not dampened. After a loud crash, Rhogars' mighty hammer was shattered and the small wooden shield survived and managed to repel the blow. Over the ages, the shield became a symbol. Vaia's Golden Ash - the image of the ash tree, became the symbol of the strength, heritage, and unity of the Orsimer people.

Ria Silmane (?b - 3E 389)Edit

Ria Silmane was the apprentice of Jagar Tharn, who sought to disappear and impersonate Emperor Uriel Septim VII. To avoid suspicion of his own disappearance, Tharn convinced the Emperor that he was going to take a leave of absence to pursue magical studies, and the Elder Council to allow Silmane to take his place as the Imperial Battle Mage of Tamriel. After Tharn accomplished this goal, he murdered Ria with the Staff of Chaos when she attempted to warn the Elder Council of his plot. However, her ghost appeared to King Eadwyre in a dream and revealed to him that the true Emperor had been kidnapped by Tharn and imprisoned in an alternate dimension.

Rid-Thar-ri'Datta (fl. 2E 311 - 326)Edit

Rid-Thar-ri'Datta was the Mane of Elsweyr during the early-mid Second Era. Rid-Thar-ri'Datta is referred to as the first Mane, a spiritual leader of Elsweyr that paved the way for a moon-based culture and veneration for the cosmic deity of order, Riddle'Thar.

Legate Rikke (fl. 4E 201)Edit

Legate Rikke is a Cyro-Nord commander of the Imperial Legion during the Stormcloak Rebellion. The Legate followed in the footsteps of her parents, who were also Legionnaires. During the Great War, she fought side-by-side with Ulfric Stormcloak and many others who would later become Stormcloaks. Though she came to believe Ulfric was a self-serving ego-maniac, she once counted him and many of his followers as friends. She held a great deal of anger toward Ulfric, as she believed the Empire was the best chance at victory against the Thalmor, but also deeply saddened by his decisions. She continued to worship Talos privately despite the White-Gold Concordat.

During the Stormcloak Rebellion, she was the chief lieutenant of General Tullius, who ran the Empire's campaign. She was his closest adviser and strategist, and often gave him insights on Nordic culture that he, a Cyrodiil-born Imperial, did not know or fully appreciate. They had disagreements, but she believed Tullius was the best hope for Skyrim and the Empire. Rikke had a great many duties, including local recruiting in Solitude, though she frequently found herself fighting, coordinating scouts, and manipulating enemy intelligence on the front lines.

High Kinlord Rilis IV (fl. before 2E 582)Edit

Rilis IV was an Altmer noble that ruled the city of Firsthold in ancient history as a member of House Rilis. Much like the rest of his family, he is described as a proud warrior. Prior to its abandonment after Rilis XII's reign, Rilis IV and his family lived in Castle Rilis just northeast of the city and on the coast.

High Kinlord Rilis XII (?b - 2E 582)Edit

Rilis XII was an Altmer noble from the early-mid Second Era. In life, he was the High Kinlord of Firsthold and ruler of the island, Auridon. Early in his reign, he was seen as a hero among his people and an instrument to bring peace to the island. And one of his most recognized actions at the time was giving Vanus Galerion the opportunity to start the first Mages Guild in his city. Later in life, he developed a thirst for power that would eventually bring about his downfall.

Saint Rilms the Barefooted (fl. before 3E 427)Edit

Saint Rilms is the Dunmeri patron of Pilgrims and Beggars. Saint Rilms gave away her shoes, then dressed and appeared as a beggar to better acquaint herself with the poor.[13] Her shoes are now a prized relic of the Tribunal Temple.[14]

High Magistrate Rinwaray (fl. 2E 582)Edit

High Magistrate Rinwaray of the Divine Prosecution (posing under the identity of Penewen with an enchanted jeweled brooch) manipulated Telenger the Artificer to use his teleportation device, the Hyperagonal Locational Determinator, to teleport her into the Clockwork City. There she planned to find Seht's Affect Inducer, a magical device originally entrusted to Barilzar that can manipulate a person's emotions. She planned to use it on Proxy Queen Alwinarwe for her own political gain and to revert the Summerset Isles to isolationism. Her efforts were stopped when Razum-dar caught wind of her plot and followed her tracks through the Clockwork City, the Evergloam, Artaeum (accidentally), and eventually caught her in Alinor where he managed to subdue her and now awaits the Queen's judgement.

Tutor Riparius (?b - ?d)Edit

Tutor Riparius is a being created by Demiprince Fa-Nuit-Hen to tend for his needs. He assumes the form of Dremora, though he also was referred to as a factotum. He assists the Demiprince with his memory issues when he dreams and physically changes as with his requirements, even creating clones of himself.[15] He possesses advanced scrying capabilities, having knowledge of Tiber Septim's ascension centuries before it occurred.[16]

Ri'saad (fl. 4E 201)Edit

Ri'saad is the leader and patriarch of the Khajiit Caravans, a group of itinerant merchants based in Skyrim. Ri'saad is an opportunist, originally from Elsweyr, he sought to make a profit in Skyrim during the Civil War and the Dragon Crisis. All of the Khajiit caravaneers in Skyrim answered to Ri'saad, he was seen as a kind patriarch. He was richest of the three caravan merchants and had exclusive contracts among Skyrim's wealthiest cities. He was a known owner of the Daedric artifact, the Ring of Khajiit.

Ri'saad has previously assisted the author Adonato Leotelli. In 4E 201, Ri'saad sought out help from the Last Dragonborn on several occasions. Most notably, he once explained that his caravan had been beset by two strange new groups of bandits wearing golden and dark armor. Which led to the Dragonborn uncovering the plot of the mad mage Thoron. Ri'saad rewarded the Dragonborn after they took care of the bandits. Additionally, Ri'saad and the Dragonborn secured an alliance between the Khajiit Caravans and the Thieves Guild. Ri'saad himself may have assisted the Dragonborn by rooting out a Thalmor assassin who was after an associate of the Dragonborn, Malborn, inadvertently saving Malborn's life.

Rislav Larich (1E 448 - ?d)Edit

Rislav Larich, better known as Rislav the Righteous, was born in Skingrad in 1E 448, the eighth child and fourth son of Queen Lynada and King Mhorus of Skingrad. He is believed to have led the typical life of a Colovian prince. He married Belene, the daughter of King Justinius of Kvatch, becoming a Count of Kvatch, presumably to cement peace between the kingdoms. In 1E 478, a plague passed through Cyrodiil and decimated the royal family of Skingrad; in the end, only Rislav and his older brother Dorald, a priest of Marukh, survived. Dorald's first act was to cede the kingdom to the Alessian Empire, which incensed Rislav. He led a small band of cavalry from Kvatch to Skingrad, where they entered the city without conflict (as the guards of Skingrad were also offended by Dorald's act). In the castle courtyard, Rislav denounced Dorald and beheaded him with one stroke, and he was quickly crowned as the new King of Skingrad.

However, Emperor Gorieus believed this did not revoke Dorald's action, and rode to Skingrad with a massive army to claim the city. When they arrived, Rislav famously told the Emperor that his party was too large to be accommodated, and that next time, he should write before he comes. A battle quickly ensued, which the Colovian forces won handily thanks to superior tactics. Gorieus' crippled army was forced to retreat, and this dramatic defeat proved to be the beginning of the end of the Alessian Empire.

Rites Matron (fl. 2E 82 - 2E 582)Edit

The Rites Matron of the Spiritblood Clan was a Reachfolk witch and overseer of the Vateshran's Rites performed in the ancient caves of the Vateshran Hollows, which served as the clan's coming of age trials, as well as the trials for the chieftains.

Rjorn (fl. 2E)Edit

Rjorn was a Nord musician in the Second Era. He was a famous war drummer that traveled often to write stories and his drum was a valued artifact among bards. At some point in time, he disappeared from the public eye and no one knew where he died.[17] In 4E 201, someone found the drum in Halldir's Cairn, a cave near the provincial border in Falkreath Hold and the Bards College sent one of their members to retrieve it. The drum was brought to the college's dean of history, Giraud Gemane, who had been looking for the drum for twenty years.[18]

Countess Rona Hassildor (?b - 3E 433)Edit

Countess Rona Hassildor of Skingrad was an Imperial and the wife of Count Janus Hassildor, ruler of County Skingrad at the end of the Third Era. Like her husband, Rona was stricken with vampirism, but unlike her husband she could not adjust to her new condition. Instead, she refused to feed on blood and gradually slipped into a state of coma, unable to die due to the immortality granted to her by her undead state. She was left to rest in a hidden passage within Castle Skingrad known as the Chamber of the Lost, where she remained for around fifty years. Circa 3E 433, Janus tasked the former Glenmoril witch named Melisande with curing Rona of her vampirism, thereby allowing her to finally die. Through magical means, Melisande revived Rona just long enough for the two to say their final farewell and for her to drink the cure. After many years of refusing to feed, her weakened state caused Rona to immediately perish upon regaining her mortality.[19][20]

Saint Roris the Martyr (?b - 3E 395)Edit

Saint Roris the Martyr is the Dunmeri patron saint of Furnishers and Caravaners. Roris was captured by Argonians before the Arnesian War, and he was subsequently tortured by Argonian sorcerers for not renouncing his faith in the Tribunal. His death was the cause of the Arnesian War as the Dunmer wanted justice and vengeance. Roris was later canonized by the Tribunal, and shrines to him could be found in Tribunal temples. He was the most recent saint until Jiub's canonization. His robe is now a prized relic of the Tribunal Temple.

Rozaba af-Nizhadal (fl. before 2E 582)Edit

Rozaba af-Nizhadal was a famous Redguard conjuration mage. She was known to conjure and ride Iron Atronach camels across the deserts of Hammerfell. She referred to these creatures as "glass-treaders", as the atronach's scorching feet left behind glass tracks wherever she rode.

By 2E 582, the art of conjuring Iron Atronachs shaped like camels was popularized among conjuration mages. At that time adventurers in Hammerfell were still finding glass tracks from where the atronach's scorching feet seared the sand.

Master Rrvenk (fl. 2E 582)Edit

Master Rrvenk was a Daedric sage and master of the Eleventh Force, the Change. Despite his form of a Banekin he was known to be wise and thoughtful. He is a well-known sage among the Daedra of the Deadlands, though only a few besides his disciples have ever seen him because he is always in motion. Mortals and Daedra alike sought his knowledge and advice, which he shared freely, although only for those who managed to find him, which is a troublesome task given that he never ceases to be in motion. He can read the flow of the Eleventh Force with such clarity that he's practically precognitive, though he does not attempt to alter its course.


Rusio Olo (fl. 2E)Edit

Rusio Olo was the third pillar of the Order of the Hour's original complement of warrior-priests. During his tenure, he was instrumental in ending the Order of the Black Worm's infestation of Kvatch in 2E 437. He was said to have dispatched eight cultists and their leader singlehandedly.

Former seer-mage of the Summerset Isle. Rynandor was one of the few survivors of the collapse of the Crystal Tower during the Oblivion Crisis and was one of the leaders of its defense and thus responsible for the death of many daedra during their successful attempt to raze the tower. Shortly after the Oblivion Crisis had subsided, he showed distrust towards the Thalmor when they claimed to be the ones who rid the Summerset Isle of the daedra horde. Due to the Thalmor's wide public support at this point in the Summerset Isle, they were able to denounce and exile him. Rynandor met a violent end shortly after his departure from Summerset Isle, likely at the hands of the Thalmor.[23]

Rythe Lythandas (fl. 3E 433 - 4E 201)Edit

He inherited the Brush of Truepaint from his father, which is the reason for his success. He was married to Tivela Lythandas. Circa 3E 433, a thief stole the brush from him and he became stuck in the Painted World. He once owned the enchanted Apron of Adroitness, which he gave to the Hero of Kvatch in return for retrieving the brush and saving him from the Painted World.[25] He survived the sack of Cheydinhal by the undead army of Umbriel, and had returned to live in the city by 4E 201. At that time, he was the sole provider of Painted Troll Fat, a rare alchemical ingredient.[26]

Rythe Verano (?b - 2E 582)Edit

Rythe Verano was one of the last of the Morag Tong who was a member before the Potentate assassinations, which would force the guild to go into hiding. He worked for centuries at restoring the reputation of the Morag Tong with the Great Houses, getting them to accept them once again as a legitimate organization, and would eventually become the Tong's grandmaster. He would be one of the people who were plotting within the Morag Tong. The plot involved a coup of the current Tong, and a list of goals, which if achieved, would transform the Tong into more than a mere league of assassins, it would make them powerful enough to allow them to replace the heads of state that were once able to force them to go into hiding. The plot was known as the Simulacrum Rubric, named after one of the items they sought to obtain, Sotha Sil's Simulacrum Rubric. It was orchestrated by him and seven other influential members of the Tong who called themselves the Seven Secretives.
