The dro-m'Athra are former Khajiit whose spirits were corrupted by the Bent Dance, the drumming of the Dark Heart of Lorkhaj. They serve Namiira, the Great Darkness, and reside within the Dark Behind the World. It is considered bad for the humors to even think about the dro-m'Athra for too long, lest these dark spirits have a foothold from which to corrupt an individual. The Twilight Cantors usually arrive in their wake to drive them back. They are similar to shades. For more information, see the Lore Page.

- Dro-m'Athra used to look more like shadows than substantial beings in early versions of the game. With the release of the Maw of Lorkhaj as part of the Thieves Guild DLC in Update 9, the new shader was introduced. However, it was not immediately applied to all previously-existing dro-m'Athra, some of whom (such as the Dark Mane or Elder Sa-m'Athra) still use the old appearance.
