The player can select from eight races, each with their own unique advantage. Customization is limited, with there only being one default model that is non-customizable per race and gender. Players will not normally be able to see the appearance of the playable character models unless they view them by seeing other players in Multiplayer. These appearances are listed below on the gallery.
- Imperials and Orcs are not playable in this game despite being available in Morrowind and Orcish NPCs existing.
- Khajiit and Argonians player models reuse the humanoid models that the other races use, and thus lack digitigrade legs. Argonian NPCs do however have digitigrade legs. A Khajiit model with digitigrade legs exists in the files.
