The {{Lore Link|Bosmer}} are the Elven clan-folk of {{Lore Link|Valenwood}}, a forested province in southwestern {{Lore Link|Tamriel}}.{{ref|name=POT|{{Cite book|Provinces of Tamriel}}}} In the {{Lore Link|Empire}}, they are often referred to as '''Wood Elves''', but Bosmer,{{ref|name=PGE1P|{{Cite book|PGE|1|Prologue}}}} '''Boiche''',{{ref|name=TWE|{{Cite book|The Wild Elves}}}} or '''the Tree-Sap people''' is what they call themselves.{{ref|name=Morrowind|Events of [[MW:Morrowind|Morrowind]]}} Bosmer rejected the stiff, formal traditions of {{Lore Link|Aldmer}}i high culture, preferring a more romantic, simple existence in harmony with the land and its wild beauty and creatures. They are relatively nimble and quick in body compared to their more "civilized" {{Lore Link|Altmer}}i cousins (who often look down upon the Bosmer as unruly and naive). Their agility makes them well-suited as scouts and thieves.{{ref|name=VAS|{{Cite book|Valenwood: A Study}}}} However, they are also a quick-witted folk, and many pursue successful careers in scholarly pursuits or trading.{{ref|name=ASGTN|{{Cite book|A Scholar's Guide to Nymphs}}}}{{ref|name=ADIF1|{{Cite book|A Dance in Fire, Chapter 1}}}}{{ref|name=TBG|{{Cite book|The Buying Game}}}} Though they are considered less influential than some of their Elven brethren, the Bosmer are also relatively prone to producing offspring. As a result, they outnumber all other {{Lore Link|mer}} on Tamriel.{{ref|name=RM3TWE|{{Cite book|Racial Motifs 3: The Wood Elves}}}}
