The [[Lore:Lefthanded Elves|Lefthanded Elves]] (or '''Left-Handed Elves'''), also known as '''Sinistral Mer''',{{ref|name=UAAYQ|{{Cite bookBook|The Unveiled Azadiyeh Answers Your Questions}}}} were a race of elves from [[Lore:Yokuda|Yokuda]]. They were the enemies of the [[Lore:Yokudan|Yokudans]] (ancient [[Lore:Redguard|Redguards]]) and fought with them for a thousand years. During the [[Lore:Mythic Era|Mythic Era]], the [[Lore:Na-Totambu|Na-Totambu]] (Yokudan royalty) fought to a standstill among themselves to decide who would lead the charge against the Lefthanded Elves. [[Lore:Leki|Leki]] intervened and a victor emerged, and war was subsequently declared on the Elves. [[Lore:Diagna|Diagna]], an avatar of the [[Lore:HoonDing|HoonDing]], brought {{Lore Link|Orichalcum|orichalc}} weapons to the Yokudans, which were instrumental in defeating the Elves.{{Ref|{{Cite bookBook|Varieties of Faith...}}}} The {{Lore Link|Ra Gada}}'s extermination of elven colonies along the coast of {{Lore Link|Hammerfell}} is due to their hatred of the Lefthanded Elves.{{Ref|name=ONLoad|[[Online:Loading Screens|Loading Screens]] in [[Online:Online|ESO]]}} The Redguards no longer speak of the Lefthanded Elves, as recalling the elves' abominations serves only to darken their days.{{ref|name=UAAYQ}}
The Lefthanded Elves' defeat by the Yokudans and the subsequent sinking of Yokuda imply that the race is extinct, although it has been speculated that there may be a link between them and the southern {{Lore Link|Maormer}}.{{ref|name=UAAYQ}}{{FMI}}<noinclude>
