The Altmer are an elven race of Nirn living in the Summerset Isle. They are often called High Elves by other races and The Salache by the Ayleids. Altmer are often proud to a point of perceived arrogance.
The Altmer's smug self-assurance of superiority can be hard to bear. Deft, intelligent, and strong-willed, out of all known magic-using races, the Altmer are the most naturally gifted, but are also more vulnerable to it.
The High Elves are among the longest living and most intelligent races of Tamriel. Their life span can last from 200 to 300 years. Because of this they often become powerful magic users, having centuries in which to practice their art.
