Snow Elves

Snow Elves are an ancient race whose history dates to the Mythic Era (Merethic Era), which predates the First Era. Their civilisation rivalled that of the Altmer in Summerset Isle. They resemble white-haired, pale Altmer, and have very long lifespans, as well as a strong resistance to frost. Legends say they favour spears and archery in combat.

Snow Elves are able to live for thousands of years and are possibly immortal. Their longevity has been assumed to be because of their devout worship of Auri-El.
