"—- the ohmes, or ‘man-faced’ khajiit, are those most commonly seen outside of the province, as most adventurers and diplomats come from this, the most discreet of the ‘breeds.’ —- A recent trend among the younger ohmes is the application of feline facial tattoos that make them resemble their more hideous and savage brethren."

"In the Merethic Era, when Ysgramor first set foot on Tamriel, his people brought with them a faith that worshipped animal gods. Certain scholars believe these primitive people actually worshipped the divines as we know them, just in the form of these totem animals. They deified the hawk, wolf, snake, moth, owl, whale, bear, fox, and the dragon. Every now and then you can stumble across the broken stone totems in the farther reaches of Skyrim. Foremost among all animals was the dragon. In the ancient Nordic tongue it was drah-gkon.”
