The Khajiit are the race of feline humanoids who originate from Elsweyr and one of the three races representing the Aldmeri Dominion. There are eight sub-species of bipedal Khajiit: The Suthay, the Ohmes, the Cathay, the Tojay, and the -raht (larger) version of each of those four.
The Suthay-raht are the most common breed, and at launch, all player-character and non-player-character Khajiit in The Elder Scrolls: Online will be Suthay-raht.
Khajiit are a proud feline race. Though they have a strange appearance they are known for their agility and ability to move stealthy. They are perfect thieves and assassins. However, they are also fearsome warriors, proficient with bladed weapons. They stand proudly at the forefront of every battle. They are infamous for their trade of moon sugar, which can be refined into skooma. Khajiit traders are often seen wandering Nirn. They were one of the first races of Tamriel.
