Lefthanded elves (aka Sinistral Mer) are a race featured in the Elder Scrolls series. They were inhabitants of Yokuda, before its destruction.


Lefthanded elves lived in the Redguard homeland of Yokuda. It is implied they were entirely destroyed by the Redguards in a war between the two races. The rest of them died with Yokuda. They are thought to have created the Orichalc Tower of Yokuda. The Lefthanded elves hadn't been reported to have reached the Abecean Isles, and therefore had died long before the Ayleids built the White-Gold Tower.

The Lefthanded Elves had at one point, formed an Empire that stretched across the entire continent of Yokuda (Before it was submerged). The Empire was said to be four times as large as the Septim Empire.


The Lefthanded elves are never seen, but since Yokuda was barren, hot and rocky, they likely had dark skin. They also probably had dark hair and eyes. Some Lefthanded elves may have had tattoos on them.


The Lefthanded Elves were very accustomed to desert living and their wizards could create cities out of the sand in minutes. The Redguards learned how to make scimitars and turbans from the Lefthanded elves. Other accomplishments of these elves were learning to defend against sandstorms, tunnel through the sand at an amazing rate, as well as creating armor from sand and sandstone.


Their is nothing known about Lefthanded elves religion. They likely worshiped the Yokudan Pantheon, much like the Redguard.
