A bastard son of Emperor Uriel Septim VII, given the Archbishopric of The One in the Church of the Nine Divines. During Calaxes' reign as Archbishop, tensions grew between himself and the Emperor due to Calaxes' views on the secularity of government, and the Emperor's Legislation to limit the Church's Authority. Rumors grew that Calaxes was advocating a rebellion to establish a Theocracy, and soon afterwards he was assassinated on the 29th of Sun's Dusk 3E 398, in the Temple of the One, supposedly by Lady Benoch and the Imperial Guard because of the threat he represented.
 Calcelmo of Markarth (?b - ?d)

Calixto Corrium was an Imperial who lived a life of leisure in Windhelm during the Fourth Era. He used to go adventuring with his sister Lucilla until she passed away. After that, he settled down and opened Calixto's House of Curiosities to put on display the assortment of curiosities he had collected, such as The Book of Fate and Ysgramor's Soup Spoon. At one point, he was a member of the College of Winterhold. For more information, see the lore article.
Camaron, King of Sentinel, was born in 3E 368. Husband to Queen Akorithi, father of Aubk-i in 3E 386, Greklith in 3E 392, and Lhotun in 3E 393. He died at the Battle of Cryngaine Field in 3E 403, killed in a duel with Gothryd of Daggerfall that ended the War of Betony.
 King Camoran Anaxemes (?b - ?d)
Haymon Camoran (?-3E 267) is best known as the Camoran Usurper, but is also known as the Hart-King, or Haymon Hart-King. Originally one of the claimants to the throne of the Camoran Dynasty in Valenwood, together with Camoran Kaltos, who he initially served as advisor and sorcerer. After the conquering of most of Valenwood, disagreements with Camoran Kaltos over the Usurper's continued campaigning in Colovia caused him to turn on Kaltos. After a period of violent warfare throughout western Tamriel, affecting Valenwood, Colovia, Hammerfell and parts of High Rock, the Usurper's forces were finally defeated at Dwynnen in 3E 267 by forces from different High Rock kingdoms in a combined naval and land battle. For most of this war, Emperor Cephorus II was occupied in a civil war over the Imperial succession, and was not able to counter the Usurper's invasion.
His son had the same name as Mankar Camoran, which makes it seem as though they are one and the same. However, Mankar's race in Oblivion suggests otherwise (in Oblivion, he was an Altmer. However, the mother of Haymon's son was a Bosmer, as was the Usurper himself. According to Notes on Racial Phylogeny, the race of the mother is passed onto the son or daughter, furthering the argument that Mankar Camoran is not the son of Haymon Camoran).
 Casmyr Kreestrom (?b - ?d)
A popular author of the early Third Era.
When Cassynder became Emperor at the death of his mother, Empress Katariah, in 3E 200, he was already middle-aged. Only half-elven, he aged like a Breton. In fact, he had left the rule of Wayrest to his half-brother Uriel due to poor health. Nevertheless, as the only true blood relation of Pelagius, and thus Tiber Septim, he was pressed into accepting the throne. His rule was a short as he died after only two years on the throne in 3E 202 which was assumed by his half-brother, Uriel Lariat (Uriel IV).
 Cassyr Whitley (?b - ?d)
Breton who spied for Vivec in 1E 2920 during the Four-Score War but failed and gained a bad reputation across the continent. He hated Vivec for that and in an act of revenge lied to the mighty witch Turala about her child's killers in order to make her summon Mehrunes Dagon and destroy Old Mournhold.
 Empress Caula Voria (3E?b - ?d)
The wife of Uriel Septim VII who bore him his three legitimate sons, Princes Geldall, Enman and Ebel. One source suggests that she died a short time after the birth of their third child, some time between 3E 380 and 3E 382, while another indicates she was still alive after the Imperial Simulacrum, and so must still have been alive at least in the early years of the Third Era's Fifth Century.
 Celarus, Lore Master (?b - ?d)
Son of Emperor Pelagius II, brother to Potema, Magnus, and Antiochus. He was involved in the War of the Red Diamond in 3E 121. After capturing and the subsequent death of Emperor Uriel III in 3E 127 he continued onto the Imperial Palace and was crowned Emperor. Cephorus' reign is marked by nothing but war. By all accounts, he was a kind and intelligent man, but what Tamriel needed was a great warrior, and that he was. It still took an additional ten years of constant warfare for him to defeat his sister Potema. Cephorus died in 3E 140. Sources seem to differ on whether and when he married. Brief History of the Empire claims he never married during the many years he spent at war. The historical fiction The Wolf Queen suggests he eventually took a wife, a Redguard named Bianki, with whom he ruled Gilane, Hammerfell. The Madness of Pelagius states that he never married and died childless.
 Emperor Cephorus II (?b - ?d)
Cephorus II was chosen as emperor by vote of Council, since he was a cousin more closely related to the original Septim line than was Emperor Uriel IV's son, Andorak. For the first nine years of Cephorus II's reign, those loyal to Andorak battled the Imperial forces.
Of course, Cephorus II had foes that demanded more of his attention than Andorak. "From out of a nightmare", in the words of Eraintine, a man known as the Camoran Usurper (rumored to be a lich) had led an army of daedra and undead warriors on a rampage through Valenwood, conquering kingdom after kingdom. None could resist his onslaughts, and as month turned to bloody month, fewer even tried. Cephorus II sent more and more mercenaries into Hammerfell to stop the Usurper's northward march, but they were bribed, turned into undead, or slaughtered. In short, the destruction of the forces of the Usurper had little do with efforts of the Emperor. The result was a great regional victory and an increase in hostility toward the seemingly inefficacious Empire.
 Cherim (?b - ?d)
Cherim was a famous Khajiiti tapestry maker who lived in Orcrest during the late Third Era. At the height of his success he had four factories creating replicas of his works and his originals were sold for extraordinary prices. He was interviewed by Livillus Perus to discuss one of his first tapestries, the Heart of Anequina, depicting Cherim's involvement in the Heart of Anequina during the Five Year War.
 Cicero (?b - ?d)
Cicero was an Imperial assassin and Keeper of the Dark Brotherhood. As Keeper, he was responsible for caring for the Night Mother's body and casket. Little is known of him before 4E 186, when he arrived at the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary in Cheydinhal and started keeping a journal detailing some of his many contracts. When the Night Mother’s crypt in Bravil was desecrated, the coffin was brought to Cheydinhal, and Cicero was appointed Keeper. He was an accomplished assassin who was extremely deadly with a dagger, and while honored to become Keeper, he was reluctant to abandon his work. Before starting his new duties, he was allowed one last assassination, an unnamed jester whose laughter Cicero never forgot. As the Dark Brotherhood slowly deteriorated over the years, Cicero fled to Skyrim with the Night Mother's body, where one last chapter of the organization remained active. He hoped to find a haven for the Night Mother, and to find a Listener who could rejuvenate the Brotherhood. For more information, see the lore article.
 Corda (?b - ?d)
She was a Redguard Morag Tong assassin from Hegathe, Hammerfell (but widely known as initiate of the Morwha conservatorium). Corda's sister, Rijja was executed by her former lover Reman III in 2920. After execution Corda became his next lover but she killed him as an act of revenge at the very end of the year. After that she was sent by Night Mother to Vounoura, an island for Morag Tong assassin's who became too famous to continue their crusade.
 Cormelik the Elder (?b - ?d)
Cormelik the Elder was a man who prophesized all of the returning points of Auriel's Shield. Despite the prophesy and a mighty warrior as he was Cormelik and his followers were unable to enter the true place himself. His knowledge of the location was later used by the Eternal Champion who was able to enter and retrieve Auriel's Shield.
 Count Csaran (?b - ?d)
Of the Shivering Isles, Count Csaran of Vitharn was a second generation Lord of Vitharn, the son Count Vitharn and Countess Mawean; he had one sibling: his sister, Nweala. When he ascended to the throne, he seemed a normal, competent ruler, and came to marry Sheen-in-Glade, an equally put-together wife to the count. However, his infidelity eventually caused Sheen-in-Glade to snap, and they began to sleep with one another less often (the only son Sheen-in-Glade bore disappeared from the Shivering Isles in his twentieth year). Csaran entered a physical relationship with his sister, Nweala, and sired a single son -- the heir apparent, Cesrien.
A petty king of the Colovian Estates of Cyrodiil, he attacked and captured the Imperial City to proclaim himself emperor. He was assassinated in 2E 854 by a High Rock nightblade. His death led to the crowning of General Talos, later known as Tiber Septim, who subsequently waged the Tiber Wars to create the Third Empire of Tamriel. Talos later honored him by founding the Cult of Emperor Zero to worship him.
 Cuilean Darnizhaan (?b - ?d)
Known for saying, "The power of ignorance can truly shatter mithril like glass."
 Cyril Vinticae (?b - ?d)
The governor of Dawnstar when it was besieged by the glacier tribes. Responsible for banishing the town's four champions, rightfully suspecting that one was a traitor in league with the tribes.
A Redguard hero of the rebellion on the Island of Stros M'Kai in 2E 864 along with his sister Iszara. The rebellion crushed the Imperial presence on the island, and Cyrus killed the provisional governor Amiel Richton, which led the way to a peace treaty more favorable to Hammerfell.
