Faded Wraith
A weaker form of wraith, with a translucent appearance.
The Falmer are twisted, blind creatures that live deep beneath the surface of Skyrim. The hostile monsters inhabit underground areas, primarily Dwemer ruins, where they are known to stalk and attack intruders. Adventurers can often tell quickly when the Falmer inhabit a place thanks to their repulsive stench. They have been known to come up to the surface to attack the unwary. They are roughly man-sized, but hunched over and "ugly". For garments, they wear only rags and leathers. They have no noses, only long slits for nostrils. Their ears are distinctly pointed, their skin pallid, and their eyes lifeless and black. They have some form of civilization (building crude housing and traps, keeping livestock, clothing, weapons, tools, utilizing magic, etc.), but nothing compared to their once-great ancestors.
Much like how "High Elf" and "Wood Elf" are interchangeable terms for "Altmer" and "Bosmer" respectively, "Falmer" is really just another term for "Snow Elf", a proud and prosperous race of mer who had occupied a portion of modern-day Skyrim until they were displaced by the Nords. Many of the ancient Snow Elves were betrayed in a deal for asylum they struck with the Dwemer. The Dwemer forced their wards to subsist only on toxic fungi which twisted them into sightless slaves. It's the hideous descendants of these slaves who many of the people of Tamriel have come to know as Falmer. People often refer to the grand ancient race of Skyrim elves as Snow Elves, and to their barbaric remnants as Falmer.
Few know that an unknown number of civilized Snow Elves rejected the Dwemer's deal and went into hiding; even fewer know that some have survived, uncorrupted, into modern times. Knight-Paladin Gelebor of the Chantry of Auri-El, the only known and potentially last Snow Elf still alive today, embraced this distinction between "Falmer" and "Snow Elf" due to the negative connotations "Falmer" had taken on over the millennia. Of course, he didn't personally call his devolved brethren Falmer; he knew them as the Betrayed.
 Felsaad Tern

 Fire Atronach
The Fire Atronach is a magical, fire-enchanted golem. It is advised to use cold based spells when attacking one, as any fire spells actually heal the creature instead of damaging it. Be careful not to approach too closely, as it gives off great heat which can damage an adventurer if they get too close. The Fire Atronach should not be confused with the Flame Atronach, which is a daedra rather than a golem.

 Frost Atronach
This powerful Elemental Daedra not only causes damage with its vicious physical attacks, but also from the extreme cold aura it generates, which makes it immune to cold-based spells. Frost Atronachs can be summoned by mages, and are often hunted as a source of Frost Salts. It should not be confused with the Ice Atronach, which is a golem rather than a daedra. See also: Frost Daedra.

 Frostbite Spider
Frostbite Spiders are giant arachnids native to Skyrim. They can be found in their underground nests, or roaming the wilderness. Their lairs are often covered in webs, which can cause obstructions. They spit poisonous venom at their prey from a distance, and leap at them to attack with pincers if they get too close. Frostbite Venom is often harvested from the spiders for use as a poison. Spider Eggs can be taken from the sacs in their web for use in alchemy. See also: Spider
