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 the Imperial Guard, because of the threat he represented.
 Calcelmo of Markarth (?b - ?d)
Calcelmo of Markarth, Scholar of Markarth, was an Altmer conjurer of great renown who dedicated himself to researching the Dwemer. He and his nephew Aicantar studied the Dwemer ruins beneath Markarth. He is the author of the series of books known simply as Dwarves. His next expected work is a book on the translation of the Falmer language which is tentatively titled Calcelmo's Guide to the Falmer Tongue. For other historical information, see the lore article.
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 (or Cameron), 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)
 King Casimir II (?b - ?d)
King of Wayrest in the early Second Era. He was one of the rulers over the years who made a deal to protect the dragon Nahfahlaar, though the Dragonguard successfully ended this arrangement in 2E 369.
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 (like his father, Pelagius Septim III). 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)
A character in the popular historical fiction 2920, The Last Year of the First Era, it's unknown if he was an historical figure. According to the novels, he was a Breton who spied for Vivec in 1E 2920 during the Four-Score War, but made a bad assumption and gained a bad reputation across the continent as a terrible spy. 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. She was called a beautiful and charming woman who was greatly loved and admired by the people. However, she was also called a deeply unpleasant, arrogant, ambitious, grasping woman who "snared" Uriel VII with her feminine wiles, and he eventually regretted his mistake. They ultimately held a great deal of animosity for each other, presumably to the detriment of their children.
 Celarus, Lore Master (?b - ?d)
Leader of the Psijics for at least 290 years as of 3E 400 (Waughin Jarth has him as the leader of the Psijic Order as far as at least 3E 110). He was the author of The Old Ways. Response to Bero's Speech mentions a sage by the name of Celarus, though it's unclear if they're the same person.
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 at the Battle of Ichidag in 3E 127 he continued on to 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 the Elder Council in 3E 247, 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 cimmerian 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 and beyond, 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 ineffective Empire. Rebellions started under his reign would continue for decades. His reign ended in 3E 268. Emperors before him had "revered" Bretons, but Cephorus was a Nord with Skyrim and Morrowind, which irked the common man in High Rock.
 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. Cherim's Heart of Anequina records his interview with Livillus Perus, where he discussed one of his first tapestries, the Heart of Anequina, depicting Cherim's involvement in the Heart of Anequina during the Five Year War.
 Chimere Graegyn (?b - ?d)
Chimere Graegyn, later known as Old Man Chimere, was a retainer of the ambitious Direnni clan and a master of conjuration. He dared to scheme against Mehrunes Dagon, and won. When his trick succeeded, Dagon was cast into Oblivion. However, in the instant of his betrayal, Dagon struck out against the mortal who tricked him. Chimere's pact assured that he would live forever in his home town among the happy voices of his friends and countrymen. Twisting the literal words of Chimere's pact, Dagon scooped up tiny Caecilly Island (a small island off the coast of Northmoor) and hurled in into the void. All Chimere's friends and countrymen were instantly killed, though the sounds of their voices remained to torment Chimere's memory. Chimere was condemned to live forever, to grow progressively old and crippled with arthritis, and to contemplate the tragic consequences of his defiance of fate and fortune in cheating a Daedra Lord.
 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)
A character from the popular historical fiction 2920, The Last Year of the First Era, whether she was an actual historical figure is unknown. She was depicted as Redguard Morag Tong assassin from Hegathe, Hammerfell (but widely known as an initiate of the Morwha conservatorium). Corda's sister, Rijja was executed by her former lover Reman III in 1E 2920. After her sister's 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 the Night Mother to Vounoura, an island for Morag Tong assassins who became too famous to continue their crusade.
 Cormelik the Elder (?b - ?d)
A man who prophesied all of the returning points of Auriel's Shield. He and his followers were unable to obtain it themselves. 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. Some think Tiber Septim murdered him.
 Cuilean Darnizhaan (?b - ?d)
 Cyril Vinticae (?b - ?d)
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.
