The Nords are the children of the sky, a race of tall and fair-haired humans from Skyrim who are known for their incredible resistance to cold and magical frost. They are enthusiastic warriors, and many become renowned soldiers and mercenaries all over Tamriel. Eager to augment their martial skills beyond the traditional methods of Skyrim, they excel in all manner of warfare, and are known as a militant people by their neighbors. Nords are also natural seamen, and have benefited from nautical trade since their first migrations from Atmora. They captain and crew many merchant fleets, and may be found all along the coasts of Tamriel.

 Ideal Character
Obviously, Nords are primarily combat-based, so their skills are anything but synergistic with each other. That doesn't mean they can't be unique, though. Nords seem to be tough characters, willing to suffer some scars in each engagement. More accurately, Nords focus on magical resistance while using combat in their main lifestyle. This essentially makes them a combat equivalent to Bretons. Rather than having a bonus to magical skills, you're given a variety of options for how to work your character. This also means it can be easier to focus your character's development than as a Breton.
