Redguards hail from the province of Hammerfell. They are a stocky, powerful race that are known to be extremely quick and hardy. Legend has it that Redguards are innately more proficient at weapons than any other race. They are excellent in all arts concerning blade and shield, and only darkelves have superior combat skills. They have descended from a long line of warriors and mystic seers.
The most naturally talented warriors in Tamriel, the dark skinned, wiry haired Redguards of Hammerfell seem born to battle, though their pride and fierce independence of spirit makes them more suitable as scouts or skirmishers, or as free ranging heroes and adventurers, than as rank and file soldiers. In addition to their cultural affinities for many weapon and armor styles, Redguards are also blessed with hardy constitutions and quickness of foot.
The main religion of Hammerfell is a type of religion mixed between ancestor worship and a nine divines type religion.
According to Trayvond the Redguard, in Hammerfell, they "dont much like spellcasters, because Wizards steal souls and tamper with minds. If you use magic, you're weak or wicked."
