For this race in other games, see Imperial.

Imperials are a playable race in The Elder Scrolls Online. They are available as part of an exclusive collection of digital content included with the Imperial Edition of the game. Unaligned outcasts of their own province of Cyrodiil, rogue Imperials have joined the Ebonheart Pact, the Daggerfall Covenant, and the Aldmeri Dominion, after breaking away from their Daedra worshipping leaders.[1][2]

Imperials have a unique racial skill line, their own mount, and the automatic ability to cosmetically craft items into the Imperial style, in particular armor and weapons.[2][3]
