For other uses, see Khajiit.

The Khajiit of Elsweyr can vary in appearance from nearly elven to the Cathay-Raht "jaguar men" to the great Senche-Tiger. The most common breed found in Morrowind, the Suthay-raht, is intelligent, quick, and agile. Khajiit of all breeds have a weakness for sweets, but none is more potent than Moon Sugar, which is often distilled to form the drug known as Skooma. Many Khajiit disdain weapons in favor of their natural claws, making them very talented unarmed fighters. They make excellent thieves due to their natural agility and unmatched acrobatics ability. Many Khajiit in Morrowind are slaves, usually alongside Argonians. It should also be noted that in Morrowind, Khajiits along with Argonians do not have the ability to bear helmets covering the face and bear any boots due to the limitation of their physical attributes.

Common playstyle

Khajiit excel at thief-based classes due to their natural proficiencies with sneaking, lockpicking, and acrobatics. In battle, Khajiit rely on speed and quickness to deliver small amounts of damage with daggers and short swords. Hand-to-hand combat cannot be underestimated either when caught in a fight without a weapon, a skill that the Khajiit are famous for using due to their clawed hands.
