"This island off the south coast of Elsweyr is named after the Khajiiti goddess of weather and the sky, who is usually represented as a great hawk. She finds many worshipers among the cat-folk's sailors and farmers, especially those who grow moon-sugar cane."
―Khenarthi's Roost Loading Screen[src]

Khenarthi's Roost is an island that lies off the south coast of Elsweyr. The Island is named after the Khajiiti goddess of the winds and sky, Khenarthi.[1]

The lush island of Khenarthi's Roost is a place of calm beaches and tropical forests, and the area is dotted with moon sugar plantations. Native Khajiit fish in the Topal Sea here and tend marshy bamboo farms. Cultists with the power to command the fury of the sea lurk in the island's hidden caves and tide-swept grottoes. The nearby waters are patrolled by Sea Elf “enforcers” who are known to interrupt trading ships, while enforcing a treaty they made with the Khajiit many years ago.[2][3]


The Kingdom of Pyandonea is outraged by the Aldmeri Dominion attempt to win over the locals of Khenarthi's Roost, citing an ancient treaty that gives them ownership of the island. Any trading ships carrying cargo in violation of one of the treaty provisions must hand over their cargo to the Sea Elves or be taken prisoner. Despite the Dominion's attempts to find a peaceful solution, negotiations have gone badly, bringing both sides even closer to conflict. By working with the sea-cultists, the Maormer plan to use their command of the sea to expel the Dominion from Khenarthi's Roost.[2][3]

  • During beta, all Aldmeri Dominion members began their journey in Tamriel on this island. This was changed with the game's release, but a character named Sugar-Claws was added to give the option to travel to this zone immediately if so desired.
  • Khenarthi is the name of the Khajiiti deity of the Winds. She may be a variation on the Cyrodiilic and Bretony goddess Kynareth and the Nordic Kyne.[1]
  • Khenarthi's Roost is the only extra Location in the Aldmeri Dominion. The Pact and Covenant have two extra zones.
