Both male and female Ohmes-raht from The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall

Main article: Khajiit

Ohmes-raht are a breed of Khajiit, a race that hails from the land of Elsweyr.

Appearance and physiology[]

The Ohmes-raht is a taller, more beastlike breed than their cousins, the Ohmes. Their height and skeletal features resemble that of Men, and at a distance they can easily be mistaken for Men. However, their major difference is in their golden brown fur and their tail. Like the Ohmes, the Ohmes-raht highlight their Khajiit background through the use of 'catlike' war paint.

The Ohmes-raht was a common sight in Daggerfall for a short time during the early 5th century of the 3rd era.

Influences of the moons[]

The Ohmes-raht are one of 17 confirmed breeds of Khajiit,[1][2] and each breed is born due to the influences of Nirn's two moons, Masser and Secunda.[3]

The former is Nirn's largest moon, and the main influencing force on Khajiit breeds. Depending on Masser's lunar lattice, the Khajiit will fall under one major appearance and physiology out of four possibilities. These are as follows:

Full Waxing New Waning
Large Quadruped Large Biped Small Biped Small Quadruped

Secunda, Nirn's smaller moon, influences the appearance and physiology of a Khajiit in more subtle ways than that of Masser. Generally, the closer Secunda is to a full phase, the less beastlike a breed appears. The closer Secunda is to a Waning phase, the more beastlike a breed appears.

The Ohmes-raht is a small biped, and is the 2nd least beastlike of the small biped variants. It is born under Masser's new phase, and Secunda's waxing phase.



  • Former developer Michael Kirkbride has stated that, conceptually, "The only reason Ohmes even exist was so I could explain away the Arena and Daggerfall khajiit."[UL 1]
