Fabricant Bird[edit]

Fabricant Birds

The actual name of the Fabricants that resemble birds is unknown. During the second era, daedric crows invaded the clockwork city along with Nocturnal and surprised the people of the city as winged creatures seemed foreign to them. No living bird up to that point are believed to have set foot in Clockwork City, [1] and so likely the creation of the Fabricant bird was sometime after the Souless One's journey in the Clockwork city in the 2E 583.

A Factotum

Factotums are mechanical constructs that are usually humanoid in appearance created by the Clockwork God, Sotha Sil. An invention of need, they were created to maintain his great creation, the Clockwork City. As such they have become an integral part of daily life for the inhabitants of the city, and are vital to running its everyday processes.

Believed to be a fusion of brass and soul, factotums have a shared appearance, voice, and sense of purpose. They hold a structured intelligence, often centered on their singular function. Their dialogue and actions are all based on this function, with only the commonality of a devotion to the Clockwork God. Attempts to deviate from this purpose is simply incomprehensible to them. The Factotum's very nature and materials informed the creation of the mechanical enhancements granted to Clockwork Apostles, resulting in a synthesis of flesh and engineering.

Similar to factotums are the constructs known as fabricants, but they differ in that they are part organic, part inorganic, constructed from an amalgam of grown flesh and metallic grafts and are more bestial in appearance.

Found in:


A Falmer

The Falmer are blind, corrupted descendants of the ancient Snow Elves that live deep beneath the surface of Skyrim. They are known to stalk and attack intruders in various underground areas, primarily Dwemer ruins. Adventurers can often quickly tell when the Falmer inhabit a place thanks to their odor, which is said to be repulsive. They have been known to come up to the surface to attack the unwary. They are roughly man-sized, but hunched over and "ugly", resembling creatures of goblin-kind more than their own Mer ancestors. They have no noses, only long slits for nostrils. Their ears are distinctly pointed, their skin pallid, and their eyes lifeless and black.

Much as "High Elf" and "Wood Elf" are interchangeable terms for "Altmer" and "Bosmer" respectively, "Snow Elf" is really just another term for "Falmer". The Snow Elves were a proud and prosperous race of mer who occupied a portion of modern-day Skyrim until they were displaced by the invading Nords. Many of the ancient Snow Elves were betrayed in a deal for asylum they struck with the Dwemer. The Dwemer forced their wards to subsist only on toxic fungi which twisted them into sightless slaves. It's the descendants of these slaves who many of the people of Tamriel have come to know as the Falmer, while their grand ancestors are remembered as Snow Elves. The Falmer were able to adapt to life underground, but have lost the sophistication the Snow Elves exhibited. For garments, they wear only rags and leathers. They live in tents and huts, employ traps to guard their territory, keep chaurus as livestock, and utilize roughly-made weaponry and tools. Some still demonstrate an aptitude for magic. Perhaps most curiously of all, somehow their souls have shrunk; unlike all other Mer, not are all of their souls the same size, and one does not need a Black Soul Gem to capture one of their souls.

Few know that an unknown number of Snow Elves rejected the Dwemer's deal and went into hiding, or that some of them survived, uncorrupted, into modern times. Knight-Paladin Gelebor of the Chantry of Auri-El, the only known Snow Elf still alive today, embraced the distinction between "Falmer" and "Snow Elf" due to the negative connotations "Falmer" had taken on among travelers over the millennia, but he personally knew his fallen brethren as the Betrayed. Falmers are cited in Skaal legends of Solstheim as "servants of the Adversary" and "evil beings".

A fellrunner

Fellrunners are flightless birds found primarily in deserts such as Hew's Bane, but also in the Summerset Isles. Fellrunners are harmless, and as their name implies, will run at the sight of anything suspicious; this reflex is often used against them by hunters, due to the fact they will run too fast and trip, breaking their thin leg bones. They are incapable of flying and swimming due to their tiny wings.

They emit a moderate amount of heat, singeing fur or hair on contact, and due to this heat, their nests often glow and have pores emitting smoke. In some occasions the hives can be animated due to being a Fetcherfly Hive Golem, these golems are attracted to the destruction of regular hives and will seek out those responsible.

The Fire Atronach is a magical, fire-enchanted creature. Some are artificially constructed as a sort of golem[2]. Others are actually daedra[3], akin to the Flame Atronach.

Flesh Atronach[edit]

A flesh atronach

This flesh enchanted golem is a powerful foe created with Flesh Magic. A Flesh Atronach supposedly serves as an animated flesh shell for the spirits/souls of other Daedra, and appears as a sewn-together conglomeration of skin and muscle adorned with mystical symbols, wearing an iron collar. Flesh Atronachs have multiple orbs/gems on their bodies, the color of which depends upon the variety of Flesh Atronach. They are healed by poison and their magicka increases if hit by spells. They emit an aura that damages opponents if they get too close.

It is hinted that they were created by Relmyna Verenim after her discovery of the "Flesh" element, however some reports indicate otherwise.

Floaters are creatures native to the Bend'r-mahk region of Hammerfell. They have blue skin and a body resembling an umbrella, composed only of beady eyes atop a maw filled with fangs which they rapidly open and close in order to stay in the air.
