If you use magic, you're weak or wicked. Redguards , originally a corruption of the Yokudan word Ra Gada meaning warrior wave , are an infraspecies of Humans indigenous to the lost continent of Yokuda on the planet Nirn. Despite the location of their homeland they are now found in Tamriel's province of Hammerfell , which they swiftly and decisively conquered long ago after their own continent sank in a manner similar to Atlantis. Because of their quick taking of Hammerfell, they are renowned Tamriel-wide as the fiercest, most versatile and naturally gifted warriors on the entire continent.
Redguards are a playable race featured in the Elder Scrolls series. They are a race of humans. Reguards are former inhabitants of the continent to the west, Yokuda. Around 1E , Yokuda sank into the ocean after a group of Ansei called the Hiradirge sought revenge on the land after their defeat in battle. The surviving Yokudans sailed to the east and settled in Volenfell the Dwemer name for the region , what would later be known as Hammerfell.
The Dragonborn encounters some Alik'r warriors in search of a Redguard woman. They must choose whether to believe the warriors, and return the woman to custody, or trust the fugitive, and kill her pursuers. Either option offers a decent monetary reward. At any time after starting the main quest " Dragon Rising ," the Dragonborn will encounter Alik'r Warriors on the roads of Skyrim or at the entrance to Whiterun, arguing with the town guard for entry to the city.
