The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard is a spin-off of the Elder Scrolls franchise set on the island of Stros M'Kai. Unlike the main series, Redguard is a third-person action-adventure game with no skills and a predefined player character.

Its story takes place after the defeat of Prince A'tor, the leader of the Crowns, and the subsequent Imperial occupation of Hammerfell. You play as Cyrus, a Redguard mercenary who travels to Stros M'Kai in search of his sister, Iszara, who disappeared three months prior under mysterious circumstances.
