Redguard is the first (and only) game in the spin-off series called The Elder Scrolls Adventures. Unlike the main series, Redguard is a third-person action-adventure game with no skills and a predefined player character. It is set on Stros M'Kai following the defeat of Crown Prince A'tor and the subsequent Imperial occupation. You play as Cyrus, a Redguard mercenary who travels to the island in search of his sister, Iszara, who disappeared three months prior under mysterious circumstances.
