Cliff Racers are large flying creatures found throughout Morrowind, and are related to Cliff Striders and Cliff Darters. They are very aggressive and will attack anyone in sight. Cliff Racers have good vision range, and will often detect and follow travelers without being noticed. This can result in swarms of them descending upon the unwary adventurer. They were driven from the island of Vvardenfell by Saint Jiub the Eradicator, although they have been known to exist in mainland Morrowind well into the Fourth Era.

Found in:


Cliff Strider[edit]

Cliff Strider

Cliff Striders were a species of large, winged, reptilian creatures found in Vvardenfell. They are related to Cliff Racers, and the two species existed contemporaneously. Unlike Cliff Racers, Cliff Striders had great difficulty flying despite their wings, and consequently spent their lives on the ground. Young Cliff Striders are named Cliff Skippers. In the mid-Second Era, one Thetys Ramarys of Balmora took pity on the Cliff Striders and began to breed them into a strain that she hoped would eventually dominate Vvardenfell's skies and stalk prey over long distances. However, by the late Third Era, Cliff Striders were exterminated by the Ash Blight.[4] Cliff Stider anatomy is very similar to the hackwing, and they may be possibly related to them. Some historians theorize the relation resulted from Dark Elves raiding Black Marsh for thousands of years to bring back things they deemed valuable, such as slave labor, livestock, and critters.[5]
