Sometimes referred to as a Water Atronach, this magically enchanted creature causes not only damage from its vicious attacks, but also from the extreme cold aura it generates. Some are artificially constructed as a sort of golem. Others are actually daedra, akin to the Frost Atronach. Ice Atronachs are immune to cold based spells, which actually heal the creature. They are also immune to normal weapons, but have a weakness to fire-based attacks. They are often summoned by mages, and can be hunted as a source of Frost Salts.
A weak variety of Golem, created out of ice.
The Ice Tribes (also referred to as glacier tribes) are blue-skinned, tribal humanoids known to be encountered in northern, frozen regions of Tamriel. Their physiques appear quite muscular and some can be seen with two blue spike formations upon their shoulders. They are known to make allies with creatures like trolls, snowrays, and the fearsome Gehenoth. They are also capable of negotiations and making deals with men.
Spirits native to Skyrim, Ice Wraiths are traditionally hunted by young Nord warriors as a rite of passage, so that they may claim full status as citizens. Their fast speed and near-transparency makes them a tough challenge in numbers.
Imps are small, winged humanoids who are slightly intelligent and can cast a variety of spells. Speakers of Impish can tame these creatures. The Homonculus is physically similar to the Imp. The origins of the Imp are not clearly known. Some sources suggest they may be Daedric beings, while others state that they are artificial constructs similar to golems. It may be that both theories are correct. Imps were among the first beings summoned from Oblivion during the development of Conjuration magic, suggesting at least some of them could be Daedra.
The Imperfect is a factotum variant designed with advanced combat features. A new prototype is created and is improved upon each time it is destroyed. Sequence plaques are collected to be analyzed for their data after each combat test so further advancements are made. One day it shall obtain its true form, and fulfill its ultimate goal. Around the 2E 582, the Vestige encountered and defeated several Imperfect factotums during their journey in the Clockwork City within the Asylum Sanctorum and the Sanctuary of Verification. They were aided by one in the Ventral Terminus. In the Third Era, two of these giant constructs were created by Sotha Sil for the purpose of guarding him in his Clockwork City. Only one was functional during the Nerevarine's venture to the Clockwork City in 3E 427; it attacked the Nerevarine and was defeated.

The Indigo Tree Frog is a species of Tree Frog found in Murkmire, which are used by Argonian vossa-satl makers to create the instruments unique sound. They are blue in color with black spots and live in groups, nesting in the high branches of trees and only come down to feed on insects such as Fleshflies.
Indriks are magical creatures that bear some relation to Jephre. They can be found throughout the forests of Summerset Isle and are often hostile. Indriks can be summoned to Tamriel by combining four legendary feathers. Indriks follow an evolutionary pattern and has four forms. The indrik first enters Tamriel in a pure form, and are referred to as Nascent Indriks. Further exposure to some infused stimulus will change its form and cause it to evolve, developing secondary characteristics and more specialized antlers. The second form is referred to as a Dawnwood Indrik and its antlers grow and develop a green glow. Its plumes also develop a green color.
Iron Atronachs (sometimes called Earth Atronachs) are a type of Elemental Daedra. They are towering behemoths composed of solid and molten iron and usually take a roughly humanoid form. Iron Atronachs come from an unnamed volcanic realm of Oblivion, an impossibly dense molten hellscape that produces them in abundance. Iron Atronach names usually appear with the Daedric clan name "Mynar".
Iron Atronachs have a relentless appetite for destruction and are often found in the Deadlands, the volcanic realm of Mehrunes Dagon, the Prince of Destruction. They attack using their brute strength and the molten heat of their bodies. Some Iron Atronachs possess a magical aura that damages anyone who dares to get too close . Electricity-based spells do not damage Iron Atronachs, but heal them instead. They can be harmed by any type of weapon.
Few mortal conjurers dare to summon Iron Atronachs to Tamriel, despite them making powerful servants. Those that do sometimes end up dead. Some mages, not satisfied with simply summoning Iron Atronachs, weave powerful Illusion spells to assume the shape of an Iron Atronach. The Undaunted were known to use Iron Atronach-styled weapons and armor.
