Alfiq: Fixed typo
The Alfiq are a diminutive form of magically gifted Khajiit{{ref|name=TwitchAlfiqClothing|group=UOL|[ Leamon Tuttle on Alfiq Clothing-Bethesda Twitch Stream]}} resembling typical [[Lore:Cat|housecats]].{{ref|name=PGE1E}}{{ref|name=HousecatPet|[[Online:Pets H#Housecat|Housecat pet]] description in The Elder Scrolls Online}} Their resemblance to common housecats has led many to treat them as such, whether by downplaying their intelligence, cooing at them or attempting to cuddle them.{{ref|name=ESORari|[[Online:Ra'ri|Ra'ri]]'s dialogue in [[Online:Elsweyr|ESO: Elsweyr]]}}{{ref|name=ESONirahni|[[Online:Nirahni|Nirahni]]'s dialogue in [[Online:Elsweyr|ESO: Elsweyr]]}} While it is rumored among outsiders that Alfiq are mute,{{ref|group=UOL|name=IWTB}} they are in fact capable of speech. The misconception that Alfiq are incapable of speech may derive from the scholarly reduction of Alfiq to the status of housecats, or from a disinclination of Alfiq to talk in the presence of outsiders.{{ref|name=ESORari}} Due to the disrespect that Alfiq get as a result of their form, they rarely travel outside Elsweyr.{{ref|name=ESORari}} All these factors resulted in Alfiq resenting being labeled as housecats, which they consider patronizing and irritating.{{ref|name=ESOMojzin|[[Online:Mojzin|Mojzin]]'s dialogue in [[Online:Elsweyr|ESO: Elsweyr]]}} The grave lack of knowledge outsiders have of them does allow Alfiq to pose as housecats in order to serve as information gatherers.{{ref|name=ESOMojzin}} Alfiq wear clothing, but as they are unable to naturally put it on themselves, they either have others do it for them, or they use magic to clothe themselves.{{ref|name=TwitchAlfiqClothing|group=UOL}} SheggorathSheogorath has been seen in the form of an Alfiq.{{ref|name=ESOSC|[[Online:Skooma Cat|Skooma Cat]]'s appearance in [[Online:Elsweyr|ESO: Elsweyr]]}}
