Maormer reside on the island kingdom of Pyandonea, far south of the Summerset Isles. Similar to their Altmer cousins in build, their skin can range in tone from pearlescent white or grey blue, and some that is entirely colorless, as if their flesh were made of some white limpid jelly. Some Maormer ears are more broad than those of other mer, and are flared along the outer ear like a clip point blade. Their ears are shaped in such a way that they resemble fins. Their tattoos are elaborate, and they tend to display a vicious demeanor towards the denizens of Tamriel. Maormer are acclimated to life on the waves, and are steady on their feet in even the roughest waters. Maormer tongues can filter saltwater and make it potable.
The Maormer were relentless in their drive to conquer Summerset, and there is scarcely a year throughout the First or Second Eras when they did not ravage the coastlines of the Altmer. Every attack launched by the Maormer against Summerset has been led by Orgnum himself, and despite the number of wars and strategies employed by the Maormer, each of these attacks has proved to be an ultimate failure. They also briefly controlled Khenarthi's Roost, and established a treaty with the resident Khajiit.
