Redguards, like the first Nords and Aldmers, are foreigners in Tamriel. They hail from Yokuda, a sunken western continent. The term ‘Redguards’ came from the morphed word ‘Ra Gada’ which means “Warrior Wave”. They are waves, alright, because of their swift conquest of the western shorelines of Volenfell. They conquered both the habitable and inhospitable lands and claim it as their own, calling it Hammerfell. Wow, talk about refugees invading foreign soils.

Redguards are not just simple refugees. They are a race of martial might and renowned as the most gifted warriors in Tamriel. Although lacking interests in magic, they are proven to be effective soldiers, mercenaries, scouts, and they have curved swords! Curved. Sword.

In this guide, we’ll take a quick peek at our Redguard fellas and discuss some short history. We will tackle their personality and features and create our Top 10 Male and Female Redguard names. Not only that, we’ll share with you some of our Top 10 Redguard Clan names and a bonus Top Redguard Funny names.

Martial Might of the West Continent

Yokuda is a western continent found in the Eltheric Ocean. It sank to the oceans due to natural disasters. However, historians claim that the Yokuda’s home continent was sunk by a group of Ansei as revenge for their defeat in battle. Yokudan refugees sailed eastward and settled on the island of Herne, and a group of Yokudans warriors called Ra Gada ventured deeper to Tamrielic lands and set foot on the sands of Volenfell.

Upon the arrival of the Ra Gada, they immediately raided native Nedes, Mers, and Beast Folk settlements. They were even able to drove off the hardy Orcs as far to the northwest. They enslaved some of the survivors and studied their ways of living. In only a few months of conquests, the Ra Gada was able to build a strong military presence along the western shoreline of Volenfell. The majority of the Yokudan refugees, including their royalty, migrated to mainland Volenfell after these successful conquests.

The vast lands of Volenfell were believed to be inhospitable to many races. But the Yokudans, with their advanced knowledge in agriculture and survival, were able to establish and create settlements. They re-establish the area and named it Hammerfell, home of the new Yokudans, the Redguards.

In the early years of Hammerfell, the Redguards do not interact or involve themselves in the chaotic turmoil of Tamriel. However, with the founding of the Orc city, Orsinium, the Redguards started to get threatened. They considered the Orcs as a risk to the rising prosperity and peace of their kingdom. For the first time, the Redguards agreed to an alliance with the Bretons of High Rock and successfully defeated the Orcs of Orsinium. During the Second Era, the society of the Redguards was divided into two factions; the Crowns and the Forebears. A civil war occurred between the two factions. The Crowns were defeated by the Imperial-backed Forebears. The regions of Hammerfell were incorporated into the Empire with the Forebears’ victory.

Jumping to the 4th era, the signing of the White-Gold Concordat marks the separation of Hammerfell from the Empire. Titus Mede II gave the rights to occupy parts of Tamriel to the Dominion by signing the Concordat. The Redguards of Hammerfell rebuked the Concordat and instead fought the Dominion. After numerous bloodsheds, the Redguards were successful in repelling the Dominion’s advance.

The signing of the Second Treaty of Stros M’kai signaled the immediate discontinuation of the Dominion’s invasion of Hammerfell.

Wow! So much for the history of the Redguards. Did you know that Hammerfell is the only province in Tamriel where invasions were repelled? There are numerous attempts by the Bretons, Nords, and Thalmors to overthrow the Redguard kingdom in the region. All of them were utterly defeated, crowning the Redguards as the greatest warrior-race known in Tamriel.

Redguards are agile fighters with high dexterity and endurance. They excel in sustained weapon fights and do not tire out easily. They are typically average in height compared with the Altmers and the Nords. Their skin tone ranges from light brown to dark and their hairs are wavy and thick. The Redguard’s culture is centered on martial studies. Redguard women and children are taught the art of warfare and are trained to wield weapons at a young age.

Redguards, however, are not fond of using Conjuration and Illusion magics and are known to despise necromancy above all arcane arts. Some known Redguards excel with Destruction magic, though.

Redguards in-game: Elder Scrolls Online

Like the Orc race, Redguards excel with the use of weapons. They have a reduced cost in wielding weapons and benefits from additional Max Stamina and Stamina restoration. Yes, they are good Stamina DPS for combat builds or Tanks for their large Stamina pool for blocking.

Below is the summary of Racial skills for the Redguard.



This skill increases experience gain under the One-Handed and Shield Skill line. With this skill, Redguards can take advantage of both One-Handed and Shield in the early stages of the game and transform or shift to other One-Hand builds such as Dual-Wielding or Daggers.

This skill also increases the effect duration of foods. Instead of relying on potions, Redguard benefits well with food.

Martial Training

Reduces the cost of weapon abilities by a certain percent. This skill allows the Redguard race to perform more weapon strikes and abilities at lesser costs. It also reduces the effectiveness of snares allowing them to move freely despite being rooted or slowed.


Increases base Max Stamina by a fixed amount. This skill is the same as Imperial Mettle and Orc’s Brawny skill. The only advantage of the Orc is it can be learned at earlier levels. However, the Martial Training skill of the Redguard is proven to be more useful at early levels. The Conditioning skill is a complementary skill to boost further the effects of Martial Training.

Adrenaline Rush

Dealing with direct damage restores a huge amount of stamina for the Redguard. The more hits and damage, the more the capacity of the Redguard to continue the battle. Just make sure that the attacks hit the enemy, otherwise, you’ll be wasting weapon cost and stamina while not dealing damage.

Top 10 Best Redguard Name Picks

We’re almost done with our Redguard name guide. Finally, in this section, we will rank our Top 10 Best Redguard names based on our earlier suggested male and female names, including their clan names. We base our ranking on how well their lore complements with the name and surname, and how ‘Redguardian’ the name is.

Take a look at our Ranked Picks! Or you may want to visit our ESO Name Generator for more names!






The name Fahraam leans towards the Redguard tone. We pair it with the surname al-Hoshi for its lore about a faction of disciplined fighters. Overall, we think this name deserves the top spot and we wish to see an NPC with such a name.





The Redguard name Raneth is already a beautiful name for a Redguard woman. We paired it with the clan at-Suoka for the resemblance of its lore with bow and daggers.





We mentioned from the guide that the name Zyyal is simple and straightforward. We like it that way and we partnered it under the af-Sesnit clan because we think that this Redguard woman befits a swordsman.





The quality of the name is very Redguardian. We like the lore of Kahirr and we add Kehlil as a direct descendant. It’s a good story if written in-game.





We coined the Redguard name ‘Jimaad’ as an expert who mastered the difficult war hammer. It complements well with the Janyaris because ‘Jimaad’ sounds honorable.





Sahlar is associated with augmentation of destruction skill and bow skill. We think she belongs to the al-Qilfiq for her rare affinity with magic. The name magically complements well, even though made the name and clan name lore separately.





Ilarri was associated as a Redguard woman who is gallant and proud. She is extremely hardy and strong. The name fits well with the al-Galet clan who isn’t even afraid of the giant scorpions roaming their area. Cool!





Jabbal is a skillful archer and is fir as a clan member of the al-Kuzum who is known to challenge the Bosmers in archery while sailing the seas. Bold, indeed!





Although belonging to a family of nobility, this does not mean that the person bearing this name does not spill blood in her own hands. We associate Nalwa as a blade dancer using daggers in her hands. af-Hezra on the other hand dwells with politics and spying (or even political assassinations) which compliments well with Nalwa.





This name is a solid Redguardian name. However, we place it on the tenth spot because Redguards that associate themselves with magic are kind of rare and impractical. But the name and the backstory itself are good, otherwise.

If you’re not looking for Redguard names, visit our ESO and Skyrim Name Generator for race-specific name suggestions. We offer names of all the ten races from the Elder Scrolls saga. It’s free and easy to use!
