** It is rumored that [[OurElvesAreDifferent Ayleids (Wild Elves)]], whose race once ruled all of Cyrodiil, still live in the untamed wilds across Tamriel, but the odd unconfirmed sighting is the only evidence for it. By the 4th Era, centuries have gone by without a reliable sighting.
*** A lot of Ayleid refugees fled Cyrodiil, but few found safe havens. One group went into High Rock and joined the Direnni Altmer there, where they formed the "last kingdom of the Ayleids" under the leadership of Laloriaran Dynar; it managed to keep going for a while and even beat the Alessians at the battle of Glenumbra Moors, but eventually the local Bretons displaced them. Other Ayleid clans went into Valenwood and [[GoingNative went native]].

** The Kothringi were a race of primitive [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation silver-skinned]] menfolk native to the Black Marsh. However, during the 2nd Era, they were almost completely wiped out by the [[MysticalPlague Knahaten Flu]]. Two remnant groups were known to have survived for at least a few decades after, however:
*** A group of Kothringi refugees escaped their homeland aboard the Crimson Ship. However, they were denied refuge anywhere in Tamriel and sailed westward. Redguard sailors later supposedly found the ship with all aboard having died, but other tales tell that [[GhostShip none who see the ship ever return alive]].
*** The chief of the Kothringi tribe in Stillrise Village made a deal with Clavicus Vile, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[DealWithTheDevil Bargains]] and [[JerkassGenie Wishes]], in order to survive the Flu. Vile kept his end of the bargain, but did so by transforming the populace into immortal, undead skeletons. The villagers [[TheMasquerade maintained living appearances through illusion magic]] and lived in peace for over 20 years, but a group of necromancers discovered their secret and attempted to enslave them. The villagers defeated the necromancers, but would eventually succumb to their own infighting.
