It is said that they even ruled the world (or a previous world that was destroyed and made into the current world) during the [[TimeOfMyths earliest era following creation]]. While their intelligence is said to have devolved over time, they are still considered a sapient species. That doesn't stop hunters (primarily the [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer]]) from killing them for their leathery hides (which can be forged into quality weapons and armor) and wax (a valuable ingredient in alchemy).
