Elante of Alinor was an Altmer archaeologist and scholar of Daedric shrines in the late Third Era, and the author of her research notes. In 3E 427 Elante and her colleague Badama Andarys uncovered a Daedric ruin in a cave found along Vvardenfell's northern coastline in the Sheogorad region. This turned out to be the fabled Tomb of Mordrin Hanin. The expedition ended in disaster when their summonings failed to conjure anything more than scamps to aid their excavation, and when an adventurer looted the cave and tomb of their treasure, killing Badama in the process.
In 3E 433, Elante's research pointed her towards a cave along Cyrodiil's Gold Coast, which likely contained a Daedric shrine. She hired a new recruit from the Fighters Guild to help her navigate the cave and slay the many hostile Daedra who inhabited it. Elante discovered a lost shrine to Molag Bal deep inside the cave, which helped to further the understanding of Daedra.
 Jarl Elgryr the Unminded (?b - ?d)
A little-known Jarl of Windhelm who lived in the Second Era. He was considered a cold-hearted ruler who cared little for the social inequity that was prevalent under his rule. The people, starving, eventually stormed the palace of "the unminded one".
 Elisif the Fair (?b - ?d)
Beloved wife of Torygg, High King of Skyrim. Following Torygg's death, she took his place as Jarl of Solitude, though the decision on who would assume the role of High King (or Queen) was delayed due to the outbreak of the Stormcloak Rebellion. She was a popular leader amongst her people, although some of her supporters had concerns about her young age and inexperience. Like her husband, she supported the Empire, though she privately maintained her worship of Talos in defiance of the White-Gold Concordat. In 4E 201, Elisif ordered the discontinuation of the annual festival held by the Bards College known as the Burning of King Olaf, as she thought it was unbecoming. However, when a prospective bard rediscovered the lost King Olaf's Verse and it was performed for her, she recognized the festival as a righteous celebration of triumph over tyranny and allowed it to continue.
Daughter of Emperor Uriel V, twin to Morihatha and half-sister to Uriel VI. Mother of Emperor Pelagius IV who was crowned in 3E 339 on the assassination of Morihatha. Eloisa died of fever in 3E 335.
King Emeric of Wayrest was a member of the Cumberland Dynasty in the Second Era. His father, King Pierric, made sure he was schooled in both economics and military matters, and he served as a lieutenant escorting caravans during the summers. When he was twenty, he helped fend off the onslaught of the Reachmen leader Durcorach when the latter began leading attacks against cities in High Rock. Emeric finally killed Dorcorach outside Daggerfall. The Knahaten Flu killed his father, as well as the entire royal family of Wayrest, and Emeric ascended to the throne in 2E 563. There was reportedly a "Halo of Gold" around the sun on the day of his coronation. He wed Princess Maraya of Sentinel three years later, greatly angering King Ranser of Shornhelm, who had desired Emeric to marry his daughter, leading to Ranser's War in Last Seed of that year. He wielded the Orichalc Scalpel when Ranser's army came to the gates of Wayrest, and Emeric's forces eventually succeeded in breaking their siege of his city. In the aftermath of the war, Emeric helped forge the Greater Daggerfall Covenant. Emeric was a strong advocate for an invasion of Cyrodiil in order to restore "the true flame of the Empire of Man".
 Emmeg Gro-Kayra (?b - ?d)
According to myth, he was an Orcish warrior, born in Normar Heights in present-day High Rock, who lived in the First Era before Orsinium was founded. He was the son of the Daedric Prince Malacath and an orcish maiden (presumably named Kayra) who was killed at childbirth. He was raised by the shaman of her tribe named Grilikamaug. At the age of fifteen, after completing his tribe's rite of ascension, Emmeg spent the next two years performing many noble deeds throughout High Rock. Eventually Sheogorath tricked Malacath into killing his own son and took Emmeg's soul to his realm of Shivering Isles.
 Enric Milres (?b - ?d)
Enric Milres was a late Third Era poet and writer. He authored the books The Alik'r and Sacred Witness. While born in the Imperial City, he adopted the city of Sentinel as his home. He was allegedly murdered by the Night Mother herself, after publishing an incriminating book about their first meeting.
 Eorlund Gray-Mane (?b - ?d)
A member of the prestigious Gray-Mane family of Whiterun in and around 4E 201. His wife was Fralia Gray-Mane, and they had three children, Avulstein, Olfina, and Thorald. He worked the famous Skyforge at the Jorrvaskr Mead Hall for the Companions, and was widely regarded as the best blacksmith in Skyrim.
 King Eplear (?b - 1E? d)
King Eplear was an early ruler of the province of Valenwood and the founder of the long-lived Camoran Dynasty. The date for his founding of the dynasty is traditionally accepted as the earliest date in Tamriel's recorded history, 1E 0.
While little is known about Eplear's life in detail, historians have suggested that it was Eplear who first united the wild ancestral Bosmer and created for Valenwood its first effective political identity, something that is called one of the "greatest military feats in Tamriel's history". He is also remembered as a benevolent, welcoming king who invited refugees from the troubled Ayleid Empire and elsewhere to live in Valenwood with the Bosmer. Specific details about how King Eplear died seem to be non-existent.
 Sage Eraintine (?b - ?d)
Sage during the Third Era, around 3E 250. When the Council granted Andorak the High Rock kingdom of Shornhelm to end the war, Eraintine called it "Tiber Septim's heart beating no more", and wrote that the Camoran Usurper emerged "from out of a cimmerian nightmare".
 Eric of Guis, (?b - ?d)
An emissary of Reman II to the Altmer ca 1E 2820. He wrote many vitriolic rants against them and the Bosmer, which were quoted extensively in The Pocket Guide to the Empire, First Edition: Aldmeri Dominion.
 Erlendr (?b - ?d)
Erlendr was a Nord warrior from the Second Era. He and four companions embarked on a quest to find Sovngarde. However, Erlendr, Hunroor, and Nikulas were betrayed by the wizard Grimkell, who turned them into stone pillars at Brodir Grove on Solstheim. They were avenged by Ulfgar the Unending, who killed the wizard. All of the friends eventually did find their way to Sovngarde.
A living saint of Arkay in the late Third Era. Errandil served at the Great Chapel of Arkay in the Cyrodilic city of Cheydinhal. He was strongly against the practice of necromancy, and approved of Arch-Mage Hannibal Traven's stance on the Black Arts and its subsequent banning from the Mages Guild. Errandil was slain in 3E 433 by a contingent of Aurorans sent to desecrate the Chapel by Umaril the Unfeathered in his war against the Nine Divines. The Chapel was saved from desecration by the Divine Crusader, but not before the saint's untimely death.
