Faded Wraith
A weaker form of wraith, with a translucent appearance.
Falmer, also known as Snow Elves or Ice Elves, are a twisted race of blind subterranean Mer that live deep beneath the surface of Skyrim. The Falmer were once a proud people with an unusually great aptitude for magic. They had a strong resistance to frost, as their skin was coated with a thin layer of blue-white ice. They had a civilization which rivaled even the Altmer of the Summerset Isles. They had their own language, which was written in a complex and nearly indecipherable alphabet. They were purported to use spears and archery in combat.
The Dwemer agreed to protect the Falmer, but did not trust them. The Dwemer forced their Falmer guests to consume a type of toxic fungus found growing deep underground which rendered them blind. The Falmer first became servants of the Dwemer, then their slaves. The Dwemer made the fungus an essential part of the Falmer diet, ensuring that all future generations would be as powerless as their current slaves. The Falmer were embittered by this betrayal and rebelled against their dwarven masters. In 1E 700, when the Dwemer disappeared, the Falmer were left to spread freely throughout Blackreach. However, centuries of subterranean slavery, combined with their permanent blindness, left the Falmer crippled, and years of fighting the Dwemer left the race bloodthirsty and brutal.
Feeling the need to conquer, the Falmer began launching raids on the surface world. The Falmer tamed the Chaurus, a poisonous insect native to the deepest reaches of Skyrim. They learned to use chitin for all of their crafting needs, creating everything from tents to swords with the dark, brittle substance. The Falmer dwell mostly in the ruins of their masters, including the Silent City of Blackreach, although they can occasionally be found living in isolated cave systems. They have a strong hatred for all but their own race, but are known to keep their own as slaves.

 Fire Atronach
The Fire Atronach is a magical, fire-enchanted golem. It is advised to use cold based spells when attacking one, as any fire spells actually heal the creature instead of damaging it.

The Fire Atronach should not be confused with the Flame Atronach, wich is a daedra rather than a golem.
