The Kamal are a race of snow demons who live in Akavir.[1] The word means "Snow Hell".[2]

The snow demons spend the winter frozen solid, but when summer comes they thaw out and attack Tang Mo, always unsuccessfully.[2] On one occasion, the Kamal invaded Tamriel under their king, Ada'Soom Dir-Kamal.[3] The invasion had some success at first, including the sacking of Windhelm in Skyrim during 2E 572,[4] but was eventually defeated by Almalexia and the Underking in a battle at Red Mountain.[5] The forces of the Dunmer and Nords were joined by elite Argonian troops at the climax of this battle, and the three races formed the Ebonheart Pact shortly afterwards.[4][6]
