The Lefthanded Elves were a race of elves from Yokuda, closely related to the Aldmer. They were the enemies of the Yokudans (ancient Redguards). During the Mythic Era, the Na-Totambu (Yokudan royalty) fought to a standstill among themselves to decide who would lead the charge against the Lefthanded Elves. Leki intervened and a victor emerged; war was then declared on the Elves. Diagna, an avatar of the HoonDing, brought orichalc weapons to the Yokudans, which were instrumental in defeating the Elves.
Their defeat by the Yokudans and the subsequent sinking of Yokuda imply that the race is extinct.
