Lord Kagrenac was the Dwemeri Chief Tonal Architect during the time of the First Council. The foremost arcane philosopher and magecrafter of the Dwemer, he was a "pioneer" in the field of mythopoeic forces, and devised tools with which to harness them with the intent of transcending the limits of Dwemer mortality. Kagrenac was the primary architect working on the Heart of Lorkhan and was responsible for creating the original Brass God, Numidium. According to some theories, it may have been his use of his tools on the Heart that caused the Dwemer to disappear from the face of Tamriel in 1E 700.
 King Karoodil (?b - ?d)
King of Firsthold in the Isle of Summerset. He desperately wanted to speak to his dead son. Morgiah, princess of Wayrest, understood she could take advantage from this situation. She contacted the King of Worms, a powerful Necromancer, so that he could arrange a 'conversation' between Karoodil and his dead son. Thanks to this 'help', Morgiah could marry Karoodil and thus became queen of Firsthold.
Kastav was an Emperor of the Reman Dynasty. In 1E 2801, he ordered the Dragonguard of Sky Haven Temple to seize Nordic hostages to coerce the satisfaction of conscription quotas. He then cut off supplies to the Temple when they refused to help suppress the Winterhold Rebellion. He was succeeded in 1E 2805 or 2806 by Reman II.
Empress Katariah, born Katariah Ra'athim, was part of a prominent Ebonheart family, and she had been Duchess of Vvardenfell before she was married to the future Emperor Pelagius Septim III, ruler of Solitude, in 3E 141. The unusual union was thought to have occurred both to cement Imperial relations with Ebonheart and because Emperor Magnus hoped Katariah, who was known for her shrewdness, could help conceal his son Pelagius' eccentricities. Katariah was awarded the regency of Tamriel in 3E 147. The Empress Regent of Tamriel was proclaimed Empress Katariah I upon the death of her husband in 3E 153, and her almost fifty-year reign is remembered as a happy one.
 Khosey (?b - ?d)
 Kieran the Bard (?b - ?d)
Author of a number of bardic tales. Unknown time period.
First cousin of Emperor Pelagius Septim and daughter of Tiber Septim's brother Agnorith, Empress Kintyra was crowned the third Emperor of Tamriel after Pelagius' assassination in 3E 41, as Pelagius had no living children. The former Queen of Silvenar was blessed with a time of prosperity and good harvests, and was an avid patroness of art, music, and dance. Kintyra was mother to Uriel Septim I, successor to her rule of Tamriel when she died in 3E 48. The most famous burglar in Elsweyr's history, Rajhin, is said to have stolen a tattoo from the neck of Empress Kintyra as she slept. The Wolf Queen, v1, quoting a sage, implies that Kintyra was still Empress in 3E 63, though she died fifteen years before.
Inherited the throne at the age of fifteen when her father, King Antiochus died after twenty-one years of ruling in 3E 119. Her story is considered one of the saddest tales of the Third Era. Her aunt Queen Potema of Solitude, on behalf of her son Uriel III, accused Kintyra of being a bastard, alluding to the famous decadence of the Imperial City during her father's reign. When this accusation failed to stop her coronation, Uriel bought the support of several disgruntled kings of High Rock, Skyrim, and Morrowind, and, with Queen Potema's assistance, coordinated three attacks on the Septim Empire. The first attack occurred in the Iliac Bay that separates High Rock and Hammerfell. Kintyra's entourage was destroyed and the Empress was taken captive. The Empress died in captivity at Glenpoint. She was a prominent character in the historical fiction The Wolf Queen. Despite her short life, she managed to garner a reputation as an accomplished mystic and sorceress.
There is some controversy over Empress Kintyra's exact date of death, as some sources list it as 3E 114, and others list it as 3E 121-125, with nobody being sure of the exact date. Also, according to The Third Era Timeline and the fictional work Broken Diamonds, Kintyra II was murdered on the morning of the 23rd of Frost Fall, in the year 3E 123. Regardless of when it happened, the death of Kintyra II was considered by some to be the end of the pure strain of Septim blood in the imperial family.
A High King (or "High Chieftain") of Skyrim who rebelled against Emperor Gorieus and was killed in the Battle of Sungard in 1E 477 or 478. It is unclear exactly when his reign started, but it is known attended Gorieus' coronation in 1E 461 as Skyrim's High King. High King Olaf One-Eye's reign had ended only 9 years before Gorieus's coronation, though it's possible there was a different High King during some of that time. The Moot ultimately chose Kjoric's son, Hoag Merkiller, to replace him as High King.
Kodlak Whitemane was a Nord warrior and a well-respected Harbinger of the Companions. He avoided politics, and maintained the Companions' long-standing tradition of abstaining from political conflicts during the Stormcloak Rebellion (although he did worship Talos}. He was also something of a philosopher, prone to pondering on the meaning of honor and nobility. He lost his family at a young age, when he was little more than a boy. His predecessor, the Harbinger Askar, found him working as a bodyguard in Hammerfell, and recruited him. The Companions quickly became his new family. As Harbinger, he maintained that family and honor are the most important things to the Companions, and that they should deal with problems head-on, finding honor in life through glory in battle. Legends of the Companions speak of Kodlak's many great feats, such as Kodlak and another Companion fighting off one hundred and one Orc berserkers. For more information, see the lore article.
 Jarl Korir (?b - ?d)
The Nord Jarl of Winterhold in 4E 201. Like most of his subjects, Korir held hatred and suspicion for the College of Winterhold, and vowed to have them banned. He supported the Stormcloaks during the Stormcloak Rebellion, and had a son named Assur.
