Red Eagle, or Faolan in the language of the the Reach, was an ancient king who, armed with a flaming sword, rallied his people and drove back the armies of Cyrodiil in the First Era. Over time, accounts of Red Eagle have become distorted and embellished, but they seem to be based on truth: the Imperial chronicles of Empress Hestra mention a rebel leader who was eventually cornered and slain in battle around the year 1E 1030, at the cost of a full legion of men. Curiously, stories of a similar king and his legendary blade appear in other ancient myths of the Reach.
 Relmyna Verenim (?b - ?d)
Relmyna Verenim was a resident of the Shivering Isles at the end of the Third Era. She was originally from Tamriel, which is where she discovered the so-called "Sixth Element": Flesh. She was expelled from the Mages Guild due to the extreme nature of her experiments. Sheogorath invited her to his Realm, where she could continue her research free of scrutiny. Because of this, she developed a passionate -- and obsessive -- love for the Daedric Prince.
Relmyna was responsible for creating the first Gatekeeper. After many failed attempts she accomplished this by using the magical ingredients of the Gardens of Flesh and Bone to give life to several enchanted body parts stitched together to form a body. Using Sheogorath's divine madness as the seed, Relmyna birthed the creature. Her tears and the bones of a previous Gatekeeper were used to slay the creature in 3E 433.
After the death of her "child", Relmyna and her apprentice Nanette Don retired to her home, the ruins of Xaselm. There she resumed her study on the nature of Pain. Later that year, the Fringe was invaded by the Forces of Order. Sheogorath's Champion was sent to help Relmyna construct another Gatekeeper. The sorceress was hesitant at first due to the Champion's direct involvement with the death of the original. Relmyna and the Champion created the new Gatekeeper using a Daedric binding ritual, which helped to contain the Order which had taken over the Fringe.
Reman II (1E 2794 - 1E 2851) was probably the third emperor of the Reman Dynasty. The uncertainty is due to the fact that no definitive list of Reman emperors exists, but it seems likely he was the son of the second emperor, Brazollus Dor. He was crowned following the death of his father in 1E 2812 and after his death, the crown passed to his son, Reman III.
Most of the events of his reign are lost to history, but in 1E 2840 he launched an attempt to conquer Morrowind. The conflict, which was to become known as the Four-Score War, eventually dragged on until 1E 2920, and cost Reman his life when he was killed in battle at the age of 56.
Reman III was the last emperor of the Reman Dynasty. He fought the Four-Score War with Morrowind during the conclusion of which he was assassinated by the Morag Tong, causing the rise of the Akaviri Potentate.
His ordinal, III, indicates simply that he was the third emperor to be named Reman. There were two other known emperors with a different name who were part of this dynasty: Brazollus Dor and Kastav.
Ria Silmane was the apprentice of Jagar Tharn. After Tharn took over the Imperial throne, he murdered Ria because he was not able to corrupt her. However, she kept her spirit bound to the mortal plane via her magic; yet her magicka reserves were constantly draining, limiting the time she had left. Ria could still cast magic, but it drained her energy even further. She aided the Eternal Champion in escaping the Imperial Prison and tracking down all eight pieces of the Staff of Chaos. She did not have a corporeal form, and she communicated largely through dreams and visions. She used up the last of her magicka to help the Champion infiltrate the Imperial Palace, and was never heard from again.
 Legate Rikke (?b - ?d)
Legate Rikke was a Nord commander of the Imperial Legion during the Stormcloak Rebellion. The Legate followed in the footsteps of her parents, who are also Legionnaires. During the Great War, she fought side-by-side with Ulfric Stormcloak and many others who would later become Stormcloaks. Though she came to believe Ulfric was a self-serving ego-maniac, she once counted him and many of his followers as friends. She held a great deal of anger toward Ulfric, as she believed the Empire was the best chance at victory against the Thalmor, but also deeply saddened by his decisions. She continued to worship Talos privately despite the White-Gold Concordat.
During the Stormcloak Rebellion, she was the chief lieutenant of General Tullius, who ran the Empire's campaign. She was his closest adviser and strategist, and often gave him insights on Nordic culture that he, a Cyrodiil-born Imperial, did not know or fully appreciate. They had disagreements, but she believed Tullius was the best hope for Skyrim and the Empire. Rikke had a great many duties, including local recruiting in Solitude, though she frequently found herself fighting, coordinating scouts, and manipulating enemy intelligence on the front lines.
 Saint Rilms the Barefooted (?b - ?d)
Patron of Pilgrims and Beggars. Saint Rilms gave away her shoes, then dressed and appeared as a beggar to better acquaint herself with the poor. Her shoes are now a prized relic of the Tribunal Temple.
Rislav Larich, better know as Rislav the Righteous, was born in 1E 448, the eighth child and fourth son of Queen Lynada and King Mhorus of Skingrad. He is believed to have led the typical life of a Colovian prince. He married Belene, the daughter of King Justinius of Kvatch, presumably to cement peace between the kingdoms. In 1E 478, a plague passed through Cyrodiil and decimated the royal family of Skingrad; in the end, only Rislav and his older brother Dorald, a priest of Marukh, survived. Dorald's first act was to cede the kingdom to the Alessian Empire, which incensed Rislav. He led a small band of cavalry from Kvatch to Skingrad, where they entered the city without conflict (as the guards of Skingrad were also offended by Dorald's act). In the castle courtyard, Rislav denounced Dorald and beheaded him with one stroke, and he quickly crowned as the new King of Skingrad.
However, Emperor Gorieus believed this did not revoke Dorald's action, and rode to Skingrad with a massive army to claim the city. When they arrived, Rislav famously told the Emperor that his party was too large to be accommodated, and that next time, he should write before he comes. A battle quickly ensued, which the Colovian forces won handily thanks to superior tactics. Gorieus' crippled army was forced to retreat, and this dramatic defeat proved to be the beginning of the end of the Alessian Empire.
 Saint Roris the Martyr (?b - ?d)
Patron of Furnishers and Caravaners. Captured by Argonians just before the Arnesian War, Roris proudly refused to renounce the Tribunal faith, and withstood the cruel tortures of Argonian sorcerers. Vengeance and justice for the martyred Saint Roris was the rallying cry of the Arnesian War. His robe is a valuable artifact to the Ordinators of Morrowind.
Former seer-mage of the Summerset Isle. Rynandor was one of the few survivors of the collapse of the Crystal Tower during the Oblivion Crisis and was one of the leaders of its defense and thus responsible for the death of many daedra during their successful attempt to raze the tower. Shortly after the Oblivion Crisis had subsided, he showed distrust towards the Thalmor when they claimed to be the ones who rid the Summerset Isle of the daedra horde. Due to the Thalmor's wide public support at this point in the Summerset Isle, they were able to denounce and exile him. Rynandor met a violent end shortly after his departure from Summerset Isle, likely at the hands of the Thalmor.
 Rythe Lythandas (?b - ?d)
A famous artist from Cheydinhal known for his lifelike paintings of the Great Forest of Cyrodiil. He inherited the Brush of Truepaint from his father, which is the reason for his success. He is married to Tivela Lythandas. In 3E 433, a thief robbed the brush from him and he became stuck in the Painted World. He once owned the enchanted Apron of Adroitness, which he gave to the Champion of Cyrodiil in return for retrieving the brush and saving him from the Painted World. He survived the sack of Cheydinhal by the undead army of Umbriel, and had returned to live in the city by 4E 201. He is the sole provider of Painted Troll Fat, a rare alchemical ingredient.
