Natives of the cosmopolitan province of Cyrodiil, the Imperials are some of the most well-educated, wealthy and well-spoken of the races in Tamriel. Imperials are also known for their discipline and training of their citizen armies. Because of this, the Imperials have dominated Tamriel for over 2,000 years. Imperials are different from Bretons and Nords by their darker skin, as opposed to the typically lighter complexion of Bretons and Nords. However, Imperial skin tone is not as dark as that of Redguards, who have the darkest color of skin of men. Imperials also have slightly sharper faces than other races of men.
