The Daggerfall Covenant, the Ebonheart Pact and the Aldmeri Dominion form the three main Elder Scrolls Online factions. Each alliance has a unique story and mission as described below:

The Daggerfall Covenant
It’s led by High King Emeric (a Breton merchant lord) and is formed by three races of northwest Tamriel – the Bretons, Redguards and Orcs. Their mission is to restore the Second Empire by taking over the Ruby Throne and bring peace and prosperity back to Tamriel. They are a force to reckon keeping in mind that the Orcs are stalwart soldiers and talented armorers known for manufacture of fine weapons and armor. Bretons on the other hand have the gift of magic and diplomacy while the Rearguards are outstanding and supremely athletic warriors.



The Ebonheart Pact
The pact is comprised of the Argonians, Dark Elves and the Nords under the leadership of Jorunn, the Skald-King. This alliance is the most tenuous of the 3 factions because it consists of former foes allied for a common quest; to fight the invasion of the Akaviri slave masters and restore stability to the Empire. They derive their strength from great intellect and sorcery (Dark Elves), physical strength, excellent use of arms and ferocity (Nords) and use of blades, stealth and guerrilla tactics (Argonians).


The Aldmeri Dominion
Its mission is to stop the dangerous machinations of mankind and restore the Elven dominance in Tamriel by taking back the Ruby Throne. Unlike the other two factions, the Aldmeri Dominion is led by Queen Ayrenn (a 28-years old High Elf) known for her intelligence and genuine humility. It is composed of three races; the High Elves who were the original settlers of Tamriel, the Wood Elves who live in forests of Valenwood and the Khajiit. The latter have a wry wit and are fearless on the battlefield making them the strong arm of the pact. On the other hand, the wood elves are mischievous, nimble and good at self defense and archery as they were constantly under attack from the Colovian Imperials. The High Elves (also called the Altmers) are highly cultured, isolationist, powerful mages and great warriors (a trait which emerges when they feel under threat). They are the de facto leaders of the Aldmeri Dominion.
