Bretões (ou Bretanos) são os humanos descendentes dos Manmer Aldmeri-Nédicos da Era Merética, e são agora os habitantes da província de Pedra Alta. Eles são unidos em cultura e idioma, apesar de serem divididos politicamente, pois Pedra Alta é uma região fracionada. Bretões compõem a plebe, tropa, e elite mágica dos reinos feudais que competem por poder. Muitos são magos natos com resistência a magicka de nascença. São conhecidos por uma proficiência em pensamento abstrato e costumes únicos. Bretões aparentam, e, por muito, com outros humanos de pele pálida. São normalmente de estatura não tão muscular quanto os Nords ou Rubraguardas. A ancestralidade élfica deles é normalmente detectável somente por uma inspeção minuciosa de suas sobrancelhas, orelhas ou bochechas, apesar de muitos Bretões parecerem mais Nórdicos ou Imperial do que qualquer outra coisa. A grande diversidade da aparência deles é de ser esperada por conta de sua socidade politicamente fracionada, apesar de suas roupas, sotaques, costumes e nomes serem bem uniformes.

In-Game Description

In addition to their quick and perceptive grasp of spellcraft, even the humblest of High Rock's Bretons can boast a resistance to magic. Bretons can call upon the Dragonskin power to absorb spells.

Traits

  • Magic Resistance ability (FormID 000aa01f): Breton blood grants a 25% resistance to magic, constant
  • Dragonskin greater power (FormID 000aa022): Absorb 50% of the magicka from hostile spells for 60 seconds, once per day
  • Height: 1 (M), 0.95 (F)
  • Bretons start with the spell Conjure Familiar.

Gameplay

Bretons are particularly skilled in Conjuration, which means that they can summon creatures and weapons to aid them in battle. They are resistant to magic, making them exceptionally useful against other magic users.

It should be noted that Bretons do not have any bonuses to Destruction magic, giving the player a fairer choice between using offensive magic or weapons; Breton skill bonuses are well suited for support magic.

Many Court Wizards are Bretons. Also, numerous members of the College of Winterhold are Bretons. Bretons are especially common throughout The Reach. They frequently make appearances in a variety of roles, from traders to battlemages.

Notes

  • There is a loading screen hint that incorrectly claims Bretons have 50% Magic Resistance, as was the case in Morrowind and Oblivion, but they have only 25% Magic Resistance in Skyrim.
  • Between Agent of Mara, the Alteration perk Magic Resistance, and The Lord Stone it's possible for a Breton to passively have the maximum effective Magic Resistance of 85%, while this would leave any other race 15% short.
  • Bretons are the only race capable of reaching 100% Spell Absorption in the base game (by activating their racial power and having the Atronach Stone).
  • While game dialogue sometimes distinguishes between the natives of the Reach and Bretons, in-game data does not and all Reach natives are classified as Bretons.
