Argonians are one of ten playable races in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. They are a reptilian race, originally from Black Marsh. They can breathe under water for an unlimited amount of time and can use the power Histskin to regenerate health quickly. Argonians are considered by many players to be the second best race for playing as a thief, while the "best" race to play as a thief is the Khajiit.
Like the Khajiit, Argonians are often referred to as a 'Beast Race', as they resemble lesser animals moreso than humans and mer, from the perspective of those culturally dominant races. They existed largley in a state of slavery for many centuries until near the end of the Third Era, although even after three centuries' time they still, again like the Khajiit, experience significant discrimination.
