- According to The Falmer: A Study, written by Ursa Uthrax, the Falmer descended into the Dwemer cities in Skyrim in flight from the Nords. There was an agreement between the two races, although the Dwemer didn’t really trust the Snow Elves. The Dwemer fed them toxic fungi which rendered them blind, rather than prolonged periods of time underground. There was a war between the Dwemer and the Falmer, until one day (because of events that transpired in nearby Morrowind) the Dwemer simply disappeared. The Falmer stuck around and continued living in the now-abandoned cities. (Thanks TNoD!)
