Ysgramor, an ancient Nordic king who was first to land in Skyrim at Hsaarik Head, came to Tamriel fleeing civil war in Atmora. After the elves killed all but him and his two sons, he fled back to Atmora, later to return with the legendary Five Hundred Companions and drive the Elves from Skyrim and Solstheim. Since he is the first known human to transcribe Nordic speech using Elven principles of writing, he is credited with being the first human historian. Most myths associated with him have Herma-Mora, the “Demon of Knowledge,” as the antagonist.
