About This File

Tera Elin Race

Skyrim Special Edition


Tera Elin Race for Skyrim Legendary Edition





Building corporeal forms around tiny fragments of her own divine being, the goddess Elinu created the elins. Their physical appearance reflected the youngest daughter of Arun's wish for beauty and peace. Their queen governs both the elins and the poporis, with whom they share a history and a mission. The queen and her forces have proven their wisdom and diplomatic prowess in peace, and their tactical and fighting prowess in war.
The Elins have one driving goal: If it's not good for nature, stop it. Older and wiser than they appear, they join with forces of nature and mortal races to sweep their enemies from the battlefield. Their speech is often dark, forthright, and otherworldly, and their sense of humor can border on vicious.

  • Optional ElinRace.esm with extended color options.

Adds the Elins as a playable race in Skyrim Special Edition.



  1. Skyrim Special Edition

Elin Race Package

  • FILE: SSE_MAIN_TeraElinRace_v1_0-20170116.7z


  • Main Elin files.
    • ElinRaceTaint.esm, which adds the various Elin hairs, has been merged with the main master file (ElinRace.esm).

    [*]Elin voices for combat and dragon shouts for Skyrim, Dragonborn, and Dawnguard. [*]Summon Elin Ring.




When equipped, the ring summons Elin followers. You will see pop-up menus to (1) select their level (weak -> strong), (2) health penalty when summoning (you also suffer a health penalty when they die), and (3) how many to summon (the maximum is 48).




About the health penalty when summoning. If you do not have enough health to summon the amount of Elins you selected from the menu, you will only receive the max number of Elins allowed to prevent killing yourself.




After summoning, you will receive the following Spell and Shout:




Elin Ward


Adept level Restoration spell.



Increases armor rating by 80 points and negates up to 80 points of damage and effects.





Voice of the Elins (2-word Shout)


Word #1 gathers your summoned Elins to your location.



Word #2 slowly heals your summoned Elins.





Howl of Fear


If your playable Elin has the ability to tranform into a werewolf, your summoned Elins also transform into werewolves. The werewolf shout, Howl of Fear, now has the same effects as the Voice of Elins shout.





The summon ring can be crafted at the blacksmith forge under the
category. Be advised that one of the ingredients is a
. Something difficult to find very early in the game.
  • 1st-Person Camera Fix.




This fixes the issue with the 1st-person camera being too high (adult height). It's not perfect because Skyrim will glitch and move the camera lower or higher than intended.




I have been playing with the camera fix and it only glitched 1% of the time...so far.


The camera fix is the only solution until a suitable camera mod is released for Skyrim SE.



OPTIONAL - Color-Matching Ears and Tails

  • [2017-01-28] [FIXED]
  • FILE: SSE_MAIN_OPTIONAL_TeraElin_ColorMatch_v1_0-20170128.7z
  • BSA only.
  • Allows the Elin ears and tails, both standalone and hair sets, to match color with the hairs.

Install FIRST: Tera Elin race main package.
Install SECOND: Tera Elin Color Match option.
Allow overwriting of 'ElinRace.BSA'.


This is for both the Normal main package and the Color-Match main package.


You have 2 methods to select the Elin ears/tail sets when in the Character Customization menu (console command, 'showracemenu'):
HAIR > HAIRS selection slider. The ears/tail sets are part of the Elin hairs.
HAIRS > ADDITIONS selection slider. These are standalone sets and can be used with the earless/tailless Elin hairs or custom Skyrim hairs.


OPTIONAL - Extended Colors
FILE: SSE_MAIN_OPTIONAL_TeraElinRace_ExtendedColors_20170125.7z


Due to SKSE, RaceMenu, and Enhanced Character Edit not yet compatible with Skyrim Special Edition, I have modified the Elin master file (ElinRace.esm) to include additional colors.

  • Extended hues, saturation, and luminosity. Not too much, not too little.
  • Additional colors for hair, skin, makeup, and warpaints.
  • Works with the Elin Color-Matching option.

Install FIRST: Tera Elin race main package.
Install SECOND: Tera Elin Extended Colors option.
Allow overwriting of 'ElinRace.esm'.


FIXES/PATCHES - for Any of the MAIN Mods


Horse Riding Animations - 2018-04-17

FILE: SSE_TeraElinRace_HorseRiding_Animation-n-Fix.7z

Greatly reduces the clipping into the horse due to the Elin's size.

Adds horseback idle animations.

Works on any horses that uses the original Skyrim horse riding animations.



Tera Elin main package.



  • Install with mod manager or manually.  There are no special installation procedures.
  • FNIS not required.



Elin Voice Fix - 2017-03-07

  • FILE: SSE_UPDATE_OPTION_Elin_Voice_COMPLETE_v2.1-20170307.7z
  • Version 2.1 fixes the problem with version 2 not playing any of the Elin voices.

NOTE: Soul Tear shout is silent.



  • Tera Elin main package.


  • Install manually or with a mod manager.

Adds followers, NPCs, additional customizatin features, armors, and race exclusive animations.



  1. Skyrim Special Edition.
  2. Main Elin race files.


Elin Idle Animation Redone v2.0.



  • Remade using the exclusive animation paths from PC Exclusive Animations.
  • Now compatible with the latest FNIS.
  • For now only features the base idle animation; the Elin dance will be added as an emote in a future update.
  • *NEW* Choice of 2 variant of the base idle animation.
  • *NEW* Option to use the child sitting animation to fix some of the clipping when sitting on chairs and benches.
  • *NEW* Tera (Castanic) animations. Replaced most of the Skyrim animations.


FNIS v7.0 Beta or newer




Before installing v2, uninstall v1 to ensure there are no conflicts or animation oddities.

  1. Install FNIS.
  2. Install Elin Idle Animation Redone and allow overwriting of the files in TOOLS > GENERATEFNIS_FOR_USERS folder.
  3. Run GenerateFNIS for Users.exe.


Elin CBBE-UNP Body Replacers.



  • FILE: SSE_OPTION_TeraElinBody_CBBE-UNP_v3_9-20170131.7z


*** If you want to use BBP or TBBP armors and outfits then you need to install the following. ***

NOTE: If there are no noticeable breast bounce, even when naked, then install SSE XPMSE and remember to select the 'BBP MAP' option which adds the breast and butt bounce animations.


NOTE 2: XPMSE and FNIS is not necessarily required for the BBP and TBBP animations that is included with the Elin CBBE-UNP body replacer package (I have tested without using FNIS), but if your Elin and NPCs in general are stuck in a T-pose then you have 2 options:

  • Install FNIS then run the FNIS Generator for Users (select Gender Animation fix + Arm Fix).
  • Delete the BBP-TBBP animations (located in MESHES > ACTORS > CHARACTER > ANIMATIONS > FEMALE).

Allows the Elins to use a custom CBBE or UNP body.
3 options for CBBE and UNP body:

  • Slim (flatchest) (NO BBP, NO TBBP).
  • BBP (with breasts)
  • TBBP (with breasts)

3 options for CBBE and UNP textures:

  • Fairskin.
  • Normal.
  • Sunburn Bikini.


Elin CBBE-UUNP BodySlide Presets + Outfit Studio Conversion Templates.

  • FILE: OPTION_Bodyslide-OutfitStudio_ElinBody_PresetsandConversionTemplates.7z


NOTE: Bodyslide/Outfit Studio for SkyrimSE (SSE) does not have any files for the following:

  • Conversion Sets
  • Shape Data
  • Slider Categories
  • Slider Groups
  • Slider Preseets
  • Slider Sets


This is why you need to also download Bodyslide/Outfit Studio for original Skyrim. Extract the archive and go to the BODYSLIDE subfolder. Copy the folders I previously mentioned then paste them in the BODYSLIDE subfolder from Bodyslide/Outfit Studio for SSE.


There are 2 Elin body Presets for CBBE and UUNP:
Elin (flatchest).
Elin Curvy (with breasts).


There are 6 conversion templates to convert armors to the Elin bodies:
7Base (bombshell) to Elin.
7Base (bombshell) to Elin Curvy.
CBBE to Elin.
CBBE to Elin Curvey.
UUNP to Elin.
UUNP to Elin Curvey.


How to Choose a Bodyslide Preset or Elin Conversion Template.


Elin-Skyrim Hair Packs.

  • FILE: TeraElinRace - Offsite Download Links.txt

NOTE #1: These can be downloaded offsite. You need to download a text file which lists the hair packs and download links.
I made separate hair packs instead of an All-in-One pack. Mega, the file storage site, has problems uploading a 1gb+ file. I might create an AIO pack in the future when done adding any additional hairs for the Elins.


NOTE #2: The hair packs contain only the hair meshes and textures from the original hair mods. These are only playable for the Elins.


NOTE #3: All hair meshes have been updated for Skyrim SE.


Elin-Apachii Full.

  • Includes hairs from Apachii Hairs v1.5 and v1.6.


  • Includes hairs from smaller hair mods: Hepsy, JHairs, Sims, and Twintail (Twosideup).

Elin-Oblivian Final.

  • All hairs from the Oblivian final version.

Elin-zzJay Full

  • Includes hairs from all of zzJay's hair mods: NewHair, CCC, mySims, Cazy, and NewSea.




NPC Replacers and Additions.


Elin NPC and Enemies Complete (Skyrim. No DLCs, yet).

  • FILE: SSE_OPTION_Elin NPC and Enemies Complete_v1_0-20170110.7z

Does the following:

  • Replaces certain unique (female) characters (i.e., all female housecarls including Rayya).
  • Adds new NPCs to Whiterun and Mage's College.
  • Replaces some of the randomly generated hostile and non-hostile NPCs (i.e., Imperials, Stormcloaks, bandits, witches, necromancers, and hunters).
  • Adds new Elin enemeies to the level list separate from what is originally generated by the game.

NOTE: TDA made changes to the Elin mage instructor. Now when she demonstrates elemental magic in the Aracanaeum she will not damage and/or aggro any followers.
Thank you, TDA!
