In Skyrim (or rather, Tamriel) there are 10 races, each with different abilities:
Altmer - High Elves. Bosmer - Wood Elves Dunmer - Dark Elves Orisimer - Orcs Nord - Men, natives of Skyrim Imperial - Men Redguard - Men, like Arabs Bretonian - Men (French?) Kajiht - Catmen Argonian - Lizardmen There are no classes, you can choose a Guardianstone, but that just enhances your abilities. There are 10 other Standing Stones too. However, when you level up, you can choose whether to enhance your Stamina (Sprint & Power attacks), your Health, or your Magicka (used when doing Magic). Then you add a perk to a Skill tree, there are lots of these, and each enhance your ability to do something, i.e. Lockpicking, or Enchanting, or Alteration. Other, non race-specific abilities (or perhaps curses/diseases) include Vanpirism, and Lycanthropy or being a Vampire / Werewolf (!!!)
