FACTIONS AND RACES

Factions in Elder Scrolls Online determine your characters starting location and loyalty both for the story element and for certain Player vs. Player (PvP) elements in the game.  You can travel and complete quest in other faction areas, but your PvP allegiance will not change unless you purchase the Any Race, Any Alliance token from the in-game Crown Store.
