At one point he was slaughtering Khajit until he figured out they weren't elves.
The Ayleids deserved it (there was actually Aedra-worshipping Ayleids but they got beat out by the Daedric-worshipping Ayleids. Might have made a difference...maybe.), but the above leads me to believe he didn't distinguish the differences between Mer all that often.

Skyrim

Man, back when I had an xbox 360, I used to play Skyrim all the time. I built a really big house at the place in snowy area by the ocean. Sorry I ain't able to give exact location, it's been way too long.
It's too bad. I really miss that game. :(

The Khajit have warred with Valenwood when the Altmer weren't making us allies, and it's theorized the Khajit genocided the Bird-Men in Cyrodiil so I'm not going to go on about the Khajit. He could have been killing Bosmer. Though, if you're willing to go to Ayleid cities which have that freak-ass artwork...eh, IDK.

I keep thinking "How does some genocidal cyborg from the future mistake Khajiit for Bosmer", but I think he killed from the Ohmes.

that aside, ignoring Skyrim, the Khajiit aren't really innocent all things considered. I mean, no race is, but the Khajiit are too supremacist for a bunch of anthropomorphic felines

You get to mantle a god in Shivering Isles, whilst in KotN you put on some genocidal dick's armor and kill some Ayleid dick again.

Like I said, Shivering Isles was way better, but Knights of the Nine still had its moments. That final fight with Umaril is one of my favorites in gaming.

Supremacist? I haven't looked very much into Khajit history, so all I know is that they may have genocided a race ages and ages ago, so I'm not sure how else they could be supremacist.

I took a glance at Khajiti history/lore and they seem more inclined to be humble rather than supremacist to me. I'm sure there's a few prideful Khajit, but they don't even seem as stuck-up as the Dunmer.

I also read some Altmer/Summerset Isle-related lore and their society seems to be based on being smug assholes, so I stand by my Altmer-related assertions.
