First off you're misspelling "Nords".
Secondly: Nords are literally revamped Vikings.
Even the Nord rankings were inspired by Vikings. The King and his Jarls ruling over Skyrim just as they did in our history with Europe. Even Talos in Skyrim is a spinoff of mythology.The Vikings (from Old Norse víkingr) were the Norse explorers, warriors, merchants, and pirates who raided, traded, explored and settled in wide areas of Europe, Asia and the North Atlantic islands from the late 8th to the mid-11th century.
Thirdly: Badass artwork, just because.In Greek mythology, Talos (pron.: /ˈtɑːlɵs/; Greek: Τάλως, Talōs) or Talon (pron.: /ˈtɑːlɵn/; Greek: Τάλων, Talōn) was a giant man of bronze who protected Europa in Crete from pirates and invaders by circling the island's shores three times daily while guarding it.
