    Where did the redgaurds populating Yokuda originate? Are redgaurds descended from Atmora or are they comepletely unrelated? Also where did the Akiviri men originate? Are the redgaurd and akaviri men even related to the descendants of the Atmoans? Are they both entirely different subsets of men? Same for the lefthanded elfs of Yokuda.

    The Redguards are mostly the descendants of the Forebears, who are themselves the Ra Gada who stayed in Tamriel after their invasion. Ra Gada themselves are the military wing of the Yokudans, who came from Yokuda (located west of Tamriel), which sank in the late first era, thus its non-appearance in most maps.

    Redguards are unrelated to Atmoran and much of their descendants (mostly Nedic and Nords).

    Akavirs originate from Akaviri, which is east of Tamriel. By location, I would assume that they are unrelated to the Yokudans, and are thus different subsets of men.

    Lefthanded Elves as the name suggests, are mer from Yokuda, and by that should be completely different from men. But to my limited understanding, they died out when Yokudan sank. Which suggests that they have no relation to modern Redguard or even the Ra Gada for that matter.
