Tel Mora ("Tower Forest" in Dunmeris) was the northernmost of the Telvanni-held islands. It was constructed in the middle Merethic Era by Aldmeri explorers. It was the tower of the Telvanni Councilor Mistress Dratha, one of the oldest of the Telvanni wizard lords.
The Tel was typical of a wizard tower in that it had a reasonable community living in smaller mushroom dwellings around the base of the tower. The construction of Tel Mora was also interesting, since the tower itself was set between two islands with a network of walkways over the water.
All of the residents of Tel Mora were female. If you were a male, the guards may have allowed you to shop in the town and get service there, but you would've had to stay well clear of the tower itself. Dratha did not enjoy the presence of men and you might have found a far warmer welcome in nearby Vos, a short trip to the shore, costing only a few drakes at the harbor. Boats left regularly. There was also sea transport to Dagon Fel, Tel Aruhn or Sadrith Mora.
If you were a female, however, you would've found a warm welcome in this town and plenty of conversation at The Covenant, the local social center. You would've also found that the lower tower provided perhaps the best alchemical supply shop in Vvardenfell, because it supported the traditional idea of women's natural propensity for healing and herbal magic.
Dratha shared the Telvanni penchant for 'eccentricity', in this case manifesting in an acute and unreasoning hatred of males of any species. While male Telvanni of high rank could have talked to her safely and do chores, she was quite hostile toward male outsiders.
