They ran in only to see the beloved woman of the house , Helena, dead with a dagger plunged into he chest. No one was with her in the house it seemed, but then, Thron, due to training his eyes to see very small changes around him, saw it, Lachance, Using an invisibility spell to sneak away! He charged at him with is strong iron short sword, but it was no use. Lachance deflected the blow and banged Thron on his head with the butt of his dagger. This knocked Thron out cold. When he awoke, there was an orc man in heavy armor standing over him, holding the body of his fallen father. The orc explained everything. His father was killed by Lachance in a harsh battle. He also handed Thron a note:

To my future personal kill,
So, you tried to kill me just because you lost your pure, miserable mother... Well... I have a mother to, and she wanted your's dead. I can see it in your eyes now as I stand over your limp, miserable body. We will meet again. I will kill you, but not now. You are not even worth my blade yet. I will let you grow stronger. I will watch as you grow. And one day, you will be sleeping, and I will come. I will as if you want to join this Wonderful family. If you say no, I will let you strike first...dear...child.
- Lucian Lachance

Teenage: The orc took him in, taught him how to move in heavy armor, and how to use many weapons. The orc went off one day to return to his home in skyrim, leaving his student with these words "You are strong, young Thron, stronger then even me! You can even use magic to!

I have several, so I'll just keep it short:

Bellatrix Sheogorath:

Posted Image

My first character and the one I achieved the most with so far. A Nord, since I wanted as many strenght bonuses as possible in order to carry loot. In terms of personality, she was a typical "blood knight", a purebred warrior who enjoyed fighting for the sake of fighting. For those here who like anime: I originally intended her to be Saber from Fate/Stay Night but with the personality of Zaraki Kenpachi from Bleach. She was intelligent, but had a tendency to solve all problems with violence. Her primary motivation was to grow stronger and aquire more power in order to overcome even greater challanges, until she either died or was most powerful being in the universe. (Yeah, she really wasn't sublte, or modest, in any way.) I imagine she was in jail for getting drunk and stabbing the captain of the city guard in "self defense".

She finished all the major questlines except the Dark Brotherhood (due to an unfortunate glitch) and, ironically, the Fighters Guild. (Due to boredom and being way overleveled when she started.) She took to the Shivering Isles storyline with gusto and became very fond of Sheogorath. After becoming he Mad God of Shivering Isles, she took the name Bellatrix Sheogorath to honor him.

One peculiarity of her character was he undying hatred of the undead, particularly vampires. Because of this, she maintained a personal and very one-sided enmity with (the completely unsuspecting) Countess Narina Carvain, whom Bellatrix was convinced was secretly a vampire.

Ultimately, I stopped playing her because I ran out of interesting stuff for her to do and there wasn't a lot that could top becoming a Daedric Prince. IIRC, her level was something around 30-40 at the time.

Flora the Red Dragon:

Posted Image

My second character, a bosmer. Flora was simultaniously the spiritual successor for Bellatrix and the prototype for Ashae. (See below.) Like Bellatrix, Flora was a free spirit who mainly just wanted adventure and fight challanging opponents. Her motivation was a bit more refined, though - she wanted to become the greatest swordswoman alive. Flora was a swashbuckling blade for hire and a good-hearted but slightly selfish person with little respect for rules or social mores that didn't suit her. The kind of woman who did whatever she felt like if she could get away with it, in other words, though I always imagined her as someone who had an easy time making friends. I'm not sure how she ended up in jail, but I bet she was convinced she didn't derserve it. She was a promising character, but I ended up distracted from her story when I went and created Ashae.

Ashae Whitestrike:

Posted Image

Superficially very similar to Flora - indeed, she was intended as a kind of palette swap - this dunmer warrior also sought ultimate mastery of swordsmanship, but for somewhat less selfish reasons: Her intent to perfect her fighting skills grew from her desire to combat evil as effectively as possible. Ashae is a "white knight" sort of character, a noble warrior who's goal is to rid the world of evil and darkness. Unflinchingly brave and completely devoted to her ideals, she could never see a wrong without wanting to right it, never leave a just cause undefended, and was generally willing to offer her aid to anyone who needed it. She believed that even should the entire world descend into darkness, there must alwas be a single shining light no matter how small. Because of this, she made for an ideal heroine, though naturally her moral character wouldn't have suited the Thieves Guild or Dark Brotherhood questlines. (On that note, I really have no idea how she ended up in prison.) Though she and Flora were very different, they would probably have been good friends -in a opposites attract sort of way- had they ever met each other.

Elena McCoy:

Posted Image

My current favorite character. Elena is... a bit different from my previous ones. Though she's technically a Breton, I actually imagine her as a visitor from a more modern world. Essentially, she's a Lara Croft-sort of character with some Chronicles of Amber-style dimension hopping tossed in: A treasure hunter and hobby archeologist - possibly immortal or very long lived - who travels through various planes and dimensions looking for artifacts and treasure. Originally she just stopped by in Tamriel on her way to the Shivering Isles but somehow got herself thrown in jail and ended up staying much longer then expected. Now she even owns property in the empire and has started to really care for Mundus. The occasional ventures into the Oblivion portals are to her not much different then the jumps between worlds she routinely does anyway.

Elena doesn't wear armor, prefering highly enchanted adventurer's gear from her homeworld. Due to her lifestyle and origins, I imagine her as having nearly unlimited funds and access to top quality equipment. This has meant that she has always been slightly overpowered, but I mostly consider that fitting.

One thing that sets her appart from my other characters is that while she is a very potent fighter, she she is not strictly speaking a warrior. This means that she will accept quests that involved recovering artifacts or exploring dungeons but avoid those with objectives of martial nature. She never saw a ruin she didn't like and enjoys collecting swords and unique books. Aside from her fighting skills, Elena also knows a bit of magic and is a skilled burglar, though she usually only steals things when she needs them for something and has been known to put stolen items back once she is done with them.
