Favourite character in the Elder Scrolls?
#1
I'm not sure if you do these games like me, but I always end up making characters and roleplaying them in these games, giving not a single foop about making the ultimate character. (This is known to have happened in Diablo 2 as well, a game that doesn't really allow deviation from a good build...) And now since I'm working hard on the Elder Scrolls RPG I have expanded many of my own characters and also made loads more to serve as short-term-NPCs.

What I am curious about is if other people do the same? And which of those characters have been your favourites? Please share why that is and a little bit about the character. This can also be applied to NPCs encountered in the games... such as Lydia or Lucien LaChance. I might even share snippets about my own faves. *wink wink*


Consider this a little bit like a research/inspiration for continuation of character-spawning.

I do, actually. I really don't know why, it just feels fitting to do it.

My character in Skyrim, for example, only really follow one school of combat, even though it's possible to learn all of them. And when I played Fable III, I unlocked everything for the sake of achievements, but I only ever used one school of combat.

So yes, I definitely do that.

I used to play Fallout (With some light modding) to get a character named Kira, a farm girl from the west turned assassin extraordinaire. She wore tactical stealth gear and specialized in the use of a sniper rifle.

This character later moved on to a game of Skyrim, where she was an Imperial farm girl from just outside the Imperial City. Around the time she reached adulthood, she left her family behind, taking her father's bow with her. She made her way to the North, to Skyrim where she planned to cross the border... I'm sure you can see where this is going. Eventually, she joined the Thieves Guild of Riften, learning to utilize stealth and other tricks of the trade. This went on for several years until she got to the point she is at now, perhaps the most feared and respected (Cause it's my game, deal with it :P) assassin in the lands.

Did have a few I liked, but I could give a short description of one or two from some games.

Dunmer in Morrowind who collected the 36 Lessons of Vivec. Achieved CHIM and believed Vivec was challenging him via a certain passage in one of the books. Took the back door route to the main Morrowind quest.

Breton in Oblivion that really feared the Daedra. Not knowing how all-powerful the Daedra are, he tried to collect their artifacts so he could hide in his secret hidey-hole in the sewers. Then took them to the Shivering Isles and buried them there. Never left. Did not become Sheogorath.

Breton in Skyrim with an unhealthy romantic attraction to Meridia and her statue. Visited once a month to drop off vampire dust and other proofs of undead killing to prove his love. Joined the Dawnguard.

Dunmer in Skyrim that believed he was the reincarnation of Saint Jiub. Dragons were his Cliff Racers.

…The Argonian Maid looks so adorable.
Perhaps it is your imperfection that which grants you free will, that allows you to persevere against cosmically calculated odds. You prevailed where the Titans' own perfect creations have failed.

I approve having read all the books in morrowind, which is still my favorite game of the series. Morroblivion is rather fun as well.

As for my favorite character in the series that I have ever made, it would have to be Rust. Whose personality has transcended into a few characters in games beyond it. He was a Nord with a mace and fire red hair. I wore heavy armor and lived my life for years as just a hunter of all things aggressive. I traveled Vardenfel killing anything that attacked me first and did a lot of odd jobs in cities. He had no magic and didn't approve of those that wasted time with such sorcerery. He instead put all his stock into his ability to mace people in the face until they stopped moving. Not the brightest person though. He was basically just your average under appreciated Nordic Barbarian.

He eventually became overpowered though and it wasn't as fun after I found a few really high end Reflect Damage and Reflect Spell armors during my tomb running.
Wow. Sometimes I forget the past.

Sheogorath in the Shivering Isles. Funniest sunuvabitch in Oblivion.

I used to do the same a few years back, transfer characters between games and adapting them to entirely new settings. It actually stopped with CotH when I realized I personally enjoyed creating more, in depth and tailored characters for RP. If Karma was present in Skyrim, would her incarnation in both games have similar karma?

What did she think about the Thieves Guild? Did she become a devout Nightingale? And I assume she became a black sister too? From her point of view, which was her favourite member of the thieves?

Haha, it is indeed your game and this made me laugh. Something in Skyrim that always bothered me was the lack of recognition post-questlines. Having reached leadership and fame/infamy should be reflected more, especially in the council.

WOOT?! I love them all, sounds like the more strange of my own characters. But I wonder if the dunmer from Morrowind survived the return of the Nerevarine, the Oblivion Crisis, the Red Year and the Accession War - what would he think of the Tribunal when they are revealed as false gods? Mainly considering the moment Vivec disappears from his own city and is never seen again.

Is that breton actually mad and consumed by paranoia or just really clever trying to hide under the nose of a daedric prince? The addition that he actually didn't do the main quest just make me love the concept even more. That's one of the reason I have finished so little of Skyrim, because my characters only do quests they would do.

I'd pay lots of septim to see that last dunmer end up in the Soul Carin and meet the original Jiub. What would they discuss? Could the original actually be convinced he, just as Nerevar, has a reincarnation?

Generally I like this kind of characters because they become rare. This is quite apparent on CotH and other roleplaying communities. Few choose the generic stereotype and therefore they become rare, almost unique. How much trouble did he get into for not knowing when to stop hitting people or things?


@Xigo - Really? You go for the argonian maid when there's Queen Barenziah?

Once I entered the middle of the map and got lost in the Red mountains I spent a few real days just pounding on things because they kept leading me all around the place or I'd see something in the hazy distance and be obligated to go off track and see what it was. He spent a lot of his game time pretty much doing meaningless chasing of cliffracers and guar.

Also I just watched that full video and laughed till I was crying. The other pranks are hilarious as well.
Wow. Sometimes I forget the past.
