Her golden mane is usually tied into pigtails to keep the long unruly hair out of her eyes when out traveling or when she expects danger, when relaxing she literally tends to let her hair down and quite enjoys the feeling of just sitting by a fireplace just brushing the silken strands in silence. While perhaps not as muscular as most of her male companions she none the less have strong muscles hidden under her fair skin and very little fat on her body. Her lips are quick to curl into genuine smiles that reach her pale blue eyes and that combined with her happy go lucky attitude make her seem smaller and less muscular then she really is and usually a closer examination will reveal her calling as a swordswoman (unless of course her armour and sword gives it away). Her right arm have a long rather ugly scar along the forearm where a shard of her old broken sword imbedded itself and with no healing potions available she had to tend to it herself. Sexual orientation:
Bisexual. While she is more attracted to men a few years ago she found herself having a short and stormy relationship with a fellow female guard that taught her to be ware of being intimate with those you work with.Back story:
Having grown up as the daughter of one of Skyrims noblest heroes who singlehandedly (with a little help) saved the Empire; or at least to hear him tell the tale; wasnt very easy but she isnt one to let adversity stand in her way. Truth to be told Thorgar Bullroarer never was much of a hero, rather his part in the events that would shape Skyrim and beyond was far more modest. A braggart, and unabashed lech he may be, but he is also one of Skyrims most talented armoursmiths and it is in this fashion the Dragonborn and his more courageous companions would use his talents. But being seen along with such noble heros people just assumed that Thorgar was one of them and he wasn't late in cashing in on that. As things settled down Thorgar married a tavern wench; their their daughter Ilfhild is pretty sure her mom did most of her work on her back; and he settled in Windhelm where they had one daughter (much to Thorgars open disgust as he wanted a son). Ilfhild would grow up with her father working in the smithy and much to her fathers surprise she showed to have a talent for wielding the weapons he was making, and so she would grow up. First when little she would help her mother out in the tavern and then as she got older and stronger she would lug coal and metals for her father until her talent started emerging when he would reluctantly teach her what he knows in the art of wielding one of the heavy nordic swords. The many years of helping him in the smithy has tempered her body and muscles so she took to the blade naturally and soon surpassed anything he could teach her and with a suprisingly heavy heart he gifted her with a set of armour that he had made for her and while she quite loudly questioned the design she couldn't blame the end product, while leaving more then one area open to attack the inborn enchantment seems to extend to her exposed skin helping it turn a blade as easily as the fine steel would. Thus armed she joined the city guard and there would receive a more complete education in weaponry from a teacher that wasnt constantly trying to oogle her curves as they did interesting things inside of the padded practice armours.Major skills1:
One handed weapons2:
She wears an old nordic sword at her side at almost all times, the handle well worn and fits her callused hand perfectly, the edge still as sharp as the day she wrested it from a Draugr after her old sword had shattered on his shield. From the same barrow she also retrieved an old bow that she has since become at least moderately proficient in.
