The Dovahkiin (Skyrim)Current Occupation:
Adventurer / PrisonerHome World Information:
Nirn is referred to by otherworldly beings as the mortal plane. The exact reasons and specifics behind Nirn's creation are largely not known for certain. However, all agree that the deity Lorkhan and the Eight Divines played pivotal roles in the creation of the waterlogged planet. Two moons, Secunda and Masser, orbit Nirn. They are Lorkhan's sundered corpus. Nirn is the center of Mundus, which itself is the "hub" of The Elder Scrolls universe's "wheel." The heavens beyond Nirn are star-filled. These stars are holes or portals through Oblivion to Aetherius, and carry magical significance due to the beings which tore them open, the Magna Ge.Appearance/Style Description:
The Dovahkiin is a striking blonde haired blue eyed woman of Nord stock. Her skin is the color of pale milk and remains silky, though several jagged scars from past battles can be found across her petite frame. The armor she bears seems to be weaved of leather, bone, and steel though magical enchantments extend their function to awesome effect. Personality:
To some she may seem a bit simple at first, meeting questions and declarations with little more than a blank stare and simple response, though her wide assortment and mastery of combat skills more than make up for her unassuming personality. History:
Through her formative years the Dovahkiin was much like any other Nord child. She played with other children in the foothills of Skyrim's many mountains, and aspired one day become a renown baker in her village. Fate had other plans however, as only a few days after her 19th birthday a simple misunderstanding found her a prisoner of the Imperial Legion and on her way to an executioners block. The commander on the scene showed little sympathy, directing their soldiers to force her head down before the blunt and bloody axe. It was only thanks to the sudden reappearance of the dragon Alduin that her neck was spared, setting her forth on her path. In her travels across the land, the young woman soon discovered she held a latent talent for combat, and the extremely unique ability to absorb the souls of dragons she felled. Thanks to a deafening summons and the urging of the people she'd helped, she ventured to the Throat of the World- the tallest mountain in the land to speak with the mysterious grey beards. The ancient monk order educated her to her lineage, the nature of her power, and her true name... 'Dovahkiin' or Dragonborn, a warrior born not with a mortal soul but with the soul of a dragon and destined to hunt their spiritual kin. Through much strife and struggle she eventually went on to slay the dragon Alduin and bring peace to much of Skyrim through her martial skills, but at a consuming cost. In her travels she was required to make sacrificial pacts with many Daedra beings of immense power, each one wanting her very soul. As time passed forward, death did eventually find the Dovahkiin and her spirit slipped away into Oblivion where each of the Daedra vied to collect their prize. They argued and fought for ages, but once no clear owner could be decided the malevolent princes decided to take the most strange path imaginable- they gave the option to the Dovahkiin herself. Much to their dismay though, she held that no being would claim dominion over her soul. Displeased by her answer the Daedra once again gave her soul a living body so that she could again know the pain of the flesh and all the horrors they could conjure. However the Dovahkiin's will never wavered once even after years of physical and mental abuse, never surrendering with an answer to end the torment. After a time the eternal beings grew bored and deposited her in the deepest darkest hell they could find, as far away from Mundus as possible to rot for the remainder of time. Current Situation:
To be determinedWeapons:
Two Handed Long Sword, Axe & Shield, Bow & Arrow.Special Powers:
She is trained in several schools of magic including Alteration/Conjuration/Destruction/Illusion/and Restoration, as well as the Dragonborn's unique ability to speak the dragon language and the powerful shouts created by it. Strengths:
Martial Combat - The Dragonborn is a warrior at heart and can hold her own in a fight. With her sword and shield in hand there is almost no challenge she can't engage.
Wide Skill Set - In her lifetime the Dovah was trained by many great masters in all manner of skills from Magics, Martial Combat, and labors. From wielding a sword, throwing a fireball, or crafting and enchanting weapons and armor- the Dovahkiin knows a thing or two.
Thu'um (Shouts) - Shouts use the vocalization of specific draconic words of power to create magical effects. Each should is made up of three words, however one or two words of a given shout may be used but the effect is correspondingly less powerful.
Bag of Holding - A little present she won from a visiting god. The unassuming leather pouch tied to her hip can hold a virtually unlimited amount of weight or goods. Weaknesses:
Thu'um Cooldown - While her shouts are all powerful and posses the ability to shape reality to her whim, each shout takes a small toll on her mortal body and depending on the power of the shout it can take her a while to recover before being able to use her Thu'um again.
Weak Magics - While she is able to cast different spells, the Dovahkiin never specialized as a mage and as such her magic's potency can be a little lacking.
Slow Gear Swap - While her Bag of Holding allows her to carry all manner of supplies, in the heat of combat it can be extremely difficult to locate, extract and equip the item.
Marked Soul - While her body exist as a free woman, her soul has been marked by the unfortunate pacts she made a lifetime ago. As such every Daedric prince of her homeworld is able to sense her no matter what plane of existence she flees too. Though what they may do with this knowledge is anyone's guess as the Daedra are often known to be fickle at best.
