    <:::::::::{|===[}~ Gear and Fighting Style ~{]===|}:::::::::>
    [Note that the Artwork Above this is an almost spot on idea of what I would like her to be wearing]

    HEAD: She usually prefers nothing covering her head or face, however when it does get particularly hot or cold, the thin red cloak that hangs down her back carries the hood she wears.

    TORSO: She wears a fairly thin under-shirt the color of her cloak, over that, is a thin hide vest-and I mean really thin, that runs rather long, and over that, is an upper-torso/chest pad type armor crafted from Duneripper hide/shell - which is also incredibly light and rather flexable. These layers give her the exact amount of protection she needs without sacrificing virtually any mobility.

    ARMS AND SHOULDERS: Her shoulders are covered by the same armor that covers her upper torso, with small and low profile pauldrons. Her forearms are rapped in a cloth similar to that which her cloak is made of, and attached over top the cloth are plates made of the same material as her chest and pauldron armor. Her hands are wrapped in black cloth, excluding the fingers, to allow for better grip of her blades and to resist blisters.

    WAIST: Her waist is belted together rather simply, holding the leather from her cuirass to her body, and adding hip plating the same as her chest armor, as well as holding sheathes for her swords and daggers.

    LEGS AND FEET: Outside of her hip padding, her legs are rather uncovered aside from the cloth pants she wears. Wrapped around her lower legs and feet, as simple leather and hide boots, matching the color of her dark brown cloth pants.

    EVERYDAY CARRY: A waterskin, a pouch of coins, both attached to her belt, some pages of the Book of Circles folded up and tucked into her armor, and her mother's amulet around her neck.

    WEAPONS: She carries 4 tools which she expertly turns to weapons; two swords and two knives. Trying to bring honor the ways of old traditions, Khalila has crafted her swords as such. Made from hours and hours of ceremonial crafting, the high-carbon steel blades have been sharpened and are maintained sharp enough to shave an egg without shattering it's shell, just as the master Hunding directs in the pages of the Book of Circles. Though possessing a profile similar to that of a traditional Hammerfell Scimitar, she designed the shapes of the blades to be slightly more efficient, light and controlled; the hilt, instead of having the hand guarding length, forms and blends in from the blade to the handle. Like the hilt, the pommel also blends with the handle made from mahogany, and are made from the left over steel folded on top of itself and other grades of steel 100 times into a dark colored Damascus [Click for Example]. Differing herself from the ancient traditions, her swords aren't the only set of blades she carries on her person. She has two unique daggers she has sheathed on the back of her body, both of which she purchased from a shop in High Rock. With blades perfectly sharpened and shined, and jewels adorned on either sides of their purple heartwood handles, the perfect craftsmanship of these blades are a testament to the true master-smiths of Highrock [Click for Example].

    FIGHTING ABILITIES: The title Sword-singer isn't truly one used anymore, because the last of them died out long ago, along with their schools of training and the masters themselves. The once true art form and form of martial combat revered and almost worshiped by Redguards so widely hasn't existed for Eras, and likely never will again. Yet, this has not stopped many Redguard warriors from trying to revive this ancient art. Kalila is one of them. As a self proclaimed historian on the subject, most of her research has revolved around learning and uncovering all that she can about this ancient practice. Though she has never been formally trained in any combat techniques outside of what her brother and father have shown her, her readings of the ancient texts on the subject combined with the witnessing of many master swordsman have made her quite the skilled fighter. She puts forth everything that she has learned and taught herself when it comes to fighting opponents and believes in all the ancient rules she has learned were taught when the Sword-singers were still alive and well. To her, the swords are merely a tool, for she is the real weapon - as is taught and told by what she has researched. She has practiced with many objects and weapons alike to prove this statement true; many a battle has been won with the limbs of trees to the oars of boats - because any true master of the sword is capable of lethality with any extension. Along with many other teachings of the practice, crossing swords with her is quite a challenge to walk away from.

    Just as he swords, she is equally as deadly with her daggers. Though more than capable of using them in open combat, she seldom does so, as the weapons are much more effective in a quick and stealthy type of way. Dispatching foes from behind and by surprise is the most efficient way she has found to kill with these blades.

    FIGHTING STYLE: She prefers to be in the fray, flaying and abusing the bodies and psyches of her enemies with swift strikes. With her mind quick and her blades quicker, it takes more focus and determination to keep up with her than most other blade wielding fighters. Disarming tends to be a more secondary route of attack, as quickly carving, impaling and dominating her opponents is more than enough to make her foes drop. She particularly enjoys to use only one blade, quickly swapping from one hand to the next in a complicated flurry of attacks; for nothing more than just proving to herself that she can. Her default is a blade in each hand, like a whirlwind of lethal steel carving it's way through anything standing in it's wake. Those with shields only have seconds to thank them before she finds a way to get between them. Those with balls of flame and of magical fame find their attacks firing every which way, missing the target before it's to late. Arrows from afar will leave her scarred, but can only stop her briefly; because before too long, her stamina will return and no matter the wounds she'll go out of her way to make even.

    Her secondary blades provide an equal amount of grace, though many don't get the chance to see it. A sparkle in the corner of their eye will only give them seconds to wonder, and before they know it their bodies are no longer breathing. In the rare cases the glint of her silver short-blades yield a quick reaction, her retaliation is more than prepared, and her faults look nothing more than planned.

    Only a fool could tell and assume they have complete immunity, however. Once out-manned, or overwhelmed, she can only last so long before the flurry becomes a flail. Her defenses are slim, and parries and deflects can only go so far; for so long. If unable to defend long enough to disarm, and her opponent can hold strong against her, it's easy to feel the tides of war turn against her. At a range, is where she finds her greatest weakness. While magic and arrows can fly without meeting their target, it won't be long until they inevitably do. When her ranged opponents place themselves far out of reach, without decent cover she'll only be met with defeat.

    <:::::::::{|===[}~ History ~{]===|}:::::::::>

    UPBRINGING: Her mother a half-Nord pilgrim and her father an acclaimed historian and relic collector, Kalila's life at home was rather abnormal in the area they lived. Nothing more than a quiet settlement, the fame her father had gained came from the areas not far outside of their home. The Hall of Virtues of War was found less than a mile's walk from their front door, and it's importance in the traditions of Hammerfell's most ancient of history drew many a traveler, sight-seer and pilgrim to the landmark. Her father was a veritable expert on the hall and it's contents, no matter how much was missing within and how bedraggled the building actually was. Daily, he'd manage to uncover something new to add in it's history, slowly growing a small museum for all the traveler's to witness. Many were Redguard warriors, native to the sands and cities of the province, come to learn and pay homage to the location where every Redguard warrior's ancestors once trained.

    Her mother had told her the story of her parents meeting quite often, at her very request, as the story of their love was something she had looked forward to finding herself. She had come to the settlement with her family for rest on their way to the coast, and that's when her father laid eyes on her. She said he couldn't take his eyes off of her, and stared with a face so blank it seemed like he had been looking right into her soul. So she talked to him. And from there, a bud of love was planted, and it never stopped growing. He gave her an Amethyst pendant he had made the night before her family's departure, as a parting gift; something to remember him by for the rest of her life he said. She returned a mere month later, with her family's blessing to stay in the small settlement with him if that was indeed what she wanted to do.

    From there it was only a matter of time before she was born, and her brother before her. Kalila grew up with that story, among many others ranging from stories of heroes from her father, or stories of elves and great cities from her mother. Along with her brother, her father gave them an education within their own home, teaching them to read and write and all sorts of useful knowledge for their lives ahead of them. What she and her brother both favored learning, was that of the blade. While most would think any mother would forbid such teachings at a young age, most mothers are not like theirs, or like mothers of Redguard descent. The act of swordsmanship was a form of art practiced and passed down by those in Hammerfell for generations, or those who believed in tradition, that is.

    Until their adolescence, they were taught this way and then their parents gave them the world and infinite avenues to follow for the rest of their lives. Her brother, being many years older than her, took to the wind. He wanted to follow in the steps of their mother, and see the world while chronicling every step of the way. He wanted to return to Ska'vyn with stories of adventure and the study of the many places that he passed through, and add a library of books to their father's collection. Kalila, on the other hand, wanted to help her father continue to add to his collection, and learn what she had always found fascinating. History. History of the world and of Hammerfell, of her people and their beliefs and religion, of the world and the people around them.

    She did this for quite some time, and before to long, she found herself becoming obsessed in something she hadn't expected; the very Hall and practices it once taught. In the entire life she had near the Hall, she had never found it particularly interesting. In fact, she hadn't really preferred using the sword either, she was too fascinated with the gods and stories of those who had mastered the sword so long ago. Escaping in the mastery of others instead of seeking it for herself. But somewhere along the line all of that changed. She got lost in learning the paths that Sword-singers had to take in order to master their craft, and how respected and necessary their order was. Their cause was one of the things that truly inspired her, to protect herself and more importantly others. The idea of a society where everyone knew how to wield a sword is what had bored her, but knowing about a society where everyone knew the sword and those who mastered the sword so well they were capable of winning unwinnable wars and defeating danger no matter how ungodly it may have been. She suddenly grew drawn to that mastery, and her parents could sense it. So they sent her on her way. Her father gave her the parting gift of knowledge, ancient pages of the Book of Circles, the very pages that belonged to his private collection. Her mother, the very pendant her father had given here when they first met.

    With guidance toward the North, she went on her way to begin her journey. From crafting her blades, and meeting the greatest of smiths, high nobles, and places she had only ever heard about in stories and history; it wasn't long before she found herself an adult, and a skilled self taught "Sword-singer". And just when she was prepared to make the trek back home, a letter came to her. It held the most grave of news, and news that had stopped her heart. Her parents had passed away, and her father's work lost in a collapse of the ruin.


    The weeks and months that followed were aimless for her. Until she meditated on the teachings she had memorized and the pages her father had given her. Her key for success, her key for mastery, and her key to happiness, was to never return to where she once called home. Sacrificing everything she knew to search for a new place in life was all she had left. Sure, her brother was still away on his journey, but he had likely gotten the news too. And he likely had made the same decision as she. So for the last handful of years, she has traveled Tamriel. She now finds herself in the North once again, crossing through the borders once more. Skyrim may be her next stop, as there is plenty of ancient history left to be learned there.

    [​IMG]

    <:::::::::{|===[}~ Gear and Fighting Style ~{]===|}:::::::::>

    HEAD: He prefers to wear nothing, aside from his hood if the weather permits; however he does own a leather, ram horn helmet that he wore while serving for Ulfric Stormcloak and his rebellion. It looks something like THIS. His hood is woven, mixed animal furs and hides like the rest of his armor, and sewn into the armor itself.

    TORSO: He wears fur-hide armor, it doubles as comfort-wear, and battle-wear as well as serving him well as he travels and hunts in the wilds of his province. While wearing it, he has been mistaken as a true bear wearing the skins of it's prey - according to his comrades and friends. He also carries his leather and hide quiver, usually filled with his own self-crafted iron arrows. [Here's an idea of that]

    ARMS AND SHOULDERS: His shoulders are covered in the armor that surrounds his upper body and upper legs, while his arms are wrapped in a similar way, with the hides and furs of the animals he hunts. His hands are never covered, however. Despite the risk of hypothermia in some of the places he travels, he prefers not to sacrifice dexterity for warmth, or most anything for that matter.

    WAIST: His waist has nothing but a simple leather belt, with an attached sheathe for his sword. Sometimes he wraps his water-skin up to it as well, or the occasional satchel of coins.

    LEGS AND FEET: His feet and legs, like the rest of his form, is covered and wrapped in the furs and hides of his hunts. Underneath these furs, however, is a thin pair of black cloth leggings.

    EVERYDAY CARRY: The one and only object he carries with him outside of the occasional coin, stone pipe and water, is his Amulet of Kyne. He made this Amulet after concluding the trials that Kyne set before him to prove his worth and respect to her, the gods, and to Skyrim with all it's denizens. It is crafted from him putting together pieces of wood from all the 9 holds.

    WEAPONS: Thorr carries only 3 simple weapons with him; A Bow, a Sword and a Knife all he crafted from materials found throughout all the holds of Skyrim.

    His bow, Pine, he made as a Spruce-lined Birch bow; crafted with Birch from the Rift and Spruce of the Falkreath, with a string spun with the silk of frostbite spiders in Hjaalmarch. From it, he shoots simple random-metaled arrows which he crafts with whatever ingots he may collect on his travels [Here's an idea of what Pine could look like].

    His sword, Zeal, he forged within the ancient stone walls of Markarth. The Pommel and Hilt were smithed with an Iron ingot given to him by Ulfric Stormcloak during his service, "cast in Windhelp to be purer than all the other Iron in Skyrim, as pure as the Ice of Eastmarch"; the blade was crafted with a Skyforge Steel damascus from Whiterun, it's handle cut from a Northern Ceder in Haafingar, and it's sheathe made of Troll hide from the Pale [Here's an idea of what Zeal might look like].

    Last is his dagger, Shale. It's blade is crafted from ancient nordic metal, found in the glaciers north of Winterhold, while it's handle was cut and shaped from one of the frozen oaks in the Pale, and wrapped in the fur of on of it's norther mammoths [Here's a look at what that could be like].

    MAGIC: He uses none, has no use for any, but respect those that are able to harness and use it's power.

    FIGHTING ABILITIES: A formidable warrior and archer who once fought for the Stormcloak cause, Thorr is proficient in wielding his blade in close combat, as well as his bow. With his life spent as a hunter, his prowess with a bow at any distance is matched by few, and his ability to traverse any terrain without being seen or heard is like that of the formidable predators in the land that shaped him. Though his knife isn't necessarily meant for any offensive means, he is able to wield it as expertly as he is dissecting his prey.

    FIGHTING STYLE: He's a good fighter anywhere on the battlefield, and more than willing to be. Need somebody covering you from afar? He's got you. Need somebody behind you, watching your back while clashing steel? He's got you. Need somebody to get in and out without being seen? He's got you. Give him a place, he'll find it. Give him a role, he'll fill it. Give him a job, he'll get it done.

    <:::::::::{|===[}~ History ~{]===|}:::::::::>

    UPBRINGING: He unfortunately never got to meet his father, but his mother told him stories about how good and strong a man the Nord was. He was a soldier of the Empire, a veteran and hero of the Great War and a true son of Skyrim. When asked about his father, his mother would simply say, "he joined Sovngarde like the heroes in your story books, fighting those who look to oppress the true sons and daughters of Skyrim, young one." It was only until his mother was taken that he understood what really happened to his Father, as his mother shared the same fate. They were taken by the Thalmor on their rare visits to Whiterun. Examples of the consequences that disobeying the laws enforced by the White Gold Concordat led to. Worshiping their Warrior God, the god that guided his father through the death-filled battles for the empire, Talos, had been the condemnation of their souls from living.

    He was taken in by the priestesses of Kyne, in the shrine near where his home once was. They opted to change his name, eliminating the possibility of the Dominion's return for him; as they would likely look for the same namesake as their previous examples for ease of discovery and assumption of guilt. Kyne-Son he was affectionately called, and they taught about the traditional Nord gods and their affects and connection to mortal man.

    Along with their raising of the young boy, the Companions also had a roll in his upbringing, teaching him the ways of honor and protection, the greatest gifts any Nord can give to Skyrim and her people.
    Over time he grew into a smart, well mannered, devoted and honorable adolescent, slowly growing more and more independent with every day. It was only when the then young Aela, Farkas and Vilkas of the Companions invited the young boy to accompany them on a little adventure, that he found his purpose and respect for his home and province. It was nothing more than a simple hunt, to bring food home for the people of Whiterun and the warriors in Jorvaskrr, but it turned to be much more than that for him. Kyne spoke to him that day, with every arrow that flew. From then on, he devoted himself to her and his divines; hunting the wilds for it's bounty and protecting his home and all the life within it.

    HIS TRIALS: After some long years learning his craft, Thorriniir grew to be quite the young hunter, and at the age of 17 he was called upon by Kyne once again, this time a little more literally. She came an apparition on the wings of a hawk, interrupting the long tracked hunt of an elk. Without words, and only on instinct, he knew to follow the bird, who led him up the mountainside north of his home city. She brought him to the apparition of a rabbit, plump and ripe. Out of instinct alone, Thorr drew the string of his old longbow, skewering the animal on it's head. As his prey dropped, it's form disappeared leaving the lone arrow resting on the ground as if it was caught and set down. He looked to the hawk, who sat in a tree above, as it nodded and took off once more. It led him home where he briefly spoke to his matron, the elderly Priest of Kyne, who told him he was being given the ancient trials of the goddess; a great honor among all Skyrim's hunters and one he would take. He never looked back at his home leaving that day, and trusted the wind to guide him. He hunted true game, wandering his homeland from village to village, awaiting the sight of a sign from Kyne. She would come to him in the wind, or as a feather or in the call of a hawk - and when she did, he would diligently track the path she had left for him. From salmon to mudcrab, from finch to pheasant, Thorrin was given the spirits of game from the sizes of fox to Mammoth, in service and in challenge from the goddess. It was only on his final test, that he was tasked with facing more than just the spirit of a creature. A duo of Sabercats, one an apparition and one breathing and true. Without fear he faced the challenge of the hunt like he would any other. The boy of a mere 19 years, emerged his final challenge with a signature of his fallen foe upon his face and the winds of Kyne at his back. He had proven his worth in the eyes of the gods, and in return, a symbol of his victory; the experience of a hunter well beyond his years.

    HIS TATTOOS: At the conclusion of his trials, Thorr felt as if he was slowly disconnecting from his gods while focusing so primarily on the mother goddess. "Study, my friend, study with me. Follow me through the fall, winter and spring. Follow me until the next summer sun rises, and together we will have regained the truest of connections a Nord can reach with his gods." He met Odiir while walking the shore of lake Ilinalta, finding him sitting in the water. It's surface submerged the entirety of his body, all the way up to just under the nostrils of his nose while around him a school of slaughterfish swam. As calm as he, they surrounded in slow concentric circles as the man seemingly slept in the lake. He "woke up", and waded into the shore without taking a bite from the carnivorous fish with nothing but a friendly grin. After short introductions, Odiir quickly extended this invitation, and Thorriniir accepted. They traveled from mountain top to mountain top, from river to river, from cave to cave; a pilgrimage of study and devotion. He taught him how to feel the god's, and once he learned the skill, together they found the locations where they felt the strongest of pulls. Meditation would be all they did in these locations, sometimes for days on end, ceasing words and relying merely on thoughts and feelings. In one of their meditations, Thorriniir was surprised to feel sharp needle works on a part of his body while the images of an aetherial fox filled his mind. He left his dreamlike state, only to be guided to a sharp tool and ink, and the need to design curves and shapes upon his friends frozen body. Together, they'd awaken to find they had envisioned the same images, and felt the same feelings. Along with this, the thick and intricate patterns of what they had seen found a spot on their bodies. Twelve times this happened, one for each of the deities worshiped in their Nordic heritage - both ancient and modern.

    -- On their throats, where the power of their voices originated, they found the symbol for Ysmir, or Talos. The Dragon of the North, and once the Dragonborn; user of the Thu'um. They learned that his mark and it's location symbolized the power and passion that came from all Nords' voices; once they took down the plight of dragons and if unified once more, they could keep their lands sovereign and true.

    -- Curling along their necks to the back of them, lay the face of a Fox; the image of Shor. The Warrior god and creator of Sovngarde. They learned that his mark and it's location represented their origin and the gateways of their souls when departing to his realm after lifetimes of heroic service in battle.

    -- Opposite Shor's mark across their collarbones, was the face and foreboding wings of the World Eater Alduin. His symbol and it's location, they learned to represent the inevitability of all the world's end with a single flap with the powerful muscles in that location, and one's willingness to accept and live willingly in spite of it.

    -- Across the backs of their shoulders the wingspan of a hawk stretched out; the symbol for Kyne. The goddess of the wind, the mother of men and the widow of Shor. They learned that her symbol and it's location represents the openness of life and it's endless opportunity in which she has given all of man to fly.

    -- On their biceps were the symbols of Bear and Whale; representing the brother gods Tsun and Stuhn. The god of facing adversity and the god of the benefits of war, they learned the locations of Shor's shield-thanes and their symbols to represent the strength and willpower all Nords have to conquer and control all battles that lay ahead of them.

    -- On their shoulders are the symbols of Maloch and Herma-mora. The gods of War and Wisdom, they learned their symbols and their location represents the ability for one to choose the best of the paths that lay ahead of them, whether it be the power conflict or the power of harmony.

    -- Across their chests near their hearts are the stretched wings of a moth, the image of Dibella. The goddess of love and beauty, they learned her symbol and it's location represents man's ability to love openly and the beauty within every being.

    -- Across their stomachs below the navel, they found the heads of wolves; the symbol of Mara. The goddess handmaiden of Kyne, love and family, they learned her symbol and it's location to represent the origins of birth and family, and the source of loyalty and kinship.

    -- Wrapping around the calf and shin of their right legs are the wings and face of an owl; the symbol of Jhunal. The fallen god of order, they learned his symbol and it's location represents how weak the call of rules and following order is for all beings, and the difficulty that comes with deciding what is right and wrong.

    -- Wrapping around the calf and shin of their left legs are the tendrils and length of a snake; the symbol of Orkey. The enemy god of mortality and ruin, they learned that his symbol and it's location represents the constant and ever-existent call to evil and darkness one has over others and the choice one has to decide whether or not to follow the urge.

    What compelled these uncontrolled, trance like events which gifted them this symbols, they could only assume were the beings with which they drew. Odiir left Thorr's company when the summer returned, following the same call that had guided him and Thorriniir on their meditations. It had pulled at him to leave Skyrim, while it tethered Thorriniir to his home. They've not seen each-other since, but the warmth of his presence and guidance is something Thorr still feels to this day.

    MEADOW: Against his core values, Thorriniir respects all life and it's place in the plane of mundus; especially when it comes to wildlife, the flora and fauna he naturally surrounds himself in. He prefers to kill and hunt for what he needs, use what he can and sell for the good of others. With this, he defends nature and it's denizens against those who aim to kill without reason, and stands harshly against the violence some aim to pose against it.

    On a particularly windy and rainy afternoon, while tracking a small herd of elk in the western reaches of Falkreath hold, Thorr came across the sounds of what could only be described as slaughter. The sight he stumbled upon when following the noise, was the remnants of hunter camp, belonging to hunters he knew well. Hjork and Vorii, a couple from Karthwasten. When he was close enough to take aim, Thorr drew an arrow ready to fire at one of the two bandits who had lain waste to the camp, also killing Vorii. With a blade at Hjork's neck, Thorr's sight down the his arrow focused on him as he threatened and warned the Bandits to leave the man. Else they stood to face arrows in painful places that would only emasculate them. One took flight. Sprinting through the forest in the opposite direction of Thorr. The other stood strong, his blade tight against the man's throat. Thorr warned once more, but mid call the bandit moved. His blade tore through Hjork's flesh. The murderer began a step to run. An arrow shot violently, without mercy. The savage had planned ahead. His direction betrayed his step. Thorr's aim was tricked. The arrow flew, suddenly aimless. The bandit made away with a pouch of coin. Leaving Thorr alone, surrounded by carnage.

    Weary and torn with sorrow, Thorr did his best to pack up the couple's camp, and lay the two next to each-other in respect. His plan was to turn tail back to Falkreath as swift as he could, in search of a shovel to bury his friends in a way he knew they would see fit. Before he did, however, the whimpers and labored breathing of a creature filled his ears. He must have been blind to the noise in his grief, however his regret lasted only a second as he searched for the source. A Coyote, just at the beginning of it's adulthood; suffering at his hand. As he rushed to it's side, it whimpered it's last breathless plea and fell still. The young man's grief and regret doubled in that moment, breaking his stoic, respectful attitude into a bumbling mess of sadness. He laid next to the body of fallen animal and his murdered friends, ruminating on the thoughts of his regret. Had he arrived a moment sooner, he could have saved both of his friends, and spared the small canine's life. Had he been a better shot, he could have saved Hjork at least, rid the world of one worthless individual, and again, spared the small canine. The moment was suddenly too much for the young man, he had felt loss greater than this before but at a much younger age. Since then, he had never lost anyone he knew so unnaturally, or killed a creature so needlessly and so painfully. Even the violent seizing of his matron priestess that took her didn't fill him with near as much grief. It was like a lifetime of witnessing death had exploded within his mind.

    He laid quietly letting his sadness bleed from his eyes with tears, staring into the cloudy, rainy sky. In the midst of his swirling sadness, the sky cleared with a soft rush of warm wind which also ended the bustling air currents that came with the rain. His vision cleared for a moment, as the warmth filled him with a familiar feeling. He let his head turn to the body of the coyote. Standing just beyond the lifeless creature, was a large hawk, staring softly into his mourning eyes. There was no words, no sounds, and then the hawk slowly extended it's wings and took off from the ground with a powerful gust of wind. He watched it propel itself, dashing away through the canopy and into the sky. It's call echoed through the entire focus as it seemed to disappear from existence, and he watched the sky fill with clouds once more; returning the rain and wind around him. He closed his eyes, returning to his sadness but this time wondering why such a symbol from Kyne would have visited him in a time such as then. It was only when he felt gentle, warm breaths through a wet nose on his cheek, that his eyes shot open. He sat up as straight as a board and stared at the coyote who sat up with him, returning his gaze. It's head tilted to one side, before it laid itself down on it's fore-paws and continued to return his blank stare.

    "Life is fragile young one. You know it should not be taken needlessly. But to think all life is your responsibility is to lose your life. You have honored the gods and life in every step you have taken. We know you will do so until your final days. But we have seen your path, and there is something you forget time and time again without fail. This is one lesson you cannot be taught We cannot remind you at every time you forget more than once. So may she be a constant reminder of what life means. How fragile it is and how futile it is to deny its loss. How responsibility is different than respect and protection. So to look after her is your lifelong responsibility. To learn from her, is to know what it means to respect life. Because she knows what it's like to lose it. This is her second chance- her afterlife. She will not take it for granted while you walk together and learn from each-other. You are bound now. She will breathe with you in unison until your last breath. Which she will share with you as her own."


    The voice was profound in his head; booming and stern. It was clear, Kyne was clear, the gods were clear. He knew it was true, he knew he would never be able to tell the difference between him being responsible for all wildlife and him protecting and defending it, whenever a creature died. It would blur his outlook, like it had in that moment. Something so simple to comprehend, something so easy to understand. Something he could get when it was said, but that he couldn't feel sitting on the ground in the rain. But he could feel her, the canine, and through her, the instinct to protect wildlife without any feeling of being responsible for it. She was his guiding light in a fight he would lose with every death he was close to.

    He looked into her eyes, and felt every inhale and exhale of her lungs. Her eyes matched his, and he knew they both felt a mutual warmth. A warmth that brought him back to his first memories of hunting with Aela and the brothers. The warm summer air, orange flame colored rays catching the blades of wild grasses glowing gold in reflection. The gentle wind tickling the expanse of dancing brush carrying the gentle, beckoning scent of hay from the farmlands close by. The feeling of the plants almost exhaling as he ran his fingers through their strands, while walking across their roots. He let his hand reach out to her, and she stood. They never broke eye contact, and he felt the pull his hand created, beckoning her closer. Her head pressed into his open palm, and the feeling of her affectionate push sent a comforting chill through his body.

    "Meadow."

    Gear and Fighting Style
    ~----~


    HEAD: A simple Copper and Sapphire Circlet, and a Hood depending on the weather conditions

    TORSO: A set of College Styled robes, that she opted to weave and piece together herself. Arm wraps, an inner-tunic and leggings the color of stone are at the base of her set. Over the tunic is a loose fitting shroud the color of nighttime purple. Covering her shoulders is a black cloth, with hood attached. Draped over her shoulder is a long cloth, the same color of purple, wrapped together at the waist with black cloth and a dark leather belt. [Click here for an Example]

    ARMS AND SHOULDERS: Her shoulders and arms are covered by the standard style of the College's Apprentice robes, however her arms while traveling and adventuring are embraced with Ebony colored Elven style gauntlets.

    WAIST: Around her waist a standard leather, steel clasped belt holds her robes warmly to her slender body

    LEGS AND FEET: Underneath her robes she wears a pair of thick fur and cloth pants, which run underneath Ebony colored boots matching the Elven style of her guantlets.

    EVERY DAY CARRY: Inside the small bag she carries over he shoulder, you will often find a small alchemist pouch filled with the ingredients to make health and magic potions. Along with this pouch a filled water-skin can be found next to a small count of assorted potions. Likely the most noticeable masses are a few of whatever books she may be reading and/or studying at the time.

    WEAPONS: As a pure mage, and because she has no clue how to wield any weapon; she carries none, and intends to keep it that way. It's a waist of energy and time to carry them around with her when all the offensive and defensive capabilities that she needs reside within her mind and her connection with the plane of Aetherius.

    MAGIC: Lilium is fairly proud of the fact that she refuses to pick only one school of magic to practice, and prefers to use all of them. Her goal is to be as powerful at wielding magic like the master mages of old - who knew every spell for any situation. With this, she has a plethora of mastered spells at her disposal that she masterfully and strategically uses. The list is as follows:

    ~ Alteration: Candlelight, Magelight, Ironflesh, Detect Life, Detect Dead, Equilibrium

    ~ Conjuration: Soul Trap, Revenant, Conjure Flame Atronach, Conjure Ice Atronach, Conjure Storm Atronach

    ~ Destruction: Flames, Firebolt, Fireball, Ignite, Fire Cloak, Frostbite, Ice Spike, Freeze, Frost Cloak, Sparks, Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning, Lightning Cloak

    ~Illusion: Muffle, Frenzy, Rally, Pacify, Rout, Invisibility

    ~ Restoration: Greater Ward, Close Wounds, Heal Other, Heal Undead, Grand Healing, Stendar's Aura, Circle of Protection, Vampire's/Undead's Bane

    FIGHTING ABILITIES: While in battle, she is able to do numerous things, depending on the situation she finds herself in. Weather it means summoning support, healing comrades, raising the dead or striking fear in the hearts of her foes; she's a fierce competitor on the battlefield. However, she doesn't ever feel comfortable with going into a battle alone, and prefers to have friends or comrades at her side as she can only pull from her deep connection to Aetherius for so long. However, if need be, she has managed to master a spell that most mages refuse and almost never use - Equilibrium; in which she pulls from her own life energy to continue drawing from the Realm of Aetherius.

    FIGHTING STYLE: Heavy Support, Decent Defense, Formidable Offense, Major Influence

    ~----~
    History
    ~----~


    Lilium never knew her birth parents, but at some point in her young life her adopted father took her in. Lucius Lancif, a soldier in the Imperial Army. Nothing more than a lowly soldier, he was assigned to new areas of Tamriel, moving them fairly often. Never making much money, or staying in one place for any more than a year, Lilium and her father kept mostly to themselves outside of the barracks'. When her father was out on duty, Lilium often wandered the roads in whatever town they were in at the time; with some of the few possessions her father could afford for her - books.

    This is how their tiny family lived, bouncing from place to place, until she was almost 18 years old. Just before she turned 18, Liliums father retired himself from the Legion, and purchased a small home inside the Imperial City in Cyrodiil. He had joined the city's guard, and for the first time in all her years she had a definitive place to call home.

    On her 18th birthday, after months of searching for a way to join the Arcane College, Lucius surprised Lilium with an invitation into the school. An old friend of his, from 'back in the glory days' as he so eloquently put it, was a member of the College and managed to pull some strings.

    Though she wasn't a proper student, and merely a handmaiden, Lilium took every chance she could to snatch a book to read in her free-time only to put it back and grab another. She would often make excuses to clean during lectures, in order to learn from the Master mages about the realm of Aetherius and the art of magicka.

    She was able to do this without notice until she was 21, before she managed to make an enemy out of the Lore-keeper and Librarian of the college. Lilium was caught stealing a spell book, and had admitted to only borrowing it. The College did not feel the same, and excommunicated her in an instant, forcing her to leave and never enter the grounds again.

    Her day of excommunication was only the beginning of her bad luck, as on her return home, a courier met her with a note from the Captain of the city's guard. Her father was mortally wounded in action.

    She got to speak with him only in his last moments. A robbery in the Market District went awry, and he ended up getting stabbed in the chest; puncturing a lung. Lilium didn't bother to tell him about the trouble she had gotten herself into, rather, she focused on making the last moments of his life as happy as she could make them.

    His last words echoed in her mind as she packed up the few things she needed, and sold the rest of the belongings and her first home. And then she was in the wind, on her way to the north. To a college that would accept and teach her no matter who she was or where she came from.

    "Never stop reaching for your dreams, my Lily. You're the best and smartest person I have ever known, and you have always made me proud. I can't wait to see you become the best that you can be, that I know you can be. I am always with you, and I love you to the moons and back."

    College of Winterhold, Lilium Lancif, at your service.

    Kyneth Grohiikiin
    ~A Paradoxical and Enigmatic Madman~


    NAME: Kyneth Sithusaar Grohiikiin

    ALIAS: Wolf, Nomad


    AGE: 30


    BIRTH-DATE: 6th of Morning Star, 4E 171


    BIRTH PLACE: Somewhere deep in the Wrothgarian Mountains in High Rock


    GENDER: Male


    RACE/ORIGIN: Nord [75%] Bosmer [12.5%] Breton [12.5%]


    CLASS: Bounty Hunter | Witch Hunter | Mercenary | Weapon Master


    LATERALITY: Right Handed


    SEXUALITY: Straight/Hetero


    RELATIONSHIP/MARITAL STATUS: Single


    FAMILY: He once had a family, a mother, and father - siblings too. But he disowned and estranged himself over a decade ago

    PROPERTY: Not but what he carries on his person


    AFFILIATIONS: N/A


    AFFLICTIONS:

    - Mild Psychosis: A severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is lost with external reality. With this disorder, Kyneth faces hallucinations, both visual and auditory, delusions, agitation, paranoia, and incoherence in speech patterns.

    - Severe Manic Depressive Disorder: Otherwise known as Bipolar disorder, is a disorder associated with episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs. Kyneth's affliction by this illness is so severe, he feels manias and depressions many times a day. His manias are usually episodes of uncontrollable rage, and primal aggression, while his depressions are complete and introverted numbness. (more in depth information on his manic and depressive states will be provided in his personality section.)

    - Major Depressive Disorder: An extension of his MDD, sometimes his depressions will leave an underlying depression over him, that last for weeks or even months. When he is experiencing these, it is on top of his regular depression and manic mood swings.

    - Major Anxiety Disorder: This is not one disorder in itself, but rather a broad classification of his many anxiety disorders. General Anxiety Disorder brings severe and ongoing anxiety that truly affects him day to day. Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia, he frequently has spontaneous panic attacks and as a result, he fears recurring attacks and exposing himself to anything he believes could trigger these. Social Anxiety Disorder is where his hate for others comes from, as they bring him almost deadly anxiety at times, so he avoids them at all cost to avoid panic attacks or manias. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is experienced every now and then, as he tends to avoid the things that remind or bring back memories of past severe trauma. When he does go through experiencing this, it leads to intense panic attacks which eventually can lead to manias or depressions. His phobias also stem from all his anxiety afflictions, bringing overly intense and irrational fears of things many would not even consider scary.

    - Developing Dissociative Identity Disorder: This affliction is characterized as 2 or more different personality states within him. Though it is not fully at the stage of completely separate personalities, Kyneth is starting to feel himself shift when he goes in and out of his manic and depressive states. He has begun to feel a new weight and presence over him as his moods go from one end to the other. (More information on these shifts in the personality section.)

    PERSONALITY
    Well, let us start with the core of his being, before getting into the complications that come into play for his personality. Kyneth is, by definition, a walking paradox. He has very strong opinions on certain things but can also enjoy certain aspects of said things. For example, he has an innate and uncontrollable fear of water; including bodies of water and even swimming. However, he loves the rain, enjoys a cool bath, and his favorite thing to drink is the very thing he is terrified of. Things such as this can be seen in all things, from his values to his appearance, and probably most importantly and noticeably; his personality.

    Kyneth's most natural and powerful ability is that of speech, writing, and literature. He is very well spoken, and (at his most baseline and comfortable 'real' state) is very calming and easy to talk to. He loves to listen to others talk about themselves and learn their minds and souls, with this, he also enjoys helping others solve their problems by giving them the advice and tools to do so on their own accord. This, of course, is another example of his paradoxical existence. He loves to communicate and listen/talk to others however he fears and even loathes being near and around others, as well as distrusts and avoids them at all costs. The small exception to this rule is children. Kyneth, for a reason beyond comprehension, has the almost supernatural ability to build a rapport and trust with almost all of them. He will go out of his way, and against his phobias in order to help kids in need, in hopes that he may help to prevent them from experiencing the things that he had at that age. This gift with children is also seen between him and animals, as like the children, he is able to calm them and gain their trust for mutual gain.

    He constantly writes when he can, pouring out his soul onto the parchment he holds in front of him, and rather than keeping these notes, he leaves them behind. Perhaps this is because deep down, he hopes somebody may find it and be inspired or enjoy the sentences he formulates without having to think. This is an extension of his most unseen portion of his baseline personality, his intelligence, perception, and awareness. After centuries of experiences, teachings, and readings, Kyneth has been left with knowledge rivaled by few. This is something literally nobody knows about him, as well as what his wit allows him to do; read people. He does this with his expertise in kinesics like muscle reading and paralanguage, along with the discernment of microexpressions, proteans, and calypses. This is how he navigates through crowds, and controls the situation to his best ability. In his mind, if he knows everything about the people around him, he becomes and remains the smartest and most prepared person in the vicinity. He can use the information he gathers about people to not only monitor them but manipulate them as well. His intelligence also helps him when it comes to speech, navigating dungeons, and completing contracts with ease.

    This has covered the general aspects of his core and 'baseline' personality. Now to move into the more complicated things.

    Kyneth has faced countless traumas and mental scarring in his lifetime, things that have changed his mind and his soul permanently. One thing that must be understood about the following, is that the changes he faces are not within his own control. From a third person perspective, it seems like the opposite, however, that is not the case and is why I am including this portion of his mood an behavior in the personality section; so that it is a little bit easier to understand. Another thing that needs to be known, is that his different states of behavior and mood brought on by his Manic Depressive or Bipolar disorder, are not changes in his direct and baseline personality. Rather, it is a change in his actions, words, and thoughts. It can be heavily misread as a personality disorder due to the psychosis he tends to face as a result of the intense and constant changes, and the slowly budding dissociative identity disorder - which will eventually possibly make all of this an actual personality disorder based on mood shifts. What we will be covering now will be the 2 different moods and behavioral changes that he faces due to his ailments.

    We will start with his manias. When Kyneth experiences a mania or a manic episode, he shifts into being angry, primal, and raw. He is on the defensive, and is vindictive and cruel, going out of his way to strike at others who so much as look at him. The severity of his manias can mean a huge difference in the shift of his behaviors here. In the most severe of manias, Kyneth actually loses himself in rage, he 'becomes another person'. He is numb, frantic, cunning and focused, attacking and destroying everything around him until the energy of the mania drains and drags him away. As of late, his manias have started to be accompanied by a voice, and a breath in his ear. The voice is his own, but it is different, deeper and more sinister. He is starting to see something inside of him become a new state of being, and sometimes when his manias get incredibly severe, he can feel this being try to take hold. Along with these voices, Kyneth sees things either at the beginning or the end of this state. They are shadows, figures, and shapes, evil in appearance. The form in the corners of his eyes, and in the shadows around him, sometimes even in the eyes and faces of people. What triggers Kyneth into going into a mania is seemingly anything and everything. He sometimes doesn't even know he is going into a mania until it is too late, and doesn't even notice what had happened to put him there. Sometimes panic attacks can turn and drag him into this state, but most anything else can and has drug him there many times as well. These manias more often than not, lead him into depressions, but sometimes he can go back to baseline with ease.

    Next, we will cover his depressions. While it is fairly similar to his Major Depression disorder, it is not a part or direct extension of it. Rather, it is an addition to or on top of it. While he faces a constant depression of intense underlying sadness and sense of uselessness and suicidal tendencies from the major depression disorder, when he is in a depression those symptoms only become more magnified. These depressions can last for days while also bringing, like his manias, auditory and visual hallucinations, but also a numbness and solemness that hangs over him, and a constant nagging to end it all. Unlike his manias, Kyneth's hallucinations are much more severe and numerous. He hears voices almost constantly, however, they are not his own or right in his ear. They are whisperings from the area around him and shouting from far away, but they are inhuman and unnatural. His visual hallucinations are the same, numerous and intense in that he sees them everywhere, still as shadows, but not in only the corners of his eyes or in the shadows. They are misty, black silhouettes humanoid in shape. But within both of these visions and voices, there is one that stands out. The clear voice and visage of a girl. Her voice is sweet, soft and comforting; familiar to him as his first and only love, but not exactly the same. His visions of her are also similar in appearance to his passed love, young with dark ebony hair and dressed in a white flowing dress. However, when he looks at the girl's face, it is devoid of one; a blur where a face should be. When he hears her, it is usually in lullaby or comforting words; safe. When he sees her, all the other forms he sees fade away, slowly followed by her own disappearance. Then his depression ends, and he back to his normal baseline state.


    TEMPER: Short; It doesn’t take much to set Kyneth off, and most often of times, he doesn't even know what it is that triggers him


    OUTLOOK: Usually Pessimistic, with a slight amount of hope at times. To him life is short, hard, and pointless because all mortals die in the end. However, the small hope that there could be love and kindness for him from one other out in the world, keeps him going, and reminds him that it may all be worth it in the end.


    HONOR: High and Low; he is flexible in his honor, as he can and will only give honor to those who he thinks deserves it.


    ALIGNMENT: Chaotic Good; He does what he wants because he wants to, no matter how it effects those around him, however he has always wanted to help and better the lives of others who need and deserve it.


    POSITIVE TRAITS: Fiercely Intelligent, Loyal, Intuitive, Strong, Skilled, Passionate, Strategic, Leader-like, Protective, Master Communicator


    NEGATIVE TRAITS: Knowledgeable of his higher intellect and intuition - which is often mistaken as conceited arrogance, Ruthless, Fickle, Vindictive, Taunting, Intimidating, Fearless, Unstable, Can be irrationally angry, jealous and depressed

    DISLIKES: Ignorance, Shortsightedness, Bigotry, Presumptuous Personalities, Talking to people whom he doesn’t trust, Over-sensitivity, Racism, Sexism, Heat and Warmth, Magicka Users (he sees magicka as a cheap tactic to make weaklings and cowards strong), Illusionists/Illusion Users

    PHOBIAS: Hydrophobia (Water), Thalassophobia (Oceans/Large bodies of Water), Arachnophobia, Insectophobia, Trypophobia, Anthrophobia (People, Human Contact), Spectrophobia (Mirrors, His Reflection), Sciophobia (Shadows)

    GEAR AND FIGHTING STYLE


    Kyneth hand crafted, sewn and forged all his gear by his own hands, over his years of training and travels. Use the provided images above and linked below in order to get the best idea of what it all looks like on him, along with the descriptions.

    HEAD: A part of the rest of his clothing, he wears a dark gray hood over his head. To cover his face, and disguise himself from others he wraps a long deep, dark, blood-red scarf around his neck and over his mouth.


    TORSO: Wrapping his bare frame, is a loose dark gray tunic, that is almost robe-like in appearance with a long, draping and intricate bottom, and long loose sleeves. Over top this tunic, he wears his blackened, Kodiak bear leather chest piece. This piece of armor, while being flexible, light and as strong as the animal it was made from, also holds a few small pouches to carry miscellaneous items he may find the need for.


    ARMS AND SHOULDERS: Like his chest piece, over top of the loose sleeves, he wears a single matching leather pauldron on his right shoulder, as well as matching forearm-length bracers. All of the same leather his chest piece is made of.


    WAIST: Matching his other armor, and made of the same material, Kyneth wears a large leather belt with many assorted pouches for storage. It also has a horizontal quiver mount on it's back, a sword sheathe, a dagger sheathe, and 4 throwing knife sheathes.


    LEGS: Matching his tunic, he wears loose, dark gray cloth pants. They also carry assorted tails and trails.


    FEET: Tall, intricate leather boots, matching the set already covering his body in materials and design.


    EVERY DAY CARRY: Aside from his weapons and armor, Kyneth carries very few things with him at all times. He almost always carries parchment, a quill, and ink, in order to write and draw whenever he feels the need. A mortar, pestle, jars and vials for on the go alchemy are also usually always on his person as well. Due to his prowess in Alchemy, he never carries potions, but rather only healing reagents with which he applies as needed. Outside of these few objects, he only has a water-skin, and a sharpening stone, their uses pretty self-explanatory.


    WEAPONS: Kyneth carries a rather vast arsenal of weapons, all for different purposes and situations. Over his years, he has learned some weapons just can't do everything he needs it to, so has spread his proficiencies in those that he carries. His main weapons are his handmade Bow, Sword, and Axe. His bow, Fein (pronounced like fayen) [PHOTO HERE], is a simple hardened Wrothgarian pinewood bow with intricate patterns carved into the wood, strung with pure, black, woven Nordic appaloosa horse hair. His sword, Helios [PHOTO HERE], is a 26 inch Damascus Steel and Ebony crafted Falcata sword, with a Bloodstone/Heliotrope inlaid handle (this isn't in the photo provided, as the handle in that sword is some kind of Jade or Ivory, but here is a photo of heliotrope stone [PHOTO HERE]). His ax, Prehn [PHOTO HERE], is a handaxe with a 20-inch handle and a 5-inch blade that extends around 7 inches from the handle. Both the handle and the blade are made of the same metal as Helios but were forged separate and attached and forged together at the end of the process. Using his knowledge of the dragon language and spelling, he inlaid the symbols for Faas or Fear, along with other runic designs. He wrapped the handle in thick stained horse hide, and the bottom of the pommel is inlaid with a Prehnite stone orb (this is not shown in the reference artwork, but here is a photo of Prehnite stone [PHOTO HERE]). His secondary weapons are his dagger, greatsword. His dagger called Ursine, forged with the same Damascus as the rest of his arsenal. It's a 12-inch blade, with an aged antler handle, and pure steel pommel and hilt [PHOTO HERE]. His greatsword, which is unnamed, is a standard steel longsword, not forged by himself like the rest of his weaponry. The reason for this is due to him carrying the only heirloom of his father's name; a shattered executioners sword called Liz Dinok, or Ice Death in dragon's tongue, that he plans to one day reforge when he understands the metallurgy used to create it. He estimates the blade's length, when reforged, being roughly 35 inches, and along with the handle, hilt, and pommel, it may become a hearty 42 inches. Unlike traditional executioners swords, it's blade is sharp all the way down to a point, whereas regularly they have no point. It seems to be made from 3 different types of steels unknown to him, all imbued with a radiating cold energy [PHOTO HERE]. Along with all this, he carries a quiver (made from the same materials as, and matching his armor) filled with dwarven arrows, and on his belt are 4 steel throwing knives.


    MAGICKA: Though Kyneth has a particularly heavy distaste for Magicka users and mages, his intense fascination with the ice and cold actually stems from a natural affinity for ice magicka. This can be attributed to his lineage and Breton blood, as his ancestors and forefathers from his Breton side were once powerful Cyromancers. Though he has never purposefully or consciously used ice magicka, every now and then there are moments when he feels himself harness the cold without thinking.


    FIGHTING ABILITIES: A well trained and natural fighter, Kyneth was masterfully trained in the art of archery, hand ax combat and swordsmanship, as well as hand to hand combat, and reconnaissance combat. He does not have a preference for his bow, axe or sword, as he enjoys getting to use, practice, and expand his experience with these weapons. If he finds himself in a recon position where he is not picking off foes from afar, however, he does not resort to using Helios or Prehn, but rather Ursine or his bare hands for a quick dispatch of his target. His throwing knives also fall into this category of necessity, and he can use them as expertly as his dagger to silently take out up to 4 foes at once with perfect aim. Though fast, nimble, powerful and strong, Kyneth has problems with getting overwhelmed and surrounded. If he loses his head (this happens often), he loses all his sense of calculation and control and becomes a mindless attacker.


    FIGHTING STYLE: Kyneth is a strategist at heart. When of clear head and mind, when he is in full control of his thoughts, feelings, and actions, he is a fighter of necessity first and foremost. As his many trainers in the past have taught him, mastery in ranged and close combat is an important tool for anyone combating skilled opponents. If he finds he may be outnumbered before being detected, he will come in silent, and invisible, picking off his foes with arrows unseen, until he gets close enough to plan a route to take out the rest with an eager Ursine. If he is overwhelmed and outnumbered while noticed and targetted by numerous foes, he resorts to his greatsword, to bring powerful, arching swings to take out as many enemies at possible, quickly and powerfully. If he finds himself equally matched, more often than not, he will go in without any regard for being unseen, or unknown, as a dual fair and true is also something he is quite good at. The single handed blade he uses depends on his opponent. Helios, he uses mainly for human and mortal foes, while Prehn he uses for that of the supernatural and undead.

    HISTORY

    LINEAGE: His mother's family, holds roots in Bosmeri tribal culture. As his great grandmother on his mother's side was the Shaman of a Bosmeri tribe long ago. And throughout the ages, their beliefs and ideals were taught and passed down. Due to the fact that he never knew his parents, Kyneth never got to learn about these things. However through much meditation and practice, he has been able to come in contact with what he believes to be the spirits of his great grandmother and other members of his family before her.


    His father's family, holds roots in Breton ancestry. Like on his mother's side, his great grandmother on his father's side was a powerful Breton cult leader, and a legendary cyromancer. And though the cult following has since been long forgotten, the practice of cyromancy was viewed as almost sacred in that side of his family. As stated before, he never knew anything about this, and through meditation, again, he gained contact with that great grandmother and other members of his family before her.

    As a daily part of his life, he meditates and meets in commune with different members of his long passed family, learning the traditions and beliefs that his family had, and implementing certain parts of both into his life as he sees fit. However, he has never sought out his parent's, either in spirit or in the real world, for they abandoned him shortly after his birth, and he holds a hatred in his heart for the both of them because of this.

    After a rough upbringing, Kyneth traveled Tamriel. Staying with different masters of many different crafts, like blacksmiths and warriors. He was taken as an apprentice by an ex Lion Guard Captain, when he was merely 13, and taught to wield a sword. After 4 years with this master, he was relieved from him, and soon after he became the apprentice of a master Orsimer blacksmith somewhere deep in the Wrothgarian Mountains, a place he has always had a deep spiritual connection with. This became the beginning of his love for crystals, gems and stones, as well spiritualism, and his master taught him to harness all these things and use them to his crafting advantage. When he turned 20, he matched and decided to leave his master's training for other endeavors. This is when he met an old hunter, and wild-man. Though he was not taken as a formal apprentice, Kyneth followed this man for nearly 7 years, mastering the arts of hunting, tracking, gathering, and navigating wildlife like Kynareth herself. However, throughout all of this, Kyneth had kept secrets. Kept to himself. Closed himself off. Never did he make friends, or attempt to socialize. Never did he confront his fears. And while he mastered the physical world, and his physical self, his psyche and his mind have been neglected since the very beginning. Now, he searches for a new master, someone to help him control and make sense of the hurricane that is his brain, as well as the woman who has haunted his dreams for as long as he can remember.

    Gear and Fighting Style
    <---{{ ~8~ }}--->

    HEAD: While in cities in towns, nothing, but while out in the wilderness or hunting she wears the hood of her fur cloak

    TORSO: She has a thin, forest green, sleeveless tunic that she wears underneath her leather cuirass which is also sleeveless

    ARMS AND SHOULDERS: The only thing that covers her shoulders is her fur cloak, her forearms are wrapped with thin leather bracers matching her cuirass, and on her right hand (her drawstring hand) she wears a green cloth glove

    WAIST: Her waist is wrapped in a simple hide belt, with two sheathes on her right hip

    LEGS AND FEET: Her legs are covered by tight fitting brown cloth, on her feet and lower calves she wears leather iron-shinned boots

    EVERYDAY CARRY: A leather quiver on her back, which she keeps stocked with 30 steel arrows, and a few other random type arrows ranging in strength and distance abilities. Attached to the side of the quiver is a small satchel, which she keeps a large length of rope - which she uses to tie together pelts to carry easier and room for a few simple potions.

    WEAPONS: Her weapons all hold a significant value to her, as she crafted them herself and hopes to only continue upgrading them or replacing them with better self-crafted gear (outside of her arrows). However, none more than her bow, a tough northern-wood recurve bow. It's length has complicated hand-carved designs inlayed with skyforge steel ingots, it's string is a unique combination of horse hair and woven spider-strings. [LINK] Her sword was crafted with her attempt of damascus skyforge steel and dwarven metal, in the the style of a xiphos sword; it's hilt and pommel is a more intricately shaped and designed form of the same metal with the handle wrapped in green-stained horse hide. [LINK] The last weapon in her arsenal is her dagger, which is crafted from simple skyforge steel but almost all intricately inlayed and carved; it's handle is wrapped in the same horse hide as her sword, and it's pommel has her attempt at a dragon's head. [LINK]

    MAGIC: She's never used it, been able to use it, or had the inclination to try and use it. She does, however, respect the craft unlike most Nords, and enjoys watching complex spell casting when she sees it.

    FIGHTING ABILITIES: Her most practiced and skilled weapon is her bow. Learning from Aela the Huntress how to shoot with power and accuracy, along with countless hours of hunting and trapping, she is quite the marksman. She was briefly trained with her sword by Aela as well, and she practiced by watching other's practice their own swordsmanship. She has never been trained in dagger-wielding, and hasn't really needed to. She only ever uses it for dispatching, skinning and gutting her prey; however she probably could use it in a fight if she had not other option. How hard could it be?

    FIGHTING STYLE: In the few battles she's had while fulfilling bounties and encountering Bandit Camps, she is surprisingly good at shooting in close combat. She also cleverly uses her bow to parry and hit her opponents if they decide to get too close. Whenever she finds herself out of her league with shooting at close range, she will pull her sword and use it wildly and maniacally. She isn't super accurate or controlled wit the blade, but she's hacking and slashing madly most of the time; and against the opponents she finds, that's all that is needed to be effective.

    OUTLOOK: Grim; He's seen a lot in his time, it only takes so long before somebody becomes desensitized to the inevitable darkness of the world

    HONOR: None; He had honor at some point in his life, but the amount of people he's met without any has tainted his soul and permeated into his heart

    ALIGNMENT: Chaotic Neutral

    POSITIVE TRAITS: Intelligent, Experienced, Strategic, Masterful, Efficient, Effective, Thorough, Vigilant, Observatory, Unattached, Fearless, Critical, Alpha-personality, Fierce

    NEGATIVE TRAITS: Head Strong, Apathetic, Unsociable, Hyper-vigilant, Short Tempered, Aristocratic, Vain, Unforgiving, Ruthless

    LIKES: Rain-forests and Forests in general, Rain, Thunderstorms, Animals, Nature, Pine-trees, Scent of Pine, Hunting, Tracking, Thinking, Exploring, Stalking, Climbing, Free-running, Being Alone (aside from Kormuvan)

    DISLIKES: Attention, Large Cities, Unnatural Noise, Ignorance, Bigots, Racism, Admeri Dominion and their Agents (Including the Thalmor and in his eyes the Empire), Legionaries and Soldiers, Authority, People trying to control him

    FEARS/PHOBIAS: Losing Kormuvan is the only fear he can feel anymore

    HABITS/QUIRKS: He tends to dissociate and lose himself in thought and his surroundings, Talking to Kor and thus; himself

    ASPIRATIONS/GOALS: To kill all those who deserve to die until his last breath

    BEAST FORM: Despite his short temper, his control of his beast blood is surprisingly great. While the ferocity of the beast tends to bleed into his regular personality once his anger is triggered, it takes much more pushing for him to lose his grip as himself. When he does lose control of his human form, as a beast he is in enough control to choose the direction of which his power is aimed. This is enough to avoid needless slaughter and death, and attempt to either make it useful, or make it useless and point it toward nothing.

    -~ Gear and Fighting Style ~-

    (note: all his gear has been self crafted and upgraded over time)
    HEAD: While traveling alone, and with nobody around, he only keeps the hood sewn into his armor on his head; shrouding his face in natural shadows. When in the public eye, or while hunting and stalking his targets he adorns a leather mask along with his hood, that way even if his hood manages to come off he is still anonymous; it also adds a level of intimidation and fear to the mix as only the faint glow of his haunting and hunting eyes show through. [Here's the Mask]

    TORSO: On his torso covering his chest and belly is a leather chest piece, with fur lining in some spots [Here's an idea of what that looks like]. Strapped around his back, is his quiver with attached blade sheathes, the quiver can hold up to 30 arrows and the sheathes are custom fit to his specific daggers [Here's the look of the quiver] [and here's the look of the attached sheathes].

    ARMS AND SHOULDERS: His shoulders are covered in the attached leather pauldrons on his armor, matching it's design. His forearms are guarded and adorned with leather bracers of similar design [here's what those could look like].

    WAIST: Wrapping around his waist, pulling his armor tight to his stomach and making it seamless into protecting his upper legs, is a leather utility belt. It holds room for a small count of throwing knives, some sharpening materials, potions and poison vials, septims and other items while also having 2 sheathes for his different swords on each side [here's an idea of that].

    LEGS AND FEET: While his legs are covered in black trousers, over the upper portions of each limb the skirt portion of his armor cover his thighs while a pair of leather boots protect his shins and feet [here's those].

    EVERYDAY CARRY: He doesn't carry much on him aside from his major weapons, but the items include up to 6 throwing knives, 4 vials of miscelanious poisons, 2 potions of resistances, anywhere from 200 to 500 gold pieces, a sharpening set, strong leather twine, and dried meat/animal hide for Kor.

    WEAPONS: He has a pretty full arsenal of weaponry, and has no preference as to which he uses in any given situation as at this point in his life he has virtually mastered all of them. His bow, which he affectionately calls 'Claw", is a classic medium sized bow made of the strong, flexible and now rare Summerset Rosewood, and Elsweyrian Osage wood with a complex horse hair weaved bowstring. It has decorative claws or teeth attached to it's front with leather from the same beast, that Lytahlas replaces semi-often [Here's a look at that]. He carries two separate swords on his person, a short-blade and long sword. The shortsword, is that of royal Breton descent, made with Wrothgarian steel and symbols of ancient royalty. He has masterfully restored the blade, replacing the once decayed handle with smooth cherry wood [here's an idea of that]. His other sword is self created, and one of the first blades he ever forged; it's blade is made from an elven steel without imperfection curved into a long, lithe blade. It's handle is curved mahogany, matching the flow of the blade; it's dimensions makes the long sword as light as any dagger and as deadly as any executioner's sword [here's a look of what that could be]. His last two weapons, are his most prized; his daggers. They are not of the same design, but of the same descent. They were made from a damascus steel he and his father crafted together at a young age, and were formed at the same time. His father's blade a straight blade, styled similar to that of a classic sword, while his own blade is sharpened on one side, curving like his elven sword. His father's handle is the very wood his home was built with, cedar, while his own was made with ebony [here's his father's][and his own].

    MAGIC: None. Rather indifferent on it as well, it's just never served him any purpose, and he's found no need for it in all his years.

    FIGHTING ABILITIES: He's a veritable master of all his weapons, and thus, is capable of using them all to their fullest potential. He's also quite the capable free runner, and easily traverses most types of terrain; whether it be through the canopy of trees, rock faces and cliffs, or city walls and buildings.

    FIGHTING STYLE: He prefers to get things done quickly in most scenarios, and because of this he tends to stay a distance away from his targets, planting arrows in lethal points. If the situation doesn't fit that option, he will quickly switch to whichever sword he deems necessary, or even both. His short blade is usually better against smaller, more nimble opponents while the longer blade is more useful for larger, slower foes. His daggers are usually used for close combat situations and quick assassinations and kills. in the rare cases where he tortures or dissects his victims by customer order or whilst hunting, he'll use them accurately and painfully if need be.

    BEAST FORM: As a wolf, he is pretty unable to choose the target of his attacks and his power. He is, however, in control of his strikes and attacks. Once somebody or something is in his line of "fire" he properly dispatches them in whatever way he deems fit at the time. Whether that means a mauling, or a good mouthful of flesh, varies from person to person.

    Companion

    -~ Basic ~-

    NAME: Kormuvan "Kor" Auvraeplith

    AGE: 214

    RACE/SPECIES/ORIGIN: Lupislycan - A wolf given lycanthropy (no beast form)

    GENDER: Male

    RELATIONSHIP/FAMILY: Kor's master and agreed Father, is Lytahlas. As Mer/Man are not wolves, the usual canine hierarchy doesn't apply to their relationship, and thus their friendship is based wholey on love, trust and innate and instinctual understanding. This understanding comes from Lytahlas being the giver of Kor's Lycanthropy, and their understanding is as close to telepathic as it can get. While Lytahlas is in his Beast Form, that hierarchy appears, and Kor becomes the Beta to Lytahlas' alpha and pack, and performs as such.

    AFFLICTIONS: Lycanthropy - adds to his lifespan, enhances his intelligence, strength, speed and senses

    EYE COLOR: Blazing Red

    BODY/BUILD/SIZE: Standing at a tall 4' at the shoulder, and measuring from nose to tail 6'4", this 200 pound monster of a wolf puts most other wolves to shame. Despite his size, his muscles are lean, accurate and powerful. His Body is just as battle-worn and scarred as his master's and this adds a decent amount of intimidation to his form.
