    He actually pronounces it Illy, kind of twists her name a little bit, partly to annoy her xP

    @Zelda
    Yeah this scene is likely one of the most emotionally powerful I've taken part in, and I love it as well! I can't wait to see where our charries go from here!!

    Ah, okay! I was thinking it would sound more along the lines of "isle", but that's interesting too.

    And I may or may not be giggling to myself with this post. Comedic relief, anyone?

    My evil politician is done finally! (Well, kind of) Still have to come up with a decent backstory for him. I have a few key points already decided, but am still trying to come up with more details. I'm still really happy with how he's turned out thus far, and I'm eager to see how much pl*ps he can stir up w/ our heroes (before he inevitably gets his ass handed to him of course) :rolleyes:

    The Malicious Inquisitor
    Azrael

    Azrael.jpg

    General
    • Name: Azrael Volaire
    • Alias: The Inquisitor, The 2nd Emissary
    • Race: Altmer/High Elf [100%]
    • Gender: Male
    • Age: 221 (Around late 20s / Early 30s in human years)
    • Birthdate: 13th of Frostfall, 3E 413
    • Birthsign: The Serpent
    • Birthplace: Dusk, Summerset Isles
    • Class/Occupation: Thalmor Ambassador/Politician, Justiciar
    • Affiliations: Aldmeri Dominion, Inquisitor of The New Order (secretive sect within the Thalmor)
    • Religion/Patron Deity: Claims to worship Auri-El
    • Laterality: Right-Handed
    • Sexuality: Heterosexual
    • Relationship Status: Single (Widower)
    • Family: Azrael's parents are blood-related siblings (this is unknown to even Azrael), and were significant nobles in the previous Altmer government. Both were exiled however after the Aldmeri Dominion seized control of the Summerset Isles. Azrael's wife Naminyl is currently deceased.
    Appearance

    azrael5.jpg

    • Height: 6'4"
    • Eyes: Golden
    • Skin: Greenish-Yellow
    • Hair: Platinum Blonde (almost white), Hair flows to his shoulders
    • Build: Lean, a bit more muscle than the average Altmer but not by much
    • Scars: Minor scrapes from a few skirmishes during his time as a Justiciar. After taking office, he has had little to no scars obtained since.
    • Tattoos/Piercings: n/a
    Gear

    Azrael4.jpg

    • Armor: In battle, Azrael dons his Inquisitor's Armor, a dark, elven-plated chest piece adorned with gold accents. It is worn over the standard Thalmor Justiciar robes. He typically wears a black long coat over this with armored shoulder/armguards. The coat has golden, elvish designs etched throughout. Pants and boots are the same as the standard Thalmor set.
    • Casual Clothing: Azrael removes the armor and long coat, thus only leaving the standard Thalmor robes. In bad weather conditions he will occasionally put his hood up (like the High Elf loading screen).
    • Formal Clothing: For meetings with other politicians and social gatherings, Azrael will default to an ornate, Summerset Isles-inspired robe. It is black on the outside and yellow within, with gold trimmings on the ends. It is accompanied with a yellow sash and fine leather boots.
    AzraelFormal.jpg

    • Weapons: Although Azrael will more often resort to magic as opposed to melee-based offense when confronted, he has been known to be a fairly skilled duelist. If the need arises, he wields a ceremonial Altmer blade into combat. Forged with elven steel, the pristine blade has an almost round-ish tip, meant for slicing as opposed to stabbing. The hilt is decorated with two golden lion heads and the Aldmeri Dominion emblem on the centerpiece. Since he is not traditionally a warrior, his swings are not very impactful, as such, he typically uses telekinesis to manipulate his sword in the heat of battle instead of swinging it himself.
    AzrielSwordFull.png AzraelSwordHilt.png
    • Accessories: At all times Azrael sports his signature pendant, the Purest Blood Amulet. It is a necklace made of ebony with a reddish glow within, and is intended to resemble a drop of blood. It is an artifact obtained by Azrael while he served only as a Justiciar, before he rose up the ranks. It belonged to a young, adolescent vampire girl in Valenwood, whom he killed along with her non-infected family who were trying to seek out a cure for her. The infamous incident became known as "Bloody Sundas". Though the amulet helped the girl stave off her bloodlust, it gives Azrael manipulative access to his blood and the blood of others, also known as the dark, forgotten art of hemomancy.
    Azrael Amulet.jpg

    • Magic: Very few rival Azrael in terms of raw magical skill. His most powerful art is one he uses in secret. Hemomancy, or blood magic, is used by Azrael on only the strongest of foes. He manipulates the opponent's blood and even his own with terrifying ease to kill or seriously maim. The magics Azrael DOES use in public include Destruction (Shock-based spells), Alteration (Flesh spells, Paralysis, Telekinesis), and Illusion (Compliance and Rage-inducing spells). The two schools he isn't as talented with are Conjuration and Restoration.
    • Skills: Despite being an incredibly talented mage, Azrael shines brightest behind the scenes. Countless royal families and established governments within the Empire have lost power and even fallen thanks to Azrael's meddling in their politics. The charismatic Altmer sometimes gets favored over Elenwen to consult with negotiations and treaties due to his charm and ability to coerce. He is incredibly indirect when dealing with pressing matters the require a physical presence, and will typically rely on underlings and lower ranked members of his New Order to represent him or deal with a troublesome individual. His ability to shift the blame and cover his tracks has allowed him to go undetected in his political conquest.
    • Fighting Style: As stated, Azrael will most likely have others fight his battles for him, but on the rare occasion he takes up arms himself, he makes his opponent regret dragging him into the fight. Magic is his go to, and he will likely approach combat by shooting a volley of lightning or using Illusion spells to mentally throw off his enemy. If he feels the need, he can also use his blade in more personal combat, which he can manipulate using his telekinesis. Only the strongest of foes have seen him use his hemomancy abilities, none of which are alive to tell the tale.
    • Weaknesses: Though he wields a blade, a half-decent swordsman could easily overpower him if Azrael is not using magic. Since he is not a warrior, Azrael has VERY little stamina, and can get winded the longer a fight goes on. It is at this point he must begin using his hemomancy, which although makes him significantly stronger, it also makes him a glass cannon. One major interruption of a blood mage spell can yield disastrous results for the magic user. Without his amulet, Azrael cannot even access his blood-based abilities.
    Personality
    • Personality: Azrael is a snake-tongued Altmer, able to coerce and manipulate others into giving into his best interests. He is cold and calculating, and rarely ever makes mistakes. He has become a master at "the Game" and is considered by most to be the best diplomat in the Aldmeri Dominion (he is outranked only by Elenwen due to her previous service as an interrogator). As such , he is VERY sociable, more so than the average Altmer. He is also more flamboyant, as he mixes up his choice of attire depending on the situation, where as the other members of the Thalmor strictly wear the robes for both work and leisure. Because of his psychopathic tendencies, he makes little to no friends, as he simply views others as a means to an end, including all of the members and agents in his New Order. What he truly lives for these days is the lust for power, and very little else.
    • Morality: Lawful Evil
    • Positive Traits: Charismatic, Persuasive, Photographic Memory, Highly Intelligent
    • Negative Traits: Manipulative, Under-Handed, Narcissistic, Power Hungry, God Complex
    • Likes: High Elves, Summerset Isles (Alinor), Politics, Verbal Jousting, Intelligent People, Order, Red Wine
    • Dislikes: Nords (and to a lesser extent the other human races), Death, Illness/Weakness, Dimwitted/Uncivilized People, Ale and Mead
    • Afflictions/Fears: Dying before he carries out what he believes to be his "destiny", Falling out of political relevance
    • Habits: Tapping his index finger on a flat surface when he isn't amused, Sliding himself into conversations/discussions that do not even involve him, Not directly looking at someone whilst talking to them if he lacks respect for said person.
    • Voice: Albert Wesker - Resident Evil
    • Goals: Azrael truly believes mankind isn't fit to govern itself. At the same time, he longs to be in a seat of major power. So he aims to crumble the Empire from within by either using diplomacy (done by himself) or forcefully removing key leaders/individuals (done by his 'New Order' faction, at Azrael's behest)

    History
    [UNDER CONSTRUCTION]

    [ THIS CHARACTER IS CONSIDERED A VILLAIN TO THE DRAGONBORN. YOUR CHARACTERS MAY INTERACT WITH HIM: EITHER TO SUPPORT HIM, BEFRIEND HIM, OR DESTROY HIM. THIS IS A TOUGHER BOSS, SO IF YOU DO DECIDE TO FIGHT HIM, IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME, AS HE IS A WELL-DEVELOPED CHARACTER, AND I WOULD MOST APPRECIATE IF MULTIPLE INTERACTIONS OCCUR WITH THIS ENEMY (OR FRIEND, IF YOU SO CHOOSE).]

    @Snoball Wow! I am blown away by your villain! :O Truly a worthy adversary to the lovely Princess Celica! While Celica cares for the unity of the empire, she surely despises the power hungry Thalmor for their thirst of control. Their interactions together will definitely be memorable (especially the battle between them, when that arises.) Very well done! I will definitely make sure this villain causes a lot of problems before his demise ;) I would also say I would like to start the Dragonborn's first quest with you. Whenever the others become active, they can easily join in quickly. They will just have less interactions at the beginning with him. If you would like, I can either throw the dragonborn in the inn or would you rather him walk in while your character is present first?

    Sorry for the late-ish response, work's been pretty hectic haha. And for the Dragonborn quest, I'm probably gonna have Gor already sleeping/waking up in the inn, so he'll be spawned in right from the start. Which inn do you think we should meet up in?

    Hey all. Just wanted to shoot y'all an update. My life has almost literally been ripped out from under me this past week. I'm in a hospital, and probably will be for a while. I'm not planning on leaving, however, just know and keep in mind that it might take me a little longer to post and the like.

    I love you guys and all the wonderful writing the lot of you create! May Kynareth bless your days friends.

    Sorry, all! I have been busy preparing for college and it has been quite hectic, so I do apologize.

    @Kivuli_The_Khajit That's okay! It happens to the best of us.

    @Snoball The closest inn to Shor's Stone is The Bee and Barb in Riften. Gossip spreads quickly through any large hold, so it would make sense for the innkeeper to hear of such a tale. With it being a big city, the Dragonborn would have a reason to be there at the beginning of his quest, and hear of his new one. Does that sound alright?

    @Specter of Death Oh dear I hope you are okay! We love you too, and we hope you get well soon! Take your time, heal yourself, and relax.

    I'm so sorry you guys. I have to go on a hiatus. I'd explain why, but it is very deeply personal. I'm very sorry. I hope to return as soon as possible.

    Haven't got a chance to RP w/ you yet but I hope all goes well with you, man. Rooting for you! @Specter of Death

    No need to rush, I think everyone has been a bit preoccupied at the moment haha. I'm ready to start whenever, not sure if you put up a CC for the Dragonborn yet, so I'll wait on it before my initial post @Zelda

    Well. I have a feeling this RP is down for a while. Back to school for some, and some members haven't gotten online for a while yet. I know it hasn't been that long, but. I really liked this RP. I'll keep checking in every so often.

    I'm sorry for my absence, everyone. However I can now safely say I will be back soon. A lot has changed for me in the last two weeks, both good and bad. However I am finally finding myself able to start writing here again. It seems pretty dead around here right now; what with school returning among other things, however I hope to get some more activity here if we get the ball rolling again. Here soon you guys will start getting some notifications here from at least me - perhaps that might make it more inviting again! I love you all my friends, it may seem weird to say or hear that from a stranger but I don't have many people in my life outside of those I write and connect with here. I hope all is well for you guys at summer's end. Be well!

    Hello everyone. I would like to apologize for my elongated, spontaneous absence.

    I started college: a huge life milestone for me. I needed to adjust to the lifestyle, as well as my family.

    My great grandmother was also in the hospital, so I visited her often, and I am sad to say I lost her and heard news of it my first day of classes. So a day that was already stressful and important, I lost someone I care so deeply about that I was so close to. I became very depressed, and needed to focus on college as well. So these past few weeks have been quite tough, and I couldn't find myself able to appear on this site.

    I must admit I am better now, at least, I believe I am better, and I should be more active from now on. I have a class starting in a few minutes, but this evening or tomorrow I will catch up with everything.

    I hope you all are doing wonderful, and I hope you all can forgive me. <3
