    Warlock
    Race: Dark Elf
    Alignment: Evil/Chaotic
    Factions: Volkihar, College of Winterhold
    Major Skills: Destruction, Conjuration, Illusion
    Minor Skills: Alteration, Sneak, Enchanting
    Playstyle: As a Warlock you serve to cause chaos, when entering a dungeon you always Sneak,
    once you have found your enemies it depends on the situation on what you do next. If there is only 1 enemy, you set fire to him with your blaze of fury. If there are multiple enemies, you quickly send some Frenzy spells, then you cast your reanimation spells to raise servants, after all of that is finished, you burn your last enemy.

    Nightblade:​
    Race: Dunmer
    Alignment: Lawful Evil (Organized Psychopath)
    Factions: Dark Brotherhood/Nightingales
    Primary Skills: Sneak, 1H, Illusion
    Secondary Skills: Archery, Light Armor, Alchemy (Poison Specialization.)
    Perks: Skyrim Perk Calculator - Plan the perks for your Skyrim character before spending them!
    Spells: Invisibility, Fury/Frenzy, Calm, Muffle.
    Standing Stone: The Thief (Guardian Stone) or any of the associated Stones (Serpent, Tower, or Lover)
    Equipment: Shrouded, or Nightengale Armor, Armor of the Old Gods, Master Robes of Illusion, Linwe's Hood, or Krosis. Blade of Woe, NIGHTingale BLADE/Bow, Gauldur Blackblade/Bow, Drainheart Sword, and/or Drainspell Bow.
    Notes: Masters of Stealth, and Illusion, they use them to kill without all the messy risk and confrontation of combat. "Don't Fight, Kill." They use Light Armor mostly to carry useful Enchantments, and have no need to create their own. Often allied with the Daedra of Silence, and the Night, Sithis, Nocturnal, and the Night Mother, they may even be blessed as Agents, or spoken to directly by their infernal masters. Often considered mythical, for those with the dubious luck to actually see one never live long enough to tell anyone.

    Omnibos:​
    Race: Any, I used Redguard, many would prefer Breton. The least number of initial skill bonuses, the more likely you will unlock enough perk points before the soft level cap.
    Alignment: Neutral (Independent)
    Factions: The Greybeards? Otherwise set up for any fight, alone, but with Shouts, so Dovakiin. Did 1 job each for the Forsworn, and Penitus Oculatus, left on good terms. Formerly associated with the Blades.
    Primary Skills:Archery, Block, 1H.
    Secondary Skills: Light Armor, Restoration, Alteration
    Tertiary Skill: Sneak. (Just for Sniping, at the beginning of battle.)
    Perks: Skyrim Perk Calculator - Plan the perks for your Skyrim character before spending them!
    Standing Stone: The Lord.
    Shouts: Wuld, FRD, Elemental Fury, Ice Form, Dragonrend.
    Equipment: Primarily an archer, but capable in the melee, typically decimates the enemy before it comes to that. Krosis, Gauntlets of the Old Gods, Savior's Hide, and Shrouded Boots are all the Enchantments needed. A Very Good bow, unsmithed, without going through any factions beyond the Blades (who turned their backs on ME!) A good Sword, Gauldur Blackblade, and Bow work well, also a Supple Falmer bow I happened across, really depends on Radiant. The BoW. Spellbreaker, or Targe of the Blooded, depending on the fight.
    Notes: Everything I need, nothing I don't. Long Range, Close Quarters, and some Magic to Assist. (Largely in Perks) Powerful, but not OP on Adept, solo, and without using any glitches. Trained up from level 1 without any grinding outside of Combat. No Crafting beyond charging weapons.

    Obs: A Melee Mage rager, he's named for a habit of juggling 3 spells. Ebony Flesh, Flame Cloak, and dual Bound Swords. Not the most protection, but you don't want to let him close, or he will PWN you. Uses Whirlwind Sprint (Just the first Word for faster recharge) to charge into the next fight, pausing just to top off his spells. 55% Magic Resistance, 350 AR, but relies mostly on Mobility, and almost unstoppable offense to survive. Doesn't heal in battle. A true Berserker despite his magical bent, he doesn't stop until he dies, or everyone else does. Stripped down to the Elder Scroll to destroy Alduin. Occasionally switches to Drainheart Swords when Magicka is low, or Adrenaline Rush has been already used that day.
