    Viking
    Race: Nord
    Alignment: Chaotic/Neutral
    Factions: Stormcloaks, Companions
    Major Skills: Two Handed, Light Armor, Block
    Minor Skills: Smithing, Archery
    Perks: Skyrim Perk Calculator - Plan the perks for your Skyrim character before spending them!
    Guardian Stone: Lord Stone
    Shouts: Unrelenting Force, Elemental Fury, Call of Valor, Clear Skies, Dismay
    Equipment: Scaled Armor, Battleaxe
    Obs.: The viking is the quintessential barbarian. He runs into the frey in light armor, which he much favors over the slower and clunkier heavier armors. Also unlike the common warrior, he prefers two handed weapons over the traditional shield and sword. The viking is also a master craftsman that makes some decent coin at the forge, although not enough to compare to what he gets from village pillaging and dungeon delving. A strong and proud nord, he believes in Skyrim's independence and will fight for his homeland.

    Kratos
    Race: Imperial
    Alignment: Chaotic/Neutral-Evil
    Factions: None
    Major Skills: One Handed, Heavy Armor, Conjuration
    Minor Skills: Smithing, Enchanting, Archery, Two-Handed
    Perks: Skyrim Perk Calculator - Plan the perks for your Skyrim character before spending them!
    Guardian Stone: The Lord Stone
    Shouts: Dismay, Marked for Death, Whirlwind Sprint
    Equipment: General Tullius' Armor, Dwarven Gauntlets and Boots, Dual Daedric Swords (Soul Trap + Fire Enchants), More Daedric Weaponry
    Obs.: The God of War, Kratos is a merciless killer bent on vengeance who will stop at nothing to tear through his enemies. He is loyal to no faction and is no stranger to betrayal. All of his actions are based solely on what he wants and how he feels. He is proficient in all weaponry, but overall prefers dual-wielding swords. Kratos also has the power to call upon the souls of those he's slayed and summon them to fight along side him in battle. Having a history of manipulating the divine, and vice versa, he will come into contact with many of the Daedra, and use their artifacts in his journeys to help hack n' slash his way to victory.

    Alik'r Spellsword
    Race: Redguard
    Alignment: Neutral
    Factions: Companions, College
    Major Skills: One-Handed, Destruction, Alteration, Enchanting
    Minor Skills: Smithing, Illusion
    Perks: Skyrim Perk Calculator - Plan the perks for your Skyrim character before spending them!
    Guardian Stone: Lord Stone
    Shouts: Unrelenting Force, Marked for Death
    Equipment: Redguard Cloth, Scimitars
    Obs.: The Alik'r Spellsword is trained equally both in spellcasting, as well as combat. He or she uses magic for armor, and alternates between twin Scimitars, and a spell in one hand, and a Scimitar in the other. Generally speaking, for archers and spellcasters, the Spellsword closes the distance and with a flame cloak spell active, runs through an opponents like a buzzsaw. Against heavily armored opponents, the Alik'r keeps their distance, using spells and if the opponent gets close, they drop the spell from their left hand and use weapon bash to stun an opponent and either get more distance, or wield two scimitars and cut the enemy down.

    Beastmaster
    Race: Khajiit
    Alignment: Lawful/Good
    Factions: Dawnguard, Companions
    Major Skills: One Handed, Light Armor, Lycanthropy
    Minor Skills: Illusion, Sneak, Smithing
    Perks: Skyrim Perk Calculator - Plan the perks for your Skyrim character before spending them!
    Guardian Stone: Lord Stone
    Shouts: Animal Allegiance, Kyne's Peace, Call Dragon, Dragonrend
    Equipment: Savior's Hide, Hide Bracers and Boots, Hircine's Ring, Dual Axes
    Obs.: The Beastmaster is a hunter, that instead of killing all of the animals he encounters, recruits some to fight by his side. He can even have armored trolls accompany him on his journeys. Letting his beast followers deal some, but not all of the damage, he specializes in dual wielding weapons. He can use a wide array of one handed arms, but will generally apt for axes. The Beastmaster is also a master beast, and can summon forth several of his werewolf companions to help tear through the opposition.

    Class:
    Rune Archer
    Race:
    Wood Elf
    Alignment:
    Lawful/Neutral

    Factions:
    All Skyrim factions = full benefits across Skyrim
    Dawnguard = crossbows with 50% armor penetration
    Major Skills: Archery, Enchanting, Destruction, Sneak
    Minor Skills: One-handed, Illusion, Restoration, Alteration, Smithing
    Perks: Skyrim Perk Calculator - Plan the perks for your Skyrim character before spending them!
    Guardian Stone:
    Primary = Shadow Stone
    Aetherial Crown = Serpent Stone
    Shouts: Animal Allegiance, Aura Whisper, Call Dragon, Call Valor, Dismay, Dragonrend, Marked for Death, Summon Durnehviir, Whirlwind Sprint, Unrelenting Force

    Equipment:
    Dragonbone Bow = Frost + Shock
    Hat = Archery + Fortify Destruction
    Clothes = Regen Magicka + Fortify Destruction
    Gloves = Archery + Sneak
    Boots = Regen Stamina + Sneak
    Neck = Archery + Fortify Destruction
    Finger = Archery + Sneak
    EDIT:
    Sets of circlets, amulets, and rings allow me to swap for free casts of any magic school.
    Obs.:
    As you behold the overwhelming power of the Rune Archer, using the Dragonborn shouts are merely used for large floods of enemies. As you wield a mystically powerful bow, blades, and spells, you have full control of battles in any way you desire. Attack a group of enemies in the dark with your blades, station destructive runes on the ground as you prepare an archer's high ground assault, or even be right out in the open and calm and paralyze your weak foes so you can concentrate on the tougher ones.

    Using companions merely makes you inefficient in close combat, because your power lies within the darkness and distance. However, you're not fully stunted with having companions to aid you. Control the flow of combat and aid your comrades in taking on enemies.

    Strategy is your greatest ally. Use it to your will.

    Obs.: The adventurer is an expert explorer, whose goals are to put as much locations on the map and clear as many dungeons as possible. He wears light armor for faster movement and is a traditional shield and sword user. The adventurer is skilled in the picking of locks, as he is bound to run into many locked doors and chests. He is also bound to run into many alchemical ingredients as he roams around the landscape, for which he uses to make useful potions and deadly poisons for coating his sword. Skilled at bartering, he is also talented at getting a good price for the many treasures and artifacts he finds on his journeys.

    Obs.: Robin Hood is a master archer and also does well with a sword. He is the quintessential thief, and steals from the rich and gives to the poor. He wears clothing, and his flamboyant, green tunic is the last thing his foes never saw.

Perhaps his greatest skill, the witch doctor uses alchemy to create useful potions, and more importantly, even deadlier poisons. Having great knowledge of magical affects, he is also an adept enchanter and illusionist.

He defends himself with alteration spells, and dispels all evil with his mace and destruction magic. Being a priest, his words are often taken to heart, and his illusion and speech skills are unmatched.

    I'm bored, so I thought I'd make a shout out to Castle Crashers by recreating some of the playable characters in the game as builds in Skyrim. Here are the default characters, the knights. By the way I'm a bit too lazy to do the perks. Too much work for something you could probably have figured out on your own. Well anyway...

    Green Knight

    Alignment: Chaotic/Good
    Factions: The King
    Major Skills: One Handed, Block, Heavy Armor
    Minor Skills: Alchemy, Archery
    Guardian Stone: Serpent Stone
    Shouts: Marked for Death
    Equipment: Heavy Armor, Sword and Shield
    Obs.: A knight with the power to control the element of poison

    Red Knight
    Race: Any
    Alignment: Chaotic/Good
    Factions: The King
    Major Skills: One Handed, Block Heavy Armor
    Minor Skills: Destruction, Archery
    Guardian Stone: Lady Stone

    Ronin
    Race: Any elf or human I choose a redguard for best synergy (note: I see elves as the fantasy asain culture counter part.)

    Alignment: Lawful Neutral to Chaotic Nuetral (best fit in my opinion)

    Factions: Companions, Dark Brotherhood, and Ex-Leigon

    Major skills: 1 handed, later 2 handed, Alteration (for armor)

    Minor skills: speech, enchanting (and smithing though only for weapon inprovements)

    Perks: Mostly 1 handed, and alteration. 2handed later (i can exsplain later.)

    Guardian stone: Lord Stone

    Shouts: Slow Time, Marked for death, and elemental fury (the one that makes you attack faster.)

    Equipment: At first blades swords, basic clothes (armor or resistance enchantments.), then it is pair of Daedric Swords, and high level you get the higher level version of the Ebony Blade.

    Obs.: A Ronin is a disgraced/exiled warrior. He is considered honorless, but still fights with the disipline and incredible training. Cast your armor spells before a fight and switch to your sword(s). using Slow time you can create the effect (when you are that bored) of drawing your weapon cutting an enemy down then sheathing it before they hit the ground. Note this is a pretty squishy class you you might loose against some of the tougher enemies if you let them hit you.

    Obs.: The tactician is a charismatic leader who sits back and supports his followers and summoned atronachs while they dish out the damage. His heavy armor makes him a great damage absorber and uses his restoration and illusion magic to heal and rally his followers. Being a master orator and speech giver, he has a high speechcraft skill. The tactician's crafting skills are unmatched, and he uses them to create the finest weapons and armor for those who fight for him.

The Bounty HUnter has! and he also has a thrown made out of skulls and a library of bounty letters. You best hope none of them are yours. Because if he knows your name, he's already found you.

He is daedric champion chosen to deal a swift and painful revenge and retribuition in their names, one at a time.
