These things are always good to have lying around on a forum ^^ I used a slightly different one myself, a bit more adjusted to TES and the setting, but stuff like this really helps you out if you want to figure and flesh out a character.

Do you have any suggestions how it could be edited? I am always looking to improve things and I am open to criticism.

Oh, I didn't mean anything should change about this one, it's a good general template applicable to any universe :)

What I have additionally in mine is Birth-sign, Religious Views and Political Views, since those matter quite a bit in Tamriel, the latter two anyway. The first is just something extra to pull the TES-calendar in ;)

Aye, I pretty much used Triskele's sheet for Vrage's, since it covered all the basic points. I only added Birthsign.

One thing I think that can prove useful in the template is a "Race - " line. Often times I'll be wondering what race the character is until they reach describing their appearance, or would have to infer it if they do not mention it.


Character Profiles:
Endaros Ilmori - Buoyant Armiger
Sunrio - Aldmeri Justiciar

Taren Jucanis - Imperial Deserter (Used for The Black Shroud RP)

Nice!

I'd just like to second the "race" line, as there's been a few profiles where I just haven't been able to figure it out when I was reading through them. Sometimes, the names gives a hint, but sometimes, I'm slow and need it spelled out >.<

There is something missing but can't put my Finger on it.. We can wait till ESO is release or till NDA is removed to add more?

OH I know what it was!.. The Characters Child Hood - How he/she got scares and so on, where they discovered magic or forced to serve in the army or how they become a hunter and so on.. Hope this helps you.

Great JOB BTW, I like BIO's.
