[Image: Endaros-Character.jpg]

Name: Endaros Ilmori

Race: Dunmer

Age: 34 (Born 2E 548, Evening Star)

Origin: A Farm in the West Gash, Vvardenfell, Morrowind

Birth-sign: The Serpent

Occupation: Buoyant Armiger

Relatives: Falvis Ilmori, Father. Narisa Ilmori, Mother.

Brief description of appearance: Endaros is a young and agile dark elf with ash grey skin and bright red eyes common to his people. His black hair falls naturally on his head in an unkempt fashion, evidence of an active life of travel. Across the left side of his face is an ancestral tattoo of archaic and reverent design to mark his lineage as well as his devotion to the Tribunal Temple.

His outfit of choice tends to be a set of bone-white chitin armor so that he may stand against danger yet remain light on his feet. A scarf around his neck, made by his mother, and a pair of goggles on his head help protect him from the harsh elements he frequently finds himself facing. Meanwhile his preferred armaments consists of a silver longsword and recurve bow; prime weapons to wield against enemies of the Tribunal both near and far. At times he can even be found using a silver spear when traveling into dangerous wasteland regions such as Molag Amur.

Religious point of view: Although he is a staunch devotee of the Tribunal, his light-hearted nature and free spirit tend to put him at odds with the more strict priests of the Temple.

Political point of view: The machinations of politics are not something he particularly enjoys and he avoids them when possible. He himself treats all with courtesy and respect in his own way, whether they be friend or foe. Nevertheless he believes in a sovereign Dunmer nation, free of foreign rule, and from this belief he is willing to defend Morrowind and its people with his life.

Loves: Acts of Heroism, Adventure, Exploration, Scuttle with Saltrice

Hates: Corruption, Selfishness, Staying in one place

Background: Born as the son of humble farmers on the island of Vvardenfell- Endaros was a daring and mischievous child whom frequently got himself into trouble of all sorts. Whether it was exploring the wilderness of the West Gash alone or poking sleeping Alit beasts with a stick; life was always an adventure to him (albeit a dangerous one that would nearly frighten his parents to death.) Often times he tried to re-enact tales such as Vivec’s legendary battle with the Ruddy Man. Of course instead of doing battle with a terrifying dreugh, it would be a hapless scrib that he’d be careful to not truly harm.

One day, he returned home feeling weak and short of breath. An illness took him over and worsened to the point where he could barely breathe and lacked the strength to walk. It was suspected he had caught more than just a common disease, something more sinister and of darker origins. Regardless of what it was, his parents feared that he would not survive as his condition only waned.

By the grace of luck or divine intervention, a wandering healer of the Tribunal Temple arrived at their doorstep one evening. With blessed restorative arts she purged the sickness from the fading child; breathing new life into his body. Before the healer could even be thanked she left and disappeared into the night.

Ever since his recovery, Endaros has pledged himself to the service of the Temple. He greatly reveres their compassion and valor to which they share with the people of Morrowind, no matter who they may be. In time he was inducted into the order of the Buoyant Armigers, the knight-errant of Lord Vivec.

Although he has never found the healer who saved his life as a child, he hopes to cross paths with her one day and repay his debt.

For now he travels the world seeking new adventures to overcome. While he is young and not as experienced as others of his order; he possesses formidable skill with the blade, a keen mind, a sharp tongue, and perhaps most important of all a heroic spirit.

Yep! Took much longer to get a good picture than I care to admit too! First time I noticed that the sky does not stay the same from day to day. There's clouds sweeping about, and moons floating by so not every sight of the sky is the same. That last shot was pure luck!

I had read your character's bio last night, but I forgot to comment, sadly. It's a very nice story you got yourself here. And I just love the screenshots. If I could figure out a way to take some from my xbox360, I'd do it too. I look forward to possible updates of your story! :)

I remember playing Elder Scrolls on console and wanting screenshots. Definitely is tricky to do!

A good camera and a bit of editing might make a decent shot.

Or you could perhaps use that shot or describe what you want to someone with Skyrim on PC. Then they can try to replicate what you like. If you need a hand with that, let me know!

A nice character, I think Ednaros and Thorfinn might get along.

not seeing any particular innacuricies here.
But id revise a few things:

His age. hes EXTREMELEY young for a bouyant armiger. Remember we are speaking about dunmer here. Their lifespans are long, and the Bouyant Armigers are an elite unit who respond to Twice-Vekh alone.
They are not regular servants of the temple. Thats one of the reasons why i disputed the idea of making a guild based around those figures.

On his views: beeing a bouyant armiger, it would only natural to be in line with Vivec teachings.
Beeing Bi- (or Omni-) sexuality is not required but generaly widespread on the followers of Vivec.
Selfishness is something that should be seen in a different light. For it is always part of what makes Vekh, Vekh.
For love.
Love should be one of the major driving forces for someone who embraces the god-trickster of the star woundet east.
It is his most important teaching afterall.

Also he should have studied the Sermons and follow the path of the immobile warrior.

Keep in mind that martial skill is not the only requirement to become a Bouyant Armiger.
A sharp tongue, skill in Poetry, dance and belly-magic is as important to a warrior-poet of twice-vekh.

@Sordakk Geez can't you let someone make their own character without nitpicking it to death.

@ Endaros Loved the character. Interesting choice for religion, as it doesn't fully seem in his nature, but his having been healed by them does make for a devout believer, so it works.

Hey Sordak, can I ask where you got all that? I have an Armiger character myself and I thought I had done enough research, looked through UESP for relevant pages like I normally would. Not that I'm questioning your sources, but that kind of stuff adds layers to characters and I'd like to be able to look through it myself.

Dunmer's age has always been a bit rough to get a firm grasp on. Certainly they live for a long time, but it's vague on issues such as point of maturity, and the range of which a typical Dunmer lifespan may be.

Barenziah was born in 2E 893 and lives for 431 years at least until the events of Morrowind in 3E 427. But then again she lived in relative comfort and luxury for the most part which apparently has contributed to her long age.
Source: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Barenziah

On the flipside, there's Alvur Relds who in his interview is around 50 years old and that's considered to be his prime despite his 20 prior years in the legion. He suspects he will live until he 120.
http://www.imperial-library.info/search/...th%20alvur

I'll have to think about it, but if he's too young at 34 perhaps the 40-50 year range is a bit more reasonable.

I've often wondered just how "elite" and exclusive the buoyant armigers are in comparison to other trained warriors and knights. Ulyne Henim is a buoyant armiger but apparently is "inexperienced" and goes as far as hiring the foreign Fighter's Guild to help her deal with a necromancer. Meanwhile Giras Indaram is a buoyant armiger but is a bit of a punk who doesn't repay debts he owes, which seems very unchivlarous. Rumor is his brother also bailed him out of jail.

In terms of his dislike of "Selfishness," I would mean the negative things that come from it such as cowardice or greed.

I tried to subtly imply that Endaros had a sharp tongue, though perhaps this isn't apparent enough. I'm aware of the buoyant armigers' skill over poetry however and their study of the Sermons, and would like to reflect this in future writings. I'll need to work on when such expression is appropriate though, as buoyant armigers met in Morrowind never spoke poetically; though it's assumed they are able to.

In terms of him being in line with Vivec's teachings, so far I've been working on library submissions mirroring Vivec's adventures in the Pilgrim's Path. Although some of the events in the Pilgrim's Path have not occured by the time of TESO, I feel like they are virtues that can be expressed regardless.

In the bio I haven't written what Endaros is capable of in terms of combat, magic, or wordplay-- but I hope to reflect that in short stories.

Admittedly, I'll have to learn a little bit more about the path of the Immobile Warrior as well as what belly-magic exactly is. I also wasn't aware dance was part of their repetoire.

Thanks for the help Sordak! I may make a few edits to better reflect the character and his devotion.

Thanks for the kind words! I figured worship of the Tribunal is pretty widespread throughout the Dunmer, even among the more unlikely of personas. I also tried to imply that Endaros looked up to Vivec early on his life, so having his life saved by the Temple just tops it off.

Also don't worry about me receiving critiques! I'm cool with them. I did ask him to lore-review it. I do appreciate your effort though.

Even if someone came in and told me, "This is terrible, never write again, go commit harakiri twice." I'd be alright. Thumbs_up
