Artist: Chris Rahn

Firstname - Jo'Naar
Sex - Male
Race - Dagi-raht
Age - 32
Occupation – Medic
Faction – Aldmeri Dominion

Appearance – Jo'Naar stands 5'8” and weighs 155 lbs. He has rather long fur compared to most Khajiit, and his head is draped in long dreadlocks. Deep blue eyes contrast his sand colored fur, which is lined with thin and jagged black stripes. Though he is of smaller stature, Jo'Naar is strong enough to use his spear to good effect. There are dark red tribal tattoos that cover his forehead and cheek bones.

Equipment – Jo'Naar carries a bronze spear tipped with a glass blade. It is enchanted to slow enemies for a short amount of time on hit. For armor Jo'Naar wears a weathered grey robe and in addition to bronze shoulder pads and wrist guards. He wears a necklace of thick glass beads and feathers that slightly increases his magika regeneration.

Personality – Jo'Naar is normally a calm soul. However he can be aroused to a fiery wrath, though it is a rare occurrence. He is very caring and always happy to aid others if he is able to. Jo'Naar is usually willing to trust others until they give him reason not to. As such he holds honesty as a very high value.

Social Background/Backstory – Jo'Naar was born in Torval near the border to Valenwood. As a Dagi-raht, he lived in the tree tops with the others of his breed and also the Dagis. Like many of his kind, Jo'Naar was quick to pick up on his natural magical skill. Trained by his father, Jo'Naar became an excellent healer. His father taught him spells of the destruction and alteration trees as well, but Jo'Naar was the best with restoration spells. His father, Jo'Zahk, also taught him how to wield a spear properly. His mother showed him the craft of alchemy, and Jo'Naar spent much time improving his knowledge of Tamriel's plants and their applications in alchemy. Jo'Naar worked as a priest and potion maker in the city until the Knahaten flu made it's way into Elsweyr. His parents bestowed him with their former gear, saying that they were now too old to leave. They would have to face the flu and hope for the best. Shortly after leaving Elsweyr, Jo'Naar stumbled upon two Khajiit fighting a minotaur lord. As they both were heavily wounded, Jo'Naar immediately rushed to their aid. The three of them were finally able to overcome the great minotaur after a great struggle. Jo'Naar would become life long friends with the other two: Fa'dul and Do'Shanji.

Best Memory – The days of his youth, spent learning and training. His parents prepared him well for his life's calling and it was something he was proud of.

Worst Memory – Leaving the sands of Elsweyr behind to escape the flu, like so many other Khajiit.

Skills – Very proficient: restoration, destruction, alchemy. Proficient: two handed, alteration.

Challenges for the Character – His friendly personality and helping attitude can sometimes lead him to fall into unfavorable situations. Being displaced from his homeland, he can become homesick at times.

Religious Views – Jo'Naar respects all deities in the Khajiit Pantheon, but his dedication to restoration will have him favor S'rendarr, the god of mercy.

Politics Views – Jo'Naar is in favor the the alliance with the Aldmeri Dominion, thinking it wise to team up with powerful mages in the elves. However his allegiance to the Dominion wouldn't stop him from helping a person in need, regardless of their race.

I so love this bio. Your Khajiit breed and his affiliation with the arcane is so lore-friendly its ridiculous. Also, idk where you got that pic, buts its amazing. Your political views I think are very well done, even if it a small bit. From most people, I would see them express how much they hate another alliance or race or blah blah (much like I do), but with yours, his primary concern is healing the sick and wounded. That is a value that is expressed in modern times and gives your character 2 important things: 1) he seems a little ahead of his time, but in a good way, and 2) makes him a more believable character.

Couple things, there are no spears in ESO right now, as far as RP it is a very interesting concept, but I fear it would clash when brought into the game. Another thing is that you point out that he is small in stature (agrees great with lore) but his measurements and weight are aggressively medium. Perhaps cutting a couple inches off would resolve that.

@Do'Rakk thanks for the comments!

Yes I'm afraid that the Dagi-raht will not even be a playable race when ESO is released. So for now at least, this character will exist only on these forums. That is why I have him using a spear, since it matched so well with the picture (which I got from magic the gathering, the Qasali Pridemage card to be specific). I've made Fa'dul and Jo'Naar to be characters in a story I'm writing and perhaps to use in some RPs here on the site. If I ever do decide to create Jo'Naar in game he will probably use a two handed sword instead or maybe a staff.

Originally I had him listed at 5'8" and 140lbs. but I was afraid that might seem a little small to effectively use a spear. Maybe keeping the smaller height, but increasing the weight to 155 lbs. would be better? Jo'Naar is a Dagi-raht, which is at least a bit larger than the Dagi, but I agree that they still would not be very large at all.

I could actually see him in game. Alot of MMO's have height sliders, so you could make him short and RP it. (I doubt the game itself will identify Khajiit by breed so in theory, noone could really argue).

I'm lovin the Khajiit bios Grape! I love how you have made it so that all you're Khajiiti chars have interacted with one another in one situation. Also like Do'Rakk said that pic is great.

Thanks Took! I always have ideas for characters, but I rarely feel like making them of another race ha! At least the Khajiit have so many sub-species and enough ambiguity in their lore for it to be worth while.

They are from a game called magic the gathering. It's a card game, pretty fun if you know of other people to play with. Pretty much every card has awesome artwork on it!
