Faction & Race:
Ebonheart Pact
Dunmer
Firstname - Svadas
Surname - Vendal
Title - "Knife-Ears" is normally his name for those who aren't Elven, due to the shape of his ears.
Sex - Male
Race - Dunmer
Age - 151
Occupation - Assassin
Faction - Morag Tong
Appearance - He is rather tall, slim and has black hair. He is unscathed completely and often stares with his red eyes. His skin is of a fair shade of blue, which really does bring the red of his eyes out.
Personality - Kind to those who he 'sees as worthy'. He is very judgemental and will act towards you how he thinks he should. If you say anything against Mephala, don't expect him to like you. He is friendly to the Nords more than any other race because of his experiences over in Skyrim, and the Nords he has met. One individual, whose name he never knew, was a fine Nord woman. "She would lift a hammer half her weight, and wear armour twice her weight", as Svadas would say. He learned to respect her, and the Nord culture, while not even thinking about comparing it to his own. To him, Dunmer and Nords are alike. They stick with their people, and they never give up. Svadas also acts like he always knows what he is doing, whether he does, and will act, or doesn't, and says it to just boost morale, is another story, which can lead to many possibilities.
Social Background/Backstory - Born on the 6th of Frostfall, Svadas Vendal hails from the Dunmer province of Morrowind, Svadas is a proud Dunmer. He is friendly towards Dunmer and Nords much more than all the other races. Despite the Pact, Svadas still believes that Argonians should be slaves, but of course, he will have to like you to share that with you. However, he will defend any child with his life, after seeing his friend's family be murdered infront of him. He also believes that the only assassins should be the Morag Tong, a place he found to be most homely.
Best Memory - His best memory was when he killed the Dunmer, Vulyn Girend, a self-employed assassin who was in Morrowind at one point. After a long conversation of both their careers, Svadas killed him, and merely walked on. This was, however, because he had a Writ for this person. This became his best memory due to him despising all assassins, except those of the Tong. This was also one of his first writs, which impressed those in the upper ranks, of the Morag Tong hierarchy. He didn't hate Vulyn himself, but he hated Vulyn's intentions, and what he stood for.
Worst Memory - His worst memory was watching his friend's family be cut down before him. Svadas was not in the Tong at this point, but he knew how to fight. He pursued a woman for three days, with minimal rest. In the end, the woman who he was chasing, who was Argonian, reached her camp where Svadas' good friends were. As he ran to save them, the Argonian killed the family, one by one. Starting with the oldest, ending with the youngest. He was so close to having a knife go in to the murderers head, but the child was heavily bleeding before he reached them.
Skills - He is relatively skilled with stealth, moderately skilled with daggers and the bow, but is better skilled with the art of talking... Should this be persuasion, intimidation of threatening.
Challenges for the Character - A challenge that Svadas has to come is getting over his hate for the other races, especially the Argonians, south of his home. He must also learn to master the ways of the Morag Tong, and to look further than just following 'Mephala's Orders' and keeping on like that. The more you know him, and of him, the more he shall reveal to you.
Birthsign The Tower
Religious Views He believes in the Tribunal, aswell as a more important Daedra, Mephala. He tends to shrug off the Tribunal often, only occasionally worshipping them. However, he worships Mephala a lot.
Politics Views He believes that a Dunmer should sit on the Ruby Throne due to the lifestyle that his people live. He doesn't, however, think that he should sit on the throne, due to not living enough, in his opinion. He thinks that a Dunmer who is a great user of magic should rule the Ruby Throne. Were it his choice, the Houses of Morrowind would share the Throne, but there can be only one emperor...
Death In one hundred years or so, Svadas will die. He will be given a Writ to assassinate a highly skilled and very deadly Dunmer, who could support any of the Great Houses. And like many scared nobles, they called for the Morag Tong. Svadas agrees to do the task, despite the oddly high reward. He does in fact kill the man, but dies of a poison during his return, or so they say. Rumours say that he never died, and has been around for a long, long time and that he has oddly sharp teeth. But, despite the rumours, he did die...

((I haven't done too much yet, I want to get the game and create Svadas before I have it as his final name, but the build will remain the same, of course. Also looking to plan a family of his, children and wife, especially, perhaps a parent or both. Now that you have read this, I would prefer for you to leave feedback, but it is your choice entirely. Also, included the 'Death' section for a greater insight, and for something to add, to make it more... unique))

I think this is a good base for your character with a solid outline of who he is and what he stands for. He's clearly a devoted member of the Morag Tong, though he also appears to be reserved in his demeanor and suspicious of foreigners, as the Dunmer characteristically are!

If you wish to expand this bio going forward, perhaps you should further detail the motivations behind some of his behavior. You don't have to say it outright of course, but things could be implied. For example, although Svadas hates foreigners, he's friendlier to the Nords in particular who have traditionally been the ancient enemies of the Dunmer in past history. Why is this so? I might assume he had an encounter with one before whom he learned to respect, but as it's written down now it's difficult to see if there's a reason behind this.

Another example would be his best memory, where he killed an independent assassin whom he had a writ for. Why does he cherish this as his best memory above all else? Was it the first time he pulled off a perfect assassination and he's proud of his accomplishment? When speaking to Vulyn Girend did he grow to hate him and enjoyed ending his life? These points among others could use some subtle hinting or more to their origin or reasoning.

In any case, I look forward to seeing you expand on this character!

Thanks for that feedback, I am going to edit it, to add those features ;)

Also a little deeper into the appearance if you are that far would be a good thing if you plan on rping here.
