Firstname -Tazeem (pronunciation: Ta-zeem).

Surname -Doesn't know one.

Sex -Male.

Race -Redguard.

Age -36.

Occupation -Occasionally does mercenary work but usually just wanders.

Faction -Daggerfall Covenant.

Appearance -Black hair done in ridges down the back of his head, height about 6'3 very muscular and strong built his skin is darker than most of his kind and he has large hands and feet. He has many scars and two black wavy lines tattooed coming from beneath each eye and another from his lips as well as two more black rings with triangles pointing downwards tattooed on each bicep. His apparel is usually standard Redguard medium armor over red cloth pants and shirt in Redguard style with a head wrap of the same material that covers his entire head but his eyes. His weapons of choice are usually two scimitars and four curved daggers and three serrated ones as well as two leather straps across his chest that hold throwing knives and more on a belt around his waist.

Personality -More of a strong silent type isn't socially awkward or homo-phobic but prefers solitude over a populated city though he does visit them often. He's very defensive and firm in his beliefs and opinions and those he cares about, often called stubborn but he prefers 'persistent' or 'right'. Never questions orders from a superior or an employer unless they are morally wrong or incredibly idiotic.

Social Background/Backstory -Orphaned on the streets of Sentinel he was barely clinging to life when he was found by an old Redguard man who was wealthy but not a noble by any means who raised him as a son. He was fascinated by the art of wielding a blade and the tales of Frandar Hunding and the sword saints and masters of the Sheihai and trained whenever he got a blade in hand, be it a butter knife from when he was 7 to his first sword at 16. He trained relentlessly out of simple fascination for the art rather than a need for it's use and grew better than he thought himself. His foster father died when he was 21 of age and Tazeem found himself with the house, he was eager to travel and test his skill against foes but he couldn't sell the house, he felt that would dishonor his fathers memory so he hired a butler to manage it while he traveled and set off to adventure across Tamriel. Normally his people looked down upon most magics but Tazeem found the power one could wield with it fascinating while he was in High Rock where he saw much of it and decided to study it. He was not nearly as eager as when he had learned the art of blades but he was determined to learn and that he did, Destruction, Mysticism, Alteration, and Thaumatergy appealed to him the most because he still had a bit of his peoples mistrust of magic that affected the mind.

Best Memory -Getting his first sword.

Worst Memory -His foster fathers funeral.

Skills -Master of blades and medium armor, adept in destructive and Mysticism magics as well as Thaumatergy and Alteration.

Challenges for the Character -Doesn't really have any that he can't face with a blade.

Birthsign The Tower.

Religious Views Redguard Pantheon, as well as almost worshiping Frandar Hunding though he knows that he is not a divine.

Politics Views Always had respect for the Orcs and Bretons so he follows his rulers decisions.

Yay, a Redguard ;D

He's a tall fella! I like how you made him very adept with a blade, it's only fitting for a Ra Gada warrior ;) Keep in mind though that magic was heavily frowned upon within Redguard-culture; you write that he's proficient in various magical schools, perhaps he would not be open about that?

All in all, glad to see you made a Redguard! They really need some love (like the Orcs)!

Thanks Triskele! the Redguards mostly frown upon Illusion and Conjuration like magics that alter the mind, most are fine with Destruction magic but yes he would keep his magic mostly to himself.

What do you mean he doesn't know his surname? And was his foster father rich?

Yes his foster father was rich but preferred to live quietly rather than as a noble. He doesn't know his surname because he was orphaned at a very young age and can't recall one and it doesn't feel right to him to take his foster fathers surname.

I like this one.

An unusual Redguard, yet grounded in the traditions and history of his people, and the tales of Hunding. You could expand on where he learned his magic, presumably not in Hammerfell?

Oh, and as an aside, its seems a little odd that you put he was not homophobic. Did you mean he isn't antisocial/misanthropic, or literally that he doesn't hate homosexuals?

Not antisocial but he doesn't hate homosexuals either, Yeah I should probably tell where he picked up the magic, probably in High Rock or something.
