Maybe you think me remorseless, but nothing else matters after all.

They kill, you kill... villages are burned, villages are rebuilt... that´s the circle of pain, rebirth and suffering we Altmer want to end.

Firstname - Andarcya

Opprobrious Nickname - the Golden Saint

Sex - female

Race - Altmer

Age - 208

Occupation - Philosopher, sword fighter, fighter for the dominion

Faction - Aldmeri Dominion

Appearance - Not as tall as other Altmer, brouder shoulders, fair golden skin, gold-blonde hair. Usually wears heavy golden elven armor. Most eye-catching: Her irises and pupils are waves crossing her eyes.

Personality - short tempered, arrogant, looking down on others, even other Altmer, no patience, easy to anger – She still has a softer side, trying to be kind and tolerant: This comes mostly from the knowledge of her superiority and her birthsign, the Lady

Sometimes she calls the people around her mortals, or thinks of them like that. In such cases she will quickly correct herself, remembering herself, that she is a mortal, too.

Alignement - lawful good

Character´s Theme



Social Background/Backstory -
Her father Ruwenmar – an artist and philosopher from Cloudrest– had always been a rebel against the constricting rules and social standards of the Altmer society – of course in narrow confinces, as the Altmer doesn´t tolerate any dissidents. Actually Ruwenmar feared for his life sometimes but that could have been due to his character, being described as paranoid. Despite of his fears he always hoped to change something, creating a better society for the Altmer. Also he had a mighty landlord as friend who protected him. Maybe he was in favor of his odd ideas, maybe it was just amusement.

Of course Ruwenmar´s hopes to change something were proved wrong. He failed to convince a larger group for his ideas of society and divines when he exclaimed them in public. His landlord friend, taken aback by his plans, advised him to leave Summerset before he was executed for his heresy.

Some days later soldiers broke into his housing but Ruwenmar was gone. There were no hints where he could have gone. Just a single line was written on a piece of parchment in his working chamber:

"I will stay and leave the isles

Therefore change the Summerset to the Shivering"

Centuries later, when he and his deeds were out of the peoples minds, Ruwenmar reappeared. He suddenly stood in the city gates of Cloudrest, too weak to walk any longer, and to exhausted to talk. In his arms he held a newborn Altmer baby. Of course it was taken from his hands and brought to the halls where all newborns are examined for flaws.

The process of examining took much longer than usual: Approved in all points of the Aldmeri standard – more that that – the girl had one eye catching flaw: Her pupils and irises were no circles. They were waves, crossing her eyes horizontally. Noone could explain such thing. But Ruwenmar, finally strong enough to talk, demanded that the life of his daughter was spared, nameing his old landlord friend.

So finally the censors approved the newborn Altmera reluctantly. The serial number of 1 – 4 – 1 RK 9 – 1 was given to her, A D A K I A, pronounced as Andarcya.

Ruwenmar – who took a wrong name – chose the position of an artist, trying to provide a good life for his daughter. His ideas of changing the society he abandonded. He specialized in crafting jewelry, lateron weapons and armor, when the world came closer to the war. Also he did paintings. Oddly he didn´t only crafted portraits of the nobles and landlords who visited him. He furthermore drew pictures of a Golden Saint warrioress. Of course, paintings depicting Daedra were looked at as pure heresy. But Ruwenmar´s paintings were of such beauty, no beholder could state that his art should be banned. So he continued drawing portraits for money and always the very same Golden Saint for his own pleasure.

But during the time, Ruwenmar´s pictures of the Golden Saint changed. At first the Aureal was depicted as cruel and strict, but over the years her face got softer and fairer. He even romanticed the Daedra, making her look more and more beautiful and amiably. Finally Ruwenmar depicted himself courting the blushing Golden Saint with lute and rhymes.

Soon the rumours were spread, Ruwenmar had traveled the Shivering isles and fell in love with this Golden Saint, he kept on drawing. This also led to Andarcya being called a daughter of a Golden Saint. An obvious proof to that seemed to be her strange shaped eyes.

Of course it didn´t help to state that a mortal and a lesser Daedra were never capable of having children. But as her origin was unclear the rumour kept on spreading. Also the fact was ignored that her eyes weren´t slit pupils, but waves. Because of her strange eyes she always was teased by her peers, making it hard for Andarcya to be part of a group. Being short-tempered, having no patience and looking down on the Altmers of the same age, she even was said to show the characteristic traits of a Golden Saint. She even was caught calling her peers teasing her "stupid mortals" while scuffling them, which she of course corrected in the same breath. She didn´t want to be anything else, than a mortal, too.

When Andarcya was around fifty years old a civil war raged in the heartland of Alinor. Eventually Cloudrest, the home of Andarcya and her father lay under siege. Ruwenmar could escape and fled with his daughter to the city of Alinor, having the same like the island of Alinor. Having suffered from the chaos that came along war she decided to become a warrioress to defend order when she was mature.

Andarcya decided to prove that she was a true Altmera, fulfilling the very Aldmeri standard. She put much more effort than her coeval Altmer into her schoolworks, achieving the best grades in art, literature and magic, especially destruction and alteration. As she was stronger than her peers she also trained with the weapons and armors her father smithed for her, prefering the blade and heavy armor. Furthermore she zealosly engaged in philosophical debates, theatre and the neverending chants for the divines, to be perfect in every manner of the standard. So she established herself a reputation as a sharp tongued and short tempered in discussion, but well thought, and as sword fighteress of superiour physical strenght and cunning.

When Andarcya was around 200 years old and referred to as full age, Ruwenmar again tried to publish his thoughts. His daughter, worried about his safety and sanity, tried to stop him, but she failed: Again in public, Ruwenmar exclaimed his point of views and caused great consternation amongst the Altmers. On the one hand they loved his paintings and jewelry, but on the other hand they couldn´t stand his heresy. So Ruwenmar was arrested and all of his art, jewelry and weapons was confiscated. The only thing left to Andarcya was Ruwenmar´s sword, he crafted for her 200th birthday. She herself, esteemed for her combat skills and philosophical discussion tongue, tried to convince the officials to release her father, as not dangerous insane. As the officials realised that Andarcya even would use violence to set her father free, a high sapiarch decided to utilise her odd wish to see her father. He banned him from Summerset secretly, informing Andarcya that Ruwenmar was now on the continent, his whereabouts unknown.

So Andarcya joined the troops of the Aldmeri Dominion to get the chance to travel Tamriel to finally find her father again.


Best Memory - Her father giving her self made jewelry as present, when she was a child, as reward for her excellent efforts in school

Worst Memory - Her father being arrested and brought away by the guards, knowing that she would hurt the rules if she would free him/ the other kids teasing her for her strange looking eyes, having no friends when she was a child/ Seeing Cloudrest burn and suffering the chaos of a civil war as child

Skills - Heavy armor, one handed, destruction and alteration

Challenges for the Character - Ivory-tower, wordly innocent. Once angry, she isn´t easily calmed down again. Once in the state of enragement she will be like a fury, falling to exhaustion and weakness to the end. Sometimes she gets confused with a Golden Saint, due to her appereance, what makes her angry and sad. She doesn´t understand, how the low life races can survive in towns without theatre, libraries or philosophical discussions. Also the joys of simple life are odd to her.

Birthsign - The Lady

Religious Views - She strongly believes in the Aedra and desmises the Daedra. She is for religious freedom, but hates it if her religion is claimed wrong. Though she lets everybody choose their own religion, knowing that in the end all other religions will die out. But she doesn´t believe that she herself will see the restoration of the era of Dawn.

Politics Views - Order over everything. She has the urgent feeling that the Dominion should share its wisdom and wealth with the other races. Even if they don´t want it. While forcing them to their luck she simply would wait till everyone who resists dies of high age.

Great character. This is a really cool idea.. Not knowing if she's half daedra or not and all I mean, and the fact she's and Altmer makes it that much harder to tell if there really is Golden Saint in her. I never would have thought of something like this, so kudos man I like it.

But in the next RPs I use her, I will rather concentrate on her missing father and her sensitive feelings for justice and order. But still, she is lawful good, deal with it.

Added a few lines about a civil war, that made her move from Cloudrest to Alinor, so that her living in Alinor gives sense ;)
