Khajiit
Name - Azudar'Merrarthi (pronounced - Az-you-daa'Mer-aa-thi), Azu for short, (A name taken by the young Srassa when having to change her identity to hide. It is a mix of the Khajiit gods, Azurah, Baan Dar, Merrunz and and Khenarthi.)

Title - "Claw"

Gender - Female

Race - Khajiit - Cathay-Raht (Secunda, waxing - Masser, waxing)

Age - 24

Occupation - "Azu is a Khajiit of many trades, and for a cost is willing to serve you."

Faction - AD

Appearance - Azu is a very large Khajiit, some would say unusually large. She has a slim build despite this, much like an Altmer, with thick silver grey fur, the colour of metal. She has the eyes of a predator, like her mother, amber-yellow with flecks of brown. Due to an attack she has a large scar on her neck, though it is hidden by her fur.

The clothes she wears are usually of grey leather, softened by use and enchanted with spells to help her sneaking skills. She wears a grey hood that puts her face in shadow, but she only pulls it up when doing a job or sneaking. She wears no jewelry, apart from the earrings she wears, about seven on each ear. The earrings are tiny blades, forged from silver and sharp as Azu's claws.

Weapon - Azu uses her claws and the shadows to fight. Her tactic is subtle but effective, sneak up on you enemy and slit their throat, or break it.. Or even crush their skull on the ground! She loves feeling of blood run down her arms, or the satisfactory snap as the neck breaks beneath her fingers.

Personality - "Azu says you will have to meet khajiit before you can see her personality... If she doesn't kill you first."

Backstory - Srassa was born into a family trade caravan of Pahmar khajiit, the odd one out of all of them, apart from his grandmother. Srassa travelled from Elsweyr to High Rock, to Cyrodiil and even Black Marsh. By the time Srassa was ten she had travelled to all the continents. They were quite wealthy by the time they reached Elsweyr again, wealthy enough to buy a house of their own. They settled in a large house, still selling their wares from home. They started to become well know in the area, in the city of Senchal.

They lived contented and Srassa became spoilt by her family, knowing nothing but an easy life. The clothes she wore cost hundreds of pounds, and the jewelry double that. She had no training in fighting, or any skill. Her senses became dulled and over the time she became more like a spoilt human noble then a true Khajiit.

Srassa was a beautiful Khajiit, who had many of the town boys gawping at her whenever she went into the market. She had auburn fur, and huge amber eyes, flawless features and a slim build. The clothes she wore were the finest and her manners were perfect. She would walk around the town with a group of friends, all girls, but she was the leader, the most beautiful, the wittiest, the best. She would flirt shamelessly with the boys, to entertain them, but they had no chance.

When Srassa was a young adult of fifteen she began to venture into town on her own. Srassa had gone into town one dark day and was browsing a market stall, covered with brightly coloured scarves when she was grabbed from behind and carried squirming to a dark alleyway. Her captors loomed over her, their faces hidden by the shadows, but she could see them leering at her. One spoke in a gruff voice, "We can ransom her..." The other shook his head, "No, we kill her now and loot her body. The clothes and jewelry she carries is much more precious than her." The other nodded and drew a dagger slowly drawing it across Srassa's neck. Srassa screamed and the world went black...

Srassa awoke in her room, no men, no knife, no blood. She sat up and looked around, dazed before proceeding to get up out of bed but failing as her legs collapsed from underneath her. Desperately she tried to crawl across the floor, dragging her limp legs behind her. Finally, after ten minutes she had reached the stairs and her Grandmother found her there. Quickly she was taken back to her room where she was told what had happened...

"You went into town for a day, but hadn't returned by evening. Your father went out to look for you, and found you in the middle of the street with your neck slit. We thought we had lost you, but a Breton who had been staying at the local tavern managed to save your life. He had gone by the time we realised your spine had fractured... I'm sorry, my darling Srassa. I'm sorry."

Best memory - When she took on a new identity (third part of the backstory)

Worst memory - When her family was executed in front of her, then she was dragged away back to her prison cell.

Skills - Azu is excellent at sneaking, almost disappearing when she enters the shadows. She is also a good thief, and can pickpocket most items, and can also break most locks. She is brilliant at killing from the shadows and from behind, sneaking up to the target the killing them, sinking back into the shadows to repeat it if there are more than one people. She can disarm people if she gets the element of surprise. Basically, she has mastered martial arts and the more sneaky skills. She always carries a bottle of long lasting poison to dip her claws in, hand crafted. The poison makes the target paralysed for a minute and after that makes them extremely weak, though it takes a minute to work.

Disadvantages - She is clumsy with any weapons, whether it is daggers, swords, bows, axes, anything. She is also helpless when fighting someone without the element of surprise. Many have laughed at this because, due to being a Cathay-Raht, she is slightly stronger, but because she was never taught how to properly fight face to face she is slow and clumsy. She is brilliant at climbing and moving quickly, not many could beat her when she is running at full speed, but her legs are immensely weak and if kicked even gently will give out from underneath her. Sometimes when she is woken up she cannot stand up for ten minutes, and at the extreme an hour. If under extreme (mental) pressure her legs have been known to give way.

Challenges - She is constantly having to remind herself she is not Srassa anymore, and fighting the memories back. She had to change her voice, and whole identity. She is also constantly having to reapply the dye onto her fur to keep it grey.

Birthsign - The Lover, though she says it is The Thief as Srassa's birthsign is known to the people searching or her.

Religion - Azu worships all of the khajiit gods, and though they have punished her when she became lax they have also gifted her with many talents when she most needed them, and became more faithful.

Yay! I'll have to read it! Azu's backstory is taking much longer then I had anticipated, and will have to be in three parts! Well, not too long away. I've added to the backstory on this thread and the second part, the link to which is beneath the backstory here! :) Risvar's looking really good so far by the way!

A good bio and backstory I anticipate the further parts of it however the Senche sub species are quadrupedal and are used as mounts sometimes but other than that pretty good.

Thanks! Really, quadrupedal, didn't know that as it didn't say on any of the wiki's. Thanks, I'll have to change it ;)

I agree it's a cool character. The Senche are huge though. They weight on average the same as 20 Altmer! Might make it hard to be sneaky, but it's not impossible. It kind of gave me a laugh when it says one of her disadvantages is when something is stronger than her. It would have to be a senche-raht or a troll or something to be stronger than a senche. They are really strong, but also very rare I believe. Anyways, cool to see someone go out of the ordinary for a character, like you have here.

Uesp has all of the sub-types a Kahjiit can be and like Grape said they way a lot which doesn't really fit with her frail legs.

Haha, yeah, I will have to change it. To be honest the Senche was just a test, as I couldn't decide on what to make her. Hmm, actually, I might keep her as a Senche as an interesting twist, unless they are quadrupedal? Do you know? Hmm.... I'm going to update her disadvantages now! Thanks ;)

Yeah, I looked at the UESP wiki, it didn't say, I don't think... Also, the frail legs are because of her previously fractured spine and though they were healed they never fully recovered.

Ah, yes, I see. Hmm, now a day of deciding which race to choose... <.<

The lore says that it is tall as an Altmer and weighs as much as 20, I think that implies they are quadrupedal. They would probably be much taller if they were bipedal. You don't have to change the race, maybe just make her a cathay or cathay-raht. I think the latter would fit your character as you have described here a bit better than the senche.

I don't know, probably just a small town in the middle of the desert that was actually never there... Changed her and added to her disadvantages!

Oh well I was going to suggest Senchal because it's really corrupt. Seems like the type of place where one might get jumped like what happened to Srassa.
