So earlier this week I already posted an article on how you can start off creating that character you will click and stick with in ESO.

I found this back on my PC earlier tonight: a hundred questions for your character! This list is floating around several RP-forums, so I figured we should have it here!

This is something you should by no means do if you're 1) busy and 2) not too bothered about your character's most intricate details! I did this for my GW2 characters last year and even though it took me a fair while, it was a lot of fun to do.

Here are the questions:

100 Questions to Ask About Your Role-Playing Character

Part 1: The Basics

1. What is your full name?
2. Where and when were you born?
3. Who are/were your parents? (Know their names, occupations, personalities, etc.)
4. Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like?
5. Where do you live now, and with whom? Describe the place and the person/people.
6. What is your occupation?
7. Write a full physical description of yourself. You might want to consider factors such as: height, weight, race, hair and eye color, style of dress, and any tattoos, scars, or distinguishing marks.

94. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

98. What three words best describe your personality?
99. What three words would others probably use to describe you?
100. If you could, what advice would you, the player, give to your character? (You might even want to speak as if he or she were sitting right here in front of you, and use proper tone so he or she might heed your advice…)

Anyway, just something I thought I'd share in here. If you will actually bother with it, make sure to post it!

Edit: @Tecca agreed that I should sticky this ;)

1. Iogairn mac Eghin ua Mogrin
2. 2nd of First Seed, 2E 265 (I think)
3. Father: Eghin mac Padragh ua Mogrin- Introverted, calm, caring, perfectionist, diligent. Occupation-Reachman miner/rebel
Mother: Hala Fairhair- Extroverted, thoughtful, absent-minded. Occupation- Alchemist.
4. None known...
5. Nowhere in particular. Has a liking of Wetaman mine...
6. Makes his way as a bard
7. Height-5'11" Weight- 10 stone. The mixed parentage did not work to his disadvantage, however he isn't handsome, due to what he calls a 'mismatched face'. He has his mother's high cheeckbones, but his father's strong jawline. He took his heavy brow from his maternal grandfather, as well as his blue eyes.
8. He was very much a collier lad as a child until his mid-teens, where he was drafted into the bard school, which was very middle-upper class. Unfortunately, although he hated it there, it rubbed off quite a bit on him, and since he doesn't have a community to be involved with, and with his education, he doesn't feel like he can properly call himself working class.
9. He has an allergy to nobles...
10. Ambidextrous, but the education system was very strongly encouraging of using the right hand alone and so he uses his right hand more now.
11. Deep, but not booming. Melodic would be the closest, however he admits his singing voice isn't something to crave.
12. "Wy' aye'!" "Ha'wey" "Mara mother of Mercy!" "For the love of the Old Gods." (you may want to look the first two up. They're a cultural thing...)
13. (sounds a bit like Gollum in my head) anything that he thinks he might want later on, but never does. They are a dark and murky place. never to be entered...
14. He sighs and often raises a cynical eyebrow.

15. Ignorance is bliss.
16. When drinking? Beginning the glass. When not drinking? Playing in the pit village and the smell of coal coming from the workers. Weirdly, he can never remember their faces, only the smell.
17. From fourteen to eighteen was a formal education, however he had been taught before then to sing, fight and snark.
18. He despised his education. He mildly enjoyed the lessons, but he couldn't stand the other students, most who had come from wealthy families.
19. His father taught him a lot, as did most of the community in the village, which almost felt like a larger family.
20. On occasion his father talked about the rebellion. Some of his friends he described captivated Iogairn when he was a child, like the leader and the first spear, one was cunning and the other was a skilled fighter.
21. Even if Iogairn was a sadistic bastard his parents, and the rest of the village would have cared for him. But as he was witty and charming he was well liked by his parents. His other family he has never known. Yet...
22. A famous warrior. No wait, a great musician. Hang on, a famous explorer...
23. Making games and stories up.
24. Deceitful, but also compassion.
25. In and around the village he was popular. He was the scum of the earth to his classmates.
26. *cough* What? Is that really necessary? Next question please.
27. Oh for the love of...
28. Iogarin wouldn't like to say he was influenced by anyone. He's wrong of course. His father had a lot of impact on him, as did some others, including his friends and even one of the teachers at his school- the only one he liked.

I'm too tired to continue this now, but this is a really good idea Tris. I actually felt like I was fleshing out my character quite a bit. Although Iogairn an get quite nervous when talking about his private life...

Wow, that are many questions, but after a short overview I say, this is a good idea, the questions are all elaborated and necessary.

Also, I'm not sure I can answer all of these, being a High Elf, lol.

And I couldn't but notice that you mentioned movies. Tongue_out_laughing

By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.

Haha, glad you like it guys! @Iogairn, awesome to see you instantly started! @Idriar, I'm counting on soonTM ;)

@Octagonapus97, this template was not written by me ;) It's a general list of questions floating around several forums, haha. That's why the questions aren't really adjusted to the ESO-universe (hell, they weren't adjusted to my GW2 characters when I first got my hands on this at the time). Just adjust what you need to adjust and go crazy ;)

Edit: I used "adjust" a lot there.

((Took me an hour to do, but totally worth it. Makes you learn a lot about your own character.))
Part 1: The Basics

1. What is your full name? I am Lurgahk Gro-Vorguu.
2. Where and when were you born? I was born in Northpoint, located in High Rock on Morndas, 1st day of Last Seed 2E. ((I'd put the exact year, but I'm unfamiliar with the timeline for ESO.))
3. Who are/were your parents? (Know their names, occupations, personalities, etc.) My mother was named Lokra and my father, Ugrosba. My mother was the forge wife of the chieftan of her stronghold of Zaardin, and Ugrosba worked to simply aid her. Ugrosbo was a fierce, stubborn orc, even if he was not the chieftan, he would pursue whatever he wanted with determination. At least, that is what mother would tell me. She was the same way, however she was unhappy with her relationship with the chieftan, for she grew close to Ugrosbo in their time working at the forge and they eventually became lovers.
4. Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like? I once had a sister named Roshova, however I am unsure if she still remains in Vorguu. She was an optimistic one, that always encouraged mother that her thievery was not wrong, even if it went against the Code of Malacath. She was kind, but firm. If one were to irritate her, she would put them in their place without hesitation. I miss her to this day..
5. Where do you live now, and with whom? I guess you could say I live in Daggerfall..I often rent the beds there for several nights, although I do leave occasionally and camp out in the outskirts.
6. What is your occupation? *Cough* I..am very good with my hands, and valuables seem to simply fall into my pockets at times. However, I will do honest work occasionally, for those who are in need of help.
7. Write a full physical description of yourself. You might want to consider factors such as: height, weight, race, hair and eye color, style of dress, and any tattoos, scars, or distinguishing marks. I am an Orsimer, obviously, and as such I am the height of an Orsimer. I usually shave my head, but I have a short beard that ranges from ear to ear. I have brown eyes, and often wear leather armor, as it is light, but provides protection. I have a few scars and scrapes on the bottom right of my cheek, however some of it underlies my beard.
8. To which social class do you belong? I suppose you could say I am a hard working citzen.
9. Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses? Glowing mushrooms..The spores make me sneeze..
10. Are you right- or left-handed? I am right-handed.
11. What does your voice sound like? Aren't you listening to it now?
12. What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently? ..Hmph.
13. What do you have in your pockets? *Coughs* Gold. Next question.
14. Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics? I often enjoy the rush of adrenaline, and when my heart is racing, I usually place my hand over my chest, to see just how fast it is beating.

Part 2: Growing Up

15. How would you describe your childhood in general? Adventurous...
16. What is your earliest memory? I remember being in a tent with Roshova, listening to the growls of a bear, as my mother fought the beast off.
17. How much schooling have you had? Not much..I only know what my mother and sister have told me.
18. Did you enjoy school? Somewhat, mother made it mildly entertaining.
19. Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities? Some were just from watching my mother as a child, others I simply learned as time went on.
20. While growing up, did you have any role models? If so, describe them. No.
21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family? Fine. All we had was each other, so there was no reason for squabbles.
22. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? I never really though of myself of having a future. I think I simply just lived in the present.
23. As a child, what were your favorite activities? Wooden swordplay with my sister, and listening to the stories my mother would weave.
24. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display? That depends on what part of my childhood you are referring to..Before I left my mother, I was probably a happy, energetic child. Afterwards, I fell into a depression and remained solitary for years.
25. As a child, were you popular? Who were your friends, and what were they like? No, I wasn't "popular". There were no friends to be "popular" with. Hmph.
26. When and with whom was your first kiss? When I was 15 years of age, there was a younger girl in Vorguu that went by the name Troyka. A beautiful mer..
27. Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity? Troyka, the chieftan's daughter, days before she was sent off to marry a chieftan of another stronghold. Luckily we were never caught, and the whole event happened without consequences.
28. If you are a supernatural being (i.e. mage, werewolf, vampire), tell the story of how you became what you are or first learned of your own abilities. If you are just a normal human, describe any influences in your past that led you to do the things you do today. Of course I'm not supernatural. Who would want to be some half-beast, or blood-sucking madorc? I do what I do, because I enjoy the pounding of my heart.

Part 3: Past Influences

29. What do you consider the most important event of your life so far? The most important? *Sigh* I don't know..
30. Who has had the most influence on you? Mother.
31. What do you consider your greatest achievement? Do I have to have had a greatest achievment? I find all my achievments to have been of equal greatness so far.
32. What is your greatest regret? Letting Utoru talk Roshova and I into leaving mother for Vorguu.
33. What is the most evil thing you have ever done? I once killed a child..I was killing its parents..I didn't even know it was there. The poor thing charged me with a hammer, and I spun on my heels and slit the child's throat.
34. Do you have a criminal record of any kind? *Sighs* Obviously.
35. When was the time you were the most frightened? When I was exiled from Vorguu, I did not know what to do.
36. What is the most embarrassing thing ever to happen to you? Once.. when I was kissing Troyka, my tusks cut into her lip and she had to make up some story to tell her father. We didn't speak for a few days..
37. If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be, and why? I would never have left mother...
38. What is your best memory? Every time sister and I sat around a fire and listened to mother's tales.
39. What is your worst memory? Do I really need to explain this? You're a fool if you haven't already figured this out.

Part 4: Beliefs And Opinions

40. Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic? I would say I am fairly optimistic.
41. What is your greatest fear? Torture.
42. What are your religious views? I worship Malacath, although I believe his "Code" was just made up by some fanatic.
43. What are your political views? I want the Covenant to emerge victorious, for I feel as though the humans are the only ones who will give the Orsimer the rights they deserve.
44. What are your views on sex? If you have a chance, why not?
45. Are you able to kill? Under what circumstances do you find killing to be acceptable or unacceptable? Killing is almost always acceptable, unless its a child who has yet to live out their life.
46. In your opinion, what is the most evil thing any human being could do? Murder a newborn.
47. Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love? Absolutely...
48. What do you believe makes a successful life? True love..
49. How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings (i.e. do you hide your true self from others, and in what way)? I'd like to think I am pretty open, although I don't think you could forsee what I do by simply talking to me.
50. Do you have any biases or prejudices? I am not particularly a fan of the elves, the lizards, the cats, and some of the humans. As far as I am concerned, the Orsimer are the superior race, but I do not have to put salt in the wound.
51. Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances? Why do you refuse to do it? I would refuse to sleep with a corpse, that is for sure...Other than that..I am unsure.
52. Who or what, if anything, would you die for (or otherwise go to extremes for)? If I am to ever find a lover, I would give my life for her. The Covenant however, would be capable without me in the first place. I don't see any reason for me to die for them.

Part 5: Relationships With Others

53. In general, how do you treat others (politely, rudely, by keeping them at a distance, etc.)? Does your treatment of them change depending on how well you know them, and if so, how? If they are strangers, I regard them with caution. ((He is also a bit awkward, although he would never admit it.)) As I grow closer to these strangers, I grow more attatched and open up more.
54. Who is the most important person in your life, and why? Right now, myself.
55. Who is the person you respect the most, and why? Myself.
56. Who are your friends? Do you have a best friend? Describe these people. *Sigh* Must you ask this question? No.
57. Do you have a spouse or significant other? If so, describe this person. No.
58. Have you ever been in love? If so, describe what happened. I thought I was in love with Troyka, but as I said, she left Vorguu, and I am unsure of where she went.
59. What do you look for in a potential lover? A kind heart, but a stern attitude.
60. How close are you to your family? I do not know if my sister even lives, nor my mother.
61. Have you started your own family? If so, describe them. If not, do you want to? Why or why not? No, and I'd like to find a spouse, but no children. I fear that they would come in danger before they would turn the age of being able to protect themselves.
62. Who would you turn to if you were in desperate need of help? Malacath.
63. Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why? No.
64. If you died or went missing, who would miss you? Perhaps the bartender or maybe the local fence..But that would be because they lost a customer.
65. Who is the person you despise the most, and why? I currently do not have any grudges.
66. Do you tend to argue with people, or avoid conflict? I would think I usually avoid conflict.
67. Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations? No.
68. Do you like interacting with large groups of people? Why or why not? I'd rather speak with a large group than simply me and one other person.
69. Do you care what others think of you? Hardly.

Part 6: Likes And Dislikes

70. What is/are your favorite hobbies and pastimes? I enjoy reading, forging, and practicing his knife-work.
71. What is your most treasured possession? A ring that my sister gave me just before my exile.
72. What is your favorite color? Purple.
73. What is your favorite food? Fried Rabbit Haunches.
74. What, if anything, do you like to read? I enjoy reading tall tales, or adventures. Books on history usually bore me.
75. What is your idea of good entertainment (consider music, movies, art, etc.)? Oh, I don't know..Books?
76. Do you smoke, drink, or use drugs? If so, why? Do you want to quit? I drink, and I used to do skooma a few year back, but I'm past that now.
77. How do you spend a typical Saturday night? Sometimes I'll drink in the tavern, but usually I go on midnight sweeps.
78. What makes you laugh? Jokes that are actually funny.
79. What, if anything, shocks or offends you? Nothing really..
80. What would you do if you had insomnia and had to find something to do to amuse yourself? I'd either read or practice with my daggers against training dummies.
81. How do you deal with stress? Emerging myself into a book, where the stress disappears as I assume the role of another person.
82. Are you spontaneous, or do you always need to have a plan? I'm mainly spontaneous, which can be a bad thing when
83. What are your pet peeves? When people say that my kind are a race of mer..Hmph.

Part 7: Self Images And Etc.

84. Describe the routine of a normal day for you. How do you feel when this routine is disrupted? I often leave Daggerfall to go hunting the wilds. Sometimes I return to the tavern early, and sometimes I don't return at all and simply camp out in the woods.
85. What is your greatest strength as a person? My ability to..Gah..Next question.
86. What is your greatest weakness? And just why would I tell you that? NEXT QUESTION.
87. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? To not be angered as easily as I do, for anger has no place in the art of thievery.
88. Are you generally introverted or extroverted? What does that even mean?
89. Are you generally organized or messy? Messy?
90. Name three things you consider yourself to be very good at, and three things you consider yourself to be very bad at.

91. Do you like yourself? What kind of question is that? Yes, I do.
92. What are your reasons for being an adventurer (or doing the strange and heroic things that RPG characters do)? Are your real reasons for doing this different than the ones you tell people in public? (If so, detail both sets of reasons…) I do what I do, for the excitement of it all.
93. What goal do you most want to accomplish in your lifetime? Finding true love.
94. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? The same as I was five years ago.
95. If you could choose, how would you want to die? Defending a just cause, like maybe protecting a child from a bear, or saving a group of mudcrabs. I don't know. Bah...
96. If you knew you were going to die in 24 hours, name three things you would do in the time you had left. I would pray to Malacath that I wouldn't die in 24 hours, obviously.
97. What is the one thing for which you would most like to be remembered after your death? My abilities to remain hidden, or my kindness. Either one, really.
98. What three words best describe your personality? Quiet, Talkative, Curious.
99. What three words would others probably use to describe you? Strange, Mysterious, Awkward.
100. If you could, what advice would you, the player, give to your character? (You might even want to speak as if he or she were sitting right here in front of you, and use proper tone so he or she might heed your advice…) "Lurgahk, I will tell you to never give up on your goals, whatever they may be. For you do not know your future right now, but you will find it eventually. And yes, you will find that lover you've always searched for. "

Aldmeri Dominion (Altmer)
I'm finally finished. Let me know if I missed anything.

Part 7 is in another post. I wrote so much that I couldn't write more.

Oh, and feel I should warn you that it gets pretty suggestive in parts. Nothing too explicit, but just keep in mind that this was written by a 16-year-old left alone with his imagination for several hours. Laughing

Part 1: The Basics

1. What is your full name? I am Timerion the Enchanter, though there are some who call me "Tim".*
2. Where and when were you born? I was born on the 29th of Rain's Hand 2E 371 in Firsthold. As of 2E 582, I am 211 years old.
3. Who are/were your parents? My father, Enderon, was a blacksmith for the military. I still use the swords he made for me on my 18th birthday. He had a great sense of humor, especially for an Altmer. I miss him very much... He died at the of 256. My mother, Ixia, is currently a Priestess of Auri-El. Being skilled in Restoration -- she is known among frequent chapelgoers as "Ixia the Healer" -- she still survives to this day and is currently at least 400 years old -- I have lost count over the decades. She is aging, though. She is a loving person. I suppose that is why she, a priestess, married my father, a simple smith. They had me when he was only 45, with her being much older. Not that you could really tell the difference, mind you. Anyway, he injured himself in some sort of smithing accident and went to the temple for healing -- he never told me how he injured himself and Mother won't say a word -- and things picked up from there, if you know what I mean.
4. Do you have any siblings? I have one sister, Xena, who is three years my junior. I honestly have no idea where she is. She left the Isles a week before her 20th birthday to do Sithis-knows-what.
5. Where do you live now, and with whom? Most of the time, I live with my wife in her hut outside of Dune, Elsweyr, which I'll explain later. I try to visit my mother in F
6. What is your occupation? I'm really just an explorer... an adventurer. As my title implies, I am also an Enchanter. I offer enchanting services, but's not really anything professional. I also consider myself a scholar. I might do more of that when I retire from adventuring.
7. Write a full physical description of yourself. I am approximately seven feet tall. I have some muscle mass, due to my ocassional use of swords in combat... among other reasons. I have golden skin, white hair, and green eyes. I was born with my hair color; it's not from aging. I prefer fine clothing, but usually wear my mage robes when not relaxing at home. My knowledge of Alteration and Restoration magicks keeps me from getting scars. My father wasn't exactly the epitome of Aldmeri perfection, but I luckily inherited Mother's fine features. As for weight, I'm around 200 pounds, even though I eat quite a bit. I have a high metabolism... I'd rather not get into that, thank you.
8. To which social class do you belong? I suppose I am pretty high in the social hierarchy. My low-class father is dead, so he no longer influences my position. My mother, being a priestess, is of high social standing. That and me being a mage makes me a rather esteemed member of society. To be honest, I couldn't care less because I'm in Elsweyr most of the time.
9. Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses? Being an Altmer, I have a resistance to disease, though that apparently wasn't enough to stop me from contracting lycanthropy... er, uh... I mean... Oh, what's the use hiding it anymore? I'm a bleeding werewolf.
10. Are you right- or left-handed? Left-handed.
11. What does your voice sound like? I have a somewhat deep voice. The lycanthropy makes my voice a bit growly when I'm angry.
12. What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently? I tend to exclaim, "Ancestors' blood!" or, "By the blessed Bow!" when in shock.
13. What do you have in your pockets? Gold, potions, and an amulet of Auri-El given to me by my mother. It comforts me when I feel alone or upset when away from Summerset. I also have an Amulet of Khenarthi to remind me of my wife.
14. Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics? Does turning into a giant wolf-monster count as a quirk or annoying habit?

Part 2: Growing Up

15. How would you describe your childhood in general? It was nice, I suppose. I prefer not to dwell on the past, so I don't remember much of my childhood. My father was always a fun man to be around, though. I hardly remember my sister, but I don't recall getting into many fights.
16. What is your earliest memory? Hmm... I remember how my mother would tell me bedtime stories about the old Aldmeri heroes as I would drift off to sleep. *yawn*
17. How much schooling have you had? I have a very good education, being a mage and all. My mother taught me Restoration before I was even in school. My father taught me about smithing as well. I still train my skills on my own.
18. Did you enjoy school? I was a rather academically focused child. I enjoyed the lessons, but I hated the idiots.
19. Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities? Like I said, my knowledge of smithing and healing comes from my parents. I learned nearly everything else I know in school, though I experimented on my own quite often.
20. While growing up, did you have any role models? If so, describe them. I always admired scholars, mages, and heroes. Syrabane, for example -- he was all three, ha!
21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family? Quite well. As I've been saying, Father was always making us laugh. I don't think Xena and I faught much. Mother was always the kind and gentle soul she is today. I was never a particularly bad child, though frequently causing magickal explosions earned me a few scoldings.
22. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A scholar, a mage, and a hero, just like in Mother's stories.
23. As a child, what were your favorite activities? I loved trying out my magic on things and just studying everything.
24. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display? My father would refer to me as a "smart young lad" and my mother wasn't too different. My classmates, however, called me names, and I would shock them with spells. So I guess I'm a little touchy.
25. As a child, were you popular? Who were your friends, and what were they like? I had some friends. Most of my friends were like me. I'm not very social, though.
26. When and with whom was your first kiss? Hm... I believe her name was... Relyna? Yes, Relyna. We were together for about two years, but her parents ended up moving due to work-related issues. We were both about 17 when she left.
27. Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity? No, I lost my virginity to Relyna. She was genuinely heartbroken when she had to leave, as was I. We made love one last time the day before she left. I don't know where she is now.
28. If you are a supernatural being, tell the story of how you became what you are or first learned of your own abilities. As I said before, I'm a werewolf. I caught the disease from another werewolf. I thought it was a regular wolf at the time because it was dark and I didn't realize what had actually happened until it was too late. Fortunately, I've been able to suppress the condition with sheer willpower to the point where I can almost control it fully, though it's still not a good idea to get me too angry or excited.

Part 3: Past Influences

29. What do you consider the most important event of your life so far? Hm... I guess either my marriage or my infection. Both have changed how I live and both are secrets I have to keep.
30. Who has had the most influence on you? My mother, I suppose. She is my only surviving blood relative -- well, Xena could still be alive, but she's not here -- and she taught me a lot.
31. What do you consider your greatest achievement? Hm... getting married?
32. What is your greatest regret? I would say getting lycanthropy, but I didn't choose that. Plus, it has proven useful in dire situations. I would say not chasing Relyna, but then I wouldn't have met my current wife. I don't know.
33. What is the most evil thing you have ever done? I've killed innocent people while transformed. Not conciously, mind you. The beast form seems to have a mind of its own most of the time. It's like a dream, really. You don't usually realize what's happening until it's over.
34. Do you have a criminal record of any kind? No.
35. When was the time you were the most frightened? After killing my first victim as a werewolf... thinking that this was how the rest of my life was going to be... senseless killing....
36. What is the most embarrassing thing ever to happen to you? Exiting beast form naked and just before some people walked by. I don't think they noticed, but it was still embarassing.
37. If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be, and why? I would have Xena not leave.
38. What is your best memory? Probably losing my virginity.
39. What is your worst memory? Seeing the death I caused after my first werewolf transformation.

Part 4: Beliefs And Opinions

40. Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic? I tend to focus on the positives. You ever hear of any great pessimists?
41. What is your greatest fear? Spiders and my wife dying.
42. What are your religious views? I worship the Aldmeri pantheon of gods, mainly, though I still believe in the Nordic gods. They are Aedra too.
43. What are your political views? I'm an elven elitist and I think the Dominion should rule, though I think all races deserve their rights.
44. What are your views on sex? It shouldn't just be a casual thing. It should be between people who love each other.
45. Are you able to kill? Under what circumstances do you find killing to be acceptable or unacceptable? Murder of an innocent is wrong. Mercy killings are acceptable. Enemy soldiers should be spared if they surrender.
46. In your opinion, what is the most evil thing any being could do? Murder an innocent slowly and torturously.
47. Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love? Soul mates? Not really. True love? Absolutely.
48. What do you believe makes a successful life? Living life the way you see fit.
49. How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings? I hide the fact that I'm a werewolf and that I'm married to a Khajiit. Oh, I'm married to a Khajiit, by the way.
50. Do you have any biases or prejudices? I'm an Altmer. Of course I do. I think Mer are superior to Men.
51. Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances? Why do you refuse to do it? I am unsure.
52. Who or what, if anything, would you die for (or otherwise go to extremes for)? My wife and my mother.

Part 5: Relationships With Others

53. In general, how do you treat others? I'm not a particularly nice person. I especially hate idiots, but I can get along with intelligent people.
54. Who is the most important person in your life, and why? My wife, because... she's my wife. I love her.
55. Who is the person you respect the most, and why? I don't know... I treat everyone I hold in high esteem with respect.
56. Who are your friends? Do you have a best friend? Describe these people. I know people, but I don't really have close friends.
57. Do you have a spouse or significant other? My wife, Tsivana, is an Ohmes Khajiit. I met her in Elsweyr right after I was attacked by the werewolf. I was badly injured and unconcious and was unable to heal myself, so she took me into her hut outside of Dune and nursed me back to health. How in Oblivion such a small woman managed to move such a large man, I don't think I'll ever understand. I basically met my wife in the same way Father met his. Heh... like father, like son. Anyway, she's a very intelligent and crafty woman. She lives independent of almost anyone as a hunter. I've always kept her a secret. The only person in Summerset who knows is Mother. If anyone else knew, I'd be ostracized on the Isles.
58. Have you ever been in love? Relyna and I were certainly in love with each other. I am in love with Tsivana, obviously.
59. What do you look for in a potential lover? Beautiful and intelligent, which automatically disqualifies Orsimer and Argonians, ha!
60. How close are you to your family? My mother and my wife are the only family I have left. I love them both dearly.
61. Have you started your own family? No. For one thing, I'm not even sure it's biologically possible. Secondly, I can't have children and constantly travel at the same time. Tsivana would have her paws full. I can't deal with kids anyway. And it would be an impure bloodline.
62. Who would you turn to if you were in desperate need of help? My loved ones or the gods.
63. Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why? I would entrust Tsivana with my life. She knows I'd die for her, so I'm sure she'd do the same for me.
64. If you died or went missing, who would miss you? My mother and my wife.
65. Who is the person you despise the most, and why?
66. Do you tend to argue with people, or avoid conflict? I sometimes can't resist arguing.
67. Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations? Not really.
68. Do you like interacting with large groups of people? I'm not a people person.
69. Do you care what others think of you? I keep my wife a secret in order to maintain image. What do you think?

Part 6: Likes And Dislikes

70. What is/are your favorite hobbies and pastimes? Reading and exploring.
71. What is your most treasured possession? Mother's Auri-El amulet and Tsivana's Khenarthi amulet.
72. What is your favorite color? Blue and gold.
73. What is your favorite food? Tsivana's moonsugar cookies and Elsweyr fondue.
74. What, if anything, do you like to read? Anything. Except mysteries.
75. What is your idea of good entertainment? Reading or exploring. Tsivana is a skilled lute player, so I'll listen or sing along on ocassion...
76. Do you smoke, drink, or use drugs? I eat Tsivana's food that has moonsugar in it and I drink wine from time to time, but that's it.
77. How do you spend a typical Loredas night? When I'm in Firsthold with my mother, I usually read or talk with her. When I'm with Tsivana... we're a married couple alone in a hut in the desert... what do you think we do? Heheh....
78. What makes you laugh? The way Tsivana purrs when she's next to me always makes me chuckle.
79. What, if anything, shocks or offends you? Suffering.
80. What would you do if you had insomnia and had to find something to do to amuse yourself? Read or study my surroundings.
81. How do you deal with stress? Read, relax, or go blow up some defenseless animals. It's the only way, sometimes....
82. Are you spontaneous, or do you always need to have a plan? Altmer aren't good with change. We need plans.
83. What are your pet peeves? Idiocy.

By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

Great job so far, guys! Yeah, it takes a fair while to answer all of them, but it will teach you and others a lot about your character :D

First, for Selah Medanas.

Part 1: The Basics

1. What is your full name? Selah Medanas
2. Where and when were you born? 2E 312, on the 18th of Sun's Height, in the Telvanni Isles
3. Who are/were your parents? (Know their names, occupations, personalities, etc.) Gorath and Illul Medanas. They died decades ago, I am not sure any of their traits are currently relevant.
4. Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like? My only sister died young as well, unfortunately.
5. Where do you live now, and with whom? Describe the place and the person/people. I have a small house in the middle of Mournhold, as reasonably decorated (though certainly not gaudy) as I think fit. I live alone, although my apprentice, whoever they might be at the time, is usually there during the day. My current one is a young female Dunmer named Hlireni.
6. What is your occupation? My day is usually spent performing alchemical and magical research, and the fruits of that tend to be enough to live on comfortably.
7. Write a full physical description of yourself. I stand at slightly less than the average height for my kind, assuming I am standing upright of course, I do tend unfortunatley to bend over a bit thanks to my age. I am also somewhat on the thin side - I have heard "skeletal" used, although I would not go so far as to agree. My skin - wrinkled, naturally - is on the greyer side of blue, my eyes quite red, and my hair white with a bit of yellow to it. There aren't any specific marks to speak of, at least ones that would be visible to others.
8. To which social class do you belong? Firmly middle-class, it would seem. Perhaps on the higher end of that.
9. Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses? Age, of course! And a lack of musculature that comes from not needing to build it.
10. Are you right- or left-handed? Right by nature, though I make an effort to have as much use of both as possible.
11. What does your voice sound like? I cannot say I have ever heard it properly. If I had to venture a guess, from what I can tell of the altered sound that comes from hearing my own speech, it is slightly deeper than usual and quite raspy.
12. What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently? Whatever is most correct for what I am describing. I tend to prefer a certain paucity and exactness of speech.
13. What do you have in your pockets? Generally alchemical reagents and other magical aids. If I am specifically travelling to the market I bring coin with me, naturally.
14. Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics? I prefer not to allow my emotions to be so obviously available and exaggerated as others seem to insist upon.

Part 2: Growing Up

15. How would you describe your childhood in general? The first few years could be considered... standard. Upon the discovery of my magical talents I spent most of my time developing them under the tutelage of a conjurer of House Telvanni.
16. What is your earliest memory? Most of my memories of childhood are quite blurred by my age, although I quite remember from my fifth year a riddle game (quite a silly one in retrospect) I played with my sister.
17. How much schooling have you had? Exstensive. I could say that I have been learning my entire life, and it would be quite accurate to say so, but my time as an actual student under others lasted until I was approximately thirty-five.
18. Did you enjoy school? More or less. My tutors were stern, but that is exactly what I would hope, and their insistence on me learning by my own initiative, while potentially overwhelming at first, did very well to prepare me for life in general.
19. Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities? In my studies and wanderings after my formal education finished. I cannot say more, they are secrets I would do well to keep as such.
20. While growing up, did you have any role models? If so, describe them. I happened to have moderately extensive contact with one of the Magisters during my formative years, and her skill in developing power and authority is something I still admire to this day.
21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family? Very well. My parents had little reason to need to provide me with discipline, and the way I took to my studies seems to have pleased them considerbly. My sister, frivolous as she could be, was a good mer regardless, and I do remember her fondly.
22. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A Magister of House Telvanni, naturally. I am still working to that goal.
23. As a child, what were your favorite activities? Reading, exploration and painting, generally. I never showed much talent at the latter, though, and I have not done so in quite some time.
24. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display? I would not say that I showed any. My preference to maintain a calm demeanor seems to be one that comes quite naturally to me. I did tend to be slightly... looser about it, however.
25. As a child, were you popular? Who were your friends, and what were they like? I always had quite a few, and I made acquaintances faster than one might expect, although the actual circle of my friends did tend to change moderately often as the circumstances of my life did. In any case, I believe all of them have long since passed.
26. When and with whom was your first kiss? To be honest, I don't remember his name. He was a fellow student, that I do remember.
27. Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity? I believe it was the same person, actually.
28. If you are a supernatural being, tell the story of how you became what you are or first learned of your own abilities. That story I do remember very specifically. I was just short of twenty years of age, in the year 331. A representative of Great House Telvanni was looking through our area for those with potential in the magical arts, and my sister and I were among those tested. She showed some small potential, but mine was apparently quite large; the spells I was asked to cast came forth remarkably smoothly. I was immediately marked for further education in the magical arts.

Part 3: Past Influences

29. What do you consider the most important event of your life so far? The story I mentioned above, of how my magical ability was properly discovered.
30. Who has had the most influence on you? Most likely the magister I mentioned earlier. My parents' support of my studies may have been this, though.
31. What do you consider your greatest achievement? I prefer not to boast, but you seem to insist. During a time I spent travelling, I came across a village that had been forced under a cult devoted to Prince Mehrunes Dagon. Naturally, such an abomination cannot be allowed to remain in Tamriel and with the aid of those so oppressed, and by killing their leader in a magical duel, I succeeded in killing most of them and scattering the rest.
32. What is your greatest regret? That I have not risen very high despite the work I have done over my nearly three centuries of life.
33. What is the most evil thing you have ever done? That is... a very unusual thing to ask. Some would say it is the times I have used my power to "bully" others for influence or physical gain, although as far as I am concerned I have earned that right by working to gain power in the first place.
34. Do you have a criminal record of any kind? I do not. Criminal acts tend to cause more loss than gain in the long run.
35. When was the time you were the most frightened? Frightened... I do not feel that very often. Perhaps when I was first taken from my home to begin my studies, the first time I was in an unfamiliar place. Unfamiliar places tend to bother me in general even now, to be honest.
36. What is the most embarrassing thing ever to happen to you? I find it interesting that you believe I would answer this question. But I will. During my youth, attempting to explore sexuality (this was before I determined it wasn't for me, of course), I could be somewhat too... direct and forceful about it. I remember getting an angry response from some girl I was attempting to do said explorations with. That is probably as close to embarrassment as I have experienced.
37. If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be, and why? There are a few small missed opportunities in finding magical abilities that I realize in retrospect I should have taken. In general I believe my life has gone well, however.
38. What is your best memory? The day of my sister's wedding. Seeing her so happy, and rightly so, was quite affecting.
39. What is your worst memory? Learning that my sister had died, particularly since it had come so soon after the previous.

Part 4: Beliefs And Opinions

40. Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic? I would say the former. I strongly believe in the ability of a person to end up well if they have made a proper effort at doing so.
41. What is your greatest fear? I suppose that would be the knowledge of my mortality, especially at my age. Ideally I can find some way to prevent that.
42. What are your religious views? Of course I worship the Tribunal, and follow the precepts of the Temple.
43. What are your political views? I believe that those who have gained authority should be allowed to wield it without interference from those who have shown they do not have the will or mental strength to gain such a position themselves. If they wished to have a say in the running of the state they should have worked to put themselves into a position to do so rather than asking for it to be handed to them without effort.
44. What are your views on sex? I have tried it a few times. I don't understand what everyone seems to see in it.
45. Are you able to kill? Under what circumstances do you find killing to be acceptable or unacceptable? It is not a decision that should be made lightly, but it often has to be made, and the refusal to kill when it must be done is a failure of will, and I have no respect for it.
46. In your opinion, what is the most evil thing any human being could do? To stand by and allow others to act in a generally destructive manner when they have the power to prevent it. Naturally, I suppose that might apply to those who destroy for no reason as well.
47. Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love? I have no reason to think not. Some people seem to be more or less compatible, and it stands to reason that some specific pair may be so much so as to be perfect for each other.
48. What do you believe makes a successful life? Working hard to achieve one's goals, and setting high goals for one's self to achieve.
49. How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings? None of my feelings are usually relevant to the situation at hand. I usually see no need to display them.
50. Do you have any biases or prejudices? I have generally found moral and mental weakness to be stronger in humans and the beast races than elsewhere. It is not a universal truth, naturally, but it is considerably more common with them than Dunmer.
51. Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances? Why do you refuse to do it? I could never consider betraying my people or otherwise dishonoring them.
52. Who or what, if anything, would you die for (or otherwise go to extremes for)? Only for myself or for the good of the Tribunal.

Part 5: Relationships With Others

53. In general, how do you treat others? I treat them with precisely as much respect and trust as their actions have earned. I tend to give people some slight allowance if I do not yet know them; enough to allow them a chance to prove themselves, though of course not enough to open myself to attack.
54. Who is the most important person in your life, and why? I cannot say I am one to choose favorites in such a way. Whoever is my assistant at the time tends to be quite important, of course, if nobody else.
55. Who is the person you respect the most, and why? I would have to spread that among the three Gods of our people, for they have used their great power to aid our prosperity and defense very well.
56. Who are your friends? Do you have a best friend? Describe these people. I have a good few, usually of advanced age like myself. They are mostly mages, though a couple are warriors and a few have less glamorous occupations.
57. Do you have a spouse or significant other? If so, describe this person. I do not.
58. Have you ever been in love? If so, describe what happened. No. I have tried, but it has never come to me.
59. What do you look for in a potential lover? I am not interested in that.
60. How close are you to your family? I make absolutely sure to provide their spirits with considerably more than the necessary devotion. They earned it in their lives.
61. Have you started your own family? If so, describe them. If not, do you want to? Why or why not? I have no interest in it. I would prefer to choose those I am close to rather than have it placed on my by chance.
62. Who would you turn to if you were in desperate need of help? I would generally seek the nearest person I have reason to believe I can trust.
63. Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why? I prefer to protect myself. If I am not strong enough to do so I do not deserve to succeed.
64. If you died or went missing, who would miss you? Most of my friends likely would, I should hope. I will not be so naive as to think they wouldn't get over it fairly quickly, though.
65. Who is the person you despise the most, and why? On my travels I once came across a snivelling rat of an outlaw hiding in the hills of northeast Cyrodiil. He was easy to scare off once he learned I had some power, but it became obvious that he had decided to indulge his cowardice by trying to find the weakest around to take from. His attempts rarely succeded, but the fact that he did so rather than attempt to build real ability is something I find utterly reprehensible.
66. Do you tend to argue with people, or avoid conflict? The latter. General conflict rarely does anyone good, and if someone is not currently causing me trouble I rarely hold a grudge.
67. Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations? If at all possible.
68. Do you like interacting with large groups of people? Why or why not? It depends on the situation. Most of the time they tend to be more of a bother than a help, and I prefer more direct personal conversation, but there can be much to be learned from the general crowd.
69. Do you care what others think of you? I naturally prefer others to think well of me, but I will not misrepresent myself to bring that about. If others think so poorly of me, it is likely their own failings that cause them to do so.

Part 6: Likes And Dislikes

70. What is/are your favorite hobbies and pastimes? I am quite the devotee of card games, as well as more serious cartomancy. In my spare time, when I have no experiments to perform, I might write on the subjects I am studying. I am proud to say that some of those have been published, though they tend to be forgotten quickly.
71. What is your most treasured possession? Upon learning she was dying my sister left me an emerald amulet, that I keep in a very safe place.
72. What is your favorite color? That strikes me as an exceptionally frivolous thing to have a favorite of.
73. What is your favorite food? I have been taught a very good recipe for a cake that includes comberries, and I particularly enjoy making that for special occassions.
74. What, if anything, do you like to read? Technical works, for the most part.
75. What is your idea of good entertainment (consider music, movies, art, etc.)?
76. Do you smoke, drink, or use drugs? If so, why? Do you want to quit? I partake in alcohol occasionally, but not any other such things. I certainly hope I would be able to end such a habit if I began it!
77. How do you spend a typical Saturday night? You mean Loredas, I believe? There is an old soldier at the end of my street who organizes card games every Loredas, and I usually attend.
78. What makes you laugh? Very little
79. What, if anything, shocks or offends you? Equally as little.
80. What would you do if you had insomnia and had to find something to do to amuse yourself? I thankfully do not suffer from that very often, but if it does happen I merely spend the time in contemplation.
81. How do you deal with stress? I find it tends to disperse on its own if I allow it to.
82. Are you spontaneous, or do you always need to have a plan? The latter. Plans, in my experience, always bring about a far better result.
83. What are your pet peeves? Cowardice and pettiness.

Part 7: Self Images And Etc.

84. Describe the routine of a normal day for you. How do you feel when this routine is disrupted? Upon awakening, at six, I prepare wickwheat pastries for myself and my assistant, who tends to arrive about an hour after. Between that and eleven we prepare the equipment and perform some preliminary activities, and if possible begin the experiments or production I have scheduled for that day. Between eleven and half to twelve we eat lunch. From then to five the main body of our daily work occurs. Depending on the apprentice - Hlireni, for instance, is quite sociable I have found - they may stay for a bit of time after to catch up on our separative lives. Once said apprentice leaves, if we have not decided to both attend some activity that evening, I eat supper. I usually have already decided on some evening activity, which varies day to day. I will then go to sleep at precisely nine-thirty if possible. If my daily work schedule is interrupted, for instance if an experiment requires my apprentice and they are not available, it can be difficult to find something to do in its place.
85. What is your greatest strength as a person? I like to belive that I have that strength of will and devotion to my goals that too many others lack.
86. What is your greatest weakness? I seem to miss opportunities a bit more often than I like, often due to being distracted by other obligations or preferences.
87. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I perhaps could use a little more spontaneity, as my tendency to be set in my habits can have its problems.
88. Are you generally introverted or extroverted? The difference between the proper meaning of those words and their usual understanding makes it difficult to say. I do tend to enjoy spending time with others whenever I can, even if I am not as skilled at it as I would like to be. But by the technical definition of the term, finding gratification from myself, I would properly be an introvert.
89. Are you generally organized or messy? I have found those who are messier tend to be less upstanding people and therefore I am quite glad to be very organized.
90. Name three things you consider yourself to be very good at, and three things you consider yourself to be very bad at. I am highly skilled at alchemy, spellcraft and technical writing. I seem to have considerable difficulty with physical exertion, persuasion and, sadly, painting.
91. Do you like yourself? Naturally.
92. What are your reasons for being an adventurer? Are your real reasons for doing this different than the ones you tell people in public? Both are very much the same. I adventure to find new possible sources of power and knowledge, and ensure that the proper order of the world is preserved.
93. What goal do you most want to accomplish in your lifetime? To become a magister of House Telvanni, and thereupon to keep said position and lifetime going as long as possible.
94. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Likely in a similar place as now, though hopefully with some advancement in my goals.
95. If you could choose, how would you want to die? Not at all, or, at least, of old age some centuries from now.
96. If you knew you were going to die in 24 hours, name three things you would do in the time you had left. I would ensure my inheritance is in order, finish or leave in as finishable a state as possible any lines of inquiry I was working on, and, unless I had some way of preventing the event immediately available, calmly and patiently await the end.
97. What is the one thing for which you would most like to be remembered after your death? Assuming that proves to be necessary, I should hope I will be remembered as devoted to my people and my gods.
98. What three words best describe your personality? Calm, upstanding and deliberate.
99. What three words would others probably use to describe you? Cold, uptight and boring, at least to many.
100. If you could, what advice would you, the player, give to your character? (You might even want to speak as if he or she were sitting right here in front of you, and use proper tone so he or she might heed your advice…) I... don't think she takes advice that doesn't agree with her own world view very well in general, no matter how it's given. <_< I could try to tell her that allowing her emotions to come through more often can be perfectly well to her benefit, and she might accept that, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to do Fatimah soon. She should have more interesting answers than these. :p


Count only the happy hours.

27. Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity? I'm not known for my restraint, whelp.

Part 5: Relationships With Others

53. In general, how do you treat others (politely, rudely, by keeping them at a distance, etc.)? Does your treatment of them change depending on how well you know them, and if so, how? I treat them as they deserve to be treated. This does not change simply because I know them more.

Aldmeri Dominion (Altmer)
Here´s the first one, for Andarcya.

Part 1: The Basics

1. What is your full name? 141 RK 91. (A D A K I A, pronounced Andarcya)
2. Where and when were you born? I was born in Cloudrest, central most city on Alinor, the 24th of Mid Year 379 2E.
3. Who are/were your parents? (Know their names, occupations, personalities, etc.) My father´s name is Ruwenmar, and he is a man of high arts, crafting weapon and paintings alike. But... without me noticing he fell to insanity and heresy and was therefor banned from the Sumurset Isles. My mother died giving birth to me. My father never told me anything about her. Not even her name. For the two hundred years he had been my guardian he never shared his life nor bed with another woman.
4. Do you have any siblings? I was my father´s firstborn. As he never had a woman after my mother, I have no brothers nor sisters.
5. Where do you live now, and with whom? I live within the boundaries of the Dominion´s influence. Sometimes I venture into enemy territory, though. But actually my seat of residence is in Alinor, the city and also the isle. I haven´t been there for a few years, I´ve been traveling for only a short time now. Unfortunately and for reason beyond my comprehension I stick together with a greedy Khajiit individual named S'Girr, who is always intoxicated, and a short and impertinent Bosmer named Nuunroth, who actually believes to be the son of Agamanus.
6. What is your occupation? I´ve served half a century in what you could call the standing army of Alinor. I´m a trained warrioress. But I´m also into philosophical debates and learned some skills of crafting from my father.
7. Write a full physical description of yourself. You might want to consider factors such as: height, weight, race, hair and eye color, style of dress, and any tattoos, scars, or distinguishing marks. I am 6´ 6´´ tall, not as tall as Altmerian average. The question of my weight I consider as unapologetic, but it´s 200 pounds. My skin is of pale gold, my hair is gold-blonde, nearly white. I´m considered perfect in every aspect of the Aldmeri standart: my face did not even need to be flesh molded. My only flaw... are my eyes. The irides are of a glowing orange and too big, nearly covering all of the visible eye ball. My pupils are no spots, they are wavy lines crossing the irides horizontally. Usually I wear a heavy Elven Armor of gold and solidified sunlight. I have no scars and I won´t mutilate my perfect body with tatoos. As my eyes are so... eye catching flaws I try to keep everything else as perfect as possible.
8. To which social class do you belong? I belong to the warrior caste on Alinor. In the Dominion I hold the rank of a lance corporal, leading my two privates, S'Girr and Nuunroth.
9. Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses? As a Altmer I suffer none of the low lived mortals`... I mean men's diseases. But... sometimes I have a short temper, actually raging myself into a fit of rage. I would call that a weakness.
10. Are you right- or left-handed? I am right-handed.
11. What does your voice sound like? My voice sounds like liquid gold flowing from Magnus onto fields full of heretics, burning and burrying their bodies, leaving nothing but a perfect golden plain in your mind.
12. What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently? Materialism. It´s one of the worst curse words known to Altmer I feel guilty whenever I use it. Other things? Let me think...

"You dare!?"

"How dare you!?"

"My patience is reserved only for the ones who don´t know it better, not for the ones who should know it bette!"

"Bloody bastard."

Yeah, that´s it.
13. What do you have in your pockets? My golden credit card.
14. Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics? I already mentioned my fits of anger... But well, for an Altmer I´m pretty tolerant...

Part 2: Growing Up

15. How would you describe your childhood in general? My childhood was nothing but a running of gauntlets. I was teased by my peers for my strange eyes, my only flaw. They called me... a Golden Saint...
16. What is your earliest memory? My first strong memory is a day when I was like 40 or 50 years old. I was together with my father, walking on the spiral streets around Cloudrest, connecting the different layers of the town. But suddenly the sky... turned red. I won´t ever forget what happened. Fire fell from the sky. Rays of light, blinding my eyes, stone was cut in halves, bursting into flames. It was the day when civil war reached Cloudrest. I don´t know what they fought for. I just remember the chaos...
17. How much schooling have you had? 40 years basic education. 40 years training of the basic fighting skills. 40 years of training with the sword. 60 years of regal training of etiquette. 60 years of basic magical training. But I never really ended learning.
18. Did you enjoy school? It would have been better without my peers... but getting the best marks was my way of mocking about them.
19. Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities? Everything I learned in the schools of Alinor and the crafting I learned from my father. I only spent five years in Tamriel. I wouldn´t say that I was already able to actually learn something here.
20. While growing up, did you have any role models? If so, describe them. Every good Altmer should try to be like the God-Ancestors. I consider such as hubris. I have no rolemodels.
21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family? Well. My father was my whole family. The only person I really could trust. The more I´m shocked about the heresy he wrote behind my back...
22. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a warrioress from the day I saw Cloudrest burning. The civil war made my father and me even flee to Alinor. I was young and naive and wanted to prevent such chaos to take place a second time.
23. As a child, what were your favorite activities? Training, learning, singing in the choir.
24. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display? I was the outsider. Always. I sticked to my books and training swords, not to my peers. I didn´t need any friends.
25. As a child, were you popular? Who were your friends, and what were they like? I was a popular aim of mockery and bullying. I had no friends.
26. When and with whom was your first kiss? The only person to ever kiss me was my father.
27. Are you a virgin? If not, when and with whom did you lose your virginity? *blushes* You suggest a girl of two hundred years to have mated already? I´m not only too young, I´m also bear the massive flaw of my eyes right in my face. I´m afraid, I´m not seen as proper breeding material...
28. If you are a supernatural being (i.e. mage, werewolf, vampire), tell the story of how you became what you are or first learned of your own abilities. If you are just a normal human, describe any influences in your past that led you to do the things you do today. I use magic in combat, mostly flame based destruction. I learned in magic class. Where else?

Part 3: Past Influences

29. What do you consider the most important event of your life so far? Well... firstly the traumatic event of seeing my home town burning, suffering from the chaos of a civil and my entire childhood of teasing... those led to my wish of becoming a warrioress and as perfect in every area important to Altmer society as possible.
30. Who has had the most influence on you? My father. His banishment made me leave Sumurset in order to find him on the continent. Also I´m afraid his covered insanity has spoiled my state of mind aswell... but I guess I´m sane.
31. What do you consider your greatest achievement? I don´t fall into a fit of rage only because a low life mortal... I mean somebody mistakes me for a Golden Saint anymore.
32. What is your greatest regret? I should have been able to tell what my father was planning. I could have stopped him from spreading his heresy if I only knew it before... I could have helped him.... but now he is banned.
33. What is the most evil thing you have ever done? I never did anything evil. It´s an odd to my nature. To the Altmer nature. One could think us or me cruel... but actually we just want to undo this realm, for the sake of everyone´s soul!
34. Do you have a criminal record of any kind? I once attacked an Official in the Palace of Justice. I was free to leave the place... but I´m not sure whether my attack was considered as crime. I left the Isle before I could find out.
35. When was the time you were the most frightened? I was terryfied when I was traveling to the continent. Not only because the ship got into a storm... I was afraid of the strange...
36. What is the most embarrassing thing ever to happen to you? This impertinent Nuunroth... He tried to kiss me once in public! Of course I broke his clavicle. You would not believe how embarrassing this was, being a victim of sexual harrasement! I was explained this was common Bosmer habit. Some festival rite. But I still believe this mer was after something else...
37. If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be, and why? I would have found out about my father´s plans by time, and stop him from spreading his insanity and heresy.
38. What is your best memory? My father giving my self-crafted jewelry as present as reward for my excellent marks
39. What is your worst memory? Burning Cloudrest... my enitre childhood?

Part 4: Beliefs And Opinions

40. Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic? Well. In the long run I will achieve all my goals. So, yes, I´m an optimist.
41. What is your greatest fear? Well, once it was being called a Golden Saint. But now it´s finding my father dead, finding out that I´m too late, that he was already killed be the countless insanities and nastities Tam-Riel is bearing.
42. What are your religious views? I believe in the Divine, in Auri-El and all the souls back to Anu, in the God-Ancestors and in the restoration of the era of the dawn. Though, I don´t think that I will live lond enough to see its restoration.
43. What are your political views? Queen Ayrenn is a highly questioned leader. I don´t question her legitimazation, I only question her methods. She has to find a way to make the whole Altmer nation loyal to her.
44. What are your views on sex? Through selective breeding we shall restore our pure Elven blood, the blood of our God-Ancestors. Only the most perfect individuals should be allowed to breed – like me, though others don´t think so – and even then the result is not always fulfilling the stadarts.
45. Are you able to kill? Under what circumstances do you find killing to be acceptable or unacceptable? Ending a low life men´s or fallen mer´s life is an act of mercy in my eyes... especially when the low life men or mer is daring to figth against my cause. But I feel no joy in killing. It only adds another soul to the ones to be reborn, actually starting the circle of suffer, life and death once more.
46. In your opinion, what is the most evil thing any human being could do? Accepting the suffer of life, not even trying to escape the pointlessness of material existence.
47. Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love? Love? Love is about breeding.
48. What do you believe makes a successful life? Devouting your life to helping to restore the era of the dawn.
49. How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings (i.e. do you hide your true self from others, and in what way)? I tell people when they make me angry, I´m considered blunt for an Altmer. But sharing my dreams, hopes and fears? I´m no wimpy Breton or Nord bard!

But actually... when I´m pushed to the point in certain discussions, I become very personal about my reasons.
50. Do you have any biases or prejudices? Prejudices? No. I don´t give much on rumor based biases and prejudices. I only believe in facts. And fact is that fallen mer and primitive men are raging freely over Tamriel, lorkhanic and daedric forces alike.
51. Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances? Why do you refuse to do it? I´m vegetarian, I refuse to eat meat. A problem when you are in Valenwood... Well, why do I eat no meat? Animals are impure beings, stupid and filthy. It´s awkward enough that I have to eat things that derive from such a chaotic plane like this... so I decided to atleast only eat things full of order. Plants grow where you plant them. They don´t run around and get dirty. The time that they are ripe for harvest can be planned. There are many advanteges plants have over animals.
52. Who or what, if anything, would you die for (or otherwise go to extremes for)? I – oddly eough – rate the life of my father over my own. Beside I would only die for the cause of restering the era of the dawn, for my death holds the danger to be reborn... as human...

Part 5: Relationships With Others

53. In general, how do you treat others (politely, rudely, by keeping them at a distance, etc.)? Does your treatment of them change depending on how well you know them, and if so, how? I treat everybody with the respect that is common etiquette. But Actually I have grown tired of all those idiots mistaking me for a Golden Saint... And I get mad at people violating law and order. Especially the ones, who should know better.
54. Who is the most important person in your life, and why? My father... he was insane... and my guardian... the odd relationship to my father must derive from my upbringing.
55. Who is the person you respect the most, and why? Persons who represent law and order. If I wouldn´t respect, it was like disrespecting law and order!
56. Who are your friends? Do you have a best friend? Describe these people. ... I would describe anyone as my friends...
57. Do you have a spouse or significant other? If so, describe this person. No.
58. Have you ever been in love? If so, describe what happened. There never had been a boy in my life who did not tease me, whom I therefor hated, or was beneath me.
59. What do you look for in a potential lover? Flawless appeareance, listed ancestry all the way back to the dawn.
60. How close are you to your family? I want to be close to my father...
61. Have you started your own family? If so, describe them. If not, do you want to? Why or why not? If one breeding was successful, I wouldn´t know what to do with the child... I´m a warrioress, here on the battlefield I´m finally useful, fending of the Lorkhanic threats from our sages, our mages researching a way to undo this realm... I don´t know whether I would be as useful as mother.
62. Who would you turn to if you were in desperate need of help? I would turn to the responsible official.
63. Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why? No one can protect me else than myself.
64. If you died or went missing, who would miss you? My father? Maybe?
65. Who is the person you despise the most, and why? The official who sticked me together with S'Girr and Nuunroth
66. Do you tend to argue with people, or avoid conflict? If someone is wrong I will tell him. If he talks back, I talk back. For if he talks back he is still wrong.
67. Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations? In social situations? No.
68. Do you like interacting with large groups of people? Why or why not? I´m used to give philosophical lectures in front of large audience. Also debates with many people.
69. Do you care what others think of you? I respect tother religious views, but if somebody is thinking wrong about my believes this makes my angry. But else? The most think me cruel, what I´m not. I don´t care if somebody mistakes my actions, but my believes... that´s something else.

Part 6: Likes And Dislikes

70. What is/are your favorite hobbies and pastimes? I`m into philosophical debates, I sing at the choir, I like literature and theatre. Beside that I´m training my combat skills.
71. What is your most treasured possession? Twin Doves, a sword crafted by my father. The present for my two hundredth birhtday.
72. What is your favorite color? Gold.
73. What is your favorite food? Rice with ananas sauce, boiled apples and fresh asparagus.
74. What, if anything, do you like to read? Periodicals from Alinor.
75. What is your idea of good entertainment (consider music, movies, art, etc.)? Theatre, cantates for the Divine.
76. Do you smoke, drink, or use drugs? If so, why? Do you want to quit? Drugs are pure evil, I won´t ever be found using such.
77. How do you spend a typical Saturday night? Theatre, but on the continent, especially in battles... training.
78. What makes you laugh? I don´t usually laugh. But playing with mortals... I mean human is funny sometimes.
79. What, if anything, shocks or offends you? To be called a Golden Saint. So many memories of so many years of mockery...
80. What would you do if you had insomnia and had to find something to do to amuse yourself? I would look up to the stars and wonder how the Magna-re could escape this mad and weird realm.
81. How do you deal with stress? I hit something with my sword.
82. Are you spontaneous, or do you always need to have a plan? My life is well ordered, even now. I try to avoid surprises.
83. What are your pet peeves? I love to get into a good discussion, especially when it´s about fighting somebody who actually claims the Aldmeri Standart to be flawed. I love to hate such people.

Part 7: Self Images And Etc.

84. Describe the routine of a normal day for you. How do you feel when this routine is disrupted? I follow orders. I hate disorder. I have a tight schedule everyday. Culture... combat... war... searching for my father... all in a days work. Disrupting my routine is delaying all my work... well I have roughly 800 years left. Still I don´t become younger.
85. What is your greatest strength as a person? Integrity.
86. What is your greatest weakness? ... short temper?
87. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My eyes. They have ruined my entire life...
88. Are you generally introverted or extroverted? Maybe I would be more extroverted if I wasn´t so flawed... but I´m searchign philosophical debates. For there only my opinion and not my appeareance counts.
89. Are you generally organized or messy? Organized.
90. Name three things you consider yourself to be very good at, and three things you consider yourself to be very bad at. Good things: Fighting. Debating. Holding up law and order. Bad things: Accepting defeat. Coping with living in such a flaed realm. I "don´t play well with others".
91. Do you like yourself? There are flaws in my person which I cannot extinct... But I have to live with myself everyday. I would be insane to not atleast like myself a little.
92. What are your reasons for being an adventurer (or doing the strange and heroic things that RPG characters do)? Are your real reasons for doing this different than the ones you tell people in public? (If so, detail both sets of reasons…) I´m only here to search for my father. Of course, not everybody has to know about my father´s heresy and insanity... Officially I´m a soldier of the Dominion anyway.
93. What goal do you most want to accomplish in your lifetime? Find my father.
94. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Still searching my father. But in a higher rank of the army, perhaps.
95. If you could choose, how would you want to die? How? I wouldn´t want to be forced back into the circle of rebirth. The change of being born a inferiour human or a beast is too high. I would want my sould ot be soultrapped, stored away to await the restoration of the dawn. The way I die? I don´t care. Life is overrated anyway, even my own.
96. If you knew you were going to die in 24 hours, name three things you would do in the time you had left. Pray to the God-Ancestors, make sure nobody will ever wield Twin Doves and make sure that my soul is trapped in the moment of my death.
97. What is the one thing for which you would most like to be remembered after your death? For my efforts for the cause of restoring the era of the dawn.
98. What three words best describe your personality? Superiority. Ordered. Gold.
99. What three words would others probably use to describe you? Obstinate. Flaw. Gold.
100. If you could, what advice would you, the player, give to your character? (You might even want to speak as if he or she were sitting right here in front of you, and use proper tone so he or she might heed your advice…) "Well, Andarcya. I could tell what adventurers lie before you. But that would spoiler everything. So I will just give you some general advices:

Never give up to search your father. Even if you won´t find him in your current realm...

Prepare for the unexpected. Tamriel holds chaos and disorder for you, you have to prepare for your plans being overthrown by reality.

And always stay Andarcya, no matter what the others say!"

Who controls the Septim crown?
Who keeps the Allesian Heresy down?
We do, we do

Who knocked Yokuda off the maps?
Who keeps the Dwemer under wraps?
We do, we do
