Name - Do'Shanji
Title - The Bulwark
Sex - Male
Age - 34
Occupation - Warrior, Mercenary
Faction - Elsweyr, Aldmeri Dominion

Appearance - Standing in at 6'7" and weighing 245 lbs. The Cathay towers over most other Khajiit. His fur is ashen grey and his body is lined with dark stripes. His face looks like it has been carved of stone and the features are well defined. There are also several scars that run across his face from previous battles.

Equipment - Royal Elsweyrian armor, hand-crafted by the Mane's personal armor-smith. It is heavier than mail, but lighter than plate. It offers protection that is just below that of an orcish cuirass, for not even the Mane's armor-smiths can duplicate the work of orcish smiths.
A silver long sword, gifted to him by the Archmage, Alator. The tale of how he earned that blade has been told elsewhere and I will not take the time to retell it here. (The Lost Secret RP)
The Shield of Orcrest. Given to members of the Orcrest guard, Do'Shanji has bore this shield on his back since the day it was presented to him. It was with this shield that he plowed through ranks of Legion soldiers in the battlefields outside of Dune. It bears the insignia of Orcrest on the front.

Personality - Do'Shanji keeps to himself mostly, he is a thinker and does not act on impulse. He does not care to interfere in others business, unless it conflicts with his own. In which case he is very tenacious and is not easily dissuaded from his actions. In battle Do'Shanji is calm and collected, preferring to react to his enemies attacks rather than leave himself exposed. He is also very guarding of his identity and will sometimes refuse to even give his name to people he doesn't trust.

Social Background/Backstory - Of his family, there is not much known. They, whoever they were, had abandoned him long ago. It never really got to him though, as he grew up knowing nothing different. Do'Shanji lived for as long as he could remember in the city of Orcrest. There he was trained in the ways of Khajiit martial arts, by a master of Rawlith Khaj at a young age. Do'Rahka was his master and he was one of the best in all of Elsweyr. After fully completing his training he took up the Do' prefix, to indicate his status as a warrior among the Khajiit. Do'Shanji became a defender of Elsweyr and fought in many battles for the Mane, most famously at the Battle of Dune. His prowess in combat that day brought him a great personal honor. The Mane chose him to be part of his personal guard. It was then that he received the skillfully crafted armor that he wears to this day. For a warrior, one could not ask for a better life.

However not all was well in Elsweyr. The Knahaten Flu crept it's way into Elsweyr from Black Marsh. The Mane disbanded his guard and took refuge in a remote location. Do'Shanji was smart (or lucky) enough to join with some of the trade caravans and made his way out of the province. He has not returned home for quite some time. He cannot go back, there is too much risk of death there. For now he is a traveling mercenary. Willing to lend his formidable skills in combat to those in need, for a price of course. Many are not trusting of Khajiit, especially such grim looking ones, so he often takes jobs as soon as they have been offered to him, before they can change their mind. Do'Shanji is a Khajiit that knows his limitations. Knows what jobs he can handle and which he can't. He doesn't just blindly walk into any job, but will immediately agree to ones he knows are within his limits.

Best Memory - The day he was accepted as a true warrior. When he mastered the art of Rawlith Khaj and was accepted into the army of Elsweyr. It was his greatest honor to guard his homeland from those who were foolish enough to try and take it from them.

Worst Memory - Do'Shanji's worst memory was the day he fled Elsweyr. He still feels regret of leaving, but he knows it was the smart thing to do. Though it does not make it any less painful to think of.

Skills - Do'Shanji is greatly skilled in combat, especially in heavy armor, one handed and blocking. Being a master of Rawltih Khaj, he is also very deadly in hand to hand combat. His is of incredible strength, which suits his skills very well. While not exceptionally adept at it, Do'Shanji can hide himself well enough from others at night, but in the daylight his tall stature is difficult to hide in the shadows. He can also see in the dark, it is natural for most Khajiit. Do'Shanji is not much for speech craft or the arcane arts. Not once has he ever cast even one simple spell.

Challenges for the Character - Do'Shanji faces many challenges in Tamriel. His kind are not trusted by many, thus they are always on the move. Danger lurks around every corner for him. Do'Shanji is also haunted by his past decision to leave his homeland. He wonders what would have happened had he stayed instead of escaping the Knahaten Flu. Due to the nature of mercenaries Do'Shanji also fears of losing his identity as a master of Rawlith Khaj, and a true warrior of Eslweyr. He strives to continue his training in the art when he can. Do'Shanji has a distrust of his own faction, the Aldmeri Dominion. He was once enemies with the Bosmer and Altmer, and time has not healed those wounds. It is a struggle for him to grasp the situation that Elsweyr is in and why the Mane would form an alliance with the elves. He always remains hopeful that he will return home some day.

Birthsign – The Lord
“The Lord's Season is First Seed and he oversees all of Tamriel during the planting. Those born under the sign of the Lord are stronger and healthier than those born under other signs “

Religious Views – Do'Shanji worships Alkosh and Azurah like most Khajiit

Politics Views – He does not particularly care for the world of politics. He avoids it when possible, and respects people for their actions not their political views. The recent alliance of his homeland with it's former enemies troubles him. He does not enjoy the thought of fighting with a Bosmer or Altmer at his side. He fought in several battles against both races and it is hard for him to forget such grievances so easily. Other than the Mane, Do'Shanji recognizes no political titles, such as men do for a King or Nobel.

Friends - Do'Shanji has been on many journeys since leaving home and during this time he has made some friends. Many friends in fact. Some of the friends he never saw again. Others joined him again on different adventures here and there, for a time. In the end though Do'Shanji fled from several attempts on his life and lived alone in the jungles of Elsweyr. He lived for about 30 years at the end of his life, without contact from nearly anyone besides students seeking to train under him. He never forgot them though and often wondered what might have been if he hadn't cut off ties.

Stories - I have written a few stories about Do'Shanji (and plans for a few more perhaps) They are listed below in chronological order, though some have no specific dates associated with them.

-The Battle for Dune
-The Battle for Dune (continuation and ending)
-The Death of a Warrior

Memoirs - Mastering an Art

i like the travelling khajiit :) a pretty good character but i think you could ad more to 'challenges for the character' you have named external challenges like 'people not trusting his kind' and 'dangers lurk round every corner' but what about his internal challenges? is he home sick? what is his final goal?
overall cool character :)

Yeah that is a good idea. I wasn't really sure of what to write for that part so I left it pretty open ended. I will think about some internal challenges and add them in. Thanks for the input!

much better :) now when you roleplay you will be able to govern your actions better.
giving characters an end goal even if small allows the viewer to feel more empathy.

Added some more physical description and also expanded the political views/challenges to explain why he would be working with other races in RP events.
