Firstname - Garce

Surname - Tilvvan

Race - Dunmer

title -

Sex - Male

Age - 136 years old

Occupation - Witch hunter

Faction - These evils Don't work in Factions, why should i?

Appearance - Garce is a Dunmer a 6ft. he is adverage build and like most dunmer he is dark of skin and red of eyes. he has aged somewhat horribly over the years (as fighting the undead isn't exactly good for ones health). he has shoulder length black hair which he usually ties back. Garce usually wears a full set of heavy armor so he is always ready for an attack

Personality - the long years of fighting the legions of evil has not done well for Garce's personality. he is cold. brutal. he doesn't get jokes nor does he tell them

Social Background/Backstory - Garce in his youth moved around with his parents alot. he was a difficult child. always complaining when his parents moved for one city to another. due to this it was hard for garce to keep lasting friendships .... but he tried reguardless. as he grew up he settled down in a town in skyrim and applied to be a towns guard, strange for a dunmer to do in a village of Skyrim but his parents knew the head of the town very well and they could use every able body they could get. Garce was strict when it came to the law. he didn't care if it was an old woman stealing bread for her straving kids! she was still a theif in Garce's eyes and would be delt with as such! Guard duties was easy. one day a group of outsiders were looking for able bodied men to become vampire hunters. Garce laughed at this offer because he believed vampires are stories you tell unruly children and took the job as some sort of joke.

during working for the order Garce made a good friend, Silvia, an altmer. tall, blonde and beautiful. Garce made it pretty obvious he fancied her. Due to his childhood making friends didn't come naturally but he managed it and had a long lasting relationship, sadly this 'friend' had a dark secret. while patrolling the streets one night Garce noticed someone bent over someone lieing down. as he came closer he noticed the begger was a corpse and the person bending over was..... feeding!? it was Silvia! she was a vampire and Garce couldn't tell. Garce however couldn't muster the will to kill his friend so he let her escape, a choice that Garce regrets to this day and has made Garce slow to trust! vampires are monsters! they hide in society, pretending to be one of you and feed of the innocences! they must be stopped. through the years Garce has joined many orders and now he is a member of the order of a new dawn. an order that seeks out to destroy all evils. because the only magic users garce has ever met are Conjurers and necromancers, Garce has a huge distrust to any magic user.

life took a turn for the worst. while hunting a band of necromancers Garce himself was being hunted. by a werewolf. Garce kill the werewolf but at a dire price. Garce was bitten. and cursed to be a hunter of the blood moon. for the first month he would have nightmares, awake in a cave, butt naked, when he arrived back at town there was news of someone wondering outside the gates got slaughtered. the towns folk thought it was bandits but Garce knew the truth.

He couldn't find any one that could locate or create a cure but he has found an alchemist who has created a potion that suppresses the transformation. the potion is expensive and Garce has a dependency on it. this is having some terrible side effects! the drug not only suppresses him from turning but it dulls his mind. he has became less sharp and is sluggish almost when it comes to combat ... actually he's sluggish when it comes to just about any thing! this it self has lead to Garce being chosen for less and less jobs which results in less and less money which means he struggles to afford the drug. to get more money Garce has resorted to ... less honest jobs.

Best Memory - some of the short friendships he made as a kid

Worst Memory - realising he is a werewolf

Skills - Garce is skilled with both sword and bow. he is able to stalk his prey for many days and strike when they least expect it. Garce can not use magic, even though being born under the star sign of the mage.

Challenges for the Character - Garce will forever be looking for a cure for being a werewolf. the potion is expensive and have made Garce short on pocket, he has resorted to stealing and sometimes bandit work to get money to pay for the potion (even if it is totally against his moral code). Garce is somewhat addicted to the potion (the alchemist must of added something into it so he would have Garce as a returning customer) he has withdrawals if he hasn't taking any with in the fortnight, Garce hates those who practise ANY form of magic and any who worship any other than the eight divine and ofcourse finally Garce cannot control himself in any way shape or form when he is a werewolf.

Birthsign - The Mage

Religious Views - The eight divine

Don't hide your gift! Welcome it and learn to control it. :D

Brilliant character, I like how you have made him a creature he despises. I can imagine he would be a fun character to use in rp if you are gonna use him in rp. But yeah, really good :).

Yeah, looking forwards to meeting him in rp XD. He has very different views about lycanthropy then Miasmador, their personality's will definitely clash at first but after that... who knows XP.

I'm liking Garce , cursed to be what he despises a werewolf and then resorting to robbery and killing knowingly in order for him to afford a potion which is meant to stop him killing unknowingly.

Thank you ^-^, i was a bit 'iffy' on werewolf hunter becoming a werewolf because it's been done too many times before *cough cough* van helsing *cough* so i wanted his story to be based around the drug he is taking and how it is changing him, physically and mentally. him being a werewolf is a means to that plot point :)

Yeah, it was a good point and how he is becoming addicted to the potion is almost realistic in the fact that the potion is almost like alcohol in the fact he had become addicted to it and it costs a lot. Though its alright to use others ideas, it means you like them and its hard to come up with a completely original and good story, practically all the good ideas have been taken.

As Miasmador just said its hard to be completely original , and that is still just a part of Garces story altogether you portray a pretty unique character.

yeah, thanks guys. it's funny, if i said Garce went into drugs because of depression, stress etc only certain amount of us will relate but if i say it's because he's a werewolf, it suddenly becomes abit more understandable to more of us. even if it is a fantastical reason :P.
thanks for the comments guys ^-^ anyone got any general feedback? anything i should add? anything i should take away?

An interesting dynamc character indeed! I especially like the concept of the inner conflict he is going through-- the whole he is what he hunts. Hircine probably would be most amused. Anyways, here's some suggestions and ideas from me.

I believe, especially in the earlier eras, that dunmer are rare in Skyrim and treated with even more suspicion by the nords due to their history of conflict and not as common exposure such as in the 3rd Era. Perhaps you could subtly mention why and how your family ended up in Skyrim, and how he was able to integrate himself in the nordic society. A dunmer as a guard in Skyrim and a worshipper of western gods is quite rare-- so perhaps you could expand on that. I'd imagine he'd have social issues with both the nords of Skyrim and the dunmer of Morrowind.

Concerning his realization that vampires are a true threat, you mentioned that he saw that they were monsters. Perhaps you could include a short example of what he saw. Nothing too long and detailed, just mentioning a specific instance. Did he find a massacre in a farmhouse commited by vampires? Did he see a vampire drink a pilgrim dry out in the wild? A specific example may resonate his fury against vampires more thoroughly.

To list his occupation a bit more cleanly, perhaps you should just list his occupation as a "Witch Hunter." But then put a line at the end of his backstory that he now hunts unnatural evils of all kinds; including vampires, werewolves, daedra, and necromancers. This would also inform readers what he is doing presently and for the forseeable future. That is, unless surpressing his lycanthropy is his main focus now.

I'm interested to see what his outlook is on his current life, though I'm sure you could depict that in future writings. He fights and hunts those who are a menance to society, yet has slain an innocent as a werewolf and robs folks as a bandit to keep himself in control. Has he ever had to kill anyone in his banditry? Does he feel inane guilt for going against his moral code or does he try to ignore the thought entirely? How far would he go to supress his lycanthropy? These would be pretty interesting concepts to explore going into the future.

The alchemist who aids Garce could also be a very interesting side character in his story arc. If you ever include him in the RP, or in stories; you can try to detail him as a deep character as well!

Thanks for the feed back as always horizion. i will expand on ALL the points you detailed :)

yeah, your first point about him integrating himself into nordic society will be one i'll ponder on for quite some time. i am a huge fan of the lore but i do like bending it in places and make characters not fully follow the sterotypes of there race, however i will be careful not to break any lore. (and i do like the fact that he will have issues with his own race, hm how will that effect him i wonder?)

first meeting of a vampire. that is a damn important point and i was foolish not to detail it in my first draft! :P, i just thought of what i think to be a good idea. Garce will make a good friend, as we know from his bio this is hard for him to do, sadly this 'friend' is a vampire and Garce couldn't tell. Garce will find out that his friend is a vampire and this will result in Garce not trusting easy. im also thinking for Garce not to have the strength (mentally) to kill his friend so he would let him escape, a choice that Garce regrets to this day.

I will update the occupation as you said :). though now he hunts both the unnatural evils and is focused of battling his own Lycanthropy. the job gives him money but not enough, thats why he has to do the less honourable jobs like thievery

Ah yes his current outlook on life! he hates himself, through and through! he has no choice. he's not a famous enough monster hunter to be rich enough to afford the drug, he lacks charm and charisma and he isn't renowned for his swordsmanship or marksmanship so has had to resort to being a low life thug. it started when he inspected a house that had been attacked by creatures, he would take the odd ring here, the odd necklace there and blame it on the monsters.
The drug has dulled his mind some what and he isn't the fighter he once was. he gets chosen for less and less jobs and therefore gets paid less and less. yes it KILLS him inside to break his moral code but what would happen if he stopped taking the drug would be much worse! the guilt of murdering an innocent doesn't help his nerves.
as of yet he has not killed any innocent while posing as a bandit but he has beaten people up badly, people weaker than him. the guilty feeling he gets from doing that is awful. but not as bad as the withdrawal symptoms if he hasn't taken the drug.

The alchemist isn't really aiding Garce, he is using him. he has made a werewolf suppressant and purposely made it very addictive knowing full well if Garce was to rat him out, well the alchemist knows worse secrets about him. i think i might make a Bio on him now you mention it, i'll have to polish garce's bio first though.

thanks again for the feedback, it is highly appreciated and is going to help this character grow and expand ^-^, i'll add the changes tomorrow morning me thinks
