Faction & Race:
Aldmeri Dominion
Khajiit
Name - Jaree-Tah
Sex - Male
Age - 25
Occupation - Agent
Faction - Ebonheart Pact
Birthsign - The Tower

Appearance - Jaree is an argonian of average height and build. His scales are a pattern of dark green and black, with splotches of either color here and there. There are small horns that line his jaw and brow. They do not protrude very far from his face however. Yellow is the color of his eyes, with vertical pupils.

Equipment - Wooden Recurve, 30 Iron Arrows with a leather quiver, Iron Short Sword, Steel Dagger, 5 lockpicks and one extra in the hollow heel of his right boot, Worn leather armor with a tattered cloth hood. It was all the equipment that Dro'Nazul had when he was captured. He had managed to hide it it the wilderness, but told Jaree to take them when he heard of his escape plans. The khajiit was far too old to make use of them again.

Personality - Jaree-Tah is a quiet Argonian, preferring to listen in the shadows rather than be the center of attention. He is often not trusting of strangers, he can warm up once he gets to know someone personally though. Because of his background, he will not be friendly towards members of House Telvanni. Additionally he is wary of all dunmer that he doesn't personally know yet. He is a strategist, but not a leader. The years of slavery have caused permanent damage to his psyche, causing him to have sudden flashbacks to painful memories at times. His demeanor is very laid back and is not quick to anger. His reasoning is that anger is a useless emotion, serving only to obscure the mind.

Social Background/Backstory - Jaree-Tah was captured by Dunmer slavers from House Telvanni at a young age. He has no memories of his life before that. He learned what he could growing up as a slave. He wasn't the only slave there were more, mostly argonians, but there were a few khajiit as well.

One of the khajiit who had been captured was an Agent in his days of freedom. Dro'Nazul taught what he could to the young Jaree-Tah. Still the punishment would be severe if they were caught so the time was always so short.

Life was miserable for him for a long time. As the years passed, he began to think of ways to escape. He waited until the perfect opportunity and made a break for it. He ran, and ran some more. He escaped into Cyrodiil.

For a short time, he worked on the skills that Dro'Nazul taught him. News of war was coming though and soon Jaree-Tah found work with an organization known as Vlos Hitheren. He hoped to improve his skills in the coming war in his quest to become an agent like Dro'Nazul.

Best Memory - His best memory was seeing the rolling green landscape of Cyrodiil for the first time. It was symbolic to him, he would start his life anew, as a free argonian.

Worst Memory - His time in Morrowind as a slave.
Skills - Archery, One-Handed, Sneak, Illusion, Security
Spells - Calm, Chameleon, Charm, Nighteye

Challenges for the Character - Challenges include finding his own way. After being held captive for so long, the change to free society is not always easy. Another challenge is improving in his skills. Being captured at such a young age did not afford him many opportunities to develop them. The time with Dro'Nazul was cruicial, but very limited. Overcoming the flashbacks when they occur presents another challenge for the young argonian.

Religious Views - Jaree-Tah does not worship any gods, he believes that everyone must seek council with their inner-self to find their destiny. His time as a slave turned him away from the idea of gods.

Politics Views - He is very much against slavery and will go out of his way to free those held captive. He does not hold many other views, as it does not affect him. He does not like the alliance that Black Marsh has with Morrowind. However he acknowledges that there is little that can be done about it.

Very good, this is the first time you dip your toes into RP-water, right? :D It's good that you kept it fairly basic without it being too plain. It's a common mistake to completely drown yourself and the reader with details that don't matter and only tie your background into knots. Good job :D

I just created this guy, I have been using my Khajiit for a few RPs so far. Had to make an EP guy so I could join MaxxRocker's guild. I have found it's easier to add to the background and other things after you use them in role play. Kind of have a better sense of how they are I guess.
