Faction & Race:
Ebonheart Pact
Argonian
Name - Lurks-In-Shadows
Race - Argonian
Sex - Male.
Age - Young Adult, late 20's in human age.
Occupation - ... Acquiring goods. Assassinations, Rogue-for-hire.
Faction - Ebonheart Pact.
Appearance - Darkish green skin, with some short horns. No hair. Fairly thin body, but athletic.
Personality - I try to keep to myself as much as I can, I sometimes stay honest, especially (not) with guards, but I don't tell people what they don't need to know. I hold grudges.
Social Background/Backstory - He started out as a young argonian, of course. All argonians do. He never knew of his parents, and is of course upset at the fact that they left him. No one took him in, but he was taken in while he was an infant. He does not remember who they were, even though he lived with them until he was a young teen, but he remembers that they did not seem Argonian. He ran away when he was 14, trying to find purpose. What he found was his true nature. He saw a Blacksmith shop, and found the smith at work on the forge. He saw the keys poking out of the smiths pocket, and took them instantly. He waited for night, and went in the shop. He stole a steel dagger, a hunting bow, some steel arrows, and some coins. Lurks-In-Shadows was ready for the world now. He left the house and ran out into the wilderness, but when he was almost out of the towns territory, he was interrogated by two guards. They were getting the bonds on my hands when suddenly, they stopped. They had a strange look on their face, happy? Then he turned, and saw his first, childhood friend, Im-Kur, just finish casting the pacify spell. They quickly caught up with eachother, and stayed as partners since. To this day, he longs to join the Dark Brotherhood. While stealing gems and amulets and rings are still a burning passion, he longs to end the lives that betray the Brotherhood, and maybe take down some people of the other Factions while he's at it. He worships Sithis, and as the Dark Brotherhood do as well, and they are stealthy, he just feels as though he would fit in very good with them. As them. Of course he worships Sithis, he would say if he could say anything; He is so powerful, he was one of the creators of the Aedra and Daedra! Even the Hist acknowledge him! He is the one who keeps the dead, and as the Brotherhood worship them, Lurks has a will to be with them, in their ranks. He and Im-Kur will be one of the most feared assassins someday, they hope. But, as always, they are currently loyal only to each other and the Thieves Guild, where they have learned their sneaky ways.
Best Memory - Pulling my first heist, robbing the stableman blind. Admittedly, I was caught, but I managed to store the valuables in a crate before I got caught.
Worst Memory - Jail. I felt more alone then I ever have. But, it showed me never to get caught, or else I will need to go through that again. Then again, I pickpocketed the key and got out after 3 days, but still.
Skills - Skilled in theft, and quick and quiet on his feet. Sharp blade, sharp tongue. Surprising for an Argonian. Sneak, lockpick, Pickpocket, and Speech primarily.
Challenges for the Character - Basically, he was alone when he was young, but he never wants to talk about it, even to his best friends. He wants to get into the Dark Brotherhood with all his heart, but he doesn't know how to get in... but that will be fixed soon. But, being the stealthy secretive rogue that he is, he isn't very good socially. The meaning of friends escapes him, usually only going so far as friendly acquaintance. There are only a few exceptions of this, but when he would someday stop his illegal ways, he would be lost.
Birthsign - The Thief.
Religious Views - He worships Sithis, not as a fanatic, but secretly.
Political Views - Not major issue to character.

Lurks-in-Shadows is quite the cut throat type! I suppose Tamriel would have a few rogue typess to steal valuables and assassinate targets as they so choose-- it is a dangerous world afterall!

For the occupation, a single term that might work may be Rogue-for-Hire. But if you want to keep the details on what he actually does, perhaps you could include it in the backstory; although it may be a given considering he's associated with the Thieves Guild and is trying to enter the Dark Brotherhood.

I'm curious to see why he wishes to join the Dark Brotherhood. I'd imagine it's because he believe he'd be a good fit in there, but you state specifically that "he longs to end the lives that betray the Brotherhood" which implies some sort of already inherent loyalty to them. Does he believe in Sithis and wishes to protect the Dread Father's devotees? Does he admire the Dark Brotherhood that much that he wants to see it prosper? A simple line or two would do in clarifying his devotion to the Dark Brotherhood!

Anyways, hope he continues his adventures, even if they are a bit cut throat!

good character and i have enjoyed RPing with him on the odd occasion :) i'll start with some tiny gripes :) (this is more me thinking out load than feed back :P). one thing that i see alot is people making a certain 'class' and giving them the matching star sign. in this case your character is a theify sort with the thief as his star sign. yes this does make sense in the elder scrolls as we all should know, one being born under a certain star sign will have certain ... advantages but that does not make it law you know? the reason i say it, is because i'll bet we'll see so many people create characters for RP and they'll make a mage born under the mage, a theif born under the thief and a warrior born under the (can you guess what it is) warrior. my second niggle is agreeing with what Horizon said, that the most interesting part of your story (well for me any way :)) is that your character wants to be part of the Dark Brotherhood! now as we know the DB arn't seen with high reguard by most people and to even practise the black sacrament! well you'll be in a cell for a long time! people even fear to mention! now onto my niggle, my niggle is that your a theify character wanting to join the DB, you know, even if your character does join them i bet he would fit in find, your character is pretty much prefect for being an assassin! and me and perfect don't very much get along. i would like to see some one who has a busy life maybe? a breton polictision maybe? and he has joined the DB! and the challenges he'll or she'll face is hiding that fact, if they are a very important person it would be hard to do! this challenge right here is why (i belieive ) shows like breaking bad and dexter are so popular. obviosly don't make your character a breton noble, i was just thinking out loud :P and we have alot we can work with here :)

now onto the feedback, love your character and you play him very well :), (and thank you for having a 'challenges for the character' section!). you have a nice short bio but there are some unnessersary thing you have added. like the convo section between your character and Im-Kur. instead you can put it as ''Lurks got into trouble with the guards, while they were about to make an arrest. they stopped. they looked happy almost? they left lurks along relieving an argonian behind them. this was Im-Kur and he helped lurks out by casting a pacify spell. Im-Kur and Lurks quickly became friends''. see much shorter and leaves more space to talk about your character wanting to be part of the DB, i wont Dwell on it too much because Horizon has already talked about it :). you have a challenge for your character (which is a pretty good challenge me thinks.) :D but have you thought of adding more? once when he does join the DB (which i bet he will) what would his challenges be then? does he have any emotional problems? what about physical? there are a lot of illnesses and diseases in the elder scrolls universe maybe he suffers badly from one of them. haha maybe he has a cold he can never get rid off and while raiding a house he woke the owner up by coughing loudly! XP. there are a lot of 'cool' diseases in the elder scrolls games look at the uesp page for details and hey you could find a disease that you think would fun to RP with. be creative maybe your character has brain rot! and instead of being stupid (which i think would be a dull way to RP it) your character is still quite sharp and intelligent but some times finds it hard to focus and concentrate and suffers from bad head aches .... thinking out loud again :P you don't have to give your character an illness :P

overall a pretty kick ass character. i look forward in seeing this character grow and expand!

Thanks for the feedback, both of you!
(Yes, even the thinking out loud, XD)
And, I fixed/changed some of the things (especially the middle of the backstory, and religious views, and challenges).
I don't think I could've added a disease being a challenge for him, because he's an Argonian... but they CAN still get diseases... I dunno, I don't think I want him to have an illness, but that's a good idea anyway.
Also, he doesn't really have much of a social life, so I can't really add the first thing (With the breton assassin businessman, though it did crack me up XD)
And, I added stuff on his reasons for joining the DB. He is a worshiper of Sithis, and along with his skills, he would very much fit with the assassins.

oh shit yeah argonians are pretty resistance to diseases DERP DERP jesus that was one hell of a brian fart i had there! luckily you were sharp haha. the first thing was me just thinking aloud. i think i might actually make that breton noble man (and im glad it made you chuckle :P)
but yeah always always always remember any feed back i give is my opinion. nothing more. nothing less. i wont make you change an aspect of YOUR character if you don't want to :).
I'll give your new bio and read and let you know what i think :)

wow much better! well done! can't wait to see further updates mate (and i'll bet he'll make a pretty dangerous assassin) lets hope quib is on his good side when that happens!

heres a question and i don't mind how you answer :) lets say your character goes into the DB and you've done quite a lot of jobs for them and raising through the ranks naturally. one day you get a new contract as you do and there in bright red letters is the name 'Quib'. now i like to think our character are buddies, but what would you do? what happens if Im-Kur's name is there?

just some questions to ponder over ^-^

Im-Kur is gonna be a DB assassin with me as well :3 (He's another friend)
So his name wouldn't be there (against the rules I think)
Now, if you were there...
I would put all my thinking into seeing you alive, but not having me kicked out :P
Yeah. Lurks is protective of his friends :D
Btw, I just got Oblivion, its gonna be done downloading in like 10 minutes! ^^
