Faction & Race:
Ebonheart Pact (Dunmer)
Name: Manarax Agillius

Race: Half-Dunmer/ Half Cyrodiilian

Age: 25

Sex: Male

Occupation: Bounty Hunter

Faction: Ebonheart Pact

Appearance: At 5' 11" and 165 lbs Manarax doesn't stand out physically. His most noticeable features are his light grey skin and sharp chin. being of mixed blood he received a lot of hassle from other Dunmer growing up and this has left him sensitive about his appearance. As such he is hardly ever seen without a hooded cloak of some sort. Usually seen with a bow made of a black wood with a full lacquer and inscribed with runes from some unknown language. At his side he caries two daggers, one elven called Llothirindal, and one silver, both sharpened to a razors edge. His leather armor is dyed a midnight blue and he wears a matching pair of fine black leather boots and gloves, His quiver carries an assortment of arrows, but his pride and joy are the two ebony arrows that he found several years ago.

Personality: Quiet and reserved until he gets to know you, but then his personality does a mercurial switch to a friendly and talkative demeanor once he does. As stated before he is sensitive and can get quite surly when discussing his appearance and ancestry. Loyal to friends, but very vindictive to those who wrong him. He is known to be very picky about who he chooses to call a friend. Traveling with his companions has changed this somewhat, and he now is a bit more loose in this.

Back story: Raised in Hillatha a small farming community along the Morrowind/ Cyrodiil border, Manarax was picked on mercilessly as a kid. As such he grew up fast and hard. Surprisingly this didn't turn him antisocial, mostly due to the two women of his life. His mother Irrenia and his best friend Gissella. These two ladies were instrumental in keeping Manarax from losing himself to anger. His father, Mauritius Agillius was a retired soldier from the Cyrodiil legion, and as Manarax grew up he learned to fight from his father. His father had been a member of the Red Scorpions, an elite archer unit that was reportedly part of the Imperial Guard.
When he was a young man his village was raided by a group of marauders led by a necromancer. During this raid his mother, and two younger brothers, were killed. Even worse, their bodies were stolen and used in some sort of necromantic ritual.
This had two profound effects upon Manarax. The first was that on that day he lost all respect for the two religions of his family. His father was a devout worshiper of the Eight, and his mother was an Azura worshiper. Since neither had protected his family he turned to the only power who he felt could help him get revenge, Sithis.
The second effect was his undying hatred for the practice of necromancy. One week after his family was buried, he and his father set out to hunt down the marauders. Three months later they returned with 27 heads to present to the village, including the head of the necromancer that had led the attack.
A few years later his father passed away from the sickness that was sweeping the land. He had married Gissella and had two daughters, but lost one to the plague. Then, one evening as he was out hunting, his home was invaded and his wife was abducted.
He came home to find his infant daughter, Sirenna, alone in the house amidst signs of a fierce struggle. Although there had been some blood spilled, there was not enough to believe that it was from a body. The signs he read suggested that Gissella had fought and wounded one of her attackers. After leaving his daughter with her grandparents he set out to find his wife.
That led him to meeting Endaros and Thorfinn. He met others along the way, but Thorfinn and Endaros are definitely ones he would now call friend. His interaction with the Argonian Quib, has left a bit of a hole in his heart, as he had really grown to like the little scamp, and his apparent death has left him a little hurt.

Best memory: the first time he kissed Gissella.

Worst memory: watching his little girl Lissa die from the plague.

Skills: bow, 1 handed weapons, stealth, alchemy, Light armor, destruction, and if they have it athletics and acrobatics.

Challenges: find and if possible rescue his wife, get vengeance.

Birth sign: The Steed

Religion: Sithis

Political views:Since the politicians do nothing to help him, he sees no reason to help them.

Weaknesses: Manarax has a greater chance of contracting diseases and a greater susceptibility to poisons. This is a legacy of the plague that he survived two years before. As well as this is the fact that when his family is in danger he would do anything to defend them.

I like this.

You rarely hear about mixed-race people among human races or mer races. I've always found that strange about TES. People have sex. It happens. The bloodlines would not be so distinct.

You hear about Breton's having mer blood... Menmer, so to speak. So it follows that men and mer can breed. Maybe the beast races are out, but you know there would be brothels for people who are into that kind of stuff. lol

Anyhow, it's always been a shortcoming of TES lore IMHO. Sorry for the tangental rant! :)

I agree with the above statement. Their have been a few cases in the series lore outside of games like in books and stuff if I am not mistaken. Still interesting character and I really like it. HAIL SITHIS!

Thank you both, it's always nice to hear that someone appreciates the work I've put into a good character and storyline.

They have had a few examples of crossbreed races. The Grey Prince from Oblivion is an example. His father was a human (Cyrodiilian I think) vampire, and his mother was an Orc. But you are correct that they are few and far between. Kinda like there were no children in TES until Skyrim.

gotta love weaknesses! and we got some pretty unique ones too! a weaker immune system is a pretty cool weakness. can't believe i haven't read your bio before. it's pretty damn sweet!. i mean his mother gets killed and turned into a zombie! thats awesome! i keep on telling people to do that when they include necromancers. your the first to do it and i didn't have to tell you to do it! bravo. really. well done :D.
as you can tell i am loving this character. i've got some questions, did your character see his mother and brother become zombies and if so were you forced to kill them? if he did does he have a fear of the undead? this could be a pretty challenging but cool weakness. a hatred for necromancy but a fear of their servants! maybe he did have a fear but the dark brotherhood has turned that fear to anger!
my favorite part of your character is his theme. he joined the DB because he did not have a choice. you say it's because azura nor the eight did anything to prevent the death of your mother and brothers but maybe you could add more, like your character asked the guards for help but they were too scared, the fighters guild are worrying about the daedra and the mages guild were too focused on their books and studies to help one such as you. this will show that your character really didn't have a choice! how did your character join the dark brotherhood? did he preform the black sacrament to contact one of them? maybe he heard rumours that you have to kill in cold blood to join and in an act of pure desperation he did exactly that!
overall a fantastic character. well done! i'll look forward to any further updates he may receive

Actually quib he's not a member of either the Dark Brotherhood, or the Morag Tong. He only worships Sithis, but that's only because Sithis is the Uncaring Void. He doesn't fear the undead, only despises them and their creators. If the DB or Morag Tong were to contact him that would depend on a lot of things such as his wife and whether she's alive then, and his daughter Sirenna. If it was a choice, I think he'd join the Morag Tong first, as they're more his style. He is a bounty hunter not an assassin. But there are a lot of factors to consider.
