Hi, before to go to the Bios of my character, I wanted just to let the readers know, that I don't have a good english nor a good grammar, plz understand, this is to avoid the grammar nazis that are flooding the internet with no reason, when they can understand very well what they read even if that is badly writed.

Another thing, I created a story for my character back in 2012 in this forum, I didnt found the story, maybe it was deleted, but thats ok, I will write the new things I created also the old things too.

Before starting, Martha is a girl, who born in 18th of Mid year (June) who grew up with her family untill they died/went to war. That happened when she was 10 years old. Then an assassin found her and created her under the Dark Brotherhood. Some years has passed and she felt in love with that assassin. Some traitor in the Dark Brotherhood was killing the members and then that assassin died, Martha did her revenge and after that she left the Dark Brotherhood to go to war in Cyrodiil. I can't say with precision the future, but after that she made friends in the road (My brothers characters xD) and she felt in love with Gozuskan (My second character). After some years (At that time is after the ESO events) she was pregnant, but Gozuskan left to fight agaisn't someone, then she wrote a letter in hope to be delivered by the wind to Gozuskan, then she left to go to search for Gozuskan.

Hope you enjoy, I made this with passion and it took time to create and write.

*******Actual Story*******

My name is Martha . And this is my story ...

One dark night where Masser and Secunda were in a full state (the two moons), something terrible would have happened in the Imperial city, an empire that lasted nearly an ERA, would have fallen. Arcane explosions shook the city and awakened the dead, horrific monsters were invoked from portals linking the plans of Oblivion to our world. Mages were killed or went mad. Blood ran through the streets of the Imperial city and death was the queen of that night . A strong empire that had grown dim with corrupt nobles, that which their religion would make them to worship the Daedra.
The Empire would lose its emperor and the second ERA would have been with a red bloodstain war that would last about 20 years.
This war would have been constituted by organizations of the Daggerfall Covenant, the Ebonheart Pact and the Aldmeri Dominion (Elves) .
The three organizations have fought each other to conquer the Imperial city, each organization had its ideals , although they had a common goal , washing the imperial throne and take this from the hands of the corrupts .
This was an event that happened at the end of the second ERA until Talos (Tiber Septim) would have conquered the city and would have given a new direction and a new hope to the people of Tamriel , thus ending the second ERA and giving birth to the third ERA .

Me, well, I was born 21 years before the beginning of these events , I was born into a poor family, where they had a small farm , we had pigs and chickens , and that was the source of our food .
I was born on 18 mid-year (June in real life) 2E 850. I was born in the night at my parent’s house, my father and a neighbor were who helped my mother in childbirth. I would have been the first daughter and third child my parents had. Over the years, I began to help my mother, cleaning the house, and take care of the farm. My two older brothers helped my father in hunting and bringing firewood to use in the fireplace at night to heat our home. Eight years have passed. Only just telling the story brings me back those memories, where I lived with my family, lived with little, but with a smile on my face, I was happy. However Skyrim, my homeland was always invaded by the creatures called Akavir, some beings who don’t belong in Skyrim, who wanted to conquer Tamriel , but the Nord pride struggled to run out of these human -shaped snake. That was when the High King would have called all the men of the province to go to war, was when my father would have been called.
That afternoon of the 3rd of First Seed (March), my father left us. My brothers, my mother reflected sadness, I felt sad. I will never forget his words:
- You are your father’s little princess , be strong , help your mother .
- Father, will you return?
- Yes ...
- Promise?
Who should make promises, will be our eight divines, honey, but any place you go, I'll always be with you, in your heart, you just need to close your eyes, I'll be there . I’d like to see you grow, but whatever you do, I love you, you are the pride of your father, all of you are.
- I love you too, father.
He would have gone in that wagon, I waited all day for him, asked my mom for him. Neither my mother nor my brothers knew when he would come. From that day I never saw him. However, after two years my elder brother and my mother got sick, while my other brother went hunting I stayed home to take care of them both, clean the house, take care of the livestock and the farm. But there was no cure and two weeks was enough for them both to die. So just me and my 14 years old brother were alone in the house, we tried every month to pay the rent, we needed to give 50 coins. It was expensive, but the man who came every month to seek tax had no idea of the work it took to get these coins.
One afternoon I looked out the window, alone at home , I saw the sun set and my brother had arrived .
- Martha, what are you doing sitting there?
- I’m just looking at the sunset.
- Have you treated the dinner, I'm starving.
- Yes, brother. Have you ever looked at the sunset?
- No, what about it?
- It seems our lives is becoming more sad, it’s like the sun is set in our lives. This house was full of joy and happiness, today is completely empty and sad.
- Um, how so?
- You remember that our mother said? To not treat food as if it were an object?
- Yes, I remember, she was pissed when I and our deceased brother we came to the house and ran inside the home after a good day of hunting with our father.
- I miss them all.
- Me too, I only hope that the eight divines have them all.
- I just hope our pa returns.
- And he will ...

One night, heard screams of distress, would have awakened and looked out the window, there was fire, people being killed. My brother came to me for us to escape. The Akavir were here to kill us. But the entrance was blocked with flames, it was impossible to leave. My brother and I searched for a way out, we found a small window in the basement of the house, my brother helped me get up there and very carefully I was able to leave.
- Do not worry brother, I'll ask for help.
- Forget about me , Martha go ahead , do not worry about me , I'll get some solution. Only flee.
- But brother ...
- Run! - Shouted.
So I did, I ran… Ran until the dark forest and leaned on a tree. I felt asleep with tears in my eyes. The next day, early in the morning, I woke, had gone to see my house, but this was destroyed by the flames. I saw a burnt body, soon I called the people who were collecting the dead from the tragedy, screamed in panic because there was a dead person inside the house. They collected the body, but since the start, I knew it would have been my brother who would have been taken by the tragedy. As I did at the funeral of my mother and my older brother, I would have put a flower. Would have cried, but this time I was alone and had no one, nowhere to go . I was alone in this world, I didn’t had an house to stay.
Today I look at the graves of them three, put a flower as ever I have done every year. I ask them to look for me, I ask them to help me , because I will always remember them. The wind took everything I had one day. Every smile was replaced by the hurt and sadness , loneliness have been my best companion in those days.
Back in those times , I would have spent three days on a long walk to Rift. When I got there, the guards let me in, inside of the city, few days has passed, after they see me begging on the streets, they put me in the Ratway, where all poor beggars live. I was forced to have to socialize with them. I learnt some tricks on how to pickpocket and even how to beg. But one day when I was trying to steal the pocket full of coins of a guard, to buy food, he caught me at the worst time.
- Well, well, what we have here. A little thief who so new just learnt the things that the scum do.
- Let me go, let me go.
- No, first I have to enjoy myself. How old are you?
- It has nothing to do with you. Let me go.
- So funny.
I gave him a kick in the site, making him moan of pain, but soon he called for help.
- Catch that bitch! Thief! Catch her!
A beggar back there would have watched and would have screamed.
- Run, run.
So I did, but would have been followed by four guards. They caught me in the middle of the forest.
- And now my little bitch?
- Now she is ours.
- Get off me. - I cried out in despair
I was the target of an attempted rape, offered resistance but was beaten in return. They tried to lower my pants. I screamed loudly for help. One of them covered my mouth with his hand.
But, one of the guards would have taken an arrow in the head. The other three dropped me frightened and tried to see where the arrow came out.
- Who was the coward who killed my colleague?
Came two arrows and killed two other guards. I leaned in the trunk of a tree, scared too ... Appeared a man dressed in black, with a hood and with the mouth covered.
- Me ... Any problems? - This man said in a very thick and provocative voice.
- Who are you? - Asked the last guard alive, preparing to attack.
- Someone who is willing to take your life. - Said the mysterious man preparing his two swords.
- Hm ... That won’t going to happen! - He ran toward the killer man, and suddenly saw blood everywhere.
- It happened ... - Said the killer with irony in his face to the guard already slaughtered.
He looked at me with a straight face, approached me and could increasingly see his eyes. His right eye was blind and had a scar. This man conveyed fear just by looking. I was scared just looking at him.
- In the laws of the brotherhood should not leave any witnesses in murder.
- So, take my life, please, I'll thank you if you do. - I told him convinced that he would end my life with a smile on my face. I had lost my family, I had nothing more to lose, at least I thought so at the time.
The man admired by such courage that a little girl had, would have changed his mind, took off the mask.
- Courage is a noble thought, so my little I'm not going to take your life. But just tell me. What is your name? - He asked.
- Martha ... - I replied.
- Why these guards followed you?
-I ... Hm... - I hesitated to answer for fear. And the man would felt my fear.
Do not be afraid, I 'm not going to hurt you, little one , I just want you to answer me.
- I was caught stealing a pocket with coins from one of them and they followed me here.
- You know ... Stealing is a bad thing, at least that's what my mother said when I was younger, but I cannot judge you. Killing is worse. Tell me, do you have someone waiting for you? Do you have family?
- You mean ... - I looked at the floor sadly, the killer could feel this feeling. - I have my father, but he went to war, my mother and my brothers are already dead, now I'm alone, trying to do my best I can while I wait for my father.
- You got the notion ... That your father at this time may be dead, do not you?
- Yes, but that is not my thought ... I want him back.
- Of course, we all wait for someone, when we love that person. By all means and costs, we hope to see them again. But I tell you so ... I cannot promise you that your father will back, or that the rest of your family that you lost will return to life. But I can give you a new family, a new home. A... New hope.
- New hope...
- Yes. I can introduce you to my brothers and sisters, we'll teach you how to defend yourself, and never stay down and always manage to get up in the worst of times. We will give you a power, the power to take lives, have the power to decide who lives and who dies. Your new mother, the Night Mother will always look for you, how she does for her lovely brotherhood. You can join us at our side and be happy until the day you rest in peace in void of Sithis.
-I ... I need a home. I need someone. I... I want to go...
That day I gave my hand to the assassin and together we headed to my new home.
When I got there I was not welcome, because I was a child, but with time and training, I became stronger, I won the respect of my new brothers and sisters with open arms I promised to the Night Mother and to Sithis to join the group. I still remember the first few times I did group work, when we were going to kill troops in an organization to gain access to our target. Or when would conclude a contract and suddenly said 'death' before killing the person who was spotted in the respective contract, I travel the whole of Tamriel, completing the contracts for the Dark Brotherhood, I put my new family, the Dark Brotherhood proud of me. But one day, as all children who grow, I left my home to go to my new adventures.
- Today, mother and brothers, I’m beginning a new life. I will scream, cry, fight and kill for the glory of my family, wich I am very proud to be one. Today, once again I visit you all, as I do every year. Rest in peace with our divines.
And every grave had a flower, each one with live colors, meaning my love for my old family, which also wanted to say how happy I was while they lived.
I turned back to go away, but in my mind I said to them:
- I will return, I promise. I love you all.


*******This is the first chapeter I wrote, now comes some parts of the story*******
*******This poem doesn't have rhymes, because it was written in portuguese, I will add rhymes to the poem with time, right now it is like this*******

Deep down,
It seems to be an ocean,
I can't live in my world anymore,
With my eyes closed, I dream,
For a happy future,
Where my sadness is no more,
In an eternal darkness,
Is it my new life?
Or I closed my eyes forever?
I dreamt with my death,
There's what I have in my mind,
The Love,
And the end of the Pain,

******Portuguese version of the Poem*****
Lá no fundo,
Parece um oceano,
Não consigo viver mais no meu mundo,
De olhos fechados, sonho,
Por um futuro risonho,
Onde a minha tristeza jamais,
Numa escuridão eterna,
Será a minha vida moderna?
Ou será que fechei os olhos para sempre?
Sonhei com a minha morte.
Eis o que guardo na minha mente,
O Amor,
E o fim da Dor.

*******Little parts of the story*******
"I can't live together with someone, after all I am a monster, an assassin. My fault or not, I grew up in that way, maybe I will live and die like this. At least I will live with honor."

"Happiness does not strike me, my soul was stole by Molag Bal, the Daedric prince of destruction and change. I try to fight agaisnt me every day, but I can't find an answer or a solution. I think I will need to fight agaisn't someone who can't be defeated. Maybe everything is lost. But I will fight untill the end, it was like this I learnt to live under the celling of the Dark Brotherhood. With heart and soul I give myself to the Night Mother and to the void of Sithis, but untill then I won't give up, I will fight untill the end, at least I know I didn't give up."

*******Letter to Gozuskan*********
In a Nordic way, it is normal to be hard and stronger like a stone, my warm blood of Nord. But something that can't be explained to my heart.
Since the day you left, I can't smile anymore, I lost alot people who once I loved, but this may be the reason why I don't want to lose you too. I don't know if this is normal, but I feel strange. Sadness is a real part of me, I look to the sky, look at the mountains from our house and see how beautiful place that the Divines did for us and how can a person change our life forever. I seek you in my dreams in the middle of the songs of the great place called Sovngarde, as true warriors of the mighty steel, but I feel that you shouldn't be there, not now, you still have alot to do in this world first.
Remember when I cryed in your shoulder? You said:

- I'm doing this because of you, you need to stay, because its more safe to you. I don't want this war take everything I have, inclusive you.

My heart pumped so fast, what I wanted was you, I didn't wanted you to leave. Even if I could understand why you did that. I spent my last days alone, when I sleep I dream with you, feeling your lips, the warm of your body again.
I know you want me to live, but while I form a new life inside of me, I know, this is not a life, because I'm not living anymore... Not without you.
I will leave, I will search for you. Whatever happens, I love you, you need to know that, I'm sorry, but its the way it is.

With affection and love
Martha

There's certainly a lot of detail in this, more than I see in a lot of bios. You've certainly fleshed out her character through the story and the poem captures what the character is (I don't really know the right word to describe it). What I might suggest is putting these stories in the library, and make a brief summary of the character in here.

I'd like to know more about her skills and beliefs. Her skills as a thief were touched upon, but not expanded further. Is she able to hold her own in a fight? Does she prefer to strike from a distance? Is she more of a sneaking killer?
And what have these dramatic effects on her life led her to believe about her rulers? Does she hate them for the death of her parent? Or does she think that her father a hero for dying in such a noble cause?
And is she more sceptical of the gods, now that she seems abandoned by them? Or do they act as a constant companion to her in her times of need?

Oh, and is this the bio you were talking about?

Well, I'm writing more about that :)

Well, that is a Bios of my second character (Gozuskan), but I think that wasn't very well thought. Because I didn't thought very well on him. Focusing more on this character :)
And thx for your questions, that are indeed worth to think about, but only writing the stories I get the answer xD

It is a shame that my english isn't the best. Still learning, still I'm glad you could understand that big wall of text :D
