Backstory:
Here we go again... I'll add to this.

Byrandin Solaris was born to a Priest of Auri-El, Odimar Solaris, and and a witchhunter, Adrexia. They met when Adrexia came to the temple for healing after being severely injured by a pack of vampires. They are both loving parents. Adrexia has since retired as a witchhunter (the aforementioned vampire encounter gave her mental scars as well as physical ones), but often helps out at the temple.

Odimar taught Byrandin about the et'Ada -- both the Aedra and the Daedra -- from a young age. In fact, Odimar intended Byrandin to follow in his footsteps and become a priest. However, as the boy was to active and adventurous, it was decided that he should become a holy knight.

After numerous years of religious, magical, and military training, Byrandin had become a fine Templar.

He has been to many different places, but rarely travels outside the borders of the Dominion. He has friends in all three provinces as well as a few from others. His life changed after receiving a letter from a friend in Elsweyr.

His friend's caravan was frequently being harassed by vampires. The bloodsuckers had apparently come from Cyrodiil. Byrandin was needed for a week or so to protect the caravan.

After the job was finished, Byrandin said his goodbyes and headed home. On the way, he was attacked by the vampires' leader. The vile creature was fast and powerful, but Byrandin was able to kill it with the aid of holy magic. He thought all was well, but that's because he didn't realize that he had been infected.

When he arrived home two days later, his parents greeted him happily. He was feeling ill, so he went straight to bed.

When he awoke the next morning, he felt strange. He felt very... aware of his surroundings, almost as if he had heightened senses. When he stepped outside, the sunlight briefly blinded him. After regaining his vision, he noticed that his skin had become rather pale. He shrugged it off and went about the day as normal, though slightly fatigued.

The next day, however, things became worse. He felt even more aware than before. As he stepped outside, his flesh burned. He ran to a washbasin and stared in horror. He looked as though he had aged greatly. He opened his mouth and saw sharp teeth and fangs. He was stunned.

He prayed to Auri-El and asked for help, but it was revealed that Auri-El had planned Byrandin's infection. He wanted him to destroy the undead abominations of Molag Bal with their own power.

And so, he does.[/i]

Backstory: (I will add to this)

Byrandin has long been a devout follower of the Elven sun god Auri-El. Despite being a holy warrior, you might not consider him to be the most virtuous of people (Auri-El's a sun god; why would he care?). He's a rather lustful man and visits High Rock every year for the March of Beauty (he is particularly fond of Breton women, so you can imagine his "excitement" -- if y'know what I mean -- when he found out of a bunch of them would be walking around scantily clad and would later offer their "services"). The curse of lycanthropy was laid upon him during his third trip.

After the March, he received word of a clan of vampires that was wreaking havoc in the countryside. Byrandin actually has little against the undead (by now, I'm sure you can tell he is rather "progressive" in his views), but these vampires were harming innocent people; that had to be stopped.

After wiping out every last vampire, Byrandin heard growling in the bushes. Before he could raise his sword in defense, a ferocious wereboar tackled him and nearly mauled him to death. He struggled to fend off the beast. Eventually, he managed to thrust his sword into its chest. It turned out to be a middle aged Breton man (wereboars revert form after death, right?). In horror, Byrandin noticed the bite marks on his arm. I must find a temple, he thought. There had to have been an old Auri-El temple somewhere. However, the Templar was bleeding out. His Restoration spells helped, but he still collapsed unconcious on the ground.

Upon awakening, Byrandin had little memory of the night before. When he looked at the dead Breton next to him, it all came back to him. He anxiously looked at his injuries again, realizing it was to late; he had been turned.

Back in Summerset, Byrandin faced restless nights and a clouded mind. One night, he was ambushed by a large group of bandits (are there bandits in Summerset?). Realizing his changes of winning were slim, he utilized his only option -- he transformed for the first time. He felt the intense power flowing through him as he rended the bodies of the highwaymen. He feasted upon their corpses. Upon reverting, Byrandin felt queasy. He had just eaten someone. However, his mind was now clear. Besides, he was stronger now! Surely the deaths of a few bandits was okay? This was good. Now, nobody else would attacked by these bandits.

By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

Thanks! I didn't want it to become too much like an actual story (though I might put it in the Stories section), so it ends kind of abruptly, but I'm still updating it.
