Okay I was reminded in a thread posted by Sir Kenny that I had always wanted to RP or have a character that was a Dwemer or Falmer (of not so-blind variety) and so i figured what better place than here than to lay that out. I am by far not the most knowledgable in the lore and it would help if I could get fact checks and what not you guys. I also would like input on other aspect of the character.

I already have a bit picked out. His name would be Rzaik. He is a Dwemer from Raldbthar from a period pre-dating the Aetherium Wars. It would be cool to have him be half-snow elf, and I mean like true half snow elf to where he would look like a really tall blue-eyed dunmer.

He would start off as a miner and skilled craftsman in Blackreach where he would be amongst the first to find Aetherium. He would stash away a rather large amount of it for himself. He could go and forge himself a dwemer set of armor and a signature weapon that was inlaid with Aetherium. This event he finds out just how powerful the stuff really was. After this he returns to the leaders of his city of Raldbthar to show them his creation. He would be elevated to a position of power at his findings. The leaders would go on to forge their own weapons and the Aetherium wars start. Rzaik ashamed at what he caused flees to Solsthiem. He becomes the Architect of Nchardak. Here he stays and oversees a building of an army of automations that would later be used at the battle of Red Mountain.

I wouldnt want him to be at the battle of red mountain as this would mean that he would disappear like the rest of the Dwemer. I want to some how figure out a way to live through it.

So this is where you guys come in.

What should his Weapon be, A hammer, a sword, staff, or maybe some kind of gun looking thing? or something not said.

How does he live through the disappearance of the Dwemer?

Is he evil or good?

Does he think he is Evil or Good?

what is his personality like, arogant or friendly, outspoken or quiet, ruthless or caring? Or some other personality traits I didnt think of.

I want him to be powerful, like borderline god modingly powerful. But he cant be with out flaws. What should be his extant of power and what should his weakness(es) be?

Just over all critiques or suggestions welcome. I think this would be fun if we could get everyone throwing ideas out to flesh him out. and when we are done I will write a story about him. And I will more than likely need help with that too...


And one more thing, it would be cool if we could get a female Dwemer survivor too... just sayin' if any body would want to try that or help with that too.

What about an arrogant,staff-wielding, outspoken, and about the Power he might could be a scientist that studies forbidden knowledge, dwemer. About the weakness he could love gold so much that he is very greedy and does all he can to get more gold. I would find that char interesting ;)

ah my friend :s, the thing about the Dwemer is that they are a mystery! they all (apart from one i think) pretty much 'disappeared' I don't think an individual really had a choice in the matter. we don't know much about the Dwemer, personally for me i love that theme! we don't know much about them and all they have left are there automations! i think if you do roleplay this, it won't be canon but have fun doing so if you so choose ^-^. the questions you have asked you must answer if you truely want to try this. there is no point others answering personal questions like his morality and then you to RP him. the character has to be personal to you!

I actually don't intend on him being in an R.P. unless its an R.P. from the first era. And if he were in Oblivion (you know for funsies) wouldn't he have avoided it? It was all Dwemer on Nirn? Just trying to remember. And It won't be canon, as most things we do in the forums aren't canon. It exists with its rules but its not official. And there are ways to work around things hat we don't know. And I want people's suggestions and ultimately it will be my choise as to his morality and personality. But good points Quib. And Alator greed for gold seems abit out of place to me for whatever reason.

Your dwemer/snow elf would have to be VERY old. There was more than a 400 year gap between when aetherium was found and the disapearance of the dwemer. Also the battle of red mountain was not where the dwemer disappeared; it was during the war of the first council. The story does have a lot of potential though. Just try not to confuse events. Good Luck!
