Faction & Race:
Aldmeri Dominion (Khajiit)
Firstname - Neytsana

Surname - /

Title - None earned so far, and she is not the type to give herself one.

Sex - Female

Race - Khajiit

Age - 18

Occupation - Thief, on her way to become an assassin.

Faction - Aldmeri Dominion

Appearance - She is 5'9'' tall and weighs about 145lbs. Neytsana isn't very muscular, but she has some arm- and leg-muscles, due to traveling (she prefers to walk rather than take carriages, exploring is one of the few things she enjoys) and bow training, the bow being her favorite weapon. She has very dark fur, even in the light it appears almost pitch black, which makes her green eyes stand out even more. Her aunt always made jokes about her turning nocturnal, because there would be no way people wouldn't spot her during day time. Because Neytsana got bored of her plain black fur during the age of 16, she let a green pattern be made all over her body. Due to her occupation she's mostly dressed in light armor, which she refuses to take off, except for when she washes it as well as herself. There are some small scars on her body, leftovers from fights or traps she couldn't avoid.

Personality - Neytsana is pretty pessimistic, and that comes, at least if you'd ask her, from her honesty towards herself. She would never pretend that something is good when in fact it isn't. That this attitude is the reason why she always only sees the bad in people hasn't occurred to her yet. All that is making her rather reserved or brutally honest towards others. Sarcasm is one of the few things that make her laugh and happy, at least for a couple of seconds, but her favorite thing to do would be getting up and starting to explore. Though she doesn't sympathize with people very often, she's strongly against pointless cruelty, for example hurting (innocent and not-vampire) children. Pointless cruelty is next to rape something that will piss her of a lot, even though she's rather hard to really get worked up. Her biggest flaw might be her stubbornness, but she also isn't that gentle, often grumpy, self-hating and very secretive. Though she is distrustful she is also very faithful at the same time, her other two best features are being sly and almost as curious as a child that wants to find out about everything this world has to offer.

Social Background - Her father was Ri'Khaat (Do'Khaat during his warrior times), the leader of a group of travelling merchants, an experienced, elderly Khajiit with a slight mischievous look in the eyes. He was barely ever seen without Shana, his wife, an alchemist, a rather calm, motherly healer-type. Their family came neither out of aristocracy nor were related to the manes, but they were a respected warrior-family, though they're also known for their dark skills. The whole dark part of the family didn't come from her parents, but mostly from her aunt and uncle, who were very well known for the things they could do and did.

Best Memory - Her best memory is actually a rather early memory. She remembers her mother singing to her, her father saying something from the corner of their tent and then her mother again, laughing carefree. Neytsana is pretty sure, that this is actually her earliest memory as well.

Worst Memory - When she was eight years old, there were problems with Skooma in their camp, just before the night the group wanted to take the last ship from Dawnstar back to Senchal, passing Morrowind and the Black Marsh. Their caravan was one of the last ones traveling across Tamriel, though the war was slowly coming closer, which is why they wanted to leave Skyrim the next day anyway. All the racial hate stopped the Nord-Soldiers from asking who really sold the Skooma in Dawnstar and they just unleashed it upon their group, killing everybody except Neytsana and her aunt, who escaped with the ship. This is actually the memory that affected her the most and this is the reason, why she had almost lost her old self at the age of eighteen, luckily she was able to keep her curiosity and loyalty.

Skills - Neytsana is really good at sneaking and alchemy, okay at lockpicking and not that good at pickpocketing. Right now she's off to learn everything about assassinating.

Challenges for the Character - She hasn't faced any life-threads yet (if you ignore her worst memory), but she has the personal struggle of not becoming ruthless every day. There's a small, silent hope she has for herself, that one day, she might be able to ease up and let go of all the dark memories.

Birthsign - The Thief

Religious Views - She has pretty much lost all her faith, though she does have some respect for religions that haven't gone totally mad and started sacrificing people and such.

Politics Views - She is rather happy to be in the Aldmeri-Dominion, since there are no humans involved in it. She can't really remember any Bretons or Redguards, but she has a very absolute opinion on Nords. She doesn't really care about Argonians and Orcs and never understood what was going on with the Altmer/Bosmer against the Dunmer, but to be honest, she didn't care either.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay guys, this is it for Neytsana so far. There is some more stuff about her in the "Character Building: 100 Questions!"-topic, if you want to, go check it out. I'm also planning on writing some fan-fiction, including her backstory, which is why I didn't tell that story so extensively. I'll maybe even add some pictures =)

If I happen to find one that fits her (and is open and stuff), then sure, why not.

Quite a great character, Nikura! I like how the cruel event in her life not only affected her perspective on life, but also gave her this internal bitterness that she struggles to resist. Although she may have a cold view on the world, it appears she conciously wishes it wasn't so, and that makes it intriguing to see what she may do in certain situations and when she might open up or when she might stay cautious.

There's also a bit of mystery to her background, namely involving the "dark part" of her family which involves her surviving aunt. I suspect it's related to her new path in life, but I suppose that may be revealed in time. Always liked a bit of mystery, it keeps readers and audience in wonder.

Anyways, looking forward to seeing what you have in store next for Neytsana!

Thanks a lot, I'm actually very proud of her, since she's the first character I've really thought through.

I'll be on a class trip for three days now and I'm planning on writing her first story, but I'm afraid that you'll have to wait about the dark part - it's probably not going to be revealed (or clarified) just yet. Maybe on an ending note, we will see :).

Of course! When dealing with secrets there is no need to rush. But I'll keep an eye out for your stories nonetheless!

A good bio though the backstory could use some expansion.

Also you said "nor are they related to the manes", the manes aren't a family they are given the position if they are born during the mane lunar lattice.

Also what subspecies is she? if you like I can link you a list of them if you don't already know them.

I'm planning on writing stories for her and didn't want to give away what happens. I also didn't actually mean "a family of manes", I ment there was no mane in their family that they would be known for =D.

Though I thought of making her an Ohmes I decided to go with a regular Suthay-raht =D. I actually found out about the different subspecies just three days ago, I hope to see them in TESO a lot, especially one or another Senche *-*

Always quite cool to see a character 'in development', from a skills point of view. Most char's have a defined skillset and don't seem to evolve through RP. I think the whole racist Nord's thing is a little extreme personally, but I guess when war's brewing they might act differently. You mention armor, does she carry any weapons?

I'm sure you'l find an Rp that catches your eye on here, there are always a few going on. Anyhow, a good character Nikura, I'll keep an eye out for her backstory.

Yeah I thought about the whole TESO and war aspect when I was developing her, she she is supposed to develope herself during the game, because everybody starts to play with a character who isn't perfect, but I also didn't want her to not be able to do anything at all. Her primary weapon is her bow, since she prefers to not let her enemies come close.

I'm writing the prologue to her story right now, I'll post it as soon as I'm back home.
