Bosmer
Name: Foriel Barkwing (Ri’Do’Ja)

Race: Bosmer

Age: 25

Origin: A small border city between Valenwood and Eleswyr, Torvol, 15, he elected to go to Elden Root and live with cousin.

Birth-sign: The Shadow

Occupation: Spy, Scout

Relatives: His parents in Alinor that serve as ambassadors to Queen Ayrenn, he rarely talks to them, but gets frequent letters. Mom’s name is Nilin; Dad’s name is Celegth. He is an only child who for a few years was raised by his older cousin, Thaer, whom he views as a father figure. His best friends are two Khajiit, J’Dato and Jo’Rak who helped pass the short lived Khajiit Trials and get his outsider name, Ri’Da’Jo, which he uses in most aspects of his life.

Brief description of appearance: Ri’Do’Ja is by all means a normal looking Bosmer, if a little short. But, if you look closely you might see two quivers underneath his cloak, along with a satchel full of all types of potions. And the hard, intelligent look in his eyes.

Weaponry: For daytime missions, a glass bow, sword and dagger and for nighttime missions, an ebony bow, sword and dagger.

Armour/Clothing: Whatever he needs to blend in, when scouting at night glass armour painted black, in the day regular glass armour. When spying, he takes on any appearance he needs… poor farmer, rich bachelor, etc.

Religious Point of View: Ri’Do’Ja worships Y’iffre although not as devout as he should. He believes that his ancestors have repaid the gods enough and that he can now go on his own path.

Loves: Antique Bows, fast horses, his friendships, and the twang of a bowstring

Hates: Liars, traitors, snow, the Ebonheart Pack, assassins

Strengths: Ri’Do’Ja is smart, loyal, and brave. He is an excellent archer and a highly competent swordsman. He also has a gift for staying unseen.

Weaknesses: Ri’Do’Ja is a little arrogant, loses focus easily sometimes and has a little bit of a temper.

Companions: 5 years ago while journeying across Eleswyr Ri’Do’Ja saved the life of a Senche-Raht who vowed to be his loyal steed ever since. He also owns a black horse named midnight.

Notable relationships: Ri’Do’Ja ‘s parents are ambassadors to Queen Ayrenn. He has not seen them in 5 years although receives and writes numerous letters. He does not have any siblings.
He is close with his cousin Thaer who he views as a father figure.
His two best friends J’Dato and Jo’Rak mean the world to him and constantly join him on his scouting trips and spy missions.

Rumours (true and untrue):

1. Ri’Do’Ja is the Bosmer vigilante, The Black Arrow.
2. He hates Daedra and tries to destroy all who consort with them.
3. Whenever he takes a life he meditates to figure out if his reasons were just.
4. All of the letters he has ever gotten from his parents, he puts in a locked chest with only 1 key.
5. His favorite colors are black, blue, and white.
6. He carries a journal around wherever he goes.
7. Some believe that the reason he is so good with archery is that he is half Daedra.
8. He only drinks clear water, and meat that he, J’Dato, or Jo’Rak have hunted, as he is terrified of getting poisoned.
9. The reason he hates assassins is he a member of the Dark Brotherhood tried to kill him when he was traveling to Elden Root.
10. At the age of 15 he could shoot an arrow 200 meters into an apple and knock an arrow out of air.

Nice and simple, good job.

Also, remind me where the Black Arrow is from? It's at the back of my brain but I can't seem to remember it and it's really started to annoy me.

I don't know, maybe a piece of fan fiction?

The vigilante of the book the Black Arrow is a Dunmer, I also don't think the book was written in TESO's time because you can meet said vigilante in Morrowind inside one of the Dunmer strongholds.

Also why is his name Ri'Do'Ja? Khajiit only take one prefix not three like Ja'zargo or something (that's a Khajiit name from Skyrim if you didn't know) and why would he take a Khajiit name if raised a Bosmer?

He has three prefixes because it sounds cool to me (I know that it is not the most RP reason, but true nonetheless) and mean three of the things I want to be in TESO ( http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Khajiit_Names ) Ri meaning Status often tribal leader (which could be interpreted as guild and/or alliance leader), Do meaning warrior, and Ja meaning Bachelor, Young Adult. The reason he has a Khajiit name is because he was the only person to pass the short lived Khajiit Trials, in which an outsider (other race) would be tested to see if they had what it takes to be a true ally of the Khajiit race. He is respected by both races for passing and has a say in some aspects of Khajiit culture.

Since the Khajiit Trials were short lived, and only happened in one place, where all of the records were when there was a fire in the Alchemy Store nextdoor the building the records where in burned down and the records were lost. The records might have remade but as the fire happened on the eve of war, everyone agreed it was best to focus on the war and come back to the trials afterwards, sadly though the idea was forgotten.

Also what war? a war would not affect writing stuff on paper. I'm afraid this bio is very lore breaking because you made most of the important stuff up.

Thumbs down.

Oh yeah that one. Also you do realize that if the records were destroyed he would not be recognized as an 'ally to the Khajiit race' any more right? except for maybe a few people.

Again I must say thumbs down, I apologies but this is a rather poorly done bio that breaks quite a bit of lore and sounds a little Mary Sue to me.

The few people being his best friends, mount, parents, cousin and Queen Ayrenn. And I am sorry if it sounds Mary Sue to you but, this is my first one and I just wanted to get some baseline readings.

And one last thing, Khajiit and Bosmer are almost natural enemys in TES lore so why would a Senche-Raht serve him as a mount? also following on that there wouldn't be a border village where they live peacefully nor would he have likely made Khajiit friends or have been admitted for these trials of yours.

Sorry if I'm sounding too harsh or whatever but that's my opinion.

The Senche-Raht would serve him as a mount because Ri'Do'Ja saved his life. His parents were ambassadors and took him on trips to border villages, his Khajiit friends are the sons of two prominent Khajiit ambassadors. And overall thank you, I ultimately respect your opinion and will use it to better my next character.
