The Life of Sir Kenneth R. Russell III

(A big thank you goes out to Maxxrocker and Quib for helping me write this story and for Maxxrocker allowing me to use his Characters.)

Prologue:

This is a story of Sir Kenny before the war and events of the Elder Scrolls Online. Kenneth had been bed ridden for many days after avenging the death of his sister (see Character Bio of Sir Kenneth R. Russell III.) Kenneth had been tramatized at the violent loss of his sister and drained when he lost emotional control and discovered his true magical potential.
The time is 2E 572 and Kenneth was only 14 his parents had been traveling far and wide looking for a Dunmer named Kaaos.

And so this is where are story begins…

Chapter 1: The Dunmer’s apprentice.

In the distance the white gold tower could be seen from the Breton nobles carriage, the evening sky seemed clear and peaceful and had a beautiful purple hue to it as the sun set on Cyrodiil.
Sir Richard Russell and Lady Donna Russell sat in worry and neither had spoken a majority of the trip and they seemed at loss for hope, Richard held her in his arms reassuringly but he himself was full of sorrow. They feared for their middle son, even though they had had 9 children 7 boys and 2 girls, they had lost their youngest daughter, and did not want to lose another child.

Donna shivered out of fear “Oh my dear what if he can’t help our boy what if Kenneth can’t be saved? What if he says that this is a curse placed on our son for our family’s sins?” “Then we will keep looking, even if it turns out to be a curse, there must be someone in Tamriel that can help our boy.” Richards voice even in fear was bold and calm, a voice which would soothe a ship full of sailors on a stormy, dark, sea. “But we’ve looked everywhere, by the Divine’s grace we found this Kaaos man, but what if he can’t help teach our boy to control this… this power that seemed to drain him of all life?” “The Divines have brought us this far my lady, we must trust in them.” Richard went back to looking out the window. Up ahead was an old run down tavern,
Many horses were tied down next to some hay in the front, the entrance looked a little less then welcoming as did the whole building. This is what was left of the Long Hoof inn, where the letter from Kaaos told the noble parents where to meet him. The road there had seemed clear and safe, but the tavern was surrounded by thick trees and brush, save the entrance, and thick smoke crept out of its chimney which was slightly leaning as if it were going to fall onto the rest of the tavern. Some windows were cracked or broken, and many figures could be seen moving around, but the windows were so dirty that one could hardly make out any specific shapes. “Defiantly not Lord Walton wine shop.” Murmured Lady Donna. Rick chuckled “Right we should put on the hoods now, Driver you can stop the carriage.” The carriage came to a halt. “let’s make our way on foot, keep your rings in your pouch okay, put mine in there too, no need for anyone here to know who we are.” The couple pulled two dark green hoods over their heads and exited the carriage. As they made their way to the Long Hoof they heard many sounds of men singing songs and jeering, men laughing and shouting. “I’m not so sure of this.” Donna hesitated only a few feet from the door now. “It’s for our son my love, come now we’ve waited so long for help now let’s get in there in find it.” Rick held her hand, she took in a deep breath and walked forward with him.
As they opened the door they were greeted with a loud “WELCOME TO THE LONG HOOF INN! MY NAME IS CORNUS! ARE YOU HERE FOR A ROOM? OR SHALL I SEND A MAIDEN ALONG WITH SOME ALE FOR YA?” the sounds they heard from the outside were only louder on the inside Richard yelled over the music and shouting “WE ARE HERE TO MEET A FRIEND HE GOES BY THE NAME OF-…” “THEY ARE WITH ME CORNUS, SEND A MAIDEN ALONG WITH YOUR FINEST BREW THEY’VE HAD A LONG JOURNEY AND COULD USE SOME LIQUED RELAXATION!”

Richard found himself looking into the eyes of Kaaos. “please sir this way it’s much quieter back here in the corner.” Kaaos turned and nodded to a young man who had been talking with a pretty giggling girl at the bar, the young man nodded back and went back to his conversation. Richard led Donna and followed Kaaos into the corner booth and sat opposite him. “Hungry? It’s all on me if you are they have some very good cheese here, not sure where Cornus gets it all from.” Kaaos looked at them both and smiled very friendly, as if to say your worries will end here. “No thank you, the ale you ordered us should be just fine.” Rick said in a bit of a tense tone. Kaaos looked him directly in the eyes “suit yourself, ah here comes the drink maiden now.” The girl sat the drinks before them Richard grasped his and drank, donna held hers and sipped at it. “now!” said Kaaos coming up from a long drink. “In your letter you said you desperately need a teacher for your boy, now I’m no fool, there are plenty of teachers in high rock that could teach your boy magic.” Donna interrupted him “I have little trust for the magic teachers in high rock, even our familys privet tutor for all of our children is not from high rock.” “and why is that madam?” “these self proclaimed ‘magic’ teachers usually come with the best recommendations and experience… but they also come self equipped with a political agenda. You must have heard how tedious Breton politics can be? They all-…” “what my wife is trying to say is, we’ve heard you are the best,
especially in this area, when I witnessed what my son was capable of I… I had a mixed feeling of pride, and yet fear. But the fear took control quickly when I realized he had no control of himself.” Kaaos looked at them and took another sip of his ale. “ maybe if you were to elaborate the situation, I would better understand and be able to truly help you with the root of his problem.” “Well…” Richard began, the event’s were still fresh, and it still hurt to think or even talk about it. “Well it all started on the eve of a dreadful storm that had passed over our land, me and my wife noticed that our middle son, Kenneth, and Youngest…” he hesitated “Ellies were missing. The storm did not let up for what felt like an eternity and when it did I organized a search party of men and soldiers loyal to the Russell family. We searched the forest nearest us, hoping they hadn’t gone out to far and were stuck when the storm had come. We were almost right. We found my boy he had taken refuge under some large boulders, he told us him and his sister were separated, and as I began to send him home… I saw the body of my daughter, a bear had torn her to shreds.” Richard pauses fighting back tears. “Kenneth grabbed hold of my sword and ran, he managed to slip away from the search party. We split up looking in trees and bushes, but we heard Kenneth before we found him. I remember I was about to head back to where I had found him, when I heard the dying roar of a monstrous animal along with the shouting of a child. When I got to where the sound had originated from… my eyes were bewildered. There stood my boy… my precious son with flames bursting from his hands burning the bear that had killed his sister, and all around him the grass the bushes the trees, they were all set aflame. When he lowered his arms the flames all went out, he stood for a second then collapsed. I ran over and held him I thought I had just lost two children on the same day. But he coughed up a little and kept breathing and his chest would rise and fall. We brought him home and he has been bed ridden ever since.” Donna held Ricks hand, she had not been able to fight her tears and they could be seen streaming down her cheeks. She managed to speak “We j-j-just are s-so worried about our little boy.” Kaaos looked at them both with compassion in his eyes and said “I know you are worried, but do not fret your child has power and with that the necessity to learn to control it, he should recover sooner than you think and when he does he’ll need to be ready to train, he must be calm like water, free like wind, passionate like fire, tough like stone.” Richard and Donna looked at one another with smiles of hope then looked back to Kaaos. “That is a lesson for him though I guess.” Kaaos continued. “I will be advising you to take on my apprentice as his tutor they have many troubles in common and many wounds that need healing I belief that they can truly help one another. Your son shall be fine he-…” “So you won’t be teaching him?” Donna interrupted. “that’s why we came here in the first place for your help!” “madam im afraid I don’t have the time to help your boy but trust me my apprentice, Requies, is a good boy, and he’s a Breton to which will look better on you for having a native to high rock.” Donna was furious “but I told you how I feel about Breton mages they always have-…” “A political agenda yes I know madam but Requies was not born of noble blood, nor does he have any connection to another noble Breton family.” Rick held donna. “My love maybe Kaaos is right, having a Breton for a tutor would be for the best.” She looked into Ricks eyes, she knew how important the families political image was, she nodded her head and accepted. “Now as I was saying” Kaaos sipped on his drink again. “Your son shall be fine he just someone who understands his pain. You, as parents, must believe in what he is doing, and what he is capable of.” He smiled again as if to silently say ‘trust me’ then waved to the man at the bar they had seen when they walked in “Requies come here lad I’d like you to meet my friends here.” As the man walked over Rick and Donna got a good look at him, he wore fine clothing and a hood which was down reveling his face and long white hair, he had several scars on his face he was shorter the Sir Richard but taller then Lady Donna. His overcoat seemed a little tattered, but all in all he gave off a very good vibe, that Donna picked up on right away she held out her hand for him to shake it. “Lady Donna D.L. Russell.” Rick stood up too “Sir Richard C. Russell.” Requies shook both their hands then sat next to Kaaos who spook up after introductions. “Requies I’d like you to meet the people you’ll be living with for a while, or however long it takes.” “What do you mean!” Requies said “Do you remember the letter I received concerning the noble Breton boy, the one I said seemed to have a lot of magical potential?” “Yes… I do recall.” “well these are his parents they’ve come to us for aid, I want you to go back and train him, I am far to busy to take that sort of time to help him but I do belief you are ready to take on a student of your own.” Requies looked at Rick and Donna and asked “Can I at least know the whole story?” “Yes…” Kaaos said not wanting rick to have to re-tell the details “but it’s best I tell you.”
Kaaos told Requies what Rick had told him, of the beast that had been turned to mere ashes by the power of a small boy. After he finished Requies looked at them both. “When I was younger I lost my mother when she was giving birth to my sister… then my father many years later in a tragic attack on my family’s farm, your boy will be finding it hard to move on when he wakes. I know it was hard for me to move on from my mothers death…” Requies pondered a while longer. “Ok… I’ll do it, and not because Kaaos simply told me too, but because your boy is going to need more than a teacher.” “Oh thank you!” Rick burst out in tears, and leaned over the table to hug Requies. “If there is anything you need or will need when we return home please do not hesitate, our house is your house and our family yours.” Kaaos smiled “It’s settled then, pack your things my boy, Looks like your heading back to High Rock.”
The moon hung high in the sky and the pup had all but gone quiet and dark as Requies’ things were loaded onto the carriage he turned and said his goodbyes to Kaaos who simply said, “We will meet again soon.” They got into the carriage, and as the driver cracked his whip, they were on their way back to High Rock. As they drove away a hawks cry was heard as it dived down and snatched a mouse off the ground for it’s dinner.

I don't usually go to the library but now I did. That was quite a long read but all I have to tell you is where is the action. Maybe it's the fact that your character is a noble that bores me but there is too much talking sitting and so on. Every one wants a fight blood to be spilled for a fair maiden and what not. I think in the next part of this you should add a bit more action to it =)

She managed to speak “We j-j-just are s-so worried about our little boy.” Kaaos looked at them both with compassion in his eyes and said “I know you are worried, but do not fret your child has power and with that the necessity to learn to control it, he should recover sooner than you think and when he does he’ll need to be ready to train, he must be calm like water, free like wind, passionate like fire, tough like stone.” Richard and Donna looked at one another with smiles of hope then looked back to Kaaos. “That is a lesson for him though I guess.” Kaaos continued. “I will be advising you to take on my apprentice as his tutor they have many troubles in common and many wounds that need healing I belief that they can truly help one another. Your son shall be fine he-…” “So you won’t be teaching him?” Donna interrupted. “that’s why we came here in the first place for your help!” “madam im afraid I don’t have the time to help your boy but trust me my apprentice, Requies, is a good boy, and he’s a Breton to which will look better on you for having a native to high rock.” Donna was furious “but I told you how I feel about Breton mages they always have-…” “A political agenda yes I know madam but Requies was not born of noble blood, nor does he have any connection to another noble Breton family.” Rick held donna. “My love maybe Kaaos is right, having a Breton for a tutor would be for the best.” She looked into Ricks eyes, she knew how important the families political image was, she nodded her head and accepted. “Now as I was saying” Kaaos sipped on his drink again. “Your son shall be fine he just someone who understands his pain. You, as parents, must believe in what he is doing, and what he is capable of.” He smiled again as if to silently say ‘trust me’ then waved to the man at the bar they had seen when they walked in “Requies come here lad I’d like you to meet my friends here.” As the man walked over Rick and Donna got a good look at him, he wore fine clothing and a hood which was down reveling his face and long white hair, he had several scars on his face he was shorter the Sir Richard but taller then Lady Donna. His overcoat seemed a little tattered, but all in all he gave off a very good vibe, that Donna picked up on right away she held out her hand for him to shake it. “Lady Donna D.L. Russell.” Rick stood up too “Sir Richard C. Russell.” Requies shook both their hands then sat next to Kaaos who spook up after introductions. “Requies I’d like you to meet the people you’ll be living with for a while, or however long it takes.” “What do you mean!” Requies said “Do you remember the letter I received concerning the noble Breton boy, the one I said seemed to have a lot of magical potential?” “Yes… I do recall.” “well these are his parents they’ve come to us for aid, I want you to go back and train him, I am far to busy to take that sort of time to help him but I do belief you are ready to take on a student of your own.” Requies looked at Rick and Donna and asked “Can I at least know the whole story?” “Yes…” Kaaos said not wanting rick to have to re-tell the details “but it’s best I tell you.”
Kaaos told Requies what Rick had told him, of the beast that had been turned to mere ashes by the power of a small boy. After he finished Requies looked at them both. “When I was younger I lost my mother when she was giving birth to my sister… then my father many years later in a tragic attack on my family’s farm, your boy will be finding it hard to move on when he wakes. I know it was hard for me to move on from my mothers death…” Requies pondered a while longer. “Ok… I’ll do it, and not because Kaaos simply told me too, but because your boy is going to need more than a teacher.” “Oh thank you!” Rick burst out in tears, and leaned over the table to hug Requies. “If there is anything you need or will need when we return home please do not hesitate, our house is your house and our family yours.” Kaaos smiled “It’s settled then, pack your things my boy, Looks like your heading back to High Rock.”
The moon hung high in the sky and the pup had all but gone quiet and dark as Requies’ things were loaded onto the carriage he turned and said his goodbyes to Kaaos who simply said, “We will meet again soon.” They got into the carriage, and as the driver cracked his whip, they were on their way back to High Rock. As they drove away a hawks cry was heard as it dived down and snatched a mouse off the ground for it’s dinner.


Also good job overall keep writing.

Do not worry the action will come. This is just the first chapter we have to build up to the action. But fair warning this is the tale of sir kenny as a child, when he was still young, there will be fighting and killing but this is a character orgin story.
