This is a Role-Playing character only.



First name: Thelis

Surname: No-Name (mockingly)

Title: Ranger, Apprentice of Hiervo

Sex: Male

Race: Imperial

Age: 25

Occupation: Ranger

Faction: Neutral

Relatives: None alive.

Appearance: A slightly shorter than average Imperial, Thelis has brown hair, brown eyes and no facial hair. He has a semi muscular build, which gives him a harmless appearance.

Equipment: A bow, throwing knives, daggers, mottled cloak of brown and green (for the forest) or grey and white (for snow).

Height – 5’5”

Weight – 125 pounds.

Build – Slender.

Personality: Thelis is a funny, calm person. He sometimes has trouble keeping a straight face when he plays jokes on his friends. He also has a dry, direct way of talking that is full of sarcasm. He is very dedicated to his job yet feels conflicted knowing about the Tharn’s Daedra worship. He is extremely loyal to his friends and will do anything for them. Just don’t mess with his coffee or friends.

Backstory: Thelis’s mother died giving birth to him and his father died trying to take down a group of evil necromancers and storm mages. Hiervo, who had heard the screams of his mother, brought Thelis to Kvatch. He lived in the castle ward for 15 years not knowing that it was Hiervo who rescued him. Around his 15th birthday he was given the option to be Hiervo’s apprentice and train as a Ranger. He accepted and trained under Hiervo for 5 years learning how to shoot a bow, fight with knives/daggers, throw knives, move unseen, fight unarmed, track, hunt, and ride a horse.

Best Memory: Becoming a full-fledged Ranger.

Worst Memory: Thinking he would not be adequate enough to help people without Hiervo’s help.

Skills: Archery*, Throwing*, Sneak*, Knife/Dagger-fighting*, Climbing, Horsemanship*, Hunting, Tracking*, Speech, Singing, Juggling.
*=Major Skill

Companions: Hiervo, his former mentor. Arrow, a small, shaggy, brown horse that is at least as fast as an arrow, hence the name. Arrow has amazing speed, endurance, knows tons of commands, and is very sure-footed. Auden an Imperial knight that was an orphan along with Thelis, he used to be a rival (when the two were younger and castle wards together) but is now Thelis’s best friend. He is also one of the best swordsmen in Cyrodiil. Thelis also has a black and white dog-named Frostnight; Frostnight is smart, energetic and has helped Thelis in numerous missions, mostly when he has disguised himself as a bard.

Challenges for the character: Thelis has trouble keeping his calm when his friends are in trouble. He would sooner rush blindly into a castle full of hundreds of enemy soldiers by himself then think a plan through when his friends are in danger, thus it is up to his other friends to get him to calm down. He has trouble trusting others. Thelis also has a tendency to not respect some figures of authority and will not listen to those he does not respect. Thelis has a deep hatred of necromancers and necromancy and a distrust of the Destruction School of Magic, especially the storm path of it, due to his father getting killed by necromancers and storm mages. Thelis is also prone to short-term addiction, especially of skooma and alcohol, from briefly being a slave of a bandit group. Whenever possible Thelis will try to shoot to injure, so that he can capture, question and turn in his enemy, if they are thought to be guilty, to the nearest city with a secure jail. This leads to him moving slower than he would by himself and having to feed more people.

Birthsign: The Shadow

Religious Views: Follows the Nine Divines, loosely.

Political Views: Conflicted, he protects the Empire but does not agree with the Tharn’s decision to worship Daedra. He wants peace between the three alliances and peace on Tamriel.




A ranger holds the life of 24 men in his quiver.

Very cool! :) I like it - seems like he might be TOO perfect, though. Maybe list some flaws that he has? After all, no one is perfect. ^^

Thank you, I'm just trying to think of a flaw Will has, besides not being able to draw.

That's not a flaw, haha. Maybe something like he is not very trusting of others, and does not cooperate with others. Additionally, make something that hampers his combat skills, something to make him not so god-mode-like.

Yea, I know. In the books though, Will actually does have trouble a lot, although him, Halt, and Horace make quite the team.

Hey @"Ri'Do'Ja", getting back to you on that PM you sent me.

He actually seems fairly "human" himself, with a persona of humor, sarcasm, doubt, and temperment. I think what may make him seem a bit "too perfect" would be the last paragraph titled "Other." This paragraph sums up all the amazing things he can do, so it's like an extended and more detailed version of his "Skills" which you've already listed. It may ultimately be unnecessary, and may make reader feel as if he is flawless even if he isn't.

On a side note, 160 pounds for a 5'5" character may actually be a bit on the larger side rather than slender. You may want to reduce his weight by 30-40 pounds.

Lastly, while it's good to have an inspiration for your character, make sure your character is different enough so that it is your own and stands on its own. While you have added many things to fit him into Tamriel, such as the mention of Kvatch and the current political climate in Cyrodiil-- there's also many similarities to Will Treaty which seem a bit forced. Things such as his addiction to coffee and skill at playing the Mandola bear perhaps a too close resembelance to your character's inspiration, as they're rather unique traits and so stand out a bit more obviously. I'm sure with a bit of brainstorming you can think up your own unique quirks for your character!

Ok, I understand. Maybe Thelis can juggle really well or enjoys traveling and sleeping in the great outdoors.

Two arrows in the air
Two arrows leaving lair

Two arrows to find their way
Two arrows to let them pray

Two arrows bringing death
Two arrows with every breath
