Faction & Race:
Ebonheart Pact (Argonian)
Name: Virgil; Virgilius

Full Title: Virgil the Snake

Race: Argonian

Birthsign: The Lord

Skills:  Virgil is an intellectual person, of calm attitude.  He is a prodigy with combat engineering and siege mechanics, though he has also had meager experience with a blade.

Occupation: Dwemer Scholar Turned Engineer

Faction: Ebonheart Pact / Hist Knights

Religious Views: Reveres the Hist, but had turned to Mara for help earlier in life.

Appearance: Despite many Argonians having horns, spikes, or ridges on their heads, Virgil has a completely smooth head. He is covered in a set of snake-like glossy black scales and has a very slightly thinner and longer head than most Argonians. He has deep-set violet eyes, and his maw is decorated with several rows of razor-sharp teeth, the features of the Naga clan. The features come together giving him a very serpentine appearance, hence his title, "Snake".

Worst Memory: Witnessing his father's murder.

Best Memory(s): He values every excavation equally, and is fond of logging these exhilarating adventures.

Greatest Challenges: Virgil is not skilled with any weapon particularly well and is often forced to escape from combat. Virgil must overcome his foolhardy attitude and fear of failure in order to hold his new position of temporary leadership well.

Detailed Backstory for Those Interested Below



Background;Childhood: Virgil was born to highwaymen; the product of two uncaring thieves. Virgil was a hatchling barely of walking age when he was abandoned at the doorstep of a poor farmer's homestead. The farm was located in South West Cyrodil, and was run by a Colovian family. They gave him the name, "Virgilius" or Virgil for short. He lived a relatively happy life until about the age of twenty when a band of marauders came and killed his foster father and siblings. He was left to care for the farm and his mother until she too, perished, under the harshness of the time. He moved East toward the Black Marsh to learn more of his people, and began an apprenticeship with a group of scholars to develop new skills.

Background;Adulthood: Virgil soon became a renowned anthropologist and primarily studied the Dwemer. He eventually moved completely to his native land, which he had come to admire, and settled down for a time. He began delving more into his people's culture and the Hist. He learned of their origins and their connections to the Argonians and he revered them the same as any marsh brother or sister. He would often take charge in his expeditions and lead combat alongside his mercenaries against the Dwemer automatons. He developed skills for combat combined with his knowledge of machines and technology from the Dwemer and became a greatly skilled combat engineer and siege mechanic.

Background;Present/ESO Time: Virgil learned of an ancient and now disbanded order of Argonian warriors who would rise in secret when the Hist and the Kingdom of Argonia needed them. When the war broke out and Molag Bal began his conquest, he pleaded to the Ebonheart Pact rulers for the funding to re-establish this order and take the charge against his beloved marsh's enemies. Once, they battled Akavir invaders, now they face foes from other, stranger, lands. The Daedra.
