Faction & Race:
Ebonheart Pact
Argonian
Name - Xhuvara

title - Supreme Warlord of The Shadow Fangs, a warband of argonian killers dedicated to serving Argonia and protecting the Hist

Sex - male

Race - Argonian

Age - 33

Occupation - Being the Supreme Warlord of The Shadow Fangs it is Xhuvara's duty to lead his warband into battle in service of the over all ruler of Argonia.

Faction - Ebonheart pact

Appearance - Xhuvara is quite tall and muscular (for an argonian). He has emerald green scales, a red throat and red/orange eyes. Two big spikes adorn the top of his head (which are ideally good for goring his enemies) with increasingly smaller ones going down his face, with some on his brow and chin. Lastly he has crimson red war paint on his face coming down from his eyes which slightly cover three large scars he won from an encounter with a rampaging wamasu.

Personality - He is often quite quiet and thoughtful but is an extremely passionate and charismatic speaker when around his egg brothers and sisters. He is prejudiced against outsiders who he believes have only brought his people trouble and holds a special resentment towards the Dunmer for enslaving his people. He is prone to angry, violent outbursts which has helped him assert his dominance and authority in his warband but it has also given him enemies who question his ability to lead however his charisma has won him strong allies. He is a psychopath due to childhood trauma but he likes to put his urges to good use (kind of like "Dexter").

Backstory - Xhuvara was born in a small village in Shadowfen to a poor family and one of 7 children. As a child he often accompanied his father and a few siblings to watch them hunt but one day a wamasu attacked them and killed his father and two sisters as well as wounding Xhuvara. Luckily a family friend found him and brought him back to his family. He was now the oldest of 5 children and yet to reach his naming day and to make matters worse his family had no one to get food because his mother was too busy looking after the hatchlings. This meant Xhuvara had to teach himself how to provide for his family which put an unrelenting burden of stress on top of him as well as being traumatised by the hunting incident gave him psychological problems...

Years later and Xhuvara had become a great hunter, it was relief from the pain of his past. He often went on hunting trips with his friends but one trip was different... As Xhuvara carried the catch with pride through the overgrowth something hit him like a mace. A thick sea of grey lapped against the horizon like the tide. Smoke. He dropped his catch and ran. He ran as fast as he could through the seemingly endless sludge of his homeland, screaming with rage and despair, desperately clinging onto some hope that he could make a difference and stop the atrocities that were unfolding just a stone's throw away. His friends weren't close behind, charging through the wilderness like a stampede of bulls with horns locked onto their targets, there was one thing on their minds, one thing that united them all more than ever. How many could they kill?

Xhuvara didn't know what the allegiance of the monsters he faced were and quite frankly he didn't care. All he knew was that he was literally bathed in dunmer blood with piles of shredded meat, torn flesh and shattered bones at his feet. and. He loved it. He loved the blood, the frenzied ripping, the suffering but while he was in his psychotic, blood fuelled rampage he didn't realise that his friends were dead and his family were either dead or worse, at the mercy of a dunmer slaver. His whole life was obliterated yet out of the ashes of an old life arose a new one and he was destined for greatness.

Over the following years Xhuvara dedicated his life to perfecting his fighting skills, learning the way of the shadow and gaining influence. He moved to Helstrom where the details of his life are blurred, he created a warband filled with the finest killers in Argonia that soon became famous for its prowess in the arts of stealth and war as well as for its charismatic and dominant leader, Xhuvara, who spread radical views of hate for all outsiders and nationalistic pride (which were already popular views) to many argonians. He has lead small raiding parties into morrowind to free his enslaved egg brothers and sisters. Xhuvara has used these raids as propaganda to make young argonians join his warband. On one raid he had found one of his brothers, he was broken and bloody and would die a slow death, so Xhuvara reluctantly put him out of his misery.As he moved to expand the warband across all of Argonia, the Ebonheart pact was created which thrust Xhuvara into an alliance with the dunmer. However above all his hate and psychopathic rage he knew it was the right thing to do, Xhuvara always held his peoples safety and culture above all else and agreed to fight alongside the dunmer and nords in service to the ruler of Argonia and the pact.

Best Memory - Killing his first person

Worst Memory - Loosing his entire village

Skills - Xhuvara is a master of stealth and constantly trains in the art of guerrilla warfare. He is interested in illusion magic and hopes to one day master the school of magic, he is especially interested in invisibility. He is amazing with a blade- sword or dagger whatever gets the job done. However Xhuvara is not so great with the less elegant blunt weapons like maces and war hammers. He wears medium armour crafted in the argonian style with tough scales.

Challenges for the Character - He is very slow to trust, especially with non argonians. He has an extremely violent anger problem and has been known to behead people who fail him. Xhuvara is psychopath which means he loves suffering and is a lone wolf however years of living with others has helped him overcome the loner side of him but he does like to be on his own away from everyone at times. He can be rude to and intolerant of others which has gotten him quite a few enemies, his peers hope that fighting in the pact will help this problem.

Religious and political Views - Xhuvara is extremely conservative and wants to uphold argonian traditions and conserve his culture. Xhuvara is nationalistic and loves argonia and its people, he will defend his home and kin with his life. Being conservative Xhuvara does not worship the divines or the daedra, instead he worships the hist and sithis which also means he strongly believes in preserving the shadowscales whom he has always admired.

Well, a nice one.

Though some points:

The naming day is the day an Argonian hatchling first drinks Hist Sip, turning the lizard creature into a sentient humanoid.

But I like the natiolatist attitude of the Argonian. The Argonians are organised highly efficiently in tribes lead by Archons, still they have somewhat like a central government and national identity, which especially comes from the hive minded Hist. Still I doubt they have one leader, but many.

From his description you could also add that he is a blood male.

There are atleast two forms of Argonian male, the blood male and the milk male. Blood males are stronger and more in number. They are the warriors and hunters of the tribes. Though, they are not attractive to females and have to bring hunting trophies, especially human and elvish teeth, to shoe their worth.

The milk males on the other hand are described as beautiful, slender and alluring. Their purpose is mating.

It's kinda a monkey truth ;)

kinda NSFW http://monkeytruth.net/forum/index.php?topic=18.0

But still, the loremites approve it. I merely recommend it ;)

I like your choice of wording, a bit too embellished to me though.

Also never ever say your char is a master of anything or amazing at anything. For example at the start of the game he'll be a novice at every skill (probably, anyway) so it doesn't make sense for you to claim him a master now.

I would also avoid saying he's charismatic, things like that are for others to decide. For example you could say he's extremely funny or charismatic yet in an actual RP or whatever he's not funny at all and overall rather dull.

I don't intend to rp much if at all in eso. If so it'll be the odd thing not playing strictly.

Also just a tip for the backstory but things like parents/village and/or siblings being killed or otherwise severely harmed (being sold into slavery for instance) are a much overused cliché, there are just way too many characters with backstories like that and now it's just plain boring to read.
