I really enjoy Elder Scrolls Online. Like, way more than I thought I was going to. Initially, I got it when I got my PS4 for my birthday. My mom got it for me so I’d have a game, otherwise it was just going to sit there and collect dust until Fallout 4 came out. I got it because, though I’m not really an MMO girl, I had a friend playing it and I like Skyrim. Plus, I mean, it was a free game for me so I wasn’t about to say no. It’s been over a year, I’ve managed to get a bunch of other friends into it, and I am even lucky enough that I can play it with my Girlfriend at the same time!
Anyway, these are my six characters. I have two others but I am thinking of deleting/changing them, so they don’t get to get a feature right now. A little about each of them, and some headcanon (because ESO, while a lot of fun, doesn’t give you much of a backstory. Then again TES games never do)
Zawadi is the first character I made. She is a Redguard Templar who I play like a paladin. She focuses in weapon and shield, medium armour, and has a secondary healing staff. She’s currently wearing Hollowjack motif, so you can’t see her impressive musculature, but she looks really cool in it so it’s okay.
Zawadi is physically very strong and cut. She’s also very butch, but has a hard time with letting women know she’s interested in them. She’s very reserved, stoic. She’s got her eye on a certain woman, but has no clue how to broach the subject. Before she was sacrificed my Mannimarco, she was royalty in Alik’r. She took up arms against the Ra-Netu,which is forbidden in her land, but she felt she had no choice. During the course of battle, she fell by Mannimarco’s treachery. When she returned to Tamriel her former family no longer recognized her. Perhaps something to do with being in Coldharbour for so long. But she has continued her work as a paladin, righting wrongs and helping those in need. She’s done some things she never thought she would do, but has not broken her moral compass even though she has been tempted time and again.
Zædra is adapted from a table top character. Her ESO personality is a little different than her table top version, and her magic works differently, but she’s pretty much the same character. She’s wearing the Dark Seducer costume and focuses in dark magic, daedric summoning and elemental magic.
Zædra is a very femme Altmer who doesn’t remember much from her time before Coldharbour. She generally has a good disposition but is self-serving above anything else. She can often be seen around Tamriel with her summoned familiar, and sometimes her boytoy Maau.
Àilleag is a Dominion dragon knight, focusing on heavy armour and two-handed weapons. She is wearing Merchant Lord’s Formal Regalia and this stupid hat I won in a loot box. She likes it though. She’s kind of a soft butch, generally outgoing and happy, and has the fastest cat alive. Aside from her personality, I don’t have much headcannon for her yet.
Jhaelë is a sorceress who focuses on weapon and shield style and medium armour. She’s currently in some Bosmer style medium armour.
Jhaelë and her wife Eilisif live in Pact territory. Although Jhaelë is a sorceress, she learned to defend herself with a sword and shield after a Nord woman came to her aid when she was attacked by bandits. Taken with the Nord woman’s physical prowess and willingness to help her for no reason other than it being the right thing to do, she decided to put her arcane studies on the back burner and learn to fight with a sword and shield. The two women began adventuring together in Stonefalls, and their adventuring took them to Bleakrock Isle and Bal Foyen. They married soon after aiding in the evacuation of Bleakrock Village. Currently, the couple are traveling to Deshaan to see what adventures lie ahead.
Ilithwen is a templar wood elf that focuses in healing and restoration staff, and is an excellent cook. She was created to adventure with a character my Girlfriend made and a character our friend made. We only play them when we’re all together, they’re a small adventuring party. They don’t have much of a backstory yet, and she doesn’t have much of one yet either. But she is kind hearted and the moral compass of her group.
I made Seyali specifically for the thieves guild DLC. My Girlfriend plays Seyali’s Boyfriend, and the two have misadventures in Abah’s Landing and throughout the Dominion. She focuses on stealth, using either two daggers or her bow. She is pretty much always in her signature Pirate First Mate’s Outfit.
Since a young age, Seyali has dreamed of being a Princess of Thieves. She was taken with tales of daring-do as a child in the Empire, but once the Empire fell apart she found herself homeless, and soon stranded in the Aldmeri Dominion. A stranger in a strange land. She did what she had to to survive in Vulkhel Guard, mostly taking odd jobs, working at the inn, and honing her speech craft. One day she met a dashing bard that she found herself rather attracted to, and using that silver tongue, she convinced him to join her in her quest to make a name for herself. He was enchanted by her beauty and charisma, and soon the two set off for Hew’s Bane, where Seyali had heard that the Thieves’ Guild was attempting to rebuild. The two of them have been instrumental in restoring the guild, and they are currently helping to expand the Guild’s influence, as well as investigating some happenings in the Gold Coast.
Yup, so that’s a thousand words about Elder Scrolls Online, haha.
