Chronicles of the Dovahkriid

  •   Born in the Summerset Isle in the year 387 of the first era, Satan grew up in the slums of Alinor, and being a underfed, poor, and not as physically capable as his peers, he was always the one who was mistreated; the entire town spat at him and called him a “Pathetic half-breed.” Satan, now at the age of 14 had finally had enough. He had decided to fight fire with fire, he stolen all the food he could and used the entire city as his gymnasium, he also loved it when the guards chased him. The following years had been a remarkable time for Satan, he grew taller, stronger, faster, sneakier, and more robust.

     

      In 1E 418, Satan was confident in his newfound stature, so he began to seek revenge on his peers, for what they did all those years ago. He hunted down and murdered every last one, until he came upon the 19th person. Satan thought it would end like all the rest. He was sorely mistaken.

     

      His research on his target was not as thorough as all the others, the mer was a vampire, and Satan didn’t even know it. He shadowed the bloodsucker to a more remote location and as Satan was about to make his kill, the vampire turned on his heels to meet Satan’s gaze. The battle that ensued was bloody and fierce. Satan dodged, struck, pirouetted, and dodged again and again, but the vampire was draining the life out of him. Satan then tried to mix things up and turned to pyromancy to do it. He hurled fireball after fireball at the creature, but the bloodsucker had superior reflexes, and the fireballs -- one by one -- missed their mark.

     

      And so the stalemate continued, until the vampire decided to close the distance. The creature suffered major burns and was in serious danger of disintegrating under the heat of Satan's fiery attacks, but in the end it was not enough. The vampire broke Satan's guard and knocked him down. He turned Satan….changed him. The act of turning him forced Satan to fall into a slumber. Bested by a vampire -- and to pour salt on the wound -- turned into one of them. He'd forevermore be shamed by this defeat.

     

      When he awoke, he realized what his pale skin meant. Satan soon discovered he was in a cave, and that it had been nigh on 6 months since he was turned. Thousands of years passed and he was turned into a vampire numerous times, he had hunted down and killed the rest of the mer who he felt wronged him, including those who turned him. Satan one day, came upon a well built fortress known to him as “Cloudruler Temple”. As he neared the fort, he was halted by a Blade on duty. Knowing of the elf standing before him was a vampire, the man stayed in the watchtower as he began to speak. Satan cut him off however, and offered the whole of the Empire assistance in closing Oblivion Gates in exchange for gold, a chance to make a name for himself, and the opportunity to spill Daedric blood.

     

      The Blade, shocked at the offer presented to him, told Satan to stay where he was and that he would take the offer to his superior’s inside, which also the Hero of Kvatch, the Grandmaster, and the heir to the throne were. They were skeptical at first, but after making Satan swear a blood-oath, he declared confidently “By the trail of dead and rivers of blood, they shall know me!”. They reluctantly accepted his offer. In his time in Oblivion both the mortals and the daedric forces had come to know him as “The Planewalker” in recognition of Satan’s swift closing of Oblivion Gates. He had become somewhat of a celebrity.

     

      Satan’s successes was throughout Tamriel, so much so that the leaders of the Mythic Dawn made Satan, the highest target next to Martin Septim, Jauffre, and the Hero of Kvatch. As such, Satan faced 34 assassination attempts, and it is at this time Satan found something in the Hero of Kvatch that he realized he never had. Kinship. Satan trusted the Blades, the Hero, and Martin with his life, and they did with him; Satan and the Hero of Kvatch would often journey together on missions, and thought of each other like brothers. And together they closed the last of the Oblivion Gates, saved Bruma from Kvatch’s fate, killed the leader of the Mythic Dawn and his family in his “Paradise” and forced Mehrunes Dagon to play his hand, and soon discovered what that hand was.

     

      Upon arriving at the Imperial City to celebrate and perform Martin’s Coronation, the heroes discovered that the city was besieged by the daedra, just outside. They were quick to respond and quickly headed to the Temple of the One to prevent the city from being completely overrun. In the midst of Satan’s berserk state, he looked to the skies as he heard the skies torn asunder, the sky shifted from its deep crimson to a midnight purple, and doubled over when he felt foreign blood seep through his very pores, his every bone and ligament snap and reform. He let loose a gruesome howl of pain and as the blood spattered in all directions, the sky returned to its crimson color and Satan assumed the mantle of the Vampire Lord.

     

      As he fought through what seemed like all of Oblivion, with his allies close by, them knowing the otherworldly demon beside them is their ally and friend. They neared the entrance to the Temple of the One, when a massive Oblivion Gate opens, and the horrific creature that comes out of it, is no less than Mehrunes Dagon himself. The lumbering Daedra behemoth swung a giant axe at the Septim heir and vampire lord, the vampire’s reflexes grabbing the end of the handle of the axe and telling Martin to get inside with the Hero of Kvatch, while he kept Dagon at bay. Or at least distracting him. Within moments the vampire lord was overpowered and thrown halfway across the Temple District. Then it happened.

     

      The Temple of the One’s dome burst open as what seemed like a molten dragon began to fight the Daedra Prince one-on-one. The last thing Satan remembered before succumbing to his injuries and exhaustion was Dagon being sent back into Oblivion. When he awoke, he found himself in an Undercroft. Heading to the main chapel, he quickly learned it had been only a year and a half since the end of the Oblivion crisis. Upon greeting High Chancellor Ocato, after briefly meeting him before the attack on the city, he was given the Title Champion of Cyrodiil along with his friend the Hero of Kvatch, and given a long update as to what had transpired in his absence.

     

      Needless-to-say he was relieved the world hadn’t ended during his little “nap”. After Satan celebrated the victory of men over daedra with his friend, the blades and nobility of Cyrodiil, congratulated by the new emperor family, the Meade’s, he discussed with the Hero of Kvatch about helping the provinces of Tamriel recover from the aftermath of the recent event, to which the hero flatly stated that he still had business in Cyrodiil to finish first, and that he would meet up with Satan once he was finished. He said it involved some strange door near Bravil’s coast.

     

      He never saw the Hero of Kvatch again.

     

      Once Satan restored order in the other provinces, he built a stone castle in the forests east-southeast of Chorrol and west of the Imperial City. When he was finished with the castle, he lived peacefully for the next 200 years. One day, on a bright summer morning, Satan awoke, to instantly think about why he hadn’t cured his vampirism. He thought of how he missed the light of the sun and how it warmed his skin.

     

      So he did. And that night, for the first time in era's, he slept soundly. But as his gift was given directly from the Daedric Lord of Domination and the King of Corruption, he couldn't just discard it like a bad apple. There would always be remanent's of it. He had purged the curse, the need to feed off of blood and hide from the sunlight, but the Daedric blood within him remained.

     

      The next morning, he awoke to one of his servants; saying there are some elven soldiers at the castle gate. And they didn’t look friendly. He got out of bed, armored up, and went to see what these piss laden, elven brigands wanted.

     

      When he arrived at the gate, one of the soldiers spoke up “By order of the High Elven Aldmeri Dominion! By order of the Thalmor, we sentence you heretic, to death!” The next moment the elves weapons were drawn, the entire company of soldiers ready for a fight. Instead of killing the elves, and risk attracting more -- possibly with catapult’s -- Satan decided to run. And run he did. He ran and ran all the way to Bruma, through the Jerall mountains, into Skyrim, through the small village of Ivarstead, down the dirt road, and rammed into a Nord wearing what looked like the Stormcloak uniform, he heard so much about.

     

      Coming to his senses, he realized he rammed into an entire entourage of Stormcloaks, with none-other than Ulfric Stormcloak standing in the middle. After a few moments of frantically trying to gain his bearings and explain to the Nords what happened to him, they reluctantly let Satan stay the night with them, to let him rest from that incredible distance he ran earlier.

     

      And just because the gods wanted to get a good kick out of Satan’s day, the camp the Stormcloaks, Satan, and a man named Lokir -- a man with a horse, the party found but an hour or so ago -- were ambushed by Imperial soldiers. They were outnumbered 15:1. Ulfric told everyone to stop fighting, everyone was bound, Ulfric was gagged, and an hour later, everyone was put in a couple of carriages headed to Helgen and Satan's ultimate and unknown fate.

      So....what do you think?


      It was originally meant as a pre-requisite to my YouTube Lets Play of this character. You probably were able to tell based on it just feeling a little off, right?

            I've had a look but I am a bit hesitant to comment as I know very little about builds. I'm currently working through my second build and that is taking time.  I do have an idea with your ToC though. See what you think.

              I was thinking something more simple for my ToC.
