    I wrote a Breton character build called The Shadow of Dawn and a fleshed out backstory for her recently. She too grew up in Wayrest, but her life was turned upside down during the Corsair attack in 188. Which eventually led her to finding out some intersting family secret's that were hidden away. Check it out if you like. I'd a lot of fun writing her.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading both versions of your builds plus the backstory as well as watching the gameplay footage. I certainly think that Alayne and Estelle would get along well. :)

    Hey thanks man! Glad to hear you enjoyed the read. That was the first descent bit of writing I have done in a long while so happy to hear that it reads well. And cheers for checking out the builds, she was one of the most entertaining playthrough's I've had on the game, so I was stoked to be able to share it with the vault :D. Heh Alayne and Estelle certainly would get along I think.

    My canon character is Aelberon of Dusk, the playthrough that inspired my fanfiction, Straag Rod. It was a Requiem playthrough and it was just... wow. 

    Good old Sir Shiny, still have to read through A LOT of your stories, came across 'Practice of Magic' and was introduced there to a very interesting dragondborn.
    Will defenitely keep reading more!

    Back on-topic.. Don't know about cannonically speaking, but the character who it felt most logical for to complete most questlines was a young lady who eventually became a lich. (through the power of modding).
    Her character arc felt so natural while playing, from someone who maybe had a bit too much faith in people and wanting to save everyone, to slowly (very slowly, this playthrough has been going on for months) losing that spark, becoming more powerful, being corrupted by the promise of more power and the tricks of Hermaeus Mora into this being who has no regard for anyone's life anymore.
    It's the first overpowered character I have played in a looooong time, but it feels earned, such horrors she had to endure... *shivers*

    Well, that wasn't really back on topic. Cannon for me would probably resemble the dude from the trailer, being an overall good character, doing none of the major factions, siding with dawnguard and unintentionally ending up related to Hermaeus Mora.
    Though I rarely play as dragonborn. Dealing with dragons as a 'normal' tamrielic person is more interesting to me.

    My "canon" character for Skyrim is probably Davyn the Skald. He was a Nord's Nord kind of playthrough, using light armor, melee weapons, and a whole lot of Shouting. He ate and drank like a grizzly before hibernation, then delved into the nearest cave while singing, drinking, and fighting at the top of his lungs. When he got tired, he would go back to the nearest in and warm himself by the fire while sharing his stories with the friends he made on his way.

    My first and so far only character is a Colovian Imperial named Hector. He is a battlemage and is loosely based on a character I made from another game, who was also a warrior I named Hector, who was also named after a Fire Emblem character named Hector. I guess I really like the name Hector.

    I don’t have much of a backstory for him, but I figured he was trying to cross into Skyrim to start a new life in Solitude and met the Stormcloaks who he used to help him enter the province before being captured. He was originally going to join the Imperial Legion, but holds a grudge over them almost executing him, but he also doesn’t like the attitude of the average Stormcloak.

    While he is Dragonborn and is willing to save the world, he feels that he has no investment in the civil war at the moment and he has a house and a daughter, but has not yet taken a wife. He does use his position of Dragonborn as an excuse to bend the law.

    My character is from two completely different franchises;skyrim, and mortal kombat, his father was the father of reptile, but anyway he is an argonian that has a scar from a werecroc and is named "fists-of-Stone" or just "Stone", he was run out of Black Marsh for supposed "unholyness because he had the ability to spit acid , he now lives in the lakevie manor always able to pick any lock and empty any pocket, he knows value when he sees it, but he has a sense of right, anyway i think this is getting too big, so enjoy reading

    My cannon character is a wimpy Nord named Yoffrind Wind-Catcher, who was essentially just a nerd obsessed with the Dwemer, and went off in search of their technology.  Snuck around Dwemer ruins, learnt about crossbows and eventually developed rudimentary gunpowder to be used with destruction magic, and used that to tear apart the Imperial Legion and the Vampires.  He never learnt that he was the Dragonborn until he had defeated Lord Harkon, and tore apart Alduin with sheer firepower from his Dwemer Autocannons.

     

    My canon character is Idhea DeSele - Champion of Clavicus Vile and seeker of eternal youth.  Character Profile in the link.

    Interesting, you know I've never really had a 'Canon' Character, it's just not something I ever established really. Might have to give it a shot at some point but it might be a tad too late for me since I've been building for...what nearly 6 years now so I'm fairly used to having each of my builds as the canon character for that playthrough, and getting into that mindset.

    I've never been able to view any of my characters as "canon" except the first. The others somehow don't feel right, Idk.

    I'm sorry, but I had to.

     

    Best part: it's actually true.  Fantastic playthrough with the ordinator overhaul with a focus of smithing, archery, destruction, and lockpicking, with the aetherial staff as a useful tool.
