Character Back Stories
I know this has been done before, but I haven’t seen it in a long time. I’d like to bring some more out
To those who play Skyrim, if you made a back story for your character… feel free to post as comments.
Be a Nord, young, 18 at the time. Name is Svengal Oak-breaker.
We are living out in the woods of the Rift. Me, my dad, and mother… expecting a baby girl.
It was almost nighttime about eight on middas; I was playing with our dog, Frostnose.
Hear mom scream from house and evil laughter of three outlaws.
I run towards house, with Frostnose following and barking.
Mom’s screaming louder and more often as outlaws have their way with her.
Dad lays dead in field, throat cut and head bashed in.
I pull dagger from belt and bash open door.
A Khajiit and two Bretons are finished with mom and reach for weapons.
I rush nearest outlaw, a Breton and stab him three times in rapid secession,
I duck a swing from the other Breton’s steel battle-axe. And slash the inside of left leg, high-up.
I then punch him with haymaker and knock him unconscious.
Turn to Khajiit who is slashing with dazzling speed at my head and gut.
I roll under a swing and jump up as I end on feet, bringing the dagger through his jaw and into his skull
The Breton is starting to stir, for poetic justice, I decapitate him with his own battle-axe.
Two months later…
Mom miscarried from damage done by bandits (who were extremely rough)
Mom and I are headed to Cyrodil with other pilgrims, we are going to live with her half-sister
I have taken the battle-axe as souvenir (to be important later)
Fifteen years later…
Mom is dead, committed suicide.
Now old enough to go back to Skyrim to become a bounty hunter, mainly against bandits.
Get captured by Imperials while crossing border… escape.
Return to Helgen and kill bandits (one took my battle-axe)
Take back battle-axe and live life as a bounty hunter, name battle-axe to Avenger.
Avenger became a symbol feared by bandits all across Skyrim.
Burn old house in woods, buy Honeyside in Riften.
Get married to Ysolda
Living life happy, justice being served by me… Svengal Oak-Breaker, a.k.a. Svengal Bandit-Slayer.
Hope you enjoyed it…
