When the Game of Skyrim starts, you are a prisoner but not told why.
SO I make up a story for my characters.
-My Stealth character, a Khajiit, was out taking a walk after a bad fight with his mate.
he was captured and quickly got caught up in the rebellion and before he knew it had overthrown the empire(something that happened to me as a player).
-Upon overthrowing the empire, he remembered his darling mate who he had not thought of in days and realized, "I can never return to Cyrodiil."
- SO he took a wife, joined the thieves guild and the Dark Brother hood too forget what he left behind because of a lust for revenge.
- Still, when he sits at home with his Nord Bride, He will down 9 bottles of Alto Wine, the style his Mate tended to favor, and mutter to himself, "I should have just changed the Kitty litter"
