Here I will showcase a general hub of my Skyrim characters and their varying play-through styles. I like to mix it up and keep it interesting.
Wondering how I make my characters? Here is a page detailing the mods I use, the methods to my madness, and (hopefully) anything else you wanted to know about it.
Current mods I’m working on, including some face presets.
Note: Skyrim doesn’t have “classes” like the previous games in The Elder Scrolls series did. I use a mod called Disparity to add in classes and adjust some minor things. The classes are based off Morrowind’s classes and abilities.
Just made a fresh, new character named Freja. She’s a Breton Bard who enjoys too much adventuring and dealing with Daedra. She also supports the Stormcloaks! Click here to see how I made her face and for a little biography.
More information coming soon, including mods.
Sigyn is my jack of all trades character. In the years of off and on playing her I have nearly done every quest and playstyle. I have had to recreate the character multiple times and I find a mixture of a Bard and a WitchHunter works best for her. She tends to be very moralistic and upholds justice, but I really enjoy traveling and exploring Skyrim with her. My favorite quests to play through Skyrim with her are the Dawnguard quests where Sigyn sides with the Dawnguards and vanquishes the vampire threat. Her favorite magic tends to be fire type destruction spells and restoration.
I am currently playing a reincarnation of her. I have old pictures of her face, but when I went to redo her features for a completely new game the mesh got severely messed up. I decided instead of trying to copy her old face I would base her new face on an actress I’ve been looking to recreate in Skyrim (see Sigyn’s Face Overhaul page). This time she’ll be based off Kathryn Winnick! Woo, I love Lagertha from the show Vikings!
Ah, Lilith. When you think of the name, do you think of a manipulative woman who’d like nothing better than to destroy you and everything you love because she’s just born that way? No? Well, you should. Lilith is sort of based on the Jewish folklore Lilith, with some twists. She’s rather cunning, devious, has no qualms with killing for any reason, but she really loves kids. Her devilish behavior is mostly a product of her personality and rebellion for the life she’s been forced to leave behind (more on that when I finish making the character in Skyrim!). In a sense, Lilith is the way she is because it suits her to be and because inflicting pain on people makes her feel better about herself, however, her nature is what caused her to lose the only life she’s ever cherished. She’s based on the Chaotic Evil archetype in the classic RPG alignment system.
I usually have her as a vampire who uses shock, wind, ice, and water destruction spells (thanks to mods), illusion magic, conjuration, as well as daggers. Her class I base off of the Nightblade class.
I am currently remaking her for my new Skyrim setup.
Her face is 50% done! I will show off more when I get pictures. I finished Natalie Dormer’s face! Woo! And added an updated picture to this list. Check out her flickr.
Cynwrig is a cryomancer who also uses wind and water in her spellcasting. She’s almost completely a mage character (a rarity for me as I enjoy using weapons, too) and is rather morally gray. She supports the Stormcloaks because she feels no nation should be confined to rules that are unfitting to them. She’s also very supportive of nature and can be found wandering around icy cold lakes naked. >_> Her class is a mixture of a Mage and a Pilgrim.
I didn’t play much with her (admittedly lost her actual game file, but I have her face file), but I did enjoy taking screenshots with her. It’s fun to explore Skyrim’s more arctic regions with a character that enjoys freezing her behind off.
Kiera is my most evil character to date in Skyrim. Whereas Lilith is a bitch to be a bitch, Kiera is more than just chaotic: she’s the classic evil villain. She wants to become the most powerful mage in history and use that power to rule all of Nirn and by extension, Mundus. Kiera is actually very hard to play in Skyrim because parts of just the main quest assume you’ll do good for the benefit of Tamriel. Kiera doesn’t want what’s good for Tamriel, she wants to control it. To this end, I have actually considered making her a follower.
Her looks have changed a lot since I first came up with her design and I’m still working on how, exactly, I want her to look. I really like her war paint. Creepy! ^_^
This is Hathor. I came up with and played her around 2013. She is a Redguard with excellent fighting skills. I created her to specifically play the Companions’ questline (had never done it up to this point) and really fell in love with this brutal yet beautiful warrior. Unfortunately, I don’t remember much else about her in terms of mods, but I do know that armor is from Immersive Armors and is supposed to be heavy armor. >_< I’ve gotten away from the “metal bikini” types of armor, but damn does she look good. (That red on her is blood, she’d just come back from a fight).
I have remade her face, added better features, and released it as a face preset here.
Yes, this character is based off Daenerys from the Game of Thrones TV show. She was my first character ever for Skyrim. I made her a Nord and really kicked ass. I want to remake her face, even though there are a ton of Danny faces on Nexus. I just want my own flavor. Beyond making her a Nord and her being my first character, there isn’t much to say. I used almost all vanilla assets since there wasn’t much in 2011 (except the clothing, which I believe I got through some mod or a console command that allowed you to wear NPC only clothing; this is Alea’s outfit). Also, the playthrough was very disjointed as I wanted to try every quest I found interesting and had little in the way of a solid character play style. I’ll put up pictures when I’m done with a new face.
Notable mods: None. 😦 Maybe I’ll add some if I decide to do a new playthrough of her.
