I’ve been thinking a lot lately about character creating in Skyrim, mostly which side in the civil war my evil altmer, Arrille, would pick. While rendering some files last Friday, I drew him, and my good dunmer Siadrys. Because rendering takes a while.
More Fallout rambling here.
I recently came to the conclusion that with all the insane preparation I’ve made for playing New Vegas, I have three characters to play with.
The good you may recognize, because I’ve featured her before, is Siadrys Varilo. I had trouble getting her into the game in the cosmetic way, since elf ears, red eyes, and black skin are unavailable in a vanilla New Vegas game (not that I want mods anyway). Instead I went with “what would she look like if she was human?”. Siadrys (in the Fallout universe) is charismatic, her primary weapons is the shotgun and rifles good for sniping, and all of her actions are almost always good.
The bad is Arrille Culumarie, an altmer from Oblivion, because I play the good guy too often. He is quite cold, greedy, power-hungry, and prefers pistols as his weapon of choice. In comparison, Arrille has the brains while Siadrys has the brawns. Also, both of them are sneakers because that’s the way I prefer to play New Vegas (and 3).
Now the last is Uni Steel. She (or he if I wanted it) can be anything I want her to be. As soon as I’ll start playing New Vegas again, she’s the one I’ll play. She’ll gamble like crazy, and obliterate her enemies with her fists. The only thing about her that is consistent throughout all of her versions is her notable red hair, and the name of course.
And that’s about it… for now.
