River the Wood Elf (Caiwen)
Not much is known about my past, even my name is cast in a hidden veil. I been named River, at least that’s what the sailors have been calling me. I was found within a two days ride by horse back from WhiteRun. Laying on the banks of a large river, I woke up surrounded by the captain and his two sons. The captain took pity on me and offer work on his ship. A place to stay, to rest, and work, what more can I ask for? During my stay with the captain’s crew, I been nicknamed Sea Lass due to be the only the female onboard the Sliver Fang. All seem well, I was starting to feel normal, even though the men taunt and tease me. It wasn’t until the full moon I learn everything, anything, wasn’t as it seem. A new fear for myself and for those around me…
Ru the Thief (Anruvan Vivi)
Ru’s life isn’t made up of a fairy tales and pretty sunshine yet, being half Wood Elf and half Imperial wasn’t so bad in Bosmer, the homeland of the Wood Elves.
Until she was forced to make a choice, a choice that caused her half sister Caiwen (River) to send Ru into exile. Seeking out her biological father in Skyrim, she lives with him for five years until once more her fairy-tale life was ruined.
Boredom, training, acting, living the life of a young noble was so dull compare
to her old life back in Bosmer. One day, during her father’s trips to Riften, she couldn’t stand the boredom any longer. Sneaking past the guards one night, the servants, a few more guards she was free! Free to roam as she pleases! Under the cover of night and creepy shadows which now fills her a positive thrill of fright. In the city of thieves, why would a young noble worry about thieves? They were after gold, not out to harm children. At age 13, the sparkling sapphire dangling around her neck caught the eye of a thief.
Expecting a struggle, the thief was surprised Ru not only hears her coming, also hands over the sapphire necklace with only one condition. “Show me your world and I promise I won’t scream for the guards.”
Of course the thief, tricked Ru, leading her all over town until she found the perfect moment to ditch the half-ling. Oddly enough, the thief Karliah shared Ru’s stories that she shared during their long walks. Sharing tales of what Ru claims to be capable of to Gallus Desidenius, and Mercer Frey. Of course before anything was said and done for Ru, there were “games” she had to win in order to SEE the guild. Take, hide, sneak, it all seem life once more was becoming more exciting. Before long she left the noble life and became a thief. Alas, through the years the happy story came to an end with the beginning of betrayal, and the deaf of Gallus.
Nivi, it is told it means snow, and Arodeth means noble. Often when addressing someone, one often refers to last name when spoken. I suppose you can say my name is Noble Snow but, my history, our history of the Snow Elves, have been buried for thousands of years. Like my family before me, I spent my whole life hiding, hiding in the snow, caves, anywhere to conceal myself. I been hiding for so long, I am beginning to feel like a wild animal. Not knowing my history, not knowing the names other than my small family. I don’t see them as often as I would like, staying separated in order not to draw attention. I wonder though, like many before me, how long must my race keep hiding? Is my family still alive? I hear the roar from the sky, filling me with fear. Has the dragons return? My the great snow, how long has it been since I been hiding?
Can you see through my eyes? Can you tell me of my past? I know what I am, but you tell who I am? I know I am a vampire, how I became one is left to the unknown.
