Recently I discovered this meme, and put it in my favs to do for later. I decided to use my Skyrim character, Atirya, for it. As my friend
once asked me 'how did Atirya get in to the Dark Brotherhood?' Well I hadn't really developed her character enough to be able to answer her, but upon seeing this meme, I had to really think about it. So here it is:Age 5
- Atirya is carefree and happy. Her parent's store in Solitude is thriving, and her life is perfectly fine. She often helps out with tending to the store whenever her mother orders her to. All is well until two years later, when she had found her beloved Husky, sathi,
murdered on the street, a knife stuck in its chest (you can read
about the encounter there). She became angry, and set out to find the killer. A few days of research later, she found out that it was a younger boy who had killed her dog, though it was on accident, as he and his friends were playing a game that had took a wrong turn. Atirya, in turn, killed him, and thought nothing of it at the time. She was also never found out about the murder.Age 13
-Two years earlier, her father died in an accident [still has to decide what kind], and then another year later, age 12, her mother became sickly. Atirya has to take responsibility for the store, and work full-time. She reflects on what she had done two years ago, and contemplates between what is right and wrong. Working daily bores her, so she has much time to think about what she had done. Age 17
- Atirya's now joined the Dark Brotherhood. She has been a member for two years now. At age 14, her mother died, and she ran away from Solitude, and her responsibility to take care of their family's store. A year later, she killed again [will have to figure out more detail] and a few days after, she found herself in the Brotherhood's hands. Atirya became a valuable member of the DB, never failing in her contracts.
This age is seen during Skyrim. Age 25
-Years after the DB's collapse in Skyrim, she has remained a faithful member of the assassins, helping to rebuild their numbers slowly. She cuts her hair, deciding it got too long, and in the way while on a mission. Atirya changes into the robes, as they are more comfy in her older age. She still goes out on contracts whenever needed, though not as much as she used too. Her main job in the DB is to guide them, and give out contracts herself.
