This lovely piece is done by no other than KittehMei! My first time working with her and it was a pleasure! If anyone ever thought about commissioning her, stop thinking about it and do it! Or should I say, snag a slot when she reopens. She is awesome! She really communicates, shows a lot of WIPs, and will really perform with your references and details. I had no problems and it was a great collaboration. Thank you very much for this, KittehMei.

Now with that said, this character that is part of my Skyrim Chronicles is an actual in-game character(Ahkari). Needless to say, because of her role in my headcanon... she went through some change. She is an Ohmes-Raht and she is one of Onyx's earlier lover. She's also Kharjo's close friend. In the aspect of her being a merchant, that stays true but she is also a skilled combatant and can have a good range in the arcane area. She will appear in a couple of stories, DEFINITELy will appear in Frozen Skyrim. And she appeared in this story as well: Skyrim Chronicles: Ma'Roken I.

Oblivion's Blade of Woe, I suppose?

It's just an 'ordinary' ebony dagger. Since the Oblivion version is so fancy, I deemed it to be a 'special' dagger for this headcanon of a Skyrim character. It does have special enchantments, of course.

It's nice to have definitive image of Ahkari, I also like that there is an almost a Posin-Ivy quality to her.

Huh. Never thought of the Ivy look. BUT xD yeah I see it. May I ask if you like her in-game look better or my headcanon one? :D

Well, I actually like the Khajiit, as far as a non Dunmer or to a (lesser degree, Altmer) option.
 However, I've always liked creative hybrids, Bethesda even initially had pretty
much just put a Feline head on a human form, that always felt kind of Lazy.
 I like my Anthro with a heavy human lean I guess, so ultimately I like your
head canon and this artist fantastic illustrative abilities, I wish Bethesda would 
have did a complete 60/40 Human/feline blend, aesthetically based of coarse.

That is why I think that Elder Scrolls should be in Elsweyr. It will force Bethesda to explore the other Moon Phase Khajiits that they talk about so much in their lore but have yet allowed them to be playable. Then we can really start seeing characters like this headcanon of mine. And yeesh, the in-game version of Ahkari was not at all appealing.

YES! The amount of feline should directly correspond with the phase of the moon, maybe I would actually play a Kahjiit.
 From all they talked about lore, as you said, I do find it the most
interesting (aside from Dunmeri lore of coarse) and I've yet to see
an actual trace of it, aside from a really decent mod for Skyrim.

Here's another idea; maybe they can go into the idea of the "Mane", so it will have MORE incentive to play as a Khajiit. If player should choose not ot be a Khajiit, the player will be close ally/guardian of the protagonist Khajiit. So it really does force Bethesda to make one or two options for starting game route. They can even explore the idea of what happened within the Void Nights; whether it be post-Dovahkiin or maybe DURING the Void Nights. Instead of going forward with events, maybe they can go backward akin to how they are doing with ESO.

In general, I've always wished there were real and impactful consequences for ones choices in Tes series, but on a nuanced 
level as well as political and story line's unfolding.
 For a example, choosing to not play a khajiit in Elsweyr would have
you sell and buy at a very slight disadvantage, I mean when
i think of Khajiit, I think merchant/salesperson and arc type Treasure hunter.
We need to talk to Todd Howard, have a long sit down with and let
him know how it all needs to be Nod ...kind of serious though.

Yeah. I think some fans can really bring something to the table for some of these Elder Scroll installments. I mean .... look at MODs for example!
