Omg.... lol.... omg...
As a sinSEER lover of puns... I am pleased.
As soon as FM gets a post up, I'll get another one going. We'll keep this ball rollin' and get you new folk in the game! Hopefully, by the end of the week we'll have this wrapped up. If not, I'll let you guys hop in on this one! Nothing like killing flying monsters as a bonding experience.
That... that was totally an eye pun.... Forgive me for trying to stay on topic.
D,: *crawls into a corner to cry eyes out*
oh the puns...Dervish, sorry sir, but I won't be able to partake in this right now. Not enough time. If an opportunity for new characters arise at a later time, I may reconsider. Just wanted to let you know so you don't expect my CS or something.

Whiterun, Skyrim. Her grandfather was a member of the companions
Merilis has dark black hair, light blue eyes, a tanned skin tone and high cheekbones. She wears black eyeliner around her eyes with dark brown eye shadow and dark brown lip coloring. Her hair is down, chopped just below her shoulder blades.
She wears Hide armor, hide boots and hide gauntlets.
26 years; The 6th of Evening Star
Skyforge Steel Sword (handed-down)
10 Lock Picks
3 red apples
1 Minor Stanima
1 Minor Healing
1 Minor Magika
weight= 5.80 lbs
One Handed High
This is the main thing she was trained to use. Ever since she was a young Nord her grandfather and Father taught her how to use a sword. Her father always tried to get her into two handed weapons, but her grandfather thought it was best to have a shield in one and a blade in another. After her grandfather's death, she was left with his Skyforge, which was his first weapon given to him once he entered into the Companions.
Blocking has come into play many times in her life and it really saved her ass. With a shield she is able to bash and guard herself from attacks. Like the suggestion for using a one handed sword, her grandfather also taught her how to use a shield, gaining much needed strength and muscle in her left arm.
Merilis was taught the basics when she was living in Windhelm by one of the best in the city. Pick pocketing and sneaking in one of her specialties now,and it always come in handy.
Light Armor Moderate
She wears hide. This also comes in handy when sneaking since it doesn't make that bulking noise and its easier to run with.
Restoration Somewhat Proficient
She learned this by reading many books on healing when she was younger and had a lot of free times with the Companions. She isn't the best magic user, but decided to learn this restoration spell just in case she needed it for future battles.
Background and a "brief" history:
Merilis was born in Whiterun, her father and grandfather were members of the companions and were well known in the city. Her mother on the other hand was born and raised in the freezing kingdom of Whindhelm, after many years she left that unruly place filled with dark elves and ventured toward Riverwood, where she stayed with distant family that owned a small farm. Merilis mother, being a very beautiful woman, attracted a lot of attention even from Merilis father who was in the town on a mission to kill a couple Foresworn in the Helgen area. They fell in love and under the Goddess Mara they were married and lived in Whiterun.
A year passed and the woman gave birth to Merilis. The child spent most of her time being around the Companions. It influenced the young child to be heroic and to fight for what was right. She use to stand up to the kids that bullied others, putting them in their place, which in the end she was rung by her mother getting rants about how hurting others were bad, and a secretly high five from her father and a sweet roll treat, for standing up for what she thought was right.
In her teen years, a rebellious side took over and since she thought she was so powerful, she took it upon herself to attack a pack of wolf that had been terrorizing a camp south of Whiterun. So taking an old iron sword and iron shield she escaped through the night and went on a search for these wolves. It was late and they hadn't shown themselves at all until she was ambushed by the four of these feral creatures. Freaking out, since this was her first real battle, she lost her sword and was thrown to the ground, only her shield protecting her from sharp teeth and killer claws. Until there was a yell, a cry. The wolves howled and growled as someone else caught their attention, this man, who ever he was, saved her,and she watched
as this man killed each wolf with one simple slash each. Her heart and breathing was so fast, that she hyperventilated and past out. The next morning she was in her bed,and the rest of the month she was punished severely and was told she had to polish every single we weapon owned by the Companions. She was only 13.
When she turned 17, after many years worth of combat training from her father and grandfather, she was intending to be apart of the Companions. She had known the others and had trained with them for years, and they were her family. But her mother refused to allow to become one and forced her daughter to travel to Windhelm to help her grandparents at the sea ports. With many days and nights of arguments and fights, Merilis failed and was forced to be leave Whiterun and be taken to Windhelm. But not with out a gift from her grandfather who gave her his old Skyforge sword.
Upon staying in Windhelm she hated it there! Not only was she disgusted with the racism against anyone that wasn't a Nord, it was too damned cold and dark!! She was there for another 3 years, fending for herself since her mother's parents weren't very...caring. Because of this anger, she was going to run away. In the city she talked to Silda the Unseen, a beggar woman who Merilis would give 1 septim each day out of the kindness of her heart, asking her if she would train her to become a pickpocket and use sneak. Silda agreed to teaching it and allowed her to pay for less than 200 septims. The woman taught and Merilis learned from the best getting the basics down. After collecting enough septims she ran away, taking a carriage back to Whiterun where she was confronted with terrible news. Her grandfather had died by the hands of an organization called the Silver Hand. Not much was told to Merilis about this group and this made the female boil with anger and she swore she would kill these people. The Companions, in fear that their secret would be exposed, stopped Merilis and told her not to do it, to let her grandfather's death go easy. which didn't help because the female became even more infuriated and cursed the Companions. In embarrassment her father forced her to leave, to not comeback to the Companion's domain nor show her face in front of him and was sent to Riverwood. She was 20 when this happened.
A year later, she started her journey, leaving Riverwood to travel on her own, looking for information about this Silver Hand group. But soon the quest disappeared, it lingered on and on until there was no hope and she couldn't find anything. That took up 2 whole years. She was 23 when she finally decided that she would quit this useless quest for vengeance and travel, still asking a question here or there about the group of killers.
She explored the land, from the frozen tundras where ice trolls (damned things) lurked in the caves and dwelled in the mountains, to the swamps of Riften where the thieves were welcomed with an open arm, and a dagger behind it's back.
BY the time she turned 26, she was already traveled most of Skyrim, doing quest for money, and since the Civil War ended in Skyrim, and the death of the Dragon born the roads of Skyrim have somewhat become peaceful with the Imperials rule.
Merilis uses her strength and stamina to fight. Blocking and the use of a one-handed weapon are her strong points. Block-Bash-Slash-Smash, pretty much. At times though she could get carried away, especially when she begins to get frustrated, she would be seen hitting the creature multiple times even when it's dead and it's spirit arrived to Sauvenguard, but that is sometimes. Her only thought though when in fights is to survive and she will use anything to accomplish that. If there is a bow and arrow on the floor, she will use it. If the guy she just killed had potions on him, she will take them, a dead man's position is a breathing man's necessity.
Ever since the mistreatment of her grandparents in Windhelm, the death of her grandfather, and the way her father pretty much disowned her, Merilis's heart turned cold.
Sure she is nice sometimes... to a point. There is a reason why she travels alone. She believes she doesn't need dead weight dragging behind her, that anyone that can't match her skill, is useless and she would leave her "comrade's" ass to become prey for the wolves if they tried anything slick. It has happened once before, and she didn't hesitate to cut a few fingers off.
But that doesn't mean she isn't nice. She could spare a septum or two to the needy. The divines always smile upon those who give for charity. And when it came to children...yeah... that is yet another weak spot, she is very kind to the young and loves to sit and tell them about her adventures through the caves and ruins,about the creatures that hide in them.
But recently she has become more aware, especially with all this weird stuff happening, and she cannot trust much people. Yet, she hopes to find someone who is sharing her belief that something bad is coming their way...
