Name: Redras Raven-Eye
Race: Dunmer (Dark Elf)
Age: 97 years old
Birthplace: Erabenimsun Tribe Territory, Morrowind
Physical Appearance: Having spent the earliest years of his life under the perpetual fog of Erabenimsun territory, Redras’ red eyes and greyish skin are slightly paler and more sensitive than those of your typical Dunmer. His white hair is worn closely cropped, completely shaven on either side and around the back while the hair on top is worn slightly longer at about 2 inches and worn to the left –picture one of the so-called “SS” haircuts. His face is both stern and kind at the same time, with a complete lack of facial hair or scarring and a surprisingly noble bearing for an Ashlander. Redras stands at a relatively tall 5'10" with a lithe yet muscular build.
On his head, a fine tri-corn grey-black hat sits –unless he’s inside. He wears a fine, yet rugged grey-black overcoat that cascades down his form well past his knees with little hint of ornamentation beyond the black iron buttons and pale grey trim which almost seems to glow. In addition to this, he wears a pair of black leather gloves, knee-high black boots, a white swashbuckler’s undershirt, and black pants. He wears a thin ebony rapier on his right side, with which he is completely ambidextrous and a shortsword of the same make and thickness on his right.
All of this gear is of obviously expensive make, yet it has all seen much use and smells faintly of brine and salt water.
Religious Beliefs: Redras loosely follows Clavicus Vile, valuing money and commerce above most other things.
Personality: A swashbuckling pirate by trade, Redras has a special affinity for all things gold. If he can make money at it, cutting down a few civilians won’t get in the way. A loud and sometimes boisterous drunk, he’ll be the first to break out into song when the opportunity strikes and loves nothing more –except for gold of course- than a bawdy wench and several tankards of ale or anything else alcohol related on hand. Somewhat of an alcoholic, he drinks heavily throughout the day -which he claims helps him focus.
Though typically a self-serving bastard, heroics aren’t entirely beyond him and he’s not averse to a good fight if he sees any worth in it –money related or otherwise. Redras has a certain code of honor he lives by, though it is by no means a rigid code, on some matters he will not budge.
Background: Born into the purely warlike Erabenimsun tribe, Redras has lived a rough life. Cast out of his tribe at the young age of 26 when it was found he possessed the “cowardly” attribute of invisibility and being an undisciplined alcoholic –kleptomania was just icing on the cake as far as the elders were concerned. Disgraced, he was branded an outsider and thrown to the inhospitable lands on the outskirts of his village with nothing but his bare skin and a kitchen knife to keep him alive. Such a fate should have been considered a death sentence. However, he fell in with a group of outcast Mabrigash and from them he learned much of the different schools of magic.
Before long he was driven out of his native land by an Erabenimsun hunting party and forced to migrate to other parts of Morrowind at large. He travelled like this for years, preying on travelers when he could and hunting other bandits for their loot and the bounties on their heads. Redras never stayed in the same place twice but, eventually the authorities caught up with him in Solstheim. He was thrown into the dungeons of Fort Frostmoth to await execution for his crimes. On the day of his hanging, the Imperial jailer came to take him from his cell, however, when he arrived Redras was nowhere to be seen and would not answer his calls. The guard opened the cell door and Redras, using his powers of invisibility, slipped past him and incapacitated him, leaving the guard naked and hogtied in the cold cell.
Quickly, he stole what he could and bought passage on a pirate vessel mere moments before it left. Well acquainted with the arts of thieving, subterfuge, and murder, he offered his services to the ship’s captain and was quickly accepted. For years, piracy was his trade, eventually he became captain of his own ship, accruing wealth and items. Tragedy struck for Redras when his ship was sunk off the Golden Coast and he washed ashore near Anvil, strangely, he hadn’t lost a single thing he’d had on him. His ship sunk and his crew dead or taken into Imperial custody, Redras had little choice but to go into town and hope he hadn’t become a figure of infamy in the region. He currently lays low in the Flowing Bowl where the story begins…
