This is Shamanih, my main Player Character for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. She is half Redguard and half Bosmer, on her father and mother's sides respectively. She never knew her mother, growing up in the Akehane, the nomadic Hammerfell tribe of which her father was both shaman and leader. She is primarily a Nighblade build, specialising in magic, stealth, marksman and longblade. She ends up in the Imperial Prison via a Navy raid of her smuggling ship off the Cape of the Blue Divide in the Abecean Sea. Shamanih's tattoo is the symbol of the Akehane, indicating the unity of the cosmos through the sun, Magnus, and the two moons, Masser and Secunda. The inherited mix of her father's Redguard shamanism and her mother's Bosmer wood magic means she has always been strong as a mage, particularly in stealth and nature-orientated spells. Due to her upbringing in the nomadic tribe, however, she did not learn to read or write until she journeyed to Sentinel at age 22, something that greatly hampered her progress in the academically-minded Mages Guild. She falls in love with Martin Septim, because hey, Sean Bean. HOW COULD YOU NOT.
