Roleplay


Background


Born in Hammerfell to a royal family, you were never interested in people. The only real joy in life was riding horses across the sand dunes. You loved the thrill of moving fast, and most of your childhood was spent moving as quick as possible. One day however, a few local boys, sick of you "girlish" love of horses, ambushed you outside the stables. The bullies towered over you, but spending time with stallions had taught you anything, it was to move fast and bring down opponents quickly. Running around them in a rush of adrenaline, you targeted weak points, bringing the massive youths to their knees. You stole your favorite steed and rode north, across the Alik'r Desert, through Cyrodiil, and all the way to Skyrim. On arriving at the border, a local pointed you to Darkwater Crossing, where you decided to camp for the night. But you walked in to a Civil War skirmish and were captured by the Imperials along with a thief who tried to steal your beloved horse.

Playstyle


This build requires a horse, and heavily depends on quick movement. Abilities like Shield Charge and Great Critical Charge keep you moving while enemies are staggered. The Enhanced Crossbow can deal damage from a distance and usually scatter groups. Whirlwind Sprint can get you in and out of combat quickly, while more destructive shouts are used to fling enemies off their feet. Windshear can stagger opponents on every strike, along with Shield Bashes to keep foes off balance. The key is being quick on your feet while enemies are knocked off theirs.
