Race: Imperial (Half Bosmer)
Appearance: Slight build, 5'11, dark, short cut hair, slightly pointed ears, wears a mottled green hooded cloak under which he wears a tunic. His face is thin, as though the fat has been stripped away. He has light blue eyes, which can be peaceful as a pool of water or steely and swirling as a rainstorm. He has a bit of stubble lining his chin, indicative of the toll his work is taking on him, and his face grows more carefully lined as the year goes on.
Personality: Serious, but not unfriendly.
Polite. Dedicated to his ideals, and protective of innocents. He believes in justice and mercy and has dedicated his life to these traits.
-Has grown more serious, determined, and blunt over time. While still believing in his sworn ideals wholeheartedly, he values efficiency and safety over Honor, seeing it as a frivolity.
Solus is in possesion of many useful tools and items. His clothing consists of a camouflage hooded cloak, on top of a similarly camouflaged tunic. He has various herbs and such in the pouches on his belt and three-way bandolier/harness. He has a layered light steel plate over his left chest, and 4-tiered, overlapping steel plates on his gauntlets.
He has a Saxe knife; a heavy double-bladed knife, and two Rib knives; thin, long, knives weighted for throwing. He also has a short reflex bow, crafted by himself in Skyrim. He has several light armor plates underneath his tunic protecting vital areas, including his groin. He has over eight throwing knives, 24 potion-tipped darts, random bits of things for cleaning wounds and such, crafted smoke-creating devices, blinding tools, and sharp-tipped knee pads. His bow is locked in place on his back with a special releasable mechanism, allowing fast access to it.
Solus was born in Cheydinhal, in Cyrodiil to a farmer and his wife.
As he grew up, he took a great interest in the divine Stendarr and his traits. He idolized the Vigilants, but when he was one day traveling back to Cheydinhal from Chorrol, he was accosted on the road by some. He was astounded at how cruel and judgmental they seemed. Solus was disillusioned, wondering if this was really how followers of Stendarr were meant to treat people.
During on visit to the Church of Stendarr, he met a man, who he confided his issues with the Vigilants in. The man informed him that there were other groups dedicated to exacting and expressing Stendarr's justice and mercy who were far more reputable, including the Knights of Stendarr, in Hammerfell. However, the man expressed that he wasn't sure Solus had the build for a Knight, but said he'd would very much like to discuss training him. The man was Elewen Fardyn, a Ranger of Stendarr; another group of followers, who operated out of northern Cyrodiil and Skyrim. He said they were a small group, but their talents made them very deadly to evil and injustice nonetheless.
They traveled back to Cheydinhal, where Solus' parent were convinced, and he traveled with Elewen back to his home in Skyrim.
Elewen proved a hard teacher, but Solus was dedicated, and after a decade of hard training in the wilderness, he had become extremely adept at the arts of camouflage, stealth, archery, the use of knives, hand-to-hand combat, diplomacy, and tactics. He had served the town of Ivarstead for 3 years, acting as its guardian and protector, and advisor in other matters. He had most of all been instilled with Stendarr's values of mercy and justice, and swore to uphold these.
After so long training, Elewen decided it was time to give Solus a real mission; and he soon began preparations to sail to Akavir, to spread the values of Stendarr there as well. He now arrives via ship to Thanefall, ready to begin his real adventure.
