Character InformationCharacter Name:
Brunwulf Bear-ClawCharacter Age:
He is around 30-35 years in age.Character Gender:
Skyrim is a vast region set in the northern part of Tamriel. It is the home of the Nords, large and hardy men and women who have a strong resistance to frost, both natural and magical. It is bordered by Morrowind to the east, Cyrodiil to the south, Hammerfell to the southwest, and High Rock to the west. The island of Solstheim lies to the northeast of Skyrim. The capital of Skyrim is Solitude, the seat of where the Empire resides. Windhelm is the oldest city within Skyrim and is where Brunwulf was born and raised.
It is home to the Palace of Kings, where Ulfric Stormcloak, leader of the rebellion, sits upon the throne. The collected province of Skyrim is ruled by the High King (or Queen) and their consort. Each hold is ruled by a Jarl. Until the Stormcloak Rebellion and Skyrim Civil War, the province was included in the Empire of Tamriel. While under this banner, Skyrim enjoyed military aid from the Emperor's army and inclusion in world affairs, as part of the Elder Council. The High King and each Jarl held a seat on the council. Places relevant to Brunwulf:Whiterun
A city in central Skyrim and capital of Whiterun Hold. It is the trade hub of Skyrim. The young Barenziah, during her escape, took shelter here for a week with a young lover during her return to Mournhold. This hold contains Whiterun and High Hrothgar and was once referred to as the "Imperial City of Skyrim" before it underwent several acts of chaos including a dynastic feud, attacks by Hörme bandits and frost trolls and a series of annihilating winters of alternating floods, droughts, and fires. It is interesting to note that the local giant population seems to use the tundra outside Whiterun as a pasture of sorts for their mammoth herds, and a place to set camp, like Bleakwind Basin.Windhelm
Once the capital of the First Empire, current capital city of Eastmarch. The palace of the Ysgramor dynasty still dominates the centre of the Old City. Windhelm was sacked during the War of Succession,and again by the Akaviri army of Ada'Soon Dir-Kamal; the Palace of the Kings is one of the few First Empire buildings that remain. Today, Windhelm remains the only sizable city in the otherwise determinedly rural Hold of Eastmarch, and serves as a base for Imperial troops guarding the Dunmeth Pass into Morrowind. Helgen
Helgen is a moderately-sized community in Falkreath Hold. It was one of the only friendly settlements located in Falkreath Hold, apart from the city of Falkreath itself and Half-Moon Mill. It is destroyed by the dragon Alduin, soon after the Dragonborn escapes execution.Riverwood
Riverwood was founded by the ancestors of Gerdur and Hod, current residents and owners of the village's lumber mill. The village is small, consisting of the lumber mill, tavern, blacksmith, general goods store, and three log houses and huts with small vegetable gardens. The village is largely self-sufficient, growing its own vegetables as well as hunting and fishing for meat. Trade is made through the blacksmith and goods store, and what cannot be found locally or bought from travelers passing through may be bought from the Whiterun market. While the village is walled along its entrances, these walls are not initially patrolled by Hold guards, and the rural village is largely defenceless. As such, the road to Whiterun is frequented by bandits during the time of the Civil War, and the residents will stay in the town.High Hrothgar
The act of climbing the seven thousand steps holds a spiritual significance for many Nords due to the belief that men were created by Kyne on this mountain when the sky breathed onto the land. This belief has led to pilgrims from all across Tamriel traveling to the Throat of the World, and several may be encountered along the mountain path either meditating or studying the etched tablets. The path leading to High Hrothgar begins in the village of Ivarstead - across the main bridge in the north-west side of town. The mountain path itself is treacherous and is host to a multitude of dangerous creatures such as Frost Trolls, Ice Wraiths, Snow Bears, Ice Wolves, Frostbite Spiders and occasionally dragons.Character Background:
Brunwulf was born during the dragon crisis and Alduin's uprising. He is a Nord, who was born within the city of Windhelm, the headquarters of the Stormcloaks. It is also Skyrim's oldest city and is where Ulfric Stormcloak sits upon the throne in the Palace of Kings. Brunwulf was born to Nord parents, who were both killed during the Great War between the Empire and the Stormcloak rebellion. Being an only child, Brunwulf lives alone within the walls of Windhelm, when he is not adventuring out in the wilds. He is a skilled warrior, as he was brought up that way by his father and mother. They taught him manners, respect and above all, honour.
Whilst wandering too close to Imperial borders, Brunwulf got caught by the Imperials and got arrested on the spot. This was due to the fact that he was a Nord and supported the Stormcloak rebellion. After his arrest, he was sent to the chopping block along with some other Stormcloaks. He took a ride on a cart, as it trundled towards Helgen. It was on the cart that he met, Ulfric Stormcloak. He too was arrested for the apparent murder of Skyrim's High King, Torygg. Brunwulf reached Helgen and General Tulluis, the Empire's leader within Skyrim, sentenced him to execution. Just before the axe fell over his outstretched neck, a dragon appeared at Helgen. A huge, black dragon, who's shout was as loud as thunder. During the confusion, this gave Brunwulf time to escape, as he headed towards the nearest place to hide. He made his way to Riverwood, as it offered him some protection. It was a Stormcloak village, so he was safe from the Imperials. After speaking with the villagers regarding the dragon attack, Brunwulf headed up to Whiterun. It was there he spoke to the Jarl up at Dragonsreach, Balgruuf the Greater.
Balgruuf advised his men to send reinforcements to Riverwood at once, as he didn't want his hold to be burnt to the ground. Soon, rumours of a new dragon attack spread around Whiterun, regarding an attack at a nearby outpost. Brunwulf and Balgruuf's Housecarl, Irileth, along with some troops, mustered to the outpost. It was there that they fought against the dragon. It was not as powerful as the black dragon but equally as dangerous.
Brunwulf and the soldiers managed to defeat the great beast and it was there that something special happened. Brunwulf found out that he was in fact, Dragonborn. He absorbed the dragon's soul right in front of everyone else. No one could believe it, as the last Dragonborn to grace Skyrim was Tiber Septim. That was hundreds of years before Brunwulf was even born. Soon after the victory at the outpost, Brunwulf heard a crack of thunder in the sky. It was not thunder, but the Greybeards up at High Hrothgar. They had summoned him to learn and master the art of the Thu-um, or the Voice. Brunwulf made his way up the seven thousand steps until he reached the huge building at the top of the mountain.
It was there that he learnt Unrelenting Force, a shout useful against his foes and indeed, dragons. He trained with the Greybeards, who were like monastic monks and were steeped in Skyrim's traditions. After a few days, Brunwulf made his way down the mountain and headed towards Whiterun. He had been asked to speak with the Jarl on many occasions, regarding the sightings of dragons. It was here that he caught the attention of the Companions, who lived within Jorrvaskar. The building resembled an upside down war ship.
They were Nord warriors, who had been protecting Skyrim for hundreds of years. The Companions were strict on honour and fighting spirit. Brunwulf was eagerly accepted into their ranks as a strong warrior, who could wield an axe or sword when needed. Their leader, Kodlak Whitemane, gave high praise to Brunwulf when he headed out with other Companions, killing a Giant attacking the villagers outside Whiterun. He was soon summoned to the Underforge, which was directly underneath the Skyforge, a great forge which the Companions use. It was there that Aela, a woman warrior and Companion, shared the blood of the wolf with Brunwulf. He became a werewolf on that night and ran for many miles through the wilderness outside Whiterun. He felt like stretching his new legs and revelling in his new gift of having the power of the wolf.
Soon after his dealings with the Companions, he headed to Windhelm to join the Stormcloaks, as he wanted to avenge his parent's death. He also wanted to help free Skyrim from the Empire's tyranny and hold over the land. Ulfric accepted Brunwulf into the ranks of his Stormcloaks and he eagerly accepted the many tasks that Galmar Stone-Fist, Ulfric's right hand man, gave him. He left Windhelm to carry on his life as Dragonborn and Stormcloak.Personality:
Brunwulf is a strong Nord, who is happy most when he is fighting for his lands and his people. He is not afraid to rebel against the Empire, who he believes are destroying what Skyrim truly is. Since both his parents were killed by Imperials, during the Great War, Brunwulf's feelings are heavily against the Empire. He hates most elves, as most Nords have a deep loathing for the elves. The Thalmor are some of his greatest enemies, as he has run into a few of their law keepers throughout Skyrim. He sees Ulfric Stormcloak as a hero of Skyrim, as he is a Stormcloak himself and wants to fight for the sons and daughters of Skyrim.
His loyalty and courage are unmatched when it comes to battle and protecting his friends. Brunwulf can be rather stubborn at times but does enjoy the odd joke. He is fiercely loyal to those around him and would die to defend his allies and friends. He cannot stand cowards who run away from battle or "milk drinkers" as they are known as.
Like any Nord, Brunwulf enjoys a good drop of mead or ale in one of Skyrim's many taverns. He also enjoys hearing the tales of old, which many bards around Skyrim often sing about in the taverns. He likes to meet new people and new allies, as he goes adventuring around Skyrim. He does tend to stick to himself out in the open wilderness, as he doesn't really like being distracted while hunting. He is a good hunter and enjoys hunting the local fauna within Skyrim's harsh plains and forests. He'll easily pull out his bow and take a shot if he sees a lone elk or rabbit passing within range.
Brunwulf enjoys getting into fistfights with those who offer him a fight. Many Nords enjoy testing their metal against one another and Brunwulf is no exception. He enjoys fighting in what he believes in, as in his tradtions and the many Nord values Skyrim has. The Empire is trying to ban Talos worship amongst the natives Nords and Brunwulf is heavily against that. He believes that Skyrim should belong to the Nords, as it is their lands in the first place. He believes the Empire should leave Skyrim in peace, as it has no place in the hearts of true Nords.
Brunwulf can be rather coarse at times and crass, due to his Nord heritage. Nords can come across as burly, rather ignorant and rude at times. Many of these traits tend to rub off onto Brunwulf, as he adopted the Nord way of life when he was very young. He can be racist when dealing with elves and other races, due to the fact that Nords like to keep things to themselves. This can cause friction with other races by having a narrow view on the world, which many Nords do.
If Brunwulf was put into any stressful situation, he would do what he does best. Fight. If there were no other solution to the problem, he would use his great sword or axe to solve the problem. Like many Nords, using the blade usually gets things done. Brunwulf isn't very good at problem solving, as he prides himself on his battle prowess, rather than his brawn. If he was faced with a life and death situation, Brunwulf would easily face death with courage and die in the process. Every Nord desires to end up in the mead halls of Sovngarde; the Nord after life. Brunwulf would face the threat and if he did die, then he would have the knowledge of knowing he did not die in vain.
Day to day, Brunwulf is a hard-working man, who aims to live his life to the full. Being Dragonborn, this gives him the knowledge knowing his was picked for something great. The Greybeards did not idly choose to summon him to High Hrothgar. He sees everyday as a challenge and never decides to give up on anything, no matter how hard the challenge. He wants to fulfil his destiny as the Dragonborn and the Nord warrior he is. If he did give up for some reason, he would think it cowardly and would scorn himself for doing so.Abilities:

- He has the blood of the wolf within him, given to him by the Companions of Whiterun. He can turn into a werewolf once a day and feed off others to regain his health.

- He can use sword and shield at times to defend himself against greater foes
- He has a spell, which can heal himself with.
