Describe your characters background, and origins, and how they came to be. I really hope you take the time to read my character's story. And I hope you enjoy.
Blade of the Dark Moon, a human, was found drifting in the sea by a rare band of famous Khajiit Pirates, with no memory of who he was, or how he got there. After finally waking up, days after being found, the pirates, skilled in stealth and shadow, as was their nature, taught him their ways as they helped him recover, manipulating him, and taking advantage of his lost memory in a plan to use him as a weapon for their own endeavours.
They arrived in Blackmarsh with sinister plans in mind. While the pirates were preparing, he vanished suddenly, ventured off into the marsh where he discovered a Hist tree and an Argonian Shaman living nearby. He asked the shaman questions about the tree and eventually became fascinated by the Hist, after learning what 'magical' properties it possessed. He was naturally gifted at alchemy, suggesting that at least something remained of his past existence, and began on experimenting with Hist Sap, as it was believed that when an Argonian hatchling consumed the sap, it gave them their soul, and when that Argonian died, its soul was returned to the tree and stored, ready for another Argonian hatchling to gain its soul, creating the cycle of rebirth. He wanted this 'power' to become somewhat 'immortal' and tried to change the properties of Hist Sap in his alchemical experiments. After days of experimenting, and believing he had the knowledge of immortality, he said his farewell to the Argonian Shaman and thanked him for the new knowledge, the Argonian looked at him as if he was concerned about his future and simply said, goodbye.
He returned to the Khajiits, who had been very patiently waiting for his return because they did not want to plunder without him, as they made him their weapon. Furious that they'd waited for long, they argued amongst themselves and some wanted to kill him, as he ruined their plans, but he told them about what he had learned and told them that if they kill him after he consumed the experimented Hist, he would be instantly reborn. At first they didn't believe him, until he showed them what he had created. He explained that what he had was more valuable than anything that they would plunder from Blackmarsh, and if they could mass produce it and sell it, they be will rich.
The only way to prove the theory was to put it to the test. He consumed a small amount of the new Hist Sap potion, and within seconds, began to hallucinate, as this was what happened to any non-Argonian species that consumed Hist Sap. The Khajiits standing in front appeared to have changed form in his eyes, they had turned into his enemies whom he had hunted and killed long ago in his previous existence, enemies of a human deity who's temple was washed away by the deep sea, a deity who sent his shadows to dispense justice on those who had sinned against him. The Khajiits, unbeknownst to what he saw with his own eyes, drew their blades, but were instantly cut down within the blink of an eye, and then he fell unconscious. One of the pirates, a coward, fearful of the weapon he helped create, had hidden away in the trees and witnessed the whole event, he waited until he regained consciousness and they spoke. The Khajiit asked what he remembers and he said he only remembered cutting down his enemies, but not those who saved him from the sea. Once told the truth of what happened, he was riddled with guilt, and not knowing if the Hist Sap experiment was a success, he decided to part ways with the last pirate that remained.
The pirate sailed alone back to Elsweyr, and told all those stories of a great treasure of their Khajiit Ancestors that he had found whilst on his travels, an unwieldable weapon known as the Blade of the Dark Moon, that came to life and struck down his crew and that he was the sole survivor. News of the story was spread throughout Tamriel, and the Khajiit that was once a pirate, became book writer and became wealthy through his lies, or was it a lie? Fearful of the story, people began to fear this mysterious weapon and believed that the Blade of the Dark Moon was a bad omen and would come for those who wronged society in any way, and they believed that people who were found dead, especially Khajiits, were victims of the Blade of the Dark Moon, even though nobody knew that he was in fact a real person that they probably had passed by on the road. The story of course was not believed by many also, and crime and many other wrong doings were still being committed.
The Blade of the Dark Moon, many years later, mysteriously ended up being washed up on the beaches in Daggerfall. After regaining consciousness, and not remembering a single thing from all those years ago, weak and hungry, he made his way into The Rosy Lion Inn where he met and befriended a man who had just finished reading a particular book. The man gave him the book and that night he began to read it. Whilst reading the book, his head began to hurt, until his mind was suddenly blasted with visions and flashbacks of all the things he had done. He remembered everything, he knew he was the Blade of the Dark Moon, and believed that people would fear him if they knew who he was. Knowing what skills he possessed, he decided to join the Daggerfall Covenant and form his own guild known as Blade of the Dark Moon, and from there his story goes on.
Was the Blade of the Dark Moon reborn from the sea? As Argonians were reborn from the Hist? Was his Hist Sap experiment a success? Was he in fact the deity mentioned from his hallucinations? It is up to you the reader to decide.
