    100 Questions for...Sola Auroron

    GOklKI7.png


    Part 1: The Basics

    1. What is your full name? Sola Aldmeris Auroron
    2. Where and when were you born? Born in a village outside Cloudrest, Alinor. When? 2E563. I know I'm a bit young.
    3. Who are/were your parents? My father was a weapons enchanter for the Dominion. My mother ran the household.
    4. Do you have any siblings? Of course. My older sister, Nerwaye. For a while, our relationship was strained, but we're all good now.
    5. Where do you live now, and with whom? Still mostly a wanderer...though I visit my sister a few times a year.
    6. What is your occupation? A bit of a long story...and certainly not believable. Let's just say I'm a powerful mage who wanders about.
    7. Write a full physical description of yourself. What is there to say that my portrait can't? Altmer, a bit short for one I might add. Short brown hair, big green eyes, nearly as pink-touched skin. Sometimes get confused with a Breton, but nothing I can do about that...
    8. To which social class do you belong? Not the nobility, but by no means a peasant. I never went hungry, had an education, and lived in a nice house, if that helps to answer it.
    9. Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses? Of course not. I have a pure bloodline without any of those impurities.
    10. Are you right- or left-handed? Ambidextrous. I had to train myself that way, but it's something you should learn to do; it's really helpful.
    11. What does your voice sound like? A twist on the stereotypical overconfident Altmer accent, so I've been told. Only adds to my mage-like charm.
    12. What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently? Do well placed laughs, ums, ers, or other onomatopoeia count?
    13. What do you have in your pockets? Gold, a snack, paper and a pencil.
    14. Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics? Overconfidence? Coldness? Running away? I'm not the best as looking at my own flaws; my sister could probably go on for ages.

    Part 2: Growing Up

    15. How would you describe your childhood in general? At the time, it was great. Friendly parents, and good friends. Looking back, my parents tried to mold me into a stereotypical housewife. Their daughters did not want that.
    16. What is your earliest memory? The time I used fire magic to light my front door on fire, and then running about screaming. My father had to run and grab water from our well and put it out, and no harm done. Just goes to show how early I started out as a mage.
    17. How much schooling have you had? Fully educated in mathematics, music, reading and writing, and a strong informal education in magic.
    18. Did you enjoy school? Of course not. Who wants to learn when they can play outside? That being said, I never put in much effort, but learned well.
    19. Where did you learn most of your skills and other abilities? I taught myself real magic, not the parlour tricks they teach you in the Mages' Guild. Books and scrolls of strange origins.
    20. While growing up, did you have any role models? If so, describe them. I wanted to be strong and smart like my father. I wouldn't want that today.
    21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family? No. I tended to be a smartass. I was aggressive and belligerent. My sister and I had an on-and-off-again relationship for the longest time. My parents were...parents. I ended up running away and severing them off, but I've grown very close to my sister now.
    22. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Princess, like any other girl. My sister and I said that we'd both be queens, and married to the same king. Turns out I'm not too far from that, I guess.
    23. As a child, what were your favorite activities? Using magic to cause havoc. I've created much trouble in my village because of wild magic use. I could kill anything, including wolves or burn down houses.
    24. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display? Ignorance to the obvious. I didn't see the future my parents wanted for me.
    25. As a child, were you popular? Who were your friends, and what were they like? Small village. Not many children, and most tended to keep their distance. I was friends with my sister and an adopted Khajiit, Oldon. We're all like family now.
    26. When and with whom was your first kiss? Nobody? Gods I'm embarrassing myself, aren't I? I can be such a recluse.
    27. Are you a virgin? Yes. And never going to lose it because of recent...personal issues. I won't risk a close relationship because of what I've become.
    28. If you are a supernatural being (i.e. mage, werewolf, vampire), tell the story of how you became what you are or first learned of your own abilities. Oh?! Too long of a story to explain. I'd need hours for that! (see signature)

    Part 3: Past Influences

    29. What do you consider the most important event of your life so far? I went on an adventure, recently. Changed my life completely. Again, it's a long story to explain.
    30. Who has had the most influence on you? Myself. Ran away from my parents and built my own life. I didn't want the life they wanted for me.
    31. What do you consider your greatest achievement? Becoming a mage of my stature. It'll last forever.
    32. What is your greatest regret? Becoming a mage of my stature. Dualisms, am I right? Other than that? Running away and leaving my sister behind for so long.
    33. What is the most evil thing you have ever done? I've dabbled in some very dark magic. But trust me, I'm not an evil person! Just love the pursuit of knowledge.
    34. Do you have a criminal record of any kind? No, I'm an angel!
    35. When was the time you were the most frightened? I had to go to Coldharbour to recover something I lost...won't forget that. Only time I was genuinely afraid of what might happen.
    36. What is the most embarrassing thing ever to happen to you? Made a meal for some friends, it was horrible, and my dear sister made everyone compliment me. I was pink for minutes.
    37. If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be, and why? Parents. I have bigoted parents who care about nothing but bloodline.
    38. What is your best memory? Going on a grand adventure in Oblivion. The adventure, and the atmosphere, all of it! Greatest time of my life.
    39. What is your worst memory? Remember what I said about dualisms?

    Part 4: Beliefs And Opinions

    40. Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic? I switch, depending on the situation. I'm trying to be an optimist.
    41. What is your greatest fear? Having to betray others I love. It's more complicated than you think.
    42. What are your religious views? Those gods all exist, believe me. I won't doubt religion.
    43. What are your political views? All of those factions on Tamriel can rot; we have bigger problems at play.
    44. What are your views on sex? Doesn't affect me, don't care. Keep it out of sight and out of my hearing, and you're fine. Someone tries to get to me, then we have a serious problem.
    45. Are you able to kill? Under what circumstances do you find killing to be acceptable or unacceptable? I can take a thousand lives in a second, if necessary. I've been desensitized.
    46. In your opinion, what is the most evil thing any human being could do? A serious lie. Do what you want, but if you lie about it, you are horribly wrong.
    47. Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love? You asked me when I ran away, I would have said no. But I saw my sister meet hers, and now I believe. I'll never have one.
    48. What do you believe makes a successful life? Power, effort, knowledge, and talent. You need to work if you don't have the ability. It's something you have to work towards.
    49. How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings (i.e. do you hide your true self from others, and in what way)? No, but if someone were to genuinely ask me, I guess I would tell.
    50. Do you have any biases or prejudices? That kind of thinking is normal for Altmer. I'm glad to have eliminated most of that in myself. Not to say there aren't remnants.
    51. Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances? Why do you refuse to do it? Give up hope. I've had a thousand situations to give up hope in, at first I did, and looked at what I became. Never again. Look forward and face everything head on, and know everything will be fine.
    52. Who or what, if anything, would you die for (or otherwise go to extremes for)? Bit of a weird question for me, but my sister and her children.

    Part 5: Relationships With Others

    53. In general, how do you treat others (politely, rudely, by keeping them at a distance, etc.)? Does your treatment of them change depending on how well you know them, and if so, how? I'm a bit hard to approach, but once they get close to me, they're all good with me, and I'll be nice.
    54. Who is the most important person in your life, and why? My sister and her babies! I love to see them! Can't have a family of my own. My real family is important to me.
    55. Who is the person you respect the most, and why? Plenty of family I respect. My sister and her husband I respect greatly, and my assistant (who I consider family) too. They've all made some very difficult choices that cost them greatly.
    56. Who are your friends? Do you have a best friend? Describe these people. Sister and her husband. My assistant. Her husband is a former monk in some order, and Imperial. My assistant is a bit too strange to describe. A best friend though, well, I spend most of my time with my assistant. He's a bit hard to get to know, but he's a nice person.
    57. Do you have a spouse or significant other? If so, describe this person. No, I don't. It's best if I'm alone.
    58. Have you ever been in love? If so, describe what happened. I've been attracted to handsome men, but never fallen in love.
    59. What do you look for in a potential lover? If I were to ever fall in love, they would need to understand just who I am. Something not easy to you.
    60. How close are you to your family? Close to my sister, who I love to death. I genuinely hate my parents for what they've done to both my sister and I, and I won't forgive them. So all that matters is my sister.
    61. Have you started your own family? If so, describe them. If not, do you want to? Why or why not? I have no children, so I don't have a 'formal' family. Instead, my sister has a husband and children, and I'm their aunt. I try to visit often. There's also Oldon, their Khajiit uncle. He comes around less often. My own real family sounds nice, but I won't have one.
    62. Who would you turn to if you were in desperate need of help? The problems I deal with now, nobody could help me other than my assistant. But if I had a realistic problem, I could turn to my sister and her husband (I mention them separately because I knew them both before their marriage). Oldon and my assistant I could also turn to. Maybe three or four others who I haven't talked to in years.
    63. Do you trust anyone to protect you? Who, and why? My assistant has my trust to protect me from anything bad. He needs to be vigilant. He is the only one who can protect me, or warn me, against a real threat. Again, in terms of something bad I won't actually face, I'd trust my family.
    64. If you died or went missing, who would miss you? My sister and her family, at least the most. I'd imagine, or at least I'd hope, that my parents wouldn't care, because I wouldn't care about them. Oh, Vyrkyl, my assistant. He'd miss me too! Might not look like it, but he would.
    65. Who is the person you despise the most, and why? My parents. I've been trying to hide it for a while, but my parents, outside of wanting to, understandably, control my sister and I, my parents wanted to kill her baby. I said that her husband was Imperial, but in addition to that, the child was a ***. So I guess you can see where it went with trying to control the bloodline. She was in shock, and I got angry. That was the unforgivable part. Everyone else who's stood against me were either unaware or opportunists, nothing to hold a grudge against.
    66. Do you tend to argue with people, or avoid conflict? Argue. I generally have the best plans, so if other people think otherwise, I'll let them know why they're wrong. Also, I enjoy arguing.
    67. Do you tend to take on leadership roles in social situations? Leadership. I'm a pretty good leader, so that helps too. I hate having to sit down and take orders.
    68. Do you like interacting with large groups of people? Why or why not? Not really. People can be really strange, so I enjoy interacting with people I know personally.
    69. Do you care what others think of you? I used to, but then I realized how powerful I was, and quit caring about how others think about me. Results are more important than thoughts.


    Part 6: Likes And Dislikes

    70. What is/are your favorite hobbies and pastimes? Magic, sewing, woodworking. I tried to pick up cooking. Didn't go well. Now, I try to sew clothes and make toys for my sweet nephews.
    71. What is your most treasured possession? Huh...with so many valuable possessions, it's hard to tell. If we leave out the things that aren't physical, like my magical talent or my relationship with my sister, I guess I'd have to say it's my...you know, I've sat here for five minutes trying to think of one...I can't. Everything physical I have is replaceable.
    72. What is your favorite color? Purple! Love purple. Also partial to white and black together.
    73. What is your favorite food? Akaviri Fried Pork. Been a while since I've had it, but every time I have it, I love it. Something about exciting foreign foods.
    74. What, if anything, do you like to read? Tomes on magic. I know that's not 'fun' to most people, but it is to me!
    75. What is your idea of good entertainment (consider music, movies, art, etc.)? Experimenting with magic. When I'm done with that, it's brushing my hair, meditating, and just sitting around.
    76. Do you smoke, drink, or use drugs? If so, why? Do you want to quit? Gods no! I used to be an alcoholic when I was depressed, but I quit and I avoid drinking as much as possible.
    77. How do you spend a typical Saturday night? I've forgotten how time works...hm...just sit around and practice magic I guess.
    78. What makes you laugh? Failures of human character. Might seem cruel, but seeing others mess up is something I find hilarious, for better or worse.
    79. What, if anything, shocks or offends you? Hard to say anything; I'm used to it all. Probably something similar to the situation I was put in by my parents.
    80. What would you do if you had insomnia and had to find something to do to amuse yourself? Meditate. I've never been able to not find peace in myself.
    81. How do you deal with stress? Get it out. I don't leave that stuff in me; it makes for a bad magicka balance. Get anger out through magic mostly. Yelling in a room helps too.
    82. Are you spontaneous, or do you always need to have a plan? For me, what seems spontaneous is really just a well thought out plan.
    83. What are your pet peeves? Children crying, begging for money, complaining. Tons of things. A lot of stuff puts me off.

    Part 7: Self Images And Etc.

    84. Describe the routine of a normal day for you. How do you feel when this routine is disrupted? Normal bouts of practicing magic, meditating, and walking around Tamriel. People who try to disrupt this routine are either welcomed if it seems to have good intentions, or put down quickly if it isn't for the best.
    85. What is your greatest strength as a person? Intelligence. Everything I've done has been built off of intelligence. You can outsmart or out-think the world itself.
    86. What is your greatest weakness? Emotions. I haven't let them get in my way for quite some time, and rather, I use them to my advantage, but when you look at something with emotions, and not logic, you'll be blind.
    87. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? There's one big thing that both makes me powerful and isolated. It's a long story.
    88. Are you generally introverted or extroverted? I can play to both sides, but I prefer to keep to myself.
    89. Are you generally organized or messy? Organized. Everything has its own place. Disorder is bad.
    90. Name three things you consider yourself to be very good at, and three things you consider yourself to be very bad at. Good: magic, innovation, and leadership. Bad...er: relationships, caring about others, and cooking.
    91. Do you like yourself? Of course! I see how some people wouldn't like me, but I think that I'd be a great person to be around!
    92. What are your reasons for being an adventurer (or doing the strange and heroic things that RPG characters do)? There's not much left for me to do.
    93. What goal do you most want to accomplish in your lifetime? There's nothing I could accomplish that I haven't already.
    94. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Right where I am now.
    95. If you could choose, how would you want to die? Just disappear. No point in making it overdramatic. Make it over quickly; I don't want my family to watch me die slowly.
    96. If you knew you were going to die in 24 hours, name three things you would do in the time you had left. If that were to somehow happen, I would say farewell to my sister and her family, I'd give them the truth of what's happened to me, and then pass the torch.
    97. What is the one thing for which you would most like to be remembered after your death? Greatness. Maybe I'll be recognized for it one day, but some things are best left sealed.
    98. What three words best describe your personality? Wow, from dark to light really quickly. Hm...confident, direct, intelligent (that's a personality, right?). At least that'd be how I'd describe myself as someone looking in.
    99. What three words would others probably use to describe you? Knowing me, people would probably get everything wrong. Probably belligerent, smartass, and deviant if it was from someone who didn't know me. Someone who knew me? Perservering, smart, and utilitarian.
    100. If you could, what advice would you, the player, give to your character? (You might even want to speak as if he or she were sitting right here in front of you, and use proper tone so he or she might heed your advice…) Thoroughly enjoy your time left with your sister and her family. Keep on your current path, and stay ever observant. Not really much advice I can give you.

    About: my characters and me:
    MY MAINS (all female characters):
    NA:
    Ruvaakro Nahkriin - Breton blazing tank, vamp
    Lahvraan Do Onikaan - Altmer healplar
    Haziel-la - sweet, chubby kitty chef, mama role
    EU:
    Orthuna gra-Murug - big orcsorc, chef, mama role
    Penelope Hunter - Breton healplar
    Can't-Heal-Will-Revive - derpy Argonian warden tank, real name Izelda
    Kamii Ob’zahari - totally law-abiding, non-thief Khajiit
    I'm a female who's probably on the younger side of the playerbase, who played beta (got the monkey!) but stopped when it became P2P, and who lives in NA but plays more on EU (I do play NA sometimes, though). I love lore, backstories, and RP; I'm a casual player, I don't PvP, and I've never done a Trial. : ) My guilds are full, apologies, but I wouldn't mind making a few new friends!

    Really like this. Thanks OP! Here is mine if anyone wants to read. I have written the answers as if it is an interview, so some answers are intentionally vague and some spelling is intentionally off. Will add a couple pics later if I can. There are some minor typos and questions I would like to alter or expand on eventually.

    Edit: pics added. Artist is marble images on instagram. She is awesome. Go take a look.

    87. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

    88. Are you generally introverted or extroverted?
    Whats that? (Explanation given). Oh! Definitely the extro-one!
    89. Are you generally organized or messy?
    Heheh Probly messy. Kyrie tells me off for bein' messy.

    Hm. Good stuff... fighting. Aff-let-ic stuff. Making things. I made a bowl once!

    91. Do you like yourself?
    (Awkward silence and staring)
    92. What are your reasons for being an adventurer (or doing the strange and heroic things that RPG characters do)?

    93. What goal do you most want to accomplish in your lifetime?
    Get married!
    94. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
    In a lovely house with Kyrie. We are married. We are happy and everything is good.
    95. If you could choose, how would you want to die?
    Probly when I'm really old.
    96. If you knew you were going to die in 24 hours, name three things you would do in the time you had left.
    Oh. I don't like this question. Not answering it.
    97. What is the one thing for which you would most like to be remembered after your death?
    How I did my best to make the world better.
    98. What three words best describe your personality?
    HAPPY FUN BOSMER!! (Ekala shouted this joyfully. No other answer given.)
    99. What three words would others probably use to describe you?
    Umm... happy. Sad. Angry.
    100. If you could, what advice would you, the player, give to your character? (You might even want to speak as if he or she were sitting right here in front of you, and use proper tone so he or she might heed your advice…)
    Trust your instincts. You've changed a lot since back then. Hold on to those you love and prtoect them. They will need you in the times to come. Live and be happy, but don't be afraid to let the negativity out.
