Just asking, do you make yourself in any elder scrolls game?

I'm just curious, do you guys ever make yourself in elder scrolls games? I always find that making myself is quite amusing, and I never make other characters. That is just my opinion. What do you guys think?

    It's pretty hard for me to do so.

    I'm half Mexican, so that's how I look for the most part (although I can pass off as some kind of Arab-speaking person if I grow out a beard, but not Redguard). Not really a Mexican-looking race. It's to be expected, the games are modeled closely to Europe.

    For the human races:
    Bretons: Celtic, English, and French people (anybody from Brittany in France?)
    Nord: Germanic peoples (specifically Scandinavian)
    Imperial: Italian people
    Redguards: Maghrebi

    Nothing that looks like me XD. It's fine though, I'd much rather play as an elf.

    I agree. I'm Eastern European, so I look like a mix between a Breton and a Nord. Primarily Nord...

    I've heard of the new warden class. What exactly is it? Is it a cross between a mage and a dragon knight?

    Not with the physical character, but I did realize a while back that my main Breton Templar healer and his backstory is a projection of what I would want to be IRL if magic was real. Bringing peeps back from the brink of death, helping to protect the innocent from bad guys, basically saving the world! :smiley:

    Nah, I'm boring. I'd rather make a bunch of roleplay characters of fantasy races with interesting backstories.

    "Elsweyr, yay or nay?"

    Nephikah the Houseless, dunmer assassin: "If circumstances try to drive me there, maybe. Right now, it just sounds like a lot of sand in my boots."
    Swum-Many-Waters, elderly argonian healer: "The simple thought of it dries my scales. I ventured into Elsweyr long ago, but I may be getting too old to make the journey again."
    Silh'ki, khajiit warrior-chef: "This one looks forward to seeing her home sands again. Perhaps she will make her home village many fish sticks!"
    Peregrine Huntress, bosmer hunter: "I could do much with a good dragon hide."
    Lorenyawe, altmer mechanist: "I see little need to muck about some ancient tomb. Too much work to do elsewhere. No, that was not an intentional pun."
    Lorelai Magpie, breton thief: "Stealing from the Ban Daar is always a fun challenge. Sometimes, they steal their stuff back!"
    Rasheda the Burning Heart, redguard knight: "While I try to stay at Swum-Many-Waters' side, the whispers of an undead threat worry me."
    Hex-Eye Azabi, khajiit daedric priestess: "Perhaps. The lady Mephala spins many webs, and I can see there being benefit in sending me into the path of an undead invasion."
    Yngva Stormhammer, nord bandit (reformed...ish): "I hear there will be dragons. I would be a disappointment to my Nord heritage if I did not try to slay them."
    Madam Argentia, dunmer aristocrat: "I have little desire to waltz across the desert for weeks at a time. It's terrible for the complexion."
    Mazie gra-Bolga, orc scout: "Uh... I'm kinda busy up in Wrothgar, sorry!"
    Felicia the Wanderer, imperial witch-for-hire: "The Khajiit usually throw some nice contracts my way. I'm sure Jimila will have something that will take me there."
    Calico Jaka-dra, retired khajiit pirate: "This one is happy to check back on her homeland after grand adventures drew her away! Let the kittens call her -dra instead of -daro now!"
    Shimmerbeam, blind altmer psijic: "My lady Meridia does detest the undead. I may need to sneak out on my duties on Artaeum to address it."

    I can play as a reptile or a feline, and with both I can even switch to canine, if I want to.
    With options like these, why would I ever want to create myself?

    Well, I guess you could make the khajiit look as much as yourself as possible. For example, if your hair is blonde, then make the khajiits fur blonde. Also, you can create your body type on the khajiit, and give it your hairstyle

    Every one of my male characters is modeled after myself to some degree. My female character is modeled after my soon to be wife. And every one of my characters is a variation of "the Linderman" as I use my surname for many things. Each character has a different comic book related preface (Uncanny, All New, Ultimate Linderman, even an Old Man Linderman modeled after Old Man Logan in name and attitude with a look based off what I assume I'd look like in another 30 years). So yes, I totally model my characters after myself both here and in other games. My fallout 4 character looked shockingly like me for example.

    I don't however necessarily play them with my personality. My dark elf version of "me" is a night blade assassin. The redguard version of me is the most righteous, and the one I do everything on with the best of intentions. And so on.

    They are all "me"

    I have a lot of variety
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (bosmer template) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis
