Do your characters know each other, or are they related?

Vezelle

You can have at least 8 characters if I'm correct. But do you roleplay that your characters know each other or are related. And also how do they interact?
For example

I have two main characters, a High Elf and a Dark Elf both in AD. Vezelle is the Dark Elf and Her friend Hydria is the High Elf. Before the s*** hit the fan and Oblivion started fallening from the sky. Hydria and Vezelle both lived in the Imperial city. Hydria is actually a immigrant from mainland Summerset and Vezelle is an Imperi native born, her father was an Imperial and her mother a Dark Elf. They both got sacrificed, and you know what happens from there.

But I pretend they each do about have the alliance and Main quests. I will buy them each their own home and give their friend a room in that home. That explains why they may share the same pets or mounts.

Do you guys do this if so I'd like you to share and give examples, we're always learning.

    I have two identical twin Altmer's. One is my Templar healer and the other is my DAD mag sorc/master crafter. They are both as short as the sliders will allow with a backstory their mother is a Breton and father Altmer. Separated at birth due to the Work Cult forces over running their birthplace and ultimately their parents passed away. Story still developing but that's what I have so far lol. My other Altmer is a mag blade thief that I am thinking about tieing into the twins story.

    Some of mine know each other or are related. Others are related to some of my best friend's characters. I've got all available spaces filled at the moment, kind of wish I could buy more. I like to make tabletop RPG expies in video games like this. ;)

    Yeah...I and my sweetie do this a LOT.

    He started playing first, and most of his characters were Male High Elves, family name Caemaire. He has a few sets of twins in there; the oldest being Akiro (sorc, old, ornery, acting head of the family) and his brother Akira (DK, now currently head of an Orsimer Clan - messy backstory involving the destruction of the Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse of the Oder of the Dragon) and as Clanhead he now has two Orsimer "Daughters" (we made them as twins) Lash gra Sharn (DK/tank [my sweetie's character) and Urgash gra Sharn (sorc/tank[mine]). They have a couple of younger brothers (Mol gro Durga [Battlemage/stamsorc] and Margul gro Durga [Templar Tank])

    Long story short; yes, pretty much all my characters are related to/in a relationship with/adopted by or somehow connected to MANY of my and my sweeties characters.
    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

    I absolutely do this. :)

    I have 11 characters (I have the 8 original slots, and then three more purchased from the Crown store) of various backgrounds and affiliations. They each have their own personalities, goals, and biases... however, they at some point met one another and now work for the same adventuring company (which has always been my justification for why ,y characters share a bank). I even have backstories on how they came across the company, like how the Dominion chapter head noticed the thief breaking into a bank and hired her on the spot as the "acquisitions officer," or how my elderly healer saved my knight's life, and now the latter feels honor-bound to act as the former's bodyguard and aide. It was all started by my main--an dunmer assassin--purely as a means to help her retrieve her soul from Molag Baal, but has since grown into a Tamriel-wide source of good deeds and Daedra slaying.

    That said, none of my girls are related, family-wise. But there are family-like relationships, especially between the Dunmer assassin and the elderly Argonian who used to be her nanny. It's a long story, but rest assured the relationship is quite adorable. :)

    Thats really cool I haven't thought of doing it that way. I'm going to try that! Do you play solo or with other people?

    In terms of family, my main, Sola, has a sister and a brother-in-law among my characters. Furthermore, one of my characters is a servant to her.

    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!"

    Most of my characters are related or at least know each other in some way.

    My main Stays-To-Shadow got drunk one night at the tavern in Riften and ended up with my tank Ahsar-Jei. She ended up with twins, my DPS Light-Within-Shadow and my healer (and probably most spoiled character) Knows-The-River. Then there's River's son, Runs-Among-Storms. When I got with my boyfriend, we married our mains and say that since Shadow's children didn't have their dad, his character helped raise them and was a father figure to them. An Imperial with an Argonian family, who would've guessed.

    I don't really do the roleplay thing, but I do name a lot of my characters as though they're related.

    For example, I have my Altmer - Korina, Irinwen, and Cerene Mothril, and my Dunmer - Nina and Arvena Ralvani and Taren and (formerly) Talys Andrelo.

    I'm not really one for role playing either. I possess two characters, one is myself, and the other is Anasazi the khajiit. He is associated with the Aldmeri Dominion, though the character representing myself ( a Covenant soldier) does not mind because he assisted the queen in Auridon, and is currently an Eye of the Queen. They are very close friends despite their differences. In fact, due to Anasazi having no home, I allow him to stay in Daggerfall Overlook.

    I have 14 chars -- 2 Vampires are married to each other have 6 adopted children -- 2 Khajiit twain's, 2 Argonian sisters and Breton who chose to become a vampire herself when she was old enough to make that chosed. The rest are thralls of the Vampire Mothers. Also, the vampire family lived close to a Bosmer village and 2 of my chars know the vampire family, but are not part of the vampire family.

    Yes, some of them are still living at time of Skyrim and others have relatives instead due that time frame.

    They all live together... if you visit my house, I have several beds and a wash room. One male khajiit shares this house with 5 females (2 dunmer, 1 redguard, 1 wood elf, and 1 breton)

    I'm considering on creating a male imperial to join the household. He will likely share his room with the breton and the redguard. The wood elf, likes to keep her own company. The dunmer sisters, well... they like cats.

He saw a resemblance to his kid brother in her and so decided to take her under his wing and teach her things he never got to teach him. They've been friends for nearly 14 years. Varryn and Suldyne are engaged to be married, through arrangement by her father. Saravyn and Varryn knew of each other before either met Suldyne, but they were never friends.

    For ESO I have a mix of characters that I roleplay as "actually living in the Second Era" or "is from the Third or Fourth Era but was caught in a Dragonbreak and is experiencing the Planemeld" as an excuse to try building them in ESO. That means two generations of Altmer and a Khajiiti woman who was married to the first Altmer's mother; a Fourth Era Khajiit descended from the Second Era Khajiit, a Reachwoman from the Second Era and a distant granddaughter from the Fourth Era, and a Dunmer who fled from Second Era Morrowind like a netch out of Coldharbour.

    Most of them don't actually meet in ESO. But because of different friendships and relationships that form in the Third and Fourth Eras, they wind up being a big happy family 1000 years after ESO. With ghostly Second Era grandparents visiting from Aetherius from time to time.

    Finally a thread like it was made for me!

    ALL of my characters know each other (I have 11 characters).
    1. My main - Cindafall, a Breton who lives in Bangkorai and is the head of the Fall family. Powerful vampire sorcerer.
    2. Adamfall, Cinda's younger brother who has become a recluse due to becoming a werewolf. He only talks to Cinda.
    3. Rissafall, the youngest of the four, stays with Cinda as long as she can, but Adam refuses to talk to Rissa.
    4. Daisyfall, the eldest of the four and the rudest. Doesn't like any of the family and stays far away. The only time she will talk to them is when she wants something...like money.
    5. Droshy, head of the shy khajiit family and an old friend of Cinda's. No longer friends due to Cinda becoming an "evil vampire". Droshy has a fear of vampires because of her past.
    6. Kavvi, Droshy's younger brother, who became a vampire. Droshy is scared of him and he hates her.
    7. Olivia, Cinda and ex's child, Olivia refuses to share the same surname as Cinda due to personal reasons.
    8. Sharp-claw, in a relationship with Droshy.
    9. Darya, a dunmer woman who grew up with her parents who were slave owners, Darya freed an argonian slave and they became good friends. Darya is also good friends with Cinda. They are currently renting out Hundings hall from Cinda's family. They live there with Droshy and Sharp-claw.
    10. Seeks-the-colours, the argonian slave that Darya freed.
    11. Tasha, a lone Redguard who loves nothing more than to slice people up with her swords. She knows life is hard but people just have to deal with it.

    I have only dabbled in a few RP events, so havent come up with much of a story for all my characters yet. Until now Ive mostly just likened their relationships to one I had with coworkers at a small firm I used to work for. We all were in and out of the same office, but hardly ever saw each other cuz we were always solo on the road or out of the country but we all shared a limited amount of equipment and tools, sorta like sharing the eso bank, housing, and collectables.

    I only play one character - sort of. She was a Bosmeri mystic archer in Oblivion, time traveled to Skyrim then ended up in ESO.

    We found that a Bosmer mystic archer (bow/bow stamsorc in her case) is not. . . optimized. Happily we also discovered that staves are omg finally good weapons! So she allowed her 'mystic' to take over and developed the ability to also play as a magplar healer. Here, she discovered her strong nurturing side. And finally, she wanted to push her damage and remembers loving her summoned clannfear in Oblivion so she also developed the ability to play as a magsorc with pets.

    She gets up and decides which 'aura' to put on: Bowsorc, Magsorc or Magplar. Her race and looks are identical as each 'character' and she honestly treats moving from one style of play (switching among her three characters) to be not that much bigger a deal than changing her costume or hairstyle - which she does sometimes several times a day.

    She has a long and complicated history, replete with loads of fan fiction. Unlike the single player TES games, it has simply taken three 'characters' to fully represent her in ESO.
