Ok, so, I'm slowly plotting out a basic backstory for my Dunmer dragonknight, and while I've played both Oblivion and Skyrim (and need to play through Morrowind if I ever have more than an hour free time per day, heh), I'm far from familiar or comfortable with the lore of this setting as opposed to, say, WoW or Everquest. There's just so much, and such a huge history and timeline compared to (most) other MMOs and games I've RP'ed in.
Anyway, I'm fiddling with the idea of my dragonknight having started his life as a run-of-the-mill scout and hunter from Deshaan, busy supplying the Ebonheart Pact with hides, meat, and occasionally helping on the home front as needed. However, after the quarantine at Serkamora (and if this is feasible, Lore-wise), I want to have him pledge service to House Redoran and begin his training in earnest as a "hero of the Ebonheart" (and thus, going off on all those adventures across Tamriel, etc). I was thinking that his motivation may be he lost some family the Llodos plague, and now has a personal vendetta against the Maulborn/Magistrate Vox, as well as the Daggerfall Covenant, the Worm Cult, and all the other enemies vying for a piece of his homeland.
Personality-wise, I'm aiming for him to be somewhat less caustic than most Dunmer, largely disinterested in clinging to the past for the sake of the past, and ready to make alliances as needed to secure the future of his people and the Ebonheart Pact--meaning, he wouldn't really give a damn if you were a former Argonian slave, an exiled Redguard mercenary hired by the Pact, or a Khajiit smuggler selling goods to the soldiers in Morrowind for a profit so long as you are on their side.
Opinions or nitpicks are welcome, as I'm still getting a handle on all this
Also, if anyone can give some basic insight as to what life might have been like the prior 30-odd years for a relatively "normal" elf, it would be very helpful in fleshing out his youth. Thanks in advance.
