I do not know where to put it so I put it here.
If she is queen ayrenn why exactly does she differ so much from her in-game representation?
I always wondered that.
Or am i wrong here?
Does characters presented in the trailers, high isle trailer to be preciese, have their in game representation?
For example when i play swtor, wow or ffxiv characters presented in the cinematics look the same in game.
Thanks for the info,
Cheers,

    There isn't even a mer in the trailers, there's a human with cosmetic pointy ears on.

    While I agree he looks a bit more worn than his first appearance, he got killed and zombified at one point. I think that’s to be expected.

    Okay, that's a reasonable explanation. When was that? I can't remember. To be honest, I don't pay attention to these trailers much; I only watch them once or a few times for discussions after a reveal, but I'm no big fan of them (I especially hate how Dunmer don't really look like Dunmer in them, the one for the Necrom trailer didn't even have Dunmer eyes).

    Okay, but if it's that long ago, this shouldn't be the first trailer where he looks like he does now. In the High Isle trailer, he looked fairly normal, though.

    I thought he got killed and zombified in some of the very first (if not the actual first) trailer, and then showed up in Elsweyr after a long absence, caught and caged, as if he'd been outrunning the law for years.

    He did look pretty normal in the High Isle trailer, which astonished me a bit, but then he also had his face mask up quite a bit, whereas in the most recent trailer he's out in the open.

    Agree it was before Elsweyr, IIRC Mannimarco was involved.

    Very reductive to refer to her as "elven chick". Her name is Ellevenchique and she's got awesome green magic powers that can make enemies explode like pew pew bwshhh aaaah

    Oh nice, I didn't know her name was Ellevenchique. That's a VERY elvish looking and presumably sounding name. How would one even pronounce that?

    Yeah, the Nord Hero killed him then he got resurrected as part of Mannimarco/Molag Bal's forces then healed by the Altmer Hero THEN he showed back up as a necromancer in Elsweyr.

    Agreed, they're not as good without the elven eyes and ears. The eyes should be like this:

    If Queen Ayrenn is the high elf,
    then the nord is King Jorunn,
    and the breton is King Emiric.

    Don't lie, she isn't partly Breton! Of cause her name is Meralanwe. Sorry, must be Merielle. Honestly, from "mer" and "rielle" (meaning "beauty").

    Are there other trailers were he appears without mask after he's been zombified? I don't have time to watch them all at the moment. But the Gold Road trailer was really the first time I thought that he looks somehow different.

    They aren't. The name Jorunn is an interesting detail, btw. In reality, it's a female name, which always makes me think they originally wanted to create another queen as a faction leader, but then changed their concept to male - weirdly, without changing the name. Maybe they thought that no one will realize anyway (which makes it even weirder, because there are for sure many players from Scandinavia).

    Did anyone else think the Elven woman looks quite different in this trailer, like a resculpted face? I'll have to rewatch them all, but I thought the Breton looked the same. Can't say much for the Nord simce he's always got a helmet on.

    I think in the Elsweyr trailer you see him in the back of the lock-up cart without his mask, and he looks fairly haggard in that one.

    it was in the Elsweyr trailers, the breton was suddenly a necromancer

    I just went back and rewatched all of the trailers the other day. He actually became a Necro as early as Imperial City. He is killed in the very first few trailers during an anchor drop when a Daedra stabs him in the chest and leaves him for dead. The High Elf hero breaks the anchor and is incapacitated. The Nord takes her prisoner and the Breton is left to die. The next time you see the 3, the Nord is using the High Elf 's power through dark magic to break the wall to the IC while the Breton is marching on IC from the other side with an army of draugr and a black myst aura.

    Those pupils are Bosmer pupils. No other elf has pupils like that. The thing I find unsettling about the cinematic elves is the angle of their eyes since elven eyes tend to tilt more than human eyes yet in the cinematics they’re untilted.

    yea Eveli's eyes in-game are tilted more.

    though in character creation you can make your own elves have non tilted eyes so it's not impossible for mer to have eyes tilted like in the cinematics

    The eye tilt is one minor thing that doesn't annoy me that much, personally. And Eveli doesn't even look bad in that trailer. But how is this an Altmer face? She shape alone is much too rounded:

    z19fr0g9dddk.png

    Eyes are wrong, too, with the iris being much too small. And with Dunmer, it gets even worse:

    0n3d943b6xe1.png

    There's not even one thing right about her. Some people even thought she was supposed to be an orc.

    The first few trailers had flaws, too, though. Like comically large elven ears.
