Introduction to my problem
Edited by Ratzkifal on November 9, 2017 9:58PM
Recently I have been trying to give my Bosmer lass a bit of character development.
Since I like being a special snowflake she would -of course- not worship Y'ffre or honor the Green Pact.
I wanted to go a bit (a lot) into the creepy and have her be a cannibal not out of religious duty but for the fun of it.
For her religious beliefs Namira was the first to come to mind of course, but I soon realized that Hircine would fit just as well for that.
Furthermore has he a strongly established cult in Valenwood.
Personally I do prefer Namira still, but from a lore standpoint I need a justification or excuse as to why she would follow Namira and none of the above.Which brings me to my question. Does anyone here got an idea for why Namira would be worshipped by a Bosmer over Hircine?
A little bit of context I gathered about the two daedra:
The main difference between the two in regard to cannibalism is their attitude.
A Hircine worshipper would put the hunt as the most important aspect of the experience, while a Namira worshipper would choose the actual meal.
Hircine likes to give his prey a chance to escape, Namira doesn't.
One of Namira's aspects is being repulsive, which cannibalism isn't to most Bosmer on default. (Something I should have considered way earlier).
For Hircine, the feast after the hunt is the prize while for Namira the feast is about giving death a purpose and breaking a tabboo.
This Bosmer was tortured to death. There is nothing left to be done.
