    Oh, yes. Even more, they all are ancestors of my Skyrim character.
    My character for main quest line, Redguard Hossul, was a friend with Freyrick Hust, who is now a husband to my another character, bosmer I created for Summerset quest line. As you can guess, Hossul and Freyrick broke up their relationship because Hossul thought Freyrick's wife was a bad choice for him. It is a very short version of what happened, at the moment I'm writing full story

    I have 2 Bosmer characters who are related. Teldraelil Sagewood is a warden healer and a loyal servant of Queen Ayrenn, King Camoran Aeradan (i think that's how you spell it) and the Aldmeri Dominion. She is a devout worshiper of Y'ffre and strict observer of the Green Pact, more so then most Bosmer while her sister, Sisa Sagewood is a stamblade werewolf, who in her teen years secretly took an increasing interest in Hircine, and she eventually ran away from home and became a worshiper of Hircine, and eventually a werewolf. Since then, Teldraelil and Sisa have rarely seen each other. I am still working on the backstories for both of these characters.

    I have one character that is related to my main character Krist, and is a cousin. Other than that, they CAN all know each other. However at this point they do not all know one another. Some do, some don't. Some are simply supporting characters of others that I decided to roll.

    I noticed how old this thread is and wonder if I ever replied before now! lol


    EDIT: I did reply before!!!! LOL...but never actually answered the op question! :)

    My characters actually 'are' each other. I've been playing the same little wood elf since 2007 (Oblivion at that time), through Skyrim and into ESO. She mastered time travel long ago so chronology/era-hopping is of no concern to her. She wakes up in the morning and decides whether to grab her healing staff (healplar), lightning staff (magsorc) or bow (stamsorc) and moves among the versions of herself as easily as she changes hairstyles or costumes. Each version of her looks identical and has a different modifier to her base name (Buffy).

    I have two characters that are twins. One is the evil twin and one is the good twin. The evil twin is a vampire/thief/assassin and all around baddie. When their parents died, the evil twin stole everything including selling the house and keeping all the money, leaving the good twin penniless. The good twin steals only out of necessity but would never murder anybody.

    I actually have a hard time playing the good twin because I love vampires, stealing, and using the blade of woe. :/

    Some of my chars know each other, and a few are related. Their relationships are mentioned in my sig, aside from Slondor and Sarah's. Slondor is basically a TESified version of Slenderman I made for a guild thing a whiiiiiiile back, but I decided to expand on him one day and made Sarah, who I wasn't intending to survive the one-off event I made her for. But survive she did, and grew and evolved into her own character.

    Essentially, Slondor made a deal with one of Sarah's ancestors a little over 100 years ago; in exchange for wealth and power, her ancestor agreed that his entire bloodline would serve Slondor, even after death. So Sarah's whole family was pretty much sold into eternal servitude. She's been trying to find a way to break the 'curse' to free her family from Slondor's dominion, but so far hasn't had much luck.

    I have 7 chars so far. My consider my main (Elriah, Bormer sorceress) to be the Vestige, who meets my other chars during her travells. I'll try a spoiler-free summary.

    As a Bosmer Elriah starts out on Kenarthi's roost where she meets Dalaeneth (Altmer sorceress). Dalaeneth works in the bank of Mistral. But since there isn't enough work for her to do she fears that she's about to loose her job. She wants to help repelling the Maormer invasion but is not good at fighting. Elriah tries to show her a few things but Dalaeneth struggles a lot with destruction magic. After some time they figure out that she has a talent for illusion spells though. In the end they both travel to Auridon together where they join the Mages Guild. Elriah has to move on soon but always takes time to visit her friend whenever she's in Vulkhel Guard.

    She meets my next alt (Lost-in-Thoughts, Argonian Templar) in Stonefalls. He works as a healer for the Pact forces and has to patch Elriah up more than once. They meet again in Shadowfen after Lost heard the rumors of the Dominoin attacs on his home and came to defend it. Lost accompanies Elriah and tells informs her about the Argonian way of life. After Shadowfen is secured he decides to stay and protect his hone, should the Dominion try to invade again. She visits him several times later, when she starts working for Cyrodilic Collections.

    On Stros M'Kai Elriah runs into a Redguard (Amren Al-Attaron, Dragonknight). She rescues him from the Sea Drakes and in return he swears to fight at her side. He follows her to Betnikh but they get separated towards the end of the quest. Actually Elriah purposely eludes him because she fears he might have developed a romantic interest in her. As she does not return the feelings but doesn't want to break his heart either she decides that disappearing is for the best.

    After so much adventuring Elriah finally made enough money to buy a house and retire. Previously she had seen an advertisment for a house on Vvardenfell. On the ship she meets Paneera (Khajiit Templar) They share a cabin because the other passengers are too scared of her Senche sister. When the boat is sacked by slavers Paneera is taken to Firemoth Island while Elriah manages to reach Seyda Neen. The money for her house, though, is gone. She takes on a job to track down the slavers and eventually reunites with Paneera. Afterwards Paneera leaves to find a Skooma smuggling family member but soon enough they meet again in Vivec City.

    There they also meet Talea Sorathi (Dunmer Warden) and Revis Sorathi (Dunmer Dragonknight). They are both Buoyant Armigers who guard the temple. When Elriah begins her work for the temple Paneera joins in to assist her. Paneera usually stays in the city, first she trys to track down some mysterious dog that had been scaring people. Later she helps Revis and Talea to maintain order. Elriah does the legwork but Paneera allows her to borrow her Senche who' runs faster than any horse.
    In the end Elriah will finally get her house allthough retirement will have to wait. But when she's there she always invites Paneera, Revis and Talea.

    On Summerset Elriah meets Talea again who's travaling around during a vacation. They share their stories and work together to solve a murder in Lillandril while Elriah awaits a message from her new friends in the Psijic Order. When it does finally arrive she decides to involve Talea in the matter as she could certainly use her help. Later Talea returns to Vvardenfell and Elriah moves on to another adventure Murkmire.

    ...so to be continued, I guess.

    I really only play 3 of my characters, and of those 3, i've decided that two are brothers :'D Nacht'ir is a khajiit and my highest level character, which makes him the older brother to Do'itsu, who i made more recently. Do'itsu is a lot more mature than Nacht'ir, however! Do'itsu is serious, all work and no play, gruff and kind of grumpy c: meanwhile, Nacht'ir is Mr. Happy-go-lucky and kind of silly LOL their different personalities are a lot of fun!

    Many of mine are re-makes of my Skyrim characters, who frequently got made into NPC's in my mods, or were explicitly built for that. So although they never can meet in ESO, they know each other from Skyrim. Some have been created in earlier games, too.

    My Orc Blossom was first created in Oblivion, to take up the challenge of developing the worst starting stat in the game ( a female Orc's Personality) to the maximum. She was re-created for Daggerfall (I had to make a mod for that), and Morrowind, and Skyrim, and thus had to be an ESO character, too.

    Unna Bear-Rider recreates an NPC from my first Oblivion mod, who likewise was played in the other games. The Bear Riders almost became a mod for Skyrim, too, but there were features I could never get to work. Minx was a Bethesda character in Oblivion, who got re-made in the other games. Cat Man Dhou tested my Khajiit Hearthfires mod for Skyrim. My Bosmer Wizwen lived in my Skyrim Bosmer Hearthfires mod's home. The latest Breton, Floozie De Fault, built the Skyrim Orc Hearthfires stronghold several times, and earned her spot in ESO that way. Taminwe the Altmer worked at the Red Dragon Club in one of my Oblivion mods.

    So they've mostly met at least some of the others, but in Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, or Skyrim. The exception is Laurie Craft, who was created specifically for ESO crafting, and became a tank, instead.

    Yes, in short, I imagine that most if not all my characters are in a "fellowship", that they know each other and work together regularly. I imagine my homes as joint bases of operations (Psijic villa and Hundings palace).

    This is why it would be so good to be able to place your characters in your home, just like you can with banker/shop/fence.

    Not to mention even more needed, the ability to place numerous non interactive, NPC characters around your house to give it some life... shopkeeper, cook, bar tender, stable hand, dock worker, laborer and guards! etc etc.

    I imagine my fellowship as leaders of a thriving small community, working across Tamriel for the greater good.

    I actually haven't done this but me and my mate were joking about the idea of our ESO characters being ancestors to our Skyrim characters as the Skyrim events are something like a 1000 years after the ESO events.

    I imagine my healer being an ancestor to my other Elder scroll chars in oblivion and skyrim. They are all part of a long line of healers and worshippers of Mara and Akatosh.

    I like that idea.

    So I've mainly put thought into four of my characters;
    1) Strikes-with-Arcane, "Arc", an Argonian vampire with, tl;dr, a pretty depressing past
    2) Melina Elinia, a dunmer with a fairly standard upbringing for her culture
    3) Maxine Cauline, a Breton who, sent to Pact lands in the years leading up to the Alliance War, defected to the Ebonheart Pact
    4) Garrus Loridius, an Imperial knight who abandoned his kin as they turned to Daedric worship and the Alliance war broke out

    Arc and Melina are old friends and more, though circumstance and general awkwardness due to their relationship history means they never really interact much in the long run. It's an old wound, and neither of them ever really resolve it. Maxine is taken under Arc's wing for a while, as he becomes something of an older brother figure to her, but eventually due to Arc's nature they split paths. Garrus, with no Empire to fight for now, finds purpose as a bounty hunter of sorts after months wandering Tamriel aimlessly. He and Arc start out as enemies due to their conflicting natures but eventually turn into rivals of sorts, though there's always the thought in both of their minds that they'll end up killing eachother in the end.

    That's a pretty abridged version of it anyway, I've got much more of as cohesive story in mind I intend to write up at some point.

    I have 8 characters, only one of them is non-Khajiit. I've never seen them as related family or friends of each-other.

    I don't envision my characters interacting with one another, probably because my RL spouse also plays ESO, and we have a couple of characters that we run and level together (Jo'Randru and TwoHawks [ TwoHawks is my char ]), both Khajiit and male (deal with it) and been bonded through the ring of Mara ceremony (for the XP perks of questing together whilst grouped and bonded). I often imagine, after we log off, they are keeping Serenity Falls estate and grounds well kept, when they aren't in the kitchen cooking or baking for our Guild.

    My champion character, J'nassri-Dar, is a Nightblade with Werewolf powers, and as such he tends to be a bit of a loner, though he does have a favorite in one of my RL spouses characters.

    Well, not within ESO, I am still trying to get into the game, but I like to pretend all my TES characters, are related, with the Vestige being the "founder" of the Altrois family. The Nerevarine, despite being a dunmer unlike most others, whom are bretons, is also related, he is the half-brother of the Hero of Kvatch. However, they never met, as the Nerevarine was the offspring of HoK's father and a dunmer servant.

    Some of my characters are related, some are lovers, some are friends, some know but don't like each other, some are the progenitors of other ES characters of mine :).

    When I discovered that some folks named Hayn and Truiand happen to live in ESO's Kvatch - perhaps progenitors of Oblivion's IC guard captains Itius Hyn and Carmalo Truiand? - , I named my female Imperial Octavia Civello, imagining her to be a progenitor of Oblivion's Giovanni Civello. He deinitely inherited her eyes ;).

    My templar Galen Atrox is a faithful recreation of my fifth Oblivion character and probably one of his forefathers... and
    I would really love to recreate my Daggerfall main in ESO, but as he was an Ohmes-raht Khajiit, this isn't possible ;(.

    I'm still on my first character, but after reading this awesome thread it has made me think about how I would like to structure the relationships between any new characters that I might create. I've got so many ideas and backstories I want to work on now. :smiley:
  • SleepyMuggs
    Enjoying this thread and seeing all that others are doing!

    I def have ties between characters, with two sets of siblings among them - one set has around 60 pages of lore/game-friendly background, life-story, etc. All my chars have at least personalities and profiles, and many have additional stories written developing their characters or capturing adventures, often including in-game friends, whom I collaborate with on personalities.

    REALLY LOVE this though! May adapt something similar, @BlackSparrow - I've worked hard to try and tie some chars together, but some just don't make sense - a central organization opens the door to bringing them together in a sensible fashion while creating more creative opportunity. Really dig it - nicely done :)
    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 my 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--a 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. :)
