A few days ago I started Hecate in Pillars of Eternity. Since she now knows the art of jumping between games, I was wondering how she might look in some others.

It is just an early work. Her face could still use some touches. I have only done a cursory look at vanilla armors, but of those the Nightingale is the only set that works for her. There might be some futuristic body glove type mods out there that could work.

I made a quick search of rifle mods, and was very disappointed. It would be nice for her to bring along her Mk 14 or M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System with her. Or even an HK417. But nothing out there looks good. Plus they all use the crossbow animations, which really looks wrong. So she will probably be either a bowgirl or crossbow chica. Maybe a bound bow?

Don't know when or if I will ever play her. But it is fun tinkering. If anyone has ideas for armor or weapon mods, I would love to hear them.

Hecate gets medieval (or at least 4th era Tamrielic, lol)! Khajiit sees her being a crossbow kind of lady. Definitely find her a modded armor set. Otherwise, Vampire armor would look nice on her.

Wow, you quite nailed Hecate's eclectic bookish adventuress look! I mean, the glasses and hair of course, but her face and even expression really do say Hecate. Nice!

I tried the vampire armor, but the regular black version does not work for Hecate, and the Royal versions have too much color.

Acadian, your comment about Hecate's bookish look got me speculating along a wildly different path. Hecate's namesake is the Queen of Witches. So perhaps the Skyrim version of her ought to be a mage rather than a sniper? It is a very different character concept, so I don't know. But it is interesting to think about.

Well, you got me with the Triss armor of course - my fave. tongue.gif Buffy also walks the path of a mage who has used a bow - the bound bow is a great choice! So nice to see Hecate trying out Skyrim!

I did some more experimenting with bows.

Out of all of them, I think I prefer the White Spectral Bow the best. The bright white clashes with her regular black motif. But somehow it works. I prefer it to the blue of the bound bow. I think because it keeps things monochrome.

I loved the bound bow... well, except for the forky looking arrows. tongue.gif

The white one certainly retains the magical look of a bound bow and is a great choice.
