Hey guys! I'm back!
I know most of you guys may not know me... but I wrote The Story of the Listener, and I am going to be starting a sequel to it soon. ^.^ So, I had an idea. If you guys are writing/have written a story about a character that you would like to thrust into the Dark Brotherhood, (or even into the story) then just post here, telling the character's name, and a little about the character.
My character's name in The Story of the Listener is Sarelle, a Breton woman. She is the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood. Right now, there are openings in the story for four Speakers as Coventia (another one of my characters) is a Speaker.
I have a basic storyline down for the sequel to the story. And, depending on how many people post with their characters, I'll definately select Speakers and other characters to play roles in the story (depending on whether or not I think they could fit into the storyline).
If you decide to post here, there are a few things that I would prefer you tell me about your character. These things are:
Preference in weapon
Style (stealth, mage, warrior)
Appearance (not necessarily required)
A little background information
Thank you very much for your time!
Hopefully, I'll be able to do your characters justice. If you have any questions, just ask. I'll be happy to answer them.

Wow, neat idea Kayla. I have an idea for a character that is quite different and don't know if she'd fit in anywhere. She is an assasin sent to kill a particular wizard/mage in Morrowind; but she herself is also an Enchantress Service. And she has a huge axe to grind with this Mage. His name is Justun F. Thyme and he has a psychic white hound dog named Baraka that communicates silently with him.
Our character is a very strange Race mixture ... she is half-Altmer/half-Argonian and she believes all her life that it is the fault of Justun F. Thyme that she has been cursed with such an existence. Because he is a Biotech wizard, a zoological mage - who is constantly experimenting with plants and animals and substances to see what "improvements" and new combinations he can come up with. She is convinced that he is the author of her 'abomination.'
Baraka, his faithful snowy white hound is one of his triumphs. She, Baraka, is totally multi-lingual in all animal languages and most Tamrielic humanoid ones with Elven, Daedric and Dwemer included. She also can shift-shape between her graceful egret-feathery soft-furred hound self into a Snow Wolf ... sullen, dnagerous, keen and ferocious. Justen bred these characteristics into her kind, but she is the only survivor of this particular canine experimentation of his.
Getting back to our Altmer/Argonian half-breed = her name is Sylvanna Swamp-Blossom and she basically is hating life in general and Justun F Thyme in particular because she feels that she will never breed with anyone or have a true place anywhere. She is a breathtakingly beautiful Altmer girl to look at when clothed. she looks like she could wed the crown prince of Alinor with no problems. She has glowing golden skin, delicate pointed ears dangling with graceful rows of earrings. Her tawny golden hair is long and glistenng down to her waist and her eyes are a grey shade touching on lavender. Long lashes shield people from their intense lilac penetrating gaze and her body is pure grace in motion. Which is not surprising because underneath the clothing, she has glittering, irridescent Argonian scales covering her golden Altmer skin - below the navel like unto a mermaid except, instead of a fish tail, she has Argonian legs and small lizardlike feet. AND, she has the small stub of a lizard tail which she hides by wearing voluminous gowns and skirts and robes.
She was taken in out of curiosity and pity (?) by a Vampiric Altmer Queen of an undisclosed island near Summerset Isle. She had grown up the pet/court jester of the Vampiric Court and now she has been sent to infiltrate the Dark Brotherhood and seek/destroy/bring-back-the-wizard-staff-of Justun F Thyme, whom HawNyah, the vampiress queen also hates.
*Don't know if you can use her anywhere or not, but if so - feel free to continue her story in the Dark Brotherhood. Her skills as an Enchantress and seller of enchantments and magic items usually gets Sylvanna Swamp-Blossom into the door of most places. That and those lilac eyes ....
Name = Sylvanna Swamp-Blossom
Race = Altmer/Argonian mix
Gender = very Female
Weapons = Mage staff and poison throwing daggers
Appearance = beautiful golden Altmer skin but covered in Argonian scales below the navel, long golden hair and grey/light purple eyes, lithe-graceful-extremely athletic. Great female Altmer figure. Flritation hides bitterness of attitude.
Background = the above info explains why the driving force of her life is revenge against Justun F. Thyme
Creator = Ibis Helios

Ah, I remember the Listener. It was an excellent story.
Alright, here's a coldblooded killing machine. (He's probably best suited for short appearances. Pops in, does whatever he has to do, pops out.
Name: Ro’Vir Shadowfang
Preference in weapon: Claws and his tail. Throwing daggers when not close enough.
Appearance: Pitch black fur with strands of silver. He dresses in fully black leather, without a cloak or mask.
Ro’Vir Shadowfang was created by a Lich as the ultimate assassin. Raised from birth in various techniques of killing, Ro’Vir is an expert. To enhance his already impressive abilities, Ro’Vir was also implanted with a small steel blade at the tip of his tail. The blade can be easily removed and attached. It is usually coated in poison. His other weapon is of a supernatural nature, long claws that are made out of one of the three basic elements. Fire, Ice and Lightning, depending on what he chooses.
When his training was completed, Ro’Vir was sent to the Dark Brotherhood. He easily managed to get inside the organization. He is cold, ruthless and the only answer he sees to problems involves killing. He is an assassin, nothing else and killing is the only thing he’s good at. As a result, the Dark Brotherhood tends to keep him out of the sanctuary and on a mission as much as possible. The threat of Ro’Vir killing Dark Brotherhood members inside the sanctuary is just too great to ignore.

Very, very interesting character, Ibis! I shall try to fit her in!
And your character sounds really dangerous, Jack! O.O He sounds cool though!
Aug 19 2006, 11:28 AM
Hmm. This is right up my alley.
Name: Dayne "Dead-Eye" Dinarius
Preference in weapon: Bow, very Much Bow.
Appearance:Late Thirties, Short Cropped Brown Hair. Goatee, Blue eyes. Always seems to have an Expression like he is about to cry or just saw a ghost. Noramlly wears Dark Clothing with a Black Hood.
A little background information: Little is known about Dayne Dinarius, other then his Nickname; "Dead-Eye" refers to his Mastery with the Bow, indeed, it is rumoured that he has never missed a shot, though thats probably not true. Having served the Imperial Legion as an Agent for many years, Dayne has commited his fair share of State-Sanctioned murders. Haunted by these memories, Dead-Eye wandered the lands of Cyrodiil for years, often aiding towns and travellers attemping to absolve himself of his guilt, he is a man obsessed with Redemption. Though why he now serves the Dark Brotherhood is a mystery he refuses to speak of.....
Aug 19 2006, 11:30 AM
Yay! Another character!
Dayne sounds really cool. I'll try my hardest to add everyone's character. I think so far, I can fit them all.
Aug 19 2006, 11:59 AM
Yes, I thought of you immediately when I read Kayla's post here, Black Hand!

Since this is the sequel to your previous fic, it spurred an idea:
Name: Fraluu Dreles
Age: 42, a quite fit 42
Weapon Preferences: Knives, shortswords, and throwing daggers
Appearance: Fairly standard looking (good for blending in crowds of Dunmer at least), red eyes, shoulder length black hair. He wears dyed black leather and a dark scarf around his neck to hide the scar left by someone attempting to cut his throat. His voice is now hoarse sounding because of the injury.
Background: After the crumbling of the Morag Tong, due to the death of Eno Hlaalu by the hands of the Listener, Fraluu, a member of the Tong, disbanded from the guild. His Telvanni background, serving as a parttime Agent for the House, showed him that obviously the Dark Brotherhood was the more powerful guild. He received the scar around his neck before his service with the Tong. In fact, it was his initiation somewhat as a writ had been written up for him. His disposed of the assassin sent to kill him before that assassin could completely cut his throat. The guild was impressed by Fraluu's defeat of the assassin under the extreme circumstances that they offered to remove the writ if he joined the guild.
Since disbanding, he is now searching for the Dark Brotherhood in Cyrodil, hoping that his past won't cause suspicions. He hopes that he avoided any possible followings by the Tong as well.

Ah finally you've returned Kayla, I remember your story. (I enjoyed Sarelle's relationship with Lucien)
Well I will submit a character:
Race: Dark Naryyn (see my Fan Fic)
Weapon Preferences: Glass Bow and Glass Arrows, and a Bound Dagger and Shortsword
Appearance: Verano wears black armor(padded cloth), his eyes are the red of typical dunmer/ D. Naryyn but seem to be more bloody. He is six-feet tall, and darker than his brothers(almost black, instead of grey) and has several scars along his torso.
Back Story: Formally a very successful adventureer, Verano slowly became self-centered and greedy. Recently he's murdered several small villages in the Jerall Mountains. His natural abilities have made him a highly sought out hitman/spy. Verano is uncomfortable being close to others, but he never hesitates from killing. "Some men fight because they have to, some fight because they like to."
he is definitly the latter of the two.
PS: Verano might dissapear alot(you know what I'm saying)?
Aug 20 2006, 08:52 AM
Oh! These are all very interesting characters!
I'm sure I can fit them all in.
Aug 20 2006, 09:45 AM
And it's such an interesting idea that you've had, Kayla. We all can't wait to be in your story together!

Yes, but will the master of marksman actually speak?
The weathered Imperial sat on a bench, his black hood pushed back, revealing a slightly wrinkled face, and dark circles under intense blue eyes that spoke of horrors they had seen. His gaze however was affixed to the string on his Black Bow as his fingers fuddled with the attachment.
The beautiful Altmer approached the Archer introducing herself as Sylvanna Swamp-Blossom.
Dayne looked up at the intense violet eyes, if he had any admiration for her comeliness, it did not show through his expression.
"Dayne Dinarius, call me 'Dead-Eye". Everyone does." he said with a forced half smile, focusing back to his Bow, signaling through his body language that their conversation was over.
Aug 20 2006, 02:34 PM
Excellent idea Kayla!
I like it so I´ll toss in Serene for ya!
Name: Serene (Vantinius) Catraso
Gender: So Female!
Appearance: Like this
Specialization: Healing! ...and magic. But of course she´s pretty good with that DDK she´s holding on to!
Serene´s background is thoroughly described Here
if you will bother reading it.....
The story can be found in the FanFiction section here as well......
Hope you´ll fit her in somewhere! Always good to have a healer around....
Aug 20 2006, 07:58 PM
I get to work with Serene!
Black Hand: Yeah. I do intend on Dead-Eye talking.
But, probably not very much.

You're Evil Incarnate!!! Luckily I don't have a full liscense yet so I don't need to worry about that!
I wonder what Kayla is going to do with all these characters, it seems to be getting epic in proportion. Sarelle is going to have her hands full with this lot...
I am a sweetie at heart though, so the puppy eyes are somewhat suitable. You'd never know considering the content in my fan fic
Aug 21 2006, 01:06 AM
Mmmm, a delicious preview snack! This Imperial is like a rock unto the ocean, as to Slyvanna's flritations. She sees the imobility and wonders at the depths rooted there; Dayne is so private in his rage whereas her hatred for one man burns about her collar like a witches final necktie ....
Lets see the smilies are as such :
Kayla winks cause its her idea
Lord Revan wears a wizard hat cause he's a Lord
TMM has big eyes because of his Avvy
Black Hand is in the Morag Tong
I roll my eyes cause I do that alot in RL (also go *tsk* to irritate hubby lol)
jack cloudy told me he likes to wear all black
----now--- gotta think of a Minky one! >>>>
<<<< How's that?

Aug 21 2006, 01:25 AM
Haha, Ibis I guess that works for me. You have to admit, that eye is really cool. In a creepy sorta way...
I don't think Fraluu will have huge eyes, elves in my opinion seem to be kinda squinty.
Aug 21 2006, 03:16 AM
Lol. I never wink irl. But, I'll still take the winky face since it's an awesome one.
I start school tomorrow, so I should have some time to brainstorm and write. *dances*
Aug 21 2006, 04:36 AM
Yay, dancing! Are you doing the Snoopy Dance for joy, Kayla! Have you and your boyfriend decided how often you will visit each other? I'm so glad he's not halfway acrost the country. That's hard ... high phone bills. tahaha!!
Aug 21 2006, 04:39 AM
Well, mine and his family are being VERY supportive. They will take us to see each other often, I think. Plus, he'll be coming home every week.
So, I'm very sure we'll get to see each other often.
Aug 21 2006, 08:56 PM
Hello I'm new here!
Great idea by the way, I read most of the fiction posted here but never comment, which I intend to rectify!
I hope this style of writing continues, great way to get input too.
Aug 21 2006, 10:23 PM
I started writing the story today!
I'm going to wait until I get quite a bit of it typed before I post it.
Other people are still welcome to post characters.
Aug 21 2006, 11:38 PM
Yay,,,,, our tale of the Chorrol citizens has started!! Can't wait to read the first installment Kayla. Great job
Aug 22 2006, 12:01 AM
Um...(raises small dachshund paw)- Trey's attitude and actions regarding the DB are well-documented, but... perhaps his foray in Mournhold could form a "cameo"- a reason for some in-fighting and power struggles to replace Dandras Vules, perhaps? Whatever you do, I have a feeling that this will be a great story.

I eagerly anticipate the first update of your upcoming story, Kayla. With the abundance of characters given you definitely have a lot to work with. It'll be interesting to see what you do with them, like whether you have them being rivals or a group of friends, or if envy or other emotions will be connected between them.
Those cold stone killers though are going to be fun to read about.
