TES oc time because I’ll always be weak for 4E (skyrim era). Info below the cut
my girl eivør (yes, i know, but the OC is older than that game announcement) was originally a bit different, her original iteration was a half elf half nord but the intention was always to move away from the homogeneous white-Scandinavian nords.I do not and will never hold to the skin tones being brackets per race, to me TES ‘races’ are not races at all and are regional and cultural ethnicities. Raised with different skills and adaptations depending on their homeland. So that's that on that.
Eivør is a devotee of the ancient nord pantheon when it was closer to animism and personification over distinct human-/elf-like gods. Nords place high significance on Kyne/Kynareth, goddess of nature, storms and the wind, and most importantly breath and the human voice.
Eivør sings the stories of the fox and hawk, Shor and Kyne, and all the other gods as they were and teaches the flute and drums to anyone who cannot use their voice.
