Appearance

Art by Rainchii

Speaking with a fluent Bretonic accent bearing a casual intonation, Andrea betrays herself as upper middle class, and usually dresses herself accordingly. She is stereotypically passionate and eccentric, though she is also prone to showing a haughty and condescending conduct befitting her Altmeri blood and Camlornian upbringing.Andrea is inquisitive, intelligent, willful and persistent, all of which supplement her Bretonic magical talent, but her analytical mindset and arrogance can cause her to either overthink or underestimate her problems. She can be blunt, callous and dismissive to a point bordering on disregard, but she is generally amicable if treated with courtesy.Andrea sees her own word as her bond, but she interprets herself freely, and tends to word her promises in ways that let her renege. She prefers to solve conflicts through diplomacy, but she will seldom hesitate if pushed to violence, and though she will gladly offer to help others she is not above finding ways to turn a situation to her own benefit.

  • Andrea loves the books written by Narsis Dren, and scoffs whenever someone tells her he's a fraud.

  • Andrea despises the Mages Guild for monopolizing magical education, and she is banned from using their services.

  • For whatever reason, those with a strong enough sense of smell might notice a bitter but subtle stench clinging to Andrea's blood.

  • Andrea is a poor healer despite her magical abilities, and only knows how to close wounds or perform blood transfusions with draining spells.

  • Andrea is rather festive, and enjoys celebrating both birthdays and Breton holidays. Her favorite holiday is the Day of Release on the 8th of Sun's Dawn.

  • Having never been good at hiding without magic despite being born under the Shadow, Andrea believes The Firmament is utter bunk. She is also terrible at sneaking around.

  • Despite her claims that she was attacked by a vampire during House Montclair's occupation of Northpoint in 2E 582, no-one who was present can corroborate Andrea's story. Even her parents outright deny it.

  • Andrea is a high-functioning sociopath, and generally regards relations between people as transactional. That said, there are a few people she values and cares about beyond their usefulness to her, whom she is willing to set aside her own needs for.

  • Taking great pride in the Bretons' Direnni heritage, Andrea's family line has a long history of emphasizing their Elven blood. Several of her ancestors have tried to woo Mer, but her closest full-blooded Elven ancestor is her great grandmother Turilwen on her father's side. Nevertheless, Andrea proudly boasts being 1/8 Altmer, and is quick to condemn anti-Elven sentiment.

Hooks

Author

Having her own publishing platform, Andrea is eager to try to peddle her writings, and willing to discuss or argue over them with fans and critics alike.

Crackpot Theorist

Though she is a scholar, Andrea subscribes to a few ideas that are a bit out there, including...

  • The Orcs were actually uplifted from boars and pigs by Malacath.

  • "Dibella" is just an Aedric alter ego of Sanguine, a clever ploy used by the Daedric Prince to infiltrate the Eight Divines.

  • Everyone is guided by "higher entities," powerful beings that are greater than the Divines and Daedra, and beyond everyone's comprehension.

  • The liminal barrier of Nirn was sustained by sacrificing the souls of previous Emperors to the Dragonfires, a process taking place during the coronation of new heirs.

  • The interplay between Anu and Padomay that created the Aurbis and all of its realms was actually a "Chaotic Cataclysm" event, and the Aedra and Daedric Princes are mortals who achieved divinity, as according to the Psijic Order.

Gamer

Andrea is an avid fan of Tales of Tribute and roleplaying, and would be eager to drag other people into her hobbies.

Occultist

Andrea's past dealings have left a mark on her, though her secrets are closely guarded. Some might read between the lines, or earn the woman's full trust.

Patriot

A proud manmer, Andrea cherishes High Rock's culture and history. She would be eager to meet fellow Bretons, or rave at people about freedom and honor.

Scholar

Focusing on history, magic, daedrology and theology, Andrea might consider partnering up with fellow scholars, or even pass on her knowledge, whether solicited or unsolicited.

Heya!Thank you for checking out my profile! Most people call me Bliss or Blissful. I'm a Norwegian with a passion for TES lore, especially Bretons, magic and Oblivion! I am also a fan of modern history, politics and choccy milk.I've been RPing since 2014, starting out on Altis Life in ArmA 3. If you're not familiar, its the forerunner to GTA V RP. I didn't take RP too seriously back then, but I got heavily into text-based RP in 2016 when I discovered it on ESO!I'm a paragraph poster, like to DM from time to time, and try to make sure the people I RP with have a blast! I can be a little bullheaded and fixate on stuff, but I put a lot of weight on communication, and I'm always willing to listen if something is bothering people.If you want to hit me up for anything, whether it's ideas for some RP or just to have a chat, you can find me on Discord at BlissfulDelusions#1997Hope you have a swell day :)
