Skyrim The Listener's Tale Part One by SlayerSyrena Skyrim The Listener's Tale Part One by SlayerSyrena
Part one of three.

Part Two: [link]
Part Three: [link]

(Note: I've been asked for some time to tell Cevenor's story. In nearly all my comics he is only referred to as the 'Dragonborn' or 'Listener' and his name only mentioned in the credits. I was both surprised and happy when people began expressing interest in him, wanting to know more about his background, spouse and etc... So here's a little comic detailing some in-game drama Cevenor experienced along with some background info on his family. This should be done in three parts.)

Cevenor and Art by Syrena Seale
Skyrim, Cicero and Serana belong to Bethesda

Also all he ever wanted to do with his life was make his dad proud and he vowed to kill the mercs that killed his father and after collage in Cyrodil he came back to Skyrim to find his mother dead and that all his family fled all over Tameriel

Yep Skyrim rule if the female is someone you really express desire in marrying then chances are she can`t get married

Really? I let Cicero live because I stole from him.


Cicero: "Please spare me, I have no fight left in me anymore"

Me: "...No fight left eh?" *Steal 500 gold*

Cicero: "Hey! Haha that' mine! Just kidding, you can have it."

Me: *Surprised* "Well enjoy your life my friend."

Oh dear lord, I am not the only one who has suffered after trying to steal something from Cicero? Actually he was carrying my stuff, so I tried stealing it back to see his reaction... It wasn't too pleasant >.>

I know they were on a time restraint and you can only do so much, but even though I felt as though the Dark Brotherhood was the one guild with any uniqueness and character, was still too short...I just wish they could have added much more to it. I dunno how, but I got strong and found Daedric/Ebony stuff earlier than most players (where they had Lydia, I already had Borgakh the Steel Heart)...so the assassinations I gotten were too easy at that point. I was an overpowered tank in a meaningless world.

I'm sure Anyala and Ajax would take Cevenor in so long as he dosen't over step their boundaries ... which are very high anyway haha.

Cevenor mostly keeps to himself though he has been known to prank people once in awhile. Glad to hear he could (possibly) have some friends.

bigton Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2013   Artist
Ah pranks are allowed. Always good to have some fun. Boundaries that Ajax and Anyala follow are: Rape, slaughter of children, cold blooded murder, etc. Anything less is more or less accepted.

Oh, Cevenor doesn't do any of those things the only exception being the cold blooded murder part because, well, Dark Brotherhood.

Oh, poor Cevenor. I feel so sorry for him.

I think my Freya would feel sorry for him too, even if he is a vampire. (Wow. I think she might finally be cured her of her racism. Awesome.)

Can't wait to hear more.

My guy would probably feel sorry for Cevenor. Of course, he would attempt to take a greatsword to him after finding out that he is an assassin.

He frickin' HATES assassins.

I say just leave. Skyrim is cold and miserable and full of Nords. Cyrodil is much nicer.
Well it will always be home to me anyways. :) Cheydinhal seems nice enough, although I've never had much reason to stay for long myself. It makes sense as a hometown for a Dunmer.
I'm looking forward to learning more about your character.
