A player character from the Elder Scrolls campaign I'm running.
Jamir is a redguard with a somewhat unusual upbringing. He grew up on Stros M'kai for the first seven years of his life, but it happened that during some Thalmor-related skirmishes, his parents were killed. In his greif and anger, he stowed away on the first ship full of high elves he found and attempted to attack the crew with a kitchen cleaver. Luckily this ship was not full of Thalmor, but priests and merchants. A priest of Mara named Izael got him to calm down and explain why he was attacking them, and upon learning his story, Izael felt great sympathy for him. As a result, Jamir was adopted by Izael and Izael's wife Miryenne. Of course he recieved a lot of persecution from being a redguard raised on the Summerset Isle, and from having no magical talent in a land where magical talent is a mark of prestige. But that just made Jamir a stronger person in the long run. He had the unwavering support of his adopted family and that's all he needed.
