Niddhoga, Dovahkiin by Dok-aLeXa Niddhoga, Dovahkiin by Dok-aLeXa
Our Argonian, Niddhoga from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Cropped, Facial Close-up/Portrait is here: [link]

Well, my rendition of her. ;)

Bio
Niddhoga is a vexing specimen at first glance. Stoic, observant, and often appearing very cold on the outside, like the lands around her. She buries her emotions the same way that the mountains are concealed by the heavy snows. Being a long-distance archer and thieving assassin, it is a by-product of her lifestyle.
Born to an immigrant Argonian working on the docks in Windhelm, she seemed destined for her role since birth, being a shadowscale and all, it was only natural that she'd end up assassinating Emperor Titus Mede II 27 years later and consequently fighting for the Stormcloaks to liberate Skyrim from the Empire.
She sees through the facade of propaganda labeling the Stormcloaks as respecting only Nords and strives to prove herself as being both a proud individual that loves her birth-land as well as a quiet protector of its dignity; she will always be lurking in the shadows, stalking those holding power whose actions may seek to take the very breath from the legendary throat of the world.


She's Sporting:
-Some slightly modified Nightingale Armor
-Ancient Dark Brotherhood Gauntlets, Boots, Hood
-An (Exquisite) Fire-Enchanted Daedric Bow
-Ebony Arrows
-Blade of Woe



EDIT: Added a bit of snow on top of her shoulders, horns, etc. :}
And fixed a few inaccuracies.

Ooh, clever name~ I've been considering a rename of my own recently, something referencing the basilisk.

awsome pic im alwaays argonian assasin but why side with ulfric if he banned argonians from living in city to begin with

Thanks! And Cool! Sounds like a nifty character archetype. ;)

Regarding siding with Ulfric: Because it's a complex situation, as described in the mini bio. Makes it more interesting and less expected, I feel. To each their own. :aww:

Your character sounds great as well. I'm generally quite partial to more melee characters myself.

I've seen some other works of Skyrim characters, myself, that amazed me and also have been an inspiration.
It's very flattering my work might be considered in a similar light by another. :aww:

Yep, I liked the Stormcloak philosophy. It was very misunderstood on the whole. Also contrasted Niddhoga quite well, I think. Great commentary on our current society as well!

Argonians do rock! Especially in Skyrim.
In the previous Elder Scrolls games I liked their history and culture, but their in-game incarnation always felt lacking to me. They really work well in the most recent of the Elder Scrolls series, though!

Ahem! Anyway! Glad you enjoy my rendering and character. She was pretty fun to play!
