Hunted By The Thalmor by KaelaCroftArt Hunted By The Thalmor by KaelaCroftArt
This is my other Skyrim character who's name escapes me...
He is a High Elf Ex-Thalmor assassin turned thief and part time vampire. Being a vampire got annoying so I had to cure him.
I use mostly conjuration spells with this character, it is rather enjoyable to just have my minions do all my work. Oh, and
using the bound bow is really fun too.

I love the art. My character's a tagline, she's a mage though. My character's story is similar to yours. She wanted to become a member of the thalmor, but for the position she wanted ( a spy) she'd have to prove herself through magic. She only knew the spells flames and healing. Little did she know that the tagline disliked her because she was raised by "animalistic" orcs. Anyway, since Sapphira had been raised by "pig elves" the tagline decided that it was better that they "appropriately" dispose of her for"ruining" the thalmor' s bloodline ( they'd assumed she'd taken up the orc' s culture and that she was to marry an orc and to bare his children). So they told her that she was to meet a thalmor associate at the border to learn spells, which was also "coincidentally" the day an imperial ambush was supposed to capture the infamous Ulfric and his followers. By the time poor Sapphire knew what was going on, it was too late. She'd been knocked unconscious by an imperial and awoke to find herself in binds. After escaping her near death, Sapphira went around Skyrim studying magic and its properties all that she could, all the while mastering spells. After a period of time she convinced herself to research magic in Winterhold (where she met and fell in love with her future husband Odmund). After years of work and saving college she became the Arch Mage, the position where she made it very clear to the thalmor there'd be no more observing the college.. After that, the thalmor regretted having rejected her. Then she killed Alduin with her magic a few years later and was recognized as the Thames of Skyrim. She gave birth to twin sons named Faelyn and Gantar. And almost everyone lived happily ever after!

I really like your character's background, especially the whole Orc side of it. 
I really never know my character's story until I'm halfway through the game lol.

Lovely work, great style and I really like the muted colours with a subtle warm/cold contrast.

Very good indeed! But if I had to have a problem with it, it would be the ears, they're a bit too long but besides that it's perfect.
