28DCD Challenge – Day Six

2/6/13: Religion and/or Spirituality

Selene worships Kynareth, goddess of wind and rain. Being homeless, she grew up mostly outdoors, and she loves all types of weather. She doesn’t even mind the harsh cold of Skyrim, unless she has to walk across icebergs to get to some remote island in the Sea of Ghosts. Falling into freezing water is not fun. Kynareth has made it very clear to Selene that she was chosen as Dragonborn, and she shows herself every once in a while in dreams or as a soft breeze on Selene’s shoulder. Although Kynareth is her patron, she also shows quite a bit of loyalty to Akatosh and Talos.

As a werewolf, Selene is also bound to Hircine; as a Nightingale, she’s bound to Nocturnal. The two daedric princes have been warned, however, that concessions must be made for the Dragonborn. What that means exactly, other than the fact that she is allowed to divide her loyalties, Selene has yet to find out. Only her death will resolve the question, so she’s not in any hurry.

  1. I like how you touched on something I always found funny. Every faction worships their own deity, nocturnal, sithis, hircin, or whatever which means when you die you are bound to them…well as Dragonborn you can potentially be bound by them all so for this to make any sense at all some sort of concession as you said needs to be made. Unless of course they just divide you up like a time share.
