    Dragonborn. Does he have one specific character trait? DISCUSS.

    I'm currently doing a character sketch for my Jr Composition Class and I decided to pick the one and only Dragonborn.
    You heard me right. THE ONLY AND ONLY DRAGONBORN. Chosen for the annihilation of the World-Eater, Alduin. I'll refer to him as Dova short for Dovakhin.

    Dova, the man/women who manages to escape death and escape from the legendary dragon Alduin. I have chosen Dova for my character sketch. Now I need the community to sum up on what kind of character trait he has. I did this to of course gather information because he doesn't really have a character trait since the user is the one who makes the choices. But he has to have some kind of character trait and I can't figure it out. Tell me why that character trait would be most beneficial and give some background or proof on why that is the most dominate trait out of others.

    Ex. of traits but not limited to..

    able active adventurous affectionate afraid alert ambitious angry annoyed anxious apologetic arrogant attentive average bad blue bold bored bossy brainy brave bright brilliant busy calm careful careless cautious charming cheerful childish clever clumsy coarse concerned confident confused considerate cooperative courageous cowardly cross cruel curious dangerous daring dark decisive
    demanding dependable depressed determined discouraged dishonest disrespectful doubtful
    dull dutiful eager easygoing efficient embarrassed encouraging energetic evil
    excited expert fair faithful fearless fierce foolish fortunate foul fresh friendly frustrated funny gentle giving glamorous gloomy good graceful grateful greedy grouchy grumpy guilty happy harsh hateful healthy helpful honest hopeful
    hopeless humorous ignorant imaginative impatient impolite inconsiderate independent industrious innocent intelligent jealous kindly
    lazy leader lively lonely loving loyal lucky mature mean messy miserable mysterious naughty nervous nice
    noisy obedient obnoxious old peaceful picky pleasant polite poor popular positive precise proper proud quick quiet rational reliable religious responsible
    restless rich rough rowdy rude sad safe satisfied scared secretive selfish serious sharp short shy
    silly skillful sly smart sneaky sorry spoiled stingy strange strict stubborn sweet talented tall thankful thoughtful thoughtless tired tolerant touchy trusting trustworthy unfriendly unhappy upset useful warm
    weak wicked wise worried wrong young

    Have fun reading that...

    UNDER CONTRUCTION! SORRY.

    I was Dragonborn once. Worst week of my life.

    The only thing that stays the same is Dova's connection to Skyrim itself.

    Choose a character that isn't completely void of, well, character.

    I really didn't expect it to be like this... But. I just wanted the community to collaborate on what Dova's character traits are. So like is he...

    Mysterious
    Weird
    Courages
    Fierce
    Etc.

    Then, why that's Dova's most dominate trait. You catch my drift guys? Sorry if I'm not very descriptive.

    Thanks for the replies so far.

    It depends on the player. Seriously. You can't have an objective version of the Dragonborn, this isn't no Mass Effect bullshit.

    Calm down.

    The canon Dova is when you put every slider to the right. Focus only on hand to hand combat and wear the fanciest clothes you can find.

    He has a pretty cool helmet! Does that count as a character trait?

    In seriousness, though, a western RPG is probably the worst source material to use for what you're trying to do. I mean, you said it yourself:
    he doesn't really have a character trait since the user is the one who makes the choices. But he has to have some kind of character trait...
    No, he doesn't have to have a character trait BECAUSE the user makes the choices. Any traits won't be the Dova's (cute name, by the way), they'll be the players. (This is why I tend to favor JRPGs over western ones.) I would suggest either choosing a major NPC from the game or a different player character from a different game. Just my 2 cents.

    Quoting myself because I'm right. Seriously, if Dova were to somehow throw Skyrim, it would come back to his hand as if it were Mjolnir.

    I'll just let that sink in for a minute.

    "Dova.

    "Ben Dova."

    It's why I love Western RPGs over JRPGs. That and JRPG characters look silly in my opinion.
