Characters

 

 

Baroness Nora Karlov
Age: 407 - Vampire
Dialogue Color: White

 

 

36aNoraSquare.png

 

 


Short description:
She is a nord vampire and the Baroness of a smaller vampire realm in Skyrim. Nora is about 400 years old and the main character of this blog. She embraces and enjoys being the vampire she is and is mostly driven by her own selfish motives and cares little about others, except for those who mean a lot to her.
Since she doesn't believe in the very concept of (human) morality as we know it she has no problems to do things considered evil by others. She will manipulate, lie, kill and betray people and do whatever is needed to get what she wants.

 

 

Long description:
Parts of her biography and origin story are shown in section 1 & 2 of chapter 2 and the following lines are a short summery of the events.
She was born in Skyrim in a small village near Falkreath more than 400 years ago as the daughter of the village chief. As a young woman she agreed to an arranged marriage negotiated by her father to a man she didn't love in order to advance her family's politics.
During the wedding night she realizes the impact of this decision on herself and her future. Her doubts turn into an argument with her finance which lead to a fight during which she kills her finance in an affect. She flees from her village and seeks shelter in a nearby cave which is home to an ancient and powerful vampire.
Instead of killing her the vampire offers her to turn her into a vampire which she accepted.
All of this means of course that she is not a pureblood vampire and she has no special relation to Molag Bal. Like most vampires she believes in Molag Bal as the father of vampires and the only true god without being deeply religious. She draws strength out of her believe in order to wield her blood magic that she uses in combat in addition to one or two one handed sword. Nora is well aware of her influence on others and uses it to seduce and manipulate others. Even for a vampire her senses are very sharp which lets her be aware of the current emotions of others and she knows very well how to take advantage of this. She cares little about rules herself but recognizes them as a powerful tool to control others.
During the events of chapter 4 Nora was named Baroness by the will Queen Isabella.

After killing the former Baron Eric Beauvais she now is the Baroness of Blackrock.

Long description:
Amelie was born as a daughter of Clan Cruel Sea, one of the noble families in Windhelm. Unlike most sons of Skyrim she was taught reading and writing in a young age and was raised to represent her clan
and her future husband's one. Thus, she is very well-mannered.
At the time she meets Nora she is relatively sexually inexperienced and under the influence of the vampire her captivity turns into an erotic advantage.
She develops strong feelings for her Mistress and is willing to do everything to please Nora to gain the sexual attention she desires.
While knowing that Nora is a vampire she is to this point unable to see more than her erotic side of her. Partially so because Nora carefully chooses the information given to Amelie and the behavior
shown to her submissive.
While not having really strong feelings for Amelie, she is more than a servant or toy for Nora and she early recognizes the usefulness of the human girl which lets her stress her relationship to Vasil and some of his friends at the end of chapter 2 to save Amelie's life.

After Nora killed Baron Eric Beauvais and claimed his castle for herself, Amelie moved to her Mistress' new castle and continues to serve her there. Besides taking care of Nora's private rooms she is also responsible for her wardrobe, hair and body hygiene.

Long Description:

Eric Beauvais is the former Baron of Nora's Castle Blackrock. Nora met him a couple of years after she was turned into a vampire. Eric found her as a roaming vampire in his realm, killing humans and causing chaos. Instead of exiling her from his realm, he took her into his mentorship.
During that time the baron introduced her to the high society of vampires and the world of luxury that was previously unknown to her (Chapter 5 Section 1-3).
Shortly after getting to know Nora Eric falls for the young vampire, starting an affair with her despite being married to an aged human wife. Despite already having the attention she desired, Nora forces Eric's human servant to kill his human wife in order to live her relationship with Eric openly. 
Despite their contradicting attitudes towards humans and drinking their blood, Nora and Eric spend more then twenty years together. During this time Eric turns the young, outcast vampire into a part of the vampire society and the person she is today. 
Eric himself was raised as the youngest son in a small village near Dawnstar in Skyrim and is destined to become a fishermen like his family.

Despite being terrified by his new existents he understood that accepting his new form is the only way to stay together with his undead wife that turned him into a vampire.
Centuries later and despite opposing a lot of the vampire ideals, vampire Queen Isabella made him one of the Barons of Skyrim. His discipline and unwillingness to drink blood and to give in to the lust and hedonism of other vampires made him the perfect candidate for a realm that desperately needed a strong ruler to restore law and order.
This quality of his became more and more problematic for the realm, as he was barely supportive of the Queen's rule and he withdrew more and more from all vampire affairs not directly concerning him. 
Nora's successful ritual of rebirth of Chapter 2, and the implied favor by the vampire god Molag Bal, brings Nora to the Queen's attention and she decides to give her a chance to claim one of the realms for herself.

Kristoff is the Thrallmaster at Nora's Court, which makes him responsible for Thrall management. A thrallmaster takes care of the needs of the human thralls (= humans to be fed on (typically similar to slaves), unlike servants, which are just humans that work in a vampire castle). This task also includes managing the blood pool of each thrall, to ensure no thralls are overfeed (to soon). In larger vampire castles the thrallmaster has thus to be able to stand up against the majority of nobles and deny them their wishes for a specific thrall or race if necessary. Sometimes thralls are used for more than just their blood, which makes the thrallmaster is responsible for their well being and hygiene. Those thralls are typically kept separated from the rest. 
Moreover it is the task of the thrallmaster to find replacement for killed and overfeed thralls. Despite the somewhat low reputation as somone who takes care of the daily needs of the thralls all of these responsibilities make the thrallmaster one of the most important position in a vampire castle as he or she is responsible for blood of all vampires. 
As a human Kristoff used to be a soldier in the imperial army and got turned about twenty years before Nora took realm in Blackrock.

Background Informations

 

Vampires in this story
The vampire pictures is a mixture of the vampires in Skyrim and a lot of the classic traits you'd expect from vampires.
There are some noteworthy differences to the skyrim lore. For example vampires actually burn in sunlight and die once exposed to too much sunlight. Besides that vampirism is not curable and they are actually died a real death before they could become a vampire.
Vampires consider themselves superior to the humans race which draws them to excessive luxury and decadence. On top of that they conclude the right to hold human thralls as a food and entertainment.
They drink blood not just for the need of survival but mostly just for the pleasure and out of appetite. By drinking blood all physical wounds are healed and they enter a state of wild abandon. In combination with the sexual arousal that comes with drinking blood a lot of vampires loose themselves and so parties mostly end in debauchery decadent excesses as well as sexual orgies. These blood rushes are not just accepted as part of their nature but actively sought out and to find some change from the boring daily life that comes after a couple of centuries.
All this led to a culture with very little restraints concerning sexual practices so that homosexuality and ever-changing sexual partners are both common and promoted.

 

 

 

Human Vampire Relationship
It is an open secret to most people in Skyrim that not just vampires exist but they also span a web of vampire realms of counties across the provinces of Tamriel.
There are countless contracts that secure the vampires influence on the human governments without actually ruling them, even though they were capable of doing so if they wanted to.
They mostly keep out of human affairs simply for a lack of interest and the problems that come with such a step. Nevertheless, they influence human politics whenever they see need and their own interests are threatened.
Besides captured humans as thralls there are many humans who willingly work for vampires. Some do it for money and the social status that come with working for an important person, while others do it mostly for the pure thrill of erotic and danger. A vampire has very little interest to kill or lose a loyal human servant that fulfills important roles in their everyday life or their castle.
Even vampires have clean, wash or govern their property.

 

 

 

The Realm
The realm is ruled by Queen Isabella and the small Council which is an assembly of all Dukes and Counts of the realm and assembles once a year. 
The vampire kingdom is characterized by a strict hierarchies of Dukes, Counts and Barons.
When necessary the monarch is able to call for the large Council which includes the members of the small council and the aristocracy of the kingdom.
Equally to the mortal counterpart Orsinium is not recognized as an own province, but instead a part of High Rock. Nevertheless orcish vampires have a special position within the realm as only they can become members of the royal guard.

Very good, this helped me to refresh my mind on Nora and her past thanks to her.

I agree with Swiftstep ; it's a sort of world character sheet in fact. Liked the consistency/exoticism of the vampire world, the attention to details and characters, the atmosphere of the images, and...

 

the dividers ! love.gif

 

I just need to add one of those in my next character sheets now. :D

Very well structured, invites the eye and the mind. Thanks very much.

It's exactly what I wanted to write. It's inviting and seducing.

Thank you very much. :) 

I was just updating this page yesterday with the characters and events of chapter 5.

Wov, even Stan, Fina, Midnight and Valentina obtained their place ! ^^ With this multiple clickable graphical menus, the universe's background, the characters' descriptions, and the chapters summaries this is a complete story sheet ; while still respecting overall baroque aesthetics, We can also see an evolution btw, with Nora's traits subtly evolving since chapter 1 till 5 I'd say.

 

Anyway, a minor typo on Thomas' description here :

Spoiler

A smaller branch of the Camonna Tong (Vvardenfell's organized crime syndicate) on the main land eventually took care of the boy and other orphans and started using them for their criminal activities.

But compliments for the sheet & maintenance again. Smiley_jap_HFR.gif

Actually I think especially the smaller characters should get one. This is mostly intended to be an index for people to look up characters they may don't know but appear in the story. Someone like Amelie, Nora or Thomas got much more screen time then Stan for example, so people might be more familiar with the main characters already and don't need the index.

Thanks! I don't think red haired Nora has much character development at all, which is typically considered a bad thing. The problem is, that she's 400 years old so she is very unlikely to change within a timeframe of 1-2 years. So we see more of the character reveled as she gets put into different situations, but we don't see actual character development. Within the flashback and in between them I want to show some character development.

Thanks for the comment, it's fixed.

At least one person is reading these character summaries. ;)

Is it possible to include a mod list that you use.

Just wanna know.

And maybe include a Nora racemenu preset file if you can.

Nora looks good for a vampire preset.

I'm not sure what you would get from a modlist, it's mostly outfits, characters/followers and locations. There are zero gameplay mods or anything in that direction included.

Furthermore I change the mods I use all the time as I'm always close to the 255 .esp limit.

Besides everything listed here, you find more mods I use for my stories on this page:

 

That covers about 60 % of the list, the rest is just random outfits.

If you see something in my stories you'd like to have you can always ask for the mods used :)

Hello, where can I download Baroness Nora Karlov, there is a house but she is not there, without her the house seems unfinished. Thanks for the answer.

She's not available for public download, but she kindly granted you living rights in her house ;) .

Thank you for your answer, but the house is really empty without her, Nora is needed as a follower, author's mod. I hope you will listen, respectfully Damon.
