I just finished Assassin's Fate by Robin Hobb, and it's left me feeling pretty raw.

9 books following decades of a character's life leave you feeling so invested in every character.

I would like to use Crestwell if/when he is approved, and I'll edit this with my second character when I've finished her character sheet.

Well, here comes round 2 for anyone interested.

I've got a couple more characters about, but they've barely done anything yet. So I thought I'd talk about my NPCs from the Rusty Axe: Agnar, Dargnin and Yel.

I'm a big fan of stories that look at heroes after the tale is over, in their twilight years. These three have a story or two to tell, that I may get round to some day.

To create Agnar I started with the imaginatively named Skyrim character of mine, Lord Sephsekla. A warrior, bard and mage. Something of a renaissance man in a tough world.

What would someone like that look like well past his prime? Would the inevitable tragedies of life break a former hero, or would he find peace in the simple life?

My main inspirations were again, Logan, also Kvothe from the Kingkiller Chronicles. There's a tiny bit of the juxtaposition of Brando and Deniro in The Godfather Part II in there somrwhere.

Dargnin followed pretty simply. A dwarven companion, quarreling but loyal, would choose to stay with his friend, even as thr years were much kinder to him.

Yel... Is still at the beginning of any story she may have.

I'm 100% in for this once I've created a new character.

Much as I'd love to try I can't find a way for Garandros Aldor to feasibly rejoin the Venatori (without dying really quickly).
