    This build is based off of my main character for my story 'the call of the wolf.' The main character has trouble with his emotions and tries, often in vain, to balance them. They are his yinyang, in a manner of speaking, because he found he cannot live with one emotion and not have the other. He to yearns balance his emotions and make his soul whole again.

    Hasir had witnessed death, but never like this. His aunt and uncle were cruelly ripped away from him before their time by a mysterious figure. What's worse is he witnessed his aunt's death first hand, he did not see how his uncle died. Regardless of seeing his uncle die or not, his death weighed as equally heavy on his soul like his aunt's especially gruesome death. He even blames himself for her death.

    The gruesome demises of both his aunt and uncle caused a black hole to rip Hasir's soul into two seperate parts, the white wolf is his positive emotions (happiness, laughter, joy) and the black wolf is his negative emotions (hate, sorrow, self-loathing). When his soul is reformed, iF his soul is reformed, that is, he would form a mix of his white and black selves, the black and white wolf (his purest self.) In the mean time, though, he has to wrestle with these two emotions and find a happy medium.

    Hasir, is a werewolf, blessed by the sacred gift of lycanthropy by the wolflord, Hircine. Hasir was trained in various disciplines to try to keep his soul at peace, to try to offset one aspect of his soul becoming too dominant and, if this happens, he could become manic or depressed.

    Hasir was raised in the blackmarsh city of Lilmoth to two argonain parents when he was not even a month old, a great fire enveloped his home. His father and mother luckily escaped. He was sent to live with his aunt Drujeeta and his uncle Juleen in Morrowind, he was relatively happy with them until the Doomstride killed both of them. Before they died, they sent a letter to their close friend, Quinchal, a tsaesci from the land of Akavir and instructed him to take Hasir under his wing and train his to quell his destructive behavior and find a better outlet for his inner rage.

    Quinchal thought about this and decided to enroll the hatchling in a martial arts class, Hasir would learn discipline, patience and would, above all, learn to express his anger in a healthier way. Quinchal trained Hasir hard for two years until he was finally ready to test his skills on the snowy island of Skyrim.

    Hunterborn - Hasir does not buy food from vendors, he kills for his food. This mod replaces the manual animal looting system with a more natural system of skinning, dress and carving meat from animals to the world of Skyrim, it enables the user to live off the land and become one with nature

    Against common enemies (bandits, highwaymen and forsworn, Hasir utilizes his shortsword, wrath of the wilds, and with it, he easily cuts through the competition. He can also use his drain vitaliity shout to steal their health, magicka and stamina so he can finis them off with a well shot arrows from hunting bow.

    When it is time to face bosses like Karstaag, Miraak and the dragonpriests, he wisely chooses the element they are weakest to and uses that against them. He combats Karstaag's frost attack with his own fire-based attacks. For the dragonpriests and Miraak, he uses the element opposite the element the enemy dragonpriest is using.

    The Moonlight Tales mod enables Hasir to attempt to control his emotions and come close to becoming ones with his differing emotions. His good friend Inigo helps the argonian try to control his emotions by accompanying him to the greybeards and by talking to him. Hasir utilizes the Hunterborn mod as both a means of living of the land and as an excuse to let all of his frustration and anger to be released in a healthy manner.
