    Ship Master


    During the Great War Kyrah was a Captain in Hammerfell's Navy. Her ship was known as the Kataryia, the fastest and most Agile ship in the Navy. Kyrah, the Kataryia and her crew were responsible for quickly boarding enemy ships and eliminating their captains. During the Great War the Kataryia was responsible for bringing down 12 Thalmor ships that way. The ship didn't hold much cargo, or many soldiers, just a hand full of the best swordsman and women in Hammerfell, they had to sacrifice things to keep the weight of the ship down so it could keep its high speed.

    Between the years of 4E 175 and 4E 180 between Hammerfell Succeeding from the Empire and the Second Treaty of Stros M'Kai, without any Empire Help with ships, one by one Hammerfell's Ships were being destroyed by the Aldmeri Dominion and just two weeks before the Treaty the Kataryia went on her Last mission. Sailing straight towards a fleet of Aldmeri Dominion ships bombarding Stros M'Kai the Kataryia got close to one ship and boarded it, however another came along side it and Thalmor Mages Incinerated the Kataryia, with the Kataryia gone and Kyrah and her crew on board an enemy ship they had no where to retreat too and the Thalmor proved too Strong for her hit and run tactics, with the crew being slain on the deck she jumped over board with the handful of men still alive and swam for the shore.

    Kyrah was devastated that her ship was destroyed and Solely blamed it on the Emperor Titus Mede II for pulling out the Imperial ships from Hammerfell and leaving them to fight alone. Although she still had great respect for the Imperials, as a few hardened veterans stayed behind in Hammerfell to fight the Aldmeri dominion even after being told to pull out.

    Kyrah then worked for the Forebears and Crowns respectively, now the civil war was over, and the war with the Aldmeri Dominion was at a stand still it was time to rebuild,being a young pretty woman her job was to infiltrate gangs and groups who where conspiring to to re-ignite the civil war or join the Aldmeri Dominion, at one point she even worked with the Alik'r hunting down an Aldmeri Dominion Sympathizer in the City of Sentinel.  Over the years she honed on her seduction skills, her swordplay, even lock picking and pick pocketing to get the information she needed, because she was light on her feet she wore little or no armour and dance around her enemies as to not hit her, she learnt a little bit of Alteration magic to help her with her defense.

    After years of being infiltrating gangs she rid all of Hammerfell from any kind of conspireres and Hammerfell was become strong again, with only a few jobs left for the Alik'r it was time to rebuild Hammerfell's army and navy again, but they didn't have the money to rebuild the Kataryia, so Kyrah was sent on yet again another mission, so head to the lands of the Nords, Skyrim, and earn as much money as she could to bring it back so they can afford to rebuild the Kataryia, if she was to succeed the boat would once again be hers and she would be given another crew.
