Character Build: Ana the Shield Maiden



Race: Nord

(Just like her fellow Nords,Ana has a 50% resistance to frost and that's a good ability against the cold and harshness of Skyrim or the frost spells used by enemies you encounter)

Level: 75

Stats: 0 M / 50% HP/ 50% Stamina

Standing Stones: Warrior stone 1st,then Lover Stone and finally Lord Stone

Personality : Good

She likes to help people,joke and chat with them and she loves her friends a lot.

She doesn't like the Stormcloaks for their stupid war and for not seeing the true menance for Skyrim,though she agrees that banning the worship of Talos is a big nonsense.

She hates all the evil Skyrim has to offer.

She enjoys the company of Serana her only best friend.

She won't kill Paarthunax and dislikes the Blades,she sees the Greybeards as father figures.

Equipment : War axe,Bow,Light Armor,any enchanted jewelry you will find from looting (i recommend jewelry that helps you with resistance to fire,shock,magic and light armor,the ones that fortify skills like archery one handed block are also good)

Houses:: Any house its up to you to choose

Factions : The Companions,Imperial Legion,The Dawnguard

Followers : Lydia,Jennasa,Serana

Spouses : Any male NPC that you can marry ( though it's your choice to choose female spouses)
