Contest build : The Vigil of Molag Bal

Backstory : "Marion no ! » the reverberation of her voice in her coffin woke up Selena Vitalli. Always the same nightmare, the moment when the darkness came inside her heart. The loss of her partner and the fall of the Hall of Vigilants, all these thoughts continued to haunt her. She felt so weak, without a goal nor hope. Joining the Dawnguard seemed to be a good option; a suicide mission. All that changed when she met Serana, awoken from her long slumber. She gave off strength and charisma beyond her imagination. Becoming a vampire after hunting them for so long why not after all, she had nothing to lose. She embrace this un-life with all her will finding a thirst she never knew. The taste of the blood invigorated Selena's undead body. The life she took warmed her being giving her more strength . The gifts of Lord Harkon were great but even he was nothing compared to her new god. She swore to become his most faithfull servant; The Vigil of Molag Bal.

  • Glad you could manage to post this in time. I took the liberty of tagging your build for you. Also, I notice a broken image in your build just ahead of the gameplay section.

    • Thank you again Curse for your help for my first build in english

  • I'm liking the dual-playstyle you've got here. Always enjoy when a character goes through a dramatic change halfway through the playthrough. Good luck on the contest!

    • Thank you Shadon i tried to make an interrising build even without mod i'm glad you liked it

  • This is a super tragic build and story, and I'm loving it! Losing a loved one and then pursuing power for revenge... it's beautiful! Fantastic job, and congratulations on your first English build. You did amazing, friend!!!

    • Thank you for the encouragement Kendrix i appreciate it

  • I'll admit, I'm not always interested in vanilla builds, but the whole duality thing is pretty cool. Always love me some solid character development, even in Skyrim builds.

    I also have to come clean a bit and say your character worshipping Molag Bal also drew me in for obvious reasons...

    • Hello Johnnyawe thank you for your comment. The choice to make a pure vanilla build is due to technical difficulties with my computer i was oblige to make it on my old Xbox 360

  • I quite like how the character changes between the stages, you can almost say that you are playing another character.

    +1 for me

    • Thank you Nystee for tour comment and your support
