Age Meme: Laraniel by Isriana Age Meme: Laraniel by Isriana
Well, this was sort of challenging. I've never made an age meme before and it proved to be quite interesting - it's still not perfect but I think I managed to maintain some likeness throughout different ages. Also, to add some challenge I chose my Altmer mage Laraniel as a test subject. I've said this before and I'll probably say it again, but damn I'm so lost with that high elf color palette... :XD: I hope that one day I'll have time to make something like this about my other Skyrim characters, too.
Now, as far the meme itself is concerned, the elven aging is a bit tricky (hence the lack of actual ages) but I was aiming at depicting her as what would be a human equivalent of about 1, 4, 10, 15, 18, 20 and 25 years old. The last one takes place during the events of Skyrim so that would make her 240 years old, but as far the others go I have no idea what the actual numbers might be - so if anyone of you have come across a lore article or forum discussion that would shed light on subject, feel free to let me know. :D

Out of curiosity where was she during the Great War between the Empire and the Dominion? Hope she steered clear of the bulk of that conflict.

She spent most of that time in the province High Rock which (much like Skyrim) managed to stay relatively peaceful and far from front lines. As a lone, blind elven woman who kept to herself and seemed mostly interested in regaining her strength and basic magic skills, Laraniel was mostly left in peace by the locals. She isn't that fond of Thalmor agenda and she has never fought in their ranks. Laraniel has enough issues of her own as it is - no need to get tangled with some pointless crusade.

If only all of us could be so fortunate. Most of my OCs lost family in the conflict but my characters are all Nords and Imperials. Is she still blind or did her sight come back to her?

My characters (excluding Laraniel) are quite young so luckily they didn't have to witness the actual war. Bron was born a year before the Great War ended, but growing up in sacked Bravil he sure saw plenty of the aftermath of it all. Skaila is the luckiest of the three in that regard, as she was born three years after the peace treaty in Winterhold which is about as far from the front lines as one could possibly get.
Laraniel is still blind, and has been for almost a century. It has taken her a great deal of time to learn how to use her arcane skills as substitute for the sight she lost.

What's with the bandages in the second to last panel?

That'd be around the time when that magic experiment went wrong and cost her her sight.

In the second-to-last panel, why does Laraniel almost remind me of the Shaman from Darksiders II?
