Skyrim: Riften Mafia by Isriana Skyrim: Riften Mafia by Isriana
Yeah, you really don't get to criticize. Hate to break it to you, Hemming, but it would seem that your son is a budding sociopath with a narcissistic personality disorder, your daughter has a morbid fascination to poisons, and the glorified head of your family is like the mother of all hagravens. Congrats. :P

I remember reading someone comparing the Black-Briars of Riften to the Corleone family from The Godfather - and I find it somewhat accurate. Anyway, no matter what you think of the comparison, the fact is that it's one screwed up family. I mean Bron is anything but a paragon of virtue, but even he doesn't like these guys... :D
Also, my first Skyrim comic in almost three months. Yikes, it's been a while.


Bron Martes me
Ingun, Sibbi, Maven and Hemming Black-Briar Bethesda

It's kind of cheap that you can become the head of every faction (pretty much) in Skyrim, including the savior, but nobody recognizes you or gives you due respect. Though, honestly, what backlash would I really have to face if I just walked into Riften one day and took off each of their heads? So long as I left none alive, nobody would be left to order a hit on me, nor do I think they would really care since I just got rid of the most corrupt family in Skyrim.

Maven: Anger me and I'll send the Dark Brotherhood after you.
Torlyg Dragon-Born (My corny-named Dovahkiin): Oh you mean the group of assassins I lead?
Maven: Oh, well I can send the Thieves Guild after you.
Torlyg: That reminds me! I killed Mercer, and was elected the new Guild master. And I'm Harbinger of the Companions, and Archmage of the Collage.
Maven: O_O 
Torlyg: So in other words, if YOU anger ME You'll find yourself either blown apart by a spell, torn apart by werewolves, finding all of your valuables gone, or floating in the canal with an arrow in your throat.
(At least thats what I wish I could say.)

I never noticed Ingun's morbid portion. The worst part is that she's the PLEASANT side of the family.

And I find that your comparison of Maven to Hagravens is... surprisingly accurate, to say the least.

I always imagine my Bro-vahkiin leaning in really close to Maven when she starts in, and whispering, "I AM the Dark Brotherhood, make me even more angry ... won't you, please?".

Why is there no way to watch the Black-Briars support crumble from underneath them if you kill off the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood?!

Every time Maven threatens me with a visit from the DB, I want to laugh in her face and say: "Oh yeah! Those folks in black. Well, have fun with that!"

Black-Briars and Silver-Bloods; the two most corrupt clans in Skyrim, and the reason I try to avoid Markarth and Riften. And they both gain power in the Civil War questline.

If you play PC, you should consider a mod that lets you kill them, for all their political power, it wouldn't protect them from the blade of the Dovahkiin (and he'd have a bounty after, but nothing serious)

Hemming confuses the crap out of me. He is coded as Maven's husband, but he constantly refers to her as 'mother'. There is some serious weirdness happening in that family.

((I'm honestly not afraid of Maven. She can say that she'll make my life a living hell all she likes, I know that those threats are as empty as the house next to mine. First off, I'm the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood and one of the Thieves Guild. But I'm only all that on my breton girl (who's a psychotic serial killer and has an obsession with Marcurio while this character I have here *points to icon* only has a big crush on him, not an obsessive one efrghtytrgdf). I will soon make a character where I'm the head honcho in every faction in Skyrim. But, for now, I'm just gonna stick with playing Skyrim, the RP way. :iconimsotiredplz:))
