Inside the Character Studio (Day 1?)

Hey everyone, I am sorry this took me so long to get out. It was a tad bit more complicated than I had originally thought it would be. With any luck I will have another post out for today that way I won’t be falling behind anyone else in the challenges. Enjoy.

Welcome to “Inside the Character Studio” please give a warm welcome to our host; Mr. Jim Brisk!


Thank you… thank you. Our subject for today is a tad different, he is neither a celebrity of Tamriel or even that well-known. But for those that know him, know him to be a simple man, of simple means. Today we are going to embark on a voyage through the life and mind of one of Skyrims newest and some might say, I wouldn’t mind you but some would say, interesting immigrants…

I hate you Py!

What? No my friend, my name is Jim Brisk. You must have me confused with someone else…

Wh-what? No you’re not you’re…

Shut it I am in Character!

Fine whatever…

Please put your hands together and welcome Zander!

*sigh* It is a pleasure to be here…I guess.

Zander….you don’t mind me calling you Zander do you?

W-What? Why wouldn’t you call me Zander? My name is Zander. What the hell else would you call me? Martin?

Right, so Zander as you know from watching the show, the first thing I would like to do is to ask you 10 questions. Then we will follow-up with some general Biography. Then we will do some audience questions for you to answer. How does that sound to you?

10 questions? What is this a quiz? Am I being graded? What happens if I fail?

Nothing like that, these are just my 10 questions. I ask every celebrity these questions when we do this show.

So what you are saying is …not a quiz?

No, Not a quiz……moron….


Nothing, lets continue with the 10 questions shall we?

Uh, sure…

What is your favorite word?

That is a tough one. If I had to choose just one word, I think I would have to say my favorite word would have to be ….. wait for it………..


I really should have seen that coming.

Yes…yes you probably should have.

Let’s….just continue shall we…What is your least favorite word?

That one is a bit easier. My least favorite word is definitely, Thalmor.

What turns you on?

T-That’s kind of personal don’t you think?

Yes…yes I do, but please answer the question.

Fine if you must know. I firmly believe a sensual kiss from a beautiful woman can get any man going.

What turns you off?


Like what? Give us an example.

Do I have to?


Okay, well bad hygiene for starters. Too much hair, and I don’t mean on her head.

You mean…

Yeah, having hair on a woman’s legs, under arms or facial hair other than eye brows, emphasis on the plural there, is just …eww.



I thought you were talking about down under.

Under? Under Where? …..OH! Well that area has to be neat too, no one likes hair in their food.

What sound or noise do you love?

No sense in being shy now I guess.

Shy? You just screamed Titty! How is that being shy?

Some things are just private, that is all I am saying.

For the love of…just answer the question, we all know you are not shy!

Well I could be you don’t know, but if I must have an answer. The soft moans a woman makes when you nibble her neck.

What sound or noise do you hate?

That is a tie.

A tie?


Between what?

Snoring, and every bard I have met who has graduated from the bard college. Not a single one of them can hold a note to save their lives.

What is your favorite curse word?


What a surprise.

What? It is a great curse word.

How so?

It is so very versatile, you can use it for any situation. You can even use it to pick up the ladies. Though the woman who it works on I don’t think you would want to be with anyway.

Fair enough.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

I have a profession? Since when?

Well aren’t you a blacksmith?

No, I am a student learning to be a blacksmith. But I guess if I had to do something else I would say Bartender.

A Bartender? Really? Why?

Think about it. You are around people all day, you get to hear all the juicy gossip. See people do stupid things. Everyone knows you and likes you because you supply the spirits. And if you are lucky, at the end of the night you might get to take a cute drunk girl to bed.

What profession would you not like to do?

Poopsmith, it is quite literally a shitty job. What kind of fresh hell did you crawl out of to want that job?

If the heavens exist, what would you like to hear the Gods say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

You mean like I die and all 9 divines are there to great me, individually??

Uh….sure lets go with that. What would you like to hear them say?

Akatosh would be forced to meet every mortal and apologize for the Thalmor, he would probably say something like, ”Yeah, sorry for the Thalmor, my bad. Who knew using day old ingredients could go so horribly wrong when creating a race?” and Talos, he would tell me to pull up a seat and join him for some ale and watch Dibella dance. While Julianos and Zenithar would ask if I might have seen the Dwemer saying they turned their backs on them for only a moment and then they were just gone. The rest would just smile and welcome me home.

O…Kay…. Moving on. Lets move on to some General Biography.

I hate Biography, I never know which way is north on the compass.

…Biography not Geography…..

Oh….I knew that.

Sure you did. Now lets get this General Biography filled out shall we?

Sure why not. *looks at the list* What the hell?


Have you seen how long this is?

Yes, so?

So, I am going to be here all night filling this out.


So, why do you need all of this information? Am I filing for a home loan? Selling my first born to a Daedra?

What? No, people are just curious. Just fill it out so we can move on.

Screw you Jim Brisk…if that is your real name!

I said fill it out!

  1. Haha very good, Zander certainly is a bit of a “character”.

    I see he dodged a couple of questions though, perhaps we can delve a little deeper in those sorts of areas….

  2. That was very creative, and worth the wait. I am thoroughly looking forward to finding out more about one of Skyrim’s most colorful inhabitants.

  3. Oh dear, you made me cry from laughing. Remind me not to be drink soda when I read your stuff, it’s so very hard to get out of the keyboard…
