Sprite, who just turned 15 is a sneaky miser. She will not leave any piece of gold anywhere, no matter how much she has piled up. She is a level 14 Imperial and has just joined the Dark Brotherhood. She prefers using ranged weapons and will aim her bow forever before she releases the arrow. She has gone online to figure out every recipe for Alchemy. She tends to walk around with a lot of cash. She asks me all kinds of questions before she makes a move and has not ventured anywhere without knowing what's there first. She saves constantly and will not take any risk that she cannot undo and retry. Yes she's in the Theives Guild. She goes nowhere without Lydia, the Whiterun Housecarl, and generally does not fast travel. She almost never uses her shouts, and keeps lots of food on her.
Scholar, who is 16, is a paragon. She will not consort with daedra and gets mad at me when I do. She too is an Imperial and has joined the Legion. She has decided that Solitude is the best city and is saving 25000 in order to buy a house there. She is fine with the assassinations of the Dark Brotherhood and was the first one of us to join (she chose to kill the bad soldier). She prefers riding a horse to fast travel. When it comes to battle, she is all about heavy armor and two handed weapons. Just get it done. She's a clobberer. She prefers the miscellaneous quests and finds all kinds of interesting things to do. She has got shouts that none of us have heard of, like Kyne's Voice or something like that.
Boy is 17 and a gamer's gamer. So he games the game. He plays it like Modern Warfare - kill the enemy and move on. For him it's all about speed and progress. He's a High Elf and has a devastating One Arm. He has already taken over the Theive's Guild and claims to have a tremendous amount of money. He appropriately does not tell us his cheats, but has already found an (the?) Elder Scroll. He has no problems handling the machines in the Dwarven Ruins even though he's only Level 27. He is a Werewolf and loves beast mode, although I haven't seen him do it. He gathers every sprig and leave in Skyrim and keeps about 60 different potions on him at all times, never selling any of them. I think he's only doing the main quest, or quests he's found online that provide maximum rewards.
I'm a Level 34 Redguard specializing in Archery and Conjuration. I explore everywhere and do everything all at once. I'm the most likely to meet somebody in a town and already have the item the fulfills their quest. I spent 40 days as a vampire and hated it, coming to an insane conclusion which is a story in itself. I am mostly enjoying the metagame, considering what improvements have been made since Oblivion and am most impressed with the extent to which events between factions are more well thought out and consequential to the arc of the story. I'm in the Dark Brotherhood and intend to take it over. Almost never travel without a follower and I instantly conjure a dremora and an atronach when I meet a big enemy. I'm in the Blades and have brought three followers, and very much enjoy hunting dragons with the whole crew.
