As soon as you make a new game, you will come across the character
creation window. There, you can choose your name, race, gender, and appearance. The only attribute that has a
huge affect on game play is your race, which will determine your skill bonuses and your hidden power.
The race you choose will determine your character’s appearance, but you will be able to alter a few things. Your
gender will not affect your skills much, but it may cause non-player characters to treat you differently. For
example, there is a perk in the Speech skill that will allow you to get ten percent better prices when bartering
with the opposite sex.
Here we will review some of the important choices about picking the best Skyrim character.
For even more information about Skyrim characters, we recommend the Abeona Guide:

Each race has five favored attributes, which will each have a base stat of 20, and one primary attribute, which
will have a base stat of 25. The other 12 skills will have a base stat of 15, which means you will need to work
harder to level these skills.
In Elder Scrolls Skyrim, there are ten races you can choose from for your Skyrim characters. High Elf, Argonian,
Redguard, Orc, Wood Elf, Nord, Khajiit, Dark Elf, Breton, and Imperial are the ten races. Some races are better
suited for mages, while other races are better suited for thieves and warriors.
Certain races also have special powers. The race of your Skyrim characters should depend on what you want your
character to look like, your playing style, and how you want your Skyrim characters to fight. Race may also affect
the dialogue of certain characters.
Also, some skills will be difficult to level up if you don’t have a skill bonus for them. For example, you may
not do a lot of lock picking or pick pocketing, so it might be desirable to pick a race with these skills as
primary or favored attributes. Some skills, however, are easy to level up like skills that involve magic or
weaponry. You will use these skills a lot, and they will always succeed as long as you have a proper opponent.
Once you pick your character’s race, you can adjust his appearance. In Skyrim, you can adjust many aspects of
your character’s appearance, such as weight, skin color, jewelry, feathers, horns, beard, scars, hair color, hair
style, eye color, and war paint. Your character’s appearance is for cosmetic purposes, so it will not affect game
play at all.
Since there are no classes, you need to pick a class for your Skyrim character that goes along with your playing
style. For example, if you’re a warrior, there is no good reason to pick the High Elf as your class. Once you pick
the race that will give you one of the best Skyrim characters for your gaming style, you will need to use and level
up the correct skills.
Pick skills that complement each other well. For example, you should not use destruction and archery. These
skills do the same thing, so you cannot use both of them at once, so they can work together. Now, if you want to
level up destruction, you should level up your intelligence as well, so you can have a large supply of magika at
Also, the skills you level up should also depend on how much stealth you want to use during the game. For
example, if you want to be extremely stealthy, you shouldn’t carry a two-handed sword and you shouldn’t wear heavy
Making a Skyrim character is somewhat difficult if you’re unsure of what you want. With more help in making
this difficult decision, I recommend the Abeona Guide, the best Guide and Walkthrough available for Skyrim:
