OverThinker Y’s Thoughts on Skyrim’s Popularity

I did imagine her personality so I would know what choices to pick in quests. She is a warrior that does use stealth and she has a loving wife and family. I decided that she would fall in love with Aela after training to be a member of the Companions and that she adopted one child who she met on the streets and another child who was in an abusive orphanage.

Generally my character is chaotic good so she tends to try to make good decisions, but she can just be completely chaotic in both choices and combat.
