I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

The Masque of Clavicus Vile is a Daedric Artifact and unique mask found in Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
As legend has it, the mask was given to Avalea, a noblewoman of some renown, after being spitefully disfigured by a servant. After making a dark deal with Clavicus Vile, she was given the mask — and subsequently became adored by all around her.
After marrying a noble Baron, Vile came to reclaim the mask, and upon witnessing his new wife’s true identify, the Baron banished Avalea from his household. Twenty one years and a day later, Avalea’s daughter — child of the Baron — returned to avenge her mother by slaying her disgraced father.
The Masque of Clavicus Vile grants its wearer a 20 point barter bonus, a 10 point speech bonus, and a 5 point magika regen bonus.
First, I thought I liked Nocturnal a lot but that was because I haven’t met Clavicus.
Second, he reminds me a lot of Loki. Mythological Loki from Norse Lore. Trickster, shapeshifter, commonly depicted as redhead, Liesmith and Silvertongue are two of his nicknames, father of Fenris (I equated him to Barbas and I don’t know why)… Also Clavicus’ Mask reminds me of ancient depictions of Loki, and lore christian descriptions too.
Third, Clavicus reminds me of Destruction from Sandman comics. Destruction is the lost brother of the Eternals, the one who rules over change, war, destruction, cicles, art and has something to do with trickery. He has a dog called Barnabás who looks A LOT like Barabas/Barbas. Is a talking dog too, likes Destruction and tends to be Destruction’s conscience. Destruction is depicted over time as a tall, more or less muscled and bearded redhaired man with a personal sense of humour, loves arts like poetry and painting even if he sucks at them, likes to cook, and has deep talks about life, but with his own sense of humour too.
That’s why I love Clavicus.
And for his twisted sense of humour.

Here’s an ax.”
