......this little shit..... He's the one the writers used to introduce that 'chim' bullshit into the series making it another eastern reincarnation cliche without actually realizing the thing about those theologies that reincarnation is not seen as a good thing. The ultimate goal of Buddhism is to escape the cycle. The best game that captures this is Journey which gives the perfect feeling of sorrow when the player realizes that the character doesn't ascend and simply returns to the beginning to suffer over and over again.

Nice work thoughPeridot~Durr... I like the eyes

He KNOWS HE'S IN A VIDEO GAME!
Total badass too...second confirmed use of CHIM, unlike Tiber who only used it to wipe out a forest, and as Talos to hold the Kalpa in place, Vivec uses it to throat fuck Azura with his spear!

well technically speaking holding the kalpa in place is the biggest fuck you to the aedra. Though this is assuming that chim is the cannon of the series out of all the other constantly conflicting lore (seriously they never explain why lhorkan who has chim as well keeps making the mortal plane over and over again despite knowing it's a failure)

The mortal plane is meant to allow people to reach CHIM. Tiber Septim and Vivec are unique occurrences to this kalpa.

true but stripping souls clean in the dream sleeve hardly seems productive at that point.

Pardon if, mistaken but was it not actually because he and the other two Chimer lords killed Nerevar and thus pissed off Azura.

In any case, good picture.

Nerevar died at the hands of what's his face. It was because they went back on their vows to her and became godlings

Vivec should be the 9th divine, not freaking talos...

I love the design and everything. Honestly, I never played Morrowind, so I can't recall what he looks like ingame, but the only thing that stands out about the dual-color is the hard line down his face. I love the hands, but the hard line makes it seem more of a split image instead of a single person.

It would be neat if the lore masters explained why Vivec is half one shade and half another. :P

They did. It's to represent his role as a bridge between the Chimer and the Dunmer.

I killed Vivic once. Required a tons of potions, he didn't take to many hits to kill it was just his attacks did lots of damage, of course that makes sense since he IS Vivec
