All of my followers are created with Master Difficulty (Or Higher through Mods), and for later game in mind . That being said, if they seem broken/OP early on, or on low difficulties, that's why.
As always, my follower's are completely standalone, unless stated otherwise. I put a lot of work into their backgrounds, so I hope you take the time to read them :3
I've recently made the switch to Amazing Follower Tweaks (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/15524) upon updating my game, and I haven't looked back. I highly recommend trying it out alongside my followers. Remember to place the followers below AFT on the load order.
Please, leave comments, and endorse if you enjoy playing with my mods!
If there are any bugs or glitches, let me know and I'll gladly fix them ASAP to the best of my ability.
Version 1: Initial Release
Version 2: Realized the method I used had perks stacking up way too high, so, fixed that/Changed Morality
A descendant of a former Blade, and an Akaviri Dragon Hunter Clan, Hiko Tanzaki did what he did best; He relaxed. "The Blades aren't needed during these times anyways," he told himself.
Thinking this, he simply applied himself to mercenary work around Whiterun when in need of extra cash; slaying bandits, trolls and giants, procuring materials, and whatever else the Jarl asks of him.
While he kept his lineage a secret, his skill with the blade was well known. His name has simply escaped the radar due to his... "persuasion" of his clientele. As carefree as he is, even he is aware of the threat of the Aldmeri to anyone connected to the Blades.
"Sigh... if my ancestors were dragon hunters, why did I have to be born in THIS period. Its so dull..."
Little did he know, his thoughts would be heard by the heavens.
Upon hearing the news of the dragon attack at Helgen, and the rumors of the return of the Dragonborn, Hiko hops on the chance to travel with the hero.
"Finally! I'll get to see a real dragon up close! I wonder if they taste any good..."
Hiko's happy-go-lucky attitude belies his skill with the blade. Lightly armored, he dances around his enemies with the speed of an assassin, striking quickly while their defenses are down. His swordsmanship is rivaled by his mastery of lightning based magic. Somewhere during one of his spouts of boredom, he took up the study of the arcane. A quick learner, it turned out to be a great choice.
