All versions of this mod require "Ethereal Elven Overhaul" which can be downloaded here.
The main version of this mod also requires the standalone file "ApachiiSkyHairMale_v_1_0" which can be downloaded here (NOT the main ApachiiSkyHair file; this is a separate download).
I also highly recommend "Human Eyes for Elves" which can be downloaded here, "Beards" which can be downloaded here, and "Handsome male elves and faces" which can be downloaded here (I placed the wood elf male face texture in the "Ethereal" texture folder). These 3 mods are not required, but it's what I am running in the screenshots.
Auveren is a ranger who hangs out in Whiterun's Bannered Mare Inn. (He used to have a room in Riverwood, but due to some people having issues he was moved to Whiterun.) Auveren levels with you from 2-50, and his specialties are Archery, Light Armor, One-Handed and Block. He has a number of Stealth perks to make him more useful to sneaky characters. With an Amulet of Mara in hand, he becomes a candidate for marriage as well. Please let me know if you have any difficulty with this file.
I've also included a preset file of Auveren's face, which you can enjoy from the start of the game or apply to an existing character by use of the "showracemenu" command. Simply place in your Skyrim's "Data" folder. When you load Skyrim next, make sure this preset file is loaded after Ethereal Elven Overhaul and other mods that adjust face presets; this replaces preset #10 and will conflict with other mods that do the same unless it's loaded last.
I am terrible at taking screenshots; any screens you can submit are appreciated! And check out my other mods Better Male Presets, Auleric - Nord Male Mage Follower, Vaendral - Imperial Male Follower, Stenvar Revamped, and Sven Revamped if you like my work. (And a comment/endorsement wouldn't hurt either <3).
This follower would not be possible if not for nuska's Ethereal Elven Overhaul! Thank you so much for this spectacular work.
A big thanks also goes to asianboy345 for his TERA Armors Collection for Skyrim mod, which I used for my screenshots.
v1.0: Main file upload with two vanilla hairstyle varieties.
v1.1: Now a candidate for marriage.
v1.2: Slightly edited appearance, now using ApachiiSkyHairMale.
v1.3: Starting location moved to The Bannered Mare in Whiterun. A number of Stealth perks have also been added, so Auveren will not give thief-type characters away as easily and will no longer set off floor-based traps. Credit goes to shadowtigers for the idea.
