First of all, I apologize for my bad English.

Since Oblivion, I always desired to have mu custom companions. Unfortunately, my scripting skill was not enough to manage a decent and stable script, so I was forced to use CM Companion Mod to have custom NPC by my side, helping me in fighting Daedra. I was not too happy, but this was enough for me. Today, I am in condition to do my followers for Skyrim. I like to share them with community.
This is one of them.
I hope you can enjoy travelling Skyrim in good company.

This mod adds to the Skyrim Gameworld a female Woodelf Archer named Cinthowen that can be found in Jorrvaskr in Whirerun.
If you like it, please endorse the file.

Jorrvaskr in Whirerun.

She have a complete set of light armor in her inventory, and also some money, an elven bow and a dagger. For an archer this is enough. These items will be useful to her and player, if liked.
We can discuss until tomorrow about the look of this NPC. I don't think that it is important. This is a follower mod, so it is important, in my opinion, to focus efforts on functions of the NPC, not on the look. If possible, it is right to give a good appearance to new followers, but it is a secondary thing.
The appearance of this NPC remember the face of my Glaween follower, this is an evidence, but I started a new face from scratch; my goal was to have a decent looking female woodelf. Unfortunately, my efforts don't gived hoped result. She is not ugly, but I failed in my goal to make her beautiful. Maybe that is impossible to build a decent-looking female woodelf using vanilla appearance of this race. I apologize. But in any case she is one of the best follower I never had in my game, probably the best archer I have seen in action until now in Skyrim; She will help you in your travels. This is the goal.
Please, avoid useless comments on the look of this NPC!
She live in Jorrvaskr, and is one of Companions. She Sleeps, eats, discuss there, and there she will come back when dismissed. I like this function, I will not change it. You must search for her there when help is needed, as you search Farkas or others companions.
There are several version of this file;
in some version she have warpaint and in some not, in some she have vanilla hairs and in some others not; the name of file can make you understand what kind of NPC you're downloading. For example, CinthowenVanillaHairNWNE means that Cinthowen will have vanilla hair, no warpaint and will be not essential, and so on for others versions. Best part are unessential. I don't love immortality. When she is unessential, she is protected (it is not too easy to kill her, but can die), and in any case she can be married. You must choose ONLY ONE version, according to your preferences.

In my system are installed these mods.

CBBE V3 (standard body) and the hip texture compatability pack:

Bella's Better Females version 3:

Cover Eyes (eyes 1 file):

No more blocky faces:

Joseph Antonys Lip Gloss for Better Females:

Vanilla versions should also work with a vanilla install of Skyrim, but the look will be different from screenshots.

It is very important, in my opinion, to install CM Companion Level Mod by Cutthroat Mods;
Here is the link:
This mod will update the companion's skills to their current level to keep pace with the player, so they will ever be good fighters.

Version 1.0 is the initial version of this file.

None known.

Known Issues or Bugs
If you will try to use the SkyHair version and you have not installed it, your game will CTD.
To avoid problems, I suggest to use vanilla version.
If you decide to marry her, it is better to tell her where she can live with you BEFORE she leaves the temple in Riften.
This follower was developed to work with Multi followers, CM Companion Level mod and Ask Follower Skills. Running it with these mods means keeping it clear and bug free.
This do not means that it can't be used under UFO; I haven't UFO, so I cannot say what can happen if you use it under UFO itself.
Talking of load order, it is fundamental to run this file AFTER UFO itself, this can avoid best part of eventual problems.
I can't see any reason to develop a version specifically to run with UFO. If my files are clear without it, eventual problems are to be considered of UFO itself, not mine.

You can also download my other mods:

A Breton Witchunter follower Samhair

A Cute Redguard Follower Calypso

A Nord Warrior Follower Shanya

A Wood Elf Archer follower Glaween

A Wood Elf Ranger follower Sharwyn
