This mod adds female elf follower, Tania the Hermit to your Skyrim game. Tania was the last princess of the peaceful elven kingdom hidden in Eldergleam sanctuary. One day, very powerful unknown evil trespassed on this little kingdom and destroyed all of things. The only one who is survived is Tania. After her kingdom destroyed, she becomes a hermit to avoid chase from the unknown evil. And she is wandering around Skyrim to find out the evil's identity and the reason why her kingdom is attacked from the evil. You're the only one who can help Tania because you are Dragonborn!

Tania has the role of an archer & healer on these videos. Thanks everybody and Congrats MXR on 600K Subs

* Author's Note : Follower Tania is in concept design stage of development. She is totally following vanilla follower system now. She needs to be further developed to include unique follower factions, custom voice, advanced follower functionality, and personality. Those things will be progressed gradually with future updates by myself.
