It happened again, thanks everyone!



Raina is my shot at making an Asian inspired character (with heavy Korean and Japanese cues). Being that we're playing Skyrim here though, I have to call her Akaviri. 

Raina is intended to follow alongside the Blades storyline (although she has default interactions/dialogue). As a follower, you should meet Raina in Ivarstead in the Vilemyr Inn, right before journeying to High Hrothgar. Once you can, join the Blades at Sky Haven Temple; Raina will also be able to join if you choose. If you are brave enough, venture to Bruma (I can not stress how fantastic this mod is), and find out what became of the Blades at Cloud Ruler Temple.

So I guess a little backstory.

Raina is the singular heir of the late Akavir's Emperor of Men, who was unfortunately digested in the belly of a hungry Tsaesci. With no hope left, the Emperor's closest advisors fitted Raina in a set of armor to keep her safe, and froze her away in an unbreakable sarcophagus that was later lost in the currents of the Padomeic Ocean. She drifted for millennia and eventually found her way to Skyrim. Disoriented from suddenly waking from her slumber in Winterhold, she was met by a circle of curious College mages. Knowing that she could not journey back across the ocean for the foreseeable future, she sought help from the mages. She would tell them all she remembered about her mysterious homeland, and in return they would point her in the direction of Sky Haven Temple in Skyrim: the only reminder she has of her homeland. From there, she would become interested in the Blades of Cyrodiil and what had happened to them. For now, Raina currently resides in Ivarstead, where you, the Dragonborn, bump into her. A long journey awaits you, traveller.

Raina comes with 8k/4k body and face textures, and 4k makeup overlays. Performance textures are available.

I also want to credit HHaleyy, as I used her preset as the base for Raina. 

As always, I would love to see those screenshots and videos!

If you have any questions, post a comment and I'll try to reply ASAP.

Enjoy, and happy adventuring!

Clothing/Armor Mods

I use UUNP, so many of these clothing/armor mods are made for that body mesh.

As always, what the clothing item looks like is in normal text, and what the actual ingame item name is in (parentheses) along with the link.

: Many of these websites are not on Skyrim Nexus, but all are trustworthy. I take no responsibility if you encounter any problems because of these mods!

Preset Requirements

KS Hairdos
