Wes Shadows is a Nord who was born into a mysterious family in Winterhold. A couple of years after he was born, all of his family was assassinated, excluding him. When he was found wandering around outside, crying, he was sent to the orphanage in Riften. He stole food from the orphanage, gave himself a name, and ran away. He lived in a mysterious place, practicing magic, as he seemed to have a talent for it.

After he ran out of food and was nearly a master on Destruction magic, he left the mysterious place to gather more food. Now twelve, he ran around the forest killing weak animals and cooking them with his Flames spell, whilst still looking for the College.

Early Education

He​ was nearly 17 years old when he found Winterhold. He ran up to the College of Winterhold and asked if he could enter.

The gatekeeper asked, "what do you want to learn here?"

"I want to unravel the mysteries of the universe."

"It would seem that the college has what you seek. Now show us what you can offer. Cast Firebolt."

He casts Firebolt on the eye in the floor.

"Now go see the Master Wizard."

He ran off and found the Master Wizard. She showed him around. He then headed towards his class. He began learning at the college and learned Telepathy. He left the college after he had mastered Restoration, Mysticism, and Telepathy and ran to Whiterun, to join the Companions and learn about how to use a blade. He had successfully joined them and learned a lot while he was there. He had become a master in Heavy Armor, Archery, and One Handed by the time he left them.
