Titles: Petra Doom-Driven, Dragonborn, Dovahkiin, Dragon Queen (By Vex) Sotrahkun

Petra is the Dovahkiin of this story. A Nord born in Cyrodiil, she was raised on a farm in the north with her parents when strange events lead her to Skyrim. The events at Helgen and the Western Watchtower leave her deeply traumatized and extremely fearful of Dragons. She heads to Riften and joins the Thieves Guild at the behest of Brynjolf, who discovers who she really is.

  • Action Girl: As long as it's not dragons, she's a fighter.
  • The Chosen One: Dovahkiin of the ages. She doesn't want the role, but comes to accept it.
  • Cry into Chest: With Brynjolf any time she just bursts into tears.
  • Happily Failed Suicide: Played with. Petra didn't want to die in the first place but it would have been best for the world if she did (It Makes Sense in Context) she goes along with it due to the Arc Words. Brynjolf saves her and forces her to promise not to do it again. She was slightly unhappy that it failed and had still thought about it but sticks to the promise.
  • Hates Being Touched: Petra will not allow anyone to touch her, unless your name is Brynjolf or Ayisha.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: Petra of course at the start. She mellows out a bit over the course of the story.

Tropes that appear in Chronophobia

After the Cosmic Retcon. Petra's personality is given a bit of a shift as well as how events unfolded once more that she's a much different person, although there are many tropes that remain the same, hinting something else is on the horizon for the Dragonborn.

  • Amnesia Missed a Spot: In a way, this was supposed to happen. While Brynjolf's memories of the this timeline was slowly fading into his mind, Petra's is the opposite. Her memories are slowly returning to her current self, but she's getting confused by it all and is having a hard time understanding it all.
  • The Champion: Fulfills her destiny as Dragonborn without much hassle and is suggested to follow the games mains storyline to the end. Although things change rapidly afterwards into the Dawnguard storyline.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Not that Petra couldn't be badass when she tried, this time she manages to actually join the Companions and defeat Alduin the normal way without any sign of her previous phobia.


Titles: Red-headed bastard (courtesy of Petra)

Second-in-Command to Mercer in the Thieves Guild. A nord man who is dedicated to his job and does what he can to support the Guild during it's darkest days. He finds a girl in a tattered dress and despite her stubborn nature invites her to the Thieves Guild after she manages to do the job without a hitch. He eventually finds out she's dragonborn and doesn't want to be. She comes around to his help eventually, and in time falls in love with her.

  • Child by Rape: Implied by Prolg that Mercer raped Nemetona, Brynjolf's mother and Bryn was the result.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Petra.
    • Chronophobia hints this as Petra for him. He breaks down over how much she's changed, but he still loves her.
  • Number Two:
    • To Mercer. Then to Karliah.
    • In Chronophobia, He's more like a Number Three but a number two when it comes to non-Nightingale stuff.
  • Ripple Effect-Proof Memory: The only one (besides Prolg) that remembers the old timeline. Petra is slowly remembering as well, but Brynjolf is the most well-adjusted.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Brynjolf is Petrasexual.

It was once blinding, then took the form of the dragon I had seen in the Laaglein...the one with the soft face, the glistening diamond wings, feathered main, the four curled horns like a crown, the sapphire eyes, the tail split in four and it's size seven times larger than the average dragon. It spread it's wings and shouted fire into the air.
