The MOP Up: Elder Scrolls Online’s daughter of giants


The countdown is on for Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor. One of the characters that you will bump into in Skyrim is Lyris Titanborn, a daughter of giants and all-around amazing gal.

“What else do you need to know about Lyris Titanborn? She’s been to Coldharbour and back, so never count her out. When the danger reaches levels so terrible as to block out the sky, know that Lyris and her axe will still be standing strong, ready to face it head on. There’s no one I’d rather march into battle with than the half-giant of Skyrim.”
