Are achievements in Skyrim per character or per account on steam? If the Achievements are per account is there a way I reset them?

When I say per character I mean can the Achievements I earn on one character be re-earned with another character?

They are per account. Once you've earned an achievement with one character, you can't earn it again with another character as its now unlocked for your steam account.

And there is no known legitimate way of resetting steam achievements (From here).

Resetting Achievements
Unfortunately, achievements can not be reset at this time.

The same is true for Xbox Live achievements and PSN Trophies. – Nolonar Apr 22 '13 at 22:00
@nolonar With the difference that you can play the game on an infinite amount of accounts on consoles, and on only one account on steam. – Kevin Apr 22 '13 at 22:04
@Kevin Ah, yes, that's true. But you still can't remove achievements from your profile on either platform. Still; you made your point. – Nolonar Apr 22 '13 at 22:33
You can reset cheevos with Steam Achievement Manager. – kotekzot Apr 23 '13 at 0:36
@kotekzot like I said, no known legitimate way :P – l I Apr 23 '13 at 2:08
