  • Who is your favourite Dragon Age character?

    This is a multi-part question. Primarily just for fun, but the feedback could be useful to the HoDA team.

    1) Who your favourite character is from the Dragon Age universe? Can be from any game, book, comic, etc. in the franchise.

    2) What about them do you like? Design, character, abilities, voice actor, etc. Gush as much as you like. I bet we're going to have mentions of Morrigan purely based on Claudia Black's voice.

    3) How do you feel they have been portrayed within HoDA? If you're not happy, then tell us what you'd do to improve them.

    If you can't pick just one, then feel free to mention as many characters as you like.

    I look forward to reading your responses.

      Oh by far Loghain.

      His decision is so contentious and I love it.

      Who knows what the world of Thedas would look like if he hadn't made that decision.

        Morrigan.
        I love her personality, and all her development through the games.

        And she's a proud apostate, i can't remember another character that feels for me like what a true mage should be.

              always with Iona.

              My favourite dragon age character (like if I had to choose out of the whole series) is Aveline. By game however it's Morrigan for Origins, Aveline for DA 2, and Cole for Inquisition.

              Everything about Aveline is great in my opinion, voice, character, appearance, strength. The only thing I don't like is that she's not in more games.

              For HoDA, maybe take a look at guard Captain Aveline from tier 2, 3, and 4, her chin/neck sort of looks like a waddle because it's fat whereas for tier 1 it's fine. Also, under her fauld it looks like a solid piece, whereas other heroes with faulds or dresses have legs that go all the way up (instead of it looking like a solid block).

                Dorian. Love everything about him, and all his HoDA versions. I have the full collection, so I'm happy.

                  Dorian. He's the reason why I'm even here (and the only one whose four HoDA versions are all T4 and maxed and all T4 leg/mythic forted except for poor Plaidweave but we'll get there... eventually....)

                  I played DAO for a few months, gave up after my laptop crashed, and then two years later watched my brother play Inquisition. His Adaar met Dorian at the Redcliffe chantry and I thought, "I need to meet him, I need to know who that fabulous mustache is." Proceeded to play the entire trilogy over the winter after Inquisition came out just so I can meet the damn mage lmao. I've been in this hell hole ever since. No regrets!

                  I have one small complaint about the many versions of Dorian on HoDA - why didn't CG stick with the original Dorian's model for PD, NecroD, and MD? The first version looks most like the one in Inquisition and the others... look like mustache-twirling whitewashed villains. It would also be cool if NecroD got a stats boost and doesn't just buff spirits and demons. He was the first version of Dorian I got so I'm very fond of him and his awesome attack animation. Can't go wrong with a giant ghostly purple skull poofing on the screen while he lays waste to the other guys.

                    And I'm envious. =) Sadly I have none of them, although I'm chasing after Magister Dorian since he was released. As far as I know none of the other versions is in one of the packs.
                    Dorian is my favorite character too, although it is hard to decide between Zevran, Fenris, Anders and sarcastic/m/Hawke (companion/characterwise DA2 was my favorite game).
                    I find it funny that Morrigan was named as an example with her voice actor, because one of the things I don't like about her is how she speaks. It annoys me deeply. But I'm one of the few player who can't stand Morrigan at all.

                    1-2) Overall it is Dorian. I like his wit, his sarcasm (I LOVE characters who are sarcastic), his specialisation, his voice (I bought all of his audiobooks ...), that he is hot isn't a bad thing either and I like that he is the boyfriend of my Inquisitor since my first playthrough. In short: everything. Although I like most of the companions in DA:I he was quite outstanding, although the game made sure, that I finally like Leliana (who I find plain crazy until then) and Cullen (whom I wanted to kill the two previous games).

                    3) Although I like the Dorian-versions (although plainsweed Dorian ... Would he really wear such a thing?), I'm really not happy with T4-progression of many heros. Many characters have a helmet or a hood or something like that and I find that terrible. The option to remove the helmet optically ingame was not a coincidence - most player didn't like it. But that is the only thing what bothers me from the design.

                      apart from morrigan id say that my other favorites are actually sten and dagna.
                      sten to me is so incredibly well written as he manages to pull of that seemingly impossible combination of being both extremely intelligent and utterly set in his ways. like when youre talking to him about the whole qun thing and youre trying to point out the flaws that come with it being so totalitarian in pretty much every way you could imagine, its clear that he can totally understand your reasoning and where youre coming from, and then just dismiss it anyway, because he has chosen to do so lol. very rarely do you actually meet these kinds of people in real life as well, and i find them equal parts fascinating and frustrating. just like big ole sten, he plays the role perfectly. chapeau to the writers.
                      kinda sad about how underappreciated he seems to have been by players and that subsequently he pretty much ceased to exist after DAO.

                      and dagna is just flat-out amazing. when you try to put yourself into her shoes, that unshakable positivity she displays in the face of all the adversity she mustve faced is just something else. as a dwarf, wanting to break out of the whole caste tradition thing (which is pretty massive in itself), but to do it in favor of studying and understanding everything there is to know about magic, every other dwarf in orzammar (and likely the surface too) would clearly think you a froot loop.
                      to just go out there cheerfully pursuing this passion of yours because screw all you doubters, i know as i dwarf i can never do magic myself and im never even really gonna be able to grasp it like someone who can, but im still gonna become and expert on this simply because it fascinates me. as a scientist i give mad props to that attitude. everyones laughing at her for even considering something as outlandish as that and she just goes to prove everyone wrong. and never even seems to get bitter about any of it, more like "yeah i can see why youd think me weird for doing this, thats ok" and simply be cheerful old dagna. thats the spirit.
                      love that you can get her as the arcanist for skyhold. many people attribute those character traits to scout harding instead, mainly cause you interact with her alot more in DAI, and its true for her as well. but much more so for dagna IMO. hope she gets to study sandal at some point in the story ;D

                        Tharayn the original 3* Dorian (who is now really good since the Tevinter update) is available in the Bloodstone Pack. He and Magister Dorian in the GCP are the only Dorians currently available, though.

                          Ah okay, thank you for the information! Then I'm curious which one I will get first (probably no one, I have no luck with 3* drop, but you can dream).

                              Well, this is going to be a tough one. Like I have my all time favourites like Morrigan, Varric and *The Iron Bull who I think are just great characters. But from the books too such as Maric from the first two novels and Felassan from The Masked Empire and then we have Isseya from Last flight. These characters tend to believe and are also fighting for a purpose and reason to be there. Isseyas' determination to save the Griffons from the taint ended up backflipping on her but yet she remained resolute, and the connection with her Griffon Revas. Felassan I just found to be a great whimsical sort of Character who tested Briala many times and kept faith that she would be the one to lead the elves to Freedom. Then we have Maric who was really all over the place with who he was and never really accepted the responsibility that was on him in the first novel but really grew and developed as a character later on. Varric, Morrigan and The Iron Bull explain themselves really . But there are a few other smaller Characters too who just add so much. Duncan for example practically changed his whole life around after accepting the responsibility of Warden Commander in Fereldan, considering how he was in The Calling.

                              It would take a lot of words and time to go into greater detail, I guess it really shows how great a world Thedas is with so many influential Characters that I haven't even listed here. (Looking at you Solas...)

                              (Oops P.S) We cannot forget Bodahn and Sandal, that is for sure!

                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.
