Questions on wardens, answer for your own!

(Note: The Landsmeet has not yet been called in my game, my last main quest left is A Paragon of Her Kind and I’ve been mucking around in the Deep Roads. So please don’t mention anything that might happen in the Landsmeet or after, it’s all I ask - trying to avoid spoilers if I can.)

- Introduce your Warden! Male/female, origin, class. Share a screencap too.

Dis Brosca is a casteless dwarf.  She never meant to set out to be a warrior Grey Warden, but, well, here we are.

- What are your Warden’s favorite weapons and armor?

She is constantly changing up what she decides is her favorite, though she typically sticks with heavy armors.  The Armor of Diligence and Varathorn’s Breastplate are two she finds comfortable yet protective, and she has to admit she enjoys the sheen of silverite or ironbark.  She enjoys flame-enchanted weaponry, especially Duncan’s sword paired with Dar’Misu, though lately she has been taking up an enchanted battleaxe.  She has dabbled with archery but prefers to leap into the fray for a good melee fight.

- Who is in your Warden’s ideal team?

Alistair is always at her side.  She often brings Leliana for her lock-picking and archery skills and Wynne for her healing abilities.  Zevran and Morrigan work well together, though she has to put up with a lot more teasing in the ranks when Morrigan and Alistair are together.

- Who is their love interest?

When she first met Alistair she told him he was a very strange human, and he wasn’t offended.  Perhaps that was when she started to notice the way he smiled, or how his muscles worked together in combat.  Perhaps it was simply that suddenly it was the two of them against the world.  She never expected to fall in love with a human man, especially not so quickly, but she did.  He brings her great comfort and she appreciates that he has never given the brand on her face a second look.  When he told her of his parentage, though she was upset at first that he had hid it, she understood; after all, if there was a way to hide her brand, she would have taken it.  She feels they understand each other quite well; and certainly she enjoys those evenings in camp in her tent.  Despite the Chantry’s sheltering Alistair has proved to be a quick learner.

I have a crying need to sit in a circle with other nerds talking about each other’s Wardens in a way that doesn’t spoil me for the possible endings because dammit I want to hear about mage elves and Dalish elves and city elves and human…

Intro time! ( No pic, this is from Xbox)

Feylandarah Mahariel, the female Dalish Hunter.
Once she was told to leave her clan, she never wore anything but her Dalish Armor, though, (as she saved the Dalish Clan for last) once she found the pieces to the Ancient Elvish Armor, she wore that. She favors the bow, and alternately uses The Sorrows of Arlathen, or Duncan’s Dagger and Dar’Misu when she is caught in close range.

At first, she fights with Alistair as her shield, Morrigan as her healer and supporter, and Zeveran. Though she takes Sten just as often as Alistair.

Alistair, the silly shem, confuses her greatly. She was to be wed to Tamlen, so at first she rejects any feelings, but after the confrontation with the shriek, she goes to Ali for comfort, as a friend. But she also begins to care greatly for Zeveran. 

She considers Zev to be her best friend, though she loves waking up early and meditating with Sten. Lelliana angers her greatly with her comments, as does Wynne.

Fey finds shem culture to be mind boggling, but the City Elves leave her both in tears, and raging in anger at the conditions they allow themselves to live in.

Fey did not want to leave her clan. She begged her keeper to allow her to die among the clan. But, she could not disobey the Keeper when she was told she had to go with Duncan. 

Her Fade nightmare would be Tamlen being alive, having children with him, and Zeveran being part of her clan. Or perhaps, having children with Zeveran. Living out her days as the Clan’s top hunter, and once she could no longer draw the bow, the Story Teller. She would never depart from that world.

She believes in the Creators, and prays to them after every hunt, and meditates on them every morn.

Shem cities make her uncomfortable, ( She makes Alister do all the talking to Shem), and she would never leave the forest if she had her choice.

Her biggest regret was not being able to save Tamlen. And, she recalls guiltily sometimes, how she treated Duncan.

To relax, she meditates, or, to do something useful, she sews and mends clothes. 

She daydreams about being back with her clan, but after Zathrian, she begins to doubt the clans. (She kills him, because he put the clan in danger.)

The clan was her family. It was everything to her. But, once she left, the rag tag group she gathered slowly starts becoming her clan. Eventually, she would do anything for them - because they are Kin.

Asha’bellanar still haunts her dreams, above anything she encountered.

Her favorite food is actually crystallized honey. She loves snacking on it.

She is skilled in the way of the Ranger. She normally has a wolf with her. She found a pup a few years before the disaster, and healed it. It became her hunting companion. While she can call other animals, she rarely calls on them.

Sorry for the super long post!

Fascinating!  The elves really have quite a different view on things, at least from a dwarf’s perspective :)  I’m curious as to how Fey treated Duncan - Dis found him to be funny and a warrior to be respected, and she was saddened when he was lost, though she did not grieve as deeply as Alistair.  It’s interesting to hear how important the clan is to the Dalish, and how mistrustful they are of the shemlen, especially those that view the Chantry positively.  Thanks for sharing, nerdy-fannon-au-stuff :)

Olivia, my eldest daughter, caught measles when she was seven years old. As the illness took its usual course I can remember reading to her often in bed and not feeling particularly alarmed about it. Then one morning, when she was well on the road to recovery, I was sitting on her bed showing her how to fashion little animals out of coloured pipe-cleaners, and when it came to her turn to make one herself, I noticed that her fingers and her mind were not working together and she couldn’t do anything.

“Are you feeling all right?” I asked her.

“I feel all sleepy, ” she said.

In an hour, she was unconscious. In twelve hours she was dead.

The measles had turned into a terrible thing called measles encephalitis and there was nothing the doctors could do to save her.

That was twenty-four years ago in 1962, but even now, if a child with measles happens to develop the same deadly reaction from measles as Olivia did, there would still be nothing the doctors could do to help her.

On the other hand, there is today something that parents can do to make sure that this sort of tragedy does not happen to a child of theirs. They can insist that their child is immunised against measles. I was unable to do that for Olivia in 1962 because in those days a reliable measles vaccine had not been discovered. Today a good and safe vaccine is available to every family and all you have to do is to ask your doctor to administer it.

It is not yet generally accepted that measles can be a dangerous illness.

Believe me, it is. In my opinion parents who now refuse to have their children immunised are putting the lives of those children at risk.

In America, where measles immunisation is compulsory, measles like smallpox, has been virtually wiped out.

Here in Britain, because so many parents refuse, either out of obstinacy or ignorance or fear, to allow their children to be immunised, we still have a hundred thousand cases of measles every year.

Out of those, more than 10,000 will suffer side effects of one kind or another.

At least 10,000 will develop ear or chest infections.

About 20 will die.

LET THAT SINK IN.

Every year around 20 children will die in Britain from measles.

So what about the risks that your children will run from being immunised?

They are almost non-existent. Listen to this. In a district of around 300,000 people, there will be only one child every 250 years who will develop serious side effects from measles immunisation! That is about a million to one chance. I should think there would be more chance of your child choking to death on a chocolate bar than of becoming seriously ill from a measles immunisation.

So what on earth are you worrying about?

It really is almost a crime to allow your child to go unimmunised.

Over 1,000 preventable deaths and 128,000 preventable illnesses since 2007 and counting

And this is only in recent history. I can’t imagine the numbers if we had data all the way back to 1986.

imagine your OTP just sleeping in the same bed.

no kissing, no sex, no words.

Just the sound of their relaxed breaths and just the slight touch of their hands, feeling so warm and safe sleeping next to the one they love..

Imagine that.

I know this feel and I wish so much it was easier to make it happen.

Tell me more! My dwarf brain is totally mystified by them. I mean the Dalish seemed reasonable enough when she went to the Brecilian Forest, but Dìs is still puzzled by the idea of living beneath the open sky amongst the trees one’s whole life. She’s all right with it for now - there’s work to be done, after all - but she felt uneasy at their dependence on wood instead of stone. Despite growing up casteless, a duster, she still feels better with solid rock beneath her boots instead of springy loam. She envies the way they all seemed to work together, though, with common goals and common understanding; a concept utterly foreign to her as a brand who earned the scorn of commoners and nobles both.
