4, 5, 20, and 27 for Adele please! (I know she's not a canon Inquisitor but she's my baby)
thanks for the ask!! (my pyromaniac baby)
4. How did they feel about being called “The Herald of Andraste”?
Adele felt like laughing when they first called her that, because she felt she definitely wasn’t the Herald. She began to get frustrated rather than vaguely amused when the comparisons to Andraste began, especially when they wouldn’t listen when she said she wasn’t the Herald, not even consider it for a moment. As she began to ponder her loss of faith later on, she came to accept that they needed a beacon of hope - whether she wanted to be it or not was of no concern to them.
5. What are their religious beliefs, if they have any?
Being the youngest of three, Adele was to work for the Chantry by family tradition; specifically, as a Chantry sister. Before her magic manifested, Adele was as pious as her parents, praying in the chapel on their estate in the morning and then in the evening. However, as soon as she was turned away in shame and sent to the Circle, Adele began to question her faith. Over time, she lost her belief completely - her entrapment seemed so hopeless and she couldn’t believe that the Maker cared for His children anymore.
20. What was their court approval like at the Winter Palace? Did they have any fun at all?
The Winter Palace was a certifiable nightmare in Adele’s terms - she was surrounded by pretentious nobles who thought she couldn’t hear when they’d whisper about maleficarum. She did not like it, but Adele put on a performance for the court, acting in accordance to Orlesian etiquette and they quickly changed their minds about her. After the ball is when she had fun…
27. As a whole, how do they feel about Tevinter and the Imperium?
Adele is sceptical of Dorian’s claims about his homeland at first, but can’t shake her curiosity about the nation, so far removed from what she knows as it is. She doesn’t trust many things that come out of the Imperium, mind, with Dorian being an exception - anything else, she’ll research about to great pains to ensure that it isn’t dangerous. Despite these feelings, Adele would like to visit one day, for exploration’s sake.
