I could write long essays about the way Isabela and Leliana clearly prefer women. But I'll just say this - for a game that's so clearly catered to a male PC, the fact that these two have a preference for women made me very happy. Especially since they're my faves!

Same here anon! It’s actually a pretty cool thing that Bioware did as there really are bisexual women who have similar preferences, so it’s nice to see it portrayed in the way that it was, because you don’t usually see that.

 I know it’s not perfect, but I’m grateful for the characters. (isabela and Leliana are my faves too!)

  • Me re-starting a video game :Okay I'm going to try a new class, a new character design, choose other plot points, and romance a different character!
  • Me :*chooses same class*
  • Me :*creates mirror-image character*
  • Me :*plays quests with the exact same outcome*
  • Me :*romances same companion*
  • Me :*plays game exactly the same way*
  • Me :wait what-- okay.

Aveline Vallen is a soldier, a master of sword and shield, and a tireless guardian… to a point. The daughter of an exiled chevalier, Aveline is not the knight her father wished her to be. Although fully trained in chivalrous combat, she was raised in the shadow of a lost life and will not lose another for the sake of honor. Protecting her adopted home of Kirkwall becomes a chosen duty, not a privileged calling. The people she stands for will not be wasted on lost causes or protecting the foolish from themselves. Pride can be bandaged like any other wound—when threats are dead and everyone is safely home.
