Hi, I was wonderig if there was any way you could help me find out the ages of all the dragon age characters? Or if not ALL of them, at least Hawke and his companions in Dragon age 2? I can't seem to find info on it anywhere!

Ah, this is a bit of a tough one because a fair few characters don’t have solid, canon dates of birth. I’ll share the ones I have definite sources on though. Links to sources are are on the ages or dates of birth, I’ll be providing the ages the characters are at the beginning of the events in the game or media they’re listed under. Some ages are approximate or lower estimates based off in-game dialogue and/or dev comments. I won’t be using the DA:O toolset ages as they were written before the characters were further developed and Alistair certainly isn’t 32 in that game.

If exact ages are unknown, and appropriate information is available, I’ll add things that might help you at least guess the ages (not everyone has information that lends itself to this, however). I’d like to give a big thanks to Valerie1972 for her WoT2 liveblog posts, they helped out a lot!

i s2g this is the worst haircut I’ve ever gotten 2 hours it takes me to look like Joan Jett & the Beatles had a scene baby. I look like Elliot Reid from scrubs season 3… & people are like “It’s not bad !!” why u lying directly to my face ?? 

Oh god I can’t stop doodling them!
Ok so here’s the thing I thought about while drawing:
Imagine an AU where everything is going to work out just fine, Max graduates from Blackwell, Chloe stays out of trouble, gets her life together and they both leave Arcadia Bay to live in a cute apartment together.
As close friends or lovers, which is up for us to decide. And they just wake up on a lazy Sunday morning while the sun is shining through their bedroom window and everything’s just how it should have been from the start.
