Confession: As a WOC, I was excited to see a character like Vivienne. Especially if she was on the villainous side as I tend to find female villains the most interesting. I was greatly disappointed by how little the game allows you to learn about her. I see all over tumblr about how she’s really nice and struggled to achieve her power, but I’m always confused where in the game that was ever revealed? In 1 on 1 conversations, she was very anti-mage and so adamant about it that I find it hard to believe that she has anyone’s best interests in mind other than her own. I would be fine knowing so little about her and her true motives if she wasn’t a companion. If a character’s in my party, I expect to know much more about them than the game allowed me for Vivienne.
