So if your warden is alive and didn’t romance Alistair and you meet him in DA:I and ask about the Hero of Ferelden, he says, basically, that they walk a ‘dark path’ and he’s not certain of what they’re capable of.
And I just keep thinking what it would be like if Oghren had been there for that. Because Oghren became a Grey Warden, too, right, and I can’t imagine him lining up for Clarel’s ‘plan’, and I just…
“Oh, a dark path. Yup. Not like the usual dark path all the rest of us’re on, no sodding way. Still got stars in yer eyes when ya look at Grey Wardens, boy? Even with Clarel linin’ us up fer the slaughter? WAKE UP! Any path that ends in darkspawn munchin’ on yer entrails is a dark one. Warden Commander saved yer sorry arse. And what the hell came of it? Morrigan’s got some cute kid who says creepy shit sometimes. Oh boo fuckin’ hoo. ‘I didn’t get to die pointlessly in that clusterfuck mess of a battle! Waa! I wanted to have one o’ them fancy marble graves!’ You call the sodding Hero of Ferelden’s character into question one more time and I’m takin’ you down at the knees.”
In fact, I’m just going to imagine Oghren being there for that whole thing.
“Again?? DWARVES DO NOT BELONG IN THE FADE! Why do I keep endin’ up here?!”
“I’m too sober for this.”
“Aww, a fear demon. Ain’t it cute. Reminds me of my ex-wife.”
“Did that thing just mention my kid!? Alright, that’s it. I’m carvin’ our way out of here through its innards!”
“No, the nug-humper’s right. A Grey Warden should stay and fix things. But they’re gonna need someone to pull their heads out of their arses when this is all over, and I ain’t got the delicate, lotion-y soft touch fer that. Tell Felsi… aw, shit. Nevermind. She knows anyway.”
gdi Oghren why do you have to be so high maintenance?
I never understood why Oghren reverted to neutral towards you when you started Awakenings, even if you got 100 approval with him in Origins, so here’s my attempt to explain it. (screw you Oghren you only love me for my gifts ;m;)
