Hmm, while I am very much for a dwarf love interest, I guess I haven’t given a whole lot of thought as to what my ideal would be.
At this point I’d take anything, really.
The Silent Sisters are an interesting group, though not my first choice. The whole… tongue removing is disturbing to me.
However, I would prefer one that keeps their traditions and culture. One who could proudly give us further insight on how dwarves live. Of course, it could vary if they came from underground, perhaps a recent exile, or a surfacer trying to retain that culture… maybe even a Kalnas?
Basically, I’d want one as far away from Varric as possible. I like Varric, don’t get me wrong, but he distanced himself from other dwarves. I would like a love interest who enthusiastically told us about their history and the Stone.
We don’t need every companion to be a misfit of some sort.
Since all dwarven companions thus far have, to some degree, been from Orzammar, and since Inquisitor Cadash is from the Free Marches (not that we learned THAT much…) so Kal-Sharok could be very different and interesting.
And yes, I miss Sigrun every day. She is too good for this series.
