Ok so i have a retty good understanding on your feelings about Solas, but what about my man Anders?
Good feelings. He steps outside his bounds on more than one occasion for sure, but he’s a decent person and at least took accountability for the chantry explosion and only considered such an extreme measure after being pushed into a corner and attempting legal, peaceful avenues for 6+ years? He had the awareness to understand the weight of that decision and was willing to face whatever consequences came.
Meanwhile certain mages are directly accountable for a temple explosion, killing hundreds at a pivitol peace summit and plunging all of southern Thedas in a wide-scale war, without a simple apology or batting of an eye because the world aint tailored to their liking anymore. Some mages just run away from the consequences of their actions, right into their magic mirror, playing god with people’s lives while complaining about being called a god because ‘uwu im not like those other evanuris vhenan’.
So Anders, whose resume includes healing the poor for free and loving cats probably more than he loves himself, is doing ok in comparison.
