I think about how Zevran automatically puts on the Dalish Gloves and Antivan Boots no matter what other equipment he has on a lot…it fucks me up man.
Like, lets say that instead of the Warden buying his armor, he spends some of his own gold on a nice pair of leather gloves. They aren’t Antivan, but they’re of fine make, and the best he’s going to get in awhile.
But then the Warden hands him these random, beat up Dalish gloves because they remembered him talking about his mother.
They remembered this one conversation enough to keep these ratty things and hand them to him, because they cared enough about him to remember.
He’s never torn anything off his body so quickly as he did those nice, expensive gloves he bought, and never thinks about wearing them again.
