No matter how hard I try, there are two things I can NEVER do in DA:
killing the mages in the circle in origins and killing the mages in DA2
at the end. No matter what kind of playthrough I’m doing, whether it be a
die hard mage hating templar or a circle loyal mage, I just can’t
justify killing innocent mages. I know it’s just a game and has no real
consequences and it messes up my playthroughs, I just can’t do it
Erza (fairy tail), Kagura (gintama), Morgiana (magi), Mikasa (aot), Lady Bishamon (noragami), Sakura (naruto) and Rukia (bleach) are the strongest and best written female characters of all anime. Also gorgeous and inspirational heroines. I look up to them greatly.
The only reason why I can’t support the Circle of Magi is because I
simply don’t understand, why mages, even at a young age, are being
completely cut off from contact with the outside world.
My idea for the Circles would be to turn them into academies, like a
Thedas version of Hogwarts, teach mages how to use their skills for
good, (including explaining the dangers of blood magic) allow them
contact with their families and friends, let them visit home from time
to time. I can imagine it would reduce a lot of frustration and thus the
danger of possession
I think templars do exist for a good reason, even phylacteries. However
they should be working hand in hand with the mages instead of
intimidating them. Communication is key. And I think it’s been proven
often enough that negative emotions are not helpful when dealing with
magic and demons.
All in all, if cthe circle was more open to the world and to their mages, I’m not sure apostates would even exist.
“Morgiana being Alibaba’s inspiration to fight against Sinbad made me really happy inside. She’s very dear to him so of course he’d want to fight because of her. But when she fought back and resisted, I was even happier. She loves him so much.”
One reason why I love Juhaku is because it defied my and fandom’s expectations. Like many in fandom, I thought they would just wind up using each other until Hakuryuu defected back to Alibaba’s side. Instead they ended up caring about each deeply and I think that’s really beautiful and touching.
