i hate seeing people whine about ‘poor baby anders why would anyone hate him he did nothing wrong! he just wants peace for mages!!’ Because, boy! There are so many reasons to hate him. So I’m gonna list out all the reasons I hate this shitty ass character :) so sorry if it’s long
obviously, he blew up a chantry and killed a lot of innocent people. Let me repeat that because some reason people think that’s okay. Anders blew up a place of worship and killed innocent people.
Not only that but it made Meredith call for the right of annulment which gave templars the right to kill every mage in the circle. So not only did he kill innocent people in the chantry that he fucking blew up, innocent mages of the circle can also die.(depends on if you side with templars.)
The conversation he had with Aveline about her dead husband, which obviously crossed a line.
- Anders: So you married a templar, huh?
- Aveline: What of it?
- Anders: Are they all as dirty as they seem?
- Aveline: What?
- Anders: Did he ever ask you to play “the naughty mage and the helpless recruit?” Maybe the “secret desire demon and the upstanding knight?”
- Aveline: That’s disgusting!
- Anders: I hear it’s quite popular.
The way he acts towards Fenris and Merrill if Hawke is in a relationship with either of them is disgusting.
- Anders: I know it isn’t my place to criticize, but…
- Anders: Are you sure about Fenris?
- Anders: He seems less a man to me than a wild dog.
- Hawke: You just don’t know him.
- Anders: I know as much as I’m ever likely to.
- Fenris: That’s right, mage.
- Anders: He has let one bad experience color his whole world. Surely you want someone more openminded?
- Fenris: A mage and a hypocrite. What company you keep.
He compares him to a dog and says ‘ONE’ bad experience made him like this?? O FUCKING KAY ANDERS
(If Hawke romanced Merrill but also slept with Isabela)
- Anders: Hawke was a fool to let you move in. You’ll only betray him/her. That’s all your kind can do.
- Merrill: Why do you only do this to me? Are you jealous? You don’t get upset about Hawke and Isabela.
- Anders: You can’t really get jealous of someone for sleeping with Isabela. It’s just…understood.
- Anders: She’s like a side dish. She comes with the meal.
Literally he’s disgusting
- Anders: I know it isn’t my place to criticize, but… are you sure about Merrill? She acts sweet, but she’ll never choose you over her demon.
- Hawke: Merrill loves me.
(If Merrill is in the party)
- Merrill: What right do you have to question us? Is your Justice any different?
- Anders: Yes. Keep your illusions then. Maker knows I won’t be the one to change them.
How can I forget! He approves to giving Fenris back to Danarius! You get approval from him by sending a slave back to their master. That in itself is enough for me to fucking hate him. He fucking whines about mages needing freedom from the circles and templars but? fenris hates mages? Better send him back to a life of being a slave. :)
lol I’m definitely forgetting some things but I need to get ready for school so this’ll do.
And to anyone that tries to come and defend him, I DON’T CARE. I literally don’t want to hear what you have to say to try and defend him. I don’t.
