I really appreciated Aveline’s story about her father in DA2 after
Hawke lost their family. I’ve noticed other protagonists usually push
through grief and mourning super quick in order move the story along and
to maintain their image of the “strong leader”. Aveline was one of the
few characters I’ve met in games like this that actually told the
protag, “Hey, this grief is yours. You decide what mourning should be to
you. It’s not a weakness to cry.” That means something important.
