person: aveline

CONFESSION:  

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.
