One of the creepiest characters in DAO and DA2 is probably Sandal. That little dwarf boy has taken out two whole hordes of darkspawn without getting even the slightest scratch on him while also being one of the best enchanters in both games.
And all he literally says is ‘hello’ 'enchantment’ and 'not enchantment’ with the same god damn expression on his face 99% of the timeeeee

Sandal: One day the magic will come back. All of it. Everyone will be just like they were. The shadows will part, and the skies will open wide. When he rises, everyone will see.

better watch out, Solas, Sandal was onto you even before you woke up

Um… guys.

What is Sandal’s diary doing in the Crossroads?

It doesn’t look like it’s just an object that’s been pulled-through or recreated by the Fade. It’s in a little campsite with runes and tools for crafting set up.

And if, and it’s a big if, he started that diary when he went into the Crossroads… then what the hell has he been doing there for the past nine months?

Know what would be cool to see more of? Bodahn (and Sandal) helping Hawke cope in the aftermath of All that Remains.

Yes, the crew are there. Probably a lot of the time (headcanon that Fen slept at the Hawke estate for the first couple of weeks to make sure mage child didn’t go Ketojan on himself). But what about after? A wound like that doesn’t close in a matter of weeks, or months or even years and Hawke was hurting already.

Even if Hawke is with Merrill or Andy, they’re kind of preoccupied with their own thing. Hawke puts on a brave face for the world, including the crew, but at some point it’s going to crack and it won’t be a one-time event. Dwarf dad and son are the ppl most likely to be around when it happens, so here’s what I want to see: 

Bohahn, all sternly polite as he orders the Champion of Kirkwall to eat, to put down the whisky, to get dressed and come along to the market, to go ahead and cry it out, because ‘we’re all family here.’ And Sandal, bringing Hawke dozens of runes with pictures of dogs that don’t do anything, except make Hawke smile; maybe sitting quietly as Hawke peers into the fire, occasionally muttering ‘Enchantment,’ just to break the silence…
