The writers of Dragon Age have taken foreshadowing to another realm: A dreary abyss called the Fade that can give both fanciful dreams and genuine visions. As we hear recounted tales it us up to us to decipher the truth.
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
The first time I played DA2 I didn’t know I could import a save. When I
played it again I imported my Origins save where my Warden became queen.
I ran into Bodahn and Sandal and Bodahn was gloating about how I had
become queen. It was really cute
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…
