“One of the most famous Child monarchs in Thedas’ history was Evelyn Trevelyan, who became Inquistor at the age of eleven.” - Excerpt from the histories of Thedas Vol: 4
Okay so I really love the idea of a Serious Kid!Inquisitor Fic?
Maybe she’d actually somehow become the inquisitor and go down in history for being a child monarch, and she’d have to grow up too fast.
Like maybe she is rogue class because she’s good with a sling shot and her father taught her how to hunt squirrels with a bow, and she was at the conclave because her father was her only family and he had to be there for some reason.
Solas is über protective of her and basically considers her his ward because it was his orb that dragged her into this. And eventually he comes to realize he really cares for as his own.
Varric teaches her how to use a bow in battle because It’s different then fighting squirrels, and the alchemist creates ammo for her sling that an eleven year old should probably not be handling.
The advisors constantly tell her she can’t climb trees anymore because she’s the herald, and that beating that boy up in the village for pulling her hair makes the inquisition look bad (So she pulls a face at him instead). Then the one time she’s allowed to play with the other children in Haven they all avoid her because their parents said “The exalted Herald must be above such things”.
And Don’t get me started on how much more protective Bull would be when he realizes the Herald is a child. Also how much it would freak him out because SEHERON.
Ugh , I have so many more head canons and drawings where this came from sorry.
