Dex is a Computer Engineering major, and takes programming because some of the courses are mandatory, and he had briefly considered trying to double major, but decided he didn’t have the money or the time. He does like programming, but he just isn’t good with stuff on a screen or on paper. What he’s really good at though is building computers. He loves working with his hands, and it’s the best way for him to earn money in his spare time. It’s a good chunk of money too, as he builds up a name for himself online. People will often pay nearly twice the price of parts (under 500 if you’re smart about it, as much as 5,000 if you’re crazy) for someone to prebuild a custom pc for them. However, he doesn’t have a really nice computer for himself, just a school issued laptop since he has a scholarship. He sends all the money he possibly can back home to his parents, a little extra help towards rent, things that need replacing, toys every now and then for his siblings. He saves the rest to help his siblings pay for college once they need it, and doesn’t tell anyone quite how much he’s been saving.
I like that you like Loghain. But I've always had this question for Wardens who spare Loghain: do you think a Warden who spares Loghain can ever salvage their friendship with Alistair over time (even if it's a long time)?
