Bestiary - Spirit of Valor

“They say a spirit dwells in a small lake south of the highway. The girls of the village bring it daises and ask for love. But rarely does it listen… For ‘tis a spirit of valor, not love, and it favors blood lotus flowers.”

These mages speak of being challenged to combat. If deemed worthy, a valor spirit would support a mage in their final test of the Harrowing, battle with a demon.

Confession: Sometimes I find it hard not to have a heavy attack of wild-fangirling when Flemeth’s on screen. I mean… as a Trekkie. The fact that DA II Flemeth reminded me of Kate Mulgrew’s face too made it even worse. I just love when actors from famous TV shows or movies do voice acting, it’s one of the reasons I never play the dubbed game (I live in Italy, we’ve got the worst dubbings on VGs) and always the original.
