Dragon Age Warden/Hawke Meme: Day 31 & 32
15. B) Did your Hawke stay in or leave Kirkwall? Where do you think they are now? Who has remained with them?
Obviously, after the mess Selene and her companions made when confronting Meredith they were forced to leave Kirkwall, because they all were considered renegades after the Champion of Kirkwall standed for (even if she didn’t approve them, not one bit) Anders’ actions and the mages’ benefit. She was actually happy to do so, because she was starting to grow tired of the city, their inhabitants and their problems, even if she missed the city in some extent. But she had Merrill by her side, and also her sister, who quitted the Grey Warden order to be with them, just like in the old times. If Selene is to be found somewhere, the most obvious place would be Antiva, back into the criminal business to protect Merrill and Bethany from the templars. Everyone else had to part of her sides, although saying goodbye was difficult, specially to Varric, her best friend.
DLC Bonus Prompt: Tell us about your adventures in Legacy. (And that hellish battle with Corypheus…) Did it change your Hawke’s feelings about Malcolm?
There isn’t much to tell about what happened in the Legacy events, other than a powerful dislike for the Grey Warden order (Selene learned there what were the consequences of becoming a Warden, and regretted she condemned her own sister to that horrendous fate. Also, she understood better why Anders left the order and how he became what he is now) and the horrible feeling she had done something very, very wrong even after she defeated Corypheus. She went against Janeka’s desires to freed (and control) him, and she felt she did the right choice after learning what was Corypheus exactly, but after Larius left the prision and they did the same, she was at unease, and she can’t explain exactly why. Even so, she is thankful of being alive after fighting a magister of old with the Taint. And about her father, she didn’t think less of him after learning what he did. On the contrary, she came to admire him even more and understand better some things. She was surprised at first to know her father had to use blood magic to make the prison work, but at the end it was (like everything he did) for his family. Also, she understood better Merrill’s motivations for doing things, even if she didn’t approved of the method.
In my head canon, Legacy’s events started for Selene somewhere between the Deep Roads Expedition and the start of Act II’s events. So she could talk with her mother about Malcolm and discover some facts about them.
