I feel like there hasn’t been enough love for our Origin companions lately, so I am dedicating this Wednesday to Leliana. She was always my “best friend” in my Warden canon playthroughs.
STOP READING NOW IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED DA2 I really hope that we will not be fighting her in DA3. She is badass and I wouldn’t want to mess with her. She seems different from Origins, which makes sense considering how many years are between the events. SPOILERS FINISHED HERE.
Enjoy Leliana Wednesday!
Leliana Quotes of the Day:
“I bought a confection of spun sugar here once. It got stuck in my hair. Made it hard to comb out but it was very tasty for a few days.”
“Ooh! A windmill. I once took a ride on the sails of a windmill. Didn’t turn out well.”
“Oh, you poor dear! That must have been… really, really booring.”
Happy Leliana Wednesday!
Day 6: Your Warden’s story
So this is tough because I have a few Wardens. I have played almost 300 hours of Origins… But I have like 2 main stories that I consider “cannon” for my world. Obviously, if you haven’t played Origins don’t read this post, it’s full of Spoilers. I don’t have the events of Awakening in here - I might do a post on that later :)
Aiyanna: Female Elf Mage
I’m not going to go into all of the choices I made in Origins because this post would be like 10 pages long haha, but Aiyanna’s personality was nice and only snarky some of the times. She brought along Alistair, Leliana, and Zevran for most of my quests. She only hooked up with Alistair, though she did flirt with Zevran for fun.
She was able to save Arl Eamon’s entire family and decided to show Jowan mercy. She obviously sided with the mages, even though she was fond of Cullen when she was in the Circle. She picked up Shale not long after this.
She sided with the Elves against the Werewolves, but ended up persuading Zathrian to take his own life to cure the werewolves.
She sided with Harrowmont against Bhelen and destroyed the Anvil of the Void.
At the Landsmeet, Aiyanna let Alistair kill Loghain and put Anora on the throne.
Aiyanna agreed to Morrigan’s offer, much to the chagrin of Alistair.
In the end, Aiyanna slays the archdemon and becomes the Hero of Ferelden. She and Alistair stay together rebuilding the wardens.
Armoura: Female Human Noble Rogue
Armoura’s story was pretty much the same as Aiyanna’s up until the Landsmeet. She is snarkier than Aiyanna, but not anymore aggressive. She flirted with both Alistair and Zevran until Alistair asked her to choose between them. She went with Alistair (of course) and at the Landsmeet put him on the throne and became his wife.
She also agreed to Morrigan’s offer.
In some of my other games I went with other people and chose different things, but I really like these two games the most.
