When I made this post Monday night, I figured it would get 15 notes and not much else would come of it. Due to weather issues Tuesday, I was offline until late Tuesday evening, when I discovered the aforementioned post had alarmingly accrued 3500+ notes.
I have received some asks regarding whether the heights in the post are canon. They are not canon. They are strictly my headcanon. I failed to specify that fact in my original post, and I apologize for that omission.
That post is taken from the XNALara posing software, which lets you edit the scale of the models. I changed them accordingly to meet my personal headcanon. The only game-canon element of the original post is the height difference between Garrett Hawke, Isabela, and Varric, whose models’ scales I left unaltered. (For any numbers nerds, here are the scales I used in my headcanon post: Carver (1.131), Anders (1.068), Aveline (1.088), Sebastian (1.051), Marian (1.064), Garrett (1), Isabela (1), Fenris (.972), Bethany (.95), Merrill (.92), and Varric (1).)
The images in this post are the unscaled models in XNALara. As you can see, the human males (and Fenris, I think) are the same height, a bit taller than the human women, who are a bit taller than Merrill, who’s somewhat taller than Varric.
As far as I know, the only Bioware character with a specific mention of height is Shale–10’ in The Stolen Throne, although I don’t think that height translated into their model in Origins.
tl;dr This post is a personal headcanon. The post you’re viewing is game-canon. I apologize to you, the viewer, if you were confused or feel misled, and I apologize to Garrett Hawke, for cutting him in half. Twice.
