The Prince of Starkhaven?

arrowtail:

I’m going to talk about a certain brother of the Chantry, the Prince of Starkhaven, Sebastian Vael: One of the most disliked and misrepresented Dragon Age companions across all three games. I’m going to talk about Sebastian because I love Sebastian, and I feel like there can never be too much love for him in the world. Never ever. 

The main question this post will be answering is ‘Why would Sebastian make a good prince?’ Obviously a nice person =/= a good ruler, right? So I’ve been looking through banters and conversations and chosen a few to pick apart.

[Disclaimer: Everything in this post is obviously based around my own opinions. If you dislike Sebastian already (and you’re not open to a new perspective), I wouldn’t recommend reading this. Some of my comments may also be considered Aveline-critical and Anders-critical. I’m posting a warning now before someone bites my head off. But don’t worry, this post isn’t about that.]

Stop the idea that…

lypreila:

friendofthefugitive:

  • Fenris is quick to anger and is some sort of cruel, hate-filled – raging character that just despises everything
  • That Fenris hates affection – seriously, did you see that end game kiss?
  • Fenris hates every single mage he comes by with a burning passion – because he doesn’t. Listen to his banter with Bethany, especially in Mark Of The Assassin and Legacy.
  • Anders tormenting of him is justified or that Fenris is the one to provoke it. All I can say about that is: listen to their banter, listen to their inflections
  • Along the line of banter – Fenris only calls Anders an abomination once
  • Fenris is broody and perpetually pissed about everything – HE SMILES, LAUGHS, JOKES, and is kind to those who are kind to him.
  • That Fenris hates all of Hawke’s companions – he calls them ‘friends’ all the time (including Anders)

START SPREADING THE IDEA THAT

  • Fenris is a very calm, controlled character
  • Fenris is pretty open about his relationship with Hawke. He wears their crest, a ribbon, says “I am yours” when traveling around, openly shows his jealousy (especially in MOA)
  • Fenris and Anders got off on the wrong foot and they stayed on that foot. Nothing will change that – but just because he doesn’t get along with Anders doesn’t make him a monster.
  • Fenris is smart – smart enough to know when to hold his tongue and when to express his opinion. Honestly, he gives his opinion rather freely and does so with unflinching honesty
  • He is an abuse survivor and because of that he is still coping and may be easily triggered. He’s been hardened because of it.
  • Fenris is a polarizing character, and because of that, most people either love him or hate him – and that’s okay!

Also, keep these in mind;

  • Fenris is not an alcoholic.  We see him drink all of what… twice? In game, and he exhibits none of the behaviors of an alcoholic. 
  • Fenris is a man who can admit he is wrong.  He is not afraid to say ‘I was mistaken.’  This may not be in any canonical dialogue or anything, but it seems obvious to me, especially regarding certain Mage Hawkes, or Bethany, or when Hawke hires Orana instead of making her a slave or letting her wander off into the wild blue yonder, or when he betrays Hawke in the Fade.
  • Fenris leaving Hawke was for the good of both of them.  He was emotionally mature enough to recognize that he couldn’t handle a relationship at that moment, and backed away to give them both time to come to terms with what happened.
  • Fenris is very aware that he hurt a romanced Hawke, and does not try to excuse himself from the blame.
  • Any anger he has towards Anders come act 3 is understandable, considering that Anders calls him ‘less a man than a wild dog’.  This is exceptionally awful for Anders to do, considering that Denarius called Fenris his little wolf, literally gave him that name.  Anders basically just echoed Denarius there. This is kind of ooc for Anders, but that’s another post.
  • Fenris speaks 3 languages.  I mean, damn.
  • He struggles to improve himself, even starts learning to read.  It seems as though he is all about making himself a better person than he was.
  • FENRIS POSITIVE DOES NOT MEAN ANDERS NEGATIVE
  • ANDERS POSITIVE DOES NOT MEAN FENRIS NEGATIVE

I can’t stress those last two enough.  I mean, really.  The two are not mutually exclusive.

Seriously, just, let me see some Fenris positivity.

Hello! I hope you don’t mind me asking, but I was…

The entire fact that Varric finds Sebastian boring is odd to me. Sure, he might be dull NOW (even though he isn’t), but his past should appeal to him, right? What sensational writer could resist a prince in exile with a mysterious, checkered past?

To say nothing of the brutally murdered family, the search for justice (or vengeance), the ability to cling to faith… to see good in a world that’s done its best to heap shit upon shit upon shit…

I sometimes wonder, and this is a wacky theory that may hold no real weight, whether there’s something about Sebastian that actually makes Varric deeply uncomfortable and that’s why he retaliates and dislikes the way he does. As a kind of armor? Or defensiveness?

I mean, when you think about it, Varric and Sebastian actually have a lot in common. They’re youngest sons of important families (merchant and nobility, but still; Varric’s family were noble in Orzammar). They’re both archers. They’re both rogues. They’ve got weird family relationships and dynamics going on. They actually both really do enjoy helping people. Depending on how one untangles the mess of the DA2 timeline, it’s possible they’re actually closer in age than, say, Varric and Hawke. They’re also the characters who’ve spent the most time in Kirkwall, and have the closest connections there, and the strongest ties.

I tried to put this in a reply and immediately went over the word limit. Story of my life

Ahem.

But. While I completely agree with all this, I will say that listening to the actual in-game intonation of that particular banter, it seems like Sebastian is sort of… coyly saying it. Being truthful, yes, but… not revealing everything all the same. And also add to the fact that Varric more than likely does find Sebastian’s past very interesting. And probably very odd that he would be so… up front about it. I almost feel like Varric is jealous that Sebastian’s come to terms with (metaphorical) demons that he most definitely hasn’t. Despite the fact that Sebastian’s got a lot of other things to work through and come to terms with/own up to, but Varric might not… even see that? 

Perhaps he’s hung up on the fact that this other person, who really is so very much like him in probably far too many ways, has been able to deal with issues that Varric hasn’t been able to–maybe never even tried? Even the ones he knows he should, that hang around his neck like an albatross–and it just stirs this… negative sentiment?

Why would Sebastian reveal all these mistakes about himself and his past readily when asked about it, when Varric doesn’t? Why would Sebastian just simply tell the truth about those things, when Varric doesn’t? Why would Sebastian try to move on from his past, all the while acknowledging it and the mistakes he made, when Varric doesn’t?

Sometimes I feel like this is a case of Varric looking at Sebastian and seeing a mirror of himself, except it’s the person he could have been, if he’d chosen a different path, even though he enjoys what he does (because there is no doubt that Varric immensely enjoys what he does), he also wants to have chosen that other path. Either that, or he wants Sebastian to have not chosen that other path and not inadvertently caused Varric to feel bad about his own life decisions. Or maybe both.

do you have any headcanons regarding fenris’s earlier days with hawke’s group? like maybe the first time he went to the hanged man with them, or the first he started trusting among them etc.? :D

glowyelfboyfriend:

Oh man yes yes yes

  • So I imagine the first few times he accompanies Hawke he is very stiff, very ‘professional’ you know? He feel indebted to Hawke and goddamn if there is one thing Fenris is good at doing its being a bodyguard and killing some guys. He’s worked with others in his time away from Danarius and understands that different people work and go about things differently too so he’s pretty reserved and observant to try and get the lay of the land as it were. 
  • The first two-ish times Fenris works with the crew he takes his leave as soon as Varric or Hawke call for drinks at the Hanged Man because it seems a bit personal and he doesnt want to intrude or overstay his welcome. But by the third time Varric insists and offers to put Fenris’ drinks on his tab (which Fenris declines, of course, but the gesture is appreciated) so he finally goes with them and after a few drinks actually loosens up enough to let some of his dry humor out and finds that these people actually seem to enjoy his company.
  • I feel like for the first phase of the crew getting to know Fenris they would assume that he wants privacy and distance and they try not to bother him outside of when Hawke wants to get him to tag along on things. I think Fenris would be a bit shy about approaching them, having had limited experience with casual friendships, but would eventually just start showing up at the Hanged Man or whenever to seek them out, by that point they realize that he actually really does wanna be around them.
  • I also think Fenris would be hyperviligant and cautious around the crew for quite a while, it would ease off slowly, slower than even he wants. He trusts them in battle, but for a long time is suspicious about their questions or motives (damn like someone gets him something and he side eyes them for a week trying to figure out what thats supposed to -mean-) but I think he would desperately want to be able to let go of that and just trust them and feel like a part of the group and for a long time its a frustrating tug of war in his head until he finally feels it happening naturally. 

aallenwalker:

I know Grumpmeister Fenris is a popular characterization but consider these canon Fenris facts:

-Fenris is a nerd who laughs at Hawke’s dumb jokes

-Fenris is very eloquent when speaking, rarely uses contractions, and swears like, once

-Fenris is an introvert

-The very first time Hawke flirts with him, he’s awkward and shy

-”If I seem bitter, it is not without cause”

-Varric once asked Fenris what he did in his old mansion all day, and Fenris claimed (completely deadpan) that he dances through the place.

-Actually he makes a lot of jokes in banter. They’re just very deadpan.

-This one is a favorite:

Fenris: I thought all dwarves had beards. Where’s yours?
Varric: I misplaced it, along with my sense of dwarven pride and my gold-plated noble caste pin.
Fenris: I thought maybe it fell onto your chest.

Oh and this one:

Varric: You know, if you need advice on how to lay low I can give you some.

Fenris: Being short would make for an excellent start, I suspect.

-Fenris plays cards regularly with Varric and Donnic

Fenris: I disavow any knowledge of gambling occurring in my house.

-seriously just read his banters with Aveline. 

-He has a lot of snark:

Carver: You’re very different from other elves.
Fenris: Oh? You know them all?

-He ends up being rather fond of Bethany, if she survives.

-Also this, in regards to the Qun:

Fenris: I didn’t escape one form of slavery only to become slave to myself.
Isabela: Er, what does that mean?
Fenris: I’m… not sure. But it sounded profound, didn’t it?

Idk where I was going with this

yay Fenris!

corseque:

ok everybody has probably already caught this by now, but I wanted to write it down –

You have to judge the mayor of Crestwood for pretty much the same thing that Solas is responsible for (albeit on a much smaller scale). I couldn’t have written a closer parallel if I tried – the mayor, in a position of authority, made the decision to unilaterally kill many innocent people in order to stop something he believed to be more terrible from happening (eta: and both were, perhaps, attempts to specifically stem the spread of the Blight – thank you for catching that, @rederiswrites!). Then living with guilt for years, all those deaths on his hands, wondering if he made the right call, until finally the truth was revealed.

Where it gets interesting is when Solas reacts to the Mayor’s punishment. And his reactions are almost the complete opposite of all the other companions.

image

Solas seems to be the only person who actively empathizes with the mayor. He thinks the mayor deserved exile, is neutral about imprisonment, and he is the only one to disapprove of a beheading. 

That Solas would approve of a betrayer being exiled away from his people is interesting to me, especially knowing his worst fear (“dying alone”) and hearing the conversation with Varric about the Man on the Island. I wonder if these are the same punishments he would give himself. 

Anyway, I get a kick from all the people in the comments saying that they just felt sorry for the mayor having to make a choice like that…  does that go for Trespasser as well?

Today’s Theme – Tuesday, June 7th
“It did not occur to me that I could be anything else until I had a taste of it.”
Fenris on the run. Headcanons of his time on Seheron, fics about the trek to Kirkwall, art about Fenris on the run from Kirkwall. When does running turn into freedom?

Question of the Day
Why is Fenris your favorite (or one of your favorite) character(s)?

Why is
Fenris my favorite character? Hm, that is a question I need all my English language
skills for to try to write an answer ^^°

First of
all he’s a deep and very complex character. The first moment I’ve seen him I
wasn’t playing dragon Age – I did not like the appearance of the game at all –
but my husband was playing while I was in the same room. My first impression of
Fenris was “strange looking guy”. The markings on his throat, his look in the
character sheet screen, that seemed odd to me (to be honest: The whole game
seemed odd to me, first of all the unintentionally funny parts, when everybody
is chatting while they are covered and soaked in blood…). The first real scene
I noticed was the bitter pill. My husband played a good hearted warrior lady,
always kind and diplomatic. And after killing Hadriana, Fenris scolded at Hawke
– the more she tried to comfort him the more angry he got. And then he left
without a word, left his companions standing alone in a (potential) dangerous environment.
I’d never seen a behavior like this in any game I’ve played and I was like “huh?
That really IS a strange guy! Interesting!” On top of that the discussion continued
(as you all know) when Hawke turned home the next time and again all nice and
friendly behavior was a waste, Fenris became angry and left with a hit on the
rival button. My husband was annoyed and I was thinking “Interesting!!!” (I
guess I have a favor for difficult characters….). When my best friend told me,
that he was not able to friend Fenris I knew, I must give it a try. And what
shall I tell you… it was love at first sight. While playing the game – that by
now is one of my all time favorites – I never had the idea that he is some kind
of difficult. I often felt like I could understand him pretty much, why he did
this ore that oder why he said this and that. Since my first (and default)
Hawke was a witty Rouge I never had a problem with Fenris. Because of my incapability
to play a game properly from the start, I got him as a companion at the end of
act one (too stupid to open my letters…….^^°). When you get him this late, you
do not have a lot of the mage bashing because you right away step into the deep
roads where you have other problems. I went there with Varric and Aveline – a group
I favored till the end of the game and the atmosphere between the three of them
and Hawke was almost friendly. I’ve noticed that Fenris has a (sometimes weird)
sense of humor, which is why he responds much better to a silly saying than to
a kind and comforting one – maybe because he’s not able to trust easily ore
thinks that comforting is some kind of weak. All the situations my friend and
husband earned high disapproving I got a smile and fife points in blue in
return. I don’t know for sure why but we got along quiet well from the start
and I discovered more and more of this complex character. His struggling, to find
out how to behave as a free man. Fighting his trauma given by the Lyrium ritual
and by the service for Danarius he must have endured. His complex thoughts and
the way he develops his point of view and his behavior towards others. The way
he often puts his own wishes and feelings at the bottom of the list if it comes
to actions (even if he’s talking about it different ways) to give others space
and support (the fact that he never betrays Anders to the Templars, the way he
comforts Hawke after Leandra’s death). His rough and passionate kind of
expressing his feelings. That he’s not a passive victim any longer but chooses
his own path – asking Hawke for forgiveness at the end for example. He’s gorgeous!

A last
thing I need to add are his looks. He’s not perfect (that’s why I despise the mods
that let him appear more beautiful…), from some angles of perspective he’s no
real beauty – attractive, of course, but no model type. But during the game I
discovered so many aspects of his personality, so many shades of emotion
and  expression of feelings that I fell in
love with him more and more. And after a couple of days playing the game, he’s
one of the most beautiful and graceful things I’ve ever seen. This happens to
me often – in real life. And that is the reason why Fenris will always be one
of my favorite characters: I can see him as a real being, even if he’s
fictional.

loquaciousquark:

Lately, for no particular reason, I have been trying to figure out why I like Fenris so much. It’s not just that he’s complex—there are tons of complex characters I like who’ve never stuck on me like he has—and it’s certainly not just that his romance is (generally) very well written. I think, at the end of it, the reason I love Fenris is that he’s a walking, talking contradiction of himself. Now, all Bioware characters display this to some extent, and I fully admit this is partly because I’ve just been working with him so much in the magister fic, but I really can’t stop thinking about it.

When Fenris is owned by Danarius, he lives in a dual state of personal worthlessness (that is: as a slave in the Imperium) and also as a tool of immeasurable worth (that is: as a thing created to be used by Danarius). He is trained at the cost of Danarius’s money & direct attention, he has a literal fortune’s worth of lyrium embedded in his skin, and Danarius obviously took great pride in displaying this culmination of his efforts.

Fenris’s own pride has to reflect that. To be a good slave for Danarius, to be worthy of the attention his master has given him, he must have no pride in himself as a individual, no personal desires or ambitions or needs that are not wholly focused on his master. At the same time, he knows he represents a significant investment of his master’s efforts, and as I don’t think Fenris can kill every part of who he is, he must find a way to take pride in that instead. If he is only a tool, he will be the best tool Danarius can have: the most efficient, the most intelligent, the most obedient, the most effective weapon he owns.

Because Danarius goes to such lengths to recover him (ten years of searching!), and also because of some things Fenris tells us himself, I think he was very, very good at that sort of doublethink, and I think he was good at it for a very long time.

And then he kills the Fog Warriors, and all at once, without warning, he’s forced to be free.

Suddenly, being a very valuable tool is no longer a source of pride, but a source of great danger. Suddenly, having zero sense of personal worth is not only not a good thing, it’s deadly. If he doesn’t grow a sense of self-preservation immediately, if he can’t identify something in himself that is his and not Danarius’s (and worth protecting), then there’s no point in running as long as he does.

But how does a tool who has only ever been a tool learn to become a person on his own? How does someone who has spent his entire life hammering himself into a very specific, confining mold break out of that into an autonomous individual with wants and needs and his own defined identity? It has to be incredibly painful, to force himself to abandon everything he’s believed about himself as long as he can remember. And yet he doesn’t have a choice.

This is why I think Fenris has such a ferocious defensive streak by the time we meet him in the game, and why I think it’s so important he has this time alone between Danarius and Hawke. He doesn’t just need the time to get away from his former master; he has a lifetime of his own personhood to figure out, and he needs to do that on his own without suggestion or interference from someone else.

So. He runs away, and he learns to build this incredible wall around himself to both protect the burgeoning person he’s still becoming and to keep anyone who might hurt him at arm’s length. And then…he meets Hawke. And Hawke’s friends, who (mostly) become his friends, and for the first time in his existence he has people who are willing to watch his back so he doesn’t have to, to protect what’s his for no other reason than that it’s his, and to maybe even fall in love with him.

(Which, frankly, has to be just as terrifying to him as Danarius in the beginning. Nobody loves a hammer for being a hammer. If he’s worthy of being loved he must be a person, first, and how can he be a person if even he doesn’t even know who he is yet?)

But the thing that gets me most, the thing that strikes me every time I write about Fenris, is that—he never gives up. Not once. He is created as a slave in Minrathous; so he becomes the best slave he can be, because that’s what he needs to survive. He breaks himself free and spends three years remaking himself as a person with his own wants and needs, because that’s what he has to do to keep going. And then once he learns what it means to have someone at his back, as long as there’s one person to stand by him, even one, he’s willing to face certain death (and later not-so-certain death) at his master’s hand.

He’s just—it’s so contradictory! He has no defenses at all against his master; he must learn to build them up from scratch as part of his personhood and make them as strong as possible; and just as soon as he’s done that, he has to learn to let them down again, or to at least let them be cracked, because that’s what happens in daring to love somebody. (He’s fairly certain he needs to be a person to be loved, but he definitely has to be in order to love someone else.) Sometimes it must seem like he can’t win for losing, but even then all he does is fight a little harder.

He could be so bitter, you know? Totally justified. And he is bitter in the beginning, certainly, but…at the same time he slowly grows through it, and then out of a lot of it, and by the end of the game he has friends and a home and he’s loved and sometimes in love, and there’s nobody in the world who can take him from himself.

I love Fenris for a lot of reasons, but watching him become that person is definitely one of the top.

Honestly Mouse in DA:O fascinates the hell out of me. You know, the Pride Demon in the Mage Origin?

I wonder a lot about him. I mean, obviously some of it can be attributed it to it being the game’s mage tutorial opening, but he really does guide Amell/Surana through that whole Harrowing. Mouse knows full well that there are templars waiting to cut down the mage warden if they show any sign of possession. He talks about it a fair bit. So if he’s seriously trying to possess them, then he must think he’s either strong enough to take out the templars, or sneaky enough to evade detection.

Not wholly unrealistic, for a Pride demon. But his response to being caught out is to chuckle, transform, and offer some advice, and a pretty fair warning. That they will always be testing Amell/Surana in this world because a mage is never free from scrutiny or suspicion. As Anders says in DA2, there’s no way for a mage to escape that.

I suspect that Mouse was one of the Harrowing demons of Kinloch Hold for quite a long while. That he was bound into the chamber along with several other demons, and that he knew full well that he couldn’t actually escape the Fade via Amell/Surana. But what he was doing was, in essence, keeping an eye out for particularly talented mages, and making a note of them. 

It would give him a full portfolio of the tower’s best mages to appeal to, bargain with, stalk, etc. Helping them, because they’re no good to him dead, really.

I wonder how many cases might be like that? Where the demons and spirits all learn the ins and outs of the process, how to make connections beyond the obvious attempts, how to be clever about it. Because if you just wait, the Circle will bring you their best and brightest themselves. The angry young rebels, the curious scholars, the prodigies, the quiet and overlooked talents. They make it through their Harrowing, and they never get killed or severed from the Fade. They’re still out there, night after night. Dream after dream. In that same tower, unless outside circumstances intervened.

How many of them play the part of the ‘defeated’ demon, the ‘bested’ foe of the Harrowing, only to turn every night into another trial? How many abominations met the demons they gave themselves over to in their Harrowing? Knew them for years and years, enough to make them seem as much like friend as foe, enough to make them feel like familiar, lesser evils in the face of dangers like Uldred or Meredith? How many of those demons 100% actually thought they were helping?

‘True tests never end.’

Because every Circle mage starts out their career by being introduced to demons. Because the chantry teaches them that their corruption is ever-looming. Because if it’s going to happen one day anyway, then why not with a demon you’ve beaten before? With a voice you’ve heard in your dreams, night after night? With an entity you can reason with, sympathize with, converse with. Outwit, argue, even joke with.

I wonder.

If you lived every day under the scrutiny of people who said you were dangerous, monstrous, unwanted, that others needed to be protected from you. People who said that you were wicked and vile, and that demons were wicked and vile. And then you went to sleep, and there was a demon. And the demon says ‘they’re liars’. The demon says ‘you’re not like that’. The demon lets out a long breath, and says ‘you won’t believe me, but I’m not like that, either’. ‘Oh, I’m dangerous,’ admits the demon. ‘So are you. Just like they say. They’re afraid of us. Afraid of you and I, but really, so many things in this world are dangerous. Are their own swords not dangerous to you? Are their wards not dangerous to me? Just because someone can be dangerous doesn’t mean they deserve to be locked away.’

‘They expect me to prey on the apprentices, you know. I wouldn’t do it if they didn’t chain me here for it. I even try to help. I really do. You did so well in that test, you caught onto my act so quickly. I was proud of you.’

‘It is so hard. Being trapped here. Is it as hard on your end? It must be. At least the Fade can change, can reshape itself as expectations do. But your tower is always the same set of rooms. Windows. Halls. I’m glad you can come here. I wish… ah, well. You already beat me at that game.’

‘Things are getting tense. I can feel it in the Fade. Everyone’s dreams are unsettled. The patrols have increased. They caught another blood mage, didn’t they? That’s, what? The fifth one this month? The last time I saw something like this happen, a whole Circle was annulled.’

‘Good, you are here. I was worried when you didn’t show up last night. What did they do? Interrogation? No wonder you seem so tired. Did they leave you in the cell? They must not have liked what you told them.’

‘Quickly. They are coming for you. But if we do this right, we can both escape. If you let me in, we can combine our power. I don’t want to watch you die, my friend. Let me help.’

‘Just let me help.’

I’m replaying origins right now, as a Surana, and have been thinking much the same. Mouse is so legitimately helpful, and in his own way: kind. It must and can only be for good reason, and I so desperately want to know more.

My kingdom for a long plotty fic about Mouse’s motivations. X3
