Every mage must go through this trial by fire. As we succeeded, so shall you.
'tis true I deceived you. I did not think the battle with the archdemon would come so soon. and so I came to you. I needed you, yes, but I also did not wish to see you die. and here you stand, alive. so do not speak to me of betrayal.morrigan, requested by anon.
my mind is dusty archives with paper thoughts
that my wildfire heart has a tendency to burn.
I have so, so, so much sympathy for City Elves.
Like, no one gives two shits about any of them. Humans can get away with murder, rape and theft towards them. Some of the Dalish even call them ‘Flat Ears’ and look down on them.
No one seems to understand why the City Elves don’t fight back against their oppressors. Every other Origin gets a weapon when they start, or has some way of fighting, but Tabris has nothing. Cousland, Mahariel, Aeducan, Brosca all get physical weapons when they start. Amell and Surana have magic to protect them. Tabris has the clothes on their back, and is supplied weapons by Duncan. City Elves don’t have anything. No way to fight back, no weapons, no armour, nothing.
They’re stuck in poverty, constantly being crushed by Shems, but there are those who stick together and look out for their community, no matter what.
I love City Elves so much, and I’m constantly disappointed we haven’t seen any uprisings yet in the games. Okay, fine, Mages vs Templars, Qunari vs The Chantry, that’s all great, but we’ve seen it before. Let’s have a plot that focuses on the City Elves.
The Inquisition’s power is not absolute: it must earn its place among the forces in conflict. Sister Leliana understands this well, and has called on an old friend, Lady Josephine Montilyet, to be the Inquisition’s ambassador in the halls of the influential. The eldest daughter of a noble Antivan family, Josephine is a rising star among diplomats, skilled at forging alliances with tact, grace, and carefully cultivated favors. She is a consummate planner who understands that resurrecting the Inquisition will require support and goodwill from Thedas’s movers and shakers. Fortunately, the ambassador enjoys a challenge, and she sincerely believes that the Inquisition is the best way to halt the chaos sweeping Thedas. (x)
