I LOVE LOVE LOVE Anora. I think she is fantastic despite being a bit manipulative but figure she has to be that way because of the politics & bureaucracy involved with ruling the country. The majority of my playthroughs leave her as ruler. I don’t understand the hate she gets. As a woman and gamer, I want strong female characters in my games.
they changed the character portraits oh my god look at sera’s
Ten years after the events of Awakening, Velanna sees a ghost.
Go Now To The Stone
It happens in the Deep Roads during a routine patrol.
Velanna’s fingers are painfully tight on Sigrun’s shoulder. She’s staring at the mouth of an unexplored tunnel—one of those that the Wardens have not charted yet. Clearing the Deep Roads is terribly slow work. Slow, and draining. They take it in shifts, but the week on feels three times longer than the two weeks off.
"I saw her," Velanna whispers. "I saw Seranni."
Velanna hasn’t spoken her sister’s name in years. Sigrun never assumed that Velanna had given her up, though, just that this grief—her grief—was too old and deep to speak of.
"Are you sure?" Sigrun asks. She hefts her torch and peers into the tunnel, but she sees nothing.
"She was just there a moment," Velanna says. Her voice trembles. "But it was her. It was her. I have to go after her.”
Her hand lifts from Sigrun’s shoulder, but Sigrun is quick enough to catch it, slim wrist tight in her calloused fingers. “Velanna,” she says, trying to be gentle. “If it was Seranni, why wouldn’t she have spoken to you?”
"Maybe she didn’t see me." Her eyes are wild. "Maybe she heard us and just thought—a group of Grey Wardens, she’d better hide." She tugs, trying to break Sigrun’s hold. "Let me go! If I wait too long, I’ll lose her!"
"What’s going on back there?" Nathaniel calls.
Velanna will not be shaken. Sigrun knows this about her friend—that Velanna is stubborn, and fierce, and relentless. And Sigrun doesn’t have enough time to persuade her. They are, it seems, out of time.
"I’m going with you," she says.
Leliana, as we see her throughout the years.

Prayer circle for Wynne, who died and most DA fans don’t even know
Prayer circle for Zevran, who won’t be appearing in Inquisition most likely because they don’t want to overwork the voice actor
Prayer circle for Sigrun and Velanna, who the DA writers have probably forgotten about
Prayer circle for Orsino, who could have been a hero but was turned into a bad guy and killed before we even got to know him
Prayer circle for every quirky side mission character we met briefly but wish we could see more of
Prayer circle for Shale, Sebastian and Tallis for all being DLC companions and therefore likely to receive smaller parts in Inquisition, if at all.

Leliana returning to Redcliffe years after her time with her Warden love, and channeling the memories of their last night together before the battle of Denerim, to get through the pain of being tortured. ʘ‿ʘ
The fight she had in her was finally starting to come to an end. All hope seemed lost as Leliana prepared herself to die when suddenly a familiar Antivan accent called out to her—
