Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful
without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?
DA2 whiting up?

DA2 Hawke

I'm avoiding as much as possible about DA2, as I prefer going into games knowing as little as possible.  I like to be surprised, but I am still mega curious.  So when someone mentioned something about more characters announced, I finally peeked at the DA2 official site this morning (not too many spoilers on there compared to forums etc.)

And I noticed something about Isabela...  Now, it's not like I particularly like or dislike this character as I don't know her well (she had - what?  four lines in the last game?), but one thing I did like about her in DA2 was that she had a lovely Rivaini skin tone - like DA:O's handsomest (imo) man, Duncan.

It's not often you see non-white people in games anyway, (I'm excluding badass huge black soldier trope from that, hopefully you understand why) never mind D&D type RPGs, so it was good to see her.

Anyway - one thing I noticed on the official site's page for Isabela was a desktop picture of her.  Except - there's something wrong with it,,,

I try not to be too grumpy about this sort of thing, I really do, as I know it's the chip on my shoulder... but seriously - what the fuck Bioware, what the fuckity fuck?

Since we're on the topic of colored characters and DAII cast, let me just say that the character Fenris looks just so adorable, and interesting. ♥

Ah if only I was good at stitching! I'd go out of my way and buy a bunch of fabric for any future geek conventions. XD

He looks so hot. I'm hoping he's a love interest, but I've not been keeping up with it, so I don't know for sure. I'm looking forward to DA2 for sure.

You need to find a good friend who can sew, you'd be so badass as Isabela. Though that armpiece bit looks complicated (and yet so pretty).

He does! I'm hoping a sweet voice will match up to that, but knowing BioWare, they've probably picked someone good for him. I do love M!Hawke's voice <3

It does look complicated, but I think most of the best video game wardrobes are intricate like that. Such beautiful detail in armor and the like. I even like Hawke's outfit, whatever the hell s/he's wearing. :P
