can you do the question meme for your inquisitor adaar? super curious about her C:
HELL YEAH I can.
01. Full name:
Ari Adaar. “Ari” comes from the fact that she’s an established character and in every other form her name is “Ariadne”, and luckily coincides with a word in Qunlat. Granted, it presumably literally means “person”, but I don’t think Tal-Vashoth are the hottest at picking names. (See: Maraas.)
02. Best friend:
She plays herself off as serious and dry but is really incredibly sarcastic and has a great sense of humor, so she tends to fall pretty easily into the role of secretly approving straight man. I expect she’ll get along really well with Varric and probably Sera, at the very least.
She likes the ladies, and only the ladies.
04. Favorite color:
05. Relationship status:
Single, as of the beginning of Inquisition. Her last relationship ended badly.
06. Ideal mate:
Being somewhat new to the whole “actual romance” thing, she’s not really sure. I imagine, at least right now, that she’s keeping herself open to anything that might come along.
Women who can hold their own in a fight.
08. Favorite food:
I’m not sure who she’s going to romance yet, so I can’t really tell you. I don’t think she really gets crushes, though - she gets intrigued, and then she goes for it.
10. Favorite music:
I really wonder what the qunari stance on music is. I suppose it has a place in the Qun if it has a function? I can’t really see them making those sorts of things for pleasure. If that’s the case, I imagine she’s curious about, and enjoys, all kinds of music, simply for the novelty.
11. Biggest fear:
Living outside the Qun is not easy for her, and leaving it was not a decision she made lightly. The Inquisition is probably going to be the best possible thing that could have happened to her, if only because it will give her another role to fulfill.
12. Biggest fantasy:
The woman she loved showing up to say she was wrong not to leave the Qun, and that she wants them to be together. Alternatively, getting Varric to let her try Bianca.
13. Bad habits:
Ari is very perceptive, even to the rather alien cultures and emotions she experiences in those outside of the Qun, and very sure of herself, so once she thinks she knows the best course of action, she’ll barrel along regardless of what others might think. She also has trouble depending on other people, and as such always acts under the assumption that she’ll be alone, again, eventually.
14. Biggest regret:
Sometimes she regrets leaving the Qun, but at this point she can’t see herself returning. Mostly she regrets she didn’t convince her lover to come with her.
15. Best kept secrets:
She plays all of that VERY close to the chest, and considering how aloof she acts, most people don’t realize she’s actually a giant romantic still trying to get over her first heartbreak.
16. Last thought:
17. Worst romantic experience:
18. Biggest insecurity:
She struggles daily with the reality of not having a place, of being able to do anything, and therefore potentially nothing. It’s scary.
19. Weapon of choice:
She’s an archer!
20. Role Model:
I can’t imagine she has one.
