DA:O The Locket, p7 by bukittyan DA:O The Locket, p7 by bukittyan
Warning! Contains spoilers for the Arl of Redcliffe.

Beginning: Page One
Previous: Page Six
Next: Page Eight

******
I swear I didn't set out to make Isolde that evil. >.>

Originally, this flashback scene was to be one page. I'm glad I made the decision to make it two. I just hope I was able to do the emotional states justice. And I believe this marks the halfway point!

I totally don't blame you for egging Isolde on. >_> I don't take her attitude, and kinda harassed her each time I get.. Kinda rebuttal for treating Alistair like shit. >.>

Heh, well she tended to treat my elf like crap too so Faylen wasn't too inclined to be that nice to her. But... I don't like one-dimensional characters and, up until DA2's MoA DLC, I kind of could get where she was coming from.

True.. But can I hate her Harpy like shriek? Or feel happy when she says, "How dare you!" With venom? :D I also noticed that Isolde does not like anyone talking to Teagan.. Do you think something is going on with them? Because I noticed for a brief second in DA:O when you go see Teagan at the Mill. When he finds out that Isolde is alive, I noticed a flicker of emotion before it turned stoic. Hmmm, didn't seem family like to me! >.O Especially after seeing how Fergus, Nathaniel and Deliah acted when they saw each other.. TOTALLY something must be going on..

You can hate her all you want! :XD: She wasn't written sympathetically, to be honest. I kind of wanted nothing to be happening between her and Teagan since she needs to have something likeable about her, but I have a feeling that there kind of is now. Which is a bit of a shame.

Oh I know, and I plan to. >.O It totally is, but I guess they really didn't want her to be written sympathetic. Maker, I guess it's commendable that she would risk herself for her kid. But I'm concerned for Connor in how Isolde is going to treat him now that he is a circle mage. >_>

Wow, so much depth here. I love how this whole comic has perfectly filled in the empty space left by Alistair's story. And no, I don't think you set out to make Isolde look evil, just as the game itself doesn't. What we have in Isolde is a perfect example of a shades of Greycharacter. She Loves her Family, and her Son, however it's to the exclusion of all else to the point where her love acutally endangers others and even opens the door for a greater Evil to come into thier lives. She's a tragic and flawed character, but not one I'd label as evil in the classive sense of the term.

Your young Alistair is just soooo sweet! (Awwwww....) And it is a defamation to say he has a bad temper! We should throw Isolde, together with Loghain and Anora, in a mob of Alistair's fangirls. They would NOT survive THAT!

Why do they NOT give us another option to kill her other than killing Connor or using blood magic? The woman is an utter bitch 99.9% of the time, and if she isn't she still whines.

True, but I think you'd lose approval points with Alistair if you killed her. Can't have that! ^__^

Buuuuuuuut... little Alistair cannot possibly be a threat for Connor, they weren't the same age at all. I mean Connor wasn't even born when Alistair was a kid, right? :confused:
Reply
:iconbukittyan:
bukittyan Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
I'm guessing that Connor was just born when Alistair was sent away, or at least conceived. I believe Alistair was 10 when they sent him away, and Connor looks to be about 10-12, so it's possible that Connor might have been around. Isolde, thinking Alistair is Eamon's child, would see him as a threat since Alistair could try and kill his half-brother, or injure him, since Alistair is older. And having a child would make her much more insistant that he leave NOW.

I thin he know the arl family,And he knows Conner,They maby stayed in touch after Alistair left..But I think they who made the game forgotten that part when they made the game..I dunno..But Alistair diden't talked with the arl waht I know..Oh..how confusing..

I was wondering the same thing... Connor appears to be 9 years old tops. Alistair should be something around 22-23 at his youngest, so unless Alistair is sixteen, it's a bit here and there if it works like that.

Not that it isn't a great page! I really like the work you've done on their faces. :)
