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. >_>

Hahaha, I wasn't too sure in Origins. After seeing her in Mark of the Assassin, I've had to rethink that position.

She's in MotA. Damn I wish I could get the DLCs

aw, too bad you can't. I enjoyed Legacy a lot. MoTA was pretty good too, though I didn't like the puzzles. :( Maybe they'll go on sale?

That's how I got Awakening. Be nice if they would sell the DLCs like they did Awakening

At least, not to Alistair. Or my Warden. But my Warden kinda eggs her on. XD

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.
