Do you play on PC or console? Cuz on PC there's a mod that makes him recruitable. Not voiced, but you can have him in your party(he kicks butt, too).

I play on PC, though I've never tried to download any mods. I'm not sure if they would work, since mine is a polish version of the game. Oh well, still got my imagination. XD

Aaaaaah Jowan! He looks conflicted here- smiling mouth, sad/uncertain eyebrows- which seems... appropriate to the scene. XD Aww damn you made him so cute! <3 I love Jowan's dumb ass way too much...

I’m glad you like it! I wanted his expression to be somewhat bittersweet – taking into account his newfound freedom and the fact that he knows damn well it’s not going to last…as well as the price he had to pay. :)

I always wondered what made him take up blood magic in the first place. Was he going through youthful rebelious phase, or what? Is getting into blood magic equivalent to normal kids wearing all black and getting piercings in the most inappropriate places? Such a decent guy in the end…I even made him fight Connor’s demon in the Fade to try and weasel him out of his predicament. With no luck, as it turned out. Circle laws are way too messed up. :/

And like you pointed out, he’s a cutie. XD

I've always kind of wondered if it had anything to do with Uldred's pre-rebellion "recruitment." We never hear anything from either side regarding a connection, but considering all of the other young bloodmages (enemies in apprentice robes during the Broken Circle) involved in Uldred's uprising... and how hard it is to imagine a guy as fail as Jowan is becoming competent in the subject on his own...

In the end though, he really is a good-hearted young man. Poor, dumb, doomed Jowan. :<

Yeah, it sounds very plausible. I always want decent characters to have their happy ending.:( I've been meaning to ask...I haven't played Dragon Age 2 (and probably won't be playing it for a long time, since my PC is not up to it) Is Jowan making any kind of cameo in it?

I'm kind of a sicko... I like the Big Sad, so I often like the unhappy endings, narratively, even better than the happy ones, even if I feel bad for the characters involved. >_>;

No DAII Jowan cameo, alas. I suppose it's possible that he -could- appear if you forced him to run away from the dungeon, but as far as I know he does not. I've always felt that if you send him to the Circle it's just as much a death sentence as allowing Eamon's men to execute him, because he's a known malificar who has commited serious crimes, in an environment where the Ferelden Circle has been nearly annihilated by the actions of blood mages. When he goes back to the tower, are the Templars there REALLY going to allow him to re-join the Circle like nothing happened? I think not; he'll either be executed there, or made Tranquil... which seems to cruelest fate of all, given that he only left the Tower because he was trying to avoid Tranquility in the first place.

Where the hell is the Right of Conscription when you need it? D:
Why destroy a decent man who made several mistakes, but bears no ill will?
His fate haunts me somewhat. And I just can't bring myself to think he was made Tranquil. It's a fate more cruel than death for me. :crying:

I'm a sucker for happy endings. :) In my first playthrough Alistair went and killed himself slaying the Archdemon...and my brain was fried with grief for some time. -_-
Drama is great...but I seriously hate seeing people suffer. XD

My Warden sent him back to the Circle, but... well, I rarely write fanfic, but I wrote an angsty fanfic about that actually. XD He was an Amell, he knew exactly what waited for Jowan back at the tower- that sending him back there was not a mercy. It broke his stupid little mage heart. I like to think that Jowan was executed just because it seems kinder to both of them than Tranquility. Imagine, returning to the tower one day and finding him there... horrible. ;___;

I... only like seeing fictional people suffer. XD My poor characters. I'm infamous with my RP buddies for torturing them.

Are you talking about your mage Tobiah?
My God, I would probably cry my eyes out if something like
that happened to a person I knew. It' so...gah. ;__;

I can't bring myself to torture my characters. They squirm
and so do I. Yeah, I'm a boring person like that. XD
