Day Four. Describe your characters relationship with every member of their party.
- Who are they friends with? Who do they argue with?
Alistair - Tangerine and Alistair love each other more than anything. They began as very good friends, so their relationship has a solid basis. After Tangerine passed on her Warden Commander duties, Alistair proposes to her. They have two wedding ceremonies: one in the Chantry, and one in Ostagar with the Dalish. He makes her laugh, and she keeps him grounded and gives him more confidence in himself. They do argue from time to time - Tangerine let Isolde sacrifice herself and perform blood magic, which Alistair obviously was angry about - but they talk through their disagreements as best they can. They’re very happy together.
Morrigan - Morrigan is like an older sister to Tangerine, much to Alistair’s chagrin. They’re very close and trust each other implicitly. When Morrigan disappears, it makes Tangerine sad to think of Morrigan traveling without a friend beside her. After the Dark Ritual, Tangerine has a difficult time with the decision she made to let it happen, but ultimately makes her peace with it. She knows Morrigan’s heart was in the right place, and that if she can’t be the one to give birth to a child of Alistair’s, she’s glad it’s Morrigan to do it instead.
Leliana - Tangerine is close friends with Leliana, but not as close as with Morrigan. Tangerine often does not see eye to eye with Leliana and doesn’t quite understand her faith in the Maker. But she is accepting of Leliana’s faith and admires the strength of it. Tangerine also genuinely enjoys hearing Leliana tell stories and sing songs.
Zevran - Tangerine tried to get along with Zevran. But she could not lie to him and tell him she approved of assassination. She sees a distinct difference between fighting an armed and able opponent, and killing an unsuspecting unarmed target. She was also very uncomfortable with all his overt sexual advances. Even though she knows he did it to nearly everyone, she didn’t appreciate it, and found it especially annoying after she got together with Alistair. Zevran ended up betraying her to the Crows, and she regretfully killed him.
Shale - Tangerine and Shale are good friends, probably to the same level as she is with Leliana. Tangerine thinks Shale is funny, and enjoys her unique perspective on things. They also relate as outsiders amongst humans; as an elf whose people have been exploited and oppressed by humans, she empathizes with Shale’s plight as a golem.
The Sten - Tangerine felt that she and Sten weren’t getting along at first, but grew to understand that Sten was just taciturn and not apt to expressing himself. Tangerine is very straight-forward and blunt, which Sten seemed to respect. They’re about as close as a qunari and one outside the Qun could possibly be. He calls her kadan, and Tangerine is honored to be considered as such.
Wynne - Though Tangerine has argued with Wynne on several occasions, Tangerine respects the older woman and appreciates her advice. They like to have philosophical discussions together. While Tangerine calls her a friend, they have more of a close teacher-student relationship than a traditional friendship.
Oghren - Tangerine likes Oghren - she finds him funny and a great warrior. But she has difficulty relating to him as more than a comrade-in-arms. She thinks he’s gross and smells kinda funny, but cares for him as one of her Warden brethren. She thinks of him as a short drunken uncle whose heart is in the right place and just happens to be great in a battle.
Dog – Tangerine named her mabari “Satsuma”, which is a bit of a pun on her own name (as tangerines and satsumas are both different varieties of orange-like citrus fruit). Tangerine dotes on her mabari, showering him with gifts at every opportunity. He is her constant companion, and they love each other very much. After having to leave her clan, Satsuma and Alistair become her family, and she defends them fiercely.
Loghain – Tangerine beheaded Loghain. After his betrayal at Ostagar, his constant attempts to have them killed, and his enslavement of the Denerim elves (no matter what his excuses), she really kind of hated him by the time the Landsmeet rolled around. She had no mercy for him, choosing to fight the duel against him herself. She has no respect whatsoever for traitors, especially when it leads to the slaughter of hundreds of honorable soldiers.
