As always, he will be voiced by Brian Bloom.
Varric Tethras is one part adventurous rogue, one part dashing storyteller, and three parts trouble.
(And Bianca – never forget Bianca). Unless you’re new to DA, you met Varric as a required companion for Dragon Age 2. For Dragon Age: Inquisition, it still looks like he’s required, but may not necessarily have the Inquisitor’s back quite in the way he had Hawke’s back.
His character profile is very clear that nothing at all has gotten better for Varric. He’s, obviously, still finding himself thrust into the center of these conflicts. However, this time he doesn’t have a friend in sight. At least not at the start of it. But he remains, more or less, the storyteller we know and love.
He tells stories to rewrite events he’s lived through and make them less senseless, the people in them more inspirational, and to drag some meaning out of the mess that surrounds people he cares about.
True to character, he makes an effort to get along with every member of the inquisition. Save for Cassandra, of course. And, as seen in the 30 minutes of gameplay leaked a couple months ago, Varric wants to help people. A decision the Inquisitor (or any character, for that matter) makes that goes against this will almost definitely have a negative bearing on Varric. Whether or not he is a romance option for any version of the inquisitor is still up in the air.
I am definitely excited to see Varric. With a 50 hour story arc and 100 hours of content, I’m very excited to see where the story takes him. What are your thoughts on Varric? Yay or Nay to a possible romance? Let me know in the comments below!
