Sera is voiced by Robyn Addison.
Sera is impulsive and revels in the moment. For her, it’s not about what’s right, it’s about what’s right now.
Another troublemaker to ass to our cast of characters. Generally an outsider, Sera stumbles upon the Inquisition in the streets of Orlais. She’s brash and fun, and a member of a group previously known in the world of Dragon Age – the Friends of Red Jenny. So it could be cause for speculation the kind of skills and the kind of perks Sera can bring to the table. This group in encountered in a side quest in Dragon Age: Origins. In Dragon Age 2, it is revealed that this is the group who has been providing rewards to Hawke for dealing with the gangs in Kirkwall. This very quickly paints Sera in a group of people who may fall into the Robin Hood type. And it is very clear that Sera fights for the people.
Doing something for the ‘greater good’ makes her angry, because she thinks that’s shorthand for ‘let’s hurt people who don’t deserve it because it’s easier.
It seems like Sera will always be that character searching for the ‘better way’. Unlike the majority of character in the Dragon Age universe (I’m look at you, DA2), Sera fights in the middle. She doesn’t care for politics or things like that – it’s all about the people and what’s right.
Because of this, Sera probably won’t get along with Vivienne. But I do see her enjoying Bull and Varric, to some degree. Because of her stance, I thought she might be one of the characters to get along with Cole, but I was very wrong. She calls him ‘it’. As for the Inquisitor, it has been confirmed that she is a romance option for a female Inquisitor.
So far, I really like Sera and I’m really excited to get to know her. The middle ground is where I tend to fall, and that was something that was definitely lacking from DA2. However, I feel like there will be a natural clash in that many of the decisions that have good effects now may cause bad things to happen later. i like to think of the big picture, and that might cause some issues down the road.
What are your thoughts on Sera so far? Do you wish she was a romance option for a male Inquisitor as well? Let me know in the comments below.
