There are a lot of good hiding places in the library, if one knows where to look. Tiny corners, desks, piles of books - he’s even…
CONFESSION: Jowan was a well written character and I notice how much he stood out when I first played the mage origins. It was later that I read he was originally written as a party companion, and that shows. I wish we had gotten him as one. I can’t imagine the interesting conversations between him and Wynne would be like or him and Alistair.
"They brought me to Denerim to await execution."
Apparently Jowan is a massive base-breaker. I didn’t know this until recently. If nothing else, I like that he proves (at least outside of the mage origin, I don’t know if he’s an ass there) that not all maleficarum are evil, twisted bastards. It’s nice to see that you don’t have to be a soulless devil to practice blood magic (though there are admittedly some concerns with the practice, possession being one of them). That was really the one thing I came away with from Jowan, and I really liked it.
And this might be shallow, but I also find his face incredibly beautiful. Not necessarily in an attractive way, but how it’s modeled. My inner art nerd is coming out, but the planes of his face, the way it catches shadow and throws light, makes my heart pitter patter.
Surana, Amell, Anders, and Jowan were all friends at the circle of Magi.
Confession: I wish Jowan could be a Companion, he just seems like such a nice guy. I got really upset when I found out that after his quest and that of the Redcliffe castle he couldn’t be a companion. and even SADDER when I found out he was a scrapped companion.
Confession: When I played my mage run I wanted to support Jowan even after finding him in Redcliffe, but was disappointed to find I had to view him with a certain amount of suspicion. More than that, I was disappointed that I couldn’t take an in between stance on blood magic. I had hoped to play a rebellious mage who thought there was no bad magic, just bad mages, but found myself shoehorned into the same binary sides that everyone else had on blood magic.
This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said
“Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad)
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
I’d find that kid and return his friend to him with the good news.
I wanted to but the it box it came in (with the return address) accidentally got taken out to the burn pit before I could write it down. My only hope is for this post to go insanely viral and her hear about it and that he did his job, which was helping me do mine.
