Sorry Cullen, you were not nearly enough of a trainwreck for our tastes in Inquisition. Samson though, A+, 10/10, would kick the shit out of him again.
Cullen, you're too handsome to be tortured. You should know this!
I have to admit I was never impressed with Samson. I was far more impressed with Calperna as far as Corpheus's dragons went both story wise and as a character.
Ah Samson, though I doubt that you will be a companion in Dragon Age: Tevinter I shall so wish that you are. He'd definitely be one of the more interesting Bioware companions if so made. After all unlike Calpernia I do not think Samson CAN die in the game. Soo. . . See you in the next game? *hopeful*
@aline1: Truly? I've always felt the exact opposite. Samson had been established as an character already so it was so much more gratifying to learn why he went down the route that he did. Calpernia just felt kinda... bland to me.
@Willinium: Different tastes I guess. Calpernia had understandable respectable motivations dealing with saving and reforming her homeland and she was honestly respected by Corpheus who freed her from slavery. Corpheus also regrets what he feels he will have to do to her after drinking from the well and laments that the potential of people like her are wasted in modern Tevinter simply because of their orgins which he implies in his journals would have never happened in ancient Tevinter.
Also she never dies in game, the developers went out of their way so that even if you defeated her instead of talking her down she still gets away with the possibility of being alive.
@Willinium: I'm pretty sure you can decide to execute Samson.... I think.
@Billie: To make sure that I wasn't speaking from madness I double checked the wiki. Samson can not actually die from trial. He is either exiled sent away imprisoned or forced to serve in the Inquisition under Commander Cullen.
