I think that it might be for the best that gifts to gain approval were not really a thing in DAI like it was in DAO.
But if you ever do want to romance a necromancer, corpses are absolutely the way to go. Trust me. I roleplay one.

Why exactly IS he a necromancer again ? I thought that was a Nevarran thing.

Oh my god, your Cadash inquisitior is so cute!

@Sharp-Claw: In Tevinter they study all kinds of magic, knowledge is power and all. Even forbidden -blood- magic (but that a common knowledge hush-hush...!) I believe he found fascinating the study of the circle of life so he focused his research on that. It could even be that he had a aptitude for that kind of magic. I am not entirely sure if he mentions anything specific in cannon about his choice, only that he is a genius in all things magic in general :P
That's about lore reasons, the game mechanics reason is that there was the need for a mage necromancer in the followers list, what what better than a character from Tevinter, where no subject is a forbidden study (unlike in the Circles in most other places...!)

This might well be one my favourite episode so far! XDD

Q: How many bodies could a Cadash thug huck if a Cadash thug could huck bodies?

If you're gonna give Dorian bodies as a gift, you should be considerate enough to wash the blood off first. Clean bodies have higher approval ratings!

@Sharp-Claw: Why is anyone a necromancer? My kneejerk reaction is "waste not, want not" but I suspect the correct answer is "power" ... and also "*someone* had to be"

@Drew-Weis96: Haha he tries!

@EloriaNekoi: If only Dorian felt the same...

@Guesty Guestface: YES! ... and then a few more... just in case he's being shy about how many he actually wants.

@Guest: Oh no, you're absolutely right D: How rude of me, I... I will just... scrub them in the nearest river? Is that the correct way to go about it?

I like how Dorian-and-Quizzy's necromancy wasn't blood magic, unlike that dude in DA2. Kinda makes me think there should have been an awkward chat with Hawke about picking up the necromancer specialty though, given what happened to Hawke's mother and all. At least Varric could have mentioned it to give everyone who played 2 a bad case of the Feels.

Quiz, baby, the bodies are a great first step. But there comes a time when a handsome young man wants a little more commitment. That second panel he's clearly angling for a kiss--notice the hand sublty pointing towards his face? And when you reach a whole -pile- of bodies? Anything short of a candlelit dinner where you awkwardly hide the ring with small stones tastefully set into a skull shape is just pushing your luck. Dorian's a catch. Some romantic is gonna come along and sweep his feet out from under him if you're not careful. I do have this 50-year-old bottle of Tevinter white handy..... ~waggles eyebrows~

@Ardnax: Personally I missed being able to be a blood mage and still be all righteous about it. It was a fine tradition, I tell you.

@SopranoCat: H-he's new to this, he's trying! (Do you use the bottle of wine to murder people and then give their bodies to the object of your affections?)
