When I asked Leliana about Morrigan in DAI I was a little surprised at her negative attitude. It wasn't even based on the DAO playthrough where a bugged Leliana accused me of being unfaithful despite never romancing her either, so something must have happened when I wasn't paying attention. So, I have a theory...

Reader Comments:

Saw the title, saw Leliana, thought it is going to be comic about how she wanted to kill your character.

Still, unless Leliana was made ruthless in DAO, then I'm quite sure it is more towards the disposition of the ladies. Leliana probably was in a team when Morrigan argued against helping Redcliff for example (or so my blurry memory tells me, it's been far too long). Or being ruthless towards mages in the tower and overall mages under Chantry.

Though now I think about it after being Left Hand of the Divine (spying, killing, assassinations), mage rebelion and explosion at the conclave when she was hardened (if not before) she kind of should be more understanding of Morrigan and her way of thinking and acting.

Really? Leliana reacting that way towards Morrigan didn't surprise me at all. It's an entirely fair assessment of Morrigan in DAO where she suggests doing the most evil thing available to you at most opportunities.

Surprised ?
They are at each others throats for the whole game.

@mamiser: I dunno. Leiliana does bad things, but she usually intends for them to serve some greater good. Even if you let her fall her lowest, she does utterly terrifying things for the Inquisition, not for her own personal gain. Morrigan on the other hand generally advises utterly self-serving evil.

As good a theory as any, I would say.

I mean, Morrigan always struck me as someone who would prank someone for shits and grins and then viciously deny that she would even have an interest in such frivolities. I have to wonder if she ever spooked Alistair a time or two.

Swooping is bad.

aside from morrigan comments during quests, like not helping the mages, redcliff, etc.. which is the opposite of leliana was in origins; there is also their banter in which morrigan said quite hurtful things to leliana.
her dislikement toward morrigan make perfect sense to me. what i enjoyed was later in skyhold in which leliana says that having kieran change morrigan for the better.

PS: on a side note, leliana's angry face in the last panel looks really cute =D

I LOVE the way you drew the Halamshiral uniforms! Great job, I spent several moments just admiring them.

Although I like your explanation much better, I sort of assumed that Leliana was salty about Morrigan's disappearing act before/after the Battle of Denerim (depending on if the Warden took her up on the ritual offer or not). Leliana has always struck me as someone who is big on loyalty, so I imagine she'd be pretty upset by it

@mamiser: I mean, I don't doubt that she wants to murder my incompetent inquisitor but... she's been satisfied with sister Natalie... and ignoring my orders... and becoming the Divine despite my wishes...
I have regrets about hardening her, ok?

@Norgrath: My impression of Morrigan might be clouded by That Voice and her also being really funny. That is a solid combo, no please don't look closer at my other favorites, we don't need to go further into this...

@Sharp-Claw: You know... reading everyone's comments... I am getting the feeling that I uh... may be a tad too forgiving in real life. My natural reaction was "yeah but like, they were still friends so... you assume she's going through some shit and forgive that...?"

@riverdaleswhiteflash: But... but... look at how she grows during the game, the further away from Flemeth you get her!

@Broseidon: Alistair was originally the victim of a similar comic idea, before DAI came out and gave me this... because yes, I have no doubt.

@Blazypika2: You guys are bringing up some good points, and I'm still here like "but they were friends???" so uh yeah, maybe I'm uh... the odd one out here.
And I'm glad you like it :D

@kro: Oh, wow, thanks!
Also a good point. But but but... I think Leliana should love Morrigan as much as I do. I think we all should. The only thing she ever did wrong was steal from the Dalish, I tell you.
..... and suggest I sacrifice my father in a blood magic ritual to make myself stronger...
But we don't talk about that last one... mainly because the game wouldn't let me...

I am not sure how ruthless she is as she just follows the warden and complains about wardens who are generally heroic and noble. If you want ruthless try having them veto the character when you try and spare someone, or drag you into a fight.

Like: 'hahaha you thought you could be 100% paragon think again, now side with me. Do you think you have some sort of magic sword which can command everything?' They then pull such a choice by taking away a choice you think you can make, but you are wrong and now you lost some reputation points, and Minsk leaves the party with the best swords.

Yeah, Lelli's tone is hostile int hat scene but at the same time while Morrigan *is* ruthless and capable of anything that's not necessarily a bad thing? Right? Like, she's pretty easy to read and figure out too just...anticipate?

Not alone in this. I thought saving the world together instantly made you bffs even if you insult each other. Real friends call you out on your shit.

Posted @ July 8th, 2019, 7:42 pm

it seems someone on reddit found an unused banter between the two of them. real shame it wasn't in the game. :(

@wildmageguy: This sounds awfully like a bitter memory... I'm personally just glad I haven't had a case of four out of five team members having a fight to the death the moment we set foot in the Nashkel mines again.

@ThatOneDork: That is fair.

@StrangerThanYou: Agreed! If your friends can't tell you that you're being an ass and you need to work on it, then who can?

@Blazypika2: Awww that would have been nice to include :(
