• i’ve seen a lot of fandom negativity lately so i think i’m going to start posting DA character posit... dragon age fenris FenHawke theres been a lot of wank on my dash so i think im just gonna start a series of awesome character shit i'll probably just do the kirkwall crew tho since theyre my fave crew DA character positivity actualhawke •

i’ve seen a lot of fandom negativity lately so i think i’m going to start posting DA character positive stuff and since i’ve been in a fenris mood lately i’ll start there so here are some awesome things about my fave glowing elf:

  • fenris is incredibly intelligent and diplomatic. he speaks three different languages and effortlessly negotiates with the qunari—the arishok even compliments him.
  • oh and he does all that and he can’t even read or write yet like??? fenris is hella smart.
  • he’s actually pretty chill and polite most of the time until someone pushes his buttons. which is pretty much true for most people.
  • he’s not afraid to admit when he’s wrong. in fact when hawke offers orana a job and fenris misunderstands this as hawke taking orana on as a slave, fenris apologizes when hawke clears up the matter.
  • he also hosts card games at his house and enjoys hanging out with aveline’s husband, donnic. 
  • oh and he’s really damn good at wicked grace—so much so that anders owes him a lot of money according to the legacy dlc.
  • he’s bitty and he can carry a really big sword.
  • he’s voiced by gideon emery. 
  • fenris is extremely affectionate with a romanced hawke??? and extremely open by the end game. hawke is everything to him and it’s so awesome to see fenris unguarded around someone he cares about.
  • oh and hawke might be smooth but fenris can be too—remember the “perhaps i’ll practice my flattery for your next visit” line? get it.
  • and then he pulls the “there are no puppy eyes” line when merrill points out how he looks at hawke.
  • speaking of the fenrismance, one thing i really like is that fenris knows when to step out and work on himself before he lets his relationship with hawke go any further. i know he later says he was “running away” but i think it’s admirable that he knows when he’s not emotionally ready to commit to something like that.
  • fenris’s romance is great because it doesn’t fall into the “love cures all” trope. he tries to cope with his trauma realistically and he’s never suddenly cured because he’s in a relationship with hawke. in a friendmance hawke stands by him and his decisions and his entire romance is about respect and unconditional support and i love that.
  • one of the best things about his personal arc is even when fenris seeks revenge on the people who have hurt him, you can wholeheartedly support him. there are way too many stories that demonize people for seeking revenge on their abusers, and i like that hawke has the option to stand by him.
  • fenris’s laugh + cough combo when hawke tells a bad joke.
  • he’s just as witty as purple hawke: 
    • Fenris: How is it you get into these situations so often?
    • Hawke: What do you mean?
    • Fenris: Hmm. Attacked by dwarves, approached by strangers, stumbling upon ancient riddles… madness.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)
    • Hawke: It’s a gift.
    • Fenris: (laughs) Well I think you should return it.
  • despite the fact he’s not a fan of mages, he does get along with a mage!hawke and bethany. in fact he even compliments her:
    • Fenris: You should wear one of those Orlesian dresses, Bethany.
    • Bethany: Why? Because I’m a girl? Because I should wear big, flowing skirts?
    • Fenris: Because you’d look pretty in one.
    • Bethany: I…oh, I see. They are pretty, aren’t they?
  • speaking of bethany, he’s actually incredibly kind to her:
    • Fenris: You must hate the darkspawn, after what they did to your home.
    • Bethany: And Carver. A little. 
    • Fenris: I never knew him. I’m sorry for your loss.
    • Bethany: Thank you.
  • speaking of friendships, his banter with varric is pretty awesome too:
    • Fenris: I thought all dwarves had beards. Where’s yours?
    • Varric: I misplaced it, along with my sense of dwarven pride and my gold-plated noble caste pin.
    • Fenris: I thought maybe it fell onto your chest.
    • Varric: Oh-ho! The broody elf tells a joke!
    • Varric: You know, if you need advice on how to lay low I can give you some.
    • Fenris: Being short would make for an excellent start, I suspect.
    • Varric: Keep that up, serah, and you can keep on hiding like a rank amateur.
    • Varric: So what do you do in that gigantic house all day?
    • Fenris: Dance, of course.
    • Varric: Really?
    • Fenris: I run from room to room, choreographing routines.
    • Varric: You’re actually joking. Alert the Chantry! They need to put this on the calendar!
    • Fenris: And you thought I was always serious.
  • his friendship with isabela is pretty great, especially when he offers to let her guess the color of his underwear. 
  • speaking of bela it’s great that while they are friends and sometimes they don’t see eye to eye on mages being free, they challenge each other but it doesn’t affect their friendship at all.
  • he’s on good enough terms with aveline that she keeps him informed and keeps her patrols away from his house so that he has a place to stay.
  • after the events of DA2 fenris dedicates himself to fighting off slavers and freeing slaves. he could have easily enjoyed his freedom but it’s amazing that he uses it to help others.
