casavir is isabela's first mate on her ship, the Siren's Cry (named in honor of her first ship, the Siren's Call, on which he also served as first mate for several years). Sometime between meeting the Hero of Fereldan in Denerim and being marooned in Kirkwall, Casavir was captured in Orlais and held prisoner (why is up to you - maybe got caught stealing from someone important?). Isabela managed to get him out by bribing the guards, but she was so pissed & wouldn't let him come aboard the ship. Sometime shortly afterwards, she crashed in Kirkwall, and well, you know that story. After getting a new ship, Isabela found Casavir and invited him to return as her first mate. He likes to joke that the only reason she crashed is because he wasn't there, which she rolls her eyes at and threatens to make him walk the plank for. anywayssss, we can work out further plot ideas and such. his background and age are up to you, as long as he was maybe at least 20ish during Origins. Their relationship is strictly platonic, because she refuses to sleep with any of her crew. They probably have more like a brother & sister relationship <3 his face is open too, i just threw orlando bloom up there idk
next is Aveline, the captain of the Kirkwall guard. she and Isabela are total opposites, really. it's important to Aveline that people are kept safe, and she's willing o make sacrifices to ensure that happens, whereas Isabela really thinks only for herself. they argue a lottttt BUT somehow they grew a real bond. basically, they curse at each other & call each other names, but if an outsider ever threatened the other, they'd speak out on their behalf ("HEY, only i can call Isabela a whore" or something like that) & they've got each other's backs in battle if they're really in danger. i don't really have lots of ideas for these two; i just thought the banter would be fun to play with (: let me know if you need face claim suggestions!
aaaand this is Merrill, the sweet and innocent lil blood mage. what she's been up to since DA:2 is up to the player, and she and Isabela probably weren't able to keep in touch much. BUT they need to rekindle their friendship, because it's just too cute. LOOK AT THEM
. Merrill is just in awe of Isabela, basically, because she's everything she's not. And Isabela is very protective of Merrill. She also likes to flirt with Merrill just to watch her squirm adorably, that is when it's not just going over her head. I'm open to either a romantic or platonic relationship with these two, but i have lots of ideas! here's just a couple:
- merrill practices a one-liner flirt for weeks to use on isabela, and when she finally builds up the nerve, it stuns isabela speechless (a true rarity). could be just for fun or because merrill's actually into her & has just been afraid to express it
- merrill accidentally summons a demon & it preys on isabela (she's easy prey tbh). she has to save her!
let me know if you need face claim ideas or anything of the sort <3
also wanted are crew members on Isabela's ship, the Siren's Cry. they do all sorts of work, from smuggling to actual legal work. they all have a variety of backgrounds, so they're all super open. can be any age, race, gender, etc. Also planning on adding Castillon to this list, but I wanted to get these three up before bed, lol <3
