Anders


Stories featuring everyone’s favourite apostate abomination!

Anders is a fascinating character to me, chiefly because – despite all his unlikeable qualities (particularly in DA2) – I want to explore the inner workings of his head, and map the transition of his personality from the blarney-spouting would-be rake of Awakening to the man who winds up in Kirkwall.

These stories go a little way towards doing that, I think.
