UNBOUNDHere on Unbound, our plot follows four different timelines, set throughout the canonical history of the Dragon Age. The events following Trespasser, the time of the Inquisition, the rise of the Champion of Kirkwall and the quest of the Warden against the Fifth Blight.
And So is the Golden City blackened
With each step you take in my Hall.
Marvel at perfection, for it is fleeting.
You have brought Sin to Heaven
And doom upon all the world.

hi i'm alayna and i'm here to brawl. here are my garbage babies ... who may or may not be willing to brawl.
feel free to hit me up on discord, im a loser with her phone on 24/7 and i'm always ready to scream. i scream about all things. i love screaming and i love to scream with you about our children. little things? big things? all good screaming material. headcanons are good and 100% a healthy part of any relationship.
but really, just stop by to say hello. im here and i will probably message you something stupid like "hey, is your character allergic to bees?" bc i love stupid shit like that.
finally in kirkwall, it's a miracle she wasn't just sent right back on a boat to the ass end of thedas. lucky for her a certain kade colquhoun took pity on this tiny preteen mage and took her in. she was in kirkwall up until the rebellion. note, she was like... twelve to seventeen during the da2 timeline, but she was around. perpetually frightened of templars. trying to weasel her way into the mage rebellion in the later years tho she's literally a child.
ever since the kirkwall rebellion paige has loyally been sulking in kade's shadow, doing mage rebellion things. you know, killing templars. ignoring your demons. its all fun and games out here, boys.
currently no one knows that paige is a filthy maleficar. she first used blood magic in the kirkwall rebellion, being cornered by too many templars against little ol' her. she uses it sparingly - maybe she's guilty of doing it ... sometimes.... or whatever .... she's not a great mage and you know what makes you a little stronger? blood magic.
with two daggers given to her by zevran and a sack of jewelry, isabela bribed the men of the siren's call, luis's ship, to get her to llomeryn. isabela got herself a new crew and a captain who coined the name isabela. she killed him over an insult, becoming captain of the siren's call and well... the rest is history!
anyway thanks for reading that fun summary. we all know about isabela and how she stumbled into hawke's merry gang of misfits. she was there up until the kirkwall rebellion, except for that period she left with the tome of koslun (~9:34) and between 9:34-9:37 (she left after da2 act 2, returning just before act 3).
after that she set sail and has been at sea ever since. she struck up a deal to serve the inquisition but has no allegiance to them. in 9:44 she's still out doing her typical raiding, smuggling, occasionally taking down slaver ships with the tiny little conscience she has. it's not unlikely to run into her at port cities or llomeryn.
one day she discovered by a certain lady jade vidal, a lady of halamshiral, a bardmaster herself. inez was never very emotive, always kept a straight face no matter what was in front of her. a tragedy occurred in front of saeriels eyes and yet.... nothing? no reaction? lady vidal saw potential in saeriel, a girl already proficient at instruments who just needed the simple steering of a learned woman.
i happily imagine that up into the war of the lions, inez was a simple bard. doing normal bard things. then she started working under the notorious briala - sabotaging imperial armies and her bardmaster died and she was passed the mantle of the chariot for the bellwether. she believed in briala... up until she didn't. she, since about mid/late 9:42, has dedicated herself to the bellwether.
for the most part, inez is stationed in val royeaux. but you know, minstreling and barding can take you all over the place.
a companion recommended joining the grey wardens, who offered amnesty to templars and mages alike. growing up in the anderfels, isara was no stranger to darkspawn or the wardens. they had saved a member of her clan. what other choice did she have? wander, pray that she could find the dalish? her companion did not survive the joining and isara has carved her name into her staff.
so as of 9:44, isara has only been with the wardens for a few years. she Struggles TM a lot with her identity; with her new duty as a grey warden and what she thought was her life purpose, serving her clan and the dalish. not that she would just up and leave the wardens - she's a very dedicated person who gives her all to everything ... but ... just leaving her previous life behind is difficult.
Niamh wants to braid her hair and encourage her to follow her dreams. As they are apostate hobos and any dreams they might dream would be inherently impractical, this may not be helpful, but she is trying to help. The hair is at least a more realistic goal. Kinloch hold was a real formative experience for her as well and sometimes she goes nonverbal if you bring it up?? A sign that the problem was managed deftly and with full consideration of their well-being ofc. I'm really just repeating all've the previously expressed sentiments here to mark that we should thread.
Yes!! I think it'd be fun to do something similar to your past Isabela/Willow thread, but instead of Brannigan meeting her it's Willow and it's all so …. familiar? but instead of that rambunctious little girl it's a woman who has come into her own. Something inquisition-era would problly def lend itself to them running into eachother again. I'll hit you up on the discord soon to run some ideas by you :)
