(→‎It occurs to me...: The line "I hated it" gives +5 approval regardless of gender. Checked it on my female human rogue. No idea for mages. Also, this needs info on other races. Might be a default approval regardless of the character origins.)

Cassandra's Disposition

The player can tell generally how Cassandra feels about the Inquisitor by engaging her in a "generic" conversation (i.e. a conversation where her greeting and farewell are not changed by any other factors such as a quest or cutscene).

Hostile (-5 to -75):
Cassandra will greet the Inquisitor with:
  • "Go on, then."
  • "What is it?"
  • "Surely you have better things to do."
Cassandra will bid the Inquisitor farewell with "As you wish."
Neutral (-5 to 34):
Cassandra will greet the Inquisitor with:
  • "Greetings."
  • "Yes?"
  • "Do you need something?"
Cassandra will bid the Inquisitor farewell with "Another time, then."
Warm (35 to 74):
Cassandra will still use the "Neutral" set of greetings, but may also add:
  • "Hello again."
  • "Is there anything you need?"
  • "I trust all is well?"
Cassandra will bid the Inquisitor farewell with "Another time, then."
Friendly (75 to 125):
Cassandra will drop the "Neutral" greetings and will still use the "Warm" set of greetings, but may also add:
  • "What do you need, my friend?"
  • "It's good to see you."
Cassandra will bid the Inquisitor farewell with "Another time, then."
Note: If Cassandra is romanced, she will drop all standard greetings and will greet the inquisitor with "The sight of you warms the heart." and "You are quite distracting you know?"


Did I do the right thing?

Haven only, first attempt to speak to her...

(Disgusted Noise.)
  • (Romance) You're impressive. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
  • Are you all right?
  • You need stronger dummies. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
  • Was that supposed to be me?
One day, they may write about me as a traitor, a madwoman, a fool. And they may be right.
  • [Investigate.]
No approval changes
  • You had to do it.
  • It's too late to turn back.
  • It was foolish. - DAIApproval.png Disapproves
I cannot afford to be so careless again.
  • You had cause. - DAIApproval.png Approves
  • Glad to hear it. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
  • No, you can't. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Disapproves
Her wording here will vary depending on whether or not the Herald has openly voiced an opinion on being the Herald of Andraste. All variations come down to a single question...
I'm curious. Do you even believe in the Maker?
  • (Special) I believe in Elven gods. (Elf only)
  • (Special) I'm Qunari, remember? (Qunari only)
  • (Special) I'm a Dwarf, remember? (Dwarf only)
  • Yes - DAIApproval.png Approves
  • No - DAIApproval.png Slightly Disapproves
  • I don't know.

Return to Haven's Chantry.

Haven only, after Address the Chantry in Val Royeaux.

Cullen: It's a shame the templars have abandoned their senses as well as the capital.
No approval changes
Cullen: You think the mage rebellion is more united? It could be ten times worse!
  • We should meet the mages. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Slightly Disapproves
  • We should find the templars. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Slightly Approves
  • You must choose soon. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Approves

Deal. With. It.

Haven only, after In Hushed Whispers OR Champions of the Just
A cutscene will play of Cassandra arguing with a mage or templar. That bit will vary, but her lines with The Inquisitor, The Inquisitor's lines and the dialogue choices are always the same. There is one romance option, but otherwise no choices cause any approval changes.

The fight with Varric

Skyhold, after speaking to Hawke...

Varric: You kidnapped me! You interrogated me! What did you expect?
  • [Intervene.] - DAIApproval.png Varric Approves
  • [Stay out of it.] - DAIApproval.png Varric Disapproves
if chose [Stay out of it.]...
Varric: Look at her! She's finally lost it!
  • Stop this Fighting! - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Slightly Disapproves
  • This is funny. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Disapproves
  • Leave me out of this. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Slightly Approves | DAIApproval.png Varric Slightly Disapproves
Cassandra: Hawke would have been at the Conclave! If anyone could have saved Most Holy...
  • Cassandra, back off! - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Disapproves
  • What's done is done.
  • Varric's not at fault. - DAIApproval.png Varric Approves
  • Varric, you bastard. - DAIApproval.png Varric Greatly Disapproves
Cassandra: We all know who's side you're on Varric. It will never be the Inquisition's.
  • We need to work together. - DAIApproval.png Varric Slightly Approves
  • Varric's earned his place. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Disapproves | DAIApproval.png Varric Approves
  • That's unfair Cassandra. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Disapproves | DAIApproval.png Varric Approves
  • I'm well aware. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Approves | DAIApproval.png Varric Disapproves (twice)
Varric leaves...
I am such a fool.
Q What if it had been different?
  • (Romance) I still like you. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Slightly Approves
  • Don't blame yourself. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Approves
  • We're all fools, Cassandra. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Approves
  • We need to do better. - DAIApproval.png Cassandra Disapproves
if chose [What if it had been different?] will remove romance option.

Begins Guilty Pleasures

I don't know what you're talking about.
No approval changes
It's... one of Varric's tales. Swords & Shields. The latest chapter.
  • You don't need to hide it. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
  • So you've read them all?
  • Why waste your time? - DAIApproval.png Slightly Disapproves
Whatever you do, don't tell Varric.

  • He'd be pleased.
  • Wouldn't dream of it.
  • Seriously?

On Being Divine

Skyhold, after Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts...

Mother Giselle: Talk to her, Your Worship.

  • Having fun? - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
  • What's this about?
So now the Chantry bandies our names about without even asking us first.
Q Is that even possible? (repeat)
  • (Special) Why am I not a candidate? (repeat)
  • So refuse.
  • Who cares about the Chantry? - DAIApproval.png Disapproves
  • You'd be perfect.
The Chantry should provide faith. Hope. Instead, it cannot veer from its course, even in the face of certain death.
Q Do you really feel that way? (repeat)
  • The Chantry has failed. - DAIApproval.png Greatly Disapproves
  • These are extreme times.
  • So do better. - DAIApproval.png Approves
It needs to change. Perhaps I must be the one to change it.
  • (Romance) I like your determination. (repeat) - DAIApproval.png Approves
  • (Nobility Knowledge) I can help you become Divine. (ends conversation) - DAIApproval.png Approves (twice)

  • [Tell her.]
  • [Make something up.] (ends conversation) - DAIApproval.png Disapproves
Line varies depending on race

  • Eventually, perhaps.
  • Home is wherever I am. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves

  • I'd go now, if I had a choice. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Disapproves

Something is troubling me...

Q4 You worked for the Divine?
  • (Special) What is a Right Hand?
  • (Special) You believed in her. (adds Q5)
Q5 How did you become Right Hand?
No approval changes in first set of choices
Yet I became the Right Hand, and they are forgotten.
Q What became of the mages? (repeat)
  • (Romance) You're delightful. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
  • You're still a hero.
  • Impressive!
  • Typical of the Chantry.

Tell me about the Seekers.

Q1 But what are Seekers? (adds Q4)

So you're a romantic?

Skyhold, available after cutscene Swords & Shields...

It is passion. It is being swept away by the pursuit of an ideal. What is not to like about that?
  • (Romance) I like that you like it. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
  • Nothing at all. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
  • It's just unexpected.
  • You're wasting time. - DAIApproval.png Disapproves

Do you want to be Divine?

Skyhold, available after cutscene On Being Divine

Why should what I want matter?
No approval changes
So I look upon this as an opportunity.  I owe it to myself and all of Thedas to seek the Sunburst Throne.
  • You'd make a good Divine. - DAIApproval.png Approves
  • Perhaps there's another way. - DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
