I think a demon companion would make for an interesting party member in Inquisition. We've had a spirit in Justice, a man possessed by what's more or less a demon now in Anders possessed by Vengeance, and now I think we should get a full on demon. With the whole Veil tear thing coming about in Inquisition, there's plenty of reason to think a demon could be out and about on its own in the real world. I'd take another Justice style one, meaning that it's a demon who's possessed a body, but unlike Anders it would be fully in control. I'd think it'd be much more interesting, though less likely, that we'd get one with it's own physical form.

I can see a lot of reasons why they wouldn't want to do that, but still. I do think it'd be quite interesting. What do you guys think? --NinjaChocobo925 (talk) 19:47, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

I want no demon, no abomination and no spirit as a companion. I don't need those fiends in my team to clean Thedas from them. (talk) 20:24, September 16, 2013 (UTC)StubbornMageSlayer

  • Wouldn't a demon have useful knowledge on what kills demons though? Seems to me if killing demons is your goal an insider's opinion would be helpful. --NinjaChocobo925 (talk) 20:41, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
I don't need informations from demon to kill a demon, traitor of own kind is not trust worthy and I have no guarantee, if those informations aren't any trap. If any demon offers me help, I reject it and slay it. No trust for demons and no trust for traitors. (talk) 22:05, September 16, 2013 (UTC)StubbornMageSlayer
The problem is that requires a demon willing to kill it's own brethren, something that only happens between spirits and demons, not demons and demons. The only character I can see being even vaguely demon like and plausible would be Cole from Asunder. Aleksandr the Great (talk) 21:02, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
I don't think it'd be too much of a stretch for a demon to mind killing other demons. I find it a bit odd to believe that a creature that does the sort of things demons are known to do would draw the line at killing other demons. Maybe he's just using the Inquisitor? Helping him kill other demons so the Inquisitor will help him, willingly or through ignorance, for some other dark deed. Or maybe this demon is just an odd duck. Maybe he doesn't want the demons, or whatever is causing the trouble in Inquisition, killing all the humans because they're useful to it? There's lots of reasons they could come up with for a demon to want to help out. --NinjaChocobo925 (talk) 21:19, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
I on other hand don't want Cole in team, I want to destroy him, because killing him is no longer possible. (talk) 22:05, September 16, 2013 (UTC)StubbornMageSlayer
You have a very close-minded and narrow view of the fictional world of Thedas anon...It's that kind of half arsed thinking that got us into this mage templar war....

To the point! That would be rather interesting to have a full demon or possessed party member, what if it took the slot of "Player's pet" and was a possessed cat like Kitty. Thoughtful insight on demon slaying from a talking possessed cat! Warden Mage: Ferris (talk) 23:10, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

Speak for yourself. Cole is a freak of nature with no right to exist, a dead, who refuses to stay dead. One, who died is dead and he's too greedy and too arrogant to accept it, so he took lives of others to sustain his pathetic self in the world of living. He deserves nothinfg but destruction. Destruction to all demons, they have no right to be in world of living. I'll be satisfied like hell by chopping Cole in Fade. (talk) 06:16, September 17, 2013 (UTC)StubbornMageSlayer
Did you even read Asunder? Based on what you just said it doesn't sound like you did. Sounds like you have a lot more in common with demons then you'd like to believe...Warden Mage: Ferris (talk) 07:56, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
Don't insult me by comparing me to those fiends. I have flesh and bones, when demons don't. I read DA:Asunder and I want Cole to be destroyed. I say destroyed because you can't kill a demon. (talk) 08:01, September 17, 2013 (UTC)StubbornMageSlayer
anon, I have a number here for a great therapist, I'm sure if we all work together we can find the root of your hyperemotional state.

I'm all for a Desire demon companion who is literally a demon corporealized but who shapeshifts into human form to maintain pretense. Even better if she constantly tries to seduce you with promises of power which you can accept for her loyalty or you can deny tactfully with her discovering something akin to humanity and realizing that you have 'seduced' her into true loyalty with the purity of your convictions. Even better if she's flirtatious to both genders but only women can truly bond with her more deeply in a sensual sense. (talk) 14:40, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

Demon are genderless and such companion could be for Vivienne as companion like Loghain for Loghain or Anders for Sebastian. (talk) 14:56, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

It could be a good way to put a more open-ended twist on the game. If you follow a generally constructive path you get someone with connections to spirits or an actual spirit; on a destructive path, you gain a demon or demonic worshipper or whatever. Didn't they say they wanted personal choice to be part of it? --MadHatter121 (talk) 23:54, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

I like the idea. A full demon companion would have to be one of the more advanced types, such as desire or pride, that can actually restrain themselves. And they would of course only stick with the party so long as they could get something out of it. Would make for an interesting companion up until the inevitable backstab, especially seeing how pious and just generally demon-fearing party members may react to it. Like how Alistair was apprehensive about bringing a living stone war machine or an assassin into the group, but times a million. (talk) 04:33, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure about this, it was ok with Justice in DA: Awakening since he was kind to people and the expansion was short enough that he was only accused of being evil by Kristoff's wife, something that a lot of people (and some templars and priests) would see him as, and not give him a chance to explain. If a Demon (probably desire/pride) possessed a dead body, he/she/it (do they technically have genders?) would be...more noticeable, y'know? especially when the game's much longer. I also think negotiating with any religious groups (Chantry, Qunari) with it nearby would only work in Tevinter areas. On the other hand, I imagine it would have fun dialogues with companions (Varric could tell stories of Anders and Justice, seriously, a mess up like that, hilarious to demons) and it would probably offer deals all the time, that could even be how it joins you. I also think it will want Mages to win the war, it's good for demons, although, with the Tear in the Veil, maybe not necessary. Welshman15 (talk) 12:45, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

Demons have no gender, even desire demon, it looks like it looks because it's shape is based on sexual desires of humanoid males. (talk) 14:19, September 17, 2013 (UTC)StubbornMageSlayer
