'So I was thinking. In the end of DA 2 it says that Hawke's name becomes either a rally cry for mages every where or a symbol of fear. And it never says that he died.... Maybe he could become a companion. Additionally Hawke would/could become a very interesting companion especially with Varric. --Natethegreat2 (talk) 12:35, April 27, 2014 (UTC)'

No, no, no you are confused Hawke is Kirkwall's errant boy/girl... Emilia Da'len (talk) 15:01, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

Narrative wise, I can certainly see the argument for that. In terms of likelyhood? Not a chance. - (talk) 12:44, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

The Warden from DAO could be a companion in DAI, it may be unlikely given all different variables to the Warden's different origins and writing all the different backstorys will be a nightmare BlackDragon666 (talk) 12:33, May 17, 2014 (UTC)

No the Warden will not be a companion. I get where you're coming from. We've got ourselves a Warden companion, and back on topic, nah, what's the point of having a previous hero as a companion, if they made a game with a co-protagonist, then fine, but this is way too out. Hawke as a narrator or him making a cameo or an important appearance seems more likely.Lazare326 (talk) 15:29, May 17, 2014 (UTC)

No way. A former main character who becomes a companion for another hero? It's impossible. Moreover, Hawke will probably reappear with the Warden, in a harem where they only serve their mistress Flemeth. --Turuzzusapatuttu (talk) 15:23, May 17, 2014 (UTC)

It's usually a major step backwards for a character to go from a leader to a follower. Now in fairness, Hawke did have very little agency in DA2. S/he was always reacting to events instead of instigating them, making Hawke sadly very much a passenger in his/her own story. Becoming a companion to the Inquisitor wouldn't change much about them. From a technical standpoint, it's not that difficult at all. And it's been done before, in other stories. Like how in Metal Gear Solid 2, Snake became a supporting character to Raiden. Thing is, in that instance, Snake didn't let Raiden give him orders and continued to pursue his own agenda, thus preserving his power, narrative significance and dignity. Letting the Inquisitor be able to give Hawke orders is just plain sad. Nobody wants to see a hero demoted to a sidekick. 16:46, May 17, 2014 (UTC)

I'm fairly certain the Warden and Hawke will only be cameo appearances maybe once or twice in the game. 20:36, May 19, 2014 (UTC)
