Aveline looks like a woman on steroids and Isabella is not my type, damn it. I hope there is another one...if not then what a letdown. Even female Hawye is a tomboy( I know I can edit Hawke...but it shows the unattractiveness of the women of the party!.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

I must agree that I don't like what the have done with Isabella since Origins, but she is the best so far, is Merril (I think thats her nam) a possible companion cause she is not bad. And there is nothing wrong really with femHawke. Aveline though... she has a manlier jaw than me! Desmond Cousland (talk) 12:23, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

With Isabela, I'm sure the devs thought people will be focusing on other places than her face...I mean her model is quite nicely made....not at the face though. IP no. (talk) 12:44, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

It's largely just you. Bastian964 12:45, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

I don't like what they've done much, improve the graphics sure and make few changes but it's like they've ignored everything from origins what Isabella looked like (face wise) and Merril looks like someone from an anime turned 3D —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

Can we please just stop judging them based on the few seconds of time we've seen them. We've only seen Isabella for 30 seconds top, and don't even get me started on the Merril reveal.--TheGreyestWarden (talk) 13:49, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Aveline seems hot to me. I like strong women. The problem with Isabella is that she is... cross-eyed or something similar. DERP —Preceding unsigned comment added by Akanthar (talkcontribs)

Aveline is not as bas as the OP is makin her out to be but she doesn't look as good as Isabella facially or not. On second thoughts I quite like Isabela. Desmond Cousland (talk) 14:41, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

I think the woman of the game are hot, special female Hawke, so don`t mess with her, she`s my favorite so far. Is time to show a woman more than just a fragile creature. Aveline looks like a badass to me and i love her. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Karlosj1012 (talkcontribs)

I think Bethany looks pretty, thought I know she will change based on the main Hawke, she is however not the most obvious romance choice(Lesbians and sisters that would be different). Isabella also looks pretty and I don't care that she looks different in DAO. Bethany and Isabella could be my replacements for Morrigan and Leliana. Merrill is ok, though I don't like the tattoos and I agree she somewhat looks like anime and thats not positive. Aveline looks like a train wreck. --PeterR (talk) 15:07, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

They are not an upgrade over Morrigan, or Leliana (depending on where she is standing, lighting etc. She was a two face in game IMO but ridiculously cute/sexy in the trailer) that's for sure. Isabella, given we know she's kind of a freak already will probably merit an initial go, she looks okay. She's supposed to be the holy crap, look at her! girl, but she has nothing on Morrigan and the witch's outfit, which contributed greatly to Sadly, it seems Bethany is the hottest. Not going there. The elf is a MAJOR disappointment based on the picture. She looks 12, maybe. The other one, Aveline, no. You need a crocodile dundee check on her first. The graphics overall may be an upgrade, so I've heard, but the characters don't seem to be much of one really. So far. It's early. The game itself could change this. We'll see. The Grey Unknown (talk) 16:13, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

I agree with PeterR that Bethany looks beautiful, but she is Hawke's sister, so off-limits for me. And the default female Hawke looks quite hot too. Aveline looks like what she is, a true warrior. but she's indeed a bit too manly in my eyes. But Bioware may suprise us (remember the difference between the sacred ashes and the in-game Leliana?). PsychoW (talk) 17:18, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, I forgot about Bethany but on saying that, what is Thedas' views on incest? I don't know. Either way that wouldn't fly by me. Desmond Cousland (talk) 17:47, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I'm going to assume you're new to the Wikia and forum. Anyway, never mind Thedas' views on incest, the devs have strongly rejected any notion of incest, telling people to keep their disgusting fantasies to themselves. IanFTW (talk) 20:18, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

OK, just to get this in. Isabela, hot as hell. Merrill, cute in an innocent sort of way. Aveline, I'll admit is not drop dead gorgeous, but she's easy enough on the eyes. There seems to be a gap in the standards of beauty between some of us... FreeMarcher930 (talk) 20:13, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Well I don't like tough women, I like unrealistic women that are too cute to be warriors.. this game is...well too realistic XD!...aveline as I said in my original post looks like a police woman/prison warden/military/bodybuilder... Isabela well I guess she is okay but I don't find her attractive... Bethany is hot but I wasn't talking about her because you can't romance her ( Ohh I would like to). you can romance the little elf lass?...Well someone need to update the dragon age 2 section because half of the possibly romances are not marked as such. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

i just wanna say Aveline is surposed to look manly. PinkOldShoes (talk) 21:12, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

I honostly don't get what everyone's problem with merrill is I personly think she is the best looking so far. and as far as Aveline goes she is a warrior what do expect a warrior to look like. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

Look around ostagar and many female warriors in Dao, They have cute faces and even makeup... haha!. In my opinion Merril is cute and I didn't knew she was a potential lover when I started the topic...but as you say she is the best so far. Aveline well... she is a realistic female warrior. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

Just a clarification...Merill is not "confirmed" as a romance option yet. During the "Dev Diary Story Trailer", she is shown as the "virginal girl next door", compared to Isabela's "crazy up-against-wall" girl. So I'm working off that assumption. FreeMarcher930 (talk) 02:00, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

I honestly don't see what the problem is with Isabela. She looks way better in Dragon Age II than in Origins. Unless there's some screen shot I haven't seen where she's hideous, her appearance is vastly improved. I think you guys just need to get over the fact that you're not going to be able to screw Morrigan in Dragon Age II. DrBeeblebrox (talk) 02:19, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Old Isabella's face on new Isabella's body... (talk) 10:52, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

so far Isabella is quite good. i bet shes going to show Hawke a good time.JJjoinut999 (talk) 19:51, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Has anyone noticed that the women in DA2 are OVERLY busty. I mean seriously. With Isabella it's obvious, but after playing the demo I was like WOAH. Bethany, Hawke, Isabella, even Merrill. I liked DAO better in that it was a little more realistic, now they're just turning the female characters into fan-boy-fetishes. I guess it's great for the men that play this game, but as a lady... It's weird. Montana 222 (talk) 15:39, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

You forgot Mama Hawke. Even she's got a little too much. I wouldn't say that this is exclusively the case for DA 2, though, because Leliana, Morrigan, even Wynne, had quite the bust. Obviously there are no human females that aren't quite that... developed. As for the topic of this thread: I actually like the variety they tried to bring into DA 2. Aveline is a warrior and looks the part while Merrill is a sweet little doll and Isabela a seductress who knows exactly that she's attractive. Ghilan'nain, February 24, 2011, 15:49 (UTC)

It's just you, methinks. I personally don't mind it. Diwaldor (talk) 16:51, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

It isn't just her :P The first thing that popped into my head when all 3 family members of Hawke's entourage were standing there arguing was Holy Boobs Batman. Yes there were chests in the first game but NOT to the extent of being bloody distracting. Its a bit much here. Its like they tried to take the top 3 male oriented things and toss it in the game: Ninjas (Rogue's fighting style), & Pirates (Isabela) and boobs.Vhardamis (talk) 17:01, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

We could just write the boobege off as a result of varric telling the story... but yeh I think the line should have been drawn sometime before Flemeth's clevage. --Tedder12 (talk) 17:14, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Don't worry, it's just you! And I really get sick of the whole *well, that's how Varric sees the darkspawn, it's not how they actually look!* No, that's how Bioware has decided they look. Varric's elaborations are to the story itself, not the appearances. And, going back to the female characters, I really think Aveline should have been female only. Tivadar (talk) 17:26, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Well, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. And I personally behold beauty in my eyes ;) I think Isabela is quite beautiful. I love her dark skinned exotic look, nice contrast to the paleness of previous women in the game. Merrill is very cute, but so far from what I have seen, she looks a little too young. I hope I am proven wrong. Cassandra(sp?) has a gorgeous pair of smokey eyes. Aveline reminds me of a lioness for some reason. And the main pre-set for FemHawke is HOT! Gotta love a girl with pale skin, ice blue eyes, and raven black hair. Such a ravishing combination. PurpleNurplex0x (talk) 18:06, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Howabout we judge them by they're personalities? Now there is a novel idea! *eyeroll* Oh Aveline isn't romancable :(. --D.Solstice (talk) 18:05, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure i'd go for Isabela in DA2, Morrigans "evilness" was combatted by the fact she is cute as hell and sounds like that girl from farscape ;). I quite like Bethany, but A: she's my sister and B: i'm gonna play mage. --Tyr Aeducan (talk) 18:16, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

@Tyr Aeducan: Claudia Black portrays Aeryn Sun in Farscape and voices Morrigan in DA:O. ---

I know, hence the wink =) --Tyr Aeducan (talk) 18:53, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

And to whoever it was above who said that Merrill was not confirmed as a romance option ... erm no. I am pretty sure they confirmed her. Along with Anders, Fenris, and Isabela. PurpleNurplex0x (talk) 18:31, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Not to sound like a total jerk, but it is far too soon to tell who is hot or not, aside from the demo there has not been a whole lot of images at all. But as far as looks go: Bethany is alright, but she is Hawke's sister so that is a no go, Isabella is not ment to have the focus placed on her face.... but more south of that, Merrill is kinda dainty but not unatractive, and Aveline has that strong macho look. But they arn't ugly by any means.-- C2 / CC 18:31, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

You ain't supposed to romance Aveline around.She's the kind of woman that watches your back and drags you back home after you drink yourself dead in the local bar.And Merill is cute.Nuff said.--Lesk Amell (talk) 18:33, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

When I first saw a screen shot of Isabella, I thought her face was terrible. Having just played the demo, I've changed my mind. She doesn't look half bad. Aveline, yes, looks horrible. But as far as I know she's not a romance option.FiendtheWhacked (talk) 19:06, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Well, as for my opnion, I think the women are okay. Bethany is very, very pretty (I love how Varric completly exagerrates her breats at the start of the demo), not in an incest/lesbian way, but she's the only decent one I have seen (excluding fem!Hawke). Isabela is... I just couldn't stop staring at her chest 'cuz it intimidated me. Merrill looks a bit weird but still cool. Don't know where you guys got the idea of her being from an anime. Default fem!Hawke is soooooooo pretty... I love her short hair, but her VO kinda doesn't suit her, but I'll get used to it when I get my sneaky hands on a copy of the game. —Rocketai (Ho there!
