Sera's Disposition

The player can tell generally how Sera 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 (-30 to -75):
Sera will greet the Inquisitor with "Piss up a rope." or "Frigging what? or "What, then?"
Sera will bid the Inquisitor farewell with "Go on."
Cold (-5 to -29):
Sera will greet the Inquisitor with "Uh-huh?" or "Well, you're here." or "Something you want?"
Sera will bid the Inquisitor farewell with "Go on."
Neutral (-5 to 34):
Sera will greet the Inquisitor in one of the following ways:
  • "Sitting and waiting. Great, yeah?"
  • "Her Gracious Ladybits." (female Inquisitor only)
  • "Ser Lordybloomers." (male Inquisitor only)
  • "Your wish is something something."
  • Hey, it's you again.
Sera will bid the Inquisitor farewell with "Go on."
Warm/Friendly (35 to 125):
Sera may use one of the "Neutral" set of greetings, but is more likely to use one of the following:
  • "Can't wait, what's on?"
  • "Back, yeah? Always good."
  • "Love seeing you, yeah?"
  • "There's you, yes?"
Sera will bid the Inquisitor farewell with "Go on."


I thought it'd be bigger.

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

Another reason the templars and mages need to be sat down.
