Bad things should happen to bad people. We find someone not so bad, maybe he'll end up not so dead.


Sera is an elven archer and companion in Dragon Age: Inquisition. She is a potential romance option for a female Inquisitor.

Background

Sera is impulsive and reactionary, taking delight in humbling the established authority she views as arrogant and selfish. For her, it's not about what's right, it's about what's right now. She sees actions taken for the 'greater good' as just an excuse to hurt others who don't deserve it simply because it's easier. She was a member of the enigmatic group of rogues known as the Friends of Red Jenny, yet the coming of the Breach terrified her.[1] Fortunately, Sera and her "friends" can be frightening, too, and if she needs to put an arrow through some baddies so regular people can sleep at night, so be it. Sera fights for those caught in the middle, but she also needs order restored. The world has to be normal so she can play.

Sera was orphaned as a child and raised by humans, thus cementing a distinctly non-elven point of view and a disregard for elven culture in general.[2]

Involvement

Dragon Age: Inquisition


This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Inquisition.


After the Inquisitor meets with the Chantry and templars, an arrow with a message attached lands nearby, giving the locations of three satchels with instructions. Should the Inquisitor choose to follow these clues, resulting in confronting an Orlesian nobleman, who assumes that the Inquisition was targeting him. Then suddenly, Sera reveals herself and executes the noble with an arrow. She then introduces herself to the Inquisitor and offers to join the Inquisition to fight for those stuck in the middle of the chaos.

Sera proves a very childish character, believing that conflicts in the world should be simple, that mages and templars should be "sat down" and told to stop fighting. She also voices her dislike for authority figures like Empress Celene, Grand Duke Gaspard and Briala for fighting while innocent people are endangered.
