|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Flemeth article.|
Unnamed topic #1 Edit
"Kate Mulgrew has said of Flemeth that, "she has produced many daughters. And she can become her daughters. So she uses her daughters. Her daughters are really there to serve her more diabolical needs" - Is this text should be in "Involvement" section? It is more likely this text should available in "Trivia" section. Because inside "Involvement" we give information to the characters involvement to the story of this game. --Snfonseka
The content of the "Involvement" has moved into the "Trivia" --Snfonseka
Death animation Edit
Not tested on Flemeth yet, but When I got the death animation on the High Dragon (at the top of the Cult of the Dragon area) the animation sounds like it was the same as the 2H sword animation. Very nice though.
I can confirm for you that it is exactly the same. Just got the death animation for Flemeth, but it will only occur if Flemeth and the High Dragon are killed by melee attacks. Hope this helps. --MiyuEmi 12:31, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
I must admit, it's a pretty epic way to kill of Flemeth I remember getting that death animation and just being in awe of the whole battle! - Drakeling
Finding Flemeth Edit
This is regarding the note about not being able to find Flemeth after the Landsmeet. I just got done finding the Urn of Ashes, gave them to the Arl and am not able to find Flemeth at her hut. These are events prior the Landsmeet (I'm fairly sure at least) because the Arl just mentioned the Landsmeet after I cured him of his sickness. So the Landsmeet hasn't happened yet. Also, I went to Flemeth's hut a while before I got the quest to kill Flemeth and hadn't seen her there either. I believe the last time I checked her Hut was just after the battle at Redcliffe village (before entering the castle). Can anyone else confirm this? Can Flemeth be found somewhere other than her hut now?
Finding Flemeth and Strategy Edit
Be aware, if you take Morrigan with you, you will not find Flemeth in their hut.
The best strategy is probably to bring your arcane warrior tank along and he doesn't needs a high constitution at all. If you don't play a mage there is the problem that only Wynne can be this tank, but with armor above 60 and all resistances at 75% it should also work without a healer. It was almost a piece of cake for me on the hard difficulty level with Wynne doing the healing. (Got the death animation as well with my pretty elven mage maiden tank.)
Flemeth an Old God? Edit
She supposedly is an abomination yet Morrigan seems to deny this, and the fact that she teaches Morrigan the ritual to trap the essence of the old god (optional ending) makes me wonder about this. My thoughts where that when you supposedly kill Flemeth she is said to not be dead and will eventually find another host to live within (much like what happens to an archdemon unless killed by a grey warden)So would taking the essence of the old god into the child make Morrigan like Flemeth? or would it create a new child to match Flemeth. Also when you fight Flemeth she shapeshifts into a high dragon that could easily be an old god...Just food for thought
Also, I wanted to add something else, if you talk to Liliana, she talks about the story of Flemeth and how she was said to have been known for having an unearthly type of BEAUTY. If you look in a pile of books during the Urn Ashes mission you will find a codex about Old Gods and it says that 4 of the 7 Old Gods died after being killed when reincarnated as a Arch-Demon. ONE of the Old Gods that DID NOT come back as an Arch-Demon is Urthemiel (The Old God of BEAUTY!).
So, is Flemeth the Old God Urthemiel?
- Nope. Urthemiel is the Archdemon for the Blight you stop during the events of DA:O. So if you did the Dark Ritual, Morrigan's offspring would technically be Urthemiel, and not Flemeth. Jake200493 (talk) 11:45, August 29, 2010 (UTC)
- My personal pet theory has always been that Flemeth is the precursor to Morrigan's child. The spirit of an Archdemon reborn as a human. So in other words one of the four old gods "killed" (or believed to be killed) prior to the Blight in Origins. I mean she had to have gotten that ritual from SOMEWHERE. And another reborn Old God would make for a powerful ally as far as Flemeth is concerned, I think. Plus she's an apostate who hates the Chantry. Hating the chantry is pretty much the Old God's entire identity. --Aldrius (talk) 07:25, September 11, 2010 (UTC)
- Flemeth actually is an old god, notice her "horns" in the concept art, they are identical to the ones of the blood dragon of dragon age 2 (which can't be a high dragon, it is far more impressive)... and seeing how the blood dragon of dragon age 1 turned out to be Uthremiel, the old god of beauty, she probably is another old god freed from the taint.
- Although that is a well-thought out comparison, Flemeth's "new" dragon form seems to be far less spiky than Urthemiel, the Old God from DA:O. The horns also curve out, while the Archdemon's horns were straight. This may just be a stylistic sort of thing, but we'll just have to wait and see what happens in DAII. Arctistor23 (talk) 01:39, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Flemeth may or may not be an Old God, but the appearance of her horns in her dragon form is by no means any kind of proof. They are unique just to let you distinguish easily between a "normal" high dragon and her shapeshifted form. Or if you prefer you could say her achieving a high dragon form thanks to her superior knowledge in the shapechanger mage specialization imprinted on her transformed body part of her strong personality, leaving her dragon form unique.
- Another thing that points towards Flemeth being an Old God (possibly either Razikale or Lusacan) is the fact that the soul of an Archdemon is able to transfer to the nearest tainted creature (darkspawn or warden) on death. Afterwards, the creature's flesh eventually is twisted and warped back into the Archdemon's dragon form. Therefore, we see that the Old Gods are able to transfer their souls into new bodies and transform those bodies into dragons, which are also properties demonstrated by or attributed to Flemeth. Coincidence? Also, dragons having a human form or the ability to shapeshift is seemingly a fantasy staple (D&D, WoW, etc.)
- Who's to say Flemeth isn't an Old God? She has lived many lifetimes and is able to transfer her soul to a new body. Plus, she hints around to Hawke that she could be a dragon and not really human, "Where did you learn to turn into a dragon? Perhappes I am a dragon."
- When you think about it flemeth could be an archdeamon in DA:O her hut has no darkspawn arond it, it has no taint and it isnt cold and gloomie like return to ostargar but in witch hunt when you walk back outside flemeths hut there are darkspawn everywhere iver protecting the house or could pick up on the GW taint. if none of that is true I beleave shes andraste sister even though she was in soul at the urn of sacred ashes flemeth does have multiple lives and souls or flemeth is not flemeth she doesnt take bodies but knows alot of magic it could be that each daughtur has just used the name for centuries--Droidsurvivur (talk) 00:56, December 8, 2011 (UTC)
- I was thinking along the same lines has alot of you when it hit me like a punch to the face. Morigan states that flemeth is from neither the dragon age world or the fade but one in the middle. The elves of Arlathan used Eluvians to travel through their kingdom, the tevinter tryed to do this but corrupted them or destroyed them. The chantry states it was the tevinter that brought the darkspawn. The Eluvians are tainted with the darkspawn curse. The tevinter also believed in the 7 gods which were hidden underground. Eluvians were hidden underground to hide them from the tevinter. Now with all this i started to think Flemeth had many daughters which she controls and states that bodys are limiting things. Flemeth new how to save a greywarden with the ritual. Flemeth also says that morigan isnt really her daughter. flemeth transforms into a dragon which she states no mage can do. Now the archdemon from orgins started in ferelden because of the architech. i think that flemeth is the mother of the 7 gods and that the golden city is flemeths home. May 31 2012 morens9
- Also, I do remember Morrigan saying that Flemeth is more closely connected to the Blight than anyone else thought. Conlusion; She's most definitley an Old God, or some other very important deity. While I don't think she's Urthemiel I believe she designed the ritual which perhaps could clean Urthemiels' soul of the taint. --184.108.40.206 (talk) 13:48, November 7, 2014 (UTC)
Easy strategy Edit
All I needed was a tank speced Shale (Stoneheart/Stone Aura) with a Large Clear Fire Crystal (bought at the gem shop in Orzammar), Wynne and my 2 Rogues equipped with Short bows. Set the party on hold, adjusted Wynne's tactics to only heal Shale and regenerate herself. When the fight started, I moved my rogues and healer away from the dragon and sent Shale in to Stone Roar+Taunt Flemeth. After that I pulled Shale back out of her melee range, activated Stone Aura and made sure that my rogues are within the aura's effect while Wynne was healing Shale without ever getting low on mana. Picture of the fight: If Shale takes too much damage you can also get out of Stone Aura and use a heal potion and use Stoneheart till the aura is ready again - just be aware that Flemeth likes to pull in Shale the second he gets out of his frozen state.
- Edit: Just noticed that Wynne can't cast Rejuvenate on herself, so disregard that tactic setting.
Pride Demon? Edit
I believe she admits to being an abomination to a sort. Giving her appearance and her backstory, I would say it would be a Pride Demon, which would explain how she keeps her normal form. It does say that it's a symbiotic relationship, so that might also be the reason why she maintains her appearance and her own personality, unlike Uldred.It's likely that because of her power she can probably enter back into The Fade after death, which could explain how she can survive being "killed," and then possess someone.Berychance 02:06, January 20, 2010 (UTC)
Stolen Throne Edit
Flemeth is in Stolen Throne for a chapter, should this be added somewhere to this page? She tells Maric a prophecy, that there will be a new Blight and that Loghain will betray him. Jancola c (talk) 00:02, June 16, 2010 (UTC)
Things Flemeth Says Edit
Either I am the first to notice it, or nobody has any idea to what she is referencing to. But in the 1996 movie adaptation of "The Crucible" several "witches" are seen dancing under the moonlight (most of them naked). I can't remember if this was in the play or earlier movies too (though most likely without nudity back then), but I have seen no other mention of it. In any case, FLemeth comments in the beginning about how Morrigan does like to dance under the moon (prefereable naked??? One can only hope). Does this mean that Morrigan and Flemeth are truly witches?!? Only time will tell... XD
Dragon Age 2 Edit
I just read in my new issue of game informer with dragon age 2 that she appears in her dragon form during a darkspawn battle with hawke. Anyone think she is the concept art of the women with the horns and the staff and may be a possible party member?
- It's pretty strongly implied in the issue that the dragon and white-haired woman in the initial pieces of concept art are Flemeth. The dragon is seen a screenshot with a caption about how Hawke encounters Flemeth in dragon-form as she attacks Darkspawn. The dragon's horn and claws are exactly the same as the white-haired woman's crown and gauntlets. -- Commdor (Talk) 21:32, July 16, 2010 (UTC)
http://gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2010/07/16/exclusive-dragon-age-ii-desktop-wallpapers.aspx confirmed, you can go ahead and put it. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:16, July 17, 2010 (UTC) Oh BTW, just click over the picture for the proof. --18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:43, July 17, 2010 (UTC)
- Hmm, interesting. That wallpaper is named "yyyDA2_Flemeth_1920x1280.jpg". Looks like she got a new body. Polymer (talk) 00:51, July 17, 2010 (UTC)
So...Does this mean Flemeth's death isn't canon? And how far along is this Flemeth? Is this before she rescues the Warden? Or has she taken over a new body many years later? Time paradoxes abound! 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:29, July 25, 2010 (UTC)
Is her "death" in Dragon Age canon? How do you think it will play out?
We cannot use the word "canon" for Dragon Age: there are so many possible outcomes that it wouldn't be fair to choose just one. I know that, for instance, Alistair is the king if you star to play as an orlesian in Awakening, but that was just necessary to develop the game. Anyway, I think that if Flemeth appears in DA 2, is because she has some kind of connection with Hawke... maybe she makes a deal with a woman escaping from Lotheing with Hawke... --Akanthar (talk) 21:32, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
Also, we must take into account that the Warden kills only one of Flemeth's forms. Remember her talking about "music" and "dance" and "games"? The dragon could be just one gigantic spell as far as we know. Not even Morrigan believes that Flemeth is truly dead. So, no, I'm not surprised to see her in DA:2. She looks ready to go 16 rounds against anything. And a bit hot too. Dairydian (talk) 23:41, August 27, 2010 (UTC)
A "Qunari female shaman"? No... I don't think do. In the screenshots, it doesn't show her grey or anything, and how she possessed another body if in the events of Lothering being attacked, the Warden wouldn't have killed her? And how a female qunari is shaman? Didn't you heard Sten saying that "women are priests, artisans, farmers or shopkeepers"? And to answer another person's question... I don't think it's "cannon" her death, but remember Morrigan saying that she wasn't sure if Flemeth could really be killed so she was preparing herself if the Witch decides to hunt her down. Flemeth may be more powerful then we think or what we were expecting. I just hope DA2 will have answers. --Rocketai (talk) 16:58, August 30, 2010 (UTC)
This scene takes place in Lothering, which gets invaded shortly after the Warden leaves it, so Flemeth is still alive at this point since she is only "killable" after you do at least one quest(The Circle of Magi), I fully expect the consequences of Flemeth getting "killed" by the Warden to have some influence in DA2. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:30, September 1, 2010 (UTC)Anon
About "canon" stuff, we already know that if you import a saved game, the choices you made in Origins, Awakening, and the DLC will all be included (after all, that's why they are fixing Witch Hunt to save AFTER the ending, since it matters). So, while there may be set situations and such for totally new games, I still wouldn't call that "canon" as I don't think the game itself is meant to have a true "canon" story, it's up to us how we play the game, isn't that the whole point? AbsolutGrndZer0 (talk) 11:47, September 11, 2010 (UTC)
in my opinion Edit
Cleanup for "Story" section Edit
The whole section is a verbatim of BioWare's wiki page on Flemeth. I'm unsure if a complete removal is best, or if it could be included but not at its current state. A link to BioWare's page in the "External links" section works best imo. I think it breaks the tone of the article. --D. (talk · contr) 04:36, October 9, 2010 (UTC)
Witch Hunt credits image Edit
"Rise to Power" Image Edit
I really liked this image of Flemeth, and it also makes for nice wallpaper. When I put it into the page it looked fine in the preview, however, its position is different when I view the page. In short, if someone more skilled than me can find a better fit for it, be my guest- and accept my thanks. LVTDUDE (talk) 22:54, October 27, 2010 (UTC)
My theory as to who Flemeth truly is Edit
It's a strange theory, and I'll do some deep thinking to see if I can explain some things, but what if Flemeth is The Maker? I thought of this after reading how she told Maric a Blight would come after his death. Gods are supposed to be all-knowing right? So it would make some sense, though why she would need a human host is beyond me, but like I said I'm going to do some thinking about it. Lying Memories (talk) 02:04, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
What happens in dragon age 2 if you killed flemeth in Origins. HMMMM...would morrigan replace her character
- Yea she's definitely not a person to die easily. I just can't figure out though if she's on the side of the good guys, the bad guys, or her own side looking to see how the world unfolds where she knows who will change the world and shows them the direction they need to go, but leaves the actual path to them. Lying Memories (talk) 11:52, February 5, 2011 (UTC)
When Morrigan gives you the quest to kill Flemeth, she says then that she will not truly die, but it will take some time for her to find another host body. Darth Mondrak (talk) 12:23, February 5, 2011 (UTC)
- Well I already knew that, and the person who posted under me and forgot to sign now knows that. Flemeth is definitely one of the most hard to read characters of a story I've ever met. I like that. It makes it all the more interesting. Then again, that's Bioware for ya. Lying Memories (talk) 22:15, February 12, 2011 (UTC)
She is definitely one of the most hard to read characters, as well as being one of the most intersting, if not THE MOST interesting of the Dragon Age characters. Arctistor23 (talk) 22:30, February 12, 2011 (UTC)
Amulet delivery Edit
I hope delivering that amulet is optional because im starting to think it has something to do with a new possesion ceremony she prepares just in case Morrigan betrays her (which can happen)Thoughts?
Flemeth page quote Edit
I believe that we should change the Flemeth quote at the top of the page to "We stand upon the precipice of change. The world fears the inevitable plummet into the abyss. Watch for that moment...and when it comes, do not hesitate to leap. It is only when you fall that you learn whether you can fly" Thoughts? Arctistor23 (talk) 23:45, March 13, 2011 (UTC)
Another quote Edit
How 'bout adding another quote, one that I cannot repeat verbatim, but think goes something like this: "The road is darker when you walk it blindfolded." Very excellent quote.
Grey Warden Edit
Not an editor but I disagree greatly with "As Varric tells Cassandra about Flemeth's involvement, a reference to the Warden is made as well, indicating that Varric knows Flemeth sent Morrigan with the Warden." What Varric does say is something along the lines of "Do I need to recite the tale of the warden as well?" in reference to Cassandra calling it absurd that there was a witch of the wild who could become a dragon. What I see this as is a mention that the warden's legend has become greatly widespread. Whether Varric knows of Morrigan is quite a large jump to presume. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 07:15, March 16, 2011 (UTC)
I thought the quote was referencing the fact that the warden is saved by Flemeth in her dragon form?
Killed in Origins, Reborn in DA:2 Edit
Reading the page, it suggest Flemeth (possibly) dies at the hand of The Warden, and later on is reborn with the ritual performed by Merill, from the amulet Hawke brought.
This is possibly true, but it is not what I believed at first.. This is what I thought,
Like she had said, she can exist in more places than one, I assume it as there really be multiple 'Flemeths' running around in the world. And The Warden had only killed one of the 'Flemeths' and the Flemeth Hawke met was one and the same he 'summons' out of the Amulet.
I am not sure what to believe, the conclusion on the 'Flemeth' page sure is more believable at first. But listening to what Flemeth tells Hawke at 'resurrection': 'A bit of security, should the inevitable occur. And if I know my Morrigan, it already has.' This made me believe there were multiple Flemeths, as according to me, this one isn't sure if Morrigan had already 'killed' another part of her. Meaning she was not really 'reborn'.
Just a theory, maybe somebody should ask what the exact story with the amulet and her death in Origins really is at the Bioware forums, since some of the writers check the forums...
- You are making a theory of something that is very clear and needs no theory (unlike, for example, the true nature of Flemeth for which we can speculate but not yet know). You see, the early events in DA2 occour during the events in DAO (or very shortly after). In particular, all flemeth events happen as the events of DAO happen, and in chronological order.
- So this is what happened:
- After helping the warden and sending morrigan off, but before she is killed, Flemeth asks hawke to get the amulet to sundermount, in forebonding that morrigan would get her killed soon.
- She is "revived" after she is killed, and comments *clearly* that she knows morrigan was going to do it, hence the need for insurance.
- There are many ambiguities and mysteries in the DA universe, in part because the writters haven't really decided (I mean, the qunari horn retcon is epic retcon of epicness), but this isn't one of them. Clearly Flemeth is much more than meets the eye, but there is only one flemeth, and she has a special relationship with the dalish, that much is clear and unambigous. --~~
- Indeed Flemeth mentions on Sundermount that the amulet contained "a piece of her", which was enough to restore her, and that she had "an appointment" after saving Hawke (probably the second meeting with the Warden, as she is only at her hut when the Warden goes there with the intent to kill her.), and again on Sundermount she mentions that she couldn't have gone there herself as she had that appointment. As a matter of fact, a wiki is never a place for theories... -- Marvin Arnold (talk) 17:18, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Dalish Goddess??? Edit
Everyone talks of Flemeth possibly being an "Old God", but is it possible that she is what remains of one of the elven gods? She refers to Merrill as being "One of the people." After the resurrection of Flemeth in DA2, it's seems clear that she is something that transcends time and space, and the Dalish elves of two different clans have made reference to knowing of her, Merrill's and that elf girl from Witch Hunt (possibly three if you count the clan that brought Maric to her before all of this started). On top of all this, an ELVEN rite for the dead is used on the amulet to resurrect Flemeth.
On top of all that, if this theory IS sound, is it possible that Flemeth was... "summoned" long ago to take vengeance upon the humans for the wrong they made for the elves, and that all of this is part of an overly elaborate plan to bring about the fall of the humans? The last part is a stretch, I know, but I see Flemeth as something older than the "Old Gods" of the Tevinter Imperium (the high-dragons that are turned into arch-demons), but not the Maker... unless the entire development team for DA wants to use a HUGE plot twist in that:
1. Leliana was correct when stating the Maker was still in Thedas... LITERALLY
and 2. That everyone thinks the Maker is a benevolent father-figure... when Flemeth is the complete opposite
Actually the first part does make complete sense, either an Elven Goddess or one of the Forgotten Ones? I'm pretty sure the remaining two Old Gods are male as well (not saying that she can't change her gender, if she's a God then I suppose Flemeth can do whatever she wants), also if she was an awakened Old God surely she could succumb to the taint? The fact that the Dalish revere her in ways, having their own name for her, and as said the elven rite for the departed being needed. If that is the case then it's possible very few Dalish even know who she truly is, what with most of their history being lost, going based on simple tradition. With the knowledge she obviously would have had on Dalish history if this was the case, then it could explain how Morrigan knew how to fix the Eluvian, whereas Merril failed. --184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:19, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
I think Flemeth is Mythal. Just from the dialogue when Merrill prays at the Shrine of Mythal on Sundermount. The same shrine you use to resurrect Flemeth. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:54, November 3, 2011 (UTC)
She could even be one of the "Forgotten Ones" in elven mythology. The gods of evil?
I think it's far more likely that Flemeth is Fen'Harel, the Dread Wolf of elven mythology. Fen'Harel is the trickster god of the elven pantheon, and in many real world religions, trickster gods were able to change their shape at whim, much as Flemeth does. Additionally, Flemeth seems to be fairly neutral on most things, only becoming concerned about things such as the Blight, and even then her aid is only direct on three occasions: giving the Warden treaties back to Alistair and the Warden, saving them from the Tower of Ishal, and saving Aveline and the Hawke family from the darkspawn. On top of that, her actions in Dragon Age 2 indirectly allowed what happened at the end of act 3 (not going to put any spoilers here) to happen. Perhaps her entire goal has something to do with the war that starts. If the Blight hadn't been stopped, Kirkwall would have been forced to focus on that, both sides putting aside their differences. But with the Blight stopped, the unrest was allowed to fester and grow. Again, this is only a theory, but I think it is likely that Flemeth is Fen'Harel, and there's some big plot that's going to be revealed in DA3.
All The Above Edit
I agree. I think Flemeth is, in a sense, an "Old God". She's extremely powerful, able to be in multiple places at once (in her own words), and capable thus of transcending death. It's symbolic as well that she can change from dragon to "human" at will. This indicates that she isn't an abomination or tainted "God", because, as Wynne states, it is the lack of humanity that defines an abomination. I think she's an ancient "God" that predates the Tevinter Imperium and serves as sort of a Watcher. Watching events transpire from afar, interfering in small ways to weave the pattern of fate as she sees fit. But what EVERYONE FAILED TO MENTION. Is that Dragon Age 2 Flemeth is a hottie. :D
"Untouched" image. Edit
- It's the wiki's background image. The other picture is better cropped and is untouched, as in it is the original concept art. ··· d·day! 01:46, May 18, 2012 (UTC)
If the legends told to the Warden by both Leliana and Morrigan are at least partly true, and there was a human mage named Flemeth married to bann of Highever by the name of Conobar, then Flemeth was once an Alamarri.
New Quote Suggestion Edit
I came across a quote of Flemeth's from Dragon Age II, just after Merrill performs the ritual on Flemeth's amulet, that I think both expresses her personality as well as her importance to the world: "I am a fly in the ointment. I am a whisper in the shadows. I am also an old, old woman. More than that you do not need to know."
Personally, I think this quote has more impact than the current quote being used as it is Flemeth speaking of herself rather than speaking prophecy. I'd like to replace that quote with this, unless anyone has any objections. LadyAeducan (talk) 03:06, February 8, 2014 (UTC)
- Agreed. This quote sounds better, too.--18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:30, February 8, 2014 (UTC)
- That's a very nice quote. But we should keep the current one too (in the Quotes paragraph). 07:06, February 13, 2014 (UTC)
Profile Image Edit
Should her DA2 profile picture be reverted to her Origins picture? I think the wiki guidelines say to use an image that is their most prominent game appearance, and Origins is where she is most involved IMO. Requesting a reversal.--22.214.171.124 (talk) 03:27, February 8, 2014 (UTC)
- I too feel her DA:O appearance trumps her appearance in DAII and would like to see a profile image from DA:O used instead. She was a prominent character in DA:O as well as a boss, an appearance that is more significant than her presence in DAII, when she was a quest-giver who appeared mainly in cutscenes. I support a reversal. LadyAeducan (talk) 00:37, February 9, 2014 (UTC)
Sandal and the old woman Edit
"Late in the game, Sandal mentions an old woman with a scary laugh who tells him bad things, which mystifies Bodahn and Hawke. It isn't much of a stretch to speculate that Sandal is referring to Flemeth."
I wonder if this is a speculation, does it have any place in the article? Was just reading through it and that statement caught my eyes, so I thought I'd ask about it. -- 11:32, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
- I'd say the last sentence is speculation and should be removed. I don't know about the actual trivia; I would prefer there were more specifics about what exactly Sandal says, but maybe it's worth keeping minus the speculation. --Kelcat (talk) 21:00, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
- Now that you mention, it could be put in the trivia rather than the DA2 involvement section, and the last sentence could be worded like "it is speculated by many that this woman could be Flemeth" or something like that, as the current one makes me think of "it's so not far fetched that the woman isn't just probably her, she is Flemeth". -- 11:19, May 13, 2014 (UTC)
so she is bound to what remains of an anchinet elven god? This should be interesting?--FossilLord 20:17, November 22, 2014 (UTC)
Still in shock over the whole thing but it seems quite a few of the legends are true in some aspect with the rest vastly different from what we know. Flemeth being Mythal. Solas being the Dread Wolf. Desperately want more information relating to the Elven Pantheon now.--XxBlack SparkxX (talk) 02:37, November 28, 2014 (UTC)
- Do we learn this in Inquisition? If so, it should be under Inquisition and marked as a spoiler. I was kinda ticked when I read that in her background info.
- StillAlive (talk) 21:13, November 29, 2014 (UTC)
Just wanted to thank you guys for this. I never read the spoiler (I never check wikis anymore until I'm caught up), but I remember a similar thing happening to me when I was reading Fullmetal Alchemist. Had a huge argument on the FMA wiki with the idiots who thought a huge, HUGE spoiler was okay to put in the character's info box (like, similar to putting "The Ancient Elven Goddess Mythal" under Flemeth's "race" box, or whatever). They elected to keep the spoiler (likely because they got defensive when I called them out for it), and it still pisses me off when wikis do that to this day. So I really appreciate it when I see wiki sites that don't put huge, ruinous spoilers at the top of the damn page. I'm liking this wiki more and more. :D LordSchmee (talk) 14:47, December 11, 2014 (UTC)
Race of FlemethEdit
Be weary, huge spoilers for Inquisition ahead.
I was tempted to add her race as human, as is the case with Anders. But is she more that that, truly deserving to be called a spirit? Or would it not be better to move most of this article into an article of Mythal, call Mythal a spirit there (like with Justice and Anders) and leave here her involvement in the games, and have her as human? henioo (da talk page) 11:31, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
- I think changing it to human would be good, as that's what she at least originally was and is at least partially still. I don't think anything that's currently on the article needs to be moved elsewhere. I'm neutral about Mythal as a spirit for now, as I'm undecided how best to handle that can of worms. --♫ Kelcat Talk 16:27, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
- Flemeth is human, the story Morrigan tells about the girl in the tower is entirely true. Although her age, power level, and relationship with Mythal, may make her semi-immortal that doesn't make her not human. Mythal and Flemeth are two seperate entities in a symbiotic relationship nothing more.--Swampshade (talk) 19:45, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
Infobox image Edit
Inspired by another recent image discussion, I think we should consider changing Flemeth's infobox image. Our image guidelines say to use the image from the game that the character has the most importance in. Consensus was agreed upon several months ago that that would be her role in Origins, and I think that was the best option at the time because it was before Inquisition. However, I think special consideration should now be given for the fact that her physical appearance in the last two games is drastically different from her appearance in Origins. (This newer look has also been used in more media such as artbooks than her original look). Since we have a total of three games that she's in, and she looks exactly the same in the two most recent games, I believe we should update her image to one from Inquisition. I think in this particular circumstance, fulfilling the guideline that says to use the image that "best represents them" would be done so by using an image that shows how she's looked for approximately the last 4 years, rather than from the game that she had the most importance in, storywise. --♫ Kelcat Talk 21:28, January 3, 2015 (UTC)
- It's been several months; was there more talk of this topic elsewhere? Because I agree that an image of Flemeth in her more stylized, dragon-y attire would be the best representation. --Death by Cheese (talk) 07:08, August 22, 2015 (UTC)
- I just uploaded the clearest screenshot I could get of Flemeth's face in Inquisition. The game has a LOT of atmosphere/effects/moody lighting, so it's a little cloudy near the top of the image. If anyone can get a clearer shot of Flemeth in DAI, feel free to replace this image. I was going for DAI because it's the most recent title she's in. I also tried to keep the image in a portrait layout, like most of the other characters' images. --Death by Cheese (talk) 22:21, August 22, 2015 (UTC)
Flemeth's husband Edit
The background section on the article says that Conobar was Flemeth's husband and Osen was her lover, but she herself disputes that and told Morrigan that Osen was her husband, however world of Thedas vol 2. suggests that Conobar might not have existed at all and that her husband's name was Teyrn Talemal. How should the three conflicting backtories be incorporated into the article?--Swampshade (talk) 05:07, May 21, 2015 (UTC)
- It's not exactly incorrect. It's written from an in-universe perspective where the "author" is stating that there's no proof of Conobar's existence and that the "story" may be based on Teyrn Talemal. They do the same thing a few different times in the book, like how it's just "speculation" that Alistair is Maric's son, and how no one knows what happened to Maric after he was lost at sea, and how the Canticle of Andraste has 500 different versions, etc.
- I personally say keep it as it is, with a trivia not about Teyrn Talemal. --♫ Kelcat Talk 07:07, May 21, 2015 (UTC)
Images of Flemeth Edit
Even though Flemeth has never been a playable character, I believe her importance and consistent presence in the series warrants consideration for her own image category. --Death by Cheese (talk) 07:04, August 22, 2015 (UTC)
- We don't have any real guidelines about categories so I think there's enough images of her to justify her getting her own category. --♫ Kelcat Talk 09:16, August 22, 2015 (UTC)
Morrigan's theory that Flemeth steals her daughter's bodies was never confirmed, so I think it should be described as 'Morrigan claims' rather than stated as a fact. Flemeth definitely talks about passing a soul on, "a soul is not forced on the unwilling," but the game leaves it vague whether she meant to pass down her own soul or just Mythal's.
There are repeated comments about Morrigan being mistaken about what Flemeth wants from her, both in Witch Hunt ("I thought I knew what Flemeth planned. I thought what she craved was immortality. And yet I was wrong. So very wrong.") and in Inquisition ("Is it worth reminding myself that perhaps I do not know everything after all?" "Flemeth claims I misunderstood"). And data-mined developer's note states Flemeth intended to let Solas take her power "so long as she can pass the essence of her god-hood onto Morrigan, a gift Flemeth had always planned for her daughter yet one Morrigan misunderstood as hostile possession."
Like most things Flemeth-related, it's left unclear, so Morrigan's bodyswapping theory hasn't been ruled out, but it hasn't been confirmed either. So describing it as Morrigan's claim would be more accurate. --126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:33, August 3, 2016 (UTC)
