I think Dragon Age 2 is kind of inflating my ego

Because every time someone messes with me in-game, I’m like “Don’t you know who I am? I’M THE CHAMPION, BITCH!”

In ten years, a hundred years, we will look back on the day that Marian Hawke was created and think, “Fuck, humanity really outdid itself that day.”
I can’t tell whether I want to be her or bed her. And I’m straight as a 2x4.
/*swoon*
What I love best about the Armor of the Champion is that it combines touches from all the Companion armors — Fenris’s weird gauntlets, Anders’s pauldrons, Bethany’s chainmail, Aveline’s guard plate, Varric’s gloves. The leather matches Carver’s jerkin, the blood tattoo suggests Merrill’s vallasin. I like to think it’s a visual reminder that Varric may be liberally salting Hawke’s personality and heroics by borrowing from those around her. But maybe I’m reading too much into it.

I wrote a huge personal post about Garrett Hawke yesterday and how much I love him, but I tossed in a note about how much I adore Marian and how I’m sick of the fallacy that you can either love one or the other.  Calling bullshit on that right now, because Marian Hawke is a boss and I’d like to talk about her right now.
Marian is just as revolutionary as her counterpart, if not moreso, because as atypical as Garrett is for male protagonist (and he is), being the center of the story is still typically a role reserved for men.  If Marian was standing here right now, she’d probably say something far more eloquently than what I’m going to say but still amounts to, “Fuck that.”
I love Marian and Bethany, but the only time I actually prefer Carver is when I’m playing Marian as a mage because it is such a unique situation for the grumpy little brother to be legitimately jealous of his sister’s abilities, of her standing, of what she’s done, of being the one looked to in order to keep the family together.  That’s not something you see every day, and I love it.
She’s the human center of a hurricane, but it’s a hurricane that wants to keep people she cares for together.  Both she and Garrett have their own needs, their own flaws, and their own defense mechanisms—for me, Garrett jokes about it, Marian wants to punch it.  She doesn’t have any tolerance for self-serving bullshit or being jerked around. She’s determined to stay in control of her own circumstances and has her eyes set on a goal: gaining the standing to protect either her sister or herself from templars. 
I was thinking this morning about how differently I view them—I see Garrett’s narrative as more enduring and surviving loss, while I see Marian’s as enduring loss to eventually gain something, and I do think a little of this has to do with their respective LIs for me.  I am all about Garrett/Anders, and the Anders romance is a bit on the tragic side. (I know, understatement, but I’m a sap who does imagine the best ending for them possible.) As far as Marian goes, I’m all about Marian/Isabela.  Isabela, who tells her that family isn’t just about people she’s related to by blood when she’s hurt after losing her mother.  Isabela, who she fucks up the Arishok for without a second thought, putting a woman in the position to save her love interest—something else extraordinarily uncommon, narrative wise, and it becomes even more significant if she’s a mage because she’s risking herself, risking everything she had gained up until that point, for the woman she loves.  In the end, even though Kirkwall is in shambles, she has a secure future with her favorite lady as they sail around, knock back copious amounts of alcohol, and fuck shit up.  BEST PIRATE DUO EVER.
Honestly, while Garrett is the one that I relate to, who has brought me to goofy tears for meta reasons, Marian is the one that I admire.   I wouldn’t want to be Garrett Hawke, hell no.  But sometimes I catch myself thinking that I sure would love to be like Marian.  She is a boss, she is iconic, and I love her so much.  Bioware needs to cut out that marketing fail, stat, because I would have loved to see both Garrett and Marian on the cover of DA2—they are both their own character in so many ways, and both worthy of respect.
