Dragon Age II Edit

Exploration comments Edit

  • (Approaching The Blooming Rose) The Blooming Rose. What do you suppose goes on in there?
  • (Approaching Gamlen's House) It's killing Mother to live in this filth-hole.
  • (While in the Gallows) Let's leave. This place makes me uncomfortable.
  • (While in the Deep Roads) So this is where the darkspawn come from! Bastards!

Combat comments Edit

Before a fight:

  • Well, this doesn't look good.
  • Fire and ice, obey me!
  • Be ready for anything, I'm sure there's more trouble to come!

During a fight:

  • I think there's a lesson here about the dangers of magic!
  • Don't worry, I'll help!
  • Maker's breath! More!
  • I always wanted to try this!
  • You're not getting away with that!
  • What are you, afraid? Your mistake!
  • What are you, afraid? I'm not hiding any more!

Kills an enemy:

  • Hah! That'll teach you!
  • Maker, forgive you!
  • And stay dead!

After a fight:

  • Whew, we made it.
  • Maker, the idiocy.
  • Ooh, that was surprisingly fun.
  • You know, that was almost fun.
  • Let's do this again sometime.
  • That was harder than I thought.
  • That's a lot of dead people.

Recovering from KO:

  • Clearly, I need to work on dodging.
  • Let's not do that again.
  • Can we not do that again?
  • If it didn't hurt to breathe right now, I'd hug you.
  • You are officially my favourite person!

Low on stamina:

  • I can't keep casting forever, you know.

Someone else KO'd:

  • (If Hawke falls and is male) My brother!
  • (If Hawke falls) Oh, no, no! You can't be dead! Get up!
  • (If Anders falls) Anders! Help is on its way!
  • (If Fenris falls) They've got Fenris!

Taking a potion:

  • I hope we have more of these.

Stuck:

  • What the- I can't move!

Trap:

  • Be really careful where you step.
  • Don't look at me, I can't do that.
  • Ooh, that didn't work like I thought.
  • I work magic, not miracles!
  • What? Do you think I'm made of mana?
  • I don't think I can help you with that.
  • This looks more like my specialty, mind if I give that a try?
  • Maybe I can help?
  • I could've done that blind-folded.

Bethany and Hawke Edit

(During the quest The First Sacrifice, when saying you're interested in Jethann's services)

  • Bethany: Maker's breath! Can't you do this when I'm not around?
  • Hawke: Run along and play, Bethany.
  • Bethany: This is not why we came to Kirkwall!

(When saying you're interested in Jethann's services, but refuse after Bethany's complaint)

  • Hawke: Fine. I'll do this some other day.
  • Bethany: It's too late. The images are already in my mind and they will never, ever go away.
───────

(When giving the bones you found during The First Sacrifice to Emeric)

  • Hawke: Recognize your mage?
  • Bethany: You're horrible!

Bethany and Anders Edit

  • Bethany: So, you were in the Circle and ran away. I don't know if I'd be brave enough to do that.
  • Anders: You've been an apostate your whole life.
  • Bethany: Exactly. It was never anything I had to work for.
  • Bethany: Other people always took the risks, to keep me free.
───────
  • Anders: Where did you learn your magic? I mean, you know my feelings on the Circle, but usually it's the only decent training a mage can get.
  • Bethany: My father taught me. He was in the Circle once, trained there. But he got away.
  • Anders: You don't know how lucky you were, to have someone who loved you and could help you. Most mages would kill for that.
  • Bethany: You remind me of him.
───────
  • Anders: The Rite of Tranquility is the whole problem. If they didn't have that to hold over us, we'd have so many more options.
  • Bethany: Right! If we want to fight back... or just engage in intelligent debate... they make sure we can't do it.
  • Anders: They're forcing our hands. There's no way to change things peacefully.
  • Bethany: There must be something.
  • Anders: If it's Tranquility or death, we have no choice but to make every confrontation a life-or-death struggle.
  • Bethany: I know, but... there are good people in the Circle, the Chantry. There has to be a way to reason with them.
  • Anders: Not if they take away your ability to reason.
───────
  • Bethany: I know it didn't work the way you wanted, but... it was brave, what you did with Justice.
  • Anders: It was meant well. I don't know if that's enough to forgive me.
  • Bethany: It must have been hard for him, being trapped outside the Fade. In a place where no one's like him.
  • Bethany: I bet he appreciated having a friend.
  • Anders: He did.

Bethany and Aveline Edit

  • Bethany: Was Wesley based out of the Lothering chantry? I don't remember seeing him there.
  • Aveline: He served elsewhere. He was coming to find me at Ostagar.
  • Aveline: Were you familiar with every templar in Lothering?
  • Bethany: How else was I supposed to know when to run and hide?
───────
  • Bethany: Being a guardsman seems like a better life than being a soldier.
  • Aveline: Oh?
  • Bethany: My brother was a soldier. It's all about taking land and serving some king you've never met.
  • Bethany: Guardsmen, they do something real. They protect people. They make their lives better.
  • Aveline: I don't know if I agree.
  • Bethany: Neither would my brother.
───────
  • Bethany: How come you and Wesley never had children? I mean, sorry if that's too personal—
  • Aveline: It's all right.
  • Aveline: I was a soldier and he was a templar. We knew that our personal lives would have to wait.
  • Aveline: Distance never mattered, but we ran out of time. It is what it is.
  • Bethany: Now that he's gone, do you ever wish—
  • Aveline: That's too personal.
───────
  • Aveline: You show admirable restraint, Bethany.
  • Bethany: For a mage, you mean.
  • Aveline: I could also say, "for a Hawke," but yes, for a mage.
  • Bethany: You have a sword. Why aren't you killing someone right now?
  • Aveline: Fair point, but I can put my sword down.
  • Bethany: Believe me, I have tried.
───────
  • Aveline: I'm sorry I couldn't get you more information about the Circle, Bethany. It's difficult without naming you.
  • Bethany: Thank you for being discreet. I don't want the templars at my door.
  • Aveline: No one does.
  • Bethany: Let them corral the troublemakers. I just want information.
  • Aveline: Right. Right.
  • Bethany: It sounds like I'm trying to convince myself, doesn't it?
  • Aveline: I wouldn't have said. But yes.

Bethany and Fenris Edit

  • Fenris: You've been an apostate your whole life, then?
  • Bethany: Like my father before me. What of it?
  • Fenris: Didn't your family consider that dangerous?
  • Bethany: There are mages who go their whole lives without ever falling prey to a demon. Many of them, in fact.
  • Fenris: And if the Templars came looking for you? That would not be danger enough?
  • Bethany: Perhaps there shouldn't be any Templars.
───────
  • Fenris: You know, you cannot wish the Templars away.
  • Bethany: I can try.
  • Fenris: Is the Circle here truly so terrible an option?
  • Bethany: Do you really have to ask that?
  • Fenris: You would be kept safe from others as well as yourself, and they would be kept safe from you.
  • Bethany: I... didn't ask for this.
  • Fenris: Nobody asks for their fate.
───────
  • Bethany: Do you ever miss Tevinter?
  • Fenris: I was a slave.
  • Bethany: Still, it was your home, right? The only one you remember?
  • Bethany: Does it ever feel strange not to be there?
  • Fenris: Sometimes. That does not mean I would go back.
───────
  • Bethany: So, the magister put lyrium in your skin?
  • Fenris: So I'm told.
  • Bethany: Does it hurt?
  • Fenris: You do not want to know the answer to that.

Bethany and Isabela Edit

  • Bethany: What were you before you were a pirate?
  • Isabela: I had a husband. He didn't beat me, that's about the best I can say about it.
  • Bethany: So you left him?
  • Isabela: He was murdered. By my lover. It was all very... Antivan.
  • Bethany: Oh. I don't think I'd like to live in Antiva.
───────
  • Bethany: So you've... been with women. In bed?
  • Isabela: I know. Shocking, isn't it?
  • Isabela: You see, sweetness, men are only good for one thing. Women are good for six.
  • Bethany: Six? Which six?
  • Hawke: Isabela!
  • Isabela: (Laughs)
───────
  • Bethany: I guess you've been with a lot of men.
  • Isabela: Men. Women. Elves. A dwarf in drag once, but I don't recommend that.
  • Bethany: Oh.
  • Isabela: Aw... you're blushing! Why? How many lovers have you had?
  • Bethany: I-I never—
  • Isabela: You're a virgin? Hawke, you've been holding out on the poor girl! Get her a night at the Blooming Rose. On me!
  • Bethany: That's, um, very generous.
  • Isabela: I'm a giver.
───────
  • Bethany: That book you were reading this morning, "Hessarian's Spear"— I don't think he had a spear in the legends.
  • Isabela: He does in this one. Read the description.
  • Bethany: "Andraste knelt before no man but her Maker, but she hadn't counted on the archon Hessarian."
  • Bethany: "Can Hessarian penetrate the tight-knit defenses of the warrior-prophetess? Will she be prepared to face the full blast of his... power?"
  • Bethany: Wait a minute... Isabela! This is a vulgar thing!
  • Isabela: You want to borrow it?
  • Bethany: No!
  • Isabela: You sure? It has pictures!
  • Bethany: Not listening! I'm not listening!
───────

((When entering the barracks in the Viscount's Keep)

  • Isabela: Coming here of my own free will feels wrong... Like diddling a sister.
  • Bethany: Why? Why do you say these things?

Bethany and Merrill Edit

  • Bethany: So, there's no Circle among the Dalish?
  • Merrill: Any child with the gift of magic is apprenticed to a Keeper... in another clan if there's no need in her own.
  • Bethany: That sounds nice.
  • Merrill: Magic is a gift of the Creators. Why wouldn't we use it?
  • Merrill: It just seems... wasteful for humans to lock their mages away where they can't do any good.

(If Fenris is in the party)

  • Fenris: Of course, you're a blood mage.
  • Bethany: Oh. Right.

(Otherwise)

  • Bethany: But... you are a blood mage.
───────
  • Bethany: So, is the Keeper... your mother?
  • Merrill: I left my clan when I was a child to become Marethari's First.
  • Merrill: I haven't seen my parents in more than ten years.
  • Bethany: I'm so sorry! My father died in the Blight. You must really miss them.
  • Merrill: I remember my mother singing to me, when I was a little girl and I'd get sick. I think that's what I miss the most.
  • Merrill: The Keeper has a terrible singing voice.
───────
  • Merrill: You're so lucky.
  • Bethany: How do you figure?
  • Merrill: I wish I had a brother/sister and a mother and an uncle.
  • Merrill: It must be wonderful. You'd never be alone!
  • Bethany: It is wonderful. Although it might be better without Uncle Gamlen.
───────
  • Merrill: If you could do anything - just anything at all - what would you do?
  • Bethany: That's easy. Be normal. No magic, just... normal.
  • Merrill: Really? You wouldn't fly across Thedas or eat a cake the size of Kirkwall? Keep a baby griffon for a pet?
  • Bethany: Well, now that you say it, the griffon might not be so bad.
  • Merrill: I'd name mine "Feathers."

Bethany and Varric Edit

  • Bethany: You don't seem to like your brother very much.
  • Varric: And here I thought it took blood magic to read minds.
  • Bethany: I had a twin brother, Carver. He used to nail my braid to the bed while I was sleeping.
  • Bethany: I never thought I'd miss him this much.
  • Varric: Sorry about your brother.
  • Varric: Hey, you want mine? I've got a spare...
───────
  • Bethany: Do you ever wish you lived in Orzammar?
  • Varric: Great Ancestors, no! You know what Orzammar is?
  • Varric: It's cramped tunnels, filled with nug-shit and body-odor.
  • Varric: And every person there thinks he's better than you because his great-great-great grandfather made a water-clock or something.
  • Bethany: But they're your people. Don't you even wonder what it would be like?
  • Varric: I have a good imagination. Why would I waste it on that?
───────
  • Bethany: Are you really not afraid of apostates? Not even a little?
  • Varric: Sunshine, I'm a dwarf. In case you missed that detail.
  • Bethany: Dwarves aren't completely immune to magic, you know.
  • Varric: Who has time to worry about apostates with a Merchant's Guild breathing down your neck?
  • Bethany: In that case... I see.
───────
  • Bethany: Your family used to be noble, right?
  • Varric: By some definition of the term.
  • Bethany: Do you ever wonder what your life would have been like, if you were still nobles?
  • Varric: Sunshine, nobility is just an expensive lifestyle. I've already got one of those.
  • Bethany: Nobles have power, too. And responsibilities.
  • Varric: Estates, servants, investments, mercenaries, assassins? We've still got all those things.
  • Varric: It's sunnier here, and nobody calls me my lord. I think I can live with that.
───────

Only if Birthright has been completed:

  • Varric: So... Milady Sunshine, what's your first act of noblewoman going to be?
  • Bethany: A noblewoman with no fortune and no title? Looking for work, probably.
  • Varric: Practicality is for peasants, my lady. You need to do something frivolous to celebrate your birthright.
  • Bethany: Such as...?
  • Varric: Come up to the Hightown Market and complain bitterly that there's no Orlesian silk that matches your eyes.
  • Bethany: But what if something does match my eyes? What will I do, then?
  • Varric: Insist that they're blatantly copying you, and demand royalties. A good noble always has a complaint ready, Sunshine.

Legacy Edit

Bethany's remarks Edit

  • (During Act 1) "Aren't we trying to raise money to go to the Deep Roads? Why didn't we just bring Bartrand with us now?"
  • (If Bethany is a Grey Warden) "Once more to the Deep Roads. I remember when that seemed so daunting... full of promise. We were young and stupid. Let's hope we're not just older."

Bethany and Hawke Edit

(In Act 1)

  • Bethany: I'm worried about mother. All she does is sit in that rathole and think about Carver. It's eating her up.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Well, if she ever left the house, Gamlen would probably steal that too.
  • Bethany: I don't think even Gamlen could steal something that doesn't belong to him.
  • Hawke: He would try.
  • Bethany: I've tried to get mother to look for work, or reconnect with some of her childhood friends. But she went to visit the Comte de Launcet once, and now she refuses to try again. She says it's just "too pathetic."

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Brooding isn't going to bring him back.
  • Bethany: I've tried to get mother to look for work, or reconnect with some of her childhood friends. But she went to visit the Comte de Launcet once, and now she refuses to try again. She says it's just "too pathetic."

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: How can we help?
  • Bethany: I've tried to get mother to look for work, or reconnect with some of her childhood friends. But she went to visit the Comte de Launcet once, and now she refuses to try again. She says it's just "too pathetic."
───────

(If Bethany is in the Circle and All That Remains has not been completed)

  • Bethany: Mother seems happier. A few years distance from all that loss... it's a good thing. She must worry, with both of us in a place like this. She was adamant I not go, last time.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: And look what happened.
  • Bethany: I'd have gone to the Circle eventually. Perhaps not so gently. Better or worse, it is what it is.

(If Bethany joined the Grey Wardens and All That Remains has not been completed)

  • Bethany: Mother seems happier. A few years distance from all that loss... it's a good thing. She must worry, with both of us in a place like this. She was adamant I not go, last time.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: I don't want to think of it myself.
  • Bethany: You'd better! I don't want a repeat of the last time! Not that it's possible.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: We'll be careful.
  • Bethany: She's heard that before, and so have I.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Then don't tell her.
  • Bethany: After the thought that brought us here? She's not stupid. Just... be careful when it comes up.
───────

(If All That Remains has been completed and Bethany is in the Circle)

  • Bethany: I'm glad mother... well, she didn't need to deal with this. Attacks on both of us... Why couldn't they go after Gamlen?

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Good taste?
  • Bethany: Unlikely given the average shadow-dweller. There are enough in your wake for a reasonably representative study. The templars often question me about what you do, you know.
  • Hawke: Another reason for me to like them.
  • Bethany: You had reason to begin with? It doesn't matter. They're just questions, and I've stored quite a bewildering weave of answers.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Might not miss him, but I'd still hunt them down for it.
  • Bethany: (Laughs) Yes, you've left quite the trail in other matters. The templars often question me about what you do, you know.
  • Hawke: If they hurt you I'll make them regret it.
  • Bethany: Templars don't take threats well. It doesn't matter. They're just questions, and I've stored quite a bewildering weave of answers.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: I wouldn't wish it even on him.
  • Bethany: He's earned worse, by some measures. The templars often question me about what you do, you know.
  • Hawke: Can I help stop that?
  • Bethany: Their solution would be rather drastic I think. It doesn't matter. They're just questions, and I've stored quite a bewildering weave of answers.
───────

(If All That Remains has been completed and Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Bethany: I'm glad mother... well, she didn't need to deal with this. Attacks on both of us... Why couldn't they go after Gamlen?

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Good taste?
  • Bethany: (Laughs) I wish the things lurking in the dark had such a discerning palate. It'd be almost comforting. Understandable. Instead of what I've seen. Thanks to... this life.
  • Hawke: You'd have less to know about it if you were, you know, dead.
  • Bethany: Sometimes I wonder.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: I wouldn't wish it even on him.
  • Bethany: No, I suppose not. Attack from the dark, no warning. I see enough of that. Thanks to... this life.
  • Hawke: I'm sorry. I couldn't lose you, and I did anyway.
  • Bethany: The way of this world, I think.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Might not miss him, but I'd still hunt them down for it.
  • Bethany: Mm. I know. Can't have a threat lurking in the dark. I've learned that thrice over. It's not what I would've chosen, this life, but given everything else that we've lost... Well, you do this for a few years, you learn not to take second chances for granted.
  • Hawke: You'd still rather be dead?
  • Bethany: I am dead. It's just... taking it's time.
───────

(If Bethany is in the Circle)

  • Bethany: That corruption. I don't think there's any record of it having... that effect. But even the threat of it... anyone normal would choose to die first.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Keep thinking good thoughts.
  • Bethany: Too many ignore it. That's why we need Grey Wardens, and why they're at risk of... that.
  • Hawke: You'd still rather be dead?
  • Bethany: I am dead. It's just... taking it's time.
───────

(If Bethany joined the Grey Wardens)

  • Bethany: That corruption... that's what I was saved from. You wouldn't have let it go that far though. You'd have done anything.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: No worries, everything is dandy now.
  • Bethany: Oh, quite.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: And I would again.
  • Bethany: I know.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: It shouldn't have been necessary.
  • Bethany: Maybe. But thanks.

(Or, in a rivalry)

  • Bethany: That corruption... that's what I was saved from. If you call it saved, anyway.
  • Hawke: I do, and you should too.

Bethany and Anders Edit

(During Act 1)

  • Bethany: I'm starting to see why you left the Grey Wardens. I wouldn't want to spend my whole life surrounded by darkspawn.
  • Anders: That wasn't it. I meant it, when I joined the Wardens. I expected it to be for life. If I wasn't prepared for that, I would never have gone through the Joining.
  • Bethany: So what happened?
  • Anders: Justice. Apparently, even the Taint Brigade draws the line at abominations.
───────

(If Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Anders: You know, we're a long way from the Circle. Down here, a mage could easily slip her leash.
  • Bethany: I'm not leashed, Anders. I allowed this.
  • Anders: You gave up, you mean. Threw your life away.
  • Bethany: I accept what I am and act accordingly. I can pretend to be miserable if you want, but I'm not.
  • Anders: You don't understand the stakes.
  • Bethany: Well it's a good thing you're here to carry the burden.
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Bethany: Back in the Deep Roads. Like it or not, hmm?
  • Anders: Like it or not.
  • Bethany: Must be hard, after walking away from the Wardens. Not everyone gets that choice.
  • Anders: You know what I chose. Or what chose me.

Bethany and Aveline Edit

(During Act 1)

  • Aveline: You're quiet, Bethany.
  • Bethany: We all should be. We're asking for trouble. Going to the Deep Roads so we can get coin to go to the Deep Roads. Need our heads examined is what we need.

(If Aveline is Hawke's rival)

  • Aveline: You make sense. Are you sure you're a Hawke?
  • Bethany: Sometimes I wonder.

(If Aveline is Hawke's friend)

  • Aveline: I'm sure you're brother/sister will be careful.
  • Bethany: Are you sure you mean my brother/sister?

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: That's about enough of that.
───────
  • Bethany: I-I never really understood what you were saving Wesley from. The old witch said there was no cure but I assumed he was just... die. It's so much worse isn't it?
  • Aveline: Death is better than losing yourself as a ghoul. Wesley knew that.
  • Bethany: I just keep thinking, what if that had been Carver...?

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: I'd have never let that happen to him, Bethany. Carver died a hero.
  • Bethany: You're right. It just seems like we're always being pulled back towards the darkspawn. I wonder if we'll ever really be free of them.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Then he'd finally have something real to complain about.
  • Bethany: You're right. It just seems like we're always being pulled back towards the darkspawn. I wonder if we'll ever really be free of them.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: It wasn't. Don't borrow trouble.
  • Bethany: You're right. It just seems like we're always being pulled back towards the darkspawn. I wonder if we'll ever really be free of them.
───────

(If Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Aveline: I'm glad to see you out of the Gallows.
  • Bethany: Not the occasion I would have chosen but we do what we must.
  • Aveline: Always?
  • Bethany: Always. I'm fine, Aveline. Life is what I need it to be.
  • Aveline: And what you want?
  • Bethany: I wouldn't always have said so, but yes.
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Aveline: So, how are you?
  • Bethany: Never better. Except for the slow death.
  • Aveline: What should I say? At least it's slow.
  • Bethany: It's fine, Aveline. I have purpose. Everyone should be so lucky.
  • Aveline: If you need anything...
  • Bethany: Wardens want for nothing in this life. But thank you.

Bethany and Fenris Edit

  • Fenris: You must hate the darkspawn, after what they did to your home.

(During Act 1)

  • Bethany: And Carver. A little.
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) Mother is still sick with grief.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) Well, I hate them a lot.
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) There was nothing we could do back then.
  • Fenris: I never knew him. I'm sorry for your loss.
  • Bethany: Thank you.

(If Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Bethany: They are mindless. What is there to blame? May as well swear at a force of nature. I don't see the point.

(If Isabela is in the party)

  • Bethany: They are mindless. What is there to blame? That'd be like Isabela hating the weather for taking her ship.
  • Fenris: That's... an interesting perspective.

(Friendship)

  • Bethany: It's... taken a long time to reach it. Thank you.

(Rivalry)

  • Bethany: Oh, good. I almost choked on it a little there. A work in progress.
  • Isabela: Stupid weather.

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Bethany: I have a lot of hate. But it's not so focused. It's... deeper for a Warden. It's been a struggle to let that go.
  • Fenris: But you have?
  • Bethany: Let's call it a work in progress.

Bethany and Isabela Edit

(In Act 1)

  • Bethany: How do you stand the Hanged Man?
  • Isabela: Drink enough, my dear, and standing is the least of your worries.
───────

(If Bethany is a Circle Mage)

  • Bethany: They took away the books you sent. "Non-curricular." And illegal in some countries.
  • Isabela: No appreciation for the classics. Why read if it's not inspiring?
  • Bethany: I'm not sure they were even anatomically possible.
  • Isabela: Dream of a day, sweetness.
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Bethany: Still in the Hanged Man?
  • Isabela: When I can be. I miss you, sweetness.
  • Bethany: I do too.
  • Isabela: Well, you save the world, the rest of us will be waiting.
  • Bethany: Fair enough.

Bethany and Merrill Edit

(During Act 1)

  • Bethany: Which would you rather have? A baby griffon, or a pet dragon?
  • Merrill: Oh, definitely a griffon. You can't really pet a dragon can you? They're all scaly.
  • Bethany: You've thought about this before.
───────

(If Hawke and Merrill are in a romance in Act 2)

  • Bethany: You're a cute couple. Do you have pet names?

(If Hawke has a diplomatic personality)

  • Hawke: That's a little awkward.
  • Bethany: Only if it's true, and I think I have my answer.
  • Merrill: I missed something again, didn't I?

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: What, like Little Griffin and Baby Dragon?
  • Merrill: Oh, definitely a Griffin! You can't really pet a dragon, can you? They're all scaly.
  • Bethany: I'm kind of sorry for asking.

(If Hawke has an aggressive personality)

  • Hawke: No.
  • Bethany: You do!
  • Hawke: Not your business.
  • Merrill: I missed something again, didn't I?

Bethany and Sebastian Edit

(If Bethany is in the Circle)

  • Bethany: So, Sebastian... you're a prince.
  • Sebastian: That is my lot, Lady Hawke.
  • Bethany: (Laughs) I'm a mage. I don't hear "Lady" very often.
  • Sebastian: You think there is shame in being in the Circle?
  • Bethany: Isn't there?
  • Sebastian: You were made as you are. I have yet to see evidence of the Maker's fallibility. I certainly don't see any in you.
  • Bethany: I... oh my.

(If Hawke is male)

  • Hawke: (Chuckles)

(If Hawke is female)

  • Bethany: So, Sebastian... you're a prince.
  • Sebastian: That is my lot, Lady Hawke.
  • Bethany: (Laughs) My sister gets "Lady" a lot more than I do.
  • Sebastian: You're no less deserving.
  • Bethany: You think so? The templars might not agree.
  • Sebastian: You were made as you are. I have yet to see evidence of the Maker's fallibility. I certainly don't see any in you.
  • Bethany: I... oh my.
  • Hawke: (Chuckles)

(If Isabela is in the party)

  • Isabela: Phew, no kidding.

(If Varric is in the party)

  • Varric: Choirboy is butter.
  • Isabela: He melted mine.
Note: Isabela's reply to Varric is achieved by using the console on PC, by adding Isabela as a party member.
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Bethany: So, Sebastian... you're a prince.
  • Sebastian: That is my lot, Lady Hawke.
  • Bethany: (Laughs) This life is not... supportive of delicate titles.
  • Sebastian: To have a second chance, and one with such purpose, it cannot be a curse.
  • Bethany: This wasn't my choice. If there's something good or beautiful in any of this, please, enlighten me.
  • Sebastian: Well, there's you.
  • Bethany: I... oh my.
  • Hawke: (Chuckles)
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden and Hawke is a friendly romance with Sebastian)

  • Bethany: So, Sebastian... you're a prince.
  • Sebastian: And better, if the Maker and the pure love of your sister carry me to it.
  • Bethany: Right, You're "married."

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: It was beautiful.
  • Bethany: I'm sure it was. I'm sorry I missed it. And everything else.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: I know! Weird, huh?
  • Bethany: Ugh. A little... Just... don't screw it up.

( If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Jealous?
  • Bethany: Oh, just shut it.
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden and Hawke is a rivalry romance with Sebastian)

  • Bethany: So, Sebastian... you're a prince.
  • Sebastian: That is my lot, Lady Hawke.
  • Bethany: (Laughs) My sister gets "Lady" a lot more than I do.
  • Sebastian: You're no less deserving.
  • Bethany: You think so? Even with... you know. Warden.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: Bethany?
  • Bethany: Yes, sister?
  • Hawke: Good to have you back with us.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Bethany?

Bethany: Yes, sister?

  • Hawke: Nothing. Just interrupting. Mm?

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Bethany?
  • Bethany: Yes, sister?
  • Hawke: Back off.

Bethany and Varric Edit

Mark of the Assassin Edit

Bethany's remarks Edit

  • (When clicked after helping Tallis) "This had better not be a trap."
  • (When clicked after leaving Tallis) "A few years ago I would have loved to linger in the Chateau. Not anymore."
  • (When seeing Hawke as a Circle Mage or a Grey Warden) "Brother!" (or if Hawke is a female) "Sister!"

Bethany and Hawke Edit

(After the ambush in Hightown)

  • Bethany: What are we going to do about all these dead Crows?
  • Hawke: I think the street sweepers clean them up eventually.
  • Bethany: That really doesn't make me feel better.
  • Tallis: Everyone's got to make a living somehow.
───────

(During Act 1)

  • Bethany: Are you sure we should be doing this?
  • Bethany: I mean, I know we need coin, but... stealing? What if this duke is on good terms with the templars?

(If Hawke has a diplomatic personality)

  • Hawke: We're not stealing. We're returning the jewel to its rightful owner.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke:
    • (If you worked for Meeran) You don't bat an eye at fireballing people for Meeran's profit, but you draw the line at stealing?
    • (If you worked for Athenril) You were all right with smuggling thousands of sovereigns for Athenril, but you draw the line at one jewel?
  • Bethany: We didn't have a choice. Now that we're working for ourselves, I just thought we could do better.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: We won't get caught.
───────

(If Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Hawke: Happy to be out of the Circle?
  • Bethany: It's strange. I miss a lot, but other things...

(If Hawke is female)

  • Bethany: You're a far better "Lady Hawke" than I would have been.
  • Hawke: I don't believe that for a second.

(If Hawke is male)

  • Bethany: You're a far better representative of the family than I would have been.
  • Hawke: Please be sure to tell these snobs.
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Hawke: Happy to be out of the Deep Roads for a while?
  • Bethany: Not especially.
  • Bethany: I'm sure it's nice for you. These are your kind of people.
  • Bethany: No, that wasn't fair. I'm... I'm sorry. That was about me.
  • Hawke: I know. And it wasn't fair for you either.

Bethany and Anders Edit

(While looking for Hawke and Tallis)

  • Anders: Don't panic, but I think we've been through here before.
  • Bethany: You're the one tearing your hair out.
  • Anders:
    • (If Bethany is a Grey Warden) Typical Warden disregard. Do you even care anymore?
    • (If Bethany is a Circe Mage) Does the Kirkwall Circle teach you to be smug? In addition to obedient, I mean.
  • Bethany:
    • (If Bethany is a Grey Warden) Yes, you should talk about what caring looks like. Keep moving.
    • (If Bethany is a Circle Mage) When appropriate. Come on, let's just find them.

Bethany and Aveline Edit

  • Bethany: Is it because we're not actually in Kirkwall?
  • Aveline: What?

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Bethany: That you allow my sister to cavort like this.
  • Bethany: You're the guard captain, aren't you? Honor bound to stop this.
  • Aveline: We'll see. But generally, the honor-bound don't get much done.
  • Bethany: Codswallop.

(During Act 1, or if Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Bethany: I mean, as a city guard, aren't you honor-bound to stop Tallis from stealing... whatever she's after?
  • Aveline: We'll see. But generally, the honor-bound don't get much done.
  • Bethany: Good point.
───────

(While looking for Hawke and Tallis)

  • Aveline: This can't be right.
  • Bethany: We could double back, I suppose. I expect we've got time.

(if Hawke is male)

  • Aveline: Knowing your brother? Probably.
  • Bethany: Still, we'd better hurry. Poor Brother might think we don't miss him.

(if Hawke is female)

  • Aveline: Knowing your sister? Probably.
  • Bethany: Still, better make it look good. Wouldn't want her to feel neglected.

Bethany and Fenris Edit

  • Fenris: You should wear one of those Orlesian dresses, Bethany.

(During Act 1)

  • Bethany: Why? Because I'm a girl? Because I should wear big, flowing skirts?
  • Fenris: Because you'd look pretty in one.
  • Bethany: I...oh, I see. They are pretty, aren't they?

(If Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Bethany: Not Circle compliant, I'm afraid.
  • Fenris: Is compliance your only concern?
  • Bethany: Given some of your training? Flammability is a big one as well.

(If Bethany is a Warden)

  • Bethany: If only. Imagine the snags I'd get chasing darkspawn.
  • Fenris: Why does fashion not consider the needs of the woman on the go?
  • Bethany: All right, don't work it too hard.
───────

(While trying to find Hawke and Tallis)

  • Bethany: Bloody runaround twisted shite of a maze.
  • Fenris: Ooh, you've learned a few new words.

(If Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Bethany: Not every book in the Circle is high literature.
  • Fenris: Obviously.

(If Bethany is a Warden)

  • Bethany: Wardens get called a few.
  • Fenris: Undeservedly, I'm sure.
───────

(If completed before All That Remains)

  • Bethany: What am I going to tell Mother? "Sorry, I got lost and left your heir in an Orlesian's dungeon?"
  • Bethany: She will never forgive me. My brother/sister will never forgive me! Carver and Father will come back from the grave just to haunt me!
  • Fenris: What she'll say should be the least of your worries. We may die in here, and she'll never get the news.
  • Bethany: You are not helping.

Bethany and Isabela Edit

(If Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Isabela: Just like old times, isn't it? Going on adventures, getting into scrapes. It's like you're free again.
  • Bethany: I don't mind it so much. I don't have to hide, or worry about templars hunting me.
  • Bethany: It's funny. The idea of the Circle is much more terrifying than the reality of it.
  • Bethany: Though perhaps my transition was made easier by the books you sent along with your letters.
  • Isabela: Oh, you liked them, did you?
  • Bethany: They were wicked. It was like you were there.
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) Please, for the love of all that's holy, don't write to my sister anymore.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) What am I hearing? I don't want to hear this! I'm not hearing this!
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) Ugh. Must you talk about this within earshot?
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Isabela: It's good to see you back. It's like old times again.
  • Bethany: You know it's not. It'll never be like it was.
  • Isabela: We can always pretend. If we do it well enough, we might forget that things have changed.
  • Bethany: (Laughs) You're ridiculous.
  • Isabela: Whatever works, sweetness.

Bethany and Merrill Edit

  • Bethany: Lost your spool of twine?
  • Merrill: Yes, I was going to drop breadcrumbs, but we don't have any bread.
  • Bethany: We'll find them. If they're still here to be found.
  • Merrill: Don't worry! If we keep going, eventually we'll get somewhere! Probably an airing cupboard. I seem to wind up in those a lot.

Bethany and Sebastian Edit

(While looking for Hawke and Tallis. )

  • Bethany: No, the layout is wrong. We're back where we started.
  • Bethany:
    • (If Bethany is a Circle mage) It's backwards from every book on Orlais I've seen. It's just not-
    • (If Bethany is a Grey Warden) I swear, what I wouldn't give for a straightforward Deep Road... and-

(Bethany stops talking as she looks at him. He smiles and she smiles back. Then he runs off)

  • Bethany:
    • (If Hawke is romancing Sebastian) Sister, you lucky bitch.
    • (Otherwise) Oh, Maker.

Bethany and Varric Edit

Bethany and Tallis Edit

  • Tallis: So you're Hawke's sister.

(During Act 1)

  • Bethany: Did he/she tell you that?
  • Tallis: Not at all. You think someone can't tell?
  • Bethany: What do you mean? We're nothing alike! Or at least, I don't think so...
  • Tallis: You're adorable. I wish I'd had a sister like you.

(If Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Bethany: The mage who went away, yes.
  • Tallis: Many families have them.
  • Hawke: And are proud of them.
  • Tallis: It shows.

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Bethany: I was. Before I got the Blight.
  • Hawke: Bethany.
  • Bethany: Oh, right, sorry. Everything's just like it always was. Better?
  • Tallis: Not especially. Never mind.
