Dragon Age 2 - Meredith by Lyshantia Dragon Age 2 - Meredith by Lyshantia
i have to admit Meredith is one of my absolute fav chars in DA2 and i really dont know why so many people seem to hate her... (ok except for the very end, that kinda sucked ._. )
i actually always side with the templars because of her xD



p.s. if you werent such a nutcase we couldve been bffs... ;A;

I am glad I found this. There is not enough work of Meredith. She is a great antagonist.

I admire this crazy powerful woman myself. Even with big baby cheeks like that she looks like she's going to burn down the empire! You do good.

Ooh, I really agree. Meredith has to be my favorite NPC in Dragon Age II, if not in all of the games. Is it wrong that I kind of wish she was a romance option? :iconmeredithplz:

I really liked her too, when you first met her she had this beautiful air of confidence and strength about her, its really a shame that she went totally apeshit.

Such an amazing Meredith work of art! I absolutely love it, Meredith is my favorite NPC in Dragon Age 2 and I completely understand her harsh attitude towards mages. It must have been very hard for her to get over the death of her parents murdered by her only sister who turned into an abomination for giving in to the demon's temptation...I really admire Meredith and the fact that in the end she became rather crazy deeply affected my attitude towards the mage's plight I actually understood one of the many reasons why they are so dangerous and must be kept under watch. When you try so hard to protect someone from something you fear and do not understand only to become something even more dangerous than that certain thing is truly sad! I felt so sorry for her when during the battle she started having doubts , asking herself weather she is actually doing the right thing. Thank you again for sharing this with us :clap:

I think she was too over the top if you were trying to balance her as a serious ally. Although when I did side with her, it was interesting to know The First Enchanter was covering up for the blood mage that murders your mom. Maybe it would have seemed fairer if that was something hinted at sooner.

If you know the whys behind Meredith's ways, rather like Loghain, she becomes understandable in her crazy. Like Loghain she was always doing what she thought was right to protect people. The tragedy is in that she thought she did not see she was hurting everyone with that drive to defend them.

Awesome pic. How much did you swear at the evil armor? XD

Ah, my fav char. When during her intro I was totally ready to kick Anders out and take her [link] But alas, it wasnt meant to be. Anyway, a beautiful rendition of one of my fav chars!!

Orsino was a wanker, but Meredith well and truly lost the plot. I was super pissed because she ordered the Right of Anullment when the man who blew up the Chantry was standing beside me. Party member or not, I'd have handed him over clapped in irons in half a heartbeat for what he did.

As for the pic, well......Evil is so very, very sexy.

I can't forget her first appearance in the game - saving your ass from a qunari mage during the end of Act II.... She really made quite the impression on me then.
Yes, a great character! Even thought she looks a bit younger here, I think you captured her very well, this is very intense!

heh i think supporting meredith completely in act 3 makes the story make a lot more sense and its better than defending those poor mages being slaughtered (and i dont like orsino much anyway personally xD )

Damn, totally agree with u, Meredith is awesome, only the lyrium staff messed her up, when Orsino (that bastard) was actually acting on his own mind.
And the glare! Like she's gona falcon-punch smb, always loved her glare btw, you did a great job setting accent on it

This looks EPIC. Sure she crazy but I think she puts up a greater point than any : )
I sorta hate her for having such a narrow view on a world with both magic and templars. But the very least more than her, I hate Anders now XD he whines too much and doesn't take enough responsibility like a man >:0

lol DA2 rly changed my view on how bad magic can be .__. it killed my family

well i think she has good reason to do the things she does as knight commander, judging from her own past and all shes not so different from hawke
ugh dont remind me of the male LIs... anders and fenris are both such annoying idiots imo -.- wish we couldve had at least sebastian/aveline as a third option, aveline wouldve been the first female in the DA universe my also (always) female chars wouldve romanced x)

I decided to go after Fenris, he IS cute, and cool. But no way in hell would I go after such a douche :( in the game he left me for THREE YEARS, came back "oh btw, i'm srry for dumping u after sex, forgive me? ;P" Sadly I stayed cuz I watched the vids on youtube(hey, it was a hot scene)

They are both whiners :-P I think in relationships, you r there to love the person, for who they are, not what they've been through, and ESPECIALLY not to FIX THEIR problems, you're supposed to help cuz hey, they're part of ur life but not be their problem solver, ugh -___- Bioware needs help lolz
I have a small <3 for Cullen~ Ever since Origins~ he looks better in the 2 one ;>

Oh and Merill is the CUTEST thing ever~ If I were into women, I'd chase her down ;D lol oh~ I'll make another character and romance Merill >:^D

lol on my first playthrough i was all OMG ANDERS FINALLY U R LI COME 'ERE!! then ran into fenris and his sexy voice and anders whining quickly got the boot xD and yea then i got dumped too and was so pissed that my romance ended then and there lol (i did the full romance on a later playthrough)

agreed on the relationship thing and at least for the male LIs bioware really dropped the ball on this one, all others were awesome from DAO, ME1+2 etc etc
oh yea! cullen is hawt xD

merril is cute but tbh shes just another bloodmage making deals with demons -.- and she disapproves if you dont kill her clan, wtf? xD

omg that happens?? oAo lol didn't get that far

OMG I would so hit the Arishok e..e lol I had a thing for Sten in origins... I know, I'm weird o..o Too bad I he wanted to take over the city and I had to kill him D: Never played ME1 but i played the second one :> it. was. AMAZING. I chose Thane over Garrus(a tough decision v..v) Thane kinda creeped me out at first, but then I ended up liking him~ ah, the key quality in Bioware~ To enable the player to connect and become attached with the game and story :D it's a luv hate relationship with this company ;P
