Maybe it's not fair to have high expectations for a character you only have in your party in a DLC, but Nathaniel and Sigrun are among my favorites, so I don't think it's too much. In comparison to most of the other companions, Velanna has always struck me as being a little bit one-note: defined by her temper and her quest for revenge, and not much else. Other characters are certainly angry and ill-tempered -- Morrigan and Fenris come to mind -- but that's not all they are, and both of them are developed beyond that. For me, Velanna is not. She's so focused on revenge against humans and for her sister, even when she learns a bit of the truth behind her sister's situation, and it's hard for me to see past that with her. It's too bad that she's not brought into DA2 and developed further there.
Again, it's not that I hate Velanna, or even dislike her very much. But she could have been more, and I wish we'd seen her that way.
