30 Days of DA: My own worst enemy

Day Twenty: Character you wouldn’t get along with

This is even harder than yesterday's question, for two reasons.

Firstly, one of the hallmarks of my own character is that I get along with almost everybody. I have made very few enemies in my time, and since adulthood have been able to be at least cordial with nearly everyone I meet, even the people I don't much care for. So it's hard for me to think of even one character that I would be totally unable to get along with, on some level.

On the other hand just because I love a character, find them fascinating, adore the part they play in the world and/or within Hawke's or the Warden's life, doesn't mean that I, personally, would like them if I met them. Looked at that way, I could make a case for half the party members in each game, not to mention most of the major NPCs -- I tend not to be fond of the zealots or the mischief-makers, and DA has more than its share of both. So how to narrow it down? Just as with Least Favorite Character, I think choosing an irredeemably evil character like Alrik or Rendon Howe would be cheating, and I probably shouldn't go back to the Velanna well again either. So instead, I'm going to pick Oghren.

Okay, you can all unfriend me now. ;)

As a character, and as a contributer to the ensemble, I like Oghren pretty well. And he's a lot of fun to watch from a distance -- hilarious and loyal, under the coarse, drunken exterior. But that's the problem: were I to know him in real life, I suspect I would have a hard time getting past that exterior. The hard-drinking, hard-living, sarcastic, crude almost to the point of harassment exterior. Even in the game it took me a little while to warm to him. So that's my answer, and I'm sticking to it.

    Was I really going to post three times a week this month? So much for that. I'm really behind on writing other things, too. I took a brief business…
