BioWare writers on Anora
Maria Caliban: Anora is great. You betray her and she betrays you right back. Players are just used to NPCs that take anything lying down.
The Angry One: She does it either way, the fact that she does it if you’re a sneak too is mere coincidence, she’s a rat through and through.
Sheryl Chee (BioWare): No, she doesn’t. She betrays you if you rat her out to Cauthrien, if you don’t bother talking to her at Arl Eamon’s estate, and if you say you’re going to kill her dad. All good reasons to betray you, in my opinion.
The Angry One:I’m not sure how not talking to her is reasonable justification outside the realm of paranoid wearers of tin-foil hats..
Mary Kirby (BioWare): She tells you quite clearly that she wants to stay Queen. She knows that Eamon wants to put Alistair on the throne instead. If you don’t come talk to her about the Landsmeet, of course she assumes you’re sticking with Eamon’s plan to put The Boy Who Would Rather Be Thinking About Cheese on the throne. Tinfoil hat is optional.
Sheryl Chee: She’s like “Hi, Grey Warden. Please come talk to me, we need to discuss my dad’s complete ass-hattery.” She needs to know she can trust you. If she doesn’t know she can trust you with Ferelden, she’s not going to be on your side.
The Angry One: Which in the end means she’ll do anything to grasp onto her power, including messing with me. I suppose that maybe justifiable to her.. but I still get to hate her for it =P
Sheryl Chee: Anora wants what’s best for Ferelden, which is honestly, Anora. Anora was raised to be a queen, she understands her people, she understands politics. She is not power-hungry. She is afraid that Alistair will run Ferelden into the ground, which honestly, he might. He’s a nice guy, sure, but is that kingly material? I don’t think so. Mary is right. Alistair is the Boy Who’d Rather Be Thinking About Cheese. And playing with all those carved statues that you give him as gifts (they’re like action figures to him). Really? Alistair? King?
blows my mind that women are considered shrill and whiny when all i have to do is insinuate that male feelings are not my #1 priority at all times and every indignant male in a 500 mile radius comes out of the woodwork to let me know how they feel

DRAGON AGE INQUISITION TAROT SYMBOLISM - 5/13 - Blackwall - Judgement
Judgement is one of the most powerful cards in the deck. It is related to spiritual and physical matters and is at the base of all decisions and actions one takes. It represents rebirth and awakening of the spirit.
The Judgement card is often represented by a powerful person in the sky accompanied by a mythological creature, such as a phoenix or griffon. The person (in this case, Blackwall) is entitled to cast judgement on those beneath him (the darkspawn). There are often people beneath the figure in the sky, but the fact that Blackwall is judging darkspawn and not people means that his intentions are purely to assist the innocent, there is no question of his morality. The presence of the griffon is interesting because in the DA universe, the griffon is extinct. The much more traditional creature used in the Judgement card is the phoenix, which rises from it’s own ashes. Could potentially be a nod to the griffons coming back from extinction.
Blackwall is seen in full Warden armour, riding the griffon and slaying darkspawn, he is in the role of a protector. An interesting point to make is that the ‘judgement’ referred to in the card specifically connects to the potential ‘judgement’ one may receive at the end of one’s life, according to many religions and beliefs, including the religion in Thedas. The Judgement card often appears in readings where it represents resolution of past issues and the culmination of all that has been, and all that will be.
Another aspect of the card is meditation and coming to an epiphany through reflection. It is a card of absolution, putting the past behind you and being able to confront any personal ‘demons’ in order to clear the slate for a new way of thinking, living or being. There is no bias in the card, it is like the Justice card in its passion and actions, but it is not anywhere near as careless or blind.
To summarize the card, it is about the awakening and cleansing of the spirit. It is about having a clear heart, free of sin and regret and being able to resolve, then move on with a new-found knowledge and peace.
This is what happens when I get a day off from work. :P

Bull is not missing fingers, folks. His middle finger is lifted slightly, blocking view of his index, or something. […] Bull IS missing an eye. Bull is PROBABLY not very great at archery. Or billiards."
