Oh shit. The other origins weren’t like this? It did seem like ... intense as hell https://medium.com/@dialacina/youve-a-lot-of-nerve-knife-ears-indigenous-trauma-and-the-female-city-elf-in-dragon-age-origins-ad4da5a8cdc1
And I mean. Literally everybody wants you to know you’re beneath them. It’s universal. Do other characters get this?
@sophia I've not read the piece yet mind you, but at the time it felt a little eye-rolly to me because I got the impression they were trying very hard to get across the point that it's a Mature game for Mature Gamers etc
(I did play as the female city elf but it's been a few years and I remember very little of the game other than Dwarves saying "sodding" with pronounced American accents feeling extremely out of place)
it's been a while since I've played, but not that I recall. I was a wood elf or whatever, so I still got some of the elf/women stuff but it didn't feel as bad. iirc dwarves are also treated kinda bad but since they're more sovereign the humies are a little more friendly
