Question: Hey there, here's my request, how would the DA:I companions and advisors react to an Inquisitor that is an alchemist? ( like they can control the elements with a circle of power, as in FMA) i think that this would be interesting. (written response if you can) Thank you for doing this, i'm glad you are back.
(Side note: Mod Mandy here, I love this request FMA was a favorite of mine for a long time.)
Cassandra would be very interested in this ability that the Inquisitor has. She would ask many questions about the technicalities of it all, but her interest would likely stay solely with her curiosity.
He loves it. This is something that you do not see everyday. He would ask questions of how it worked, and would definitely ‘borrow’ whatever garment of the Inquisitor’s the circles were sketched on. He himself would not try to learn just out of comfort, but he would try to learn what he could about all other aspects of it.
If this was something that people besides the Inquisitor could do, she would have definitely heard of it, but if this is a sole specialty of the Inquisitor, then she would be interested to compare it to how her understanding of magic works, but beyond that, she wouldn’t care much about it.
He thinks it is dope. He is most likely to be the one most curious about learning if he could do something similar. He would always try to convince the Inquisitor to try more reckless things with their Alchemy. Not that its always a bad suggestion, but some of his ideas certainly catch the Inquisitor off guard.
He doesn’t necessarily have that much of an opinion on it. He has a respect for the Inquisitor to be able to wield such a unique ability, but he himself is fine with admiring from a distance and not getting too close to any unusual destruction that could be caused.
She is the most wary of it, to her this Alchemy is far too similar to magic for her to want to get close to it. But if she can be convinced that it is not magic, she may suggest some ideas for pranks that would include the Alchemy, for no one would expect it. Other than that she isn’t the biggest fan.
He finds this new, as he sees it, science-magic amalgamation as an unexpected curiosity. He would ask many technical questions about how it all works and about the limits of what one could do with such a power. He would be the first to bring up human transmutation and whether or not it was possible, upon learning about the complications with that though, he would likely drop the subject.
Well, he would also be interested in the technical aspects of how it all works, but he would definitely ask the most absurd questions about how it works as well. He too would be interested in the possibility of a ‘necromantic’ use, but in the end would stick with his own magic ability. He would continuously check in that the Inquisitor is “sure it’s not magic based?” even despite the lack in a connection it has with the fade.
He would look on in wide eyed wonder at the marvel of alchemy and how the Inquisitor uses it. He would always love to just watch the Inquisitor make artistic sculptures with their alchemy.
He will easily accept that there is a lot in this world and that a lot of what he doesn’t know may cause him a headache if he tries too hard to figure it out. If you catch him on a good day, he will gladly take up the opportunity to see some of the less destructive things that can be done with alchemy, but would otherwise leave it to the Inquisitor in hopes that nothing got too out of hand.
She enjoys seeing what the Inquisitor can do with this ability, though she would always refer to it as a talent. She would love to see the extent that could be done with alchemy and would be interested, were it not for the chaotic state of things, in learning a touch of it for herself.
When she was younger she would have been in awe of it, but with how everything is not and how everything has played out, she acknowledges this skill as an advantage in the current state of things. But behind all of that, she does hold a sense of marvel at all of it.
