Apostate & Seeker

Conversations like this reinforce why Cassandra and Solas are my favorite companions in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Cassandra: Solas, if you do not mind me asking, what do you believe in?
Solas: Cause and effect. Wisdom as its own reward, and the inherent right of all free willed people to exist
Cassandra: That is not what I meant
Solas: I know. I believe the elven gods existed, as did the old gods of Tevinter. But I do not think any of them were gods, unless you expand the definition of the word to the point of absurdity. I appreciate the idea of your Maker, a god that does not need to prove his power. I wish more such gods felt the same.
Cassandra: You have seen much sadness in your journeys, Solas. Following the Maker might offer some hope.
Solas: I have people, Seeker. The greatest triumphs and tragedies this world has known can all be traced to people.

She maintains her faith, is compassionate and wants to genuinely help others, but she isn’t pushing. He believes in gray areas, grounded, realistic, and firmly in people. They’re two different individuals, with very distinct approaches, but you’d want both on your side with such a devastating series of events happening.
