First "Fully Gay" Male Love Interest Revealed

First "Fully Gay" Male Love Interest Revealed - Dragon Age: Inquisition - MMORPG.com

The Dragon Age: Inquisition site has been updated with a new post to introduce fans of the upcoming title to Dorian, a Tevinter mage who is the first "fully gay" character to be included in the series. The site includes an interview with writer David Gaider to talk about Dorian's contributions to the overall party and how the decision to include a male-only love interest adds a new dimension to the game.

[DG]: Dorian is gay—he is, in fact, the first fully gay character I've had the opportunity to write. It added an interesting dimension to his back story, considering he comes from a place where "perfection" is the face that every mage puts on and anything that smacks of deviancy is shameful and meant to be hidden. Dorian's refusal to play along with that façade is seen as stubborn and pointless by his family, which has contributed to his status as a pariah.

[DA]: Are you happy with how his character turned out?

[DG]: I suppose this aspect of Dorian will make him controversial in some corners, but I was glad to include it. It made writing Dorian a very personal experience for me, and I'm hopeful that will make him seem like a fully realized character to fans in the end.
