Dragon Age Inquisition is nearing release and it seems as though Bioware has begun releasing short introductory videos for some of the characters in the game.
First to be introduced is Vivienne The Mage. Vivienne is the official imperial court enchanter and is someone not be taken lightly. The official Dragon Age site describes her as:
She is renowned as a fearsome woman who achieved her position through guile and deft political maneuvering.
Vivienne allows nothing to stand in the way of what she desires—not those who claim she is a social climber, not those who seek to restrict her power, not even her fellow mages who would conscript her into a rebellion with which she disagrees.
Vivienne is one of the nine companion characters in the game and a huge admirer of fashion, and she puts beauty above function. She’s always dressed in the finest silk and jewels one could find, and she actively participates in Orlesian politics.
Vivienne can rip apart her enemies using fire and ice. However, she doesn’t need these powers as she can also rip apart anyone who stands in her way verbally, politically and socially, making ice and fire seem like an easier option.
