the Origins PC and companions are genuinely the funniest group of people if you actually think about it, like you got:
The Warden who literally got their job yesterday and was put in charge of saving the world for some reason
the second-most-recent warden who immediately pushed all the responsibility on you and REALLY doesn’t want to tell you who his daddy is because that would mean more responsibility he does not want
this random swamp witch who’s mother may or may not be Baba Yaga but she personally has never been anywhere larger than a small village and does NOT understand human interactions also she can turn into a spider
a bisexual nun who you met in a bar who told you that God told her to tag along with you but actually she used to be a spy and has murdered a lot of people, but also she assures you that she never took vows of chastity so she’s dtf
a grown up child soldier giant man who you got out of a cage for some reason who spends half the time negging you and talking in circles but is apparently into that and also the only thing he likes about your country is cookies
an assassin that was hired to kill you and immediately started flirting with you the moment he failed at doing that and you just thought it was a good call to let him tag along
an elderly woman who has assigned herself the role of group grandmother, really doesn’t want you to fuck or talk about griffins, and also she’s possessed. let’s be real, she probably regrets being in this group
a dwarf who’s wife ended up being a psychopath and a lesbian, so he just decided to skip town with you
a magical construct that has spent the last 30 years getting shit on by birds and just is REALLY pissed off by that
A dog that is able to comprehend human language and uses that ability solely to beg for treats
And the optional:
Literally the guy that you have been fighting against the entire fucking game

So. Couple of things:
1) King Calenhad drank dragon blood to become a Reaver and some of that power was passed down through the generations, to the point where Arishok!Sten tells King!Alistair that he has the blood of dragons in his veins. (Also Sten calls Alistair kadan and that's not important I'm just still squealing about it.)
2) Vashoth have enhanced senses, particularly enhanced senses of smell, which dovetails nicely with 3.
3) The Iron Bull really wants to fuck dragons. This is not news, of course, but seriously in the game if you become a Reaver and are in a relationship with him, he straight up goes all googly-eyed horny for you because you drank dragon blood and smell like a dragon.
In light of these facts, I think it's only logical that if Bull is with you for In Hushed Whispers then he would definitely be DTF on sight with King Alistair who marches his ass into Redcliffe to chew out the mages for Doing A Stupid with Tevinter, smelling like goddamn dragon blood. I'm just saying. We were robbed of the Iron Bull very publically getting scent-drunk and making a pass at the King of fucking Ferelden.
