OC Interview : Amala
Can you introduce yourself?
I am Amala, a member of the Shyhold staff.
What is your gender identity, orientation, and relationship status?
Oh! Well, I see myself as a woman but have enjoyed the company of both men and women. I am officially single (wink wink)
Where and when were you born?
I was born in Ferelden 28 years ago.
What is your weapon of choice and fighting style?
Knowledge ! And I know how to use a dagger. A deadly combination.
And finally, are you happy?
You know what ? I think I am.
Family and friends
What is your family like? What is your relationship like with them?
My family is all over the place. My mother died in childbirth years ago, and my father has been raising us with the help of other elves from the alienage. All my sisters work as maid or servants for some lords or other as far as I know. I’m very close to the youngest, Risa. I had two brothers but one died during the Fifth Blight and the other is… What’s the next question, please ?
Have you ever run away from home?
Haha. Did I ever want to get away from six other siblings and an overprotective dad ? No, of course not, perish the thought.
“Would you want to get married or have children?
I uh… Maybe, but someone in my situation shouldn’t think too much ahead.
Do you secretly hate any of your friends?
Hate no. Sometimes wishes they would mind their own business ? Hmmmm yes.
What friend knows everything about you?
That would be Ninette, we share out quarters together and she began working at Skyhold at the same time I did. I swear, you chose the wrong person to do this interview, she knows me more than I do myself !
Asked by fans
Can you read and write? Did you go to school?
I do and I thank my father every waking moment for forcing us to learn to read and write. I went to a private school in order to serve the best houses in Orlais and get good recommendations.
The scariest prediction you made that later came true?
That my brother Fayne was going to cause nothing but trouble… I would have given anything in the whole world to be proven wrong.
What is something you embarrassingly realised too late?
I apparently snore very loudly when I sleep, so Ninette tells me...
Do you have mental or physical problems?
My back hurts like hell, not a good sign for a maid like me. And my shoulder sometimes dislocates itself, charming image, no ?
What’s your main goal right now?
Helping out the Inquisition in any way that I can.
Drink or eat?
Oooh food! But then the wine…. but the cheese… but the ale...and the cakes…
Cats or dogs?
Did I say I was born in Ferelden ? I had no choice but to like dogs. I do love those stray cats that live in Skyhold, which makes the winter less harsh to live through. And they can sit on my lap without breaking my knees, which is nice.
Optimist or pessimist?
There’s enough pessimists out there, don’t you think ?
Sassy or sarcastic?
You tell me!
HAVE YOU EVER:
Been caught sneaking out?
I have, but it only made me better at it! At the sneaking part, not the uh, getting caught part. You got that.
Broken a bone?
Oh yeah broke my shoulder once, a horse ran right through me. The cats and conversation with Warden Blackwall are the only reasons I get close to the stables...
Did you get flowers?
I did, and still do sometimes ! Sometimes it’s genuine and sometimes it’s just someone trying to gain access to the keep. I’ve long learned to spot the difference.
You pretended to laugh at a joke you did not get?
Haha that’s what my whole job is about !
This is so much fun and actually really useful to get content for OCs ! The credit for Amala’s faceclaim goes to the wonderful Joanne Froggatt and her character in Dark Angel.
Should I tag ? I feel I should tag
