Rebellion of the gentle soul by tishaia Rebellion of the gentle soul by tishaia
This is one, two-sided pendant.

I got captured by the story behind Anders/Justice and wanted to make something that would symbolize both his sides. What actually made me do this was the Codex entry about Anderfels. Let me quote:

"The Anderfels are a land of shocking extremes. It is the most desolate place in all the world, for two Blights have left great expanses of the steppes so completely devoid of life that corpses cannot even decay there--no insect or grub will ever reach them.

It is a land filled with wonders like the Merdaine, with its gigantic white statue of Our Lady carved into its face, her hands outstretched and bearing an eternal flame, or Weisshaupt Fortress, with its walls of living rock towering over the desolate plains below.

The Anders, too, are a people of extremes: The most devout priests and the most deadly soldiers, the poorest nation in the world and the most feared.

--From In Pursuit of Knowledge: Travels of a Chantry Scholar, by Brother Genitivi"

So, Anders already had two sides before the whole Justice thing. The Spirit only made them more obvious.

That's why this pendant is two sided.

Anders is a healer, a man with a kind heart and gentle soul who cares about others far more than about himself. On the gold, warm side there is a symbol of the Spirit Healer, and healing herbs. On the left there is Elfroot, (used to make various healing poultices), leaves of the Spindleweed (used to make potions like Life Ward Potion and Restoration Potion) on the right, and in the middle - Embrium with its distinctive red flowers.

Anders is also Justice, rebellious and angry about what is happening to the people in Thedas, ready to avenge their pain with violence, their deaths with killing, their slavery with war. On the silver, cold like steel side, there is the symbol of Vengence, a quote from the best fan-made video I have ever seen (go on the youtube NOW and search for Anders+hurricane ^^) and a flame.

"There is a fire inside
of this heart and a riot
about to explode into flames..."

Just like Anders and Justice, this pendant is ment to be worn with it's gold side out, but the other side, the dangerous and rebellious side is always there, even if it's usually hidden from view. . But for how long?

The pendant is two sided, made of polymer clay, 75x25mm. Handmade and one of a kind! :)

Of all of your amazing DA pendants, I think this is my favourite. I love the details, and especially the way that the pendant, itself, reflects Anders' two-sided nature. Such a beautiful piece. =)

Aye I love the contradiction in this character. Hope to get more LI if the same quality on DA3, thou a little more funny and less angsty chars would be welcome. Ah, at least a kind I dont want to murder and kiss wildly in the same time at the end ;E.

Yeah now that I think about it all of the romancable males are both on self-destruct mode....I MISS THE OLD ANDERS!!! I personaly think Bioware didn't give as much effort in DA2 as they did DAO, you can't talk to the other characters unless it's on your quest log and the recycled maps. Don;t get me wrong they did do better with char diolog and battles.

I missed the camp :<. Hope DA3 will be even better ;>. I will pass the time playing SWtOR and romancing all my companions there ;>. I was a little dissapointed when I saw that AGAIN all the romanceable guys are kind of smaller and no so bulky as the PC (what is with THAT Bioware?!) and the male romance companion for my future Sith Sorcerer is *a pirate*, space pirate in that case. Goooodddd, the cliche >.<. But then I heard his voice acting, and... HELL YEAH! ;D

hahaha I miss the camp too! What if they not only have their own home bases but they are also located in the Hanged Man (or other meeting place for DA3)
I'm too loyal to cheat on other characters real or animated (because I feel bat after...I have a overactive conscience). I will maybe flirt but and make jealous of each other.

tishaia Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2011   Artisan Crafter
Well, the main problem for me was that I couldn't talk to companions besides their quests, that was infuriating sometimes ;E.
Aye, I usually stick to one char during whole playthrough as well. Heh cant wait for any info on DA3. Mut with SWtOR coming in a few days, and ME3 next year, wi have long wait :<.

I also can't wait for DA3 I wonder how Anders 'action' has effected the rest of Thedas or if we will stay in Ferelden or the Marches, but actually go to Tivinter or Niveria. They should put the best of DAO and DA2 together and they should think of DA3 as to redeem themselves after what happened in DA2.

tishaia Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011   Artisan Crafter
I don't think that DA2 was so bad after all. The dungeons where irritating but have no impact on the story. I got so much problem with no-camp-ness ;D. In DA1 camp made you more attached to your companions somehow. You could see them every time you went to rest and you could think about who would be the best for the next mission. In DA2 you could for example just stay out of Alienage and do not see Merril at all.
