& if hints we’ve had about ancient elves being basically the same as human Cole* are correct
Then are there spirits of the Void too? Are they what Andruil was hunting?
Darkspawn = Void spirits taking physical form just like ancient elves possibly = Fade spirits taking physical form?
Maybe the Void has its own physical part just like Thedas is meant to be the Fade’s physical part, and people (= darkspawn) live there?
What happens to mortals when they die? All Solas says is ‘not what happens to spirits’, which is highly unhelpful. Corypheus, Architect etc could have ‘died’, gone to the Void, then created new physical bodies? That’s probably a bit convoluted esp given they had to do it in a few months maximum, probably more like a couple of days
* ‘Ancient elves were tied to the Fade’; Cole in Trespasser, possibly on Solas, ‘He didn’t want a body, but she asked him to come’; references in Trespasser to individual elves being sundered; Dalish myths about Elgar’nan + Elgar’nan means ‘Spirit of Vengeance’; Mythal reduced to a wisp and possessing Flemeth, etc, etc
Obligatory question mark to turn on answer box?
