Just wanted to know what this community thought about (your) Hawke's interactions with his/her siblings.
Way back on my first playthrough I didn't think too much about Carver's death. My thoughts were "clearly he is an uninteresting side character like all the other poor saps who can't survive a Bioware prologue." But after two playthroughs as a mage, I think his story is far more interesting than Bethany's.
Since my Hawke generally goes the "friends with EVERYBODY!" route, Bethany just sorta fell into the big pile of friendship. She just doesn't do much, other than her shadowed frame being a constant reminder that I have no healers except Anders: Angst Edition.
I felt that Carver had much better growth as a character, especially if ***you have him join the Grey Wardens.*** Seeing him go from hating you to standing with you at the end felt a lot more satisfying than "Oh yeah Bethany, guess you can rejoin the party now." Though maybe I'm just biased because Mage Hawke has all those bonus interactions with people.
Now don't get the wrong idea, I like both Bethany and Carver, I just like the latter better. What are your opinions? I wish we had an option so they both survived, but that's never gonna happen.
