class and origin

 I was wondering if anyone else let's their class and subclass determine what their origin story is as well (or vica versa).  With mages the origin story and class is set but for warriors and rogues it is wide open.  With that said it seems like some origins seem to suggest what class goes along with them.   And when I make a specific warden their class and subclass I choose is affected by their origin.   For instance when I make a dw rogue it is a city elf, sword and shield warrior is a human noble, axe (or mace) and shield warror is a dwarf noble, 2 handed axe or maul warrior is a dwarf commoner.  I havn't played as an archer but if I ever do it will most likely be a dalish rogue archer.  Now I notice some origins seem to suggest a class to go along with them though the player is free to completely ignore that.  For instance the dwarf commoner is suggested to be a dw rogue or warrior but as soon as I can I equip my dcs with a big axe and don't look back and I justify it by saying he was muscle hired by the carta to intimidate people and he learned how to fight by being a brawler in dust town.

Does anyone else have their origin effect their class, do you go by what is suggested or do you just do your own thing?  If you do your own thing instead do you come up with your own roleplaying reasons like I do with my DC?

I prefer human noble (female of course) rogue class double weapons. Although the other character races and origins are each cool in their own way, you can't really get the ultimate storyline to pass on to Dragon Age II without female human noble, at least it seems to me. I looked it up, and human noble is the default character origin. LOL I guess what I mean to say is that you can't really marry the character Allistair (as a female) unless you're a human noble or go the bad route and put Queen Anora on the throne. As for class, I usually prefer rogue character on Dragon Age Origins because you can get way more gold throughout the game, although it really doesn't matter if you have hack mods to modify the game, like I have.

If you play the Mage Origins story, then the warden is related to the Hawke's via mothers cousin. The defaults Daylen/Solana Amell...

I usually play human female Noble as well, double weapons, but as a warrior instead. I've tried to do the Alistair romance so I can be Queen with him, but it's so hard to turn away Leliana. She was my first romance in DA:O and I always feel the need to return to her.
