Toronto’s biggest street party is raging. Church Street is a mix of unity, unabashed nudity, and massive doses of ecstasy and cocaine. Happy world pride!
To coincide with the worldwide celebration of human rights, Bioware has revealed that Dorian, the mage in the upcoming game Dragon Age: Inquisition, is gay. Dorian’s homosexuality is used to add depth to the character as it is the reason he is given the status of pariah due to his culture having the Spartan-like values of perfection and adherence to the cultural norms.
The character’s creator, David Gaitor, in an interview with DragonAge.com, revealed the sexual preference of the proud mage, saying, “Dorian is gay… he is, in fact, the first fully gay character I have had the opportunity to write.”
What is significant about the news is that it is the first time a gay character will be playable in a Bioware title. They have featured gay characters in their Mass Effect and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic titles, but they were all NPC’s and thus not playable. This is the first time Bioware will allow gamers to step into the shoes of a gay character and control him.
Bioware has revealed Dorian is a mage of the powerful Tevinter Imperium bloodline and excelled at magic from an early age. He is quick-witted and confident, matching his magical prowess with a silver tongue.
Dragon Age: Inquisition will be available October 7th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
