If someone actually asks me Sten, I am going to feel very awkward due to the whole family members named Sten thing.
…OGHREN. Well then!
How I feel about this character:
I like him despite his creepy comments, and I kind of want to hug him, provided he cleans up a bit first. I have a lot of sad feelings about Branka leaving him for the Deep Roads, and I think it affected him more than he lets on. He does not talk about his feelings much, but they are in there somewhere. Also I want to braid his beard a lot.
All the people I ship romantically with this character:
I really only ship him with Felsi, since that Branka thing did not end up so well, but I also really only ship him with Felsi if he can straighten out, behave himself and be responsible and a good parent.
My non-romantic OTP for this character:
Him and my favourite Warden have this kind of surrogate family thing going on. They are somehow very good friends, and she views him as her smelly, odd uncle. They even hug sometimes, and he pretends he does not like it, but deep inside he thinks it is rather sweet of her. I wonder if they braid each others’ hair/beard in secret.
My unpopular opinion about this character:
I am not sure if I have one, actually. I, uhm, am a little disturbed by how often he sounds like he is about to cough up a ball of snot, though. I think that ought to count as unpopular on account of being icky, and icky is not popular.
One thing I wish would happen/had happened with this character in canon:
