can I just say that I am so happy Cole seems to hang out in Skyhold’s tavern.
he isn’t in the dungeon, he isn’t lurking under the stairs, he’s not in the corner of some quiet room which is in a state of disrepair, he’s not creeping in the basement
think about the poor lost kid he used to be like, living in the dark bowels of the White Spire, alone, never going outside, reacting to people like a wary animal, afraid
now he spends his time in the warmth and clamour of a populated tavern. yeah he’s quietly in the background, people-watching, but he’s there, there with people and noise and merriment and singing and light
