i was working on that sebastian redesign that i posted a little while ago when i suddenly wondered if starkhaven—or even more specifically, the vael family—had some sort of family crest or symbol, like the amells. searching the internet brought up almost nothing, so i went digging through the DAII game assets.
turns out there is a starkhaven crest. and a whole bunch of others i’ve never seen before. so i decided to take the raw files and do something useful with them.
these symbols were taken directly from the DAII game art assets folder. most likely these are not all the symbols that show up in the game, but i don’t have access to the legacy and mark of the assassin DLC assets since those files are encrypted. a number of these are also probably not official (canonically) either. my guess is that some of them were concepts that later got changed/refined or just scrapped. they’re still fairly interesting to look at though.
there are probably a number of symbols some of you may recognize (especially if you’re the diligent type to go shifting through the dragon age wiki or bioware’s blog). i left them in there regardless, for those who may have not seen these before.
if you would like to have the crests/symbols as individual files, all at larger res, you can download them [HERE]!
