Because my favourite mage-hating elf’s voice actor is now also my favourite elvish regent lord’s voice actor, and while Fenris just wants to kill mages and Lor’themar is flipping benches over their mistreatment… idk, it’s just a lot of mages for anyone to handle.

I might be biased from years of dealing with frost mages :/
(Hearing Gideon Emery do belf classics like “Do not touch the hair” is pretty awesome.)
