I don't like the way origins characters make you feel like your created character isn't as interesting or cool. I would rather they just be companions and not be made to feel like I have to play an origins character (like in DOS2) because they got all the flavor and a bigger budget. If Larian gave as much love to created characters and didn't make them feel like empty-headed sex dolls, then maybe this wouldn't be a problem but that would take a lot of resources and I don't think they'll bother.
