Dude, if the OP suggestion is taken, Astarion would be the default character. All that is being asked is the ability to edit him into something more amenable to our own individual sense of asthetics
Yeah but that would leave me without the ability to play as Wyll and Shadowheart. I want to play them too.
I'M sorry but Larian is doing something better then what you guys suggest.
No it doesn't. This suggestions take nothing out of the game, it only adds further option for those who wish to pursue it. The origin characters don't disappear, they simply become unlocked so players can alter them to suit their own tastes. Vanilla is perfectly valid
