I get that the real world answer to "where are all of our teammates" is availability of the voice actors, but why don't we get lore explanations about where the important characters are when they don't appear on-screen?
I mean Rox is Charr and there was a Charr civil war! Her involvement in that would have been captivating! At least tell us where she is!
Where has Canach been during the entire Icebrood Saga?
Marjory was with us in episode 1, where did she go?
Taimi? Gorrik? I don't think we hear from either of those 2 throughout the entire Saga.
The Commander has definitely been portrayed as a caring individual, especially towards members of Dragon's Watch. So not keeping up with our friends, keeping up communication with them, or at the very least, simply knowing where they are, makes zero sense for the character, and really disrupts the flow of the story for me.
