the fifth blight

hero of ferelden: Ivandriel Tabris

Though not generally well-known outside of the Denerim Alienage, the members of the Tabris line appear to have an unorthodox reputation as troublemakers or rebels and are often lacking the servile demeanor typical of city elves. The Tabris family seems to be better off than most in the alienage, and several people remark on the quality of the match Cyrion was able to acquire for his child.

When Tabris' wedding day is sabotaged by the local Lord's son, the Hero sets out on a quest to save his family and fiancé, only to find himself by the end of it all conscripted into the Wardens.

After the failed battle at Ostagar, the Hero and their companions journey across Ferelden to gain support through the Warden treaties.

Broken Circle The right of annulment is not fulfilled, and the Warden saves the circle by clearing out the tower of abominations and demons. Uldred is killed, and First Enchanter Irving is saved. They recruit the mages using the Warden treaties.

Nature of the Beast Deep within the Brecilian Forest live the dalish elves. Haunted by a werewolf curse, the Warden seeks out Witherfang at Keeper Zathrian's request. Did not broker peace and sided with Zathrian, killing Witherfang and the other mutated humans.

Saving Redcliffe The Warden helps to fortify and defend Redcliffe from the hoard of undead. Connor is killed and Isolde survives.

Paragon of her Kind In Orzammar the Warden completes tasks that ensures Bhelen's rule, joins forces against Caridin and helps Branks uncover the dark secrets of the anvil. With a King now on the throne, the Dwarves are recruited using the treaties. Bhelen kills Harromont.

Urn of Sacred Ashes Warden and company travel to the small, secluded town of Haven in search of the Urn of Sacred Ashes. When found, the Warden defiles the ashes and Arl Eamon is revived. Now recovered, and troubled by what has happened, he organises a Landsmeet in Denerim.

The Landsmeet The Warden faces Loghain in a duel and executes him for his crimes and Alistair is crowned King but rules alone. Before the final battle the Warden completes the dark ritual with Morrigan.

The Final Battle At the final battle the Warden lands the finishing blow but survives due to completing the ritual with Morrigan. With Ferelden saved from the 5th blight they are given the title of Warden Commander of Ferelden.

Awakening The Warden is given command of Vigil's Keep, helped by the Orlesian Warden Commander. When Vigil's Keep is attacked, the Warden Commander orders that the Keep is protected.

The Architect turns out to be a sentient darkspawn, looking for the Warden's help to free other darkspawn from the hive mind. The Warden lets the Architect live. Nathaniel is executed.

Witch Hunt The Warden uses their resources to track down Morrigan, despite the witch's request not to follow her. The Warden stabs Morrigan, and as she falls back through the eluvian the Warden does not follow her.

Companions/Important Info

Sten, despite being offered freedom, refused to follow the Warden. Sten was left in the cage and therefore perished as the Blight rolled through Lothering.
Leliana was left knocked out cold in the Temple of Sacred Ashes after she turned on the Warden for defiling the ashes of Andraste.

battle for kirkwall

champion of kirkwall: Asmodeus Hawke

Around the year 9:30 Dragon, the Fifth Blight has just begun and, following their victory at Ostagar, the darkspawn fell upon the village of Lothering. The Hawke family was among the last to escape alive. Hawke's mother Leandra suggests that they flee to Kirkwall, where her younger brother Gamlen holds the Amell estate. Gamlen sells them into indentured servitude as smugglers so that they could earn their way into the city. x

ACT 1 - 9:31

Act of Mercy Ser Thrask requests Hawke's help to return runaway mages peacefully to the circle before more violent templars come to kill them. Hawke hands over the mages to Ser Karras and the templars.

Shepherding Wolves Sister Petrice asks Hawke to lead a chained and collared Qunari out of Kirkwall to freedom. Defended Ketojan from the Qunari.

Wayward Son Hawke searches for Feynriel, a young man with a talent for magic, a fact that his mother hid out of fear of losing him to the Circle until his nightmares could no longer be ignored. Hawke sends Feynriel to the Dalish.

The Deep Roads Expedition Hawke enters the Deep Roads with brothers Varric and Bartrand. Hawke's sibling, Carver Hawke, does not go with them and instead joins the Templar order.

ACT 2 - 9:34

All That Remains Hawke's mother is kidnapped by a bloodmage. Gascard is taken along to find Leandra and is intimated out of helping Quentin (the killer) when they find him. Lenadra is killed, and Gascard is eventually killed in Darktown by Hawke.

Blackpowder Courtesy The Arishok requests Hawke's help in tracking down a dwarf, Javaris, who was persistent in acquiring the gaatlok (an explosive powder). Instead Javaris has stolen the formula for saar-qamek, a poisonous gas which kills humans upon inhalation. Hawke kills Javaris.

Night Terrors Feynriel, the apostate mage rescued from slavers during Wayward Son, has gone into a coma due to his particular talent. His mother, Arianni, has called upon the assistance of Hawke and Keeper Marethari to save him. In order to wake him up, Hawke must enter the Fade to confront the demons struggling for control over Feynriel. Hawke chooses to make Feynriel tranquil.

Demands of the Qun Hawke helps Isabela retrieve the stolen relic, but Isabela leaves and does not return. The Qunari lay siege to Kirkwall, and Hawke kills the Arishok.

ACT 3 - 9:37

On the Loose Meredith requests that Hawke track down 3 dangerous apostates (Huon, Evelina, and Emile de Launcet) and bring them back dead or alive. Emile is sent back to the circle, the others are handed over to Meredith.

Showdown Hawke arrives in Hightown and sees Orsino rallying a crowd against the templars. Hawke sides with the Templars.

The Last Straw The tension between Knight-Commander Meredith Stannard and First Enchanter Orsino has reached the tipping point and Meredith wishes to lock up all the mages and search the tower from top to bottom, accusing Orsino of harboring blood mages. Anders destroys the Kirkwall Chantry. Hawke sides with Meredith. After the mages are killed Meredith calls for the Champion's execution, and she is also killed.

Companions/Important Info

Due to Hawke's mostly red choices, and siding with the Templars, they experienced a lot of rivalry from their companions. Note, just because a companion stayed to fight does not mean that they were friends with Hawke.

Anders escaped after destroying the Chantry in act 3
Aveline stayed to help Hawke fight at the end of act 3
Carver joined the Templars and helped defeat Meredith at the end of act 3
Fenris stayed to help Hawke fight at the end of act 3, the only companion to have a friendship with Hawke rather than rivalry
Isabela fled after Hawke helped her retrieve the relic and did not return
Merrill did not stay to help fight at the end of act 3
Sebastian stayed to help Hawke fight at the end of act 3
Varric stayed to help Hawke fight at the end of act 3

Party by the end of DA:II - Hawke, Fenris, Aveline, Varric, Sebastian and Carver.

the inquisition

inquisitor: vela lavellan

The Lavellan clan is a dalish clan that wanders the northern Free Marches. They have been noted to be different than most dalish clans as they openly trade with humans whilst also trying to preserve their own culture. They respect the humans they deal with and are much more approachable than many other clans. x

As the mage-templar war spills into the countryside, clan Lavellan is forced to move. Worried about the conflict, Keeper Deshanna sends her First to Haven to spy on the Conclave that has been gathered in an attempt to stop the fighting. But disaster strikes, and the Temple of Sacred Ashes is destroyed in a massive explosion. Lavellan is the only survivor, and the mark that has appeared on their left hand turns out to have the power to close the fade rifts that have opened up all over Ferelden and Orlais.

The Threat Remains After being given the title Herald of Andraste after calming the Breach, the Herald and survivors retreat to Haven to plan next steps. Cassandra declares the Inquisition reborn. They travel to the Hinterlands and help deal with the rebel mages and out of control templars, making the roads safer for travelers, and helping those caught in the crossfire as much as possible.

Dennet and his horses, as well as Mother Giselle, are recruited to the cause. After visiting Val Royeauz the Herald has a decision to make: reach out to First Enchanter Fiona to help seal the Breach for good, or turn to the Seekers for help.

In Hushed Whispers The Herald decides to reach out to First Enchanter Fiona, but things get complicated when time magic and Venatori are involved. After fighting through a future that involved an Elder One and red lyrium, the Herald returns back to their own time and defeats Alexius. The mages are offered an alliance.

In Your Heart Shall Burn With the mages offered an alliance they help the Herald close the breach. Celebrations are cut short as an unknown force attacks Haven, forcing the Herald to create an avalanche that buries the town in snow. The Elder One escapes, and the Herald just barely. They make it back to the group and Solas shows the Herald the way to Skyhold. When they arrive the Herald is given the title of Inquisitor.

With their relocation, the Inquisitor and their companions plan the next move.

From the Ashes Varric reveals that he knows someone who might be able to help with this 'Elder One' business. His contact turns out to be Hawke, the Champion of Kirkwall, and they tell the Inquisitor that this Elder One, Corypheus, has already been killed by them once before.

Here Lies the Abyss Hawke tells the Inquisitor that they have a warden friend who might be able to help. In Crestwood they meet with warden Stroud, who tells them how Corypheus is using blight magic to make wardens hear The Calling. They travel to a Tevinter ritual tower in the Western Approach to find the wardens using blood magic to bind demons. They realise that they must travel to Adamant Fortress to stop the grey wardens from this madness.
