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

The First Sacrifice Hawke notices a help wanted poster regarding a missing person and decides to pry into the matter. After speaking with Ghyslain it is learned that his wife Ninette has gone missing though Ghyslain seems more concerned with what others think of him rather than such disappearances. Conversations with the elf Jethann and Templar Emeric lead Hawke to the Dark Foundry where a mage is spotted running away as well as demons, bones, and Ninette’s ring. Findings are reported to Emeric and upon telling Ghyslain of the matter Hawke tells him it was found upon Ninette’s severed hand. Ghyslain returns the ring to Hawke as he does not wish to have something linking him to her death.

Blackpowder Promise An encounter with Javaris lead Hawke into Tal-Vashoth territory. It is here that he convinces one of the warriors to fight alongside. After the Tal-Vashoth are slain Hawke returns to the Arishok who states no such bargain was made with the dwarf. Hawke learns more of the situation during a conversation with Fenris and the Arishok. Javaris ends up paying Hawke before leaving the compound.

Enemies Among Us Rumor told of missing Templar and on a visit to the Gallows Hawke agrees to investigate the matter. An encounter with Cullen and an abomination gives Hawke a lead which leads to Idunna within the Blooming Rose, the woman murdered for use of blood magic on both Hawke and previously the abducted Templar. Keran is located but with no mage in the party able to check for possession Hawke remains wary for there is only the boy’s word to go on now. In the end Hawke persuades Cullen to allow Keran back into the order under supervision.

Wayward Son Hawke searches for Feynriel, a young man with a talent for magic, something his mother hid out of fear of losing her son to the Circle until his nightmares could no longer be ignored. During the search the slavers Danzig, Varian, and those with them are killed as Hawke refuses to strike bargains with them. Hawke sends Feynriel to the circle.

Act of Mercy Ser Thrask requests Hawek’s assistance in returning mages peacefully to the circle before more violent Templar show up and kill them. While Hawke agrees to go within the cavern it is not with the intent of helping the mages. After battling their leader, Decimus, Hawke gathers the still living mages and turns them over to Ser Karras and his band of Templar.

Shepherding Wolves Sister Petrice asks Hawke to lead the Qunari mage out of Kirkwall. Hawke ends up defending Ketojan when stating his own status as a mage.

The Deep Roads Expedition Hawke enters the Deep Roads with brothers Varric and Bartrand. Within Hawke takes on darkspawn and a dragon before locating an idol of pure red lyrium. Bartrand becomes unwilling to share the profits of the expedition and betrays them by taking the idol and locking Hawke and Varric in the Primeval Thaig. Hawke encounters the profane when searching for an escape, refuses to make a deal with the hunger demon that feeds on the profane, and battles an ancient rock wraith before escaping the Deep Roads. Upon Hawke’s return home Carver, having not been brought along, joins the Templar Order.

ACT 2 - 9:34

Prime Suspect With Emeric still investigating the killings, previously learned of within The First Sacrifice, Hawke is asked to speak with him over the matter. Hawke heads to Gascard DuPuis estate where numerous suspicious letters are found as well as a study littered with indicators of blood magic experimentation. Upon encountering DuPuis and the frightened girl with him Hawke decides to slay him. On Hawke’s return to the Gallows Moira instructs him to meet Emeric at night only to find that Emeric has been killed, likely for getting too close to finding out the truth of the murders.

Blackpowder Courtesy The Arishok requests Hawke help track down the dwarf, Javaris, who has remained persistent in acquiring the gaatlok recipe. It is revealed that Javaris has stolen a decoy to prevent theft of the gaatlot, the formula for saar-qamek a deadly poisonous gas which kills human upon inhalation. After stopping the poison from spreading Hawke kills Javaris.

Night Terrors Feynriel, the mage rescued from slavers during Wayword Son, has gone into a coma due to his talent. Arianni has called upon Hawke and Keeper Marethair to save her boy. Hawke enters the Fade to confront the demons fighting for control over Feynriel. Within the demons offer deals to Hawke’s companions who in turn betray them, leaving Hawke with fewer to help banish the demons. Despite these betrayals Hawke manages to fight back the demons and makes Feynriel Tranquil. His mother, Arianni, commits suicide by taking a poison. Those who betrayed Hawke are confronted after the matter.

All That Remains The serial killer rises once more as Hawke learns of Leandra’s disappearance from Gamlen and Bodahn upon returning to their estate. A sign of white lilies clueing Hawke in on just who has their mother. Upon telling Gamlen about the killer he goes to Lowtown to search for Leandra with Hawke following suit. Hawke intimidates the Urchin for information before following the blood trail to the Dark Foundry. Within the killer’s lair Hawke discovers notes and an odd painting that begin to explain what is happening. Hawke confronts the killer, Quentin, where they witness the results of his actions. Quentin is slain in battle and Leandra perishes. Following the events Hawke speaks with one of their companions.

Demands of the Qun With Hawke in tow Aveline heads to the Qunari Compound to speak with the Arishok. It is here Hawke rats out Isabela saying she has the relic, disagrees with Aveline over the elves saying that they were in the right to kill the guard before telling the Arishok that he would not turn the elves over to the guards. No matter Hawke’s thoughts the Arishok determines that he needs to defend the elves and he cannot leave Kirkwall without the stolen relic nor can he remain blind to the cities dysfunction. The Qunari lay siege to Kirkwall. Isabela does not return with the relic and in turn Fenris arranges a duel to the death between Hawke and the Arishok. Hawke kills the Arishok in single combat and the Qunari leave Kirkwall. Meredith declares Hawke, Champion of Kirkwall.

ACT 3 - 9:37

Showdown Hawke arrives in Hightown where Orsino is witnessed rallying a crowd against the Templar. Meredith comes to put a stop to this. Hawke sides with the Templars.

Legacy Targeted by a cartel hunting “the blood of the Hawke” Hawke and their party fight their way through a carta base filled with dwarves bound to the will of Corypheus before proceeding to an ancient Warden Prison. There Hawke encounters Larius who reveals the nature of Corypheus and the seals which bind him, the blood of a Hawke needed to break them as it was Malcolm who last strengthened the binds. Hawke and Larius encounter Janeka who wishes to free and control Corypheus with blood magic. Hawke sides with Larius and Janeka is slain as are the Grey Wardens with her. With their blood Hawke breaks the seals and after conversing with Larius and Corypheus Hawke and their companions kill the ancient magister. Unbeknownst to Hawke, Corypheus possesses Larius after they have left keeping the magister alive.

On The Loose Meredith requests that Hawke track down three dangerous apostates and bring them back to the circle dead or alive. Huon has turned to blood magic and is killed after stabbing his wife Nyssa in front of Hawke. Evelina is tracked to the sewers where she turns into an abomination and is slain by Hawke. Emile de Launcet is found in the Hanged Man and returned to the Templar without being allowed time to spend with Nella.

Best Served Cold Upon receiving a letter from Meredith Hawke goes to speak with her at the Gallows. Travel to the meeting place results in many dead Templar and Mage rebels before encountering Keran who informs Hawke of one of their companions being kidnapped. At the Wounded Coast Hawke refuses to side with the mages and Ser Thrask against Meredith. Grace becomes outraged and orders the mages to slay Hawke. Grace kills Ser Thrask and Hawke kills Grace along with any others who attack. Samson returns with Cullen who Hawke advises to kill them all resulting in Samson and the remaining mages to be arrested. Following the events Meredith gives Hawke the Hearth Shield.

The Last Straw The tensions between Knight-Commander Meredith and First Enchanter Orsino has reached the tipping point. Meredith accusing Orsino of harboring blood mages and wishes to search the tower. Anders destroys the Chantry though despite Hawke’s efforts to kill him he manages to escape with his injuries. Hawke sides with Meredith and helps kill the mages within the tower including Orsino. Meredith then calls for the Campion’s execution yet the Templar help Hawke to defeat her before declaring Hawke as the new Viscount.

Companions/Important Info

Hawke’s aggressive nature and mostly red choices netted them few friends as many ended up experiencing rivalry with the Champion. Their preferred companions for travel were Fenris, Varric, Aveline, and Sebastian. It is between these four that Hawke typically kept in their company, unless another companion was required for the task, with Fenris and Varric usually always found in their party.

Anders Escaped after destroying the Chantry despite injuries received from Hawke
Carver Joined the Templars and helped to defeat Meredith in the final battle
Isabela Fled after Hawke helped retrieve the relic and did not return
Merrill Did not stay to help Hawke in the final battle

Those who stayed to help Hawke in the final battle and became their party by the end of DA:II - Aveline, Fenris, Sebastian, and Varric

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.

Our story starts here...

Here Lies the Abyss (Read the thread)
After falling physically through the fade during the battle at Adamant the team fights of the fear demon. Hawke and Stroud do not make it out of the fade, and the Wardens are recruited to the Inquisition's cause.

Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts
The fate of Empress Celene, and in turn, all of Orlais, has been threatened. The Inquisition must intervene.
