Bethany Hawke (Iconic)
A young apostate who has been unusually sheltered all her life, despite living in Chantry Lands. The poster child "Good" apostate
Female Human Apostate (Force Mage) 13
Alignment: Neutral Good
Deity (The Prophet Andraste)
This assumes neither of the two major paths and instead took the third option
+2 Spirit, +2 Mana Regeneration
In the ancient days before the darkspawn, when dwarven cities wound through the roots of all the earth, House Valdasine single-handedly kept the empire supplied with lyrium.
One day the mining family shut the doors of their thaig. They spoke not to their noble patrons, nor their king, and not even a visiting Paragon. Days passed in silence before the doors to Valdasine Thaig opened. Anxious partners discovered it empty. Not one soul remained—no bodies and no sign of what had happened.
House Valdasine only left a staff of strange metal behind. It looked like lyrium and chilled one’s heart like a remembered sorrow. The king sealed the staff inside the thaig, and no dwarf ever ventured there again.

Vestments of Sacrifice (robes)
+5 Mana regeneration, +7 Healing by this character
The Vestments of Sacrifice is a replica of the robe worn by Grey Warden Neriah, a mage who fought in the Second Blight’s final battle in Starkhaven. According to legend, she threw herself in front of a darkspawn emissary to protect her lover, Corin. Neriah’s sacrifice saved Corin’s life, which was instrumental in ending the Blight for it was Corin’s blade that struck the Archdemon Zazikel down.
The original robe was displayed at the Circle of Magi in Antiva for many years, and I count myself among the lucky to have seen Neriah’s robe before it was destroyed in a fire. I constructed this replica from my notes and sketches, and it is as accurate a copy as one could achieve. I have even gone to great lengths to recreate the enchantments placed on the original robes.
The recreation of this garment brings me great joy and fulfillment. I hope it brings the same to one of your order. Please accept this gift, humbly presented, as a token of appreciation for all the Grey Wardens have done for Thedas.

The Lucky Stone (ring)
+1 to Attribute (sub state) of choice)
This old stone, set in a golden ring, has been an aid and companion to dozens of adventurers across innumerable years. Its trip to Ferelden was long and convoluted. Some say it has a life of its own.
Embri Many Pockets (Belt)
10% Resistance to all elemental Damage
Embri of Gwaren, an elven mage of limited talent who volunteered to become one of the Tranquil, proved herself a talented enchanter—if absent-minded. She kept an array of magical ingredients on her belt at all times, and eventually the belt itself became magical. Embri died of lyrium poisoning many years later, but the enchanted belt remains.
Pearl of the Anointed (Amulet)
+1 to all Stats if worn from level 1-20, +2 for level 21-30
This amulet once belonged to Emperor Kordillus Drakon of Orlais, “the Anointed”. The amulet was torn from Drakon’s neck in one of the many battles he fought in order to spread the Chant of Light throughout Thedas.
The Lion’s Paw (Boots)
+1 to Dodge Bonus, +2 to Dodge bonus against Missil attacks
Lady Rosamund, an infamous outlaw of the Korcari Wilds, wore these regal boots. Through clever ambushes and surprising tactics, she spent decades preying on merchants and eluding the king’s guards until one day she simply disappeared. Some still brave the Wilds in search of her hidden hoard of treasure.
