'''Aeducan''' is a [[dwarf]] who rose up to become a Paragon and [[Dwarven royalty|king]] of the Dwarven Empire by saving his [[race]] which was at the brink of collapse. He is also the founder of [[House Aeducan]].

Originally born to the [[Warrior caste]], Aeducan was a man of little note. According to the [[Memories]] Aeducan never entered a single [[Provings|Proving]] and never sought to elevate his place among the Warrior caste. He spent most of his years prior to the [[First Blight]] fighting skirmishes in the [[Deep Roads]], keeping them free from surface bandits, content to live quietly with his wife named Anika<ref>[[Codex entry: The Blights]]</ref> and their daughters.<ref name="shield">[[Codex entry: House Aeducan, Shield of Orzammar]]</ref>

When the Blight began in earnest, sometime after -395 [[Ancient Age|Ancient]], it caught the dwarven empire in the midst of a vicious inter-[[house]] war. Most of the Warrior caste was caught up in the feuding, for as word of attacks poured in, each great house demanded that the army be sent to defend their [[thaig]], and no house would agree to sacrifice their own holdings for the safety of any others. The Assembly was so utterly tied up with the infighting that the [[darkspawn]] spread, unchecked, to the gates of Orzammar and capital of the empire.<ref name="shield"/>

In the chaos, Aeducan grudgingly took command of the armies. He enlisted the aid of the [[Mining caste]] to collapse overrun passages, called upon the [[Smith caste]] to supply them with arms, and bypassed the Assembly and the [[Noble caste]] entirely. Furthermore, according to a [[Codex entry: The Blights|letter]] he sent to his wife he witnessed with his own eyes the great darkspawn horde moving to the surface led by the [[Archdemon]] [[Dumat]].<ref name="shield"/>
