Ameridan was the last Inquisitor of the original Inquisition before its dissolution shortly after the creation of the Chantry.

Background

He was a renowned dragon hunter and a close friend of the first Orlesian Emperor Kordilius Drakon, who also formalized the Chantry in Thedas. Sources describe Ameridan as both a man of passion and a man of faith. He is said to have disappeared in the final years of the Ancient Age, shortly after the Inquisition split into the Templar Order and the Seekers of Truth. It is unknown what happened to him, with some speculating that he deliberately vanished from public scrutiny to not overshadow the newly formed Templars. Despite an exhaustive search by Emperor Drakon, Ameridan was never seen again.

This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Inquisition.


The truth about Ameridan may be quite different in some ways than believed by most Thedosians. It appears that Ameridan revered both the Maker and the elven pantheon, and loved an elven Dreamer mage, Telana. During the peril of the Second Blight, the Avvar of the Frostback Basin resented the inaction of Ferelden and summoned their god, Hakkon, in the form of a dragon.

Ameridan was able to seal the dragon with time magic, but not to defeat it. He was unaware of the fall of the Dales, and bitterly laments its loss--as well as its betrayal by Drakon's son--when informed of what occurred by the current Inquisitor.[1] If Cassandra is in the party and had discovered the truth about the Seekers and the Rite of Tranquility, Ameridan laments that he anticipated that the Rite would be abused.

When found by the Inquisitor, Ameridan leaves the task of destroying Hakkon to his successor and leaves a few parting gifts before fading away.
