Upon arriving to the Circle, Anders refused to speak, not even to tell the other apprentices his name. They began calling him "the Ander" because of his Anders heritage, and Anders eventually became the only name he'd use. Anders despised the Circle and compared it to a prison. His first escape attempt was made six months after arriving there. When asked why he escaped, he tearfully replied that he had simply wanted to go home.<ref>{{Cite wot2|160-162}}</ref> He made at least seven attempts<ref name="Codex entry">[[Codex entry: Anders (Dragon Age II)]]</ref>, each time being re-captured. Despite this, [[Irving|First Enchanter Irving]] believed that Anders, however reckless, posed no true threat.<ref name="Codex entry" />

When Anders was still an apprentice, he met and befriended an older boy, [[Karl Thekla]]. The two were inseparable for many years. Anders made no escape attempts in the years when the two were together. Shortly after their [[Harrowing]], Karl was transferred to [[Kirkwall]]'s [[Gallows]], a move which Anders did not take well. He attempted to escape shortly after, only to be recaptured on the docks in West Hill, attempting to buy passage to Kirkwall.
