Dragon Age: Origins[]

  • Looted from the body of Cristof during a map encounter in Denerim, after completing the quest Pearls Before Swine. Cristof is encountered whether you convince the mercenaries to leave The Pearl peacefully or give them a beating.

Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening[]


Long ago, a soldier from Gwaren was returning home after twenty years at war. On his way, he met an old blind woodcutter sitting on a tree stump, and he gave the old man his last scrap of bread. The old man gave the soldier his axe in return. The soldier made his bed in a tree branch and held the woodcutter's axe at his side to ward against beasts and bandits. When the moon was high, he was awakened by the sound of weeping. "Help me," spoke the tree in which he'd been sleeping, "If you had any pity in you, you would cut me down so that my spirit could go to the Maker." So the soldier took up his axe and struck the tree. The tree shattered when it hit the ground, and from the splinters rose a demon. The soldier was chilled to the bone, and could not sleep. In the morning, he found that the axe still burned like the blood of the sylvan.

BioWare canon
The following information is only mentioned in Dragon Age Tabletop. Certain portions of this media may no longer reflect currently established lore.

In the Dragon Age (tabletop RPG), Aodh is available as a "permanent magic item" reward for player characters. The axe is one of the most powerful weapons available in the game.[1]

“The battle axe known as Aodh is well known in Fereldan legends, some of which claim it burns with the blood of the first demon it slew. Others purport that its fiery nature is due to the volcanic aurum used in its construction. Whatever the reason, the flames surrounding Aodh’s blade deal an additional +3 penetrating damage.”
