'''Aveline Vallen''' is a [[human]] [[warrior]]. She was fleeing [[Lothering]] with her husband Ser [[Wesley]] during the [[Fifth Blight]] when they were set upon by [[darkspawn]] and rescued by the [[Hawke]] [[Amell family|family]]. Aveline is one of Hawke's [[Companions (Dragon Age II)|companions]].

http://masseffect.wikia.com
== Background ==
 
Aveline is a soldier, a master of sword and shield, and a tireless guardian... to a point. The daughter of an exiled chevalier, Aveline is not the knight her father wished her to be. Although fully trained in chivalrous combat, she was raised in the shadow of a lost life and will not lose another for the sake of honor. Protecting her adopted home of [[Kirkwall]] becomes a chosen duty, not a privileged calling. The people she stands for will not be wasted on lost causes or protecting the foolish from themselves. Pride can be bandaged like any other wound—when threats are dead and everyone is safely home.<ref>[http://dragonage.bioware.com/da2/world/characters/aveline/ BioWare site]</ref>

{{SpoilerDA2|
 
[[Hawke]] will first encounter Aveline during the escape from Lothering. Her husband, [[Wesley]], a Templar, is corrupted by the darkspawn taint during their escape and is killed at his request by either Hawke or Aveline. Though in the end it only matters to her friendship if the decision was with her from the start, not who does the deed in the end. Aveline ultimately journeys with the Hawke family to [[Kirkwall]]. Note: There seems to be some confusion in that the friendship/rivalry for this scene doesn't show up until ''after'' the cutscene at Kirkwall. It does not seem like your conversation options there have an effect, it's whether or not you let Aveline choose.
 
   
Aveline doesn't want to be a bother for the Hawkes providing the income to join the city but accepts the offer anyway. After being confronted with [[Cavril|Cavril's]] cheating methods on the refugees she is more than willing to do the deed in [[Athenril|Athenril's]] name herself if asked to, providing an increase of trust with Hawke.

Aveline will later join the Kirkwall Guard. If Hawke aids her in her companion quests, she will replace the previous captain, who was selling city information to thieves, and become the Captain of the guard<ref>[http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/141/index/6069975/1 BioWare Forums]</ref>. Later on in the story, she can begin a relationship with Guardsman [[Donnic Hendyr]], with Hawke's help, and eventually get married to him at the Hawke Estate.

[[Category:Humans]]
In the quest [[Night Terrors]] in Act 2 after you saved Feynriel in Act 1 from the Circle, she will ultimately give in to her desire for revenge on Wesley's behalf when you steal Feynriel from the demon of desire. She will give you the quest "Doubts that linger" afterwards.
+
[[Category:Fereldans]]
+
[[Category:Warriors]]
If you take her along in the quest [[Offered and Lost]] to face the charges of the false sigil, she will not be amused to be part of an accusation against the Grand Cleric Elthina. This increases her rivalry by 5.
+
[[Category:Companions]]
+
[[Category:Characters]]
In the final battle she will only join Hawke in favor of the mages if she is his friend or rival, otherwise she will act on the Templars behalf. If she joined you she will vow for Anders' execution, and tell him that he must turn himself in after the fight.

Later in the gallows she admits that Hawke put her loyalty to a real test, nontheless Donnic issued the order to protect the civilians, keeping them from siding with the Templars.
+
[[Category:Fereldans]]
+
[[Category:Warriors]]
*If she is, for whatever reason, not married to Donnic but remained loyal to Hawke, she will state that because some of her guards support the Templar's and side with them against the mages, she will never truly forgive Hawke for their deaths.

[[Category:Companions]]

[[Category:Characters]]
*Note: Like other companions, Aveline has a gift, a shield. If Hawke, has sold Ser Wesley's Shield, unequiped it from her, or placed it in storage, Aveline will mention it with clear dislike when she is presented with the new shield, however, if you explain that the shield is a gift for being a friend, you can avoid receiving rivalry points.

[[Category:Companions]]
Aveline cannot be romanced like the other love interests (Fenris, Isabela, Anders, & Merrill) but Hawke can flirt with her during her personal quest, [[The Long Road (quest)|The Long Road]]. However, any attempt at flirting goes right over her head. It is however possible to recieve a quick kiss at the end of the quest, although this doesn't appear to have any relation as to whether the player selected a flirt option or not.

== Armor ==
 
[[File:Aveline_Armor_Upgraded.jpg|thumb|299px|Aveline Armour - Fully Upgraded]]
 
 
{{See|[[Companion armor]] for a list of all Companion Armor upgrades}}
 
 
In ''[[Dragon Age II]]'', you cannot change what armor your companions wear, but you can upgrade it. Aveline's armor may be upgraded by using the gift mechanics in ''Dragon Age II''. You will find companion armor upgrades that can be purchased at shops in the tab designated by the Gem Icon. Aveline's armor has four slots available for upgrades. These upgrades may be purchased or found at various locations in the game. Upgrading a companion's armor once unlocks the "A Friend In Need" achievement and fully upgrading a companion's armor unlocks the "I Got Your Back" achievement.
 
 
Aveline's armor upgrades can be found in the following locations:
 
* Act 1: Underpadding - Guardsman Pattern. [[Lowtown]] Armor Merchant (Outside the Foundry)(+63 Attack).
 
* Act 2: Flex Chain - During the [[Raiders of the Cliffs]] quest. (Extra Rune Slot)*
 
* Act 2: Impact Plating - Guardsman Pattern. [[Lowtown]] Armor Merchant (Outside the Foundry). (+23-30 Armor)
 
* Act 3: Deflecting Joints - During the [[Favor and Fault]] quest. (Should be on Jeven's body but is bugged - confirmed)
 
 
Aveline's armor changes to basic guardsmen armor after Hawke's first year in Kirkwall.
 
If Aveline becomes the new Guard Captain, her armor will change to reflect her new role.
 
 
*Note: Aveline's "Flex Chain" can be obtained during Act 2 with or without Aveline in your party on the southernmost tip of the Wounded Coast. You'll find it on the corpse of Fell Orden (The mage you are there to eliminate).
 
 
*Note Deflecting Joints. Having run through the game twice since patch 1.02 I can confirm this is fixed. If Aveline is in your party the upgrade appears on Jeven's body as loot. If she's not in your party, the upgrade appears on Aveline next time she joins your party. (PC Version)

=== Dialogue ===
 
{{Main|Aveline/Dialogue}}
 
 
==Trivia==
 
* [[Lukas Kristjanson]] wrote Aveline for ''Dragon Age II''.
 
* In [[Origins]], [[Leliana]] tells the tale of the female warrior Aveline, Knight of Orlais who fought and was executed, during an arena match, after she was revealed to be a woman. Her courage and skill ensured her knighthood as the first woman ever to receive that honor.
 
* According to Lukas Kristjanson, Aveline's writer, if Aveline were a food she'd would be "Steak. Rare. But with caramelized onions and baby corn nibbled from the side like a full cob when no one is looking." <ref>[http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/141/index/4474634/51#5722695 Lukas Kristjanson] BioWare Forums, Retrieved 01-14-11</ref>
 
*Aveline's favorite color is green.<ref>
 
[http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/141/index/4474634/2&lf=8 Lukas Kristjanson] BioWare Forums, Retrieved 02-16-11</ref>
 
*Aveline's unique specialization class is [[Guardian (Dragon Age II)|guardian]].<ref>
 
[http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/141/index/6075919&lf=8 Mike Laidlaw] Bioware Forums, Retrieved 2-16-11</ref>
 
*Aveline was at [[Ostagar]], and remembers Carver and Hawke (if a warrior or rogue), and is aware that [[Loghain]] betrayed [[King Cailan]].
 
* Although Aveline is not a romance option, she can be flirted with by both a male and female Hawke.
 
* Her father's name was Benoit du Lac. All she remembers of her mother is that she had "impossibly long hair."
 
* The location of Ser Wesley's Shield is referenced when you gift Aveline [[Shield of the Knight Herself (quest)|Shield of the Knight Herself]]--if it is in your inventory, equipped to Aveline, or not in your inventory she will have different comments. If it is in storage, she still believes you have sold it.
 
*Aveline is an atheist, indicated by her comments when talking about Wesley's death. She says that she does not find the Chantry's doctrine compelling, and says that the [[Chant of Light|Chant]] is lovely, but perhaps that is all it needs to be.
 
*Hawke receives a letter from his/her cousin in which she asks if it is true that he/she is sleeping with the captain of the guard after the quest [[Gamlen's Greatest Treasure]].
 
 
==Bugs==
 
*When using the skill "Immovable", Aveline has a chance of becoming frozen in place in the combat stance, unresponsive to even manual control. Unlike the skill associated movement reduction, this will not eventually wear off and can only be fixed by leaving the area.
 
*When giving Aveline the [[Shield of the Knight Herself]], her dialogue indicates that Ser Wesley's Shield was sold even if it was merely being kept in Hawke's storage chest. (PC/PS3/XBOX360)
 
*During the quest Demands of The Qun, when the Arishok attacks the guards in the compound, Aveline's shield will disappear and her sword will revert to the one she carried when first met for the duration of the scene.
