A Behemoth is a monstrous creature comprised of red lyrium. They are often seen fighting alongside Red Templars.

Involvement[edit | edit source]


This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Inquisition.


Behemoths are actually Red Templars whose overexposure to red lyrium has completely consumed their bodies. They are barely recognizable as having once been human, and exist in constant agony; they are little more than living siege engines. When a behemoth is killed, the human templar within is briefly visible before collapsing into dust.


If the Mages are recruited into the Inquisition...
The first Behemoth which the Inquisition encounters appears during the battle of Haven. A fully-corrupted Knight-Captain Denam leads the final wave of Red Templars against the Inquisitor to prevent the firing of the trebuchet to bury Haven.

After this, Behemoths are deployed more frequently, joining Red Templar patrols throughout Orlais and Ferelden.


Abilities[edit | edit source]

Behemoths have very high armor and health, as well as the ability to generate Guard, making them very durable. They are also capable of sowing red lyrium into the soil; causing it to burst out of the ground when they strike the floor, and thus creating a barricade of red lyrium to trap their prey.
