You and your friends are formidable folk indeed. Good to have you along the road.


Bodahn Feddic is the surface dwarf merchant of the Party Camp during the events of Dragon Age: Origins. Assisted by his adopted son, Sandal, he provides a venue through which to sell and buy goods.

In Dragon Age II Bodahn and Sandal provide provisions for the The Deep Roads Expedition and thereafter function as servants in the Amell estate in Hightown.

Background Edit

Bodahn portrait

Bodahn in Dragon Age: Origins

Bodahn was a successful Merchant caste[1] vendor in Orzammar. After his father's death, he took over the family business, Feddic Trades, and from a small booth in the Commons he expanded the business to a thriving establishment with many noble clients. Instead of trading in common wares or everyday necessities like his father did, Bodahn made his fortune by selling ancient artifacts. He would hire casteless to scavenge ancient thaigs in the Deep Roads and bring him everything they found. In some cases he would join the expeditions himself, though not without hired mercenaries for protection.[1] On one such occasion, a casteless took him past and deeper than the lost Aeducan Thaig. After hours of walking in the dark and in complete silence the party found a glittering wall depicting tales of heroes and Paragons. Elves, dwarves, dragons and creatures Bodahn could not name, the mosaic was filled with gems and gold. And when he turned his head Bodahn found Sandal, a dwarven child about five years old. Bodahn picked up the boy and ran with his men when he heard darkspawn screeching.[2]

Bodahn views his looting of lost thaigs not as a crime but as a way to save relics that would otherwise be lost. The deeper and more difficult to reach the thaig, the more Bodahn would pay to locate it, and consequently the more the nobles would pay for such items that reminded them of the glorious past of the empire. A few years after finding Sandal, a noble woman saw bracers that were made for her brother, and accused Bodahn of being a thief. Using her influence, the noble managed to get Bodahn arrested; before he could be judged, however, he bribed the guards with half his fortune and fled to the surface with the other half.[2]

Even on the surface, Bodahn continues to get his merchandise by questionable means: taking items left behind when people are fleeing from the Blight. He has said he has a wife in Denerim, but it is unlikely she could give him a child.

Involvement Edit

Dragon Age: OriginsEdit

Dragon Age: Origins.


Bodahn and Sandal are first met when the Warden is leaving Lothering. They are being attacked by darkspawn and after they are saved, they thank Warden. They'll ask where the Warden is traveling but will always decline to travel with the party; however, the first time you sleep at the party camp they will arrive there. Bodahn is very useful to have at the camp, so that there is always one reliable merchant nearby. The dwarf will also offer rumors about current events. Bodahn is last seen selling goods from Redcliffe Castle before The Final Battle.

Bodahn's stock will replenish once, when the Warden visits the Party Camp for the second time.

Dragon Age IIEdit


This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age II.


Bodahn and Sandal journey to Kirkwall in the aftermath of the Fifth Blight, acting as a supplier for Bartrand Tethras, who is heading an expedition into the Deep Roads. He proudly boasts about his association with the Warden to Hawke, who had managed to become Bartrand's business partner.

During the expedition, Bodahn alerts Hawke that Sandal has gone missing. Whether or not Hawke agrees to look for him, Bodahn is extremely grateful when Sandal returns to him unharmed. Bodahn later offers to be Hawke's servant to show his gratitude.

During Act 3, due to the rising tensions between templars and mages, Bodahn decided that it would be time that he and Sandal leave Kirkwall. He mentions that the Orlesian Empress is very interested in Sandal's enchantments and would like an audience with him. A letter by Walter reveals that Bodahn has also been helping child refugees find homes in Kirkwall.

Dragon Age II Edit

See also: Bodahn's Goods

In Act 1, Bodahn will be in Hightown outside the Dwarven Merchants Guild, near Bartrand Tethras, selling provisions. He will also be available later at the Primeval Thaig.

Quotes Edit

Dragon Age: Origins Edit

  • "Something you need? I'm sure either my boy or I can help you out."
  • "No offense, but there is probably more excitement on your path than my boy and I are up for."
  • "Are you sure I can't interest you in this hat? A pair of earrings perhaps? A cheese knife?"
  • "That's what I heard on the road, anyhow. Take it for what it is."

Dragon Age II Edit

  • "Don't worry, my boy. There's plenty of rats in Orlais--they just squeak with a funny accent."

Trivia Edit

  • Bodahn will mention being allowed into Redcliffe Castle if the Warden interacts with him at camp after the Landsmeet, despite not actually travelling to Redcliffe yet.
  • Bodahn is referenced in the Witch Hunt DLC, in which the Warden encounters Sandal working by himself in the Circle Tower. It is stated that Bodahn is currently in Redcliffe, selling his wares, but he is not encountered during the DLC as it never takes the Warden to that location.
  • While Bodahn is married, his wife never appears in Dragon Age: Origins and is never mentioned nor appears in Dragon Age II.
  • Bodahn's voice actor is used for several bartenders in Origins, such as in Denerim and Lothering. Furthermore, the lines when asking Bodahn about rumors are exactly the same for these other characters.

Bugs Edit

  • Once Bodahn has set up shop in the Party Camp for the first time, the next time you travel elsewhere on the world map, Bodahn's entire inventory will reset. This makes it possible to obtain duplicates of some useful items, such as tomes and unique equipment. Hold onto your money if you want to take advantage of this bug, because many of his items are very expensive to buy so early.
    Note: For some items like The Veshialle, there are only three ways of collecting enough money to purchase them before Bodahn's inventory resets: one is by selling The Reaper's Cudgel, another is by exploiting the quest Traps are a Girl's Best Friend. The last (and more common) is by the Unlimited Money glitch.
    • This bug can be exploited to accumulate upwards of 100DAO goldpiece trans by the time the party leaves Lothering- particularly for a Dwarf Noble rogue with Improved Stealing, or through the use of DLC or other exploits. For more information, see The Spellward.
      Note: Anything sold to Bodahn before this reset will disappear and be lost for good
  • Bodahn's entire inventory may disappear, except for what is in the "buy back" tab. If this occurs, the only fix is to revert to an earlier save.
  • After you save Bodahn from the darkspawn outside Lothering, he and Sandal are supposed to show up at your party camp. However, after you defeat the darkspawn, he may be stuck in combat, or the game may freeze when you speak to him. There is currently no way to fix this except to start again.
