Brother Burkel is a surface dwarf hailing from the Redcliffe chantry.


Unlike the majority of dwarves, who practice a form of ancestor worship, Burkel worships the Maker as a brother of the Chantry. He seeks to open a chantry in Orzammar and asks for the Warden's help to do so. This leads to the side-quest The Chant in the Deeps. He can be found near the entrance of Dust Town.

If the Warden chooses to help him open his chantry, they must go to Shaper Czibor in the Orzammar Shaperate and convince him to grant the authorization, as the Shaperate is responsible for such things.

If Brother Burkel successfully opened his chantry, the epilogue reveals that he drew a surprising number of converts, which angered the more conservative members of dwarven society and led the Assembly to restrict the rights of these converts. Burkel was killed during his arrest while leading a peaceful protest against these restrictions. His death was followed by riots in Orzammar, news of which led the Divine to contemplate calling a new Exalted March.
