After his father died, Carver started down a military path and took part in the [[Battle of Ostagar]], serving in the "third company under Captain Varel" according to Aveline. His fellow soldiers said Carver fought well, that they used him as a spear while they kept the darkspawn off his flanks. He had to be dragged from the fight when [[Loghain Mac Tir]]'s betrayal forced the [[Ferelden|Fereldan]] army into a rout. Carver returned to his family though they had to flee once the [[darkspawn]] attacked [[Lothering]].

Carver will spend a year working with his elder sibling in servitude to repay the debt that got the family into Kirkwall. Carver will be particularly bitter in the [[Free Marches]] city. He feels no real connection to the city and believes Leandra is trying to force a past on the family that she had long left behind. Even so, Carver cares deeply for his family and will work for their welfare in Kirkwall. Carver and Hawke plan on joining [[The Deep Roads Expedition]] as it is their last resort to acquire enough wealth and influence to cow the templars from scrutinizing them too closely. As Hawke gathers money to pay for the [[Deep Roads]] [[The Deep Roads Expedition|expedition]], Carver gradually sees why people fear magic. Having grown up surrounded by magic, Carver did not see it as something to fear, though he never truly understood it, until he witnesses the darker side of it from Kirkwall's [[Blood magic|blood mages]]. He eventually shows more sympathy toward [[Templar Order|templars]], particularly after [[Birthright|learning]] he was named after the templar who freed [[Malcolm Hawke]] from the [[Circle of Magi]]. After amassing the fifty [[Currency|sovereigns]] needed to fund the expedition, Carver will volunteer to join his elder sibling in the Deep Roads venture. His mother however, will beg him to remain at home. Carver will protest, but the final decision will be made by Hawke.

In the [[DLC]] [[Legacy]], a deranged sect of the [[Carta]] will try to kidnap Carver due to his link to "the blood of the [[Malcolm Hawke|Hawke]]". Carver can travel with Hawke to a secret [[Grey Wardens|Warden]] [[Codex entry: The Warden's Prison|prison]] in the [[Vimmark Mountains]] in order to find the source of the aggression and uncover the harsh truth about the Hawke lineage.

If Carver is left at home when Hawke sets out for the expedition, he will willingly leave the Hawke family to join the templars. Carver believes that joining the templars will be his chance to prove himself and escape his elder sibling's shadow. Though resentful for being left behind from the expedition, he tells Hawke he does not intend to reveal that they are a mage. His training and duties as a new templar prevent him from joining his older sibling throughout their time in Kirkwall. A [[Letter: Family Letters|letter]] reveals that Carver found his calling among the templars but he is wary of the Order's extreme elements.

In a last attempt to make Hawke join the templars, he will ask if the Champion will fight their brother, giving Hawke the option of responding that Carver has been itching to fight them for a long time. Or Hawke can question him if he's willing to fight his sibling as well, to which Carver responds that isn't what he wants and begins to express doubts before Meredith reminds him of his duty as a templar. If the Champion sided with the templars, Carver will express surprise that it was the Templar Order which brought the siblings closer together. When the Champion goes to confront Meredith, Carver with [[Cullen]] will side with Hawke, stating that he will not murder his sibling for her. Carver may help out Hawke during the conflict. He will automatically join his sibling if Hawke does not have a full party.

If Carver comes with Hawke to the [[Deep Roads]], he will contract the [[Taint]]. If [[Anders]] was also brought along to the expedition, the mage will reveal that a group of [[Grey Wardens]] are nearby. Should Hawke choose to find the Wardens, Carver will be saved, at the cost of his leaving to undertake the [[Joining]]. It is later learned that Carver survives the Joining to become a Grey Warden, but the new recruit does not come back to the Hawke family. If Anders is not present, or if Hawke chooses not to seek out the Wardens, Carver must be put out of his misery.

Carver is very prideful and takes value in proving his worth to his family and comrades. Aggressive behavior impresses Carver, he is also a pro-Chantry supporter and supporting the Chantry's actions impresses Carver.
+
As a result of the inferiority complex that has plagued him since childhood, Carver takes value in proving his worth to his family and comrades.
   
Carver despises being inferior to his sibling, selecting dialogue that makes Hawke "selfless" will make him dislike Hawke with the sole exception of family matters. He also does not approve of pro-mage options that try to be merciful to mages, or options that would turn the templar's eyes towards them.
+
A responsible Hawke who keeps their family out of trouble and allows Carver to make his own mark on the world will gain friendship. Conversely, a Hawke who attracts templar attention by visibly challenging Kirkwall’s Chantry will frustrate Carver as he is adamant about an apostate Hawke avoiding the suspicion of the Order, thereby staying safe. As such, supporting the Chantry's actions and siding with Templars over mages in certain circumstances will net his approval despite his vocal disdain for the Templars themselves.
  +
  +
Carver values fairness and clemency as proven by his approval gains in [[Loose Ends]] and elsewhere, but does not believe his sibling should neglect their own self-preservation in the pursuit of mercy.

Latest revision as of 06:04, October 22, 2019

It seems I am again in your debt... and shadow.


Carver Hawke (born 9:11 Dragon[1]) is Hawke's younger brother and Bethany's fraternal twin. He specializes in two-handed weaponry.

Appearance Edit

Bethany Carver Chart

Carver's appearance varies with Hawke's facial preset and skintone

Carver has one of several facial structures, depending on which preset the player picks for their Hawke during character creation. The same applies for Bethany, Leandra and Gamlen.[2]

There are three base facial shapes that each family member can have. Hawkes using the default Hawke appearance or any of the first three presets will get the first head shape, Hawkes using the second three presets will get the second head shape, and Hawkes using the final three presets (or any modded presets past that) will get the third shape.

Each of the three head shapes has three variations - one with a pale skintone, one with a medium skintone, and one with a dark skintone, and each with a different hairstyle. Which of these variations is used by the game depends on Hawke's skintone; the first four skintones will result in the light-skinned version of Carver, the second four in the medium-skinned version, and the final four in the dark-skinned version. All versions of Carver will have black hair.

Involvement Edit

Dragon Age II Edit


This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age II.


After his father died, Carver started down a military path and took part in the Battle of Ostagar, serving in the "third company under Captain Varel" according to Aveline. His fellow soldiers said Carver fought well, that they used him as a spear while they kept the darkspawn off his flanks. He had to be dragged from the fight when Loghain Mac Tir's betrayal forced the Fereldan army into a rout. Carver returned to his family though they had to flee once the darkspawn attacked Lothering.

If Hawke is a warrior or rogue, Carver is killed during the attack on Lothering when he charges an ogre in order to protect Leandra. However, if Hawke is a mage, then Bethany dies instead while Carver survives to accompany his family to Kirkwall.

Carver-DA2

Carver in Kirkwall

Carver spends a year working with his elder sibling to repay their passage into Kirkwall. Carver is particularly bitter once in the Free Marches city. He feels no real connection to the city and believes Leandra is trying to force a past on the family that she had long left behind. Even so, Carver cares deeply for his family and works for their welfare in Kirkwall. Carver and Hawke plan on joining The Deep Roads Expedition, in the hopes that enough wealth and influence will keep the templars from Hawke. As Hawke gathers money to pay for the Deep Roads expedition, Carver gradually comes to see why people fear magic. Having grown up surrounded by magic, Carver did not see it as something to fear (though he never truly understood it either) until he witnessed the darker side of it from Kirkwall's blood mages. He eventually shows more sympathy toward templars, particularly after learning he was named after the templar who freed Malcolm Hawke from the Circle of Magi. After amassing the fifty sovereigns needed to fund the expedition, Carver volunteers to join his elder sibling in the Deep Roads venture. His mother however, begs him to remain at home. Carver protests, but the final decision is made by Hawke.

Left home

If Carver is left at home when Hawke sets out for the expedition, he willingly leaves the Hawke family to join the templars. Carver believes that joining the templars is his chance to prove himself and escape his elder sibling's shadow. Though resentful for being left behind from the expedition, he tells Hawke he does not intend to reveal that they are a mage. His training and duties as a new templar prevent him from joining his older sibling throughout their time in Kirkwall. A letter reveals that Carver found his calling among the templars, though he is wary of the Order's extreme elements.

Carver ATDR Templar

During the First Battle of Kirkwall, he is present with Knight-Commander Meredith as she leads a group of templars in Hightown.

As hostilities between mages and templars increase, Carver is kidnapped by Grace and Thrask who are inciting a rebellion to overthrow Meredith, believing that the Champion is working for the Knight-Commander regardless of their allegiances in the mage-templar struggle.

During the Kirkwall Rebellion in 9:37 Dragon, Carver supports the templars who are tasked by Knight-Commander Meredith to annul the Circle of Magi. In a last attempt to make Hawke join the templars, he asks if the Champion will fight their brother, giving Hawke the option of responding that Carver has been itching to fight them for a long time. Hawke can also ask him if he's willing to fight his sibling as well, to which Carver responds that it isn't what he wants and begins to express doubts. Meredith reminds him of his duty as a templar. If the Champion sided with the templars, Carver expresses surprise that it was the Templar Order which brought the siblings closer together. When the Champion goes to confront Meredith, Carver, and Cullen, side with Hawke, stating that he will not murder his sibling for her. Carver may help out Hawke during the conflict. He automatically joins his sibling if Hawke does not have a full party.

Taken on the Deep Roads

If Carver comes with Hawke to the Deep Roads, he contracts the Taint. If Anders was also brought along to the expedition, the mage reveals that a group of Grey Wardens are nearby. Should Hawke choose to find the Wardens, Carver is saved, at the cost of leaving his family to undertake the Joining. Hawke later learns that Carver survived the Joining to become a Grey Warden, but that the new recruit can't come back to the Hawke family. If Anders is not present, or if Hawke chooses not to seek out the Wardens, Carver must be killed.

Carver as a Grey Warden

During the First Battle of Kirkwall, Carver appears as a Grey Warden passing through Lowtown with Stroud or Alistair and other Wardens. However, he cannot join Hawke to save the city from the Qunari.

If Hawke is asked to find Nathaniel Howe in the Deep Roads, a Grey Warden Carver is seen fighting darkspawn. If Hawke has high enough friendship with Carver, Carver thanks Hawke for helping him; otherwise, he starts arguing about his sibling sticking their nose into everything, before being interrupted by Nathaniel who asks if they know each other.

As hostilities between mages and templars increase, Carver is kidnapped by Grace and Thrask who are inciting a rebellion to overthrow Meredith, believing that the Champion is working for the Knight-Commander regardless of their allegiances in the mage-templar struggle.

During the Kirkwall Rebellion in 9:37 Dragon, a Grey Warden Carver seeks out Hawke and ask them to let him fight by their side, thanking his sibling for saving his life. If Hawke sided with the templars, Carver expresses surprise that Hawke, who is a mage, is helping Meredith annull the Circle.

Carver Hawke Alive and Well: In the DLC Legacy, a deranged sect of the Carta tries to kidnap Carver due to his link to "the blood of the Hawke". Carver can travel with Hawke to a secret Warden prison in the Vimmark Mountains in order to find the source of the aggression and uncover the harsh truth about the Hawke lineage.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Edit


This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Inquisition.


If Carver is still alive, the Inquisitor can ask Varric Tethras about his fate.

Carver Became a Templar:

Varric states that he is still in Kirkwall, helping the Kirkwall City Guard keep order. A conversation with Hawke reveals that they sent their associate Aveline Vallen to take him far away from the Free Marches when they heard about templars acting strangely.

Carver Became a Grey Warden: Varric states that he was last seen on warden business near the border of the Anderfels. A conversation with Hawke reveals that they sent their associate Aveline Vallen to take him far away from Orlais when they heard about Grey Wardens acting strangely.

There is also a bottle of Conscription Ale with his name on it in Redcliffe Village, behind a masterwork locked door.

Either way, if Hawke lives after the encounter with Nightmare it is mentioned that they will likely reunite.

If Carver died in the Deep Roads Varric reminisces about it during the Keeping the Darkspawn Down side quest if he is in the party.

Friendship and rivalry Edit

See the approval page for more information.


As a result of the inferiority complex that has plagued him since childhood, Carver takes value in proving his worth to his family and comrades.

A responsible Hawke who keeps their family out of trouble and allows Carver to make his own mark on the world will gain friendship. Conversely, a Hawke who attracts templar attention by visibly challenging Kirkwall’s Chantry will frustrate Carver as he is adamant about an apostate Hawke avoiding the suspicion of the Order, thereby staying safe. As such, supporting the Chantry's actions and siding with Templars over mages in certain circumstances will net his approval despite his vocal disdain for the Templars themselves.

Carver values fairness and clemency as proven by his approval gains in Loose Ends and elsewhere, but does not believe his sibling should neglect their own self-preservation in the pursuit of mercy.

Carver concept

Main article: Carver/Dialogue
  • (Defending his mother from an ogre) "You soulless bastards!"
  • (After learning that Gamlen left the Amell will in the estate's vault) "What kind of daft bastard leaves that behind?"
  • (To Fenris) "If you have a problem with my brother/sister, you have a problem with me."
  • "It's like Mother, taking everything out on us. She was just scared. I don't have a place in the life she is trying to bring back."
  • (About Carver's namesake in Family History) "A man who let him look ahead. It would always mean 'skill thoughtfully applied.' Not exactly 'master of all blades' but... Father actually thought there was worth to a swordsman."
  • "A hundred ways to run, and we choose backward. Whatever you say, but chasing an old name isn't really starting over."

  • (Templar Carver) "I'm a templar not a cleric. I'd prefer to stay in this world as long as possible. And if I can make it an ordered place without looking like a zealot, all the better."
