BioWare canon
The following characters, lore and events in this section are non-canon in Dragon Age and exist only within the Dragon Age tabletop RPG.

Also known as "rock beetles", cave beetles are black, hard-shelled scavengers that live in underground caverns and in the Deep Roads and typically consume carrion.[1]

Background Edit

On their own they are little more than a nuisance but an entire nest stirred by a careless passerby can become a swarm capable of stripping the flesh from a creature in a matter of minutes. A swarm is relentless and fast-moving, able to move along tunnel walls, floors, or even ceilings in pursuit of prey.[1]

Trivia Edit

  • Cave beetles are consumed by the dwarves and are part of their diet, in the form of being roasted and eaten out of the shell.[1]
