- “Ah my little Fenris, predictable as always.”
Danarius is one of the powerful magisters of the Tevinter Imperium, with interests in experimentation with magic and lyrium. He treats his slaves brutally and resents any of his possessions which elude his grasp. Castellum Tenebris, which is deemed impenetrable, is the seat of House Danarius.
In 9:34 Dragon, Danarius dispatches Hadriana, his apprentice, to Kirkwall with a contingent of slavers to try and recapture Fenris. Hadriana and those sent with her however are slain in Hawke and Fenris' attack on the Holding Caves. However Hadriana reveals to Fenris' the identity of his sister, Varania before she is killed.
Finally in 9:37 Dragon, Aveline will inform Fenris that his sister has been spotted in Kirkwall. Fenris has Hawke accompany him to the Hanged Man, where Varania is staying. However, it emerges that Varania is a mage, and has been accepted as Danarius' apprentice in exchange for helping re-capture her brother. Hawke can either surrender Fenris to Danarius, or aid their companion in killing the magister. In the latter option Fenris grabs the exhausted Danarius by the throat after a fierce battle, and uses his lyrium-power to kill him remarking to Danarius "You are no longer my master!".If Hawke allows Fenris to be taken, they will receive a letter from Danarius, which includes payment, an account of Fenris's status, and an offer to tour the Arcanist Hall in Minrathous, should Hawke ever find themselves in the city as well as Danarius' thanks.
- (To Hawke) " Do I detect a note of jealousy? It's not surprising. The lad is rather skilled, isn't he?"
- "You weren't always this way, Fenris. Once upon a time you had affection for me. I remember it fondly.
