I'm here to set things right. Also? To look dashing. That part's less difficult.

Dorian is a human Altus[2] mage of the Tevinter Imperium, and a companion in Dragon Age: Inquisition. He is a potential romance option for a male Inquisitor[3].


Dorian was born to a prestigious family of the Tevinter Imperium, demonstrating from an early age a flair for magic which made him the envy of his peers. He served as a student under magister Alexius, though eventually became disillusioned with Tevinter culture.

With his magical ability, wit and charm, it would seem he would have had a promising career in Tevinter had Dorian not become a pariah for opposing everything his homeland stands for. Dorian bears his ostracism with pride as he feels Tevinter will only change if someone like him makes a difference.


Seeking to halt what he perceives as the moral decay of his countrymen, he joins the Inquisition.


  • He is the first male companion that is an exclusive romance option for a male protagonist in the Dragon Age series.
  • Promotional material for Dragon Age: Inquisition describes him as "The Redeemer"[4].
  • Dorian is so named for the character "Prince Dorian" from the cartoon series The Mighty Hercules, which ran from 1962-1966.[5]
  • Dorian is described as fun, gregarious, outgoing and likeable.[6]
