In Kirkwall, sometime between 9:31 and 9:34 Dragon, Tallis, demoted to the role of a worker, an Athlok, is given opportunity to redeem herself, and thus regain her former title and rejoin the ranks of the Ben-Hassrath. She is tasked by her Qunari superiors to apprehend a rogue Saarebas, who was captured and imprisoned in a secret Chantry prison by the templars, but managed to break out of captivity. The Saarebas embarks on a rampage to perform a dark ritual, wreaking havoc along the way.

Cast and crew[]


Felicia Day as Tallis

Felicia Day plays Tallis and describes her character as headstrong and sarcastic, saying that she wanted to bring a modern sensibility to the role. BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk said that the studio was excited to work with someone with as much passion for games as Day has.[4]

Doug Jones, who is known for make-up heavy roles such as the Faun in Pan's Labyrinth or Abe Sapien in Hellboy, makes an appearance as a Saarebas. He describes his character as the main antagonist in the series.[5]

The templar Cairn is played by an English-American actor Adam Rayner, the British actress Marcia Battise portrays the Nevarran mercenary Nyree, and the elven mage Josmael is played by an American actor Masam Holden.

Greg Aronowitz was responsible for special effects, props, and make-up. He crafted the weapons used and the armours worn in the series.

The series is directed by Peter Winther, whose previous work includes production duties on Independence Day and Stargate. He's also directed a few episodes of the TV show Leverage. Lost's John Bartley is the cinematographer.[6]


  • Nyree mentions the location Wilverdale in Episode 4, which is a strikingly similar name to Wildervale that appears on maps of the Free Marches north of the Vimmark Mountains. It is unclear if this is a mistake in attempting to refer to Wildervale, suggesting that the party is north of the Vimmarks at the time, or refers to a village somewhere south of the Vimmarks, near Kirkwall and Sundermount.
