Duncan is the dedicated warrior leader of the Grey Wardens who serves as a mentor of sorts to the player character. He has been entrusted with the task of leading the Grey Wardens in Ferelden. This is considered a difficult task because the Grey Wardens were exiled from Ferelden 200 years ago.
Like many others, Duncan gave up his family name when he joined the ranks of the Grey Wardens, a symbolic gesture of cutting ties. He might say this was a convience in his case, however. His mother was from the Anderfels, his father from Rivain, and he spent his childhood in the Free Marches and Orlais. His people were everywhere and his homeland was no where. He was given the almost impossible task of leading the Wardens in Ferelden, a kingdom that had thrown the order out two hundred years earlier. Facing local suspicion and hostility, he set about finding recruits.
