From what we've been told, the Inquisitor is seen with suspicion because they're the only one that survives some crazy explosion that killed everyone else... and that he has the unique ability to close the tears in the sky.

That last bit... does that really make him special? In Dragon Age Origins, Warden's Keep DLC, We learn that the tears in the Veil can be easily repaired. The Warden Mage, Avernus, does some hand waving movements, and the tear in the veil is repaired... well, more so than before... My point is we've already seen that the tears in the veil can be repaired. Why does this ability make the Inquisitor special? Kaspar Sinclair (talk) 10:25, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

I think Avernus closing the veil may have been a special case, because he was the one breached the veil in the first place when he was summoning the demons. Since he was the person who drew those summoning circles, i think he had the knowledge on how to erase his previous work.

However, in Awakening the Warden is able to repair the veil from the inside by activating those pedestools, and the warden isn't even necessarily a mage. That would seem to suggest any mage could repair the veil if they were able to enter the fade first. That normally requires a lot of lyrium or blood magic, so perhaps the Inquisitor's power is unique because it doesn't need those? Drake72 (talk) 10:57, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

Like Drake said, i think Avernus too was a "special" case. Plus those veils are minuscule in comparison to those the Inquisitor has to deal with. But what makes it special is that this dude (or dudette) can close veils through a mysterious power. People will wonder as to how a non-mage attained those abilities. And I'm guessing -since Laidlaw said- if you're a mage, i wouldn't be surprised if some individuals saw you as the perpetrator. I've got a feeling that we'll be possessed without knowing it though, and they'll do a Revan and let us know that we're the thing that caused the tears. That the Inquisitor is an amnesiac, or the demon or spirit or whatever that possess them is of memory loss.

SIDE NOTE, that idea -as awesome as it'd be- is probably and definitely unlikely. But I do think that the Inquisitor's powers are linked with the perpetrator. Lazare326 15:29, May 19, 2014 (UTC)
