Dwarves are one of the main parts of DA World, it's obvious a dwarf companion of the Inquisitor is possible in DA3. In DAO we had a stereotypical dwarf; in DAA we have a female dwarf, who shows how strong female can be and how effective on battlefield; in DA2 we had a companion contradicting all stereotypes - rogue instead of warrior, no beard, smart long range combatant not some stupid war hungry grunt. What dwarf companion in DA3 do you wish to have? I ask for gender, personality, class and combat preference and even optional romance.

I personally I'd like to have in DA3 a female dwarf companion like Sigrun, a strong female rogue beating stereotypical brutish dwarven male warriors by her close range combat skills. I don't mind romance option, but I don't want typical or stereotypical dwarven companion. (talk) 09:42, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

I would like to see a Dwarf like Kardol. He was a proud dwarf, and a proud member of the legion, duty bound, and a bit of a pessimist. I'd even take a bit of a mix between Oghren and Kardol, where he's happy, and can make jokes, but when the fighting starts he gets serious. There's no questioning his honor. Warrior class, maybe dual wielding axes. I'd have to go with Male with classic full beard. Possible romance option provided you meet some sort of criteria. Perhaps a personal quest to earn his respect/affection. Warden Mage: Ferris (talk) 20:59, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

Dwarf companion wise we've had a casteless legionnaire, a disgraced warrior caste drunk, and a smooth talking surface dwarf which pretty well encompasses three very distinctive aspects of dwarven culture. Personally I'd love to see a silent sister, perhaps with a traveling companion who acts as her mouth piece mainly because I found the silent sisters to be a very interesting order. That or a shaperate sent to the surface for some purpose.--Tabris.the.great (talk) 00:03, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

A Dwarven "Mage". That's right, I said mage. In the sense of Dagna or Dworkin the Mad I mean. A Dwarven Alchemist or Scientist that is proficient at working lyrium and crafting bombs and grenades that simulate elemental magic. This Dwarven Alchemist/Magister/Mage can then utilize these grenades in combat and they'll have their own special talent/weapon tree to reflect this. -- Soulofshezarr (talk) 01:20, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

Magic and alchemy aren't the same and throwing granades is possible for every class. (talk) 06:05, May 20, 2013 (UTC)
Noo shit! Did you not read the parts where I specified mage as "in the sense that they can emulate spells" through alchemy? Did you also miss the part where I said this character would specialize in grenade throwing specifically? As in a unique talent tree with bonuses and upgrades. The character would be classified as a rogue, but through his/her back story as a dedicated alchemist their grenades would simulate a mage's elemental spells. You decided to ignore my points just so you could sound clever on the Dragon Age wiki. Congratulations. -- Soulofshezarr (talk) 14:12, May 21, 2013 (UTC)
Such sarcasm is absolutelly needless, your agression even more. I simply misunderstood you and you behave the worst you can. (talk) 16:55, May 21, 2013 (UTC)
This is the internet. In the words of the Sten, "If I were indeed hostile, you would be bleeding." -- Soulofshezarr (talk) 22:32, May 21, 2013 (UTC)
Nonsense, you can harm me because we are miles from each other and you can't harm phisically anybody by internet. And don't threat me. (talk) 05:45, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
Wow talking to you really is like trying to teach a bar of soap how to do long division. Your point was... exactly my point. You claimed I was being aggressive. I refuted by saying there's no point in being aggressive on the internet as I can't physically harm you. It wasn't a threat. I was stating facts. I don't know what your native tongue is, but I can't help but think there's a language barrier I'm not crossing. So I won't bother responding to someone who persistently misunderstands what I'm saying without at least trying to comprehend my point. Peace. -- Soulofshezarr (talk) 12:00, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
I have no ideas, but so I'll stick with the one I've heard so far that I like the most, soulofshezarr, have a thumbs up. Also, you did a nice job of splattering the loon. YGuy (talk) 01:35, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
I always assumed the closest a Dwarf could get to using magic was to become a templar. Which in all honesty would be rather interesting to see as well. Warden Mage: Ferris (talk) 01:39, May 20, 2013 (UTC)
Game often contradicts the lore, for example dwarves are supposed to be immune on magic, but Oghren and Brogan can become templars and/or spirit warriors. (talk) 06:09, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

It'd be cool to have a Kal Sharok dwarf.--Liam Sionnach (talk) 04:38, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

I'd like a dwarf female warrior. I'm thinking a woman from the warrior or noble cast that was disgraced for some reason and forced into exile. She'd have to deal with suddenly being a "surface dwarf," someone she was raised to believe was no longer a true dwarf. I'm thinking she'd wield a weapon and shield, but her specialization would be a variation of a berserker, more about hitting hard and fast than being a tank. She would have light or no armor (I'm not suggesting a metal bikini or a fancy dress, perhaps simple yet practical clothing with pieces of leather or metal armor) to go with this theme.

Now that I look at this, I realize that this is very similar to my version of the dwarf noble warden. XP Still, it could be an interesting character if done properly. I suppose she could be a romance option, breaking through that hardened, battle-worn exterior and melting her icy heart? Might not fit her character, but it doesn't matter to me, since I'm still hoping for a Kossith or Tevinter Magister love interest. ;) Sevec 02:10, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

I rather see more original characters with more original backgrounds. (talk) 11:47, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

Forget new, I want my storytelling, crossbow loving, beardless dwarf back! Varric was the only thing that made DA2 playable. Please for the love of everything holy and sanctified Bioware, bring Varric back! B.S.S.T. (talk) 04:34, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

I would like to see Oghren in DA3, least in small cameo.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

It's about dwarven companion in DA3, not cameos of old characters.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
Let's see, Oghren, short, bearded, born in a dwarven city to dwarven parents, he can't be a dwarf can he? Anyway, i think it would be nice to see our favorite axe swinging dwarf again. --Halisme (talk) 18:42, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

A Kal-Sharok dwarf as another editor suggested is a good idea. Whatever the dwarf's origins might be, I want it to be a possible romance option for once. Viktoria Landers 15:12, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

Agreed on the dwarven romance. It was a real pity Sigrun couldn't be romanced. Origins and Awakening did a remarkable job making their short, stout dwarven women look cute rather than dumpy. :-) (talk) 06:06, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

I want Sandal to join the party! :D --Akanthar (talk) 13:03, May 24, 2013 (UTC)

So far all dwarf companions have been used as the comical relief companion. I think it would be new and interesting to have a dwarf companion that is quiet, cunning/wise, and talks little of his past. A casteless dwarf or one from Kal sharok with a dark past would be suitable for this. He likes to read writings from all cultures and races. He could be somewhat similar to Sten in a way of speaking in quotes or poetry he has learned and read of. (talk) 23:58, May 24, 2013 (UTC)

I want a super mutant from Fallout 3 instead of a dwarf for a companion. Like Uncle Leo, or Fawkes. In all seriousness, I honestly want another Oghren. Not exactly the same, and with less raunchy/randyness, so something like: I want Oghren's charisma, charm (Yes, charm), humor (less raunchy of course), and overall personality to be in place. We can get rid of the burping and drunkenness, but I still want him to have a serious past. Because think about it: Oghren may have been all humorous and "out there" in order to hide his shame and his sadness. See, by being an alcoholic, he basically ruined his life, or he started drinking because his life was falling apart around him. At the battle of Denerim, he basically lets you know that you took a failure and made him into something. It's one of the more emotional parts of the game, and I loved every second. I loved having him be himself in many parts, and I thouroughly enjoyed figuring out his psyche and realizing why he was who he was. So, I guess I just want a dwarf that I have to figure out. One who is more complicated than what he seems on the surface. Let's say he's a really happy, young dwarf that lost his dad to the darkspawn. And you wonder why he's so happy all the time, and it's because he was traumatized by his father's death, so in order to keep himself from going over the edge, his mind has kept him in a state of happiness from before his dad died, so while he does acknowledge it, he doesn't fully realize or accept the impact it had. The companion quest could be as simple as going to see his mother or family in general, or perhaps helping him move on and remember his father and try to be in his father's image, or I don't know. Just something that I have to figure out. I'm really into human psyche and neurology, mostly psyche. Edit: How do I put spaces between lines? My text appears to be this giant block and that is really annoying to my eyes. DeityX (talk) 13:29, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

I'd like a dwarf that is not the typical war-hungry drunken bearded dwarf. A female warrior type like Branka, obviously not with the bitchy personality of Branka, but one with a personality more like Sigrun. Marauder 09 FoC cover I can make the Black Sun look like a Swoop Gang. 03:37, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

As a seeker (or inquisitor) I gonna do a lot of inquisitions for many weird things, one thing should be the new dwarf magical abilities that led to the first dwarf mage, I like to investigate that, and win the dwarf mage as a companion. about her character, I'd like to see the confused eyes of the mage who don't realize most of her powers nor how she earned it, and watch the mis-use of its powers sometimes and the accident she may cause, I'm sick of old mage companions being abominations/spirit related/blood mages/witch of the wild .. etc, I want new mage type , innocent mage , dwarven mage ..
