The Genlock emissary is a genlock that wields magic.

Background Edit

This emissary derives from a particularly cunning genlock alpha. They typically only appear during Blights in order to rally their darkspawn brethren and to carry out the Archdemon's more intricate plans. The ability of a genlock--said to be born from a dwarven broodmother--to wield magic, and to do so effectively while heavily armored, is a mystery. Grey Warden scholars theorize that the magic of a Genlock emissary is akin to blood magic, allowing the sorcerer to ignore the magic-dampening effects of armor by using their cohorts' life-force to power their spells.

Variations of the Genlock emissary are Necromancer, Shapechanger and Conjurer.
