Hissera is a player-controlled protagonist in Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer.

Background[]

Hissera was training as a priestess when her magic manifested. She learned to serve the Qun as a saarebas instead, her lips sewn shut and her actions monitored to protect her from demons. She lived a simple, dutiful life until the Qunari, seeking an alliance with the Inquisition, sent her to help restore order to the decadent South. Now, without an arvaarad to guard her, she must trust in the Qun, and her own power, to keep her safe from corruption.

Playstyle[]

Hissera cast powerful spells from one of the three different stances: the Opening Stance, the Flow Stance, and the powerful Finishing Stance. Hissera's spells act differently when cast from different stances, and Hissera automatically moves into a new stance each time to cast any spell.
