The Jaws of Hakkon, also dubbed Hakkonites, are cult of Avvar who have eschewed all other gods in favor of Hakkon Wintersbreath. They are an aggressive group unlike many other Avvar, and seek to conquer the Fereldan Lowlands.
During the peril of the Second Blight, the Avvar of the Frostback Basin resented the inaction of Ferelden and summoned their god, Hakkon, in the form of a dragon. According to Thane Svarah Sun-Hair, it was at this time that Hakkon was rendered unable to hear their prayers nor communicate with the Augurs of the Hold. All he was able to do was kill. He then disappeared, and was considered lost to the Avvar.Unknown to the Avvar, Inquisitor Ameridan was sent by Kordillus Drakon I to ensure the safety of Orlais from destruction by Hakkon. Ameridan was unable to slay the dragon, but was able to seal both himself and it with time magic, remaining in stasis for eight hundred years. By 9:41 Dragon, the Jaws of Hakkon attempted to draw their god into another vessel.
