Descriptions Edit

Andraste's Light Edit

We have brought Andraste's light to the Dales. None can deny her truth. In time, all will open their hearts to the Maker.

—From a sermon given by Sister Amity, at the conclusion of the Exalted March of the Dales

Andraste's Mercy Edit

Elves were guilty of the greatest sin, of turning from the Maker. But we will show them mercy, for that is what Andraste teaches.

—From a sermon given by Sister Amity, at the conclusion of the Exalted March of the Dales

Andraste's Strength Edit

Andraste's path was difficult, as was ours. But we did not falter, as she did not. And we will be rewarded, just as she was.

—From a sermon given by Sister Amity, at the conclusion of the Exalted March of the Dales

Andraste's Promise Edit

When her Chant is spoken from all corners of the world, the Maker will return. We are one day closer to His coming.

—From a sermon given by Sister Amity, at the conclusion of the Exalted March of the Dales

The Betrayer Edit

Even Maferath the Betrayer had a part to play. Who are we to say elves do not?

—From a sermon given by Sister Amity, at the conclusion of the Exalted March of the Dales

The Guide Edit

Historians have been unable to identify the mysterious and cloaked pointing figure in the Emerald Graves. Some believe it a representation of the elven god Falon'Din, known also as the Friend of the Dead, or the Guide. Others believe it an elaborate elven joke, its punch line lost to time.

—From A Journey through the Dales by Lord Horace Medford, "Adventurer"

Knight's Guardian Edit

Traveling through the Emerald Graves in the Dales, one will see dozens of carven stone wolves. The Dalish call these the Knights’ Guardians. In the days of elven Halamshiral, wolf companions walked alongside Emerald Knights, never leaving the side of their chosen knight. Wolf and elf would fight together, eat together, and when the knights slept, wolves would guard them. The statues were erected in memory of their unbreakable bond.

—An excerpt from In Pursuit of Knowledge: The Travels of a Chantry Scholar by Brother Genitivi[1]

The Lion's Pavilion Edit

The Lion's Pavilion is a welcome rest for weary travelers through the Dales. Its most prominent feature is a statue of a muscled Valmont emperor slaying a dragon - the symbol of the Drakon dynasty. The Valmonts' famed subtlety and grace clearly emerged with later generations.

—From In Pursuit of Knowledge: The Travels of a Chantry Scholar by Brother Genitivi

Silver Falls Edit

No elven treasure was hidden beneath the falls. That ridiculous tale lost me six soldiers. If I find the man who started the rumor, I'll kill him myself.

—From the journal of Captain Marsanne, dated 2:20 Glory

The Twisted Tree Edit

The tree on the hill made me deeply uneasy. I chose not to camp there, even though the view was something to behold. Later on, at a tavern in Ville Montevelan, I heard the tale. Before the Dales were conquered, elves would capture humans who trespassed, and string their heads from the branches of that twisted tree.

—From A Journey through the Dales by Lord Horace Medford, "Adventurer"

The Watcher Edit

I don't know who first called this place Watcher's Canyon. I know it's named for the strange hooded figure overlooking the ravine. No one knows who he is. People in these parts always refer to him as "the Watcher". He must've had an elven name. Perhaps he was one of their gods. None of the elves here can tell me. I don't think they even know anymore.

And this cave, "Watcher's Reach"? Well, he's reaching down into it, isn't he? Maybe with him guarding us, we'll survive this war.

—From Fairbanks' journal

Whiteshadow Edit

I camped beneath a large stone statue of a wolf not far off the road. With the calm eyes of the great beast watching over me, I slept like a babe-in-arms.

—From A Journey through the Dales by Lord Horace Medford, "Adventurer"

Wolf Falls Edit

Even with countless gallons of water rushing down over it for centuries, the wolf statue remains intact. Magic, perhaps?

—From Fairbanks' journal

Vallasdahlen Edit

Elves have their heroes, just as we do; they honor the Vallasdahlen—Life-Trees—of these legendary figures. Planted in remembrance of those who dedicated their lives to the Dalish kingdom, these trees grew into a mighty wood, a testament to the elves' force at their height.

Walk beneath the Vallasdahlen with reverence; remember that each of them once had a name.

—From In Pursuit of Knowledge: The Travels of a Chantry Scholar by Brother Genitivi[2]

The Dalish believe Mathalin was the first of the Emerald Knights, and the first to hold Evanura, the blade of honor, forged in Halamshiral for his hand.

Tanaleth was a smith and the High Keeper of June; she spent her years rediscovering the arts of Arlathan.

Briathos protected the Dales from human incursion. When humans sent missionaries and templars, he turned them away.

Vaharel conquered the human city of Montsimmard.

Lindiranae was the last to hold the blade Evanura. With her fell the Dales; the sword was lost.

Dalish revere Elnora for her tireless work reviving the magical arts of lost Arlathan.

Ralaferin was a great lord of elven Halamshiral. The Ralaferin tribe existing today believes they descend from him.

Calmar was Elnora's apprentice and First, and friend to the halla.

Sulan was Mathalin's squire. He walked always with a wolf at his side.
