- “Another grand scheme come to nothing.”
The Marquis of Serault is the player-controlled protagonist of Dragon Age: The Last Court. The player chooses either The Huntress (female) or The Scholar (male), each with different skills and abilities. The Marquis must navigate an important visit to the region from a notable person as well as maintain the safety, wealth and respect of the region during numerous difficulties and encounters during that time. The Marquis is approximately thirty years old.
- “Payment in Glass” ― Traditional Family Motto of the House of Glass
The Marquis is the young scion of the de Serault family, nicknamed the House of Glass, and, having succeeded their mother, the present ruler of the Marquisate of Serault. Serault is a domain located in the far west of Orlais. It is a realm of deep forests, stubborn people, and customs that border on heresy. The citizens of the region are largely craftsmen and the pride of the marquisate is its famed glasswork.
The Marquis' great grandfather, the former Marquis of Serault was an apostate mage, who later became an abomination. He is described as brilliant, murderous, generous, romantic, and ruthless, but eventually he brought shame to the marquisate. His name is now forgotten; he is known now only as the Shame of Serault. The family was even stripped of their ancestral mask, the symbol nobility in Orlais, by Divine Beatrix III and held in trust by the Chantry. This history continues to haunt the region and the Shame's family.
Now the current Marquis of Serault sets out to regain Serault's lost stature, by whatever means required.
- “Raised to rule. Trained in bow, sword and steed. Fearless.”
The Huntress is valiant, charismatic, and skilled in the hunt. She cares little for books or schemes.
- “You divide your time between the great hall and the library's hush. This is your chance to free Serault from the shackles of tradition. Seize it.”
The Scholar is a little better at rulership. He is also learned, cunning, and has spent thirty years avoiding fencing lessons and hunting.
Dragon Age: The Last Court
The Marquis of Serault receives news that Divine Justinia V is traveling to Serault on her way to the Temple of Sacred Ashes. There she will assess whether or not Serault has recovered from the humiliation that the Shame of Serault wrought. The Marquis of Serault sets out to use this opportunity to restore Serault to its former station at any cost.
Dragon Age: Inquisition
The Marquis de Serault is involved in two operations with the Inquisition.
|This section is incomplete and requires expansion.|
The first operation is to gain the favor of Serault's leader, choosing Josephine will lead to earning the favor of Serault, as well as the unique Skyhold customization option, "Serault Stained Glass."The second operation (should Josephine have been chosen, at least) revolves around the disappearence of both the Marquis and the Inquisition's diplomat in Serault, both lost to the eldritch forests during a hunting party. Sending Cullen will lead to the finding of the diplomat, but the Marquis has vanished.
