Meeran is a character in Dragon Age II.


Meeran leads the mercenary band known as the Red Iron. He is first found in the Gallows, but moves to Lowtown (night) during Hawke's first year.

Entry into Kirkwall

Hawke must side with either his mercenaries or Athenril's smugglers in order to help get into Kirkwall, as part of Gamlen's plan. As a test of ability, Meeran requests that Hawke kill a nearby nobleman. Hawke can choose to kill the nobleman, or take a bribe in exchange for the nobleman's life.

Loose Ends
