Merin is a surface dwarf seeking, along with his brothers, to follow in Hawke's footsteps and venture into the Deep Roads for treasure.

Background Edit

Merin is the youngest son of Yevhen and works as a merchant. Among his brothers he is the most beloved of Dera, the elven woman who raised them. According to Yevhen, Merin idolizes Hawke and their deeds.

Dragon Age II.

Merin is involved in the quest Fool's Gold.

Yevhen, a dwarf which connections to the Dwarven Merchants' Guild, desperately asks Hawke to rescue his three sons who have gone down into the Deep Roads by themselves, in search of treasure. Once down there, Hawke will find Yevhen's oldest son, Emrys, sitting in front of a locked door. He will explain that his younger brother, Iwan, locked the youngest brother, Merin, in a room full of darkspawn before running off to find the treasure. Hawke then tells Emrys to go back to his father and must now choose which brother to save. If Hawke goes around the locked door and goes to the room Merin is locked in, Hawke and company must help him fight off a small troop of darkspawn. This act will save Merin who will then go back to his father. However, doing this will result in Iwan's death. Alternatively, Hawke can by-pass Merin's tomb and run straight to Iwan. Helping Iwan fight off his darkspawn will result in Merin's death.

If Merin survives he will express a new respect for the challenges the dwarves of Orzammar face in battling darkspawn every day, as well as a desire to not sit idly by while those dwarves endure such difficulties.
