Murdock is the mayor of Redcliffe Village and is in charge of the militia and the defense of the village against the undead.

Dragon Age: Origins.

Murdock asks the Warden to do two things to prepare for the upcoming battle:

  • Convince Owen to fix his militia's armor
  • Convince Dwyn to fight alongside the militia

Once the Warden has accomplished theses tasks, Murdock directs them towards Ser Perth for additional tasks. Murdock also keeps the Warden updated on the stated of the militia's soldiers and their morale.

If Murdock dies during the attack on Redcliffe, Revered Mother Hannah will say a few word for him. If he survives, he will be standing roughly in the same spot he was before the attack, before heading off to the village chantry. The Warden may ask him to join the army, but Murdock always declines the offer.

If the Warden chooses not to defend Redcliffe, Murdock will later appear within the castle as a re-animated corpse.
