Orson Haver is a dwarf of the warrior caste. Orson is also a companion during the A Tale of Orzammar DLC for Dragon Age: Origins. He can be found at Tapster's Tavern by the front counter. He is extremely drunk and easily confused.
Involvement[edit | edit source]
After speaking to the Dwarven Nobleman, the player must recruit Orson to aid him in the expedition. Since Orson is already quite drunk, he will join the expedition merely at the suggestion that he is already part of it and simply confused due to his intoxicated state. Despite being ostensibly a drunken vagrant, Orson is quite adept in battle and is already equipped with armor and a sword and shield. He will assist the player as they fight through the Ruined Thaig as well as in the final battle against the dwarven nobleman and his bodyguard. Should Bhelen's offer be refused, Orson will reveal that in reality he was working for Bhelen all along and his drunken antics were merely an act, by fatally knifing the player in the back.
Initial statistics[edit | edit source]
When recruited, Orson will be level 5.
