The Red Templars are a splinter faction of rebel Templars, who have become addicted to the use of the so-called "Red Lyrium", a form of normal Lyrium that has been transformed by the Darkspawn Taint technically making them Ghouls.

Following the disappearance of Lambert van Reeves, Lucius Corin succeeded him as Lord Seeker and led the Templar Order in the Mage-Templar War.

Lord Seeker Lucius introduced Red Lyrium to the templars, claiming that it was superior to Chantry lyrium. Thinking that red lyrium was just a tool, the templars followed the Lord Seeker's order. The commanders of the Templar Order became corrupted and began corrupting the rest of their subordinates, by force if necessary. Soon, physical changes began to emerge and Red lyrium veins appear to manifest on the skin of those exposed. Thus the Red Templar order was born.
