During the [[Orlais|Orlesian]] occupation of [[Ferelden]], Rendon's father, Tarleton Howe sided with the occupiers and was hanged by the [[Cousland family|Couslands]] after they captured [[Harper's Ford]].<ref>[[Codex entry: The Howes of Amaranthine]]</ref> His uncle [[Byron Howe|Byron]] became the new Arl of Amaranthine who joined the rebel cause in 8:97 [[Blessed Age|Blessed]]. Like his uncle, Rendon Howe also joined the [[Fereldan Rebellion|rebellion]] led by the future king, [[Maric Theirin]]. He fought alongside the young [[Bryce Cousland]] of [[Highever]] and [[Leonas Bryland]], future arl of South Reach, at the bloody battle of White River. The battle was the most catastrophic defeat of the entire occupation, from which only 50 rebel soldiers escaped alive. Although he was decorated for valor by King Maric, Howe's abrasive manners earned him almost universal dislike among his peers. Bryland implied that Howe's personality altered after the battle. He has three known children: [[Nathaniel Howe|Nathaniel]], Thomas, and [[Delilah Howe|Delilah]].
   
He fought alongside the young [[Bryce Cousland]] of [[Highever]] and [[Leonas Bryland]], future arl of South Reach, at the bloody [[Fereldan Rebellion#Battle of White River|Battle of White River]]. The battle was the most catastrophic defeat of the entire occupation, from which only 50 rebel soldiers escaped alive. Rendon fought with the Army of the North led by Bann Angus Eremon, tasked with holding the valley against the Orlesian cavalry's charges. He was gravely wounded on the second night and had to be dragged off the field by Bryce and Leonas. When Bann Angus finally announced the retreat, Rendon's friends carried him to a freehold in [[Redcliffe]]. While the rest of the survivors left to find the Army of the South, Bryce and Leonas stayed with Rendon almost a month while he recuperated. Though all three were personally decorated for valor by King Maric, Rendon was too wounded to rejoin the army, and while his friends joined the Army of the South, he spent months in [[South Reach]] being tended by Eliane Bryland, Leonas' sister and an accomplished physician and herbalist.

Nathaniel later recounts the proud history of the [[Howe family]]. He states that Rendon hated his wife; when asked why, he says that he doesn't know, but he remembers that her family was wealthy.<ref>Referenced by the "Portrait of a Howe" in ''[[Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening]]''.</ref>
 
Byron Howe died just a few months later, which made Rendon the new arl. Eliane Bryland insisted on accompanying him to Amaranthine; he proposed to her a year later, saying that if she wasn't going to leave already they might as well marry. Leonas had become concerned by the changes in his friend's behavior since the battle and attempted to prevent the marriage. When Rendon told him that he needed her for dowry and connections, he severed all contact. Because some believed the arling should have passed to Byron's daughter, and because Eliane was half-Orlesian, only Bryce Cousland and his fiancee came to witness their vows.<ref>{{Cite wot2|112-114}}</ref> They had three children [[Nathaniel Howe|Nathaniel]], Thomas, and [[Delilah Howe|Delilah]].

Since the Battle of White River, Howe's abrasive manners have earned him almost universal dislike among his peers.
