- “The Legion's pretty straightforward. We keep the darkspawn out of Orzammar. And we're sodding good at it.”
Now a lieutenant, Renn is known as a veteran of the Fifth Blight, although he waves off the notion, stating that he was a wet-nosed recruit and he never met the Warden personally. He is reputed to be one of the Legion's finest commanders.Three years ago, the Shaperate tasked him with protecting Shaper Valta during her search for dwarven relics in the Deep Roads. The two developed mutual affinity, although Renn is skeptical of Valta's theories. When the food riots started in Orzammar, Valta made sure his mother and brother are safe.
The Inquisitor first encounters Renn and his men fighting darkspawn and helps them seal off one of the exits to the Deep Roads with lyrium explosives. Renn accompanies the Inquisitor, their companions and Valta on their quest to stop the earthquakes through the Deep Roads and ruins of Heidrun Thaig. As they enter the natural caverns below the thaig, they are watched by blue eyes in the darkness. Renn dared the unseen watchers to show themselves, shortly before being shot through the chest by the Sha-Brytol. Renn managed to hold on until the attackers were all dispatched before succumbing to his mortal wound. He is buried according to dwarven tradition and Cole murmurs that "It sings softly under the silence. The Stone took him back. He's home again." However his grave site is subsequently disturbed, and his remains are now missing.
