Roggar is a casteless dwarf and a member of the Carta.

Background Edit

After acquiring the quest Entering Jarvia's Hideout, the Warden can witness Roggar along with some Carta thugs harassing Figor outside his store in the Commons. Upon completion of the conversation, they will enter the store to continue the extortion.

Involvement Edit

This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Origins.

If the Warden enters Figor's shop before dealing with Jarvia, and approaches Roggar and the other dwarves, he will try to extort the Warden by asking 10DAO goldpiece trans for protection, while Figor will ask the Warden to not get involved in this as they don't know what kind of people they are. The Warden can pay the money, refuse or intimidate him (this requires two points in Coercion). A Warden of Dwarf Commoner Origin requires no points in Coercion, as the intimidation will cause Roggar to recognize them which will be enough to make him and his men flee while warning them that Jarvia is looking for them, in order to exact revenge for Beraht's death.

Failing the intimidation or choosing to refuse to pay will cause Roggar and his men to attack and be killed. This however will cause Figor to permanently flee for fear of retaliation. He will not return, leaving his shop inaccessible for the rest of the game. Alternatively, paying for the extortion or successfully intimidating Roggar will provide access to Figor's shop. The latter will also earn the merchant's gratitude. If the party defeats Jarvia before ever entering Figor's store, Roggar will not be encountered and Figor will trade normally.

Quotes Edit

  • "You say "protection racket," I say "honorable business." You say "thief," I say "dead human."" (or "dead elf.", or "one dead dwarf.", depending on the Warden's race.)
  • (If intimidated) "Whoa, whoa. All right, you win. I'm not gonna die for ten lousy sovereigns."
  • (To the Dwarf Commoner) "You're the duster! The one who axed Beraht. Jarvia's been looking for you, and I bet she'd rather deal with you herself... Enjoy your last night alive, duster!"
