The Sha-Brytol, or "Revered Defenders"[1] are a group of ancient dwarves, secluded past the Deep Roads.

Background


This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Inquisition.


Little is known about the history of the Sha-Brytol apart from the fact they protect the Titans, what is known is that they predate the fall of the Dwaven Empire and the arrival of the Darkspawn. According to Valta, they are lost and misguided from their original purpose. They were all Dwarves who drank Titan's blood - lyrium, and wear armor with lyrium woven into it this causes it to fuse to their flesh. They guard the titans from those they deem "impure".

In their search for the source of mysterious earthquakes, a company led by Inquisitor and dwarves Valta and Renn descend past the Deep Roads, and whilst navigating a cave system in the dark, they realize they're not alone. Renn demands the entities to reveal themselves, and is shot with a projectile. The Sha-Brytol reveal themselves, armed with mechanized crossbows and lyrium-infused armor. A fight ensues, and Renn succumbs to his wounds in the battle's aftermath. Valta grieves, but examines the Sha-Brytol, recognizing them as dwarves. The company lays Renn to rest and presses on, finding lyrium carvings similar to the Orzammar's Memories.

The company pushes further, meeting heavy Sha-Brytol resistance, until they enter something unprecedented: a massive cavern, verdant with green. The Inquisitor and Valta surmise the Sha-Brytol live within the cavern, then spot a massive piece of pure lyrium atop a shrine. Valta credits it as the source of the quakes. The Sha-Brytol attempt to stop their advance, but are slain. Once they reach the shrine however, the lyrium crystal blasts away Valta, incapacitating her, and assembles a guardian to defend itself.
