So much of our history's been lost. To regain knowledge that hasn't been distorted by the Chantry...

Taven is the First to Keeper Hawen, leader of a Dalish clan encamped on the Exalted Plains.

Involvement Edit

Taven defied Hawen to travel to the Emerald Graves to investigate Din'an Hanin, a memorial tomb dedicated to the Emerald Knights, the army of the fallen Dalish nation.

This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Taven can encounter the the Inquisitor while they are investigating the Freemen of the Dales and Red templars in the Graves. Taven will discuss the tomb, but will initially refuse help investigating the tomb.

After Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts, the war table operation Investigate Elven Ruins becomes available. This triggers an event where a Venatori-Red Templar force seizes Din'an Hanin, slaying Taven, the other Dalish and the Inquisition troops present.

Notes Edit

  • Although Taven's name is spelled "Taven" when he introduces himself and when he is referred to in dialogue by other characters, his in-game model's name is misspelled and reads "Tavin".
  • He wears the Vallaslin of Elgar'nan.
