Involvement[edit | edit source]
The First is a talking darkspawn you meet in the Blackmarsh. It is very loyal to the Mother, and despises the Architect and the Warden-Commander. The First apparently killed the Grey Warden Kristoff, the man who the Commander was looking for in the first place. The First was sent by the Mother to leave a trap for the Warden-Commander, sending the Commander and their party into the Fade, but didn't realize that it was included in the trap as well. Once it realizes that it has been betrayed, it vows to find its own way out of the Fade and get revenge on the Mother.
The First attempts to secure its way out by allying itself with the Baroness. When the Warden-Commander allies with the Spirit of Justice to take her down, the two clash. Upon defeat, the First requests that the Baroness send them back out to the real world; however she instead uses its lifeforce to return herself back to the mortal world while the Warden-Commander, their party and Justice are accidentally sent back as well.
Alternatively if the Warden-Commander allies with the Baroness, the First will side with the Spirit of Justice. After the skirmish, the First will have survived, and as the Baroness requires a living vessel to conjure her spell that will send the Warden-Commander out of the Fade, she uses the weakened First. Although it tries to escape, it ultimately proves futile as it is caught in the spell.
