When I left Val Royeaux I swore I would no longer be someone else's Shadow. But I will be yours, and Serault's.

The Silent Hunter is a mysterious huntsman residing in Serault.

Background Edit

The Silent hunter is a reclusive, taciturn hunter who swore to never again be someone's Shadow after leaving Val Royeaux. Several rumors swirl about him, such as that he was once the lover of the Empress Celene, but no one knows the exact truth of his past. He himself almost never speaks, hence his popular name, although he can; if the Marquis of Serault employs him as a bodyguard, he will speak briefly to express his appreciation for the post.

Description Edit

They say he killed a bear with a single arrow to the eye. They say he was the Empress' lover, once, in Val Royeaux. They say he was conceived on a night sacred to the Masked Andraste, and that he was born with strength, speed and cunning, but no voice. What does he say? Nothing at all.

Involvement Edit

Dragon Age: The Last Court.

The Marquis of Serault can recruit him as a possible bodyguard. Upon recruitment:

He thinks about your offer for a long time, staring at his calloused, steady hands. Eventually, he stands, and bows. "When I left Val Royeaux I swore I would no longer be someone else's Shadow. But I will be yours, and Serault's." So he does speak.
