The spawn are clear in their intent, but a mage always unknown.

Ser Wesley Vallen is a templar. He was not based in Lothering, but headed there after hearing of the events at Ostagar in search of his wife Aveline, who was serving as a Fereldan soldier.

Involvement Edit

This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age II.

While fleeing Lothering, Hawke encounters Wesley and his wife, Aveline, battling Darkspawn. As they defend themselves, Wesley is cut across the arm and almost killed by a Hurlock, but is saved when Aveline tackles, beats and decapitates it. Still surrounded and outnumbered, the two are saved by the Hawke family. Wesley is initially hostile towards Bethany (and also Hawke if a mage), but relents out of gratitude for saving them and due to Aveline's insistence. She suggests that she and Wesley go with them to Gwaren and take a ship to Kirkwall. When Hawke's sibling dies, Wesley offers a prayer for them to comfort Leandra.

After Flemeth saves Hawke and company from the darkspawn attack, it is revealed that Wesley has been corrupted by the darkspawn taint.


Due to the Darkspawn taint, Wesley will not survive. Either Aveline or Hawke can grant him a quick death.

If Hawke chooses to let Aveline decide Wesley's fate:

  • Friendship small Aveline: friendship (+10)

If Hawke encourages Aveline to put him out of his misery:

  • Rivalry small Aveline: rivalry (+10)

If Hawke offers to kill Wesley:

  • Rivalry small Aveline: rivalry (+10)


  • Wesley is the first example shown of a married templar.
