Haldor Augusten Saeridin III
: Hal or Sonny
: Surface Dwarf
: Hanamene, Varric, Saeridin & Son Building Company
, Dwarven Merchants' Guild
: A surface dwarf and Master Builder who inherited the family company. He was the son of surface dwarves Siena and another Master Builder, now deceased, named Haldor Saeridin Jr.. Hal's grandfather, the original Haldor, was from Orzammar - in his later years people called him Grampy Saeridin, or Grumpy
behind his back.
: Sienna red hair and a twitchy moustache. In his forties.
: Cantankerous. Secretly a softie. Survivalist i.e. will totally bail in dangerous situations. Head for business. Used to enjoy pranks in his youth. Doesn't like to curse outright (e.g. feck
is a favourite alternative of his).
Ser Luther Wildes
: Flexible on this, presumably older than Hana though.
: Free Marches, wherever you like therein.
: Hanamene, Magnus, Kirkwall's Templar Order
: Templar - (current) Instructor; (formally) Knight-Tracker
: Demoted from Knight-Tracker to Instructor at the Templar Order in Kirkwall, after failing to kill a maleficar. The Thornecroft siblings intervened and saved his life, Hana killing the mage in question. The trio made it to Kirkwall together. Ser Luther spends a lot of time training the recruits in the Gallows and was once a favourite sparring partner of Hana's. Ser Luther would have known Hana's father. Luther's family surname, and family details, would be up to you.
: Fair-haired. The rest is up to you.
: Dutiful. Humble. Obliging. Took his demotion honourably. Actually enjoys being an instructor now. Again, the rest is up to you.
Bio (taken from Hana's backstory)
: More Info On Ser Luther"]Hana and Caethan's home would ultimately be destroyed in the Fifth Blight, however, which saw both of their grandparents killed. The siblings took flight, heading northward where they encountered a train of caravans beset upon by darkspawn. Among the survivors of the Ferelden convoy, were a templar and his apostate prisoner. Hana and Caeth witnessed the mage take advantage of the ensuing fray and in an effort to reclaim his own freedom, the prisoner turned on the templar. The mage attempted to take flight, battling through darkspawn to do so, while the injured templar likewise fought after him. Hana’s brother did not want to concern themselves with the templar’s quandary, but Hana insisted on helping the wounded man. Caeth complied only after being shamed to do so when his sister asked him what fate he might hope for, for their templar father, in a similar situation. The siblings took up weapons salvaged from the scene and the trio then set off after the apostate-turned-maleficar, escaping the darkspawn, and eventually caught up with the rebel mage. By then the templar’s health had worsened and the maleficar attempted to take advantage of the opportunity once more. The templar, to his credit, tried his best to cut down the mage but the templar's injuries were too great. The mage seemed sure enough about to finish the other man off. Hana could not stand aside. As the maleficar focused on disabling the templar further, Hana intervened and caught the mage by surprise with the plunge of her dagger. It was the first time Hanamene had ever taken the life of another person
The siblings and well-marred templar, a Free Marcher called Ser Luther, thereafter made it across the Waking Sea to the Free Marches, after securing passage on a cramped vessel packed with a number of refugees. In Kirkwall, the trio were unexpectedly reunited with Graeven who had led a number of refugees there as well. It was only when the two templars came together to exchange tales did Hana learn the full extent of the slain mage’s crimes. The mage had been wanted for a number of reasons in Kirkwall, dating from before the Blight. His name was Gauvain Angevine
, of Orlais, and he’d escaped capture many times before. He was not originally considered a maleficar despite his blossoming notoriety, thus the wounded templar had only wanted Gauvain to answer for his misconducts initially. The fact that the apostate became a maleficar in deciding to attack the templar made little difference to Hanamene. Circle mage, apostate, or maleficar
– it didn’t matter in this instance, Gauvain was reckless and had to be stopped before he hurt anyone else.
: DAD333 (or change it, if you want)
: She and Hana call one another pixie
, depending on if if they're being sweet
: Free Marches, wherever you like therein.
: Hanamene, Kirkwall Chantry
: (current) Chantry Sister; (formally) Bard.
: One of the first people to befriend Hana in Kirkwall. She often knows the most valuable and/or most entertaining gossip related to Kirkwall's Chantry and Circle. Few know anything about her life prior to her joining the Chantry, because she's sparing with the details. Only with those closest to her will she talk about her past romantic dalliances, and it's implied she's not nearly as innocent as she looks. She's been known to leverage her unassuming appearance, when needed.
: Long red hair. Some freckles on the bridge of her nose. Petite and looks much younger than she is.
: Devout Andrastian. Despite her vivacious personality, which she artfully plays down at the drop of a hat when she needs to, she has moments of incredible profundity. She has a big heart, but she can be saucy. Teasing and impish, but subtle about it. An incorrigible flirt when senior Chantry officials aren't around to scold her for it. Romantic and looks for opportunities to play matchmaker. Thinks Chantry and Circle officials should be allowed to marry, or at least not hide or seek a sanction for their affairs.
