Background Edit

Amund is a Skywatcher, an Avvar priest of the Lady of the Skies, tasked with reading her portents and rendering up the bones of the dead as offerings. When the sky tore open at Haven, he knew the lady had spoken. Now he follows the strange lowlanders of the Inquisition on his quest to carry out her will. He may not be entirely sure what they're doing, but he's certain he will find out what the lady wants of him along the way.

Involvement Edit

If the Inquisitor seals the Fade rift that Sky Watcher is observing, it will persuade him that the Inquisitor was sent to heal the Lady of the Skies and their mission is a holy calling.

After completing Lost Souls, Sky Watcher will approach the Inquisitor again and offer his aid to the Inquisition. If accepted he will join the Inquisition as an agent.

Note: Skipping the rift and going straight to the Avvar stronghold will result in him not being present after rescuing the Inquisition soldiers, which in turn means he cannot be recruited as an agent.
