Operation text Edit
While historical documents shed light on Orinna's time as Inquisitor Ameridan's companion, little is known of her early life in Orzammar. The Orzammar Shaperate contains an immeasurable wealth of knowledge pertaining to the thaig's past. Professor Kenric has made several requests to study their records, all of which were denied. As an ally of the Inquisition, Orzammar may be more willing to answer a petition from Skyhold.
Adviser suggestions Edit
We can send ambassadors to Orzammar to make the request. The right gifts to the right people may expedite the process.
Information for information, then. I have reports on Carta activity the king may find... interesting

If Harrowmont is King:
Though King Harrowmont of Orzammar rushes to ensure his thaig's continued alliance with the Inquisition, he cannot grant Professor Kenric access to the Orzammar Shaperate. He trusts we will be understanding. As a sign of continued friendship, he offers an approved selection of copies of Shaperate records to be presented to Professor Kenric.
A note from Kenric follows:
The Shaperate's notes are incredible. I'd hoped for some mention of Orinna's parentage but - wait. I'm not complaining! A few documents is far more than I had before.
Orinna met Ameridan while fighting demons in the Deep Roads, as history states. Since dwarves do not possess magic, Ameridan had come to learn ways in which non-mages could fight demons more effectively. Orinna was gifted in this field and had developed several unique methods. Apparently Orinna did not get along with Ameridan's friend Haron (at the time); it was quite a shock when she announced her departure from the thaig. I'm surprised King Harrowmont sent the leaving bit, actually. Fascinating.
There's not much more on Orinna, although your commander may find some of the battle references of interest. I will see that they remain in Skyhold's possession.

If Bhelen is King:
King Bhelen has graciously agreed to grant Professor Kenric access to the Orzammar Shaperate—once Kenric has completed his work in Frostback Basin, of course. In the meantime, copied records on Orinna have been sent ahead as a sign of this agreement. King Bhelen hopes our alliance will continue to benefit all involved.
A note from Kenric follows. The first paragraph consists of a crossed-out series of thank-yous, each more effusive than the last.
I could not express how thrilled I am to visit the Shaperate. The documents they sent are incredible.
It seems Orinna was born to a Warrior caste family. The theory that she was a runaway noble was romantic—I rather fancied the notion myself. But knowing the truth makes her seem more like a person than a legend. Much preferable, in my opinion.

Especially since it put a damper on her betrothal talks between Orinna's family and another well-to-do house.
The document also includes some descriptions of Orinna's combat methods that may interest your commander. I will see that these remain in Skyhold's possession.
