Ariane is a Dalish elven warrior, and one of three companions for the Warden-Commander in the Witch Hunt DLC for Dragon Age: Origins.

Background Edit

Ariane is a gifted Dalish warrior, and her clan's best hunter. When an ancient artifact belonging to the clan's Keeper is stolen, one with a history tied to the very roots of the elven people, Ariane is charged with the task of reclaiming it. She is determined to carry out her solemn duty, and when her task turns out to intersect with the Warden's quest to find Morrigan she realizes that there may be far more to the artifact's disappearance than simple theft.

Involvement Edit

Ariane is found in Flemeth's empty hut at the start of Witch Hunt. The Warden can talk with her and she joins your party. She plays an extremely important role in finding the Lights of Arlathan since Finn has to use her blood to track them.

Although she initially threatens Dog on her first encounter with the Warden, she becomes quite friendly with the Mabari as the game progresses and it is soon revealed that she is able to understand Dog's barking. She becomes friendly to the Warden and Finn as the game progresses, though the brevity of Witch Hunt precludes any romance options.

Depending on the choices made by the Warden in the final sequence of Witch Hunt, Ariane's personal quest may or may not actually be completed.
