The Castle of Caer Oswin is the seat of Bann Loren, a pious Fereldan noble who is little loved for his fickle allegiance.
In 9:41 Dragon, a cult known as the Order of Fiery Promise overthrows Bann Loren and seizes Caer Oswin as their new headquarters. With the aid of the Lord Seeker, Lucius Corin, the cult lures members of the Seekers of Truth one by one and ambushes them at Caer Oswin so they cannot interfere with the conflict with Corypheus.
