Charade Amell is the daughter of Gamlen Amell and his estranged wife, Mara. She is involved in the quest, Gamlen's Greatest Treasure.

Background Edit

Charade's birth name is unknown. She was unaware of her father's identity until her mother, Mara, told her of Gamlen on her deathbed. Charade set out to find her father, setting up an elaborate scheme to lure him into a meeting. Charade is an archer of some skill and is shown to have a close relationship with Hawke, her cousin, following her potential meeting with her father.

for Dragon Age II.

Charade is encountered towards the end of the Gamlen's Greatest Treasure quest, in Act 3 of Dragon Age II. She located the Gem of Keroshek, which Gamlen wasted his life trying to find. She sent him an anonymous note informing him that she had found the gem, and had set many clues all over Kirkwall. She also hired several mercenary groups to capture him and bring him to her. Gamlen ignored the note, but Charade's cousin, Hawke, pursued it.

They eventually meet, but at the same time were confronted by Veld, leader of the mercenaries, who accused Hawke of murdering his brother, Mekel. Charade then realized that the brothers defied her instructions to only hand over the note so they could take the gem for themselves. After dispatching Veld and his mercenaries, Hawke can either take the gem off Charade or arrange a meeting with Gamlen.

If the latter option is chosen, Gamlen is touched by the meeting and reveals that he never knew Mara was with child, and if he had, he would have gone after her. He tells Charade that they should meet regularly, and Charade says that she likes the idea of getting to know her father. Gamlen tells her to keep safe before she smiles at him and leaves.

She sends Hawke a letter, suggesting that they are close, and expresses a wish to know her cousin better as well; she also asks many awkward questions.

Charade is mentioned in the War table quests A Trouble of Red Jennies and Red Jenny and the Tantervale Charade. She is an associate of Sera and a member of the Friends of Red Jenny operating in Tantervale.

Trivia Edit

  • Unlike the rest of Hawke's family members, Charade's appearance is fixed and does not change to match Hawke's appearance at creation. This apparent discrepancy is explained when Gamlen "thanks the Maker" that she got her mother's looks.
  • She is named after her personality, making a long game to get Gamlen's attention.
