"It takes more than legends to win a battle."
After cutscene of Loghain back in Denerim: "Understand this: I will brook no threat to this nation... from you or anyone."
Loghain was born a farmer during a time when his country was under foreign occupation. When he was still a boy, he joined the resistance, where his considerable tactical genius quickly became apparent. He became close friends with Prince Maric, the last true heir to the Fereldan throne, and together they led the rebels to drive out the forces of the Orlesian Empire. Maric raised his friend to the nobility, and Loghain is now more of a symbol than a man: He represents the Fereldan ideals of hard work and independence.
If he is killed at the Landsmeet: "War is cruel. Every soul who fought alongside Maric knows this. And in it, there are no such things as innocents, only the living and the dead, and the degrees of guilt both bear."
If permitted to join the Grey Wardens at the Landsmeet: "I passed your test. Fate has a twisted sense of humor, it seems."
