Hero's Background...

If Hero of Ferelden (preset) is selected or imported from a Human Noble background from DA:O:

The Hero of Ferelden was the younger son/the daughter of Bryce Cousland, Teyrn of Highever. When Arl Rendon Howe's forces attacked Castle Cousland and murdered most of the Cousland family, the Hero escaped to safety with Grey Warden Commander Duncan, who then recruited him/her into the order.

If the Martyr (preset) is selected or imported from a Dalish Elf background from DA:O:

The Hero of Ferelden once belonged to a clan of Dalish Elves. An encounter with a tainted magical mirror corrupted the Hero, and only the Grey Wardens held the cure. To save the Hero's life, the clan gave him/her up to Grey Warden Commander Duncan and the order.

If No Compromise (preset) is selected or imported from a Dwarf Noble background from DA:O:

The Hero of Ferelden was born to noble House Aeducan of Orzammar, the second son/the daughter of King Endrin Aeducan. After being charged with fratricide, the Hero was exiled to the Deep Roads. There, he/she met Grey Warden Commander Duncan, who then recruited him/her into the order.

If imported from a City Elf background from DA:O:

The Hero of Ferelden grew up in Denerim's impoverished elven alienage. A bitter clash with a Denerim noble during the Hero's wedding resulted in the Hero facing arrest by the city guards. The Grey Warden Commander Duncan recruited the Hero, saving him/her from a certain death sentence.

If imported from a Mage background from DA:O:

The Hero of Ferelden belonged to the Circle of Magi in Ferelden, and resided in the tower at Lake Calenhad for most of their life. First Enchanter Irving recommended the Hero to Grey Warden Commander Duncan; shortly after the Hero's Harrowing, Duncan recruited him/her into the order.

If imported from a Dwarf Commoner background from DA:O:

The Hero of Ferelden was born casteless in the slums of Orzammar. He/She impersonated a man of Warrior Caste in Orzammar's Provings, a crime punishable by death. However, the Hero's showing in the arena impressed Grey Warden Commander Duncan so much that he recruited the Hero before he/she could be executed.


Outcome of The Final Battle...

If the Hero of Ferelden (preset) is selected or imported from a save where the Hero survives through performing the Dark Ritual:

The Hero fought and killed the Archdemon, and lived to tell the tale. With the Archdemon gone, the darkspawn ranks broke, and the horde was easily routed.

If the Martyr (preset) is selected or imported from a save where the Hero makes the ultimate sacrifice:

The Hero fought and killed the Archdemon, making the ultimate sacrifice and dying to save Ferelden. With the Archdemon gone, the darkspawn ranks broke, and the horde was easily routed.

If No Compromise (preset) is selected or imported from a save where either Alistair or Loghain makes the sacrifice:

The armies the Hero had raised killed the Archdemon. With the Archdemon gone, the darkspawn ranks broke, and the horde was easily routed.


After the Blight...

If Hero of Ferelden (preset), No Compromise (preset) is selected or imported from a save where the Hero survived:

After ending the Blight, the Hero of Ferelden took up the mantle of Warden-Commander and began the task of rebuilding the order in Ferelden.

If imported from a save where a Female Human Noble married Alistair and became Queen (Appears along with the Warden-Commander entry):

After ending the Blight, the Hero of Ferelden was wed to King Alistair and crowned queen of Ferelden. She and the king now rule the country together.
