This is something that I thought of recently. The Dragon Age is named so because during the Battle of River Dane in 8:99 Blessed, a High Dragon was seen rampaging. This rampage quickly turned to the Orlesian side of the Frostback Mountains, slaughtering them and forcing them to flee. This likely had a role in the Ferelden victory. What I wanted to ask is this: could that have been Flemeth the Shapeshifter? After all, she does have a tendency to turn into flying creatures and change the course of history. Maybe she thought Ferelden needed to be freed for some reason? She seemed to know how important the Warden and Alistair are, which implies she knows a great deal about things that haven't actually happened. I might be forgetting something here, so feel free to point that out if that is true.
You maybe on to something, I mean Flemeth is a cunning old bird and it would not suprise me if she had a hand in the war to free Ferelden from Orlay. All hail Darkside! 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:43, June 8, 2012 (UTC)
No it was the high dragon you can fight during the Sacred Ashes Quest. The Frostbacks are not to far from the sight of the battle of River Dane and I believe it is said somewhere the dragon came from the mountains.
That's also possible, and probably even more likely. I just really like the idea of Flemeth being the first dragon seen in a very long time, and the fact that the Dragon Age, and thus the entire series, is named after her.
Hmmm, maybe rename the game Flemeth age! Hehe. The high dragon thing proberly makes more sense however, it may have become inraged by the bright Orlesian armour? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:38, June 8, 2012 (UTC)
Sounds like a decent enough spin-off haha. Although swooping down as a winged creature and changing the course of history is kind of her MO.
That was the most perfect response to anything I have ever heard. +2 Internets and Cunning to you good sir!
I admit I had this theory myself, it just seems like the perfect timing for a dragon to randomly show up after centuries just to tear up the Orlaisian forces. Flemeth may not have been the dragon, but I have no doubt that the dragons returning right then and there was no accident. And considering what (little) we learned in the Silnt Grove, I think it's obvious that Flemeth was at least somehow involved. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 18:37, June 8, 2012 (UTC)
Is it possible? Sure it is, but the evidence that supports it is circumstantial, and Flemeth has no history of directly involving herself in such affairs, quite the contrary. She saves the warden, who defeats the blight, she saves Hawke, who delivers the amulet, and Loghain and Maric fight the rebellion without her getting directly involved. To shapeshift into a dragon and fight the Orlesians for the Fereldens is very unlike her. Besides, as it has beenpointed out, there was already a perfectly adequate High Dragon sitting a few leagues away, so there is no reason for her to have needed to have done anything. ----Isolationistmagi 01:43, June 9, 2012 (UTC)
Flemeth doesn't need a reason...maybe Orlesians are tasty!
The Flemeth theory is pretty interesting, but I always found the Frostback High Dragon the most likely culprit. After all, she comes down and tries to kill you for ringing a gong, imagine what she'd do when hundreds of jackasses in big shiny armor come stomping around on horseback. --UrLeingod (talk) 19:44, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
Flemith Probably went to the mountains to help Ferelden and saw the high dragon and took some cheating way (by powerful spell or ritual) to transform in to the high dragon so the people could recognise what had saved Ferelden from Orlay. --Agentsmit58 (talk) 13:31, June 30, 2012 (UTC)
Well one thing we know in the end of the Witch Hunt DLC Morrigan says that is Flemeth that we should fear but we never get to know why and why she ran away with the kid or even why she used the mirror. --Zumbox (talk) 15:29, June 30, 2012 (UTC)
This is a very interesting and plausible theory. I know in The Stolen Throne novel, Maric struck a deal with Flemeth early on in the book, but it's never said what the deal was exactly. And this is before the Battle of the River Dane. This only makes me more suspicious of Flemeth in future DA games. --Shadow501 (talk) 15:43, June 30, 2012 (UTC)
