I am in the process of reading The Stolen Throne, haven't read The Calling yet, and have not been able to find this in a forum. Is it possible the secret between Maric and Flemeth is Morrigan? Maybe Maric's her father? Any thoughts would be great. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk)
The secret or at least some of it is revealed in The Calling. The Silent Grove(The comic that came out earlier this year)revealed there was more to the promise then what we're told in The Calling.--Vincent Cousland (talk) 16:16, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
If you check the topic "Did Flemeth free Fereldan" you'll see one guy's theory that Flemeth was the dragon that swooped down and decimated much of the Orlesian army at the Battle of the River Dane (which incidentally was the cause of the current age being the Dragon Age), and that maybe the secret promise was that Maric had her do it in exchange for... something; not sure what. I doubt she'd be interested in having a kid with Cailin though, both her and, by extension, Morrigan, show very little interest in temporal power, especially nobility/royalty, so she'd have no reason to raise an illegitimate child to take the throne or anything. --UrLeingod (talk) 16:21, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
So, wait a minute. If Maric and Flemeth had a baby that would become Morrigan, does that mean making Alistair do the Dark Ritual is now incest? O_o Anyways, I prefer to avoid anything to do with Silent Grove, as I believe the story line is unnecessary; i.e. Alistair leaving his duties as king on the wayside so he can go off searching for his daddy-dearest who didn't even bother to *try* and raise him. As for that whole Theirin blood being related to dragons subplot, I call bullshit, since when does Calenhad's legend ever mention his blood being important? EzzyD (talk) 16:32, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
There's nothing to refute the theory, but nothing to support it either. I personally doubt that ever happened (I can't remember exactly but I don't think Flemeth appeared as a ravishing young maiden and I believe Maric had, um, some tastes), though. That, and Morrigan looks a bit younger than thirty, unless she is using some youth spell.
I think it's more likely that the promise was something like "you must do something when that big bad calamity comes to your nation" or something like that. I just can't imagine their big secret being "let's have sex". - 17:01, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
If Maric willigly wants to aid Flemeth's evil plan, I can imagine Alistair rejecting his dad and his plan just like in Code Geass Lelouch did to his father, because the plan was evil and child was abandoned by father. I know these are different franchise, but such similarity would be interesting.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk)
- Seriously annon, do you always HAVE TO compare EVERY situation to Lelouch from Code Geass? Ccg08 (talk) 07:31, July 5, 2012 (UTC)
