I know I've brought a similair subject up before but I can't help but wonder if we will see the unknown race of the Fex in the game that will most likely end the dragon age series but will probably be the begining of a new series of games, a new age.

I don't know if I'm the only one but I think it's really exciting with a mysterious race we have never encountered before and have only heard mentioned briefly by David Gaider.

What we know of the Fex is very little but we can still guess a lot about them from what we know. David Gaider let slip that The Fex are a race native to Par Vollen. From this we can guess that they are most likely forced to coexist with the Qunari. Since the qunari are somewhat intolerant against everyone not of the faith of the qun the most likely answer would be that they are either enslaved by the qunari, in war with them or that they have converted to the qun. Since we know that the qunaris arival at par vollen was a one sided blood bath I find it most unlikely they are at war with the qunari but it might be that the fex and the qunari have a similair relationship to eachother to that of elves and humans, some slaves and some living in scattered tribes over par vollen, maybe not powerfull enough to start a war but still agresive towards the qunari.

However if the Fex are enslaved by the qunari we might see them in Dragon age 3, something about the Arishok saying "We will return" or "We will be back" I forgot what it was but it was something like that. If the qunari return they might bring the Fex with them, maybe as slaves and labourers or maybe as warriors.

What do you think? Will we ever see this mysterious race called the Fex we know so little about? What are the chances that we will see them in dragon age 3? Will the limited budget keep them from beeing able to ever show uss this race called The Fex? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Blighter (talkcontribs) 19:48, July 16, 2011 (UTC)

I've thought about this too; in the codex about the qunari, they drop the reference to the Fex, and that's it. It's mysterious enough to think that we'll see them again at some point. I was thinking they'd be a twist, like while the Fex may be weak in strength they are very strong in, say, psionics, and the Fex are actually the masters of the Qunari rather than the other way around; that's why we haven't seen them outside of Par Valon. Just a thought. Gunslinger1 (talk) 01:01, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

You mean like illithids in the Forgotten Realms series, (D and D) giant flying mind squids qith an army of slaves, and an alliance with dark elves. There does seem to be some similarities with the Qunari now that you mention it.EWRPV (talk) 04:09, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

I think they might be the halflings of DA --Cpt. Miller (talk) 21:19, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

They could be the human's ancestors, since elven lore says humans came from Par Vollen.--LordRevan25 (talk) 21:40, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

I thought that codex meant humans first arrived in Thedas on Par Vollen, and they crossed the sea like the qunari, only at different times. EWRPV (talk) 23:26, July 17, 2011 (UTC)
True, but they probably spent quite a bit of time on Par Vollen before they decided to travel to Thedas, or more accurately Arlathan at that time. Tevinter was probably founded in Par Vollen and then they decided to conquer the elves.--LordRevan25 (talk) 00:06, July 18, 2011 (UTC)

I wouldn't know where to find an answer to this but could the fog warriors be part of the fex? Tommyspa (talk) 23:49, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

Slaves of the qunari? Do you know anything about the Qun? Psionics? Do you know anything about DA? Implying that psionics is a new form of magic, the users of which dominate the Qunari? Do you know anything about the Qun? A specific race being regarded as less or more than any other in the eyes of the Qunari? Do you know anything about the Qun? Queries? --Petronec (talk) 02:49, July 18, 2011 (UTC)

Petronec stfu, if you got nothing to say except to bitch at others than just do everyone a favour and shut the hell up, may I remind you of a banter between Shale and Sten in which Shale asks about the proper place of humans and Sten replies that if their rightful place is under their feet then that is where they shall be, slaves? Seriously, just shut up and let uss have a serious disgussion (unsigned)

I am having a serious discussion, despite my glibness... "stfu," in contrast, does not even nearly constitute a serious discussion. What's a discussion with absolutely no other side? Did you think everyone would just whole-heartedly agree with everything everyone else said? Don't be daft oh and sign your work... Now in reference to what you actually said. Note Sten says "If." I do remember that conversation and it comes with other parts like when Shale asks about how the Qunari value humans etc. I think he also asks about how valuable birds are, but I digress: back to "If." The Qun is all about where everyone's proper place is and since Sten is of the Beresaad and a Sten, as opposed to being those gals in charge, the name of which escapes me, he would never presume to know anyone's place, especially not an entire race. Have you heard the conversations between Sten and Zevran, discussing some elves being in charge of humans. Some. The qun doesn't discriminate by race, just what who is best at, although traditional Qunari are generally bred for specific roles, tipping the odds somewhat. Even with Qunari's purposeful genetic engineering (ie. breeding the strongest Qunari possible for a strong warrior, as refernced in the codex) they always assign that Qunari what they are best at, at the appointed time, regardless of what the initial intention of it's breeding was. Here is your serious discussion... Queries?--Petronec (talk) 12:01, July 18, 2011 (UTC)

lol, why do you like to end with 'queries'? anyhow, just to join this discussion (I usually can't be bothered discussing hypothetical lore); The qun would probably find a place for the Fex, given that they are a sentient race and will most likely have some use. However, like that crazy elf, the Fex may not appreciate the loss of culture/civilisation which the qunari like to 'gift' people with. So in my imaginary thedas, I like to imagine the Fex been in some sort of japan-parallel when they were getting 'influenced' by europeans. (Note: most of my knowledge of japan during that era comes from the last samurai so I could be wrong haha). Anyway, in this imaginary setting, the fex are too small of population to be seen outside par vollen and while skilled warriors (think samurai/ninja-esque), their unique sort of fighters aren't suitable in the qunari war-machine. so as such they are mostly left alone under qunari rule while young brash rebels seek the glory days of the old (seeking some sort of cultural identity yadiah),. Obviously they can't do much against the qunari but there is an element of unrest- allowing future DA franchises to explore it. I think the oriental/exotic civilisation thing could be pretty useful (though unnecessary) addition to the game. Mr Afk (talk) 12:18, July 18, 2011 (UTC)

I ended those times with queries because I didn't expect people would take to kindly to how blunt I was being. I don't think I'm gonna end this one with queries... now puzzle over whether it's because you pointed it out or if I wasn't going to do it anyway haha. I think that's an awful lot of speculation afk but I can definitely see something similar to a ninja in the Fex considering Par Vollen is mostly rainforest, although I'm not sure they wouldn't necessarily fit into the war machine all the time. Guerrila warfare could be useful should they find themselves fighting northwards into Fereldan through the Korcari wilds by some bizzare twist of fate and twisty-turny environments like rainforests with poison and disease and sinkholes breed crafty cowards, perfect for that sort of thing don't you agree? But seeking lost glory would be a relatively easy thing for the fex to begin doing, easy for lack of a more suitable word, seeing as how it is very easy to hide in a rainforest and epecially so when you've been there longer than the Qunari. Although..... I'm not sure how willing the guys and gals at bioware would be to venturing into the idea of too clear parallels with existing cultures, just seems a little too easy --Petronec (talk) 13:56, July 18, 2011 (UTC)

I just pray to the Maker the Fex don't end up being a furry race :/ (DDragonfly1990 (talk) 21:30, July 18, 2011 (UTC))
