- “I recognize a fighter of darkspawn. It marks you. That's why we Legion of the Dead abandon our lives so we can face them without fear.”
Dragon Age: Origins Edit
Kardol is first seen in the Dead Trenches with a company of legionnaires attempting to cut through the darkspawn forces. If questioned about Branka, he will regard the search as a foolish endeavor, and states that he cannot order an assault in Bownammar without orders from a king. When the Warden presses the line and defeats the darkspawn at the gate, Kardol and his men will move the line forward, thanking the Warden.After the Warden has returned from the Deep Roads and chooses the new King of Orzammar, Kardol appears in the Orzammar Diamond Quarter. He announces that the Legion will attempt to cut off the horde's retreat after Urthemiel is slain, but he can be persuaded (four points in Coercion are required) to bring the Legion topside to fight the Blight directly. However, if the Warden is a dwarf, he will gladly offer the support of the Legion without asking him. If the Legion participates in The Battle of Denerim, he will appear as an ally atop the roof of Fort Drakon during the final battle against the Archdemon.
The Darkspawn Chronicles Edit
- Kardol's journal offers some information about armored ogres.
- It's possible to "kill" Kardol and his Legionnaires with repeated applications of area-of-effect spells when encountered in the Dead Trenches for decent experience and Kardol may drop a piece of the Legion armor, although this means they cannot help fight darkspawn. However, this will not stop him from reappearing later in the Diamond Quarter.
