House Aeducan traces its ancestry back to the Paragon Aeducan, the greatest warrior in Orzammar's history, who beat back the darkspawn hordes of the First Blight. Endrin was only the second son of King Ansgar Aeducan but became the royal heir when he convinced his elder brother to fight in a Proving against a convicted murderer and died. According to Bhelen, Endrin was responsible for the poison found on the murderer's blade.

Endrin Aeducan is first seen during the ceremony for his second child's inauguration as Orzammar's commander during the Dwarf Noble Origin. The next day he participates in A Noble Expedition in an effort to support a Grey Warden mission as well as reclaim the Aeducan Shield. In the course of these events, the Dwarf Noble is either induced to kill, or framed for murdering, Prince Trian; due to overwhelming evidence in any event, the king is convinced to exile his favorite child. Depending on dialogue choices, his misgivings (or further disappointments) may be expressed at the site of Trian's death, or relayed by Lord Pyral Harrowmont when Endrin's disgraced child is sent alone into the Deep Roads.
When The Warden reaches Orzammar, it is revealed that King Endrin recently died of grief over the death and exile of his two eldest children, resulting in political turmoil. Rumors and suspicions that he was poisoned are never confirmed.
If the Dwarf Noble resolves the quest Of Noble Birth and restores his son's noble status, he may name the child Endrin.If the Warden was a Dwarf Commoner and Bhelen becomes king, Bhelen and Rica's son is named Endrin.
