Leliana's Past (Origins)
Faith (Dragon Age II)
Appearances:

Leliana is an Orlesian bard who came to the village of Lothering. She sought the refuge of the local Chantry, where she expected to spend her time in meditation and prayer to the Maker, asking Him for forgiveness for her past deeds. Leliana is a possible companion to the Warden, as well as a romance option for either gender in Dragon Age: Origins. She can also teach the bard specialization.

Leliana is also the protagonist of Leliana's Song DLC.

Background Edit

In Orlais, bards travel throughout the land, trading entertainment for the hospitality of the aristocracy while simultaneously plying a more sinister trade: Often, they are secretly spies or assassins. Leliana, however, speaks little of her history as a bard, having left her life behind long ago. She came to the village of Lothering seeking refuge in the Chantry, where she has assumed a life of quiet contemplation and prayer to the Maker, asking Him to forgive a life of deeds that her fellow sisters can only guess at. But although it is the last path that Leliana would ever choose for herself, she believes that the time will soon come to take up that old life once again. A higher calling awaits her, and with it a road to true redemption. The Maker has told her this, and she believes.[2]

Leliana was born in Orlais, but her mother was Fereldan, and so she considers herself such as well. After her mother's death, she was raised by Lady Cecilie, an Orlesian noble. Leliana's mother had served Lady Cecilie during the Orlesian occupation and followed her to Orlais after Ferelden's liberation. Living in Orlais, Leliana learned a great deal about the royal court and Orlesian culture.

In time she entered the Grand Game and began to work as a bard for Marjolaine, with whom she fell in love. During this period she ran errands for her lover and became a merciless killer and thief. However, her mentor took advantage of her devotion and framed Leliana for espionage, a crime punishable by death. Lured, captured, and beaten, Leliana was thrown into prison. She promptly escaped, and, after investigating the extent of Marjolaine's treachery, fled Orlais, branded as a traitor. Leliana eventually made her way to the village of Lothering and joined the local Chantry.

Leliana takes care to honor the Lothering cloister that took her in, and keeps symbols of Andraste's blessings close to her heart.

Involvement Edit

Dragon Age: Origins Edit

Leliana believes she has received a vision from the Maker, which compels her to assist the Warden in thwarting the impending Blight.

Leliana is first encountered at Dane's Refuge, a tavern in Lothering. When the Warden is set upon by soldiers loyal to Loghain Mac Tir, Leliana aids the Warden in the skirmish. When the combat is over, she explains her interest in joining their party and mentions her vision. Despite the Chantry's claim that the Maker does not communicate directly with individuals, Leliana is firm in her belief. This causes Alistair to suspect she is mentally unstable.

If Leliana is rejected initially, the Warden will gain dialogue options with the residents in Lothering who talk about her, and she will be found waiting at the village's exit to request to join the party a second time. At this point, Alistair suggests accepting her. If not accepted, she will never be seen again.

The Urn of Sacred Ashes

During The Urn of Sacred Ashes, the Guardian briefly talks to each of the party members about his or her past. When the Guardian speaks to Leliana, he states that the Maker only ever spoke to one mortal, Andraste, and accuses Leliana of making her vision up. He states she fabricated the story to get attention because she feared her life would become dull in the Chantry. Affronted by the accusation, Leliana denies the Guardian's version of things.

Due to her devout nature, Leliana will not stand idly by if the Warden chooses to defile the Ashes of Andraste. If she is in the party, she will attack, resulting in her death. She can be intimidated to avoid this; she will not forgive the Warden for the desecration, but will remain as a companion. Even if she is not in the party at the time, she will confront the Warden at the Party Camp. If she cannot be successfully persuaded, she will leave permanently.

Marjolaine

See also: Leliana's Past
Eventually, when Leliana reveals a certain amount of her past to the Warden, Marjolaine sends assassins to kill her. Upon defeat, the assassins confess Marjolaine is in Ferelden. The Warden will be prompted to join Leliana in settling her score with Marjolaine. During the quest, Leliana's personality can be "hardened" through certain dialogue options. Doing this will result in her being less likely to object to evil decisions, will alter her attitude towards Morrigan, and affect her possible endings, particularly in relation to the Warden.

Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening Edit

Leliana never appears in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening but is mentioned, if she was in love with the Warden at the end of Dragon Age: Origins; if so, the following entry may appear in the epilogue of Awakening:

Some claimed the commander reunited with the red-haired bard known as Leliana and that they adventure together still. The pair were spotted together in Denerim a year after the Blight's end. No matter the truth, the commander never did return to Vigil's Keep.
There is also a letter from her to her love interest.

Lelianas Song
A younger Leliana, during the events of the DLC

Accompanying her mentor Marjolaine on a high-risk mission, Leliana soon finds herself entangled in a game of intrigue that she cannot escape with just her beauty, charm, or stealth. The story begins in the Denerim Market District, where Marjolaine and Leliana, along with Tug and Sketch, arrive on a secret mission. Marjolaine gives Leliana different assignments to carry out, which she does with ease and signals Marjolaine to let her know that the job is done.

Afterwards, Marjolaine tells Leliana that she has another assignment: to plant incriminating documents at the Arl of Denerim's Estate. Leliana infiltrates the estate along with Tug and Sketch, witnessing Marjolaine flirt with the guard commander Harwen Raleigh, and plants the documents in the master's bedroom. Her curiosity gets the better of her, however, and upon taking a closer look at the documents, she discovers that they bear seals of the Orlesian military.

Upon returning to their hideout, Leliana confronts Marjolaine about this apparent treason and she agrees to go back to the Estate and retrieve the documents. They are able to collect the papers again but raise an alarm and are separated while fighting their way out. Upon escaping, Leliana looks for Marjolaine but her mentor unexpectedly stabs her in the stomach and betrays her and her companions to the guards. Betrayed, wounded, imprisoned, and probably tortured, Leliana is about to give in to despair when an unseen benefactor helps her escape from her cell.

Exploring the dungeon, Leliana finds and frees Sketch but discovers that Tug has been tortured to death. Another prisoner, Silas Corthwaite, decides to accompany them. After they find a way out, the companions are brought to Lothering by Leliana's benefactor, who turns out to be Revered Mother Dorothea. Dorothea reveals that Marjolaine's documents belong to her and were stolen and wants Leliana to retrieve them. Leliana and her companions chase after Marjolaine and Raleigh and finally corner them on an unnamed shore. After neutralizing Raleigh, Leliana once again confronts Marjolaine.

The narration cuts to Leliana returning the documents to Dorothea and joining the Chantry as a lay sister, having found faith in her ordeal. What happened between her and Marjolaine remains unexplained, but Marjolaine is still alive during Origins.

Dragon Age II Edit

Leliana meeting with Cassandra Pentaghast

The developers have confirmed that Leliana survives the events of Dragon Age: Origins, even if the Warden seemingly kills her in the Gauntlet.[3] Her codex entry in Dragon Age II is supposed to reflect one of her four possible fates (romanced, not romanced, killed, or not recruited). Regardless of whether she was actually recruited, she speaks as if she has accompanied the Warden.

Leliana first appears in The Exiled Prince DLC, during the Act 3 quest "Faith". She now goes by the alias "Sister Nightingale" and, according to Grand Cleric Elthina, functions as "the left hand of the Divine Justinia V", whom she knew as a Revered Mother during the events of the Leliana's Song DLC. Leliana has been sent to Kirkwall to assess whether an Exalted March against the city will be necessary to quell the conflict between local Templars and mages.[4] While tracking down a shadowy group known as "Resolutionists", she encounters Hawke and Sebastian Vael in Kirkwall Chantry and asks them to convince Elthina to flee Kirkwall and seek shelter in the Grand Cathedral of Val Royeaux. However, the Grand Cleric refuses to leave and is ultimately killed in the endgame quest "The Last Straw", just as Leliana had feared.

During their conversation, Hawke has a chance to ask Sister Nightingale whether she is "the Leliana" who helped the Warden in defeating the Blight, and she will confirm this. If an Origins save file where the Warden has romanced her was imported, Leliana will say that the Warden is "dear to her heart"; if not, she says that she has not seen the Warden in years, or, if the Warden married Anora or Alistair, that they are "a good King/Queen".

If in Origins the Warden chose to engage in a threesome with Leliana and Isabela, depending on whether or not Isabela is in the group the two will recognize each other; Isabela making a sexually suggestive remark about Leliana's alias "Sister Nightingale" to which Leliana will laugh.

She is present at Chateau Haine in Mark of the Assassin DLC, as a guest of Duke Prosper de Montfort. During the party, she reveals she is very well acquainted with Tallis and if you have completed "Faith" before "Heart of the Many", Leliana will mention meeting you once before.

In the closing cutscene of the game, Leliana is seen talking to Cassandra Pentaghast about her efforts to track down the Warden-Commander of Amaranthine and gain the Warden's aid in stopping the Mage-Templar War. In this encounter, she wears the armor bearing the insignia of the Seekers of Truth.

Dragon Age: Asunder Edit

Leliana continues to serve the Divine Justinia V in seeking a solution to the ongoing conflict following the incident at the Gallows.

She encounters Knight Captain Evangeline at the ball held for the Divine. She is also present when Rhys, Wynne, Pharamond and Adrian are granted an audience with the Divine upon their return from the Adamant fortress. She restrains Lord Seeker Lambert when he draws his blade to attack Rhys. She later takes part in the raid on the White Spire to free the captured mages and it is her presence that reveals to Lord Seeker Lambert that Divine Justinia was conspiring against the Templar Order. Afterwards Leliana sings at Wynne's funeral.

Dragon Age: The Masked Empire Edit

Splr tme
“I have no wish to discuss our family's bloody history. I know it quite well, thank you.” — Empress Celene
This article contains spoilers for Dragon Age: The Masked Empire. Click here to reveal them.

Leliana, in the capacity of the Divine's representative, meets Empress Celene I at the University of Orlais to discuss the mage-templar tensions. Although she tries to maintain her anonymity, the Empress quickly demonstrates her knowledge of both Leliana and Justinia's identities and past exploits. Celene then demands that the Divine makes an official statement on the mage-templar conflict within the next three weeks, or she won't be able to hold back the overeager nobles at her court from interfering with it. Leliana agrees to take this proposal to Justinia.

Later she reappears to bring Justinia's price for helping to quell the Chantry crisis to Celene: ending the elven revolt in Halamshiral. By doing so Celene would demonstrate the same control over her own affairs that she had demanded of the Divine. Given her adventures alongside elves in the past, Leliana clearly regrets the necessity of cracking down on the elven population, and bids Celene good luck before leaving.

Romance Edit

See Leliana/Romance for a detailed walkthrough on romancing her.
See Romance: Love Triangles for information regarding simultaneous romances involving both Leliana and another companion.
Leliana Love Scene
Leliana in an intimate moment

The Warden's first opportunity to kiss her occurs when her approval reaches "Adore" (71 or higher) and the Warden is not already in a romance with another party member. She starts a conversation in camp with the opening sentence "I enjoy the nights at camp. The night always seems more peaceful, to me. Safer." Nevertheless she isn't interested in a fling and will only bed the Warden once she's fallen in love with him/her. She will not fall in love with the Warden until her quest has been completed and her approval rating has reached 91 or higher. To increase her approval, talk to her a lot, listen to what she tells you, be supportive, avoid criticizing her when she talks about the Maker, give her gifts that are personally meaningful to her, do good deeds while she is in the party, and avoid evil acts (or at least avoid having Leliana in the party when performing them).

Note: Although it isn't clearly a romantic advance on the Warden's part, asking "She was special to you, wasn't she?" starts a romance when talking about what happened with Marjolaine during Leliana's personal quest. This happens regardless of what dialogue choices you make after that, even if you don't ask about her current romantic interests. Take care not to select this option if you only want to be friends.

Gifts Edit

Leliana prefers gifts with "Andraste" in their name, as well as other symbols of the Chantry. The white flowers called Andraste's Grace work particularly well. She loves shoes, too. Leliana can also be given a pet nug from the Idle Dwarf in Dust Town. It will stay with her throughout the game.

Trivia Edit

  • Leliana looks like Sharwyn from Neverwinter Nights, they both are bards and redheads and their personalities are similar. She also bears a resemblance to Imoen from Baldur's Gate.
  • In her BioWare's character file, her appearance is described as: "Red hair, pale, slender."[5]
  • Leliana is one of three companions who appears in the Sacred Ashes trailer. Her CGI model in the trailer is based on adult model Alexandra "Alleykatze" Stein.[6]
  • When imagining a single-note scent for Leliana, Sheryl Chee likened her to "sugared roses, incense and candy floss."[7]
  • If Leliana is given the Cute Nug, she will name it Schmooples. (To see for yourself, hold down tab on the pcIcon pcversion to highlight your companions names or left trigger on the console versions to note all names in the vicinity.)
  • If Leliana's approval is high enough, it is possible that she will hum a little melody when the player takes control of her.
  • If Leliana is hardened, she will be clad in armor during the coronation; however, if she remains unhardened, she will simply wear a dress.
  • Statistically, Leliana is the most commonly-picked romance option in Origins.[8]
  • If you talk to Bethany Hawke in the chantry in Dragon Age II, she will say, "I miss the Lothering chantry. Sister Leliana told the best stories."
  • If you talk to Aveline in the chantry in Dragon Age II, she will comment about feeling uncomfortable around chantry sisters due to a "red-haired trickster in Lothering."
  • Leliana's aliases include "Sister Nightingale" [9].
  • Despite an Orlesian accent, Leliana's features are strikingly Fereldan and reflect her heritage[10]

Bugs Edit

  • One important dialogue option that leads to Leliana's background quest can be lost if you get her approval too high without talking to her. Therefore, do not simply shower Leliana with gifts—talk to her and make sure you choose "I heard that in Orlais, minstrels are often spies" when that option appears. As her approval increases further, you can no longer ask it. Leliana's background quest requires her to first tell you a lie about her background, and then feel bad and come clean on it. If the question about spies disappears from the dialogue options before you ask it, you will never learn of Leliana's past and you will not get the quest to seek out her former bard master, Marjolaine. Using Feastday Gifts and Pranks is also a useful way to deal with this problem for those still encountering it.
  • A female human noble Warden who does not engage in a romance with Leliana and becomes Alistair's queen during the Landsmeet can still get a heartbroken speech from her back at camp on the topic if her approval rating is high. Oddly, it is possible to squeeze a few more approval points out of this dialogue if you are regretful about having to "end it" with Leliana, even if you were never in a romance with her to begin with.
  • If you give Leliana lots of gifts and have her at 100 approval, in Orzammar's Proving Grounds, when you are in the championship battle and are almost finished, Leliana will blurt out, "Oh thanks, that's wonderful!" as though she has been given a gift.
  • When Leliana asks elven magi Warden about living in the Alienage, there is no option to say that you don't remember the Alienage. This occurs even if you have already established that you remember nothing in the origin story.
  • Leliana has blue eyes, yet when she has blood all over herself her eyes turn a greenish colour.
  • ps3Icon ps3xbox360Icon xbox360 In Leliana's Song, if you put a point in Coup De Grace, it will vanish when Leliana levels up.
  • If an Awakening or Witch Hunt (instead of Origins) save game is imported in Dragon Age II, the game will not acknowledge active romance between Leliana and the Warden (and she will not refer to the Warden as "dear to her heart"). This is because the unmodded DA2 checks imported approval ratings instead of romance flags to determine Origins romance, and while the flags are imported properly, neither Awakening, nor the DLC campaigns keep the approval ratings of absent party members. An unofficial fix exists to address this problem.
Note: This has been fixed as of patch 1.03.
  • A male human noble who is arranged to marry Anora will also receive the heartbroken speech from Leliana even if they weren’t in a romantic relationship.
