Orson Haver is a dwarf companion in the A Tale of Orzammar DLC for Dragon Age: Origins. He can be found at the Tapster's Tavern by the front counter. He is extremely drunk and easily confused.

Involvement Edit

for A Tale of Orzammar.

After speaking to the Dwarven Nobleman, the player must recruit Orson to aid him in the expedition. Since Orson is already quite drunk, he will join the expedition merely at the suggestion that he is already part of it and simply confused due to his intoxicated state. Despite being ostensibly a drunken vagrant, Orson is quite adept in battle and is already equipped with armor as well a sword and shield. He will assist the player as they fight through the Ruined Thaig as well as in the final battle against the dwarven nobleman and his bodyguard. Should Bhelen's offer be refused, Orson will reveal that in reality he was working for Bhelen all along and his drunken antics were merely an act, by fatally knifing the player in the back.

Note: Even if the player did not recruit Orson, they will still die regardless upon rejecting Bhelen's offer; Orson simply does not appear behind them, making the death appear somewhat confusing.
