- “My capacity to feel differs from yours, but you also differ from all other beings. You are no more a person than others, and I am no less a person than you are.”
Owain is a Tranquil who manages the magical stockroom of the Circle Tower in Ferelden. As one of the Tranquil, Owain can no longer dream or feel emotions, and is considered by demons to be an undesirable target for possession. Whilst it is not unheard of to force an apprentice mage to undergo the Rite of Tranquility, Owain chose it voluntarily in preference to undergoing the potentially fatal test known as The Harrowing. He feels no regret for his decision.
