Dragon Age: Origins companions are the people who accompany the Warden on their journey through Ferelden. The Warden can make decisions which will result in a companion leaving, or even dying. If a companion leaves the Warden or dies, his or her equipment will be lost.
Approval plays an important part in companion interaction. It changes based on plot decisions or gifts. High approval provides combat bonuses, the ability to have longer conversations, and possible romance options; low approval may lead a companion to desert you.
|Legend:|| The character has a companion quest.|
The character can be romanced.

Some unnamed temporary companions can also join you during the Tower of Ishal quest. If you are a mage you get a Tower Guard and a Soldier; human noble, you get a Circle Mage as you will already have Dog; else, you get the Tower Guard and a Circle Mage.
If you saved the Circle of Magi, during the Arl of Redcliffe quest, you can choose to send First Enchanter Irving to The Fade to free Connor from the Desire demon that has possessed him, allowing you to control him as a playable character for a brief period of time. Alternatively, you can send Jowan to the Fade (thus control him) if you let him help (by freeing him from dungeons) and not use the blood magic to enter the Fade.
