Rasaan is a Qunari tamassran.

Background Edit

Rasaan serves directly under the Ariqun and was long ago chosen as the Ariqun's eventual successor. One of Rasaan's most prominent duties is to accompany the Arishok on expeditions to advise the Arishok as to the 'will of the Qun'.

for Dragon Age II.
While the Arishok was stranded in Kirkwall and unwilling to call for aid from Par Vollen, Rasaan was stranded in the Qunari city of Qunandar, unable to perform her duties. Since a new Arishok was chosen in 9:34 Dragon, Rasaan has been at his side almost constantly. She was most recently seen in the fortress of Akhaaz in Seheron, where the Arishok is said to amass a force of dreadnoughts.[1]

Involvement Edit

for Dragon Age: Those Who Speak.

Rasaan is aboard one of the Qunari dreadnoughts that are attacking Isabela's ship on its way to Seheron. Rasaan gives orders to take the enemy prisoners. She subsequently interrogates Isabela on Seheron.

During Isabela's initial interrogation, Rasaan asks Isabela if she knows what qamek is. When Isabela tells her that she does not know about qamek, Rasaan counters that she knows Isabela is lying. Rasaan re-iterates that qamek is used to free men and women who are beyond redemption, and Isabela will submit as well, one way or another.

Rasaan asks Isabela to reveal her true name. When Isabela refuses, Rasaan reminds her of the crimes she has committed against the Qunari, and that were they human, Isabela would have been executed. In between demanding Isabela's real name, Rasaan probes Isabela about her past, and how she came to be as she is. As Isabela's past is revealed, Rasaan comforts her, and tells her that it is not too late for redemption, that inside Isabela is a woman who fights against injustice and struggles to make things right.

Isabela and Rasaan

Rasaan fighting against Isabela

This angers Isabela, who tells Rasaan that the Qunari are butchers, causing Rasaan to strike her and force her toward the qamek. Rasaan says, "Then let all your names be erased. The Qun welcomes you." Isabela breaks free of Rasaan's grip and renders Rasaan unconscious. A guard enters the cell, and Isabela escapes while stealing the guard's dagger in the process. An injured Rasaan awakes and tells the guard to find Isabela and inform the Arishok. The other Qunari guards think Isabela will try to escape, but Rasaan knows that Isabel will try to free her crew first.

Rasaan catches up with Isabela outside the cell holding her crew. Enraged, Rasaan calls Isabela an animal, wrestles her to the ground and attempts to kill her. Eventually Isabela gains the upper hand, holds Rasaan down as she reveals her real name, Naishe, and moves to stab Rasaan. Instead, Isabela drives the dagger into the ground next to Rasaan's head and spares her. After freeing the crew, Isabela attempts to lock Rasaan into a cell as more Qunari arrive. It ultimately proves unnecessary, as King Alistair brokers an alliance with the Arishok. Isabela privately admits it was satisfying to see Rasaan squirm.

Quotes Edit

  • "The Qun tells us, 'To call a thing by its name is to know its reason in the world. To call a thing falsely is to put out one's own eyes.' We have names—they are chosen carefully."
  • "Mistakes can be corrected. There is a place for you."

Trivia Edit

  • Rasaan is the first female of the qunari race to be encountered in the Dragon Age series. She is the second female qunari overall, however, as Tallis was introduced earlier.
  • The name 'Rasaan' translates in Qunlat as "emissary" but also as "Chosen Heir"
