An entire unit of men, all slain by one creature. I didn't believe it at first, your Perfection, but it appears that this is so. We have a survivor, and while at first I thought his rantings pure exaggeration... it appears to be no simple skeleton. The descriptions of the creature's abilities were eerily similar to those our brothers at Marnas Pell encountered almost a century ago: men pulled through the air to skewer themselves on the creature's blade, and attacks so quick that it was able to assault multiple opponents at once. No, your Perfection, what we have here is indeed a revenant and nothing less. ―From a letter to Divine Amara III, 5:71 Exalted[1]

A revenant is a form of undead that is created when a powerful demon, usually of desire or pride, possesses a corpse. They have access to some forms of magic, usually of utilitarian nature, which assist its primarily-martial fighting style.

Involvement Edit

Dragon Age: Origins Edit

Eleven revenants can be found during the campaign, as a part of four separate quests:

Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening Edit

It is possible to encounter revenants in the Blackmarsh after escaping the Fade. The various Fade Portals spawn various undead and demonic enemies, including revenants, though at this point in the game they are only Elite level and far easier to dispatch than their boss-level, Origins counterparts.

The Golems of Amgarrak Edit

Dragon Age II Edit

Miscellaneous Revenants can be found during the game, including:

Dragon Age: Inquisition Edit
