Enchantment?


Sandal Feddic is a dwarven rune savant and the adopted son of Bodahn, a surface dwarf merchant.

Background Edit

Bodahn Feddic of the Merchant caste found Sandal when he was five years old while searching for ancient dwarven artifacts in a location past and below the Aeducan Thaig. Sandal was a young boy with hair pale like marble and clear blue eyes and no Blight could be seen in him. The boy was within a chamber that contained a glittering wall depicting ancient tales of heroes and Paragons. Elves, dwarves, dragons and other unknown creatures were also depicted, in a mosaic filled with gold and gems. When Bodahn asked Sandal what he was doing there, Sandal told him that "They're coming". A few moments later, the party heard darkspawn screeching and ran to survive. Even though Sandal was not alarmed, Bodahn picked him up and brought him to Orzammar, acting as his foster father ever since.[1]

According to Carta dwarves, Sandal looks like a half-dwarf Aeducan bastard who went missing years earlier and whose mother was either an elf or a human.[2]

After a few years in Orzammar, Bodahn was accused of stealing by a noblewoman, and was jailed awaiting for his trial. To avoid execution, Bodahn bribed the guards and escaped to the surface along with his adopted son[1]; the father is working as a merchant and Sandal as a rune enchanter and crafter.

According to Bodahn, Sandal may be lyrium-addled due to his exposure to lyrium in the Deep Roads. He also claims that the Circle of Magi declared Sandal a savant and may have desired to keep Sandal for study or in order to enchant for them.[3] Sandal is unable to care for himself and has a limited mental capacity for common tasks (such as conversation, where he usually replies with one word answers), while excelling at enchanting and runecrafting.

Sandal can enchant weapons (and, in the DLC campaign Witch Hunt, armor) when provided runes.

Involvement Edit

Dragon Age: Origins Edit

Sandal (Origins)

Sandal in Dragon Age: Origins

Sandal is rescued from darkspawn along with his father as the Warden is leaving Lothering. If they are allowed to join, he'll offer his services along with his father.

Sandal is with his father at Redcliffe Castle before the The Battle of Denerim for last minute enchantments until the Warden gets to Fort Drakon.

Sandal will be met again during the climax in Denerim at Fort Drakon, surrounded by dead darkspawn and covered in blood. When asked what happened, he will just say, "Enchantment?". While his father is not with him, he does have his father's goods in stock, available for purchase.

Witch HuntEdit

The Warden-Commander encounters Sandal at the Circle Tower in Ferelden while they are searching for Morrigan. Sandal continues selling and enchanting items under the supervision of Knight-Captain Hadley and the templars. His vocabulary has increased in size very slightly since his last encounter with the Warden.

Dragon Age II Edit

Bodahn and Sandal later travel to Kirkwall working once more as vendor and enchanter. They accompany Hawke and their companions on Bartrand Tethras's Deep Roads expedition, providing supplies for the party.

Hawke first meets Sandal outside the Dwarven Merchants' Guild in Hightown. Later, during the Deep Roads expedition, Bodahn asks Hawke to find Sandal, who has wandered off. He is found unharmed, and surrounded by dead darkspawn, much like what happened at Fort Drakon. When questioned, he hands Hawke a Rune of Frost and states "Boom." Upon further inspection of the area, there is also a frozen ogre in mid-charge and when inquired about this, Sandal simply says "Not enchantment".

After the Deep Roads expedition he sets up in the Amell Estate along with Bodahn. He can craft any rune, including Sandal's Special Rune. Sandal also occasionally takes on cooking duties for the estate, his specialty being "Enchantment Soup".

Bodahn will mention that they left the mage tower where Sandal had been researching, because he didn't like their "greedy eyes". Afraid that the Circle may have wanted to keep him forever, he left beforehand.

In Act 3, Bodahn informs Hawke that his son was offered a position in Orlais by Empress Celene herself and that they will leave when proper arrangements are made.

Sandal last appears in the Gallows with Hawke's storage chest, as well as selling all of Bodahn's wares and enchantments near several slain mages, templars and demons; including a Pride demon in a similar fashion to what happened during The Battle of Denerim at Fort Drakon.

Dragon Age Inquisition Edit

He is briefly mentioned in letters sent to Varric during the latter's war table missions, commenting that a dwarf by the name of Worthy has never forgiven Varric for causing Sandal to join Hawke as the latter's runecrafter.

He is also mentioned by Dagna during a conversation regarding her title as an Arcanist in the Undercroft.
Sandal's alleged journal makes an appearance inside the Shattered Library. Though how it got there is unknown, nearby is a dead Qunari impaled with several stakes.

Dragon Age II Edit

Main article: Sandal's Store

Sandal can be encountered during The Last Straw selling provisions at The Gallows.

Quotes Edit

Dragon Age II Edit

  • "I saw something nasty in the woodshed." (Reference to "Cold Comfort Farm" novel and film.)
  • (About Orana) "She smells like cinnamon buns."

Dialogue Edit

  • Sandal: Can I have some Salamanders, please?
  • Bodahn: Don't do it, that's where the boom comes from, I think.
───────
  • Sandal: One day the magic will come back. All of it. Everyone will be just like they were. The shadows will part, and the skies will open wide.
  • Bodahn: Huh. What's this?
  • Sandal: When he rises, everyone will see.
  • Bodahn: By the ancestors, what's gotten into you, my boy?
  • Sandal: Enchantment?
  • Bodahn: Hmph. That's more like it.
Sandal is likely foretelling Solas's plan to tear down the Veil and restore the world as it was before the Veil existed.

Trivia Edit

  • During the Deep Roads expedition in Dragon Age II, Sandal will be found surrounded by darkspawn corpses. According to him, he blew them up with an enchantment, simply saying "Boom", although the frozen ogre next to him was "Not enchantment!" During the final mission of the game, he is surrounded by the corpses of abominations and demons, an homage to his appearance in Fort Drakon at the culmination of Dragon Age: Origins.
  • When talked to in Hawke's Estate, Sandal will sometimes mention a scary old lady telling him bad things in his head.
  • When examining the upstairs banister in your Hightown Mansion in Dragon Age II, Hawke notices handprints on the chandelier. Hawke suggests Sandal has been swinging from it. Alternatively, if Merrill lives in the estate, Hawke will say that she has been swinging on it. The same happens when examining the bed (Sandal or Merrill jumping on the bed).
  • When Hawke speaks with their mabari after acquiring the estate, Sandal will be in a "conversation" with it where they bark back and forth. Bodahn says they're having a good conversation. This is similar to dialogue between Sten and the Warden's dog in Dragon Age: Origins, although much less aggressive.
  • There appears to be a slight continuity error with Sandal in the timeline. Sandal is seen in Kirkwall a year after the Battle of Denerim with his father Bodahn on the Deep Roads Expedition. He stays in Kirkwall for the next three years, yet he is seen in Witch Hunt, which happens two and a half years after the Blight. However, it is possible that Bodahn and Sandal moved back and forth from Kirkwall to Ferelden over the course of three years due to the trade purposes of their traveling business.
  • When spoken to in Hawke's Estate, Sandal will sometimes say "That big tower in the lake is scary," to which Bodahn replies with "He means the Gallows and I quite agree."
  • Bodahn will mention to Hawke during The Deep Roads Expedition that Sandal has burned down their house twice by accident using enchantments.
