Ser Bryant commands the Templars from Lothering's chantry. He and Elder Miriam act as Lothering's makeshift administration while the Bann and his army are at war. Bryant is very devoted to protecting the refugees and other innocents in the area, focusing on getting everyone evacuated before the darkspawn horde arrives. He expresses some exasperation at the quest Redcliffe's knights are undertaking, referring to it as "foolishness".
He has also been having problems with bandits on the road to Lothering, and offers the Warden a reward for taking care of them (20). The Warden may obtain Ancient Elven Boots from Ser Bryant by asking if there is any help he can offer them.
- "I do not care who takes the throne. Only fools fight over who owns a cottage while it burns down around them."
The quote "Only fools fight over who owns a cottage while it burns down around them." may be a nod to Kang, Klingon Commander, whose quote, "Only a fool fights in a burning house." was made in the Star Trek Original Series episode, "Day of the Dove".
