for Dragon Age: Origins.

As the battle begins, the Tower of Ishal is overrun by darkspawn coming up from the ground via tunnels underneath the Tower. If the Warden is of Magi Origin the Soldier will join the Warden's party along with the Tower Guard in order to assist them with reaching the top of the tower and lighting the beacon. If the Warden is a warrior or rogue however, the Circle Mage will join the party instead of Soldier.

Once this is done, darkspawn soon overrun their position, however Flemeth in a giant bird form saves the Warden and Alistair. Since the Soldier wasn't saved by Flemeth it can be presumed that he was overrun and killed by the darkspawn. However in the event he did not join the Warden's party, his fate remains unknown.
