Dragon Age: Awakening is more than just a great expansion, it is practically a sequel to the smash-hit Dragon Age: Origins. If you're playing through Dragon Age: Awakening for the first time and need some help finding all of the possible party members, here is the guide for you.

Like the previous guide to party members in Dragon Age, remember that spoilers become larger as the list goes on. If you want to remain free of shocks, turn back. However, if you want to make sure that you have every possible character for Dragon Age: Awakening, read on.



Class: Warrior

Oghren requires no real effort to find. When you make your initial assault on the Dark Spawn inhabited keep, Oghren will greet you about halfway through and offer to join your party. He comes well equipped and will provide some much-needed muscle to barrel through this early portion of the game.

As a mostly agreeable character, it will be difficult to upset Oghren too badly. He has an affinity for wine and spirits.

Oghren is the only character from the original Dragon Age to appear as a party member in Dragon Age: Awakening. Although others may make cameos depending on your actions, none will join you.



Class: Mage

Another easily gathered party member, the mage Anders will join your party when you come across him being menaced by Dark Spawn during the opening sequence. A sought after apostate, he escapes The Circle by joining the Grey Wardens.

He comes equipped with powerful attack magic as well as some much-needed healing spells. One of the most versatile early characters, you'll want to take advantage of him as you start out on your quest.

Class: Rogue

This cantankerous human noble can be found locked up in the dungeons of Vigil Keep. It turns out that he bears a grudge against you and the Grey Wardens organization after you took out his father and made a home in the family estate.

You can choose to either kill him or recruit him. Naturally, killing him will ensure that he never joins the party, but it might be satisfying. Try to show him the error of his father's ways, and he will be a more receptive party member. He is worth keeping around as he provides excellent ranged cover.



Class: Rogue

Speccted for front line combat, Sigrun can be found in the caverns of Kal'Hirol. The entrance to this area is not immediately obvious, but can be accessed via a giant crevice that opens up in the ground due to Dark Spawn activity.

If you offer to help her defeat the Dark Spawn that have killed her comrades, she will join you as a permanent member. As surprisingly chipper and well-adjusted member of The Legion of the Dead, if you stay moral and positive you won't have much trouble keeping her happy.



Class: Warrior

To find this unique Dragon Age: Awakening character, you must complete a long quest in the Fade. After you have completed the quest and defeated the dragon, you will find him in the Blackmarsh. Agree to take on the upcoming boss (the Baroness) and he will join your party.

Justice, as his name implies, is a very moral character and gets along best with virtuous party members. He is the first and only party member with the spirit warrior skill set, making him a valuable and unique addition to any party.



Class: Mage

You'll find Velanna after being asked to explore the Wending Woods. Caravans are being attacked in the area and your quest is to find out who is behind them. It turns out that it is actually Velanna! She is violent and mistrustful of humans, but if you can convince her that you're after the Dark Spawn, she will join your party.

Much like Morrigan, Velanna is difficult to please. Short-tempered and often immoral, if she disapproves of an action, it probably means you did the right thing.

But Where Is the Dog?

Seriously, where's my puppy? I love my dog. I would never go adventuring without him. I certainly wouldn't abandon him! And if he were to die, well, I don't think my Grey Warden could go on.

Missing: One Giant Mabari War Hound

For those wondering which major characters can make a cameo in Dragon Age: Awakening, here you go:

  • Alistair: If you installed him as king, he will ride down and address you and the Grey Wardens.
  • Wynne: The chantry in Amaranthine.
  • Loghain: He will take Alistair's place depending on what path you took during the original game.

      I seriously agree about the mabari it was always with me in origins and got me out of many a tight spot. Also on a side note was i the only one who felt kinda weird for letting morrigan carry my archdemon-ified (sorry don't have a word for what i want to say) child? Seemed a bit weird to me.

      I agree about the dog.

      I like the game pretty much, but it is a shame that there are no romances nor "personal talks" ;(

      I've got a question. I made the final sacrifice while in a loving relationship with Alistair, and then imported my character. My alternate storyline was that Alistair took a large war party under the chantry to "recover the urn of sacred ashes". He then was permited to take a handful of the ashes and used it to resurect my character. Do I ever meet Alistair again after he builds the statue of Cailin and "dissappears?
