OK SO. My headcannon for Dragon Age is a tad bit different as far as the origins go. I’m kinda obsessed with the relationship I created for my Warden, Hawke and Inquisitor who here’s what I got for their background stories and how they’re connect.
My Inquisitor, Marcus, is the cousin of Maeve (My Warden) and Marlone Amell (Hawke). Coming from a tight knit and wealthy family, the three were always together growing up. They did everything together from having the same sleeping pattern, to going on adventures, to even bathing together. Marcus was the oldest, Maeve was a year younger and Marlone was the younger by 2 years. In their early teens Maeve was sent to the Circle after being revealed to be an apostate, something that the family kept secret from the outside world in fear of a scandal. Marlone’s family had moved away as well in fear that Bethany would be taken as well. The threesome stayed in touch by letters. When Marlone and Marcus both had joined the army, they made it a habit to visit more and to write frequently.
Maeve became a Grey Warden, and began to assist the King of Ferelden, though would not confirm if they were or weren’t lovers. After slaying the Archedemon, she was known as the “Hero of Ferelden”. Marlone had joined an Assassin’s Guild receiving the codename “Hawk” and later becoming the “Champion of Kirkwall” Not to mention Marlone seemed to be at the heart of the destruction of the Chantry.
By this point there wasn’t much of their family left. Maeve could never have children and Marlone couldn’t be taken serious enough to even think about raising a child, not to mention he was just as promiscuous as his on/off girlfriend, so no telling what was going on with his linage.
By this point communication became scarce. Marcus went months without hearing anything from his family. He waited. He always had the stronger will and patience out of the three of them. Maeve hadn’t sent anything and of course Marlone didn’t, who had obviously gone into hiding but one day, a letter came.
It was a letter sent by a Hawk. The letter was written in ill tone, stating that his last remaining family members had went missing. He didn’t recognize the handwriting, it didn’t say who had sent it but Marcus knew what he had to do and with the Mage/Templar war going on, the sky opening up and the Fade seeping into the Real World, he was to find himself to be one of the only people to get everything back on track.
