Anders is a wise-cracking laid back kind of soul.

Class : Mage

Specialization: Spirit Healer

As an adolescent he was taken to the Circle Tower by the templars, which he despised as he compared it to a prison. He’s a very talented mage and has escaped from the tower seven times, only to be captured and brought back by the templars. Despite accusations that he is a Maleficar, he is only an apostate and wants nothing more than to be free. He is seen fighting darkspawn, surrounded by dead templars. He greets the Warden with “I didn’t do it”, which is in reference to the dead templars. His style and manner bears much resemblance to that of Alistair, showing a rather laid-back and care-free attitude. Anders not only joins your party, but you can invoke the Right of Conscription and put him through the Joining to become a Grey Warden.

Personal Quest

Speak with Namaya in Amaranthine (she’s at the northeast) and agree to aid Anders; you will gain the quest “ Freedom for Anders “. Enter the Abandoned Warehouse located near the merchants.

Check the chest ahead then the wooden crate, armoire and crate on the other side for Lorekeeper’s Mitten, Lorekeeper’s Boots, Blood Promise, Lorekeeper’s Cowl, Lightning Rod, and Aqua Magus . Go north and run into Rylock, who forces you to fight or give up Anders. Enter the northern room and check the bookshelf for a Potent Health Poultice Recipe and Lyrium: The Voice of the Maker . One chest holds an Enchanter Cowl and Charm of Flame , the other simply money. There is a shelf in the back corner to be looted, do so and leave to complete the quest.
