Nathaniel is understandably annoyed by his lot in life. He is a fierce rogue and strong in his convictions.

Class : Rogue

Specialization :

The Howe name was once great, known across Ferelden as honorable stewards of their lands and protectors of their people's freedom. But then Arl Rendon Howe betrayed the teyrn of Highever, assumed a title that did not belong to him, threw his lot in with a regicide, and was slain for his deeds. And yet he was the lucky one. He did not live to see his surname dragged through the mud, his family stripped of titles and lands. It is Rendon's son Nathaniel who has suffered for the sins of his father. He has been left with nothing, a pariah forced to live by wits alone. All he knows is that the father he loved is dead by a Grey Warden's hand and that those murderers have now installed themselves in his childhood home.

Personal Quest

Speak with Groundskeeper Samuel after getting Nathaniel. He will mention that his sister is alive and has married a shopkeeper in Amaranthine. You gain the quest " The Howe Family " after the conversation. Head over to Amaranthine to find Nathaniel's sister near the merchant Henley. Your dialogue directly effects the resulting approval but regardless the quest is complete.

The Blackmarsh - The Blackmarsh

City of Amaranthine - Statue of Andraste
