Alistair is the awkwardly witty and slightly charming man of the story.

Class : Warrior

Specialization : Templar

Unlock : N/A

Alistair is one of the first characters that you will get in your group. He makes for a great tank and starts out with some points in the Weapon and Shield category to reinforce that. He is sensitive but also humorous and loves to joke around.


Raise your approval to friendly and talk with Alistair about his background as a Templar and his family. Compliment him and make a few moves on him to win him over. He will need to be at the level of adore or higher to get him into your tent. If you are in a relationship with him you can take him to the Pearl in Denerim and have a threesome with Isabela. Female characters only.


If you choose to save Loghain at the Landsmeet then Alistair will leave in disgust.

Personal Quest

Talk to Alistair at camp and he will talk about going to Denerim soon. Probe him on who he wants to see to find out that he has a sister that lives there. Tell him you’ll help to gain the quest “ Alistair’s Family“ . Head to Denerim with Alistair in your party and go to Goldanna’s House next to Wade’s Emporium. Regardless of what you say she will resent him and the quest is complete. He will talk to you outside afterwards, you can either calm him down or choose the option “Everyone is out for themselves. You should learn that.” to harden him.


  • Alistair may teach the Templar specialization if he warms up to you
  • You can harden him by choosing the option, “Everyone is out for themselves. You should learn that.” during his personal quest.
  • Poisoning Andraste’s Ashes during the Urn of Sacred Ashes will result in a large approval decrease.
  • He is the illegitimate son of King Maric. Romancing him as a human could lead to you being queen.


Alistair’s Mother’s Amulet and Duncan’s Shield will each start a conversation with Alistair. Duncan’s Shield becomes an equipable item after you give it to him. You can’t acquire the shield until after the Landsmeet.
