The Wardens of Val ForetEdit
Information about the Order in Orlais and the Wardens of Val Foret specifically, including the whereabouts and history of their keep.
The son of a baker and his wife, Marc arrived at Warden’s Keep in Val Foret the day after his eighteenth birthday and pledged himself to Grey Wardens. After demonstrating good martial skill, he was taken on as a guard. Two years later, he joined the order officially. He has now been a Warden for eight years. It was his life’s ambition and despite having learned what it means to be a Warden, he is content with his choice.
Standing just over six feet tall with sandy blonde hair and blue eyes, Marc has a stoic disposition. He takes a while to warm to strangers, but those with the requisite patience will discover he does have a sense of humour and is generally a warm and caring individual, if perhaps a touch shy. Marc wears silverite heavy chainmail etched with Griffon emblem of the Grey Wardens and carries a sword and shield of red steel. When not armoured, he favours sensible clothing in warm, earthy colours. He drinks ale, and only ale and eats like a Warden. ;)
Twenty five years old, Jean has been a Warden for the last three. Philippe met the rogue in a tavern and recruited him to the order after seeing him fight. Jean is highly skilled with dual weapons and a short bow. Before joining the order, he dabbled in stealing, poaching, and other mercenary pursuits. In twenty two years, he had yet to kill another man, however. Beneath his sly wit and humour, Jean is actually something of a humanitarian. He plays the game to win, not draw blood.
Becoming a Warden put an end to his innocence, so to speak, but he does not regret it. He embraced his purpose with is usual enthusiasm and managed to retain his verve for life. Five foot, ten inches with brown hair and brown eyes, Jean considers himself a handsome man. His lovers would agree with him. Jean wears reinforced leather armour etched with the emblem of the Grey Wardens and carries a pair of veridium daggers. He also carries a sylvanwood short bow he calls the Vixen. He is adept at stealth and picking locks. He prefers to use his daggers in combat and tends to reserve his bow for sport. He is equally deadly with both.
