Siorus’ Character Profile.
Siorus returned to Ferelden almost on a whim. After traveling to his birthplace, the bannorn of Lostwhithiel, he learned his father had taken a second wife. As both Bann Eadwig Cadigan and his young bride, Wrenna Hammond, were missing, Siorus spent the last of his coin in an attempt to restore order to his family home and set out in search of his father.
A chance meeting in South Reach led the mercenary to believe Wrenna Hammond might be in the south, perhaps Gwaren, but he heard no word regarding his father.
Siorus returned to Denerim, and still finding no traces of Eadwig Cadigan, set his sights southward. He took a job that would take him through the Brecilian Passage and began his search anew in Gwaren. Siorus began his enquires with the bann himself, Roderick Yorath. The same night, he also met Solange, a vivacious blonde destined to become more than a casual lover.
Yorath offered him a job and clues to the whereabouts of Wrenna Hammond, and, serving both purposes, Siorus tracked her down and confronted her. The news of his father's death answered on question, but raised many more. Before he could pursue the matter further, Yorath sent him to Amaranthine. Upon his return, Siorus gave a detailed report to Yorath about the activities of Lady Constance Carringstone. The future teyrn of Gwaren then surprised Siorus by revealing he knew Siorus was more than a mercenary. Yorath encouraged Siorus to take his father’s place as bann of Lostwhithiel and promised his support in exchange for a simple favour - Siorus’ vote at the Landsmeet. Siorus accepted his proposal. Yorath then passed on some news that should have come as a surprise, but did not. Solange was not only a mage, but a maleficar. Siorus thanked Yorath for the news and assured the man he no longer kept company with the alleged blood mage. He lied.
An anonymous tip sent templars to Sol’s door and Siorus found his lover bathed in blood. Instead of adhering to his code, the mercenary picked up the half dead blood mage, escaped with her and nursed her back to health. When Sol questioned his motives, he admitted he cared for her. Their relationship changed from casual lovers to something like friendship and, together, they followed the road north in pursuit of Siorus’s obsession with over his father’s death and the involvement of Wrenna Hammond.
In South Reach, Siorus and Wrenna met in a violent confrontation. Solange intervened and used blood magic to find out the truth. Siorus was shattered by the discovery his father was the monster he had suspected and might have killed Wrenna had Solange not stopped him. Forced to leave South Reach, Siorus managed to put aside his fears and anger and return to Lostwhithiel. But, Wrenna wasn't finished with him. Tracking him to the small, lakeside bannorn, she confronted Siorus, pulling out truths he did not want to hear. Overcome with grief and remorse, Siorus laid down in the snow to die. Wrenna saved his life.
After visiting Denerim for the Landsmeet, Siorus is attempting to move forward with his life, as a bann and as a man. His relationship with Solange has deepened (as in, he now acknowledges it as a relationship) and he is has come a long way toward restoring his inheritance.
In Dragon 33, Siorus is settled as Bann of Lostwhithiel and companion to Solange. He has recently welcomed his mentor, Desiderio Spada, and his daughter, Ines, to Ferelden.
Changes to Appearance:EditIn order to evade detection on the road to South Reach, Siorus agreed to have his hair cut. In keeping with his new role as Bann of Lostwhithiel, he has elected to maintain the shorter style, though it has grown out a little. He combs it back neatly when business requires, otherwise let's it flop in a shorter approximation of his older style.
Siorus is now clean shaven more often than not, though he will let stubble creep along his jaw when he can.
They have been inseperable since.
Wrenna HammondEditThe sometime bane of his existence.
Wrenna Hammond and Siorus have reached an accord. After playing cat and mouse for several months, they have acknowledged that what is done... is done. Siorus will never forgive his father for many things, not least of which was the elder bann's treatment of Wrenna. Siorus also believes he is forever in Wrenna's debt - not only has she allowed him to live, she actively saved his life when he decided to lie down in the snow after they spoke in Lostwhithiel.
He does not expect to see the hunter anytime soon, but if she did require his aid, asked for or otherwise, he would give it without question.
