Maren Mac Tir (née Cousland), or more famously known as the Hero of Ferelden, is the second and youngest child of Teryn Bryce Cousland and Teryna Eleanor Cousland. Maren became a Grey Warden after her parents were murdered by Arl Rendon Howe. She along with fellow warden Elowwen Amell united the nation against the Fifth Blight. Shortly after the defeat of the Archdemon, she was wed to Queen Anora Mac Tir and was granted the title of Warden Commander of Ferelden.

Overview Edit

Physical Appearance Edit

Maren is a woman of slightly above average height and lithe build, standing at 5'6. Sharp features and high cheekbones make for a striking look, she sports the iconic Cousland traits. With stormy blue eyes and long wavey black hair, she is considered quite the beauty if not a bit cold. A long scar runs from her top lip stopping only inches from her right eye.

Personality Edit

Most would describe Maren as a withdrawn, cold, and sorrowful woman. Untrusting and at times ruthless, only the scare few that she trusts see the fragile women she so desperately pretends not to be.

History (WIP) Edit

Maren was born on the second day of Matrinalis in the year 9:8 of the dragon age, abord the Mistral as the second child of Bryce and Eleanor Cousland. When Maren made her debut at the landsmeet at age five, she made fast friends with Prince Calin Theirin and Anora Mac Tir, a friendship that lasted until the year 9:25. Seeing the growing bond between Anora and Maren, Bryce and fellow Tryen Loghain  Mac Tir came to an arrangement that Maren could spend four months at Denerim under his care, also doubling as the start of her tactical and swordsmanship training.
