Work in progress. Just wanted to get some stuff up.

Overview Edit

Physical Appearance Edit

Eyes the color of lyrium. Black hair cut short because she doesn’t have the patience to deal with long hair. Lithe build.

Personality Edit

The only other “magical” thing about her (other than those lyrium eyes) is her charming personality.

Talents and SkillsEdit

Making inappropriate jokes, but timed perfectly. Literally charming the pants off everyone (except Varric—he’s her Moby Dick).


History Edit

Probably met Maeryn and Alistair one night at Ostagar. Thought they were weird, but hot. Would have tried to do a seduce on them both if there had been time. Probably seduced at least one templar in Lothering to get him to ignore something her dad or Bethany did.

In-game Edit

Prologue Edit

Escaped the Fifth Blight. Watched another ogre rip someone she cared about in half. Met Flemeth. Sailed to Kirkwall. Became a smuggler for a year. Totally wanted to kiss Aveline.

Act I Edit

Met the dysfunctional misfits of Kirkwall. Totally fell in love with Isabela and Fenris when she first saw them. Tried to do her usual “flirt with all living humanoids” routine on Anders, but his immediate jump to 11 freaked her out a bit. Merrill became a bit like a new sister. Went to the Deep Roads with Anders, Varric, and Fenris. Found red lyrium. Bethany gets taken to the Circle.

Act II Edit

3 years pass. Becomes basilit-an to the Arishok. Sleeps with Fenris and Isabela. Almost sleeps with Anders but then he started being a dick about Fenris so he had to go. Got Aveline and Donnic together. Mother murdered -- Fenris provides comforting presence. Isabela disappeared but brings back the Tome. The whole gang fights the Arishok/Qunari (Anders, Aveline, Varric, Fenris, Isabela -- actually Fen might not have been there, I don’t remember). Declared Champion, but doesn’t like that since she had help.

Act III Edit

3 years pass. Patches things up with Fenris. Refuses to pick a side with Meredith and Orsino. Goes to the Vinmark Mountains with Bethany, Varric, and Fenris. “Kills” Coreypheus. Reunites Gamlen and Charade. Meets Zevran. Has some fun with Zevran and Isabela. Anders blows up the Chantry. Anders executed because “what the hell, man, don't be a terrorist” even though she knows it will make him a martyr -- it also seems a bit like a mercy for Anders because Justice is really taking over at this point. Sides with the Mages mostly because Bethany.

Post-game Edit

Joins up with the Inquisition. Ordered not to sacrifice herself. Left for Weisshaupt – Admiral Isabela and Fenris are en route.

Relationships Edit

  • Aveline -- strong friendship; Aveline is Sian's role model
  • Bethany -- beloved baby sister, flourishes in the Circle
  • Carver -- rivals but in a healthy/loving way, until the Ogre gets him
  • Varric -- BFF, would love to curl up in that chest hair one night
  • Anders -- gets along well with Anders, unless Justice is in control or he is being rude about Fenris
  • Justice -- does not like
  • Isabela -- started as just fun, especially after Fenris broke her heart, but grew into so much more
  • Fenris -- amatus, would die for him before letting anyone take him away from her again
  • Merrill -- loves Daisy, but always wished she had her real baby sister with her
  • Ysella Trevelyan -- initially wary, warms to her by the time they get to Adamant
  • Cullen Rutherford -- understands his issues, has forgiven him for taking Bethany away by the time they get to Adamant Fortress

Miscellaneous Edit

Origin of Name Edit

In-Game Reason Edit

No idea. Will come up with something. Maybe Sian is the name of a friend of Malcolm's or Leandra's who helped them elope and get out of Kirkwall?

Real World Reason Edit

For some reason really wanted Hawke to have a gender-neutral name and wanted to continue the naming from DAO of doing an interesting-sounding Celtic-ish name. Decided to use an Irish name generator and thought "Sian" sounded cool.
