Cassandra Pentaghast severs as a part of the “Seekers of Truth,” a group that “protects and polices” the mages. Despite being born into a noble family, she joined the order when her brother died. The female human character is described as someone who is “outwardly rigid.” You can check out some images of her, as well as Varric Tethras, in “Dragon Age Inquisition” with the slideshow to the left of this article and the details from Bioware below:

Cassandra is a long-serving member of the Seekers of Truth. The quiet order both protects and polices the Chantry, and is granted ultimate authority in its investigations. Feared by everyone from the lowliest mage apprentice to the Templar leadership, all are subject to the righteous wrath of the Seekers. Their judgment is final.

Cassandra joined the order shortly after the death of her brother and quickly rose through their ranks. She is outwardly rigid and rarely shows any emotion, save anger and aggression. Sharp, pious, and driven, she is the sword in the right hand of the Divine, seeking justice above all else.

Similar to Cassandra Pentaghast, Varric Tethras was also described as a bit of an outcast as he was shun by his own people. Despite his willingness to help others, the male dwarf also has some deep personal issues. You can find his description below:

Born among the surface dwarves of the Merchants Guild, Varric is a man apart from his people. He has no love or longing for the homeland underfoot that shuns him, and has little taste for the flamboyant displays of wealth and privilege displayed by so many surface nobles. Instead, find this clean-shaven and well-tailored dwarf at the side of an unlikely hero or rubbing shoulders with your local tavern’s finest knaves. He’s at his best with cup in hand and tale to tell, rewriting the truth as he sees fit.

Along with Cassandra Pentaghast and Varric Tethras, Bioware previously confirmed that Morrigan from “Dragon Age Origins” will also return in the third main entry into the role-playing series. The studio is planning to introduce new characters to the story as well even with the connections to previous titles.

“Dragon Age Inquisition” on the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One is scheduled to launch in the fall on this year.
