Pathfinder (Dragon Age Setting)
The Grey Wardens
The Grey Wardens are an ancient organization of warriors of exceptional ability dedicated to fighting darkspawn in all of Thedas. They are headquartered in the very place of their founding, the Weisshaupt Fortress in the Anderfels , but maintain a presence in most other nations as well. The Grey Wardens are known for ignoring a recruit’s racial, social, national, and even criminal background if they deem the person valuable in terms of character or ability.
Despite their small numbers, the Grey Wardens have been instrumental in defeating each Blight so far, and thus are vital to the survival of the world as a whole.
Griffons are now thought to be extinct, though they once served as mounts for the Grey Wardens , who still use a griffon as their symbol . The number of griffons slowly dwindled after the fourth Blight , before finally becoming extinct 200 years prior to the outbreak of the Fifth Blight in 9:30 Dragon.
