The Warden was recruited by Dunkin to the Grey Wardens and was the only warden besides Alistair who survived the battle at Ostagar. Using treaties signed by the various races to assist during a blight the Warden manged to raise an army. After defeating, killing, or recruiting Teyrn Loghain Mac Tir whose betrayal cost them the battle at Ostagar, the Warden managed to defeat the arch-demon and end the blight.
The Warden was promoted to Warden-Commander and put in charge of a tower. A new darkspawn threat emerged in which the Warden managed to over come talking darkspawn and brood mothers. They also went on a search for their companion Morrigan who warned them of the coming change.
