BOOM widget 94743Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening, the first expansion to BioWare's epic-RPG, will be released on March 16, 2010, which leaves us plenty of time to meet new characters in trailers and screenshots. This week, we have Mhairi, a glory-seeking woman that wishes to assist the Grey Wardens as they fight to retake the land following the events of the original game.
"Mhairi is a determined and hardened veteran of the battlefield. Not satisfied with the life laid out for her, she has fought her way to this opportunity to assist the Order in their newest conquest. With pain in her heart because of the tragic death of a beloved ruler, Mhairi fights with her heart on her sleeve and will prove to be invaluable in your journey."BOOM video 4251
"When Mhairi was a child, she was enraptured by tales of kings and nobles. All she wanted was to be like them, to fight for what she believed. Betrothed to a trader when she turned 16, she saw the life that lay ahead of her and enlisted in the army instead. Her fierce loyalty and devotion to Ferelden earned her the love and respect of her commanders and brothers-in-arms. King Cailan's betrayal and death hit Mhairi hard, and when she learned of the two Grey Wardens who quelled the Blight almost single-handedly, she vowed to serve the Wardens. When the call came for volunteers to help rebuild the order at Vigil's Keep, Mhairi jumped at the chance to join."
