Electronic Arts and developer Bioware have released a new trailer and screens to introduce the incorrigible mage Anders from 'Awakening,' the first official expansion for the Dragon Age: Origins.

Anders makes his snarky debut when 'Awakening" comes out on March 16th for all versions -- PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 -- of Dragon Age: Origins. Accompanying the new media is an official description of Anders, who seems almost guaranteed to agitate any self-righteous do-gooders he encounters.

Many mages chafe under the Chantry's control, and Anders is no exception. Although most mages are brought into the Circle at a young age, Anders was an adolescent by the time the templars found him: he had an understanding of the outside world and knew full well what he was missing. To him, the walls of the Circle Tower were nothing more than a prison. A born troublemaker, Anders repeatedly broke out of the tower, displaying great ingenuity. But for all his resourcefulness and talent, he could never quite elude the templars. It's a lucky thing that Anders despises blood mages as much as the Chantry does, else he might have been executed as a suspected maleficarum long ago. In truth, all he wants is freedom--well, freedom, a good meal, and a pretty girl on his arm. That's not too much to ask, is it?

      Tell me about it. They can't change the formula enough to get me excited for this.
