Dragon Age: Inquisition Gets Another Character, Meet Cullen the Templar

By   /   Jul 5, 2014

BioWare has chosen the time around big Fourth of July to officially announce another fan favorite and returning character to Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Meet Cullen, a templar who is notorious across the continent for his disputes with mages. Cullen was a primary character in Dragon Age: Origins and briefly appeared in Dragon Age II. It makes sense that BioWare is bringing him back to the much awaited RPG.


Not only Cullen will be serving as an advisor, players will also have the option to romance him. Whether he will romance both male and female characters, remains to be seen, but given his history in previous games, he does seem like a heterosexual character.

Here’s a brief Introduction of the character found at Dragon Age: Inquisition official website:

Cullen has seen the worst that magic and corruption can do to innocent people. Trained from a young age, he has devoted more than half his life in service to the Templar Order. He saw the Ferelden Circle fall during the Blight and was witness to the mage-templar conflict that tore Kirkwall apart.

In the aftermath, it was Cullen who rallied what remained of Kirkwall’s templars to restore order to the devastated city. His leadership and integrity caught the attention of Cassandra Pentaghast, who recognized in him a vital component in forming the Inquisition. Now the world is falling into chaos. Cullen is through waiting for others to act, and he’s determined that the Inquisition will make a difference for the people of Thedas.

The reports of Cullen being in the game have been going on since a couple of months. Back in April 2014, in a series of Tweets made by actors, Greg Ellis and Steve Valentine, it was confirmed that fans will be seeing two returning characters, Alistair and Cullen, but this is the first time BioWare has officially declared Cullen.
