Born into the Sabrae clan of the Dalish, Falian knew from an early age that he wanted to be a hunter. He spent a great deal of his youth training with a longbow, and made fast friends with Tamlen, another young elf who shared his desire to be a hunter.
The two of them attained their status nearly at the same time, and were practically inseparable. For Falian, it seemed that he was lined up for a good life amongst his people, especially once he and Merrill got on “friendly” terms. However, he and Tamlen’s quest for the status of clan heroes would lead them to something neither expected.
While the two were hunting in the forest on an otherwise normal day, they cornered three shem in the woods. They claimed to not be there to disturb the Dalish, and were merely hunting for treasure. Neither being one to take a human at his promise of silence, Falian and Tamlen ensured that the shems would keep quiet, before going to investigate this supposedly elven ruin.
Inside the ruin, after clearing out an infestation of giant spiders, the two found a mirror, seemingly unmarred by the passage of time, unlike the rest of the ruin. Tamlen touched the mirror, and Falian blacked out.
When he came to two days later, Falian was informed that Tamlen was missing, and that he had been returned to camp with an atrocious fever by a Grey Warden of all people. After assuring the Keeper that he was fine, he took Merrill and another hunter, Fenarel, to go look in the ruins to find Tamlen. Inside the ruin, they met Duncan, the Warden who had already saved Falian once temporarily, and offered to make it permanent with an invitation to join the Grey Wardens. Not seeing much alternative, Falian said his goodbyes and left with Duncan to go to Ostagar.
After completing his Joining and successfully surviving the battle that wiped out the rest of the Ferelden Wardens besides his new companions and Alistair, Falian decided he ought to get the treaty with the Dalish honored, considering that he had at least met a few elves from other clans during an Arlathvenn.
During his time with this particular clan, they were willing to overlook the fact that he ruined the potential relationship between Cammen and Gheyna by seducing the latter, as he managed to find a large sample of pure ironbark during one of his ventures into the forest, calmed a halla long enough for Elora to figure out its problem, and later lifted the curse on the Dalish hunters.
Once he learned the truth about Witherfang’s origins, Falian struggled with the choice of what to do, considering that he sympathized with Zathrian’s reasoning, but didn’t want to risk werewolves trying to seek revenge again. Eventually though, his elven loyalties won out, and he brought Zathrian the heart of Witherfang.
Once back in camp, he remained in a state of funk, half-regretting his decision in the forest to not allow the werewolves their chance at freedom from the curse. This experience continued to haunt him all through preparations for the Landsmeet, especially after his run-in with the Tamlen, nearly unrecognizable from his exposure to the Taint. Come time for the final battle, Falain knew that he wouldn’t let another far-reaching curse spread. When the time came, he struck the final blow against the Archdemon, ending the Fifth Blight.
Still concerned with his decision regarding Zathrian, Falian retreated to the Warden’s Keep with the new Commander, whom he stands beside on issues regarding elven equality. After realizing that he couldn't sit around and do nothing in the Keep, he decided to check in with the Commander now and then while cleaning up the pockets of Darkspawn, and secretly, werewolves, in the Brecilian Forest.Ons:
