In each legend and folktale there is a modicum of truth. How much truth varies from story to story. Varric wields words like a stone faced warrior wields steel. We as listeners and watchers are attracted by beauty, entranced by the heroism and skill. We easily forget that beneath the shining exterior lies a darker world full of pain and suffering. Festering wounds that never close and scars that never heal. Only when we look deeper do we sometimes learn how and why heroes are truly created.
