Kirkwall. City of Chains. And the Gallows - stronghold of Templar might in the Free Marches - welcomes every new arrival from the Waking Sea. It is 9:30 Dragon. Seven years before tragedy strikes first Kirkwall, and then Thedas. Cullen Rutherford of the Templar Order arrives at the forbidding stronghold a changed man. The horrors he suffered in Kinloch Hold have reformed him into a man utterly convinced of the dangers of magic and wholly committed to protecting people from it, whatever the sacrifice. Knight-Commander Meredith sees a kindred soul, and the broken templar becomes Knight-Captain, second-in-command of one of the strictest Circles in Thedas.
The Templar Order is as secretive as it is proud. Behind the Champion's tale, the Templar Order had its own part to play out. How do events in Kirkwall lead to the fall of the Templar Order?
--A behind-the-scenes fiction of DAII featuring the Templar Order from the perspective of Knight-Captain Cullen--
