Dragon Age - The Wandering Blades
The Korcari Wilds are a cold southern expanse of forest and swamp, the extent of which is not truly known. Its native Chasind Wilders tell of a wasteland of snow and ice further to the south, filled only with desolate tundra and nomadic barbarians. Most northerners believe little of what the Chasind have to say.
Local legends state that the perpetual mist surrounding the Wilds is not natural, but rather the result of a curse. Long ago, when werewolves terrorized the country, a great arl ventured into the Wilds killing every wolf he could find, as well as any Chasind. A Chasind mother was outraged upon finding her sons dead at the soldiers’ blades – one of which she stabbed into her own heart. A great mist seeped forth from this mortal wound and spread throughout the Wilds. It was so dense that the arl and his soldiers were lost inside forever.
At -410 Ancient a group of Kossith lands in the southern Korcari Wilds, likely from The Frozen Seas on the east and establishes a colony. This group is believed to have been eliminated during the First Blight but beforehand, some of its females were turned into broodmothers by the darkspawn and gave rise to the first appearance of Ogres in Thedas.
The Wilds are also home to Flemeth, the legendary “Witch of the Wilds”, and her daughters.
