Dragon Age - The Wandering Blades
King Cailan was the ruler of Ferelden. He is the son of Maric, the hero who freed Ferelden from Olesian rule.
Son of King Maric Theirin and Queen Rowan, Cailan Theirin is the current King of Ferelden. He has been king since his father’s death five years ago, ruling alongside his wife Queen Anora, daughter of the hero Loghain Mac Tir.
Cailan’s mother had a love of books, and Cailan inherited this. He loved hearing heroic
tales as a child, particularly those describing his father’s rise to power. Cailan is generally thought to be bright and quite welcoming but is also said to be single-minded in his determination to carve out a legend of his own bright enough to stand next to his
It is this determination and his love and fascination with the legendary tales of great heroes that has led Cailan to embrace the Grey Wardens and their heroic heritage, much to the consternation of his closest advisor Teyrn Loghain.
King Cailan was killed in the battle at Ostagar, leaving the ruling of Fereleden in the hands of Teyrn Loghain.
