Dragon Age: Destinies of Blood
Marshal of Vintiver
First Encountered: Episode 1, Vintiver, Day 1
Full Name: Tarl Dale
Job: Village Warden
Last Known Status: Alive in Vintiver
Tarl Dale, the village Warden of Vintiver, is the legal authority of the village as well as enforcer of the will of the Bann (the local lord).
The warden is a fairly tall man, still fit in his 50s, with longish dark brown hair going to grey, and a mixture of the same in his short beard. His pale eyes are still sharp, however, and he has laugh-lines around them from an easy smile, although he has found little reason to grin of late. He’s virtually the only man in Vintiver who regularly wears (or even owns) a sword and these days he has taken to wearing some of his old armor as well, just in case. Tarl’s primary duty is to protect Vintiver. He doesn’t know much about magic and curses and the like, but he has the air of a man whose fought things that would make your blood run cold. He knows there is evil at work in the world. He does not have anything particular against the Dalish, knowing full well they didn’t start the incident he broke up during the festival. He finds it difficult to believe in any sort of a curse, but he has seen stranger things in his time.
