Hawke is the main protagonist in the game Dragon Age 2.


Hawke and his family lived in the small village of Lothering until it was attacked by Darkspawn. Fleeing the village Hawke and his family make their way towards Kirkwall which is the main location in Dragon Age 2. Having became known as the Champion of Kirkwall after defeating the Arishok in battle and saving Kirkwall. Later tensions between the Chantry and the Circle of Magi have reached a boiling point and Hawke must choose a side and solve the issue. After doing so Hawke simply vanishes and his where abouts are unknown though there are rumors and the only thing known left about him is his legend.



Varrick starts to tell the tale of Hawke who ventured to a distance land for reasons unknown though some say it is in search of a power that would allow Hawke to end the conflict between the Chantry and the Circle of Magi. Varrick continues his tale stating that Hawke went alone leaving even those Hawke loved and fought beside behind. This was a journey that he had to, that he only could do so alone. This is the story of the Champion of Kirkwall....

Rival - Commander Shepard
Commander Shepard

Commander Shepard

Reason - Hawke is walking along when he notices Commander Shepard walking around. Approaching Shepard Hawke asks if he is alright seeing his eyes glowing blue and his skin blue. Having become indoctrinated Commander Shepard attacks Hawke.

Connection - Both Mass Effect and Dragon Age are created by Bioware. While Mass Effect takes place in the future and focuses around technology Dragon Age focuses around steel and magic. Both Protagonists are able to be created in any way that the player wishes, and both can be either male or female. In both series the protagonist work alongside different species in order to destroy a great threat (In DAO its the Archdemon and Mass Effect the Reapers). Both series involve an evil that turns the other races into their minions (In Dragon Age they are turned into Darkspawn, while in Mass Effect they are indoctrinated). Both games revolve around a system of morals and allows the player to choose what those morales are. Both are squad based games where as DA has a 4 member squad ME has a 3 member squad. Lastly, both protagonists can either die or survive at the end of their story depending on the choices the player has made.


Varrick: It was never known what became of Hawke. Many say that Hawke just simply vanished. The deeds and triumphs Hawke left behind but nobody knows where the Champion went or even what Hawke had found. Was it treasure? Power? The key to ending the ongoing war between the Chantry and the Circle of Magi? There is only one person who knows....


Hawke is a swift fighter who focuses on the three different classes found in Dragon Age 2 being the Warrior, Mage, and Thief. Since there are now only stories of Hawke nobody even knows who Hawke was which is why Hawke is always referenced in the third person and is able to use all three classes.
