Description Edit | History

User Summary

Fenris was once a slave to the Tevinter magister Danarius who branded lyrium marking similar to those on rune stones into his skin. The lyrium markings have granted him the unnatural ability to phase through solid objects and Fenris uses this ability as a weapon, phasing through individuals and solidifying, killing them violently. Although he has no memory of it Fenris competed for the markings to free his mother and sister from slavery. His real name is Leto though he loathes to be called by it.

His amnesia was caused by the experiments performed on him by Danarius. The lyrium burned into his body causes him discomfort, making him guarded against physical contact. However, it is more of an aversion to them being touched rather than physical pain. Fenris has obtained considerable knowledge of Qunari culture and practices as result of him being left behind by his master after a battle between the Tevinter mages and the Qunari on Seheron. His injuries were treated by Fog Warriors and he spent several months living with them before Danarius returned to retrieve Fenris. The Fog Warriors refused to give him up so Danarius ordered Fenris to kill the Fog Warriors who had defended him. Used to being a slave and doing as he was told, Fenris killed them. He felt regret at having done so and it is what compelled him to flee Danarius.

Fenris fled to Kirkwall as a fugitive hunted by the soldiers of his former master. Because of his unpleasant experience with the Tevinter Magisters he is extremely distrustful of mages. He feels that they would do anything for power and inevitably succumb to the temptations that demons and blood magic have to offer. Fenris later locates and meets his sister Varania who betrays him to Danarius.

User Summary

"They know what I am. Let them come, if they find the courage." -Fenris

"What has magic touched that it doesn't spoil?" -Fenris

"Mages in glass houses shouldn't throw fireballs." -Fenris

"I do love the way the merchants glare at me, as if I'm going to steal something." -Fenris


Fenris shares his name with the wolf Fenrir of Norse mythology, which is spelled and pronounced Fenris in Scandinavian languages. Fenris is an elvish name given to him by Danarius, which means "Little Wolf."

Fenris primarily swears in Tevinter, but occasionally will break into meditation-like comments on the fight. He has one of the few soundsets that never actually yells during combat.

The name Leto may be a possible reference to Children of Dune (by Frank Herbert). "My skin will not be my own," said by Leto in reference to accepting the sandtrout to change his own skin. In both cases, the appearance of their skin changes and grants them special abilities. It means "by/with Death" in Latin.

Fenris has a particular dislike for fish and states he likes apples.

Fenris apparently plays cards with Varric, as during party banter in Act 3, he comments that Fenris owes him some gold, and claims he'll ask Hawke for the money when Fenris says he'll pay him. Alternatively, if Isabela is still in the party, Varric will express amusement that Fenris believes he can win enough coin from Isabela to repay him.

In Act 3 and Legacy, if neither Isabela nor Fenris have been romanced, then party banter between Fenris and Isabela suggests that they are in an intimate relationship, although it appears to be purely physical.

Fenris, as a former slave, never learned how to read. Dialogue with Hawke can open up the option to teach him how, which can lead to a comment by Hawke when selecting the bookcase at the Hawke estate in Hightown.
