User Summary

Wynne is a mage of the Circle of Magi in Ferelden. She has been there for most of her life and is highly respected for her strong sense of duty, often advocating and supporting what the ‘Circle’ stands for. Wynne is thought so highly of that she was asked to become the new First Enchanter of Ferelden's Tower to which she refused saying that she had no desire to work in the upper ranks of the Circle. When word reached the Tower of King Cailan's call to arms against the Blight Wynne volunteered to go to Ostagar.

Wynne seems to have been born a Spirit Healer as she can recall from her childhood entering the Fade in her dreams and sensing a spirit watching her. She speculates this is a Spirit of Faith never before encountered by any mage except herself. During the battle with the Darkspawn at the Tower of Magi Wynne almost died but was saved by the Spirit and claims to be sustained on 'borrowed time’ as she can feel the Spirit slowly starting to fade.

Wynne admits to Alistair that she had a son (named Rhys) out of wedlock but he was taken from her at birth because all children of mages are considered property of the chantry. She was too weak from the birthing process to stop them and even then there is little she could do but claims she thinks about him all the time. Wynne expresses regret over being hard on a city elf apprentice from the Alienage named Aneirin. Coming from the Alienage, Aneirin was mistrusting of humans but Wynne believed he was just being stubborn and was rough on him. This led to Aneirin fleeing the Tower in an attempt to find the Dalish elf’s but was hunted down by the Templar’s who refused to tell Wynne whether he suffered or not.

After the defeat of the Archdemon Wynne appears again outside the Chantry of Our Lady Redeemer in the City of Amaranthine. She explains that the College of Magi is convening in Cumberland, Nevarra to discuss the Libertarian's wish to break away from the Chantry completely.

Wynne dies when she transfers her spirit into Evangeline after he perishes in a duel with Lord Seeker Lambert. She is content in her belief that saving Evangeline's life was what she was meant to do and her ashes are buried under a tree near Andoral's Reach.

Character Quotes:

"I'm not the sort of person that leaves things unfinished. I'll see this through, I promise." -Wynne

"But why should you fear death if you are happy with the life you have led, if you can look back on everything and say, 'Yes, I am content. It is enough.'" -Wynne

"Now that you're in an intimate relationship I think maybe I should tell you where babies come from." -Wynne (to Alistair)

Trivia:

When asked to compare a set list of companions to food, BioWare employee Cori May said that Wynne was most comparable to "oatmeal with raisins and honey, and lots of them".

Writer Sheryl Chee who wrote Wynne, has said that when going out for a drink Wynne would "drink the beer, but only good microbrews, none of that mass-produced swill."

The name Wynne originates from the Welsh language, being the female form of the name Wyn (derived from Welsh gwyn meaning "blessed, white, fair"), or as the feminine form of the Anglo-Saxon 'wine', meaning friend, given both that Ferelden is based on Anglo-Saxon England and that Wynne is a companion of the warden.

Wynne is quite the connoisseur when it comes to fine beers and ale, which surprises Oghren.

Wynne is the only companion who doesn't teach her class specialization.
