Dragon Age: Condemnation
Calder and Desta
“Never seen an elf and human together before?”
Calder was one of the best weapon smiths in Ferelden. He married Desta, a city elf shortly after the blight. They had fallen in love when she had started to work in his shop and he cared for her deeply, and her love for him though slower to grow was just as intense. One night walking home Desta was attacked by a city guard, breaking her arm and bruising half her face leaving her to die in the alley. Calder found her and when he discovered which guard had hurt his wife he murdered the guard.
Desta convinced Warden Sil to transcribe her husband and the two moved to Vigil’s keep to make weapons for the Grey Wardens.
