Siali Arnith was born in the Highever alienage, daughter to two members of a local, largely-elvish mercenary group called the Adders. She spent most of her childhood being secretly trained in the use of blades and running small errands for the group, and was a generally cheerful person (disregarding an accidental stabbing and poisoning at the age of fifteen, which left her temporarily agoraphobic) until she was married off at eighteen.

In the seven years between her marriage and the current day, Siali has suffered stroke after stroke of bad luck, and consequently became aggressive and self-destructive. Over the last few months, this has become less in evidence as Siali started rebuilding her life in Denerim, sharing a room with Erna, befriending a few other elves and entering a relationship with Sa'Vael Elen.

Finally caring enough to want to improve her lot in life, Siali volunteered to join the Wardens, seeing it as a way to gain a little respect and keep trouble from her friends. She Joined on the 12th Drakonis and despite being horrified at learning the less savoury aspects of what being a Warden entails, she has dedicated her time to training and learning more about the history of the Order.

Changes Since ConceptionEdit

Siali now has a tattoo of a feather lining her left hip, impossible to see when she is clothed. She has gained enough weight to not be quite so gaunt as she was, although is still best described as 'skinny'. There are three deep dents on either side of her calf on her left leg, the remnants of an injury caused by stepping on a spring trap in the middle of battle. She has three claw marks raked across her right thigh from her first battle against darkspawn as a Warden.

Since joining the Wardens, Siali has dispensed with her old leather armour and now usually wears reinforced leathers in grey, etched with the Warden emblem.

Significant EventsEdit

Siali was initially contracted in Rainesfere to help Bann Teagan sort out his problems with some local mercenaries, but abandoned the job when she received a letter from her cousin summoning her to Denerim. Her current aim is to help Taolen find what happened to his clanmate/lover Riomen. On the way there, she passed through Lothering, arriving at night and therefore completely missing the hanging werewolves outside the town. Challenged by drunks in the local tavern, she met and was assisted by Aldyn Pyke, who waited for her on the road the next day and enlisted her help against bandits. On their way there, the two encountered Flinn De'Lora, who had attempted an attack on the same group of bandits Pyke and Siali were now targeting; the three formed a group and attacked the bandit camp largely successfully, despite Siali ending up in a trap that later turned out to have been laid down by Flinn. After scavenging everything they could carry, the three returned to the road and bumped into a merchant caravan, where to Siali's surprise she was reunited with Erna, a dwarf she met in Rainesfere. Erna and her dog attached themselves to the other three and the group have been making their way steadily to Denerim, held back a bit by Siali's leg injury.

Siali was temporarily adopted by a squirrel she named Monster (after it startled Flinn), although she maintains it was only after her food.

Over the course of her journey, her somewhat agressive nature has eased a little. In particular, she has a great deal of time for Erna, and secretly doesn't mind it when the dwarf rambles (not that she'll ever admit this.) The two shared a hovel in Denerim's backstreets, and Siali was content with this arrangment for a while; however, part of her motivation for joining the Wardens was the intention of getting herself stationed in Denerim and procuring better lodgings for Erna. She is still settling into the regime of the Keep.


{C Erna Kis - Siali met Erna by nearly tripping over her in the street. Caught off-guard by Erna's bubbly nature, Siali was more gregarious than usual, going so far as to offer the dwarf a free vial of Milk of Magnesia and giving her a humourous warning about avoiding indigestion at the upcoming Cladan festival. The two have met again on the road to Denerim and shared some stories about their pasts, although Siali has kept her assassin training to herself. Siali quietly respects the dwarf for what she's heard about Erna's past, and considers the dwarf a friend; despite being aware that Erna is capable of handling herself, Siali is very protective of her.

Sulevin - The two met on the trade route between Gherlen's Pass and Rainesfere, and a conversation between the two led to Siali having a nervous breakdown. Sulevin comforted her and offered her a sleeping space in her tent. Siali impulsively kissed Sulevin in an effort to remove traces of Meryon's touch from herself, and the other elf reciprocated. The two spent the night together and parted ways in the morning.

Aldyn Pyke - After helping her out in a bar brawl in Lothering, Pyke got off on the right foot with Siali. She thinks he isn't bad, for a shem, and likes his fighting skills, although was not impressed by his method of distraction when she was a temporary hostage for a bandit they were fighting. She finds him amusing, for the most part.

Raiziv Carvi - Siali is in the initial stages of friendship with Raiziv; after he helped her track down the supplier responsible for selling the poisons used by a serial murderer, she trusts him to watch her back, and will return the favour, as demonstrated when the pair were defending Sa'Vael from mercenaries. They fell out after Siali broke Raiziv's nose - for breaking Savvy's nose - and things are still shaky between them.

Sa'Vael Elen - The pair met when Siali and Raiziv were (in Siali's case, unknowingly) defending him from mercenaries. Siali liked his reasonably jokey attitude and was surprised when she realised she liked him personally, not something normally easy to achieve. The two are now 'together', and the ex-Dalish has helped Siali discover a more playful aspect to her personality. However, he vanished on the way back to Denerim after escorting her to Vigil's Keep, and she has since given him up for dead.

Aerion the Hunter - Siali and Aerion have a highly antagonisitic approach to each other. While a truce has been declared now they are both Wardens, it is a tentative one at best and the pair avoid each other as much as they can in day-to-day life.

Auriana Clements - Siali likes her; she's a human who's nice to elves and is as awkward as Siali would likely be if she was more talkative.

Nathaniel Howe - Given the havoc Rendon Howe had wrecked on Highever, Siali was initially a little wary of Nathaniel. However, this did not last long; trusting that Aedan had made the right decision, and respecting Nathaniel for keeping no aspect of their duty or the consequences of their joining in the dark, she is willing to accept his orders. A shared interest in poisons, ironically, makes Siali feel more at ease about answering to a human.

Philippe - Siali is respectful of Philippe. She recognises his experience and that he can make hard decisions. She aims to prove to him, above anybody else, that she is worthy of the title of Warden.
