Dragon Age: Inquisition gains a die-hard bard with Leliana

Leliana, the Orlesian bard-turned-assassin who made her debut in Dragon Age: Origins, will return to face down the series' flying, fire-breathing reptiles in Dragon Age: Inquisition. It's not clear whether Leliana will join the player-controlled Inquisitor as a party member, but the game's profile of her seems to suggest that the cheery woman players met in 2009 has undergone a change in personality.

Along with pictures showing her clad in hooded garments and a solemn stare, the official description tells the story of a woman not to be crossed: "She has many names. Most know her as 'Sister Nightingale' or 'the Left Hand of the Divine.' To the rare friend, she is Leliana," it reads. "Those who have earned her loyalty know her as a steadfast ally. But enemies of the Divine know to fear her, for she is the shadow behind the Sunburst Throne-the one who watches and waits, who strikes when her mark is most vulnerable and least suspecting."

Well, at least you know when to expect her; Dragon Age: Inquisition arrives October 7.
