Dragon Age: Dreadwolf Prequel Comic Brings Back Fan Favorite Character in the Quest to Find Solas
Dark Horse just launched a new comic series focusing on the Dragon Age universe and, more especially, the events leading up to Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. Dark Horse has previously published a number of Dragon Age comics, ranging from independent stories to ones with a deeper relationship to the games, and in the most of them, fans will see the return of beloved characters. Given that the comic is billed as a prologue to Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, fans will recognise familiar faces in the first issue.
The story of the Inquisitor, an ordinary person raised to high military prominence as they gained influence over The Fade rifts that threatened to split Thedas apart after a terrible explosion turned the planet upside down, was told in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Solas, a travelling apostate and Dreamer who was an expert on The Fade and had the ability to steal the heart of a female elf Inquisitor, was introduced to players in the game. Unfortunately, Solas did not turn out as intended, and fans will have to cope with the consequences of his actions in Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.
The new comic series, Dragon Age: The Missing, sees the return of two popular dwarves to search down Solas’ location. Varric Tethras and Lace Harding are sent to the Deep Roads at the behest of the Inquisitor since it is feared that Solas is hiding there. The Inquisitor sent Charter, one of Leliana’s spies, to request permission from the Viscount of Kirkwall to go on this critical and risky assignment. Other characters will be revealed during the story who may or may not appear in Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. The adventurers are led on a long journey by the threads of the adventure to the dreaded Tevinter Imperium. Issue #1 is now available, and issue #2 will be available on February 22.
Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is greatly awaited by fans since, while Dragon Age: Inquisition concluded the saga of Corypheus, it initiated an even larger struggle that threatens Thedas’ very survival. Many fans are either eager to punish Solas for his sins or are working hard to save him. A new Dragon Age game also creates a lot of excitement, with fans wondering which new character they will fall in love with and whether they will see appearances from previous Dragon Age favourites. These comics will most likely be a significant piece of material for those fans to consume.
Prior companions and side characters have been presented by BioWare in previous publications, such as Cole, who was previously one of the primary characters of Dragon Age: Asunder, a book by David Gaider that dealt with events in Orlais not long before Dragon Age: Inquisition. As a result, any character readers meet in the comic could appear again as a companion in Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.
