The Fantasy Art of Dragon Age: Origins - Creature - Genlock

Back to the main page for The Fantasy Art of Dragon Age: Origins

Dragon Age: Origins is a beautifully rendered fantasy role-playing game with medieval European visualization for the game art direction. Combat is bloody and gruesome, filled with spraying blood and decapitation, but also stylized with special finishing blow animations. The game has various Downloadable Content adventures, items, and small expansions; and one major expansion/sequel, "Awakening".

This page of fantasy game art from Dragon Age: Origins features Genlocks. These are darkspawn born from BroodMothers that were once female dwarves. Genlock commanders (Genlock Alphas) wear a helmet with a distinctive design reminiscent of dwarven architecture patterns. Despite dwarves being unable to use magic, there are spellcasting Genlock Emissaries and Necromancers (both of which use the same model).

From Codex entry: Genlock:

These are the most common darkspawn in the underground. Stocky and tough, genlocks are notoriously difficult to kill, even by magic.

In any group of genlocks, there is usually one who is dominant. As the tallest, strongest, and smartest of their kind, [genlock alphas] serve as a sort of commander, directing or bullying the others in combat.

The most intelligent of the alphas become gifted sorcerers, with many abilities akin to blood magic. These are the emissaries and they usually only appear during a Blight.
