The Fantasy Art of Dragon Age: Origins and the Awakening Expansion - Creature - Werewolf

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 Werewolves: Wolves possessed and transformed by rage demons. Most of the werewolves encounter in Dragon Age: Origins, however, are a special breed that are the result of a curse revealed in the quest Nature of the Beast. The Awakening expansion adds Blighted Werewolves: Werewolves that have been tainted by the Darkspawn Blight. They are therefore both Blight-Corrupted creatures as well as Demon-possessed.

From Codex entry: Werewolf:

Fereldan lore is full of instances where these creatures have plagued the countryside: Wolves possessed by rage demons and transformed into humanoid monsters with incredible speed and strength, able to spread a curse to those they bit that would drive them mad with unthinking fury. When in this enraged state, a human host can likewise become possessed and be transformed into a feral, wolf-like beast. Tales differ on these werewolves of human origin, some claiming that their transformation into a bestial form happens uncontrollably. Some claim the transformation is irreversible. As is often the case with demonic tales, both versions were most likely true at some point.

The ability of normal dogs to detect a werewolf even when it is in a human guise is what first led Fereldans to adopt dogs as indispensable companions in every farmhold.
