It’s always nice to know who you may meet on any journey especially one that will place the fate of the world in your hands. Thankfully Bioware has been willing to give us this information with character reveals and have just revealed a brand new party member named Aveline Vallen.
From the looks of her character bio on Bioware’s website she will be filing the roll of soldier and taking the place of Alistair from the first game. You can read her full bio below:
Aveline Vallen is a soldier, a master of sword and shield, and a tireless guardian… to a point. The daughter of an exiled chevalier, Aveline is not the knight her father wished her to be. Although fully trained in chivalrous combat, she was raised in the shadow of a lost life and will not lose another for the sake of honor. Protecting her adopted home of Kirkwall becomes a chosen duty, not a privileged calling. The people she stands for will not be wasted on lost causes or protecting the foolish from themselves. Pride can be bandaged like any other wound—when threats are dead and everyone is safely home.
There is no news if she will be one of the characters that players will be able to pursue a romance with like in the first game, but we will see when Dragon Age II comes out on March 8th on the PC, PS3, and 360.
