Dragon Age players, meet Anders, the freedom-craving, magic-using, troublemaking new companion who'll be joining your party in the Dragon Age: Origins – Awakenings expansion pack.

Most mages get sent to the Circle Tower at a young age, never really knowing much about the outside world before being confined under the watchful eye of the Chantry. Anders didn't make it to the tower until adolescence, so he knows what he's missing, trapped with all of the other "dangerous" magic-users, and he wants out. And a good meal. And perhaps a lady or two.

You'll likely be instrumental in making Anders' dreams come true when Dragon Age: Origins – Awakenings hits stores next month.
