Born into a time when his country was under the boot of a foreign tyrant, Loghain and his close friend Prince Maric drove out the occupying forces of the Orlesian Empire. He is more a symbol than a man, representing the Fereldan ideals of hard work and independence. Now with his friend's death, he is left to defend their land with a naive and inexperienced king.

How to Recruit: If you allow Loghain to live after defeating him at the Landsmeet in Denerim, and then implore him to undertake the Joining ritual, you can add him into your party as the newest Grey Warden recruit. Doing so will cause Alistair to permanently leave your party, though.

Gifts of Special Significance: To substantially increase your approval rating with Loghain, you can present him with an Ancient Map of the Imperium, a Botanist's Map of Thedas, a Current Map of Ferelden, a Map of the Anderfels, a Map of Occupied Ferelden, or King Maric's Shield.

Equipment: Longsword, Loghain's Shield, Armor of the Silver Dane Gloves, Armor of the Silver Dane Boots, Armor of the Silver Dane, and Borders Yet to Be.
