Dragon Age: Ascension
Brash, kindhearted young king of Ferelden.
Son of King Maric Theirin and Queen Rowan, Cailan Theirin is the King of Ferelden. He has been king for five years, since his father’s death; he’s been ruling alongside his wife Queen Anora, daughter of the hero Loghain Mac Tir.
Cailan’s mother had a love of books, and Cailan inherited this. He loved hearing heroic tales as a child, particularly those describing his father’s rise to power. His mother died when he was still young and Cailan grew up without siblings.
Cailan was not raised by his father alone. Loghain helped raise him and helped to organize his marriage to Anora, when both were still children. Although it started as a political arrangement, and Cailan wasn’t entirely faithful, it eventually grew into something more. Cailan was happy to allow Anora to deal with the administrative aspects of ruling, as to his mind, a true king unites his people against a common enemy.
