Hedge mage Eddrick hails from the island town of Alamar, and is the descendant of Nevarran mages.
Eddrick was born in Alamar, an island town located at the mouth of the Waking Sea, north of Amaranthine. The relative poverty and inhospitable climate of Alamar meant that Eddrick’s powers as a child went unnoticed far longer than usual, which helped him escape the notice of the Circle. Tall from a young age, and always sensitive and quiet, Eddrick loved to craft with his father’s spare boat-building materials and was also known to harbor and care for the stray cats and dogs roaming the dirty streets of Alamar.
After leaving home at seventeen, Eddrick traveled to main land Ferelden , never staying in one place too long. He received training in the magic arts from a fellow apostate and had been living just outside of Vintiver before meeting his fellow adventurers.
