Today, Bioware released some new information about a character that we’ll meet in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Cole “The Spirit” doesn’t get his name because he is as quiet as a ghost… his moniker is quite literal.
Here is a description of Cole from the Dragon Age: Inquisition website:
He is a ghost in the shadows, walking unnoticed through crowds. He can slit an enemy’s throat before they even realize he’s there, and slip away, never to be seen again. Those few who do notice him soon forget he ever existed… and Cole isn’t certain that he does exist. He is a spirit, impossibly caught between the immaterial realm of the Fade and the confusing realities of our physical world, but does that make him real? Does it make him human or a demonic pretender, as some believe?
All Cole knows for certain is that the world is full of pain and he must find his place within it. Those who wish to restore order and help the helpless will find him a strange but unwavering ally. Those who use their power for selfish reasons may never see Cole again—if they remember that he was there to begin with.
What we don’t know is if Cole will be a member of your party or not. The description says that he can be an ally but nothing more than that. Since he is caught between worlds, I wonder what sort of powers he has and if he can be manipulated by a powerful Mage and be used against you. I guess we’ll just have to wait for more information on Cole to find out.
Dragon Age: Inquisition will be released for the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 7.
