DA Relationship Chart (Revised) by Mimi-Sardinia
DA Relationship Chart (Revised)
This is the very large, complex attempt to map out the relationships of Elenaria Surana, Warden-Commander of Ferelden.

First off? The headcanon for Elenaria is a crossover with LotR/The Silmarillion. Elenaria is one of the Silmarils - shiny jewels that lots of war was fought over. The basic idea is she and her sisters tried to escape Angband (fortress of Morgoth, the Big Bad) by jumping into another time-line where they were free. They couldn't find one where they were free, so they tumbled right out of Arda and into Thedas.

Lossanárë became Andraste, Elennárë spent several hundred years living with the descendants of Neria Surana (why yes I did use the Mage Origin default name there!) before she took a body as Elenaria, and Elenlossë... was found by Flemeth.

The Star of Fëanor in a circle is an idea of a symbol the Silmarils used as their personal crest. Fëanor was their adopted father, and their stoneforms are round.
Lossanárë has a reversed Sword of Mercy because she dislikes the Chantry. The Chantry took what she really said and changed it to be almost unrecognisable.
Elenlossë has a dragon because of her time with Flemeth. In fact that is Flemeth's dragon form.
Elennárë has adopted the Warden Griffon as her symbol. She might have considered the Vhenadahl tree is a symbol prior to becoming a Grey Warden, but the idea of personal symbols didn't come up until after the births of the Twin Princesses.

The second big detail is that two people from Arda followed the Silmarils to Thedas.
The first one was Askíl aka Durin the Second, who promised he would rescue the Silmarils from Angband. That promise had the weight of an arcane oath and as a result, he was reincarnated as Kêlan Brosca, and in Dragon 9:30 joined Elenaria's team and became a Grey Warden. They remained best friends for the rest of Kêlan's life. Kêlan eventually became Kíli, several lives later.
The second is Shangraile, an Easterling soldier assigned to serve in Angband in the latter part of the First Age. Elennárë and Elenlossë saved his life twice and accidentally created a life debt/bond that, after his death, transported him to the Fade, where he walked out to become the Inquisitor. As you may see, his other major link besides the Silmarils is Leliana, who helped him adjust.

After the Fifth Blight, Lossanárë and Elenlossë took new bodies as Alistair and Anora's twin daughters, so they have links going that way. Elenlossë became queen and married Aedan Coulsand, son of Fergus (named after Fergus' dead brother). It was not a soul-bonded relationship because she knew her One True Love was back in Arda.

Despite the infamous betrayal. Lossanárë loved Maferath, and when he eventually came back to her, ten years after the death of "Andraste", she accepted him back after hearing his apologies and repentance. He became her guardian and they bonded. Their bond kept him from aging or dying, so he was very much alive when Elenaria came looking for the Ashes. However he died in the explosion when the Breach opened in 9:41. His soul was pulled to Lossanárë and he remained with her after that.

Lossanárë did marry in her life as Alissa, but I still haven't decided to whom. Both she and Alana had children, part of their plan to leave a small bit of the light of teh Silmarils in Thedas when the returned to Arda. They knew it would work because the Hawkes are descendants of Andraste, through Malcom (despite legend of Andraste's descendants only being female).

I did decide that Elenaria is related to the Tabris family, through her father. He is a cousin of Cyrion, making Elenaria second-cousin of Kallian (whose gender was only set by the available picture).

Pictures for Shangraile, Kêlan, and Duran Aeducan come from Valandhir, as they are all her characters (even that Duran). She and I RP Kíli and Kizár/Elenaria, and Shangraile has been, up until recently, a background character from our RP. Now he's a major character as he has returned to Arda and is now traveling Middle Earth with Kizár, Kíli, Lossanárë, Maedhros, and Celebrimbor.

(Edits made: Links from Morrigan to Elenaria and Shangraile, labeling Fergus's brother as "Human Noble Origin" and putting Kieran's name on his picture.)

Revision: I wanted to add a few more of the relevant family members like King Endrin, Fergus's parents, Oriana and Oren, Malcom and Leandra, Revka Amell, Solona, and ended up including Gamlen and Charade as well. I also endeavoured to simplify to family links in both the Surana/Tabris cluster and the Hawke/Amell one. Part of that included moving Daylen over that side so there wasn't long lines running around the bottom.

I also found a nice logo on Google to put on the title.

First of, if Valandhir is reading this, I do not mind revising my headcanon to include details from yours. Quest-verse is still a progressing thing.


Anyway, Elenaria's Inquisitor is from Arda. He is a character of Valandhir's, Shangraile, an Easterling from the First Age who served in Angband. He was kind to the Silmarils and they saved his life, inadvertently creating a bond that drew his soul to Thedas, where he walked out of the Fade after the Breach opened.

Because Valandhir and I discussed a little of her ongoing Inquisition game, I already knew she likes the sounds of Cassandra as Divine better than Leliana. Cassandra is middle-of-the-road option as Divine, believing in doing a major overhaul of the Circle and the templars, while not outright attack Fiona's College of Enchanters (if the Mages were supported and made allies).

Originally I thought of Leliana as Divine, but for Firestar plotline, I imagine she would be gung-ho about releasing information about the True Word of Andraste (the Chantry changed a hell of a lot of what Lossanárë really said) and if released too fast, that would cause major schisms in the Chantry. Cassandra would be more wary about that and release it slowly. (Vivienne would probably just have it all destroyed.)

Elenaria however never meets the Inquisitor in Thedas. If she had, she would have recognised him, even if he did not recognise her straight away. He went by the name of Ciaran Trevelyan, a name Leliana found for him from logs of everyone who was at the Conclave. She may have told him that Elenaria was from Arda. He may have seen some of Leliana's letters from the Silmarils, which were written in Quenya (Lossanárë taught the language to Leliana during the Blight Year and they used it for confidential messages), and which he may not know the language, he might have known what Tengwar look like enough to recognise it as Middle Earth Elvish.

Also, Lossanárë was partly responsible for the Anchor. With Maferath being the Guardian of the Sacred Ashes, Divine Justina V invited him to the Conclave as a neutral adjudicator (his real identity was never publicized after the temple was opened to pilgrims) and he was killed in the explosion (yes, he was still very much alive - he lived for so long, un-aging, due to his bond with Lossanárë). That drew Lossanárë through the Fade and she lent Justina her power to keep the Anchor from the Elder One.

(Mother Dorothea, who later became Divine Justina V was the one who backed investigation into the temple after the Blight. She was the one who had the true writings of Andraste and her followers collected and studied, and intended on carefully releasing it. She knew about the Silmarils and one of Leliana's jobs as her Left Hand was acting as go-between with them.)

AS Quest-verse is an ongoing thing, more revisions like this will probably happen.
