Meet Anders, a new Dragon Age ‘Awakening’ party member

We’re doubtful that mage and new party member, Anders, will fill that massive void in your chest that Shale leaves by not being available in Dragon Age: Origins expansion “Awakening,” but Anders might just make you laugh a time or two.

Officially introduced this afternoon, Anders is something of a reverse Alaistar in terms of role. Anders is a mage who doesn’t like the Chantry and apparently has issues with the templars from time to time because of it. But don’t think he’s sour on the inside — the trailer above seems to indicate otherwise.

Dragon Age: Origins — “Awakening” is slated to hit March 16 for the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3.
