(If you haven't already played this Origin, there are spoilers in the description)

Tamlen has always been one of my favorite parts of the Dalish Elf Origin, but I always felt his story wasn't expanded on properly.
If you play as a female elf, it's very obvious the two of you are in love (at least to me). You have grown up together, are best friends, and are likely to be married eventually.
Well, until the horribleness of that mirror...and then that scene in the party camp didn't do him any justice, in my opinion. 

So, I wanted to make a cutscene to show some of the affection and love between Tamlen and his girl. I hope you enjoy it!


This is a cutscene that takes place at the beginning of the Dalish Elf Origin in the elven ruins. It was created for a female elf that "romances" Tamlen, so it makes the most sense to trigger it after you have the conversation with him (in the ruins) where he asks why you are with him for the day.
Afterwards, you will receive a flower (with a description) in your inventory, under plot items. It appears there in the same way that Alistair's Rose does.

To trigger the scene, click on the wild flower right outside of the room where the mirror is. The flower is on the right of the statue that sits just left, around the corner from the door. I recommend doing this right before you attempt to enter that room and click on the mirror.

The elven ruins aren't the most romantic setting, but it made the most sense for it to take place there to keep with the main storyline.


Download, unzip, and install using the DAUpdater.

:: NOTES ::

For aesthetic purposes, the corpses littering the floor around that area will disappear after you click on the flower. This affects only one part of the main storyline. If the corpses haven't already attacked you, then you won't be required to fight them at all.  There is only a few of them that actually attack you, so I didn't feel the loss of this tiny fight was a big deal. You should be able to continue on through the door to the mirror as usual.

Also, you can watch the scene more than once while Tamlen is still with you, but you should only receive the flower in your inventory after the first time.


Please notify me of any issues or bugs that you have and I will try to help resolve them the best that I can. The mod has been tested, but we can never predict what may happen :)

This is my first mod ever and I'm still learning the toolset, so I ask that you please be gentle with me.


A big thank you goes to Tinimaus- she has been my mentor, teacher and cheerleader & I couldn't have done any of this without her!
