Dragon Effect: Chapter SixThe casteless dwarves of Orzammar have few prospects. Consigned to live in a crumbling ruin on the social and economic fringes of the mighty dwarven capital, most resort to begging, prostitution, or crime. Just as all rivers eventually join the sea, all casteless who turn to crime eventually become part of the Carta.

-Dust Town, Orzammar-
Hidden in the dirty and dark alleyway, Aria T'Loak flexes the fingers of the metal claws of her gauntlets experimentally, feeling the cold steel against her smooth silken fingers. She concentrates on her left hand, letting the internal rage and frustration activate her new abilities. The gauntlet begins to glow with a crystal azure light, swirling around

"Did you hear about those two strangers that the Captain put into the holding cells?"
Two members of the Kirkwall City Guard, each wearing identical suits of silver and red armor, stroll side by side through the stalls in the market, where merchants of all races hawk their wares. The one on the right nods in agreement, "Heard at least one looks like a darkspawn, the other's just a common thief."
"I don't know about that. I heard she broke into the Viscount's office in the Keep, which is a feat all in itself."
"What about the other one?"
"You mean the crazy mage? The templars carted her off in chains once the Captain knocked her out."
Unbeknownst to the pair, a raven-haired woman listens in from behind a cart, her body clad in a lightweight suit of leather armor. She stole that off a particularly grabby individual that tried to.....solicit her earlier. Watching the pair head off towards the tall building in the center of town, she does her bes

"You cannot do this Gregoir! I forbid it!"
Irving tries in vain to reason with the gruff commander of the Templars, but to no avail. At a nod from him, two templars leave the room. Irving takes his staff from his desk and moves to pursue, but Gregoir blocks his path, his sword held out, the point near Irving's throat. "This is no longer your concern Irving. Knight-Commander Meredith agrees with my decision, that thing downstairs is a creature of the Fade and will be put to the sword before she can corrupt us all....as I fear she has already corrupted you."
"Don't do this Gregoir....please."
"It is already in motion. Soon this will be behind us and life will return to normal."
"No....I'm afraid it won't."
Gregoir's eyes narrow, a growl playing about his lips, "You want to do this now Irving? After all we've been through?"
"Yes.....I'm afraid I must do the right thing here."

Earth, High Orbit:
The Destiny Ascension hung in space, closely guarding the SSV Nightingale. Her captain, Matriarch Lidanya stood by the large viewing portal and watched the other ships arrayed close by. Dreadnaughts of several different designs all sat at station keeping, creating a wall around the diminutive Alliance hospital ship.
Two dreadnaughts from the Asari, Turian, Quarian and even the Batarian fleets had taken station within an hour of hearing that Commander Shepard was aboard and barely hanging on to life. It was a time honored show of respect and support from the spacefaring races in the galaxy. The SSV Beijing arrived and the SSV Houston had towed the SSV Normandy over near their little formation, also. Now ships from
