…it does give his birth year 9:10. it’s the other dates that are disturbing.It gives the year Maric let the Grey Wardens back into Ferelden: 9:10
It gives the year Maric accompanied the Grey Wardens into the Deep Roads: 9:14??
Which doesn’t align with The Calling which says the Wardens arrived eight yearsafter Maric defeated Meghren - guess Bioware/Gaider time strikes again?
All this is on the timeline at the bottom of pages 140 and 141 btw,
If Maric and Fiona did not meet until 9:14, then there must be a third Theirin child wandering around Thedas?
And we’re left to wonder if Maric - who wasn’t known to be particularly promiscuous - really did have a child by a Redcliffe serving maid and if Goldana really is Alistair’s sister - Ewww!!! Hey, maybe he was really lonely after Rowan’s death and it happened.
A real blow to my headcanon though - I always saw Alistair as Fiona and Maric’s child. And my story will now become really AU.
