"ZITHER! was once a household name in Orlais, playing for packed auditoriums of nobility and commoners alike. But then the Circles rebelled, his Templar manager, Alfonse, tried to kill him, and he’s frittered away all his gold drinking in a riverside tavern in Cumberland for the past two years, unable to get a gig."
- ZITHER! performs at the Winter Palace during the Exalted Council.
- Zither cannot be romanced.
Background, Dialogue & Other Notes/Trivia
- ZITHER!, the Virtuoso, is the Inquisition’s first musically inspired multiplayer agent. Although a mage by birth, his true strength—like his heart—lies in his music. When he plays, ZITHER! infuses his lute with the elemental powers of rock and roll. These elements provide a cacophony of different effects, either aiding the party with Crowd-Pleasers or wreaking aural havoc on his enemies with Battle Hymns.
- Cole encourages Maryden Halewell, the Inquisition's minstrel, to meet with him (unless the Bull's Chargers survive the events of Iron Bull's Inner Circle quest, at which point ZITHER! is passed over for Cremisius Aclassi).
