This fine looking man is a potential gentleman friend for the Grey Warden, Oto. His name is Edward Marlowe, but everyone calls him "Tip". He's not entirely sure why...
Born and bred in Lothering, he was forced to flee his home after the Blight hit Ferelden. He found sanctuary in Denerim and it was here he made his fortune selling "Energy Gruel". Whilst nobody would normally touch the stuff, the starving refugees that flocked to the city were just desperate enough to pay for and eat “Energy Gruel”. News of this revolting, yet filling substitute to food soon reached Teyrn Loghain Mac Tir, who decreed that “Energy Gruel” was to become the staple diet of Ferelden’s army.
After the defeat of the Darkspawn Horde, “Energy Gruel” has continued to be a rip roaring success after it was cleverly rebranded as “Victory Gruel”. In addition, his gruel empire has spread as far as the Free Marches and has a strong consumer base in the city of Kirkwall amongst the Ferelden immigrants (according to a recent customer survey, the damp, earthy smell is very evocative of that much-missed scent of home).
