Bard

[edit] Background Information

In Orlais, Bards are not to be mistaken for Minstrels. The latter are innocent traveling musical performers, while the former are specialized spies and assassins for hire. The Bards of Orlais often perform services for the aristocracy. If Leliana has a high affection rating for you, she will explain her past as a bard. She describes different bards as using different methods of getting what they want or need. Some use seduction and persuasion, whereas others will often use extortion and violence.
