Therin Ordon was a Human male who was a Grey Warden. He fought in the Second Blight. He married Merrian Veer and together they had a son, Kline. Therin died fighting Darkspawn in the deep roads, as tradition among the Grey Wardens.
Therin grew up in the trading hub known as Veranthine and was recruited by the Wardens five years before the Second Blight. He and two others, Don Blovac and Kerrin Crysto, survived the joining and then traveled to a nearby Warden stronghold.
