Arl Rendon Howe
Arl of Amaranthine
During the Orlesian occupation of Ferelden, Rendon’s father, Tarleton Howe sided with the occupiers and was hanged by the Couslands after they captured Harper’s Ford. His uncle Byron became the new Arl of Amaranthine who joined the rebel cause in 8:97 Blessed. Like his uncle, Rendon Howe also joined the rebellion led by the future king, Maric Theirin, He fought alongside the young Bryce Cousland of Highever and Leonas Bryland, future arl of South Reach, at the bloody battle of White River. The battle was the most catastrophic defeat of the entire occupation, from which only 50 rebel soldiers escaped alive. Although he was decorated for valor by King Maric, Howe’s abrasive manners earned him almost universal dislike among his peers. Bryland implied that Howe’s personality altered after the battle. He has three known children: Nathaniel, Thomas, and Delilah.
