Freckles, known occasionally as Jenn Burke, explores the whole truth
about Dragon Age during her scientific research of the known Dragon Age lore.
A third, rather striking example of how perception influences the information you receive in-game is found during the DLC Return to Ostagar. When you recover the secret documents from Cailan’s chest, the reaction of your party members is markedly different, depending on who you bring. Alistair and Wynne lament that Cailan had indeed formed an alliance with the Orlesians, an alliance that could have saved the battle, if only the King had waited for reinforcements. They make no mention of the informal tone of one of the letters addressed to Cailan from Celene, the Empress of Orlais. Loghain, on the other hand, explodes at the idea that Cailan had planned to set Anora aside to marry Celene. Nothing is clearly stated in the documents that Cailan had intended to do so; it is Loghain’s perception of their content and their tone that colors his reaction. Was it simply a letter between friends, or did it mean more?
