Emerald Graves | Dragon Age Wiki
The Emerald Graves is a forested region of the Dales in Orlais. The area is an ancient elven burial ground but has been partly occupied by Orlesians in more recent times.
Long ago, before the fall of the Dales, a tree was planted for every warrior who pledged themselves to the guardianship of the Dales; these warriors were the Emerald Knights of Halamshiral. When humans began encroaching on our borders, the Knights banded together to protect us from their incursion. But the humans were many, and their Chantry powerful, and they eventually conquered the Dales. The trees that once represented the Emerald Knights were now living symbols of their sacrifice—the Emerald Graves.
—As told by Keeper Gisharel of the Ralaferin Clan
Orlesian nobility referred to region as the Greatwood; however, when the Dales were still an independent nation the region was commonly labeled the Emerald March. It is said that each tree found in the Graves is a reminder of a life lost during the Exalted March against the Dales.
The southern half of the region is relatively civilized, marked with road signs and Orlesian estates, though they have recently fallen into disrepair from the War of the Lions. Further into the region, the woods teem with wildlife and vast foliage. The area is home to many common beasts including wolves, brontos and nugs. In the northern-most region unique creatures such as giants and great bears roam freely, whilst the Greater Mistral reigns supreme.
Traveling through the Dales, one will see dozens of carven stone wolves. The Dalish call these the Knights’ Guardians. In the days of elven Halamshiral, wolf companions walked alongside Emerald Knights, never leaving the side of their chosen knight. Wolf and elf would fight together, eat together, and when the knights slept, wolves would guard them. The statues were erected in memory of their unbreakable bond.
This forest in the Dales, once known as the Emerald March, is now the Emerald Graves. A tree grows here for every elven knight who died in the Dales, protecting the region from the humans during their Exalted March on the Dales.
