In Dragon Age: Origins — Awakening, everyone’s favorite dwarven drunkard returns. Oghren is back to fell even more Darkspawn and, even though his return may not be as extravagent as the new recruits’, the official Awakening website has this to say on his behalf:
Oghren of Orzammar is known throughout Ferelden for fighting alongside the Grey Warden who halted the fifth Blight. Some say Oghren was the hero’s constant companion; others suggest he merely rode on the Warden’s coattails. But the stories all agree on two important points: that Oghren is a beast on the battlefield, and that he can easily imbibe liquids that would fell lesser men. After the archdemon was defeated, Oghren settled down with his old flame Felsi and had a child. Those who know him say that he was truly happy, at least for a time. But Oghren is a warrior born and bred, and, as he is fond of saying, you can take a warrior out of the fight, but you can never take the fight out of the warrior.
