"No darkspawn thus far - let us hope it stays that way." Morrigan had her staff, wooden, the old and comfortable choice - but it was the only one that had arrived here with her, oddly enough. She wondered how that worked - if there was a library in these lands, or other magical creatures, she would be keen to talk to them to gain a better understanding of things. "As for your question, he...used to know nothing," she said. "I preferred to maintain his innocence, but then Flemeth intervened." Kieran still didn't know all the details - he just knew that after meeting Flemeth, something was missing from him; his destiny now was quite literally in her hands.
The cautious witch then returned the weapon into its holder on her back when they approached the castle gates (with Kieran chirping about how much he loved Skyhold, yes, and how much he loved Orlais in general - his mum had been an advisor to Empress Celene for awhile). Why did she return the weapon to its holder?
Because standing guard at the castle was a toad. Of all things.
She quirked an eyebrow curiously. "Alistair, it's for you." Morrigan lacked the patience for talking animals, that was just a simple fact.
