Warden Commander Genevieve


Genevieve, Commander of the Grey, is one of the main characters in the Dragon Age prequel novel The Calling, by David Gaider. Formidable but harrowed fighter with a big-arse sword, nerves of steel and a unhealthy intensity. As of April of 2021, added photorealistic portraits.
