A surface dwarf descended from the exiled noble house of Kresken from Kal-Sharok. Riegger spent his whole life scratching out a living from the dregs of humanity as his family crossed Thedas in an attempt to find a new life. He picked his first pocket in Nessum when he was four. He conned his first mark in Nevarra when he was eight. And he killed his first victim in Kirkwall when he was eleven. He came to the attention of The Carta very early on and he quickly became one of their top enforcers and assassins in the Free Marches. Through the Carta he was educated in the art of poisoning and swiftly mastered the techniques.

Riegger came to blows with the Carta over a disagreement which he will not speak of. The only thing he will say on the subject is that the disagreement ended with the death of several high ranked Carta representatives in the Free Marches cities of Wycome, Kirkwall, and Ostwick.

Shortly thereafter Riegger showed up on the steps of the Grey Warden keep in Val Royeaux and volunteered to join, becoming the Grey warden’s Poison Master in Orlais.
