The Tide Hammer
The Arimathros is both the name given to the band of rebels seeking to usurp the throne of Highever, as well as the name of one of its leader, a Qunari. The other commanders include Celanawe, an exiled Circle Mage and advisor to the previous Teryn, and Avenisa – the daughter of the late ruler and sister to Stefan. The rebels are known for their driven nature and focus on empowerment of those without.
According to Lors, the name Arimathros roughly means Ambitious Guard, a rank that does not actually exist within the Qunari. In fact, Lors has described the leader as being a Saarebas, or Qunari mage – to who have changed his name and title from such a role in society indicates something truly unique and perhaps something to be wary of.
