Executive producer Mark Darrah has confirmed that Dragon Age: Origin's Alistair is "not a party member" for the Inquisitor in the upcoming sequel, but that doesn't rule out a possible cameo appearance.

Dragon Age: Inquisition sees the return of multiple race selection for the player, and even Dragon Age: Origin's Morrigan struts back into camp. However the 'Witch of the Wilds' won't be sitting by our camp fire.

BioWare writer David Gaider confirmed she'll "not be a party member" but added her role is "not a cameo," which would be a great disservice indeed. She has her own 'big plot' going on.
