DA: The Awakening - Interview @ Bioware Blog
Chris Priestly has updated the Bioware Blog. He has talked to Ferret Baudoin, the Lead Writer (and Designer) for Dragon Age: Awakening about Sigrun, the new NPC.

Why would you want her in your party?
As a legionnaire scout, Sigrun has access to abilities which make her very durable in a fight. She's a dual-wielding rogue who is adept at hiding and sneaking. With a few good runes on her weapons and some of the new epic rogue abilities, she can be a damage-dealing machine who strikes suitable terror in her foes - especially when she strikes from behind, where her quick backstabs add up to impressive numbers.
