My Warden Ramay Surana from Dragon Age: Origins.
I imagine her backstory is kind of tragic. As a child she was an orphan, possibly loosing her parents early and somehow lost track of her dalish group. She would have wandered around and found some town to shelter her. Unfortunately around 7 she came into her magic and nearly burned the town down. The townsfolk would have tried to kill her, if it weren't for a kind templar whom Ramay saw as a father figure. She was very eager to go to the Circle from his tales, knowing she'd be safe from others.
When she was conscripted into the Wardens, her worries over her friend Jowan made her hesitant. The Circle was her home and sanctuary. Ramay was a model student and friend to many mages and templars. However, after events in the prologue she could no longer stay.
