** Also from Alistair Alistair: "Why is it always a ritual?"



** It's also heavily implied, although not outright stated, that the reason why Alistair dislikes Yavanna so much is because he [[spoiler: participated in Morrigan's ritual at the end of [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Origins]].]] The creator's notes in the library edition also states that this was the canon they were working with.



* IAmWhatIAm: Alistair finally embraces his kingship after Yavana tries to temp him with the possibility of giving it up.

The comic book is part of the so-called "Creator/BioWare canon", as it is not meant to [[CuttingOffTheBranches override the player's personal canon]] from the games (e.g. by having Alistair live, even though it is possible for him to die in ''Origins''). The story was continued in the sequel mini-series ''ComicBook/ThoseWhoSpeak'' and the upcoming ''ComicBook/UntilWeSleep''.

** Later, Varric and Isabela make one with Yavana to get emergency healing before going to free Alistair.
* TheDragonsComeBack: [[spoiler:Yavana explains that the eponymous Silent Grove was built after the fall of the (dragon-worshiping) Tevinter Imperium by people who realized that humans will hunt the dragons (whose blood is somehow "the blood of the world") to extinction unless they have a safe hiding spot. When exactly that happened, Yavana called all the remaining dragons to the Grove, where they entered hibernation in the Hall of the Sleepers. She managed to awaken a few lesser ones but the blood of King Calenhad could awaken the great ones, like the Queen of Dragons, who was awakened by King Maric (Calenhad's descendant and Alistair's father). Now Yavana wants Alistair to awaken the rest of the dragons... and he kills her. Not so much because he is against the idea, he just doesn't like how she and Flemeth manipulated him and his dad. So this trope is ultimately {{defied|Trope}}... for now.]]
