Today after, after 17 years with Bioware, David Gaider is saying goodbye. Gaider had been with BioWare since 1999, where he worked on franchises like Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Dragon Age.
Some news: I must sadly announce that, after 17 years, today is my last day at BioWare. I’ll miss my team, and wish everyone here the best.

Aside from being a writer for these games, he also wrote the characters including HK-47, Morrigan, Fenris, Cassandra Pentaghast, Carth Onasi and Alistair.
Gaider is also responsible for a number of Dragon-Age novels such as Dragon Age: The World of Thedas Volume 1, Dragon Age: Asunder and Dragon Age Volume 3: Until We Sleep.
Additionally, he was responsible for major parts on the plot and development of the Dragon Age franchise, including developing the breakout character of Inquisition, Dorian.
While we will surely miss him in these franchises and his story telling in any future Bioware titles. We can be certain that wherever he goes next or what ever his endeavors he will be greatly appreciated and wish him the best of luck!
Bioware has stated its only official statement to this departure through twitter via their General Manager, Aaryn Flynn.
An enormous thank you from all of BioWare for David’s contributions to our games. You’re always welcome here! 🙂 https://t.co/Za6DOrTYB1
