Personal history

Gamlen was the second child of Lord Aristide and Lady Bethann of House Amell, born a year after his sister Leandra. Like his sister, he was afforded the best tutoring and upbringing the Amells could buy. And though he seemed overshadowed by his beautiful and talented sister, the two remained close throughout childhood onto maturity.   Gamlen acquired a taste for gambling as a young man, and what began as an innocent nobleman's pastime progressed to having to pawn off family heirlooms to pay off his debts. Lord Aristide cut Gamlen's allowance when he found out, and put Gamlen under house guard to prevent him from sneaking out at night. Gamlen tried to curb his gambling addiction, but sneaked out nonetheless whenever his pockets grew too heavy.   After Leandra eloped to Ferelden with Malcolm Hawke, Gamlen was left to take care for their grief-stricken parents. Lady Bethann grew pale and thin, barely spoke to anyone or ate anything. She refused all invitations to soirees and balls. Lord Aristide began taking his meals in his office. The servants started going to Gamlen for instructions, who left the responsibilities of running the house to the steward. The oppressive atmosphere became too much for him, and he spent more time away from home, losing himself in drink, cards and the ladies of The Blooming Rose. Leandra sent him a letter when Hawke was born, but Gamlen was unable to write a reply that didn't sound accusatory and the letter went unanswered.   During this time, Gamlen befriended and eventually fell in love with Mara Hartling, one of the estate's chambermaids and daughter of the old head cook. When Lord Aristide and Lady Bethann were stricken with cholera, it was Gamlen and Mara who nursed them. They got better, though they never regained their full strength. Bethann died after a second bout in 9:10, while Lord Aristide clung to life until 9:11.   Mara stayed with Gamlen despite the numerous scandals the Amells were faced with. She found employment with the Reinhardts, a noble family once close to the Amells. When Gamlen kept gambling the nights away, Mara eventually left him, saying that she wouldn't let him waste another life like he'd wasted his.
