Rogues unlock them. If you are not a rogue, bring a rogue party member with you :P

Also the rogues have a skill that is for unlocking chests and you need to upgrade that asap.

The skill is either called locksmithing or lock picking i cant remember. But, if you arent a rogue take either the red haired girl or the archer guy.

The skill tree in the Rogue class is called 'Deft Hands' which containts Deft Hands (Requires 10 Cunning), Improved Tools (Level 4 and 14 Cunning), Mechanical Expertise (Level 8 and 18 Cunning) and Device Mastery (Level 12 and 22 Cunning), each allowing different tiers of locks to be opened and traps to be disarmed.

The Origin quests can be rather annoying as a non-Rogue without the skill, and certain places may not be accessible later on.

Other than that, as others have said it is a good idea to take a rogue on your travels.

Well as far as I know all those locked chests in the Origins stories will never be opened unless you starts as a rogue.

Other posts have also stated that there is NEVER anything unique in ANY locked container. But that may not be the case as another posts said that a powerful item is locked behind a door (a shield i think it was).

Personally I don't really want to be a thief as the main character.
