for Dragon Age II.

Anso is involved in the quest Bait and Switch.

Anso is first met in Lowtown at night when he hires Hawke to recover stolen goods that he implies to be lyrium. The goods were to be delivered by a band of local smugglers, but as pleasant as they seemed, they have decided not to deliver his property after all. The quest leads Hawke to the city's elven alienage, where Fenris is first encountered.

Fenris reveals that he had retained Anso to hire mercenaries in order to determine what was being hidden in the smuggler's hideout, which was really a trap set by agents of Magister Danarius to re-capture Fenris.
