for Dragon Age: Inquisition.
In the wake of the Breach and the death of Divine Justinia V, Sister Leliana began investigating all of the late Divine's known enemies. She was scrutinizing Lady Cybile Maronn of Baisne, a minor but exceedingly wealthy noble. Evidence of plots against the Divine led her to socially and politically destroy Lady Cybile despite not being involved with events at the Temple of Sacred Ashes. Lady Cybile's only son, seeking to appease the Inquisition, handed over a significant portion of his mother's assets including Argent's contract in order to avoid following his mother's fate.

Involvement Edit

Argent is involved in various war table operations. She can also be seen in the Rookery at Skyhold. She can't be spoken to however.
