Coracavus was used to house prisoners whose crimes ranged from treason to public indecency. The prison was eventually abandoned and remained sealed until 9:41 Dragon when a Venatori expedition to the Western Approach, led by Crassius Servis, arrived and began to excavate it in search of lost Tevinter knowledge. To increase the pace of the work, the Venatori captured a Giant to perform the heavier tasks.
Unknown to the Venatori, the ancient Tevinters had unwittingly built Coracavus over an old entrance to the Deep Roads. The Venatori activity lured darkspawn, who poured into the prison after the workers breached a wall. Although the first wave was defeated and Servis ordered that work be continued, more darkspawn followed and slaughtered the remaining workers. The Venatori abandoned Coracavus and focused their efforts elsewhere.
