The Disciples of Andraste is a group of people which was created after the death of Andraste for the purpose of protecting and continuing her legacy.
According to the Guardian, when the Imperium killed the prophet this group carried her remnants to the other corner of the Imperium, in the Frostback Mountains and vowed to forever revere her memory and guard her. However an ancestor of Kolgrim considered himself as a prophet and said that Andraste has been reborn once again in the form of a High Dragon and all those who opposed him were silenced.
Since then, only the Guardian resides into the temple and is protecting the ashes as the rest of the disciples are unable to kill him. The other disciples reside in the Ruined Temple, Caverns and upon the mountain side in their village called Haven. The cult can be encountered during the Urn of Sacred Ashes quest line.
The cultists try to defend the temple against the Warden and their party, who are trying to reach the Urn of Andraste. They have trained Brontos to fight with them as well as Ash Wraiths. The cultists contain plain 'cultists', 'cultist mages', 'cultist archers' and 'cultist reavers', who are all led by Kolgrim who is found in the final cavern.

The Warden may choose to ally with them and follow Kolgrim's task which is to spill some blood of the High Dragon, which they think is Andraste, to the Urn of Andraste. Doing so, the Warden will be called as a champion by the cultists and considered as one of them as well as have the privilege to drink ritually prepared dragon blood in order to become a reaver.However the Warden may choose to reject Kolgrim's offer or cross the cultists afterwards, in which case even more cultists along with their leader are being killed. In either case the death toll inflicted on the group is high as depicted by the number of gravestones found afterwards in the village.

When facing a group of Cultists, it is best to send a character with a fair amount of armor (though not your parties tank) to attack the group's mage. Doing so will distract the mage from attacking the entire party with high damage area of effect spells.
