The mission may be acquired after completing Capturing Caer Bronach.
Operation text Edit
A letter delivered by messenger bird:
My name is Sister Paulette. My sisters and I have been accompanying a handful of injured Inquisition soldiers through the Frostbacks. As they are no longer able to fight for the Inquisition, they wished to return to their families in Ferelden. These are strange times and many seek the solace—or forgiveness—of loved ones. Unfortunately, that peace may never come.
A band of Avvar, refusing to see reason, have pinned us down. We have taken refuge in a cave and are holding them off as best we can, but I do not know how long we can last.
I understand this bird is trained to return to Skyhold; I pray it is so. We need aid.
A note in Cullen's hand follows:
Soldiers dispatched from Skyhold itself will not reach them in time. We should have men near their location—we sent a party to pursue a group of Red Templars we suspect of moving captured civilians to one of their red lyrium mines.
A swift bird might reach the party, allowing them to go to the Sister's aid. However, we would likely lose the Templars' trail.
Advisor suggestions Edit
These soldiers are still our allies. They've done their part; we cannot abandon them.
Not participating in this mission.
No one wants to make this call, but if the Red Templars escape, more people will be harmed. Our soldiers would understand.
Correspondence sent by messenger bird to Commander Cullen:
From Sister Paulette:
Your help arrived just in time. My sisters and I have seen the soldiers safely to Ferelden. I cannot express what this means to all of us. Maker's blessings upon you and our rescuers.
From Lieutenant Kestrel:
Commander, we've lost the Red Templars' trail. Awaiting further orders.
Correspondence sent to Commander Cullen:
From Lieutenant Kestral:
Commander, we were able to track down the Red Templars and put an end to their activities. We supplied their former prisoners so they might make their way home.
From Mother Giselle:
We will conduct prayers for our soldiers and the kind sisters who lost their way through the Frostbacks. May they find peace at the Maker's right hand.
