for Dragon Age II.
Kelder Vanard is the son of Magistrate Vanard, and a killer who targets elves, particularly children. He claims to do so because demons in his head tell him to (though the Circle of Magi dispute this, and believe he is simply mad), and because the young elves have "no right to be so beautiful." He is sick of his own life and wants to die.

Kelder is involved in the quest, Magistrate's Orders.

Magistrate Vanard asks Hawke to look for a dangerous criminal who escaped and now is hiding in a Ruined Passage beneath some Abandoned Ruins on the Wounded Coast. Vanard already sent some members of the Kirkwall City Guard there, but they were slaughtered by unspecified "creatures". Vanard offers Hawke a promise of future support for the return of the criminal, as long as he is brought back alive and unharmed.

The criminal turns out to be Kelder, Magistrate Vanard's son. You can choose to return him to Vanard, which will result in a 1DAO goldpiece transreward (2DAO goldpiece trans if you choose to blackmail Vanard), and rivalry from your companions, or kill him. Killing him will result in a reward of 1DAO goldpiece trans from Elren at the entrance, approval from some companions, and a promise of revenge from the magistrate.
