While hunting the pair, Martel accidentally reveals that he is Frenic's co-conspirator in the Chantry ranks. Although the two of them elude Martel, he anticipated that they would attempt to alert the High Seeker and went to the Seeker stronghold and murdered Aldren before he could alert the Divine of Martel's treachery, framing Cassandra and Regalyan for the deed.It is revealed that he and Callista have been conspiring with Frenic to assassinate the Divine and other Grand Clerics at the Ten year gathering so that Callista would be the only possible replacement to become the next Divine of the Chantry. Martel presides over Cassandra's execution however before she is beheaded the Cricle Mages attack enabling Cassandra to escape. Knight-Commander Martel confronts her but Cassandra bests him and he is killed.
