Once entering the estate, Hawke will be visited by Aveline, after which Hawke will walk into the library, where Leandra is conversing with Dougal. Despite Hawke repaying him in full, Dougal wishes for a larger cut of Hawke's profit, namely one hundred sovereigns. Dougal threatens to spread "evidence" regarding the disappearance of Bartrand Tethras.
Hawke can either pay him the one hundred sovereigns or refuse his extortion. If Hawke refuses, a random encounter will occur while travelling around Kirkwall in which Dougal ambushes Hawke forcing Hawke to kill him and his men (820 XP and random loot from the bodies).
