Rob the maid in the market is a side quest in Dragon Age: Origins. It is the first mark of the Crime Wave quest line.
A Lady's Maid is in the central bazaar and she's carrying a purse with gems which the Warden is tasked to steal. She appears only if the Warden pays 50 to Slim Couldry.
The Warden needs to find the maid and with a stealing action to relieve her of her valuable possession.
A successful stealing action requires the Master Stealing skill or the equivalent in cunning and/or Stealth.
- She is standing next to Cesar and the Warden cannot initiate a conversation with her, thus making the steal action the only available option.
- Failing to steal her purse will generate a comment from her, however this won't fail the quest.
