A Corrupt General is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition

The entrance to Villa Maurel is locked.

Documents on Duhaime's corpse detailed the whereabouts of the Freemen leader. The man, known as Maliphant, is likely somewhere inside a villa held by the Freemen in the Emerald Graves.


Obtained by interacting with the gate at the front of Villa Maurel in the Emerald Graves or by looting Villa Maurel Key from Commander Duhaime, who is found north of the Villa entrance near the Betrayer landmark, at the Fair Banks Cottage.


  • Loot the key from Commander Duhaime if you haven't already.
  • Enter Villa Maurel.
  • Find one of three key fragments to trigger the side quest, Safe Keeping
  • Defeat Maliphant in the Courtyard to complete this quest.

Entering the courtyard of the Villa immediately will alert all the Freemen inside, who will then attack en masse. Avoiding the courtyard and clearing out the west and east wings first will allow the Freemen to be dealt with in smaller groups. Once the courtyard has been taken as well, several Freemen and Red templars will rush from the lord's study to join the fray. Maliphant, a rogue boss, wielding double daggers will be leading them. Maliphant relies on stealth and can score critical hits easily, so remain on guard.
