Mistress Alban Poulin is an Orlesian noble and ruler of the town of Sahrnia in Emprise du Lion.[1] She is also the owner of the nearby quarry and the mining trade has long been a major source of income for the town.

Involvement[edit | edit source]

Dragon Age: Inquisition.


Due to the War of the Lions, the trade which sustained Sahrnia was dead and the town was collapsing under the economic strain. Eventually, the Red templars approached Poulin with an offer to buy citizens of Sahrnia from her to work the quarry and mine red lyrium. Knowing the Red templars would likely kill her and take the villagers anyway if she refused, Poulin agreed and used the profits to sustain the citizens who remained. However she does not inform any authority about what was going on in Sahrnia — including the Inquisition — when they arrive in the area to fight the templars.

Eventually her treachery may be discovered by the Inquisitor when they assault the Red templars at Suledin Keep as part of an offensive to secure Emprise du Lion. Poulin is imprisoned by the Inquisition and brought to Skyhold for judgment. The Inquisitor may:

  • Seize Poulin's financial assets for House Trevelyan (Human Inquisitor only)
  • Grant Poulin a pardon and release her
  • Sentence Poulin to hard labor
  • Execute Poulin
  • Have Poulin use her funds to rebuild Sahrnia (must have completed Quarry Quandary)
If Poulin is told to rebuild the town, she is grateful for the opportunity and later asks the Inquisition for aid in moving supplies to the Town.
