If Hawke chooses to go up the stairs into the Vaults, Duke Prosper will ambush the Champion and leave Cahir to eliminate him/her. Cahir, irritated at being abandoned, will then leave the fight to Prosper's soldiers to unleash the "pets." After this, Hawke will be forced to continue on through the tunnels.
In the caves, Cahir will trap Hawke and his companions while separating Tallis from the group, challenging Hawke for his own interests. He is accompanied by his "pets," a group of crazed mages he claims responsibility in having broken. The Chasind will then attack.
At the end of the fight, Hawke and the others kill Cahir and can escape the caves.
