When Hawke and Tallis try to enter Chateau Haine, they are looking for a key. After some research, they find out that it is in Cyril's possession. Tallis tries to seduce Cyril, as she did with the guards before him, but he shows no sign of interest. The responsibility then falls to Hawke. After Cyril shows some interest in the Champion of Kirkwall, one of three things may happen:
- Cyril asks Hawke to go and get him a glass of wine, which is the perfect opportunity for Tallis to spike it with a sedative. After Hawke gives Cyril the glass of wine, the noble drinks it and falls to the floor unconscious.
- Hawke flirts with Lord Cyril by getting in close and whispering something in his ear while inconspicuously looting the key from him.
- Hawke beats Cyril unconscious with a not so subtle punch followed by a knee to the face.
