Travel to Viscount's Keep. Hawke can speak to Aveline, who is reflecting upon her betrayal in the Fade and apologizes. She explains that what happened was not about pining for Wesley, as she knows that he is gone; it was about seeking redemption for her failure to save him. Hawke can either comfort or clash with Aveline. With a mage Hawke, Aveline suggests that dealing with demons is normal for mages, which explains Hawke's insensitivity when they disagree with Aveline on whether she is at peace with Wesley's death. Alternatively, she suggests that she is less opposed to the gallows if "this is what mages contend with."
- This quest, along with all other "Night Terrors aftermath" quests, supersedes any other companion quests, aside from the initial "Visit" quests issued at the beginning of each Act. In Aveline's case, it also comes before The Captain's Condolences and puts on hold any progress in The Long Road until the matter is addressed.
