The elven woman steals saar-qamek from the Qunari, believing it to be the explosive black powder gaatlok. She intends to create accidents throughout the city to turn Kirkwall's citizenry against the Qunari. She frames Javaris Tintop for the crime, causing the Arishok to ask Hawke to pursue him. While Hawke pursues him, the elven woman uses the saar-qamek, and is horrified when the mist causes everyone in the vicinity to go mad or vomit until death. Nevertheless, when Hawke arrives at the Side Alley in Lowtown, she states that she just needs a few more bodies and attacks. She is killed in the confrontation.
