Depending on Hawke's response, and current friendship/rivalry, there can be several different outcomes:
- If you have friendship with Fenris: He'll admit his failure and expresses concern that a demon could play so easily on his fears, vowing not to let it happen again. If you pick the aggressive option: Hawke will receive Fenris: rivalry (+5). Note: choosing the aggressive option with Fenris above 80% friendship did not result in any rivalry points. If Feynriel was saved, he states that "we shall see what he'll become... and if he'll regret the mercy you gave him."
- If you have above 80% rivalry with Fenris: He instead blames Hawke for bringing him into the Fade, and all subsequent dialogue options result in Fenris: rivalry (+5). He'll insist they should have hunted Feynriel's body down and killed him instead. If Hawke is not a mage, Fenris will state that one day they'll realize that not every mage is worth saving. If Hawke is a mage, Fenris will admit that Hawke is strong, but not every mage is like them.
- If you pick the diplomatic/humorous option: There is no change in Fenris' approval, either positive or negative.
- 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.
- If Hawke accepted Torpor's offer, the conversation that occurs during this quest makes no sense. Fenris still mentions that Hawke wasn't corrupted by the demon, and he hopes that Feynriel will be fine, when he clearly won't be.
Fenris refers to the Pride demon as a she during one conversation option, suggesting Bioware may have originally planned for him to fall prey to the desire demon instead.
- Though it is noteworthy that demons are genderless, beyond how they wish to present themselves.
