Gatsi Sturhald is a dwarven stonemason being employed by the Inquisition. He is located in Skyhold inside the castle, near the entrance.

Background[edit | edit source]

Gatsi was trained as a stonemason in Orzammar, where he carved the statue of Paragon Branka. After coming to view the Paragon as mad, he left the thaig, as he was no longer able to bear the sight of the statue.

Involvement[edit | edit source]

He will arrive in Skyhold in order to aid the Inquisition in construction matters and evaluate the structural integrity of existing buildings. Gatsi can also offer information in the mosaic tiles which can be discovered during the Inquisitor's travels. He believes the tiles to be Tevinter in origin, due to the tool markings and grain of the tiles. The material may have come from the Hundred Pillars, mysteriously engineered spires that look like stone but are actually a form of mortar.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Once all five mosaics have been interpreted Gatsi will no longer be found standing inside the castle.
  • If Orlesian Decor is selected from the customization menu in Skyhold's Undercroft the statues outside the main entrance leading into the hall can be examined to obtain a note from Gatsi; however, no codex entry is unlocked.
  • Gatsi is adorned with facial tattoos which are usually found on casteless dwarves or Legionnaires.
  • Gatsi shares the same last name with Kal-Sharok merchant Novas Sturhald which considering the House system of the dwarves it is likely that the two share the same ancestors.
