Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Mother Giselle aids refugees of the Mage-Templar War outside of Haven. She believes the Inquisitor can help to keep the Chantry from tearing itself apart following the Breach. She also maintains that the Chantry does not teach hatred of mages, and that swords and magic are equally dangerous when one is prideful.[1]

She believes that the members of the Chantry are now free to follow their individual consciences, and hers advises her to do whatever she can to restore peace to the Chantry and to the world.[1]

After advising the Inquisitor of her thoughts on the current conflicts in Thedas, Giselle heads to Haven to aid Leliana in locating clerics willing to gather in Val Royeaux, advising the Inquisitor to address them to give them reason to doubt their condemnation of them.[1]

After the Inquisition was forced out of Haven, Giselle consoles the Inquisitor following their confrontation with Corypheus, allegedly an ancient magister who entered the Black City and came back as one of the first darkspawn. She offers her opinion on Corypheus, believing that he may convincing himself that the Maker's throne is vacant. Seeing that the Inquisition is losing hope, Giselle sings an old chantry hymn to rally the faithful. She then joins the Inquisition as the Inquisitor leads them to Skyhold.


  • "The Maker wishes His word to spread by example, not by war. We wins no converts with blood."
  • "Andraste led a rebellion against the Tevinter Imperium, whose magisters controlled most of the world at the time. Even then, she never called for all mages to be put to death. She believed in peaceful coexistence."
