Results Edit

Leliana Edit


The knife came from a Hightown merchant. He sold it to a dwarven runecrafter. Blue eyes, extremely cheerful. Didn't have a name.


Cullen Edit


The Kirkwall guard questioned the merchants around Hightown and found the one who sold the dagger. He said he sold it to a dwarf, couldn't remember the name, but described him as "blue-eyed, beardy like all dwarves, oddly cheerful for someone in the merchants guild."
