Investigate Duke Antoine of Wycome is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

This operation will only be available if the Inquisitor is of elven origin and has completed the operation after completing the operation Protect Clan Lavellan with Leliana and the main quest Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts or Here Lies the Abyss.

Operation text[edit | edit source]


I have new information regarding Duke Antoine of Wycome's move against the Inquisitor's Dalish clan. It appears that Wycome has been experiencing some sort of plague that affects only humans. The duke has kept news of the disease quiet; as his fellow nobles grow louder in their anger, blaming the elves in the alienage for what has been called the "Knife-Eared Plague," Antoine evidently chose to use Clan Lavellan as a scapegoat. His surreptitious move against the Dalish was an attempt to convince his nobles that he was taking action.

Suspicions in the city remain high. I can gather information, but any action on my part will be high risk.

Wycome believes himself an ally of the Inquisition. My ambassadors can go where Leliana's agents cannot.

Leliana - 1:00:00[edit | edit source]

It is risky, but I could attempt to send assassins to end Wycome and his threats to the Dalish.

Results[edit | edit source]

Josephine[edit | edit source]

Ambassador Montilyet,

Duke Antoine has been a most charming and gracious host, and has made himself a friend, indeed, to the Inquisition. His city is a wonder, and he was quite keen to display some of the improvements he has made recently. Of particular note are the wells, which use a red crystal to purify the water from which all humans in the city drink. Duke Antoine has not yet made these improvements to the wells from which the elves in the alienage drink.

The duke assures me that concerns about some sort of disease affecting his city are wholly overblown, and has quite convinced me that his plans to rid the city of "the rats causing the problem" should be underway quite soon.

I continue to enjoy my visit to Wycome, and I confess that I hope I do not hear the noisy clatter of the Inquisition's armored troops ruining my quiet afternoons. The elves of Clan Lavellan, by contrast, are quiet, like their poor cousins here in Wycome's alienage, and it might be a welcome change to my daily regime to see them in the future.

Yours in haste,

Lady Guinevere Volant

Leliana[edit | edit source]


I know not whether this will reach you. The Duke of Wycome is dead, and the soldiers of Wycome blame us. All the elves in the city have been killed, blamed for some plague that only strikes down humans. Now they hunt us as well.

Most of the clan is already dead.

Live well, da'len. You carry Clan Lavellan with you. They are coming for us.

The message ends abruptly, but is written in the hand of Keeper Istimaethoriel.
