Melora is a Dalish elf of Zathrian's unnamed clan.


If the Warden was caught attempting to steal from the Dalish Camp, Melora later ambushes them in the Wooded Hills (a world map encounter that occurs when traveling to the Brecilian Outskirts on a subsequent visit).

Melora is accompanied by four hunters: three Lieutenants and one Normal. There are nine leghold traps in the field and two chests in the camp area. In total, upwards of 600 XP may be gained from this encounter.

To deliberately trigger the encounter, have a character with very low Cunning and one rank in the Stealing skill attempt to steal from one of the more powerful Dalish, such as Zathrian.

Sarel and other members of the clan will sometimes comment on Melora's rashness and absence in idle chatter, hoping she will return safely.

  • All four hunters in this area are in fact normal enemies, despite three of them having Lieutenant rank in their creature files.
  • This encounter will still occur even if you sided against the elves.
