Recently, our hearts were lifted when many survivors of the Battle of Ostagar returned to us. Maker bless these men and women, and have mercy on those who fell defending our children from the Blight. Sadly, one of these heroes has gone missing. Rexel served in Teyrn Loghain's vanguard with distinction. Upon his return, his wife said he was prone to quiet reflection and frequented the local taverns. One afternoon, he left his home and never returned.
This chanter was moved by the family's grief and is offering a pouch of coin for anyone who finds this hero. The Chant says, "In saving one man, you save us all," for if each of us lends a hand to aid his neighbor, anything is possible. Especially now.
This quest cannot be completed until you visit Arl Howe's estate to rescue Queen Anora. Once there, he is located in Arl of Denerim's Estate - Dungeon. You get the key to his cage from the Jailer. This can be done before or after facing Arl Howe.
Should you decide to put Rexel out of his misery, the quest will end there. You will not have the option of reporting back to the Chanters Board and will thus receive no reward. In this case the completed quest note will state, "You killed Rexel in Arl Howe's dungeon. His family and Chanter Rosamund are unlikely to discover his fate."
If Rexel is not killed, you may turn it in at any chanter near a Chanter's Board for a 2 reward and 175 experience.
