My Lover's Phylactery is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

A phylactery found on a dead templar belongs to his mage lover, Ellendra. The phylactery could point other templars to Ellendra, and she may welcome its safe return, along with news of her lover.

Acquisition Edit

Southeast of Dwarfson's Pass Camp, climb up on a hill to find a totem and the corpse of a templar. Loot the body to find A Letter Found on a Dead Templar, and a phylactery to return to Ellendra, the templar's lover.
