Noble Deeds, Noble Heart is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Clara heard a rumor that Fairbanks is of noble descent. She believes it and wants proof to show the Council of Heralds. If Fairbanks gains power, she hopes he can do more for the people of the Dales.


Obtained by speaking with Clara in Watcher's Reach/Argon's Lodge after defeating Sister Costeau and freeing the people in Veridium Mine during the quest A Fallen Sister.


Find three items proving Fairbanks' nobility. They are marked clearly on the map:

  1. A book in the timber structure outside of Argon's Lodge (requires a Rogue to unlock)
  2. An old painting in the gazebo north of Villa Maurel
  3. A journal in the locked building south of Villa Maurel (codex below).

Once found you are instructed to present proof of Fairbanks' nobility to an interested party - either Fairbanks himself or Clara. Doing so will complete the quest.
