According to Tallis, Prosper holds the "Heart of the Many," a gem which he supposedly has no right to possess. Tallis enlists Hawke's aid to infiltrate Prosper's home, the Château Haine, and steal the Heart of the Many.

Hawke and company arrive at the Château, having apparently accepted Prosper's previous invitation to the Champion of Kirkwall. After slaying a wyvern during a hunt, Prosper welcomes the Champion into his home. But as Hawke and Tallis infiltrate his vault, it is revealed that Prosper knew who the latter was the whole time and has the two imprisoned. As Tallis explains to Hawke, there never was a jewel. She was in fact pursuing a Tal-Vashoth named Salit, who was going to sell confidential information about the Qunari to Prosper.

After the two break out of their cell and if Hawke and company attempt to escape right through the Chateau, Prosper will bar their escape as he summons a brigade of chevaliers and harlequins to fight them and seals the Chateau. He then leaves the Chateau, ordering his Chasind bodyguard, Cahir, to deal with the interlopers.

Prosper then meets with Salit, expressing his regret for agreeing to spare Tallis and Hawke, and insists they conclude their exchange. Instead of the blackpowder formula, dreadnought plans, or a map of Qunanadar Prosper was expecting however, Salit gives Prosper a list of names, detailing the various Qunari agents in Thedas.

He promises that Empress Celene will burn Kirkwall to the ground in revenge for his death. Regardless of Hawke's response, Prosper is sent falling to his death. However, his threats are futile, as it would become scandalous if it became public knowledge that he was dealing with Tal-Vashoth, possibly on the Empress' orders.
