Sebastian's dialogue contains a list of conversations he shares with his companions and comments made regarding events.
- May you find peace.
- Another arrow loose!
- We stand together!
- My bow will make short work of this!
- Our cause is righteous!
- Andraste forgive me!
- Maker, give me/us strength!
- I will pray for you.
- Please forgive your children, Maker.
- This is much more exciting than the Chantry!
- That really gets the blood pumping!
- This is too easy!
- I could do this all day.
- Is that the best you can do?
- Fly straight and true!
- Did you see that shot?!
- This won't last long.
- For Starkhaven! For Hawke!
- I have another in my sights.
- I am good, aren't I?
- No more? I still have arrows...
Sebastian and Anders
- Anders: Is that supposed to be Andraste's face on your crotch?
- Sebastian: What?
- Anders: That... belt buckle thing. Is that Andraste?
- Sebastian: My father had this armor commissioned when I took my vows as a brother.
- Anders: I'm just not sure I'd want the Maker seeing me shove His bride's head between my legs every morning.
- Anders: So, you were invested as a brother in the chantry, right?
- Sebastian: I had just taken my vows when I learned my family was killed.
- Anders: But you... gave sermons and took confessions and such, right?
- Sebastian: Do you have something you wish to confess?
- Anders: I just want to know, what do you say when people have questions?
- Anders: What's your answer when someone asks, "so if Andraste preached freedom and ended slavery, why do you lock up mages and keep them as slaves?"
- Sebastian: No one ever asked that.
- Sebastian: You seem very angry.
- Anders: And here I thought the Chantry was against mind-reading.
- Sebastian: Did something happen to you in the Circle? I understand there were problems in Ferelden...
- Anders: Are you saying a mage can only be unhappy in the Circle if demons were involved?
- Anders: No, it's not about Uldred. It's not about being beaten or raped by a templar— that does happen, but I've been fortunate.
- Anders: It' s a larger principle: the freedom every man, woman, and child born in Thedas have as a natural right.
- Sebastian: You were given to the Circle. I was given to the Chantry. Hawke was driven away from home by the Darkspawn.
- Sebastian: None of us are free.
If you complete Dissent
- Sebastian: So your "Tranquil Solution" was hardly the holocaust you imagined.
- Anders: You've been seeking revenge for the death of one family for as long as I've known you.
- Anders: Are you honestly judging me for trying to save the lives of every mage in Thedas?
- Sebastian: But they were never threatened. It was a single man's lunacy.
- Sebastian: The Chantry would never follow through with such a thing.
- Anders: Yet.
- Anders: How can you keep standing up for her?
- Sebastian: Who?
- Anders: That doddering old biddy of a Grand Cleric.
- Sebastian: How dare you! Elthina is everything a grand cleric should be. She's holy, wise—
- Anders: Spineless... hesitant. She's clay in Meredith's hands.
- Sebastian: In the face of danger, sometimes the bravest thing is to stand back and trust that the Maker will see justice done.
- Anders: Well if doing nothing sums up your religion, then Elthina is perfect. Personally, I'd prefer a Chantry that favors action over sloth.
- Sebastian: You've made no secret of your intent to lead the mages here in revolution.
- Anders: Well, I've tried not to shout it from the rooftops. You've just been around when I talk with my friends.
- Sebastian: Well, as we have mutual friends—who for some reason don't want you to get hurt—let me tell you this:
- Sebastian: If you go forward with this revolt, the Chantry will bring its full might to bear. They will kill you.
- Anders: Andraste was killed. That doesn't mean she failed.
- Sebastian: Do not compare yourself to Andraste.
- Anders: Go ahead. Say it.
- Sebastian: Say what?
- Anders: I saw you watching me.
- Sebastian: I was looking at the clouds.
- Anders: Don't give me that. I know you've been judging me.
- Anders: You think I'm out of control. How can I claim to speak for mages when I'm half demon myself?
- Sebastian: The one over there looks a bit like a bunny rabbit.
If Merrill is in the party:
- Merrill: I saw that too!
- Anders: How can you have so much faith? Does nothing bother you?
- Sebastian: You're bothering me.
- Anders: The Maker left us to our own devices generations ago.
- Anders: He's never going to step back in, start listening to our prayers again. He's gone.
- Anders: Doesn't that bother you?
- Sebastian: He's a merciful lord. He could have destroyed our world when we failed Him, but instead He gave us a chance at redemption.
- Sebastian: Should we not be joyful?
Sebastian and Aveline
- Sebastian: I understand you are of noble birth.
- Aveline: My father was a chevalier. He had to flee Orlais when his patron was murdered.
- Sebastian: I’m sorry.
- Aveline: I wouldn’t have been suited for the life of an Orlesian noblewoman, anyway.
- Sebastian: But surely you wish it had been different? To be a lady of Orlais and not a... city guardsman?
- Aveline: Not for one moment.
- Aveline: I’d rather kill a bandit and save a merchant’s family than know the correct dance steps and which rouge is in fashion.
- Sebastian: I hope this wasn't presumptuous, but I added your husband's name to the memorial wall in the Chantry.
- Aveline: Wesley? But... you never knew him.
- Sebastian: He was a templar. He refused to abandon the people of Ferelden to the Blight. He died too young.
- Sebastian: The grand cleric will read his name during the Chant of Remembrance.
- Aveline: Thank you. That is... very kind.
- Sebastian: He walks with the Maker. But it is no shame for those left behind to mourn.
- Aveline: So you’re a prince, are you?
- Sebastian: That is apparently true.
- Aveline: There’s doubt?
- Sebastian: I've accepted the burden. That’s all that matters. Why do you ask, Guard-Captain?
- Aveline: The entitled types are always trouble.
- Sebastian: In that case, I’m glad I don’t count myself as one.
- Aveline: They never do.
- Sebastian: You don't like me, Guard-Captain?
- Aveline: I've no issue, so long as the fight over your title remains in Starkhaven. Exactly like it hasn't.
- Sebastian: Should I apologize for trying to take back what is rightfully mine?
- Aveline: Whatever it takes? No matter the cost?
- Sebastian: It feels like your're blaming me for some personal experience of yours.
- Aveline: I was at Ostagar. Good people die when leaders "do whatever it takes."
- Sebastian: Good people know the necessity.
Once you complete Repentance:
- Sebastian: What have I done now? You look like you wish to scold me.
- Aveline: I just can't fathom why you're still in Kirkwall.
- Aveline: For six years you've been claiming you'll retake your parent's lands.
- Aveline: You're smart, you'd be a capable ruler. What are you waiting for?
- Sebastian: I don't know if it's the right thing to do.
- Aveline: Do we ever get to know that?
Once you complete Repentance:
- Aveline: Has Starkhaven called for it's lost prince, Sebastian? Would you give up if the city has moved on?
- Sebastian: Like Ferelden "moved on" after Cailan?
- Aveline: You've been reading.
If Alistair was made king:
- Sebastian: It's a good tale. King Alistair is particularly inspiring. But I doubt that's how you see me.
- Sebastian: It's a good tale. I'm inspired by the Warden Alistair. But I doubt that's how you see me.
If on rivalry path
- Sebastian: I'm no tyrant, Aveline. If people die restoring my place, they will do so with full knowing. If that doesn't satisfy, so be it.
- Aveline: After your actions here, no it doesn't.
If on friendship path
- Sebastian: I don't intend to let anyone die restoring me to my place, Aveline. The risks are mine. And that will have to satisfy.
- Aveline: It was well said, I give you that. We'll see.
- Aveline: Are you loyal, Prince?
- Sebastian: Guard-Captain?
- Aveline: To Kirkwall. Are you loyal?
- Aveline: You're set on a title in Starkhaven, but we're having a crisis here.
- Sebastian: This isn't just a Kirkwall concern. If this chaos spreads, Starkhaven will need a strong ruler to beat back the tide.
- Aveline: I've seen greater men than you use that excuse.
- Sebastian: Noted and ignored, Captain.
- Sebastian: Do you have many dealings with the knight-commander?
- Aveline: Please don't start with that. I'm not a templar. I'm the captain of the guard.
- Aveline: We arrest burglars. The knight-commander never gives us a thought.
- Sebastian: Grand Cleric Elthina is worried about her. She's stopped taking the Chantry's advice.
- Aveline: Her jobs not easy. Certain... forces in the city are allied against her.
If Anders is in the party
- Anders: Don't try to be subtle. I'm right here.
- Sebastian: Clearly, our templars need strong leaders.
- Aveline: Until something changes, that's Meredith. And we must give her any support we are able.
Sebastian and Fenris
- Sebastian: Are you an Andrastian, Fenris?
- Fenris: If I say no, will you attempt to convert me?
- Sebastian: Many elves believe in the Maker. I ask only because I wonder if your experiences... soured your faith.
- Fenris: My faith was never strong. It's difficult for a slave to have faith in someone who abandoned them.
- Sebastian: The Maker didn't enslave you, Fenris.
- Fenris: He didn't help me much, either.
- Sebastian: And yet you stand here, free. Perhaps He helped you more than you think.
- Sebastian: Were you ever dedicated in the faith of the chantry?
- Fenris: I have no memory of my childhood.
- Fenris: Danarius had no desire to teach his slaves anything that made them think they're worthy beings.
- Sebastian: I'm sorry. I can't imagine how difficult your life has been.
- Fenris: No, you can’t.
- Sebastian: Whether you were taught it or not, the Maker has room at His side for every soul. Even yours.
- Fenris: The Maker didn’t free me.
- Sebastian: I see you’ve been thinking about what I said.
- Fenris: I freed myself. If the Maker did anything, He watched. Why should I thank Him for that?
- Sebastian: Is it so hard to believe the Maker cares for you? Maybe He gave you the chance to escape.
- Fenris: It doesn’t feel like the Maker cares for me... or anyone.
- Sebastian: We all make our own choices, to do good as well as evil. That is our doing, not the Maker’s.
- Fenris: Perhaps. It’s... been a long time since I gave it any thought.
- Sebastian: It’s not too late to start.
- Sebastian: You know, when I return to Starkhaven you're welcome to come with me.
- Fenris: And do what, exactly?
- Sebastian: You're a fine warrior. If you could train men to fight like you do, we'd be unstoppable.
- Fenris: I'm no leader, and I doubt humans would want me training them.
- Sebastian: Then why not train elves? I bet there's plenty who would admire all you've accomplished.
- Fenris: I... haven't accomplished anything.
- Sebastian: No? You are your own man, living as you see fit—you give yourself too little credit.
- Fenris: You are being kind.
- Sebastian: Not at all. Think about it.
Once you complete Repentance:
- Sebastian: You know, Fenris, as a brother in the Chantry, I'm allowed to hear confessions.
- Fenris: Why would you tell me this?
- Sebastian: I know Danarius made you do things. I thought you might be more comfortable talking to a friend.
- Sebastian: You should know, a murder committed under duress is a sin on the one who ordered it, not the one whose hands carried out the deed.
- Fenris: Have I not spoken enough of my past? Does everyone in Kirkwall wish to hear every sordid detail?
If Isabela is in the party:
- Isabela: I know I do.
- Sebastian: Sometimes, it's painful to speak. But it's the only way the wound can be lanced.
- Sebastian: I saw you at the Chantry last week, Fenris, but I haven't seen you back since.
- Fenris: I was only delivering something: you needn't concern yourself.
- Sebastian: But you were praying. Or was that part of the delivery?
- Fenris: I was... trying to blend in.
- Sebastian: (Laughs) Oh, yes! You wouldn't want to ruin your reputation.
- Fenris: Don't you have a city to re-conquer?
- Fenris: Terrible things do happen, Sebastian.
- Sebastian: But what we see is only a piece of the puzzle. Only the Maker can see the greater picture.
- Fenris: The guilty prosper. Innocents die.
- Sebastian: And then they are brought to the side of the Maker. Their suffering ends. There is always a greater purpose.
- Fenris: Danarius once killed a little boy to fuel blood magic that let him impress his fellow Senators at a party. What was the purpose there?
- Sebastian: Perhaps it was witnessing that which will give you the strength to prevent it ever happening again.
- Sebastian: It's our duty to tell the templars.
- Fenris: Then why haven't you done it?
- Sebastian: I guess I was hoping they'd come to it on their own.
- Fenris: And then you wouldn't have to betray Hawke's friends, right?
- Sebastian: That's not reason enough to allow a maleficar to walk free.
If Anders is in the party:
- Anders: You think the templars don't know I'm here? They just haven't caught me yet.
If Merrill is in the party:
- Merrill: Are you talking about me?
- Sebastian: Which of us should do it? Shall we draw lots?
- Fenris: Uh-uh. You want to turn them in, you work it out with Hawke.
If Faith has been completed
- Fenris: So that's it? You're not returning to Starkhaven now?
- Sebastian: There are greater things that need to be done, Fenris.
- Fenris: And what about avenging your family? Does that not need to be done?
- Sebastian: What has my vengeance accomplished except to spill more blood?
- Sebastian: No, I must put my faith in the Maker. He will set my path before me.
- Fenris: I can't decide if it is certainty you have, or blindness.
- Sebastian: (Chuckles) At least you can't decide.
Sebastian and Isabela
- Sebastian: Is this getting you any closer to your ship?
- Isabela: Huh?
- Sebastian: I just... don't understand why you're working with Hawke. You don't seem to care about anything we do.
- Sebastian: What's keeping you here?
If Hawke and Isabela have slept together:
- Isabela: Mostly the sex. Hawke is an absolute tiger between the sheets. I mean all night, every night.
- Isabela: Oh cute! You're blushing.
- Isabela: Mostly the Blooming Rose. I'm paid up through the end of the year. I'd hate not to use it.
- Sebastian: The... brothel?
- Isabela: What? Women can't go to brothels, too? You're just not using your imagination.
- Isabela: Oh, look! Now you are. You're cute when you're blushing.
- Sebastian: I notice you talk about... vulgar things quite a bit.
- Isabela: Do you want me to stop? Do I make you... uncomfortable?
- Sebastian: It was just an observation, really.
- Isabela: It's a bad habit I picked up, spending years with foul-mouthed pirates.
- Isabela: Pirates only care about a small number of very specific things: the sea, strong drink, and booty. Both kinds.
- Sebastian: I used to be like you, you know.
- Isabela: You used to be a woman?
- Sebastian: No!
- Isabela: That explains a lot.
- Sebastian: My family put me in the Chantry because I was giving them a bad name.
- Sebastian: It was the best thing that ever happened to me. I found peace. I found a purpose.
- Sebastian: Before I came here, I used to be out to all hours, drinking and whoring. I didn't believe in anything except my own pleasure.
- Isabela: Why couldn't I have met you then?
- Isabela: All right, let's get this over with.
- Sebastian: A duel?
- Isabela: No, the sermon. The finger-wagging, the guilt-trips, telling me how an unexamined life isn't worth living.
- Sebastian: I wasn't going to—
- Isabela: You weren't? You weren't going to tell me to comfort the needy and give freely of myself?
- Sebastian: From what I hear, you already give yourself quite freely.
- Isabela: Ooh. You got me there.
- Sebastian: That was very brave, coming back to face the Qunari.
- Isabela: It was idiotic. They would have killed me.
- Sebastian: And you returned anyway. You couldn't face the thought of so many innocents dying for something you could prevent.
- Isabela: Tell that to the viscount.
- Sebastian: It's frightening, isn't it, to realize you have the potential to be a better person?
- Sebastian: You've been watching me all day. It's getting a little... distracting.
- Isabela: Merrill's right. Your armor is shiny. I can see myself in it. Look!
- Isabela: Shit. Oh, shit. Is that a wrinkle? Is that a wrinkle between my brows?
- Sebastian: Um. I don't see—
- Isabela: Hold still!
- Isabela: So, I've never understood why the Chantry says if you're good, you'll be taken up to the Maker's side.
- Sebastian: Those who die with the sins cleansed from their souls will walk beside the Maker in eternity.
- Isabela: That doesn't sound fun!
- Isabela: If they really want people to be good, shouldn't they offer an afterlife with... lakes of wine and a dozen naked virgins?
- Sebastian: Anyone who wants that will be going to the Void.
- Isabela: Sounds like that's where all the good parties will be.
- Isabela: It's been years, and not once have you tried to get me to repent or turn to the Maker.
- Sebastian: Preaching seldom works, Isabela. To change a person's heart, one has to lead by example.
- Isabela: Huh. That makes sense. I can respect that.
- Sebastian: I grew weary of the strings of nameless lovers and the nights full of mindless pleasure. You will, too.
- Isabela: (Gasps) That's the cruelest thing anyone's ever said to me!
- Isabela: I think I'm going to cry.
Sebastian and Merrill
- Sebastian: Have you heard the Chant of Light?
- Merrill: That's the song they sing at the Chantry, right? It's pretty... but a little repetitive.
- Sebastian: Then you know the story? How Andraste became the Maker's divine bride and convinced Him to offer us a second chance?
- Merrill: Right. But I never understood why she had to die.
- Sebastian: Her mortal husband betrayed her out of jealousy.
- Merrill: But if He wanted her to spread her faith, couldn't she do that better alive?
- Sebastian: The Maker gave us free will. By his betrayal, Maferath showed us that men were not yet worth saving.
- Merrill: I don't know. It's a nice story, but I think it's got some holes.
- Merrill: Your armor is very shiny, Sebastian. Doesn't that make you an easier target?
- Sebastian: The Light of the Maker is my armor, Merrill. I am not afraid.
- Merrill: Maybe you could ask Him to make His Light less shiny? Then you wouldn't need as much armor.
- Merrill: If your city was stolen, why didn't you just call the guards?
- Sebastian: I'm afraid the matter can't be handled by guards, Merrill.
- Merrill: Aveline could help you! She's very good at making thieves give things back. I think it's because she's so tall.
- Sebastian: This is beyond even Aveline's power, I'm sorry to say.
- Merrill: Are you sure? Have you seen her hit people?
If Aveline is in the party:
- Aveline: I can hear every word you're saying.
- Sebastian: So what do you believe, Merrill?
- Merrill: Our gods abandoned us long ago. They haven't answered our prayers since the fall of Arlathan.
- Merrill: When we've proven that we're elves again, that we didn't lose everything, they'll come back to us.
- Sebastian: We say the same of the Maker.
- Sebastian: Perhaps they're only different names for the same divine force that created the world.
- Merrill: The Maker wants you to be elves?
- Merrill: I've always wondered: how do your Divines choose their names?
- Sebastian: They write all the best sacred names on slips of paper and stuff them in a miter.
- Sebastian: Then the newly elected Divine picks a name out of the hat.
- Merrill: What if she picks a name she doesn't like? Does she have to keep it?
- Sebastian: Of course she does. How do you think we got four Divines named Hortensia?
- Merrill: Does your bow have a name? Varric's bow has a name.
- Sebastian: I'm afraid I can't compete with our dear dwarf's... relationship to his weapon.
- Merrill: You could call it Philomela!
- Sebastian: Why would I do that?
- Merrill: Because it reminds me of a woman in the alienage. Skinny, pointed, and always throwing things at people.
- Merrill: What does your Chantry do?
- Merrill: I mean, you keep saying how great it is. Anders and Isabela tell me to stay away from it. But what does it do?
- Merrill: Among the Dalish, the Keepers teach the children, preserve our history, perform magic. The priestesses here just... sing.
- Sebastian: The Chantry does many charitable works. It cares for widows and orphans—
- Merrill: Who in the Dalish would just be part of the clan, like everyone else.
- Merrill: I just don't get it.
After completing A New Path:
- Sebastian: You need to seek atonement.
- Merrill: I know I should've died there, not Marethari. Don't you think I feel guilty enough?
- Sebastian: Guilt isn't a punishment. It's a reminder of the things you haven't set right.
- Sebastian: The only way to shed its burden is to repent with a sincere heart and to rectify your failings.
- Merrill: But how?
- Merrill: The Keeper is dead, my clan lost everything because of me.
- Merrill: There's not enough I can do in this lifetime to make up for that.
- Sebastian: It was your pride that led you to the demon. Admitting what you can't do is a good first step.
Sebastian and Varric
- Sebastian: It's been very exciting working with Hawke.
- Varric: Are you for real?
If Hawke is male:
- Sebastian: It seems like he's involved every time there's a crisis in Kirkwall.
If Hawke is female:
- Sebastian: It seems like she's involved every time something goes wrong in Kirkwall.
- Sebastian: I've never had so many opportunities to help people!
- Varric: All right. I thought I was getting tired of moody. I take it back.
- Varric: You're making my teeth ache.
- Varric: So, Choir Boy, this usurper of yours is... twenty feet tall?
- Sebastian: Not even close, no.
- Varric: But he has claws for hands, right?
- Sebastian: Fingers. Perfectly normal ones. If a little fat, perhaps.
- Varric: He eats babies, though. And farts fire.
- Sebastian: You're not serious, I hope.
- Varric: You can't even pretend to be interesting, can you?
- Sebastian: You must forgive your brother.
- Varric: While you were off playing prince, Bartrand trapped us in the Deep Roads and left us to die.
- Sebastian: When you hold onto anger, it colors everything you do.
- Sebastian: You escaped the Deep Roads. You built a life without your brother. Do you still want him haunting you?
- Varric: Oh, go find some beggars to sing to, will you?
- Varric: Tell us about Starkhaven, Choir Boy. I'm sure we're all burning with curiosity about your far-away land.
- Sebastian: "My far-away land?" It's inland Free Marches, not on the moon.
- Varric: And here I was hoping...
- Sebastian: It's a lot like here. But fewer dead people.
- Varric: Well, you don't have Hawke.
- Varric: I've heard rumors about Starkhaven, you know.
- Varric: They say you eat the dead up there. And murder strangers in the street.
- Sebastian: Why do I suspect that when you say you've "heard" rumors, you mean you've invented some?
- Varric: Six of one, half-dozen of another.
- Varric: You know, Choir Boy, I wouldn't normally say this, but—the shiny white armor? It works for you.
- Sebastian: That's uncharacteristically kind of you, Varric.
- Varric: Makes you look like a lacquered pilot whale.
- Sebastian: Ah, now that was much more in-character.
- Sebastian: You know, if you have time, I could give you a few archery pointers.
- Varric: Excuse me?
- Sebastian: Sometimes your shots veer a little left, I thought maybe your cocking ring was off.
- Sebastian: I could take a look if you like.
- Varric: You want to touch Bianca's cocking ring?
- Sebastian: It was just a thought.
- Varric: So, I've known you for three years now. I give up. You beat me. What is it?
- Varric: You like boys? Sheep? You slept with your sister?
- Sebastian: What are you talking about?
- Varric: What are you hiding? Nobody's this bloody clean.
- Varric: After you leave the chantry you... get drunk at the Hanged Man and walk around in women's clothes?
If Isabela is in the party:
- Isabela: Not that I've seen. Unfortunately.
- Sebastian: I've been honest with you and Hawke.
- Varric: Liar.
- Sebastian: Lying is a sin.
- Outside the Hawke Estate (Amell Estate): My mother always said the Amells were the best family in Kirkwall.
