Those noble ponces won't have the last laugh, eh?

Slim Couldry can be found in the Denerim Market District. He is interested in getting back at the nobility, and for a cut he offers the Warden information on how to lessen the wealth of some nobles.

Background Edit

He is elf-blooded and grew up in the Alienage.[1] According to Slim, he has a huge family consisting of fifteen cousins. Slim is also a very devout Andrastian.

Involvement Edit

Dragon Age: Origins Edit

Slim Couldry manages the Crime Wave questline, and will only appear after the Warden obtains the Stealing skill or Stealth talent.


Location of Slim Couldry

Note: Ideally the Warden must have both the Stealth and Stealing skill in order to complete all eight quests. However, if only the stealing skill is present, both quest lines can become available by choosing the "I want to know it all" dialogue option, and the quests may be completed using companions.

Note: If Slim Couldry is not interacted with before the end of the Landsmeet, he will disappear and the quest will not be available.

Slim in Dragon Age: Deception #2

Around 9:37 Dragon, Slim Couldry acts as a go-between for the sale of items stolen by Olivia Pryde. However, when he realizes that her latest stolen item is a pendant belonging to Ser Aaron Hawthorne, a landless knight rather than a wealthy noble, he returns the pendant to its proper owner, telling him he is happy to shoulder the loss for someone he considers one of his own. He also decides to permanently cut ties with Olivia.

Quotes Edit

  • (speaking of the Tears of Andraste) "Growing up in the Alienage you want to believe in something. Something that explains the suffering. I have faith, not everyone does."
  • "I know I'm a criminal--but I fight the bastards that oppress my people with the skills the Maker gave me."
