Someone to Lose is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

A Dalish teenager named Valorin ran off after being passed over for the Keeper's apprenticeship. He has yet to return and his sister Emalien fears the worst.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

Speak with Emalien at the Dalish Encampment on the Exalted Plains.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Valorin's Journal

  • Find Valorin's corpse in a destroyed house just north of the quest marker.
  • Return Valorin's effects to Emalien at the Dalish Encampment. How the news is delivered to Emalien will affect companion approval and the amount of Dalish Favor granted for the side quest By the Grace of the Dalish (see Approval below).
Note: If Cole is in the active party he will provide some unique dialogue when finding Valorin's body and after completing the quest with Emalien.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Completing the quest yields:

  • 128 XP
  • Influence 80

Approval[edit | edit source]

  • When Emalien asks what was learned, the Inquisitor can respond in the following ways:
He was brave.
  • DAIApproval.png Dalish Favor +2
  • Dorian / Solas DAIApproval.png Slightly Disapproves
  • Blackwall DAIApproval.png Slightly Approves
  • Cole DAIApproval.png Approves (whether or not he is in the party)
Teenagers are stupid.
