The Chanter's Board
- Main article: Duty (Dragon Age II)
The first time Hawke approaches the Kirkwall chantry in Act 1, a scene will play where Grand Cleric Elthina is seen arguing with a man furious over the murder of his family. Checking the chanter's board starts the quest Duty. Once dispatching the mercenaries, the poster of the bounty reveals himself to be Sebastian Vael, prince of Starkhaven. He thanks Hawke and pays the bounty.
- Main article: Repentance
In Act 2, Sebastian will become a permanent companion, and will ask Hawke to confront the family responsible for his parents' murder. After dispatching Lady Harimann, Sebastian will return to the chantry and ponder whether he should remain a Chantry initiate or march on Starkhaven to claim his throne.

- The DLC was originally intended to focus around Sebastian and Nathaniel Howe, but the concept was changed due to the possibility of Nathaniel's execution.
- Sometimes when you go to the Chantry board to pick up the quest Duty, nothing is available with which to interact. This happens if the DLC is installed after clearing the jobs during Act 2. His Act 3 companion quest will still be available.
- It appears that the 1.04 patch make the event conversations harder to load, the screen fades and Loading appears on the bottom right of the screen. It can eventually make the end of the quests Repentance and Faith enter in a loading loop. A workaround is available (see individual pages).
