These Demons Are Clever is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

A journal recovered in the Mire suggests a rather unstable apostate is roaming about somewhere. The apostate, apparently named Widris, seems to be mixed up with some demons and could be dangerous.

Acquisition Edit

Find Apostate Widris's Journal near the second beacon. Her journal reveals a rather paranoid mind and indicates Widris has been making deals with demons.

Background Edit

This thick journal is half-undecipherable. The parts that can be read are splattered with ink, as if the author had written them in a hurry:

There were years of notes in that book. Years! Who could have taken it? Or deciphered it? Did someone follow me from the Circle? I bet it was Wernam or Clariss! They always were jealous little busybodies. If they saw what I've done, the demons I've harnessed, they'd be green with envy. Who's afraid of spirits now, you simpering ewes!

But I must have my book back. I will write down the cipher again, before I forget. Again. These demons are clever. I can't have them demanding a price for decrypting my own notes. The concoctions I can make with the plants here, in safe amounts, will open my mind to vistas past the Fade. The demons hint it is beyond me, because they wish to undermine me. It's so clear. It's so very clear.
—From Codex entry: Apostate Widris's Journal

Walkthrough Edit

Find Widris.

As you get the quest, you'll be given an area in the map to search. One of the rifts for Rifts in the Mire is located in the vicinity so it is a good idea to take care of that first. Head west out of the arena-like structure through a gap in the rocks then north to find the Hidden Apostate's Camp where Widris is found.

The objective updates so that you have to kill Widris. She will summon wraiths to help her, and has some armor. After defeating her the quest will be completed. Note the elven artifact in the camp.
