Villa Maurel is the estate of Lord Ramond Maurel, situated in the Emerald Graves in the Dales of Orlais.

Background[edit | edit source]

Due to the War of the Lions, Lord Maurel abandons the Villa for the safety of Val Royeaux. The Villa then is taken over by the Freemen of the Dales, whom are deserters of the Orlesian Imperial Army, and is currently serving as their headquarters.

Dragon Age: Inquisition.


The operations being carried out by the Freemen of the Dales in Villa Maurel, unbeknownst to them, are in servitude of the Elder One. The Freemen are being manipulated by the Venatori and the Red Templars of whom are both actively progressing the Elder One's sinister agenda. After clashing with Costeau, a corrupt Chantry sister (operating out of the Veridium Mine), and Auguste, a former Chevalier and the current leader of the Freemen (operating out of Argon's Lodge), the Inquisitor sets out to investigate Villa Maurel and confront another of the Freemen's leaders, General Maliphant.
