Villa Maurel is the headquarters of the Freemen of the Dales, deserters from the Orlesian Imperial Army, who are, unbeknownst to them, being manipulated by the Venatori and Red Templars, so that they may fulfil the Elder One's sinister agenda. After clashing with a corrupt Chantry sister named Costeau and the head of the Freemen, a Chevalier by the name Auguste, the Inquisitor sets out to investigate Villa Maurel and confront another of the Freemen's leaders, Maliphant.
