Evelyn Trevelyan lived a cloistered, protected life in the Ostwick Circle as a member of the loyalist fraternity before the Templars there attempted to kill them all, forcing them to flee and join the mage delegation at the Chantry conclave.
In short order, the Inquisition was disbanded. Some were relieved to see the unpredictable organization dismantled. Others preferred to remember the Inquisition's good works and the many lives it had saved. Those who had served returned to their former lives, knowing they had stopped a great evil from destroying the world and hoping that the peace for which they had fought remained, once the Inquisition was gone.
Prior to the Inquisition being officially dissolved by Divine Victoria, Evelyn had her left forearm amputated because the Anchor was slowly killing her. As a mage, who often relies on both hands for casting spells, the amputation was not a decision she made lightly.

• Evelyn meets Cullen and Josephine for the first time.
• The Inquisitor visits Val Royeaux in order to talk to the remaining Chantry mothers, facing their accusations head-on and hoping that at least some of them will grow doubtful of the Chantry's claims about the newly formed Inquisition. After Revered Mother Hevara publicly denounces the Inquisition and declares its followers heretics, Lord Seeker Lucius interrupts her speech and one of the Templars under his command knocks her out. He mocks the Chantry mothers and dismisses any idea of allying with the Inquisition before leading all Templar forces out of the city, claiming it is not worthy of their protection.
• Belle is recruited as an agent of the Inquisition.
• The rebel mages at Redcliffe Castle went silent while the Inquisition dealt with the Templars at Therinfal Redoubt.
• Heeded Leliana's advice—a small party of Inquisition members, including Bull's Chargers, go to Redcliffe. The party pokes around the village before gaining entry to the castle through a secret passage, to see if they could find out what happened with the mages.
• The time ritual was disrupted, and Gereon Alexius was captured while the rebel mages led by Grand Enchanter Fiona—not wanting to become prisoners of the Inquisition—quickly abandon him to his fate and return to the Elder One to plot their next move.
• With the aid of the unsuspecting Arl of West Hills, Gallagher Wulff, the Venatori are able to boost their numbers by conscripting the rebel mages. With the Red Templars weakened by their failure to corrupt the Templars billeted at Therinfal Redoubt, Corypheus elects to use the Venatori to assault Haven and crush the Inquisition in retaliation for sealing the breach. Led by Calpernia, the Venatori attack Haven en masse. Grand Enchanter Fiona confronts the Herald of Andraste personally in an attempt to prevent them from firing the inner trebuchets but is slain. Haven is destroyed and the Venatori score a decisive victory over the Inquisition, although the Herald escapes along with many villagers and some Inquisition troops.
• Threnn, Seggrit, Harrit, Lysette, Flissa, Minaeve, & Adan were all saved.
• Alexius is presumed dead after having been left behind in the Chantry's cells when Haven fell to Corypheus and the Venatori.
• Solas leads the Inquisition to Skyhold.
• The Herald is officially named the Inquisitor; declares the Inquisition for "what's right".
• Judged for his crime of attacking Skyhold with a goat in retaliation for his son's death—Movran the Under is recruited as an agent for Cullen albeit assigned to Lord Abernache's service. The two develop something approximating a grudging mutual respect and become a highly effective entourage.
• Judged for his crimes of willfully corrupting his fellow Templars with Red Lyrium, betraying the Order, and murdering the Knight-Vigilant if it was discovered—Knight-Captain Denam is sentenced to death.
• Judged for his crimes of purposely drowning a number of citizens in Old Crestwood during the Fifth Blight—Gregory Dedrick is remanded to the Grey Wardens of Ferelden.
• Those Grey Wardens who survived the battle at Adamant ventured north into exile, at the Inquisitor's order. They returned to the mighty fortress of Weisshaupt, and word slowly spreads that a battle for control of the Order has erupted. Slowly, the Wardens withdraw from across the north as well. Some believe the ancient order is on the verge of vanishing forever.; the southern Grey Wardens still based out of Ferelden split from the northern faction.
• The Inquisition funds the construction of an elevated bridge over the toxic sulphur pits.
• The Venatori, led by Servis, were excavating when they accidentally broke into darkspawn-infested tunnels.
1.47. Ides of August*
* Combined with their respective "Sit In Judgement" scenarios.
• Judged for his crimes of apostasy, smuggling, and working for Corypheus—Crassius Servis is recruited as an informant for and agent of the Inquisition.
• Judged for his crimes of conscripting the Grey Wardens to serve Corypheus, and attempted assassination of Inquisitor Trevelyan—Livius Erimond is remanded to the Grey Wardens of Ferelden.
• Judged for her crime of murder (abetting a blood sacrifice)—Ser Ruth is publicly humiliated; first sent to the stocks and later sentenced to hard labor.
• Judged for her crimes of selling the quarry in Emprise du Lion to the Red Templars and continuing to take their gold even after finding out that they were growing Red Lyrium there—Mistress Poulin is sentenced to spend all her ill-earned money in rebuilding the town of Sahrnia.
• Grand Forest Villa plays a big part in the large lyrium smuggling operation uncovered with Bianca's help. The villa serves as the headquarter of bandits, who teamed up with the Carta to mine the abandoned Valammar. They transport the lyrium through the Hinterlands all the way to the East Road and use the docks in Lady Shayna's Valley to export it.
• Inquisition spies looked into the breakdown of contact between Val Royeaux and Imperial Army forces in the Dales. Troops on both sides agree to cease hostilities, then retreated to their camps to await the outcome of the upcoming peace talks. What occurred after the withdrawal is a mystery. The last communiqué from Gaspard's marshal reported a rash of desertions. After that, silence.
• The ramparts at are cleared, and the dead cremated.
• Pont Agur is repaired, and Citadelle Du Corbeau is retaken by Celene's troops.
• En route to Fort Revasan, the Inquisition faces off against another dragon—this time a Gamordan Stormrider.
• All three leaders were forced into a public truce by the Inquisitor. The empire's ties to the Inquisition would go on to remain strong, both sides benefiting from the ongoing relationship.
The alliance meets with the approval of Celene's subjects, who see it as a necessary move within the game. Orlais prospers, and soon forgets that it could very easily have been otherwise.
• Just as Mornay is about to be hanged, Blackwall interrupts the execution, and informs the crowd that he was responsible for the murdering of Callier family. His real name is in fact Thom Rainier, a former captain in Celene I's army and Mornay's former commanding officer. Mornay is saved from execution, and Thom Rainier is promptly imprisoned.
• Leliana contacts in the underworld aid in having Rainier released from prison. This route conveniently masks the Inquisition's involvement. Rainier is brought to Skyhold gates under cover of darkness.
1.63. The Chargers in Orlais*
* Combined War Table Operations Meet Orlesian Mercenaries & Press Orlesian Nobles
Heeded Josephine's advice, having Bull's Chargers lean on mercenaries currently serving Orlesian nobles who wish to rebel while she in turn leans on the nobles.
• In the Arbor Wilds, Morrigan fights alongside the Inquisition, Celene's chevaliers, and Templars against the Red Templars and Grey Wardens under Corypheus' control.
• At the entrance of the Temple of Mythal, Corypheus and Calpernia can be found along with their assembled Venatori forces facing down some Sentinel Elves.
• Evelyn completed the elven rituals, and accepted Abelas offer of an alliance. Abelas stated the Well will not be despoiled. He leaves, stating that he will destroy the Well in order to save it from such a fate. Outraged, Morrigan pursues him.
• A sentinel guide leads the Inquisition through the rest of the temple through secret passages allowing them to avoid combating Corypheus' minions in the inner sanctum.
• Avoided the fight against Calpernia entirely by exposing Corypheus' plot to use her.
• Abelas is convinced to relent in destroying the Well of Sorrows, and allows the Inquisition to access it.
1.71. The Descent (Main Quest)
The Inquisition receives an urgent request for aid from Orzammar, as earthquakes in the Deep Roads are threatening to collapse lyrium mines and cut off supply of the essential mineral to the surface.
• While the Inquisitor supported Vivienne's candidacy for the next Divine, Grand Cleric Victoire* played the Game better in the end—taking the Sunburst Throne for herself at the midnight hour. The task of keeping the peace as well as reforming and rebuilding old institutions associated with the Orlesian Chantry fell to its new divine. Given the name Divine Victoria, Victoire immediately enacted reform: a new Templar Order and a new Circle of Magi. She issued a proclamation denouncing the Inquisition, prompting it to be —at least publicly—dissolved. Initially, Divine Victoria had wanted its members arrested but pressure from the monarchy of Orlais prompted her to issue many of its key members a formal pardon instead.
* We have decided on this alternative so that anyone looking to play either Vivienne, Cassandra, or Leliana will have a bit more creative freedom in-game.
• Received a sending crystal from Dorian, which allows Evelyn and he to communicate from long distances.
• It is revealed the Viddasala has bought Qunari troops, including Kirkwall elves that had converted to the Qun, with plans on assassinating the leaders of the South and converting those who remained, but her plan is ultimately foiled by Solas.
• Jerran is spared, but his body is found later anyway.
• Chose to detain the Inquisition guard involved in a scuffle with an Orlesian servant.
• Iron Bull does not betray the Inquisitor.
• Evelyn figured out on her own that Solas is not an agent of Fen'Harel, but Fen'Harel himself, and confronts him about it.
• To save the Inquisitor's life, Solas takes the Anchor, along with her left forearm, and leaves through the eluvian.
• After the events at the Winter Palace, elves left the Inquisition under mysterious circumstances, as did elven servants across Thedas. None could say where they went, but those who believed the Inquisitor's story about Fen'Harel wondered just how large the Dread Wolf's forces were... and what the ancient elven rebel had planned.
• With the Dragon's Breath disrupted and any hope of a swift victory dashed, the Qunari retreated back to the North. Few knew what debates were waged in Par Vollen, but not long after the Exalted Council, the Qunari launched new attacks against Tevinter. Their aggression caught the already unstable Imperium off guard. Tevinter was soon mired in a war many feared could spread across Thedas. Historically, the two Divines—Orlesian and Imperial—had often united against Qunari threats leaving many to wonder what decision Divine Victoria will ultimately come to in the end. Thus far, the Qunari have already conquered the city of Ventus, known in the past as Qarinus, and the Nocen Sea remains the site of ongoing naval battles between the Imperium's fleet and Qunari dreadnoughts. Rumours of the inevitability of an Exalted March have begun to swirl throughout Thedas.
• In short order, by 9:44, the Inquisition was forced to disband. Some were relieved to see the unpredictable organization dismantled. Others preferred to remember the Inquisition's good works and the many lives it had saved. Those who had served returned to their former lives, knowing they had stopped a great evil from destroying the world and hoping that the peace for which they had fought remained, once the Inquisition was gone.
