Speak with Seneschal Bran then head over to The Hanged Man. Speak to Orwald the Braggart and a fight will ensue if you don’t use Aveline as a mediator. If you fought then loot the bodies for Seneschal’s Leather Straps and Guardian of Enasalin . Go to the Chantry by day to talk with Mother Petrice who will divulge some information. Go to Ser Varnell’s Refuge at day and head north then up the steps. The chest - standard in the junction area is guarded by a trap - standard , worth disarming considering the Stitch-Maker is inside.

As you enter the next room you will catch Ser Varnell red-handed. Depending on how you’ve been responding during this quest you can either fight Ser Varnell and his lackies, have them kill the Qunari, or fight the Qunari yourself.

Enter Ser Varnell's Refuge and you'll come across a scene. Afterwards you'll have to fight.

Loot Ser Varnell for the River’s Wave shield and check the crate near the exit for Shield of the Knight Herself . When you speak with the Viscount you have two options, burn the bodies to hide the mess or not. Choosing to burn them will give a Side Quest in Act III but being honest with the Arishok will gain his respect.

You can head to the Docks and speak with the Arishok about the incident. Once again, being honest with the Arishok gains his respect. Mother Petrice is still at the Chantry and can also be confronted on the situation.
