The Breach

InquisitionEpilogueSlide1_small.jpg
'Tis said that Corypheus woke after his long slumber and found the world gone awry.
He fought to bring back those days of magic and shadow, to raise himself as a god, and set things right.
Now we are left with a scar in the sky to remind us of what almost was.
It tells us that a great victory against chaos was won, but left the world forever changed.

The Inquisition

InquisitionEpilogueSlideEnd_small.jpg
  • And what of the Inquisition itself?
  1. Its web of influence is felt in every hall. Through diplomacy and the trading of favors, it has gathered the power to shake kingdoms.
  2. It has eyes and ears in every hall. No secrets are beyond its reach, and that knowledge has become the source of its power.
  3. Its military might has grown, now rivaling that of kingdoms. Fear of the Inquisition's army has become the true source of its power.
    I leave Skyhold now, knowing that power will continue to grow.
    The Inquisitor is a symbol to many, a leader of the changing world order.
    To others, (s)he has become a target.
    They linger in the shadows, waiting for their day to come.
    When it does, the Inquisition shall stand ready.

Flemeth and Solas

Dragon Age- Inquisition secret post credits ending video
  • In the aftermath of the Elder One's defeat, Flemeth is seen sending something magical through an Eluvian. Solas encounters Flemeth, in an unknown location next to the Eluvian in a post-epilogue conversation. She reveals him to be the Dread Wolf Fen'Harel, addressing him as an "old friend", while chastising him for mistakenly allowing Corypheus access to the Orb of Destruction. Solas reveals that he gave the orb to Corypheus seeking to unlock its true power, because he was unable to due to being too weak after awakening from his long slumber. Solas seems remorseful for his actions and recognizing that he deserves punishment, but deeming himself too prominent to be killed, Solas admits that "I should pay the price, but the People, they need me." After their brief exchange, Flemeth expresses disappointment towards Solas before sharing an embrace, only for Flemeth to be effected by Solas in someway. Flemeth collapses in his arms, seemingly petrified while Solas looks up with eyes glowing with power.

      When I finished the game the only person walking away from Skyhold in the picture was Morrigan but in this post is shows 2 people, why was this different for me?

        You are missing an ending pertaining to "Wicked Heart and Wicked Minds". There is a ending in which you can reunite Celene and Briala, and Gaspard is executed. <br/> <br/>This ending is different than just having Celene rule, Briala alive, Gaspard dead.
