With passion'd breath does the darkness creep,
It is the whisper in the night, the lie upon your sleep

Something goes wrong when Dorian and Eve Trevelyan are sent back from the dark future. Eve falls through the porthole before the spell is ready, and ends up not back in Redcliffe but in the lap of Knight-Captain Cullen in his office in Kirkwall.
The Inquisitor thinks she knows how much trouble she is in- after all, she has heard the stories about Cullen's feelings on mages. What she doesn't realize is that late-Kirkwall Cullen was not only bigoted, but half-mad (from the lyrium idol, from stress, from never sleeping).
Cullen knows that Eve is a mage. Cullen knows that she has a large, green hole in her hand - But Cullen doesn't think that the Inquisitor is a demon. Slightly unhinged by lack of sleep, stress and his personal demons the only explanation his mind can come up with is that the beautiful mage who just fell in is lap is his Maker-sent reward. He has no intention of letting her go anywhere, much less back to the future.

Not all relationships can stand the test of time—especially when said relationship blossoms in tandem with the mounting pressures from the Inquisition.
Cullen and the Inquisitor grow apart just before Corypheus is defeated. In the aftermath, the tension between them and Cullen’s worsening symptoms from his lyrium withdrawal convince him to leave his post and return to South Reach to be with his family. Almost two years later, the Inquisitor arrives there on business and sees him again for the first time. Unsurprisingly, he has not gotten any less handsome, and she is not any less regretful about what happened between them. But reconciliation is not an easy process, nor is it an inevitable one.

"I could," he says to Cullen in an easy, conversational tone, "whip you for it. But you're no stranger to pain, no? It would teach you little, if aught, and the Herald would hate us for it. Her pain would be more instructive, but again, she would only hate us."
