Clearly he will not be there in the event that you killed him during the City Elf Origin; however, in the event that you did not, then your ensuing discussion would be rather different and Warden also has a choice of demanding him to become listed on the Chantry to be able to repent for their sins in exchange for their freedom. Their lockbox is located in the area using the guard that appears the security as soon as the warden interrupts the guard and the maid. Vaughan can be spared in exchange for their vote on Landsmeet.
