The first ogre you encounter (in the first area) you must enthrall to continue. You simply have to keep him alive for the rest of the mission, extremely easy if you enthrall a hurlock emissary to heal him since the ogre cannot use poultices.

You will come to an area where you lose control of the ogre and have to fight quanari, you will have to go up the left hand side and round to then hit the levers and open the gate that is holding back the ogre. At this point you must enthrall him again. A second ogre spawned at this point for me so make sure you enthrall the one that was standing by the gate.

Then continue onwards to defend the archdemon and it should pop after the final cutscene.

EDIT: For those of you for which it has glitched, some of you should be able to unglitch this achievement by doing the following,

Delete save files assocated with the darkspawn chronicles, you should also try deleting and re-downloading the DLC.
Clear the update, this is done by going to memory from the dashboard and selecting Y to access harddrive options. Then clear system cache.

Load up the game and re-install the update.

Start a new game, side objectives are not needed, I would recommend saving often and ensuring you play as the ogre to stop him getting killed, it does not matter if other members of your party die.

You need to recruit the ogre before the men attacking him are killed, otherwise this achievement will not pop. Forget about all of the delete save files/cache etc described above - if you don't follow this first step the achievement will never register as the ogre is technically not a member of your party for the 'entire module' - the quest to save the ogre is completed when the archers are all dead and if your ogre is not a party member before then, he will not register this quest, therefore he will not have been a thrall for the 'whole' play-through

I know this is true becasue the first time I played the ogre died before the end. the 2nd time I played I recruited him after I killed all the men and kept him in the party the whole play-through (and yes recruited the correct one at the gate) but the achievement did not pop. The 3rd time when I got the achievement the only thing I did differently was to recruit him before the archers attacking him are all dead

hopefully this will alleviate some of the pain out there!
