* SkewedPriorities: PlayedForDrama. When one of her own guardsmen is formally accused of ''raping'' an Elven woman she dismisses it as "rumors" that she'll look into eventually (and doesn't even temporarily dismiss him from duty or put him on probation as a sign of good faith); but when the brothers of the alleged victim get tired of waiting and kill him, she ''immediately'' drops everything she's doing and cracks down on them first thing. [[SarcasmMode If only she was as prompt dealing with her own men as with civilians.]]

* AmnesiacDissonance: Among other things, he resents the lyrium markings and the power that was inflicted upon him. In his final companion quest "Alone," he discovers [[spoiler: that he had actually competed for them, for the sake of using the boon offered to the winner to free his family. At least, Danarius and his sister lead him to believe he did. He actually only competed for the boon to free his family. He didn't know about the ritual or what it would entail]].

* DespairEventHorizon: If the player chooses to [[spoiler:betray Fenris and give him back to Danarius. [[EtTuBrute Hawke's betrayal so utterly breaks his spirit and his faith in freedom and friendship, he just gives up without a fight]]. He doesn't even have the strength to show anger at you about it. Later, Hawke gets a letter from Danarius thanking them, telling them that Fenris has been memory-wiped again and is now perfectly obedient]].

* HappinessInSlavery: He tells Hawke that the reason most slaves don't simply run away or rebel is that they don't think of anything beyond satisfying their masters. The only reason he was able to subvert this trope and escape is because [[spoiler:he was accidentally separated from Danarius for a few months and in the care of the Fog Warriors, who treated him as a person instead of an object or a pet. After Danarius returned, the Fog Warriors were prepared to fight to protect him, but Danarius ordered Fenris to kill them [[MoreThanMindControl and he did so]]]]. The resulting WhatHaveIDone shocked him to his core and he ran.

** He's vehemently against slavery, yet supports locking up mages and denying them the freedoms and equal rights that others enjoy. Hawke can point out this hypocrisy at the final quest if [[spoiler: they side with the mages, prompting Fenris to turn against Meredith and support Hawke]].

* {{Irony}}: Fenris, who hates mages and magic, [[spoiler:has a sister training to be a magister]]. Just to rub it in, his {{Leitmotif}} sounds very similar to "Mage Pride."

* SlaveCollar: Used to have one. Danarius apparently used to like to keep him ''leashed''.
* SoWhatDoWeDoNow: The gist of his conversation in his final "Questioning Beliefs" conversation. He decides that even if neither he nor Hawke has a clear answer, it's entirely ''his'' decision for once.

''leashed'' as a parody of a Saarebas.

* DoesNotLikeMagic: The line he draws between "magic" and "mages" shifts a bit -- he's at his angriest directly after confronting one of his old tormentors (Hadriana). Having grown up in a society almost defined by mages abusing their power, he's very wary of any calls for mage freedom outside Tevinter.

* EveryoneHasStandards: Despite his hatred of most mages, and his intense and mutual dislike of Anders, when Sebastian brings up the idea of turning him or Merrill in, Fenris angrily refuses to betray Hawke's friends and, by extension, Hawke.
* FantasticRacism: He suspects that all mages, no matter their intentions, will eventually become power-hungry maniacs unless constantly controlled. [[spoiler:If Hawke sides with the mages in "The Final Straw," Fenris will turn against them unless he has been permanently locked in as a friend or rival or if Hawke calls him on the hypocrisy of supporting the enslavement of mages]]. With a high Friendship, [[CharacterDevelopment Fenris can move a little past this in regards to mages]]. He admits in conversations with both Hawke (particularly a mage Hawke) and Anders in the third act that there are a few mages who are strong enough that they have proven that they do not require the Circle's supervision, pointing out Bethany or a mage Hawke as a specific example.

Despite his hatred of most mages, and his intense and mutual dislike of Anders, when Sebastian brings up the idea of turning him or Merrill in, Fenris angrily refuses to betray Hawke's friends and, by extension, Hawke.
** In the immediate aftermath of "Dissent", he simply suggests it's time Anders recognizes his limitations, and outright says he's ''not'' condemning Anders' efforts in general. Given what he just saw Alrik doing, it's not surprising.

** [[spoiler: Hawke can also call him out on his hypocrisy concerning keeping mages captive during the final quest and get him to turn his back on supporting Meredith. It says something about how much he respects Hawke, considering how Anders has been browbeating him about that particular issue since Act 1 (or possibly about how much he dislikes Anders)]].

* FemininityFailure: She gets teased about being "mannish" by [[TheLadette hard-drinking, hard-fucking, foul-mouthed Isabela]]. ''That's'' how badly she fails at femininity. That said, it doesn't usually bother or cause any trouble for her, but it does prompt one quest in the second act where she needs help getting the guy she's interested in to even realise that she's a woman.
