* InformedAttribute: While Aveline is ''supposed'' to be an extremely competent, efficient guard Captain... the player is never actually shown this. Aveline often needs to run to Hawke for help with issues that the guards can't handle on their own. She completely botches the investigation of [[spoiler: Quentin and the various missing/murderered women, which leads to Leandra's death]] and even dismisses the claims and tries to have Hawke convince the Templar investigating it to give up. She neglects to investigate the possible rape of an Elven woman by her own guardsmen. Criminal gangs run rampant in Kirkwall with the guards not even attempting to stop them. In fact, the only productive thing Aveline appears to do as guard captain is lower the guards' death rates (and even then, this is told to the player rather than shown, bolstering the case for this trope)

Somewhat justified in that Varric tends to be a bit of an UnreliableNarrator and may have skipped over parts of what she did.

* SexyDiscretionShot: The sex scenes are tamer here than in ''Origins''. Though at least they don't have ludicrous, randomly appearing ugly underwear like the ''Origins'' sex scenes did.

** Also, toward the end of Act 2, tensions between Kirkwall and the Qunari are reaching their boiling point, with open warfare being apparent and imminent for everyone not in a coma - yet Aveline decides it's much more important to grab Hawke to march up to the Arishok and ''demand'' they return a handful elven converts who're accused of killing a guard ''right now'', pissing off the already infuriated Qunari even further. Maybe better let this one slide to keep the peace, Avaline.

** In the quest "All That Remains", should Hawke resort to blood magic to find Leandra, Fenris doesn't protest and no rivalry points are gained from him, which is rather notable given his opinions on blood magic.
** He shows sympathy towards ''Anders'' at one point, after the latter kills Ella. He tells him that he should try to learn his limits, as a suggestion, not an insult.

* SugarAndIcePersonality: ''Very'' icy by default, but if accompanying the right people or if Hawke is nice to him (or even romances him), and he can show his softer side.

* TemptingFate: In his first Act II conversation, he reflects that it's been three years since Danarius sent anyone after him, and dares to hope that he's finally given up. Naturally, his personal quest for that act proves him wrong.

* TroubledButCute: He claims he doesn't brood. Varric isn't buying it for a second, and would describe him as broody every now and then.

* VillainsNeverLie: Averted for Hadriana, played straight for Danarius. While Fenris is understandably skeptical of Hadriana's information on his "sister" [[spoiler:which he spends years cautiously looking into to make sure it's true]], he and the party take Danarius' [[spoiler:and Fenris' sister's]] claim that [[spoiler:Fenris had ''competed'' for his lyrium markings]] at face value.

** He himself will be furious at Hawke if they choose [[spoiler: to take Orana as a slave]]. Be particularly blasé about it and he'll [[PardonMyKlingon curse at Hawke in Tevinter]] and [[SpitefulSpit spit at the ground]] before storming off. [[note]]He's quickly mollified and even a little ashamed of his outburst if you tell him you intend to pay her.[[/note]]

* DisproportionateRetribution: If Anders survives ''Dragon Age II'', Sebastian declares war on Kirkwall in ''Inquisition'' in hopes of annexing the city-state, even though Anders is not affiliated with Kirkwall.

** [[spoiler:After making very cruel remarks towards Merrill after the latter's final personal quest, he will (grudgingly) admit that the Keeper must have truly cared for her if she was willing to sacrifice herself for her, and (in his own [[JerkAss way]]) encourages her to live up to her memory]].
** He gets several other moments, like during the quest "A Bitter Pill," when he [[spoiler:shows genuine concern and sympathy for the elven slave Orana and gets angry if Hawke decide to take her as their slave]]. There are also many moments between him and [[spoiler:Hawke, especially if Hawke is in a friendly romance with him, or are at least friends, even if Hawke is a mage. Most of them are sweet enough to qualify as extremely heartwarming]].

* SuperSoldier: He mentions that there are other soldiers with markings like his, but they're very rare. [[spoiler: He had to compete against other warriors to earn the "honor", not that he was told about it going in]].
