* Hypocrite: Can look like one in ''Inquistion'', if s/he was a blood mage in ''DAII,'' since ''Inquisition'' doesn't [[NoCanonForTheWicked acknowledge if Hawke was a blood mage or not]]. Hawke decries blood mages and the use of blood magic any time they encounter it in ''Inquisition'' regardless of class or specialization.

[[Spoiler:Learning that Malcom didn't want to pass on his magic shocks Bethany, who if alive was the only one of the three to share his power.

* {{Warrior Prince}}ss[=/=]BadassPrincess: A female Hawke becomes part of the nobility of Kirkwall, and is thus rightfully entitled to be called Lady Hawke (in addition to Champion). In addition, there are some further royal upgrades available depending on player choices. [[spoiler:If female Hawke sides with the Templars, she will end the game as Viscountess of Kirkwall. And if she romances Sebastian, the game can end with a declaration of their intent to get married, which makes her Princess of Starkhaven.]]

[[SubvertedTrope By the end of the game, there seem to be no negative consequences, at least for Hawke.]] Considering their CosmicPlaything status this could actually count as a minor PlotTwist.

Throughout the game, Aveline, the Viscount, the Templars, and even the Arishok all use Hawke as a [[TakeAThirdOption neutral third party agent]] so that if s/he gets caught, they can claim plausible deniability in that Hawke isn't doing anything ''officially'' sanctioned.

* LastNameBasis: Much like [[Franchise/MassEffect Shepard before]], practically everyone refers to Hawke by their last name. More than once, Hawke will introduce him/herself as such; apparently, they prefer being on a {{last name basis}}. (In terms of practicality, it's a gameplay technique designed to get around the fact that [[HelloInsertNameHere you can give Hawke any first name you want]] - much like having everyone address the hero of the first game as "Warden".)

Bethany either dies in Lothering, gets sent to the Circle, dies in the Deep Roads, or becomes a Grey Warden. The same fates await Carver, except he joins the Templars instead of the Circle.

By Act 3, only Gamlen, Charade, Bodahn, and Sandal (and Orana if she was added to the household) are left.]] It makes Hawke's offer for the chosen love interest to move in with him/her much more poignant.

Bodahn and Sandal go from assisting the Warden's wandering party to serving in Hawke's noble household. Hawke has several chance encounters with many of the Warden's former associates, such as Leliana, Zevran, Alistair and Nathaniel.

Her codex entry mentions that, should Hawke be a mage him/herself, she deeply envied how her eldest sibling embraced their powers instead of fearing them. ''The World of Thedas, vol. 2'' contains a report, written by someone who met the family in Lothering and was somehow privy to Bethany's apostate status, which talks about how much the girl clearly would rather not have magic.



** "Sunshine" may be a particularly MeaningfulName. Varric has a number of lines, in party banter and cutscenes, in which he mentions that part of the reason he prefers being a surface dwarf is because he enjoys being in the sunlight. Unlike the more superficial or sarcastic names he gives most of the other companions, [[AffectionateNickname he named Bethany after something he loves]], and his interactions with her are some of the warmest he has in either game where he appears.

** A very sweet ShipTease exists between her and ''Varric'', of all people. His nickname for her, Sunshine, potentially has a secondary meaning when you take into account the various lines he has about preferring sunny weather. He sometimes calls her "Milady" or "Milady Sunshine," which makes her giggle, and he has a number of party banter lines in which he compliments her beauty. She's also the only party member to whom he is absolutely never snarky. [[spoiler:He expresses regret for her fate if she joins the Circle, and if she dies in the Deep Roads, he laments her loss and swears vengeance against Bartrand for causing it; if she becomes a Warden, he's pretty much the only party member with whom her interactions aren't cold. In either case, if she's brought back for the DLC adventures, he all but outright states that he's missed her and is clearly happy to have her there.]] There's a lot of affection in their interactions, and his dialogue in ''Inquisition'' indicates that he writes to her frequently.

One can imagine that part of the reason that Carver feels so much resentment towards Hawke is due to the death of their father, which would be twice as hard to deal with when their eldest sibling, who is essentially the same person, then stepped into the role as head of the household.

* UngratefulBastard: Being an UptownGirl, she expected the OldMoney to be waiting for her whenever she returned, and will accept nothing less. As Gamlen learned the hard way, even if you get her and her family into the city and provide room and board with whatever meager means available to you, don't expect any gratitude unless it comes with a mansion and a pile of gold.
-->'''Leandra:''' My children should be among the nobility! Not indentured servitude.

* DebateAndSwitch: When the Hawkes first arrive in Kirkwall, Leandra is (rightfully) shocked to learn that [[MeaningfulName Gamlen gambled]] the family fortune away without telling her, and then used her new family's distress to indenture her children to pay off his debts. On the other hand, [[JerkassHasAPoint Gamlen counters]] that Leandra ''chose'' to [[DefectorFromDecadence leave the family fortune behind decades ago]], didn't return until she needed something, and then complained when the help he could offer wasn't up to her standards. (Even after living in his home rent-free for over a year.) An interesting conflict where BothSidesHaveAPoint... until it's revealed that their parents left Leandra everything and Gamlen stole her inheritance, rendering his side of the argument completely moot.
* DirtyOldMan: Visits the Blooming Rose fairly regularly. [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Also asks a female Hawke about details if she hooks up with Isabela]], which is more than a little creepy. During ''Mark of the Assassin'', Isabela can ask Hawke to talk to him. Apparently, he's often... inappropriate.

* JerkassHasAPoint: For all his vices and unpleasantness (and his hand in taking and losing the family estate), Gamlen is not ''entirely'' wrong when he says that Leandra ''chose'' to leave the family fortune behind years ago, didn't return even when her family needed her, and then just ''expected'' the family fortune to be waiting for her whenever she came back, despite doing ''none'' of the work to help maintain it over the years.
-->'''Gamlen:''' We all have our burdens to bear. Mine was taking care of the life you ''chose'' to leave behind.
** Also, that for all Leandra's talk that "love is more important than money," all she does from the moment they reunite is nag and criticize Gamlen for not having as much money as she expected him to have, ''even before'' it's revealed that their parents left her everything.



* {{Jerkass}}: He comes across this way often in Act 1, quarreling with his sister about their parents' will and being generally unpleasant to her children. As Bethany remarks to her elder sibling, "I think there's a reason Mother never talked about him much."

** Although you can subvert this by preventing him from meeting [[spoiler: his daughter]] and rubbing your success in his face. Even if you don't, it's implied that Hawke refuses to let Gamlen live at the estate as punishment for everything he pulled.

* TheResenter: Dislikes his sister for running off with an apostate, leaving him to tend to their dying parents. And all they talked about was her. [[spoiler:Even then, he still mourns Leandra's death.]]
* SelfServingMemory: If he doesn't subconsciously play up his memories of being TheUnfavorite to justify taking his sister's inheritance, then he seems to overlook that he had a gambling problem even when his parents were still alive, so it's very likely that they left control of the family fortune to Leandra because they knew he was bad with money, not because they didn't love him. Leandra also has to remind him that she didn't come to their parents' funeral because the twins had just been born.
