* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: If Hawke is female, Bethany is the girly-girl to Hawke's tomboy, if only because Hawke doesn't really have any options to be particularly girlish in her wardrobe. Taking Bethany along for ''Mark of the Assassin'' in Act I shows that she really enjoys the pretty Orlesian clothes and would love to have some.

* KnightInSourArmour: Lampshaded in-universe. After [[spoiler: their mother's]] death, Aveline calls [[SadClown Snarky Hawke]] out and says that she doesn't buy their irreverent act for a minute. This becomes more apparent than ever in ''Inquisition''.

* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' mess with Hawke's family if you want to live. In fact, despite Snarky Hawke being irreverent and unflappable at practically all times, when [[spoiler:Leandra is kidnapped in Act II and Hawke's sibling in Act III]], Hawke's whole demeanor changes and the amount of anger in their voice that still seeps through their TranquilFury [[BewareTheNiceOnes indicates how fast you should be running away right now.]]
** It's the [[MoodWhiplash sheer speed]] from which Snarky Hawke goes from sarcasm to outright fury that makes it more startling;
--> '''Snarky Hawke''': I'm sorry to interrupt this ''[[SarcasmMode lovely]]'' student-teacher reunion but '''WHERE IS [[spoiler:MY MOTHER]]?!'''
** Hell, even Diplomatic Hawke's standard lines about not wanting to hurt anyone in those situations are uttered in a way that indicates that may not be their first instinct, particularly in one instance where Meredith drags [[spoiler:Hawke's mother, who was brutally murdered by a blood mage]], into her incessant anti-mage crusade: "Leave [[spoiler:my mother]] ''out of this''." Knight-Commander or no, if there was one moment in the game when Meredith's stoic demeanor was a mere facade, that was it.

* RageBreakingPoint: Generally you're given a few ways Hawke can respond to a situation, but their ever-diminishing family always remains a sore point.

''Legacy'' reveals that early in his marriage to Leandra, he was coerced into briefly working with the Grey Wardens, which he kept secret for a ''very'' good reason.
