* AuthorityInNameOnly: While both sides of the Mage/Templar conflict claim to defer to her, she has no actual influence over them. Even Meredith, theoretically under her direct command, is completely outside her control. If directly challenged on why she doesn't step in directly, she'll openly admit to having far less power than people think. The reason for this becomes apparent in the epilogue; [[spoiler: both factions are only hanging on to their Chantry affiliation by a thread, and will dump it entirely the second it becomes convenient to do so.]]

* GoodIsNotDumb: [[spoiler:Even if you side with Petrice and don't speak out against her claims against the Qunari, Elthina sees right through it]]. Whether you agree with her actions (or lack thereof) in the rest of the game, this moment certainly cements she is no fool.
* GoodShepherd: Cares deeply for the people of Kirkwall and will not abandon them, even if it means assassination. She isn't a pushover though, and if [[spoiler: Petrice gets shot down]] she barely blinks.
* GrayEyes: She fits either the idealistic or cold / inflexible interpretations.

* HeadInTheSandManagement: A very sympathetic example, but she is increasingly characterized by her passivity in the face of a situation that requires proactive leadership. Her inaction leads to the Templars turning Kirkwall into a draconian police state, and radicalizes the mages, already frustrated by the status quo and perceiving her passivity as tacit approval. She defends her lack of action by saying her power is far more limited than it would seem, but still makes virtually no onscreen attempt to stop any of the events of Kirkwall beyond essentially telling Orsino and Meredith to go to their rooms at the start of Act III.

* TheOnlyWayTheyWillLearn: Too bad it doesn't work out so well in practice.
-->'''Elthina:''' The Chantry is not a domineering father with the whip always in hand. She is a gentle mother, who knows that her children learn best when allowed to learn themselves.



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: {{Played with}}. Elthina is ''usually'' willing to listen to the various groups in a conflict from a rather neutral position, break up immidiate fights between their leaders... and that's basically it. Elthina does absolutely nothing to soothe tensions or pursue any kind of resolution to Kirkwall's problems, instead content to let them bubble beneath the surface, fostering more anger and resentment all around and pushing things closer to the boiling point. In addition, she often undermines the efforts of those who do seek some kind of resolution, including but not limited to having Hawke ''lie to the Divine'' about just how serious the Mage/Templar problems in Kirkwall are. [[RealityEnsues Unsurprisingly, the various political factions in Kirkwall get tired of Elthina doing absolutely nothing which causes the situation to spiral even out of Elthina's control]]. Twice. She does, however, bring up some valid points on why she doesn't explicitly take a side, as that would only increase tensions. At the same time, her claim that her power is less than it seems falls flat because the Chantry Hierarchy places Elthina as Meredith's direct superior, and there is no indication that Elthina is actually doing anything about Meredith's flagrant violations of Chantry law. Still, her death is what causes the tense stand-off to culminate in all-out slaughter.
* TeamMom: By Sebastian's account, she's "like a mother to everyone in the Chantry".

** This trope is, actually, deliberately {{Invoked}} as [[spoiler: Anders killed Elthina to force these issues to a very public head to make Meredith look as bad as possible while simultaneously making the mages look as sympathetic as possible. Elthina's neutrality was proving to be an obstacle for all the other political factions in their attempts to find ''any'' resolution to the Mage/Templar conflict, so finally one of them just decided to get rid of her and move his plans ahead.]]

* TellMeAboutMyFather: Hawke can have a nice conversation with her in Act 2 where she talks about the Amells and having been the one to dedicate Leandra as a baby.



* DeceptiveDisciple: If [[spoiler:she survives Act II]], dialogue in Act III indicates that [[spoiler:she's planning to instigate a schism in the Chantry to regain power, against Elthina.]]

* BigBad: About as close that the game gets to having one, given its InherentInTheSystem conclusion. The Kirkwall Templars were always powerful, but before her "reforms" they had some leeway in carrying out their duties (e.g Malcolm and Maurevar). Meredith puts an end to that, giving her Templars almost unlimited authority.

* ChekhovsGunman: Briefly seen at the beginning of Act I and occasionally mentioned. It's not until the end of Act II that she starts gaining significance. She doesn't even get a speaking line [[spoiler: until after she takes out a Saarebas that had gotten the drop on Hawke and co.]] in Act II.
* ChurchMilitant: In addition to her belief that mages are dangerous, Meredith is a strongly religious woman. Her faith is such that the Grand Cleric is pretty much the ''only'' person in Kirkwall she will listen to, and even that is rapidly deteriorating.

** [[spoiler:If Hawke is a mage, it's implied she's under the delusion that they've used BloodMagic to enthral her fellow Templars against her. When Cullen, her loyal second-in-command, informs her that to get to Hawke she'll have to [[GoThroughMe go through them]], it only serves to convince her further.]]

** She is notorious for using the [[FateWorseThanDeath Rite of Tranquility]] at the slightest provocation, even on mages that have passed their Harrowings, which is explicitly forbidden by Chantry Law. One such instance described in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' was using the Rite on a mage who was having love letters passed between himself and a Templar lover using another Templar as a willing intermediary. The charge was "corrupting the moral integrity of a Templar." Cullen then says that that was ''[[UpToEleven not]]'' Meredith's most egregious abuse of the Rite. [[spoiler:This was all years ''before'' she got hold of the [[ArtifactOfDoom Lyrium Idol]].]]

** After Hawke (mage or not) becomes the Champion, this appears to be why Merrill and Anders are left alone. In fact, should Hawke take Anders with them to the Gallows in Act III, he will chew out the Knight-Commander ''to her face'', causing her to [[TranquilFury glare quietly and then remark]] that Anders' friendship with the Champion protects him ''only so far''.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: [[spoiler:During the final battle]].
* EnemyMine: If you're playing a mage, she overlooks your status as an apostate ''without hesitation'' in order to help drive back [[spoiler:the Qunari]] in Act II. Should Mage Hawke get snippy with her in Act III, Meredith will not fail to remind Hawke that their clemency is only at her discretion and her leniency ''does'' have its limits.

* EvilIsPetty: [[spoiler:In the Templar campaign of "The Last Straw", when Meredith calls for the slaughter of mages who surrendered to the Champion, Silly!Hawke calls it out as being petty when s/he decides to spare them. Meredith angrily glares at Hawke while her men carry out Hawke's orders.]]

[[spoiler: With the Qunari invading]], she knows she has to put aside her antipathy for them, as the present crisis is more important. Once [[spoiler: the Qunari are defeated]], she goes right back to being antagonistic, until she needs something again.

She refuses to consider appointing a proper successor, claiming that as long as evil exists, Kirkwall needs its Templars more than it needs a new Viscount.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: {{Played with}}. Elthina is ''usually'' willing to listen to the various groups in a conflict from a rather neutral position... and that's basically it. Elthina does absolutely nothing to soothe tensions or pursue any kind of resolution to Kirkwall's problems, instead content to let them bubble beneath the surface, fostering more anger and resentment all around and pushing things closer to the boiling point. In addition, she often undermines the efforts of those who do seek some kind of resolution, including but not limited to having Hawke ''lie to the Divine'' about just how serious the Mage/Templar problems in Kirkwall are. [[RealityEnsues Unsurprisingly, the various political factions in Kirkwall get tired of Elthina doing absolutely nothing which causes the situation to spiral even out of Elthina's control]]. Twice. She does, however, bring up some valid points on why she doesn't explicitly take a side, as that would only increase tensions. At the same time, her claim that her power is less than it seems falls flat because the Chantry Hierarchy places Elthina as Meredith's direct superior, and there is no indication that Elthina is actually doing anything about Meredith's flagrant violations of Chantry law.
