A minor character and Tal'Vashoth, Tal-Vashoth, Maraas leaves the Qun to take up life as a mercenary.

* DefectorFromDecadence: Leaves the Tal'Vashoth raiders because he doesn't want to steal or murder from caravans, and becomes a mercenary. In his words, [[BlueAndOrangeMorality this makes him worse]] than the Tal'Vashoth; he's selling his sword and his honor for coin. -->'''Maraas:''' I did not like my "role," so I left the Qun. I did not wish to be a murdering thief, so I left the Tal'Vashoth to warn their... victims. ''You'' are no victim. * HiredGuns: Tal'Vashoth tend to be this, since the stigma surrounding Qunari and their own lack of training for anything else [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer leaves them with little choice]]. Maraas got tired of that as well. * MeaningfulName: After leaving the Tal'Vashoth, he chose to name himself Maraas, making him the first kossith encountered to explicitly have a name rather than just a rank/role. ''Maraas'' means "Nothing" in the Qunari language, referring to how he has no role or purpose beyond that which he chooses.

* FromACertainPointOfView / MetaphoricallyTrue: At the beginning of Act II, it's mentioned that the Qunari are supposedly waiting for a second ship before they will return home. The could be considered a truthful statement, since we later learn [[spoiler:they're looking for the stolen Tome of Koslun, which was aboard the ''Siren's Call'' when it was sunk during the same storm that stranded the Qunari. In other words, they're waiting ''to find'' the second ship that arrived ''with'' them, in the hopes of retrieving its precious cargo]].

* OhCrap: The look on her face when after [[spoiler: giving Fenris genuine information about his sister, his tattoos glow blue as she realises he knows she's telling the truth and ''still'' intends to kill her anyway]].

Added DiffLines:
* HappinessInSlavery: Indicates that [[spoiler: Fenris accepting the lyrium markings in exchange for her and their mother's freedom didn't do her any favours]]. -->'''Varania''': ''[To Fenris]'' Freedom was no boon. I look at you and I think ''you'' got the better end of the bargain.

Added DiffLines:
* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: Varric directly names this trope in ''Dragon Age: Inquisition'' in relation to the Arishok. Since his actions weren't officially sanctioned and the Qunari didn't want to suffer an Exalted March in retaliation, when they came to retrieve any surviving forces, the Qunari said this in relation to the whole affair. According to Varric, that was the Qunari's attempt at an apology.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Easily the strongest of the Qunari. As one can only ascend into higher ranks in Qunari society by being better at one's role, the Arishok is essentially the strongest Qunari in the world.
