* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler:The FinalBattle consists of her versus your ''entire team'', plus Cullen and (potentially) Donnic, Nathaniel, and Zevran, and for all intents and purposes she is ''winning''. The only reason she actually goes down is because she overdoses on the power from her Lyrium sword, leaving her TakenForGranite.]]



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Her first introduction to Hawke features her taking out a Qunari Saarabas in the most BadAss fashion.

* {{Badass}}: If you pay attention in the extended version of the "Destiny" trailer, you can see that the staircase behind the Arishok is literally carpeted with all the guards that he had to fight through, apparently alone and without suffering so much as a scratch.



* UnderestimatingBadassery: Kirkwall is full of {{Badass}}es, on both sides of the field, but the Arishok couldn't care less about anybody who isn't Hawke. This is made abundantly clear when [[DaChief Aveline]], a woman hardcore enough to beat darkspawn to death with her ''bare hands'', confronts him about [[spoiler:the elven fugitives]]; he all but ignores her and focuses on talking to Hawke instead.

* {{Badass}}: As the situation in Kirkwall has deteriorated, by Act III, Donnic's patrols are frequently ambushed, leaving him fighting for his life at least ''twice'' a week! Donnic then mentions that he actually ''asked'' for the most dangerous patrols, since as one of the most capable fighters, they'd lose a lot more guards if he ''wasn't'' there!
** BadassNormal: As normal as the setting gets; no magic, no legendary weapons and armor, only as much martial training as Aveline introduces to the guard, and faces throngs of gangsters on what he considers to be a good day. He gets a DistressedDude moment when Aveline rescues him in Act I, but after that he's a dedicated asskicker.
** [[spoiler:He helps out in the FinalBattle, if Aveline is in your active party.]]

* PetTheDog: Siding with Meredith and working with her in Act III shows a human side to her. If [[AManIsNotAVirgin Emile de Launcet]] is convinced to surrender without incident, she thinks of executing him, but his father pleads that he was merely an idiot. Hawke can comment that he said he was a blood mage just to impress girls. Meredith laughs, and simply imprisons him.

** And for all her crackdowns, not only did the Templars completely fail to stop [[spoiler:Quentin]], in one of the companion quests a ''[[spoiler:literal Tevinter magister]]'' can waltz in and out of Kirkwall with impunity.

-->'''Varric''': I had a feeling when we first met you weren't the grateful type.

* CynicismCatalyst: Seeing the Chantry violate its own laws so blatantly further motivates Anders to tear down the Circle.



* StraightGay: Or maybe BiTheWay. He shows zero stereotypical traits and was [[spoiler:romantically involved with Anders in the past]].

* StupidSacrifice: [[spoiler:Going OneWingedAngel in the Mage path just meant the Champion had to waste time killing him, and strengthened Meredith's argument. Since until that moment the battle consisted entirely of Templar mooks charging into a narrow kill zone to be effortlessly slaughtered by spells, he ends up doing far more damage to his own side than the Templars had and snatches a crushing defeat from the jaws of almost certain victory.]]

* MindRape: Is not above using the Rite of Tranquility on mages that have passed their Harrowing, especially on young females. This is supposed to be illegal except in extreme circumstances (Uldred comes to mind), and the Chantry is definitely not in favor of the Templars abusing their power that way.
