** The Architect and the Warden's experimentation with the Taint are also highly similar. [[spoiler: The Grey Wardens are specialized ghouls who retained their humanity (for 30 years at least), after consumption of specially prepared Darkspawn blood. The Disciples meanwhile are specialized Darkspawn with their connection to the Old Gods severed, [[HumanityEnsues granting them sentience]], after consumption of Grey Warden blood]].

* TheFogOfAges: [[spoiler: If he really was an original Magister, then he's either lying about his past or the centuries of wandering have eaten away at his memory.]]



* WasOnceAMan: According to [[http://shallowgraves.org/chatting-with-david-gaider-part-2-of-3-inside-inquisition-and-the-dragon-age-universe/ David Gaider]], [[spoiler:the Architect is actually a former Tevinter Magister-turned-Darkspawn similar to Corypheus. His appearance in Awakening has a few elements closely akin to Corypheus: his frilly ShouldersOfDoom and his mutilated face with bits of other things fused into it.]].

* FaceHeelTurn: From the perspective of the Grey Wardens, she does this when she leaves the order to willingly work with a darkspawn.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: She was already one as a Grey Warden, but she becomes even more extreme by deciding to work with darkspawn.

The Disciples are darkspawn, mainly Hurlocks, that have shown a keen cunning and intellect all but unheard of in regards to darkspawn. They are the only darkspawn that can speak intelligibly to non-darkspawn, hold independent identities and free will, and choose their own names. All are voiced by Creator/MarkMeer.

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Sometime after the events of ''The Calling'', he discovered that Grey Warden blood can be used to sever the darkspawn's connection to the Old Gods, ending the Blights without killing as many people as he would have with his previous plan. He's still as morally ambiguous as ever, though.]]

* NonMaliciousMonster: Sort of. Compared to the other darkspawn he's practically a saint, and he doesn't ''seem'' to possess any genuine maliciousness, but that doesn't mean he can't cause problems accidentally or as a result of his plans to 'save' Ferelden. [[spoiler:Just ask Urthemiel.]]

* TheRainman: From his perspective at least. He compares his difference to other darkspawn with what a mentally-handicapped person with unusual skills is to other races, or what a mage is to a normal human. By human standards, he's not handicapped at all, but it's clear that [[LonersAreFreaks his alienation from the rest of his race bothers him]].

* {{Ubermensch}}: Wants to free his fellow darkspawn from the song of the Old Ones.
* TheUnfettered: A strange variant. Most Unfettered are aware of moral limits and ignore them; he is unaware and doesn't understand when they're pointed out. His first plan for ending the Blights involved [[spoiler: inflicting the Taint on all of Thedas, killing who knows how many of them.]] Good thing he discovered how to make other darkspawn like him.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: His only goal is to find a way to end the conflict between the darkspawn and the rest of the world in a way that allows both sides to coexist. However, a tenuous grasp on [[BlueAndOrangeMorality concepts like morality]] and a lack of understanding of basic human nature lead him to employ rather monstrous methods, less out of ruthlessness and more out of simply not understanding how horrifying they are to others.

* GoneHorriblyRight: Giving free will to the darkspawn also allows them to rebel against him and become even nastier, just because that's what they want to do with their free will.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Subverted. While the Architect isn't actively malevolent, his actions spurred the events of both ''Awakening'' and ''Origins'' at large. [[spoiler:He subjected the Fifth Archdemon to his inverse Joining ritual in an attempt to destroy the Old Gods' control over the darkspawn. He only succeeded in starting the Fifth Blight, resulting in the events of ''Origins''. All of the death, chaos and hate that erupted from it is on the Architect's hands. It's also possible that he is one of the original Magisters who brought the Blight to Thedas in the first place.]]

A Darkspawn emissary who wants to end conflict between the darkspawn and other races. He first appeared in ''The Calling'' and reappears in ''Awakening''. He is very polite, but does not understand the concept of morality.
