pretty sure he was still going to have jowan executed before he'd actually hurt anyone, so...
* CoolOldGuy: He's very kind and friendly to his apprentices.

* CoolOldGuy: He's very kind and friendly to his apprentices.apprentices, although he has a ruthless side.

* JerkassHasAPoint: He behaves rather unlikable toward mages in the Mage Origins, and attempts to have Jowan made a Tranquil due to believing he is a Blood Mage; essentially, he is the main reason players will usually choose to help Jowan escape. Turns out Jowan ''is'' a Blood Mage, so his accusations were at least founded

** While he's considered permissive by other Templars, that's only relative to them. He still orders Jowan made Tranquil for suspected blood magic, and upgrades that to execution when he tries to escape. He also tacitly agrees with Sten's views on how Qunari treat mages.

* VillainHasAPoint: At Ostagar, he suggests that the contingent of Mages at Ostagar use their offensive magic to combat the darkspawn and help support the troops. Despite this being a reasonable suggestion and one even shared by Duncan in the Mage Origin, he's quickly silenced by the Revered Mother of the Chantry, who ''refuses'' to [[HonorBeforeReason trust soldiers' lives to magic]].

Had circumstances been different, it seems entirely possible that she, rather than a City Elf protagonist, could have been recruited as a Grey Warden and done well in her own right.

* TheChessmaster: ** Codex entries suggest he deliberately manipulates his students in order to expose "deviant traits" early on. ** Should you tell him about Jowan's plan, he sets things up so that Lily will also be incriminated, both to remind the Chantry of their fallibility and ensure Jowan doesn't suffer alone. If you call this ruthless, he just reminds you who his opposite numbers are.

* KnightTemplar: [[spoiler:Subverted, as until the Grey Warden arrives, what was going on in the Circle tower more than justifies his actions. He's willing to let the Warden take a shot at possibly finding survivors inside the tower, though he thinks it's a suicide run. Also, he's willing to draw back his order to exterminate the Circle of Magi once the Grey Warden successfully neutralizes the threat and saves Irving.]]
