Added DiffLines:

* ArcWords: From ''Leliana's Song'': "We are the same, you and I."
* AmbiguousDisorder: There's a strong case to be made for her having Narcissistic and/or Anti-Social Personality Disorder.


Added DiffLines:

** Doubles as DepravedBisexual, given her complete ruthlessness and lack of scruples.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: She spies on Leliana during her five years in the Chantry and then goes after her the moment she leaves because she figures the only thing Leliana could ''possibly'' be doing all that time is plotting for and then setting out to seek revenge on her, because it's what ''she'' would have done.
** ''Leliana's Song'' reveals that the whole reason Marjolaine betrayed her in the first place was because she was convinced Leliana would betray her first, because it's what ''she'' would have done, so she did it first.
** Marjolaine just cannot comprehend that Leliana was genuinely loyal to and in love with her in the past, sincere in her devotion to the Chantry, and earnest in stopping the Blight, because ''Marjolaine'' wouldn't be, in her shoes.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewYourself: Downplayed, but several times in ''Leliana's Song'' she emphasizes how exactly the same she and Leliana are, and always when she's the most purring and seductive. In the end, Leliana eventually has to tell her that she is not her mirror. It's implied that the only reason Marjolaine was ever attracted to Leliana was because she saw her as a reflection of herself.

* IDidWhatIHadToDo: How she regards [[spoiler: leaving the rest of her House to the mercy of the darkspawn while trying to reach the Anvil; Branka argues that most of those left were already dying or transforming due to being infected with the taint, and says that allowing the women to be turned into broodmothers would provide her an endless supply of darkspawn to lure into the thaig to hopefully overwhelm Caridin's traps]].



* AdmiringTheAbomination: Is implied to be in awe of the Archdemon's power when he felt it awake through the taint, and that he barely resisted the taint's compulsion to see the creature for himself.

** Without the Archdemon intentionally steering the horde to do so, it seems [[ContrivedCoincidence highly fortuitous]] otherwise that they just happened to break through to the surface in the middle of the Korcari Wilds, the perfect place to mass the horde for some time before being detected.

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Casteless Thug''': Jarvia was no Paragon, but she looked after her own.


Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandards: He was willing to allow [[spoiler: volunteers to become golems to turn the tide against the darkspawn, but when King Valtor, greedy for the advantage the golems would give him, started ordering casteless, criminals and his political enemies to be used, Caridin refused to go along with it]].


Added DiffLines:

* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Regards the creation of the Anvil and the Golems as this originally, as it was the middle of the First Blight, the Dwarves were rapidly losing ground to the darkspawn and the military value of the golems was too great to be passed up.


Added DiffLines:

* AdmiringTheAbomination: Is implied to be in awe of the Archdemon's power when he felt it awake through the taint, and that he barely resisted the taint's compulsion to see the creature for himself.
-->'''Ruck''': After the Dark Master awoke, he called his children and they all went...I wanted to go to, and gaze upon his beauty.


Added DiffLines:

* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Consuming the flesh of darkspawn to survive. The taint in his veins keeps the darkspawn from noticing, but at the cost of destroying his mind.


Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: It's not quite explained what he's doing alone in the Deep Roads, though his dialogue implies [[spoiler: he killed someone and fled into the tunnels to avoid being punished for murder]].


Added DiffLines:

* EvilPlan: Could also be considered a DealWithTheDevil: his arrangement with Loghain after Ostagar was that [[spoiler: he would convince the Circle to support Loghain's claim to the regency and plans for dealing with the Blight in exchange for Loghain ordering the Chantry to give the Circle greater freedoms. The plan was working for a while...until Wynne returned, gave her account of what ''really'' happened at Ostagar and the Circle decided, after hearing Uldred's utter failure to provide a decent explanation for Loghain's actions, that they didn't want to support a man being openly accused of regicide and treason]].
