* NoPronunciationGuide: His name is pronounced ''"Tal-is-een"'' by the characters, but it should be pronounced ''"Tal-ee-eh-sin."'' Taliesin himself is guilty of this, as he pronounces Zevran's name by placing emphasis on ''"Zev"'' rather than the ''"ran"'' as it should be.

* BullyingADragon: Defied; He flat out admits to the Warden that, even if he ''did'' believe Loghain's story, he would still not bother trying to arrest him/her, seeing how he has no chance and his men are incompetent cowards. When he witnesses mercenaries actually attempting to assault the Warden, he is amazed by their idiocy.

* GenreSavvy: He is both aware of the fact that he is SurroundedByIdiots and of the Warden being a OneManArmy, and as such know better than to provoke him/her.



* GenreSavvy: He gives a pretty good speech about how YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle if you announce your intention to take over the Carta after killing Beraht, pointing out that he has a powerful family and many connections, as well as the fact that his death left a power vacuum they couldn't possibly fill.



* CuriosityIsACrapshoot: He's downright suicidal, something the PC does naturally get plenty of chances to lampshade along with his lack of GenreSavvy.
