* BrokenPedestal: Let's just say that by the time you actually meet her, you'll find yourself wondering why the dwarves revere her as a Paragon.

* BrokenPedestal: Let's just say that by the time you actually meet her, you'll find yourself wondering why the dwarves revere her as a Paragon. [[spoiler:If she survives, then either Harrowmont or Bhelen will go to war with her over different reasons in the epilogue and one dwarf in ''Inquisition'' (roughly ten years after the events in ''Origins'') refers to her as "the cracked Paragon".]]


Added DiffLines:

* MadScientist: ''Oh hell yes''. At first, she was just an eccentric smith and inventor, but then her desire to recover the lost craft of creating golems drove her mad. To the point, [[spoiler:she deliberately allowed her entire female retinue to be infected so that their Darkspawn progeny would provide her with a limitless supply of test subjects]].

Added DiffLines:

* DrivenToSuicide: If the Warden sides with her against Caridin, they can then persuade her to see reason at long last and destroy the Anvil, after which she kills herself by leaping into lava.


Added DiffLines:

* BodyHorror: [[spoiler:Has begun the horrific process of turning into a Broodmother - but she apparently avoids this fate by committing suicide.]]


Added DiffLines:

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Developer notes in the toolset reveal that she walks off the edge of a cliff after her last conversation with the Warden, killing herself. Considering the FateWorseThanDeath she would have suffered otherwise, this is probably a good thing.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CainAndAbel: Shades of this between him and Trian, though '''far''' more so with a Dwarf Noble PC. Though, if his sibling later makes him king of Orzammar, their relationship is mended somewhat, and the sequels reveal that the two have made peace with each other. In ''Inquisition'', he adamantly refuses to give up searching for his sibling (who is currently MIA), even though the Assembly wishes to declare him/her dead.

* HiddenDepths: . His journal reveals that he greatly respects Gorim for his UndyingLoyalty to the family, and mentions caring about keeping the relations between houses strong. He doesn't seem to quite get why Jaylia Helmi wants to be courted when he considers their marriage a foregone conclusion, but he conscientiously notes her favorite color.

* 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.
