* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:In the aftermath of the quest "Here Lies The Abyss" in Dragon Age Inquisition, the Wardens in southern Thedas have this realization: their extremist mentality (IE: going straight to the most extreme solution instead of escalating) nearly led them to aiding one of the very men that precipitated the Blight in the first place.]]

* IDidWhatIHadToDo: The Templars are willing to go to great extremes in their mission to protect the public from magic. The Right of Annulment is the most obvious example. If a Circle appears to be lost to demons or blood magic, the Templars are authorized to indiscriminately kill every mage within, [[ShootTheDog including women and children]]. Though this is meant to be an [[GodzillaThreshold absolute last resort]] to prevent the possible escape of even one abomination.

* ScrewTheRulesItsTheApocalypse: When a Blight happens, the carte blanche authorities of the Wardens are emphasized, as they have the best strategies to combat darkspawn and the only means to permanently destroy an Archdemon.

** The creation of the Circles of Magi, while originally meant to be places to protect and teach Mages, have devolved into draconian prisons over the course of nine centuries. The granting of the [[KillEmAll Right of Annulment]] and the abuse of [[MindRape Rite of Tranquility]] has made the relationship between Mages and the Chantry more volatile. Topping it off is the Chantry's propensity to [[OrwellianEditor erase]] the valor and deeds of mages from history, which is likely only scratched on the surface by the findings of the Second Inquisition.

* BadassBisexual: It is considered favorable for Crows to be willing to seduce members of both sexes, as it potentially makes their assassinations easier. [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Zevran]] takes this for [[DepravedBisexual all its worth]] and runs to hell and back with it.

An organization of servants, slaves, lower-class criminals, and other peasants who take "requests" from the downtrodden who want abusive nobles to get what's coming to them. And what's coming to them might be as harmless as a PieInTheFace or as harsh as a brutal death.

* TheDreaded: Feared by any darkspawn who are intelligent enough to understand ''the concept of fear''. Even '''[[MadGod the archdemons]]''' are terrified of them, so much so that [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy they seem to make any and all wardens priority targets during a blight]]. To a much lesser extent, the rest of Thedas is generally smart enough not to screw with the wardens, either.

* Expy: Of, unsurprisingly, the Night's Watch from A Song of Ice And Fire. Both Orders were established in a time of great darkness when all humanity was threatened with extinction by an eldritch evil (The First Blight and the Long Night, respectively). Both Orders are sworn not to take any part in the politics of the kingdoms they defend and were highly respected in the past, but have declined seemingly in power and prestige as the evil they were created to fight (the darkspawn for the Wardens, the Others for the Watch) has faded from public view and become viewed as mythological, and the organisations themselves have become viewed at best as a relic of a dark period in history best left forgotten, and at worst as a dumping ground for criminals and other societal rejects.

* GargleBlaster: All gray wardens have their own personal "Conscription Ale" bottle, which contains a unique melange of any manner of liquors they get ahold of. Their "vintage" isn't a year, but the name of the warden who owns it. The label often also contains a pithy phrase of some sort.
