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

* 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]].

** While it's up to the player to establish what the dwarf noble PC's relationship with their second is like (lovers, friends, master and servant), Gorim's loyalty to his Lord/Lady Aeducan will be one of his defining traits throughout the origin sequence. [[spoiler:He's so loyal, in fact, that it is neatly and efficiently used after Trian's murder to condemn him via guilt by association. "Your loyalty makes you a useless witness, Ser Gorim." However, he's not loyal enough to stay faithful to the female PC he's in love with - although in his defense, he had no way of knowing that the Warden was still alive.]]

* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:After the Dwarf Commoner origin story, she gives birth to Bhelen's son Endrin and becomes an official royal concubine. Given that Bhelen does apparently actually love her, she's as close to being queen as anyone in Orzammar can get. According to the town criers he intends to marry her as well and in Inquisition, it's revealed that he actually does.]]

* {{Gayngster}}: If the PC is a female Warden of any race, Jarvia specifically tells her goons to kill the entire party, "but leave the pretty one - I have plans for her." (The male Warden is "the mouthy one.")

Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: In the very early years of Endrin's rule, Lord Andvar Tethras was found guilty of fixing the Provings. Endrin responded by exiling not just Andvar, not just the Tethras family, but ''everyone connected to House Tethras'', right down to the servants. Literally hundreds of dwarves were exiled.


* PyrrhicVictory: If the Dwarf Noble decides to make him King. Bhelen has his eldest brother murdered, (supposedly) has his father poisoned, and gets his remaining sibling exiled, all to claim the throne for himself. Unfortunately, his exiled sibling comes back as a Grey Warden, ''still'' commands respect from the people of Orzammar and, instead of getting revenge, is ultimately the person to whom [[CruelMercy Bhelen owes his throne]]. Even worse, while Bhelen gets to be King, his [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter sibling]] ends up being declared a ''[[TheAce Paragon]]''.

* NotMeThisTime: If confronted about it by a dwarven noble Warden, he denies having poisoned their father; whether or not he's being honest is anyone's guess, though Harrowmon claims that he made sure Bhelen wouldn't have had the chance to poison Endrin.

Added DiffLines:

* TheUnfavorite: More subtle than most examples, but still there. It also seems to bother him more than he lets on.


* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: If the Dwarf Noble PC is female, she can have a conversation with Bhelen in which he affectionately refers to her as "my favorite sister." She is, of course, his ''only'' sister. (It makes a little more sense when the PC is male and therefore "my favorite brother.")

(It makes a little more sense when the PC is male and therefore "my favorite brother.")")This could also be interpreted as a joke between them, the same way that a dad might tell his only son that he's "His favorite son," or a child might tell their mother "You're my favorite mom."


* WellIntentionedExtremist: He is polite, honorable, friendly, loyal, and trustworthy. And he is so prejudiced against the casteless you couldn't even call him a NobleBigotWithABadge.


* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Her seeking of the Anvil of the Void is to ensure the dwarves can build an army to wage war against the darkspawn, retake territory, and rebuild their empire. The way she sees it, no price is too high for that, even mutating her female relatives into Broodmothers

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Implied to be one of the reasons she married Oghren.
** ArrangedMarriage: ''World of Thedas'' volume 2 states that it was actually this.

* HonorBeforeReason: He follows Orzammar's laws and traditions to the letter. [[spoiler:This is why he doesn't dare resist if King Bhelen orders him executed.]] [[spoiler:It is also the main reason why he turns out to be an absolutely disastrous king for the dwarves.]]



* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:If the player supports him, he will happily accept a male Dwarf Noble's illegitimate son into his house. Unlike Bhelen, he never says a single disrespectful word about the child or his casteless mother, despite his distaste for the casteless in general.]]



* SlaveToPR: Harrowmont toes the line with being a Tradionalist, which makes him more popular with his fellow nobles than a radical former like Bhelen.

* DeadGuyJunior: The male Dwarf Noble can potentially father a son with one of two casteless women during the origin story. Upon his return from exile, he gets to meet said son and choose his name; one of the options available is to name him Endrin. Similarly, Bhelen's child with [[spoiler: Rica Brosca]] is mentioned to have been named Endrin as well.

If he instead allows the mother of his child to choose his name, she will automatically choose Endrin, remarking that the child greatly resembles his grandfather. Similarly, Bhelen's child with [[spoiler: Rica Brosca]] is mentioned to have been named Endrin as well.


Added DiffLines:

* GenerationXerox: His grandson through a Dwarf Noble Warden is said to greatly resemble him, and can even be named after him.

Added DiffLines:

* ArrangedMarriage: According to his journal, he was planning to arrange one between himself and one of Lady Helmi's daughters once he became king.
