** Loghain Mac Tir is similarly trained in these talents, [[spoiler:and ultimately serves a replacement for Alistair in the party, if you should choose to spare his life]]. He is one of Ferelden's [[TheStrategist most skilled generals]], and appointed as one of Ferelden's only two teyrns, making him a commoner raised to nobility. Far less heroic than Alistair, [[spoiler:he makes numerous morally questionable choices, sells elves into slavery in order to evacuate them and fund the army, and ultimately hunts down the Grey Wardens in an effort to blame his retreat at Ostagar on them]]. Nevertheless, he is a man of honour, and willing to sacrifice his life for his duty at the end of the game if spared.

She becomes a [[CityGuards guardsman]], becomes [[spoiler:guard captain]] by mid-way through the first Act or before the second one (depending on if her Act 1 sidequest is done), and is as such focused on law and order. She is also a {{Workaholic}} and MarriedToTheJob. The only sword-and-shield party member in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', she has a personal tree that can be levelled, raising her tanking abilities and turning her from "guardsman" to "indestructible moving wall".

** Cassandra also fights with sword and shield (or shield and other one-handed weapon) and uses the Templar specialization. As a Seeker of Truth, part of her job is to oversee the military branch of the Chantry (the primary in-game religion) and protect the innocent from harm. She takes her duties very seriously.
** Cullen usually functions as an advisor during ''Inquisition''. However, there are a few times during the game when he takes an active role in the fighting, and whenever he does, he uses a sword and shield. The Iron Bull may comment, in dialogue with the Herald, that he could identify Cullen as a former Templar because of the specific way he holds his shield. Similarly to [[spoiler:Blackwall]], he is working to atone for prior misdeeds from his Templar days, and considers protecting those weaker than himself and guiding those of lower rank to be an intrinsic part of this.
