Hawke's dialogue contains a list of the conversations that Hawke shares with his/her companions, in which they discuss each other's backgrounds, and their reactions to the game's events. Hawke's dialogue is unique in that it can change based on what point in the game it is, friendship or rivalry, personality and whether or not Hawke is in an active romance with that character. Hawke does not participate in most of the party banter in Dragon Age II, but does so in subsequent DLC.

Group Dialogue Edit

These can contain conversations between two or more companions in which Hawke also speaks.

Hawke/Isabela/Companion Edit

ACT I

  • Anders: I keep thinking I know you from somewhere...
  • Isabela: You're Fereldan, right? Ever spend time at the Pearl?
  • Anders: That's it!
  • Anders: You used to really like that girl with the griffin tattoos, right? What was her name?
  • Isabela: The Lay Warden?
  • Anders: That's right! I think you were there the night I—
  • Isabela: Oh! Were you the runaway mage who could do that electricity thing? That was nice...
  • Hawke: Please stop talking. Now.
───────

During The Long Road. Isabela must be in the party when you speak to Aveline after posting the duty roster, and choose, "You've been alone this long?"

  • Hawke: So you've been by yourself since we came to Kirkwall?
  • Isabela: Wait, you've gone four years without? You must creak like a rusty hinge.
  • Aveline: Many people have their lives because of me.
  • Isabela: But poor you, no life of your own.
  • Aveline: We both place others above ourselves. I happen to do it clothed.

(Isabela approaches Aveline)

  • Isabela: You're splitting hairs, but wishing someone would split yours.
  • Aveline: I've had enough of your loose lips. Like many, I'm sure.

(they get in each other's face)

  • Isabela: Oh, touché. Prig!
  • Aveline: Slattern!

(Hawke steps in)

  • Hawke: If I might put this back on track.
───────
  • Isabela: So, Donnic was in the Rose.
  • Aveline: He was not!
  • Isabela: Easy, big girl. He wasn't shopping for himself. You're lucky to have a man who wants to please you.
  • Isabela: But, maybe you could indulge him more. Are there areas of intimacy you haven't explored?
  • Aveline: Why? Why do you give me these doubts!
  • Isabela: Aveline. If you shove your thumb up his ass, I win.

The last line depends on who else is in the party:

  • Anders: Just... no.
  • Fenris: (laughs)
  • Merrill: Ew!
  • Varric: Ah, that old chestnut.
  • Sebastian: Ugh. Maker.
  • Hawke: (Coughs)
───────

During Champions and Captains, and you choose "How was the honeymoon?"

  • Hawke: You never said how your three weeks in Orlais went.
  • Aveline: You're right. I didn't.
  • Isabela: Ohh. Shivery.
───────

If Hawke hasn't accepted Isabela's love yet

  • Merrill: I think Hawke likes you, Isabela.
  • Isabela: You think so, do you?
  • Merrill: S/he looks at you all the time, and then s/he looks embarrassed and pretends s/he's busy with something else.
  • Hawke: I can hear you, you know.
  • Merrill: (Giggles) See?
  • Isabela: Hmm. I'll have to think about that...
───────

ACT I

  • Varric: I shit you not, Rivaini, it was this big.
  • Isabela: There's no way. Impossible! I've had hundreds of those in my hands, and they're never that size.
  • Varric: Would I lie about something so critical?

Next line is dependent on third party member

  • Anders: I can't stand it anymore—what are you two talking about?
  • Aveline: I'm afraid to ask, but... what are you two going on about?
  • Carver: What is wrong with you two? Can't you ever have a conversation that isn't dirty?
  • Hawke: What are you two talking about?
  • Varric: We're discussing knives, of course. Well, daggers, technically. I never remember the difference.
  • Varric: Why? What did you think we were talking about?
───────
  • Zevran: My dear Isabela, it has been a delight to see you again. You travel in fine company.
  • Isabela: That's it? You're leaving? What about sex?

If in a romance with Isabela

  • Zevran: *laughs* Still blunt as a dwarven hammer, hmmm? Well, why not!
  • Hawke: Um, hello? I'm standing right here.
  • Isabela: What? You can come too.
  • Zevran: Indeed! The more the merrier!
  • Hawke: Let's find someplace quieter.

If not in a romance with Isabela

  • Zevran: Ah, Isabela. I did so miss you.
  • Isabela: That's because you're a piss-poor shot. Thankfully, you have other uses.

The last line depends on party members:

  • Aveline: I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.
  • Merrill: Ew.
  • Anders: Ha!
  • Fenris: Are we sure he was part of a guild of assassins?
  • Varric: That girl has curious standards.

Hawke/Aveline/Companion Edit

When talking to Aveline during A Friend in the Guard and ask, "Do you miss being a soldier?"

  • Hawke: This must be a very different pace from serving King Cailan.
  • Aveline: It's just one more change, though. The real end for me was Ostagar.
  • Aveline: What about you Carver? You were there. Do you feel something similar?
  • Carver: No.
  • Aveline: All right, then.
  • Aveline: Bit of a tit, your brother.
───────

During The Long Road (Note: Fenris's dialogue contributions will be trumped by those of Isabela and Varric)
In Aveline's office, part 3

  • Aveline: (Sighs) All right, I can fix this. I need... I need three goats and a sheaf of wheat. You'll take them to his mother. (To Hawke)

Hawke raises a very perplexed eyebrow.

  • Aveline: It's a dowry tradition. Maybe it will smooth the process.
  • Fenris: A dowry? Then... this isn't about accusations.
  • Aveline: No, it's not.
  • Fenris: She's courting the man. With a fear reserved for dragons.

Part of same conversation, when Hawke asks about Aveline's difficulty with expressing her affections. Must have active romance with Fenris and not currently involved with someone else.

  • Aveline: What about you and Fenris? How do you deal with the danger of your lives?
(If Fenris is in party) Fenris appears to look at Hawke, who pauses and glances down before answering.
(If Fenris is not in party) Hawke uses slightly lighter tone without pausing.
  • Hawke: Maybe we're not the best example.

Ending part of same conversation, when Hawke decides to continue helping Aveline but asks her what she wants to do instead of providing a direct solution

  • Aveline: I'm the captain. He's my guardsman. I can't get past that.
  • Fenris: If the existing relationship prevents a new one, go somewhere you are equal.
  • Aveline: What, just... go out somewhere? Like it's that easy?

...Which eventually leads to another scene in the Hanged Man, after Aveline's unsuccessful "date", as interjection between Hawke's lines:

  • Fenris: Again, she deflects.
  • Aveline: I will not risk...
  • Fenris: You're squandering something you don't understand.
  • Hawke: You can't ignore advice from such a stable source. (no sarcasm intended)

Hawke/Fenris/Companion Edit

If Hawke romanced Fenris and with Fenris in the party

  • Anders: I know it isn't my place to criticize, but...
  • Anders: Are you sure about Fenris?
  • Anders: He seems less a man to me than a wild dog.
  • Hawke: You just don't know him.
  • Anders: I know as much as I'm ever likely to.
  • Fenris: That's right, mage.
  • Anders: He has let one bad experience color his whole world. Surely you want someone more open-minded?
  • Fenris: A mage and a hypocrite. What company you keep.
───────
  • Carver: You know, Fenris, I have a tattoo.
  • Fenris: You have a what?
  • Carver: A tattoo. A lot of us got them before Ostagar. It's a Mabari. For strength.
  • Fenris: Does it curse you with the ability to reach into a man and tear out his insides?
  • Carver: Uh. I can make it bark.
  • Fenris: Please don't.

(Next line depends on the third companion present)

  • Anders: Yes, refrain.
  • Aveline: Agreed.
  • Isabela: Rather see it wag.
  • Merrill: That's... ew.
  • Varric: Seconded.
  • Hawke: (Sighs)

Hawke & Companion Dialogue Edit

Hawke and Anders Edit

Act I During Tranquility

  • Anders: "I have made this place a sanctum of healing and salvation! Why do you threaten it?"

(if you choose the Diplomatic choice: "I mean no harm.")

  • Hawke: "I'm just here to talk."
  • Varric (if in the party): "We're interested in getting into the Deep Roads. Rumor has it you use to be with the Grey Wardens.

(Alternatively, if you choose the Humorous choice: "Are you the Grey Warden?")

  • Hawke: "Strange occupation for a Warden. Aren't you more about taint and death, not healing and salvation?"

(Alternatively, if you choose the Blunt choice: "I'm just here for information.")

  • Hawke: "I want to know about the Deep Roads."

(regardless, the conversation continues as follows)

  • Anders: "Did the Wardens send you to bring me back? I'm not going. Those bastards made me give up my cat."
  • Anders: "Poor Ser Pounce-a-lot. He hated the Deep Roads."

(if you ask "Ser Pounce-a-lot?")

  • Hawke: "You had a cat named Ser Pounce-a-lot? In the Deep Roads?"
  • Anders: "He was a gift. A noble beast."
  • Anders: "Almost got ripped in half by a genlock once. He swatted the bugger on the nose. Drew blood, too."
  • Anders: "The blighted Warden said he "made me too soft." I had to give him to a friend in Amaranthine."

(if you ask "What are you doing here?")

  • Hawke: "So you came to Kirkwall just to escape the Wardens?"
  • Anders: "You say that like it's a small thing."
  • Anders: "Yes, I'm here because there's no Warden outpost, no darkspawn, and a whole host of refugees to blend in with."
  • Anders: "And some reasons of my own."

(if you ask "Can people leave the Wardens?")

  • Hawke: "I've always heard that joining the Wardens was for life."
  • Anders: "That's only partly true. The "hopelessly tainted by the darkspawn" and "plagued by nightmares about the Archdemon" parts...don't go away."
  • Anders: "But it turns out if you hide well, you don't have to wear the uniform or go to the parties."

(if you choose "I want your help.")

  • Hawke: "I'm part of an expedition into the Deep Roads. Any information you have could save people's lives."
  • Anders: "I will die a happy man if I never have to think about the blighted Deep Roads again. I'm not about to-"

(Alternatively, if you choose "Let me buy your information")

  • Hawke: "I'm part of an expedition into the Deep Roads, and I'm willing to pay for an entrance."
  • Anders: "Hmph. If I wanted money, I've been going about it all wrong. You can't imagine what I've gone through to get here. I'm not about to-"

(Alternatively, if you choose "Tell me or else.")

  • Hawke: "I need to know how to get into the Deep Roads and you can tell me, willing or not."
  • Anders: "Don't threaten me, boy/little girl."
  • Anders: "You can't imagine what I've gone through to get here. I'm not about to-"

(regardless, the conversation will continue as follows)

  • Anders: "Although...a favor for a favor. Does that sound like a fair deal? You help me, I'll help you?"

(if you choose the Generous choice: "Yes")

  • Hawke: "Help my expedition reach the Deep Roads and I'll do whatever you need."
  • Anders: "You don't ask for my terms?...What if I were asking for the Knight-Commander's head on a spike?"
  • Hawke: "Is that what you ask?"
  • Anders: "You decide."

(Alternatively, if you choose the Humorous choice: "What's the favor?")

  • Hawke: "Let's be more specific. I don't do anything involving children or animals."

'(Alternatively, if you choose the Aggressive choice: "Forget it.")

  • Hawke: "We'll get to Deep Roads ourselves."
  • Anders: "...Wait!"

(regardless, the conversation will continue as follows)

  • Anders: "I have a Warden's map of the depths in this area. But there's a price."
  • Anders: "I came to Kirkwall to aid a friend. A mage; a prisoner in the wretched Gallows."
  • Anders: "The templars learned of my plans to free him. Help me bring him safely past them, and you shall have your maps."

(if you ask "Who is this mage?")

  • Hawke: "Tell me about your friend."
  • Anders: "...His name is Karl Thekla. He was sent here from Ferelden when Kirkwall's Circle required new talent. His last letter said the Knight-Commander was turning the Circle into a prison."
  • Anders: "Mages are locked in their cells, refused appearances at court, made Tranquil for the slightest crimes. I told him I would come."

(if you ask "The Circle, a prison?")

  • Hawke: "Are these accusations true?"
  • Anders: "Ask any mage in Kirkwall. Over a dozen were made Tranquil just this year."
  • Anders: "The more people you ask, the worse the rumors become."

(if you ask "How did the templars find out?")

  • Hawke: "What do the templars now of your plans?"
  • Anders: "I don't know. I had been exchanging letters with Karl through a maidservant in the Gallows."
  • Anders: "Then the letters...stopped coming."

(if you ask "What is your plan?")

  • Hawke: "How are you planning on breaking him out of the Gallows?"
  • Anders: "I'm hoping it won't come to that. I sent Karl a message to meet me in the Chantry tonight. Maker willing, he'll be there, alone."
  • Anders: "But if there are templars with him, I swear, I'll free him from them. Whatever the cost."

(if you choose the Generous choice: "I will help.")

  • Hawke: "You've convinced me. What's your plan?"

(Alternatively, if you choose the Humorous choice: "You want me to fight templars?")

  • Hawke: "Oh, that's all? I think I'd rather take my chances with the darkspawn."

(Alternatively, if you choose the Aggressive choice: "Show me the maps.")

  • Hawke: "I will not make a deal without a sight seen."
  • Anders: "It's all right here. But you don't get a page of it till Karl walks free."

(regardless, the conversation will continue with a variation of the following)

  • Anders: "I welcome your aid. I've already sent word for Karl to meet me in the Chantry tonight."
  • Anders: "Meet me there and, regardless of who is there with him, we all walk away free."

Hawke and Aveline Edit

During Blackpowder Courtesy, when you visit the Side Alley

  • Aveline: He's a good man. Trust that it's as bad as he says.
  • Hawke: How about we skip this one? Send your man instead? (Sarcastic Hawke)
  • Aveline: How about I shove a canary up your coal mine? Let's go.
───────

During Questioning Beliefs, after The Long Road, and choose, "You need my good humor"

  • Hawke: You don't want me as sour and dour as you. You need a counterpoint.
  • Aveline: I don't think I've asked to be the butt of your jokes.
  • Hawke: Donnic.

(pause)

  • Aveline: Okay, sometimes I have asked for it.

Hawke and Bethany Edit

During the quest The First Sacrifice, when saying you're interested in Jethann's services)

  • Bethany: Maker's breath! Can't you... do this when I'm not around?
  • Hawke: Run along and play, Bethany.
  • Bethany: This is not why we came to Kirkwall!

When saying you're interested in Jethann's services, but refuse after Bethany's complaint

  • Hawke: Fine. I'll do this some other day.
  • Bethany: It's too late. The images are already in my mind and they will never, ever go away.
───────

When giving the bones you found during The First Sacrifice to Emeric

  • Hawke: Recognize your mage?
  • Bethany: You're horrible!

Hawke and Fenris Edit

Fenris' responses when Hawke talks to him, if there is no other dialogue.

Neutral or Low Friendship/Rivalry (always available)

  • We should move on.
  • Hawke. (Rivalry only)

High Friendship

  • Always a pleasure.
  • Yes my friend?
  • Tell me, and it is done. (after completing Alone)
  • Whatever you need, I am ready to assist. (after completing Alone)

High Rivalry

  • What is it?
  • I stand ready. (after completing Alone)

Romance

  • I enjoy following you.
  • I remain at your side.
  • I am yours. (after completing his Act III Questioning Beliefs)
───────

ACT II
If Carver was lost in the Deep Roads

  • Fenris: Your brother seemed a fine young man. I am sorry for his loss.

After All That Remains

  • Fenris: I cannot imagine what it must be like to lose your family. Anything I could say would be insufficient. I'm sorry.
───────

Inside the Hawke Estate, only if Dog is present. (This conversation was not enabled until patch 1.03. Best triggered before activating romance with Fenris.)

  • Fenris: A fascinating breed. Such intelligence and strength.
  • Fenris: Do you ever wonder what he thinks about?
  • Hawke:
(Diplomatic) I'm not always sure I want to know.
(Humorous) He still thinks about dog things. Just with more clarity.
(Aggressive) Slaying his enemies, just like he's been bred to do.
  • Fenris: Are you aware that this breed originated in Tevinter?
  • Fenris: The magisters bred them. It's said the mabari defected during the Imperium's invasion of Ferelden.
  • Fenris: Merely a tale, but I rather like the idea they found the barbarians more... palatable than the mages.
  • Dog: (Happy bark!)
  • Fenris: Exactly so.
  • Fenris: Let's hope your hound doesn't take after his ancestors too strongly, hmm?
───────

During Offered and Lost

  • Fenris: So, on the word of a drunk, we intend to accuse the grand cleric of funding zealots?
  • Hawke: It's a careful chat about missing Qunari.
  • Fenris: Freedom was interesting while it lasted.

Hawke and Isabela Edit

During Fools Rush In

  • Hawke: "Stab first, ask questions later?"
  • Isabela: "Trust me, it's better this way."
───────

Act III During No Rest for the Wicked
Beginning of quest, while talking about how to fool Velasco

  • Hawke: "You haven't exactly thought this out, have you?"
  • Isabela: "I haven't exactly worked out all of the kinks. Step one, we find Castillon... step two, I don't know. Something exciting happens. Step three, profit. Any questions?" (Possibly a reference to the South Park episode, "Gnomes")

In the Blooming Rose, before pretending to hand Isabela over to trick Velasco

  • Isabela: Now, this needs to be convincing. And you'll need to get creative—call me names, even hit me.
  • Isabela: Stick with it, no matter what I do. Velasco's a clever son of a bitch. If you waver, he'll notice.

(Diplomatic choice) I'm not sure about this.

  • Hawke: I don't know if I can pull this off.
  • Isabela: Come on, haven't you ever wanted to slap me? Just a little?

If other party members present

  • Aveline: Absolutely.
  • Fenris: Yes.
  • Anders: Yes.
  • Varric: Yes.
  • Merrill: Yes... wait, what are we voting on?
  • Sebastian: Is that a trick question?
  • Isabela: I wasn't asking you people!
  • Varric: Face it. You set yourself up for that one.

OR (Humorous choice) You seem a little eager.

  • Hawke: I'm worried about you. You're enjoying this a little too much.
  • Isabela: I am, aren't I? (Giggles)

OR (Aggressive choice) This will be fun.

  • Hawke: I'll make it convincing, not to worry.
  • Isabela: Er... now you're making me nervous.
───────

If Hawke spent the night with Fenris, speak to her in The Hanged Man

  • Isabela: Speaking of romance... You and Fenris, eh? That taut, controlled body, brooding demeanor and intense gaze... I hear he still wears the shackles from his life in bondage...under his clothes. You know what they say about men like that, don't you?
  • Hawke: (Sighs) I'm going to regret asking you to continue, aren't I?
  • Isabela: He can't find a saw. (Laughs) I had you there! You thought I was going to say something dirty! (Laughs)

OR

  • Hawke: I haven't seen any shackles. You're just making things up.
  • Isabela: Oh. But... I had this joke lined up.
  • Isabela: You're no fun.

OR

  • Hawke: Keep it to yourself, Isabela.
  • Isabela: You're no fun.
───────

If Hawke romanced Merrill, speak to her in The Hanged Man

  • Isabela: Speaking of romance...
  • Isabela: You're interested in Merrill, aren't you?
  • Hawke: I have feelings for her/I'm that obvious, am I?
  • Isabela: Well, that's good. She always seemed a little lonely.
  • Isabela: I get the feeling the girl's messing in something big and dangerous.
  • Isabela: Look out for her, will you? Make sure she doesn't hurt herself.
  • Isabela: Oh, and if you do anything nasty to her, I'll cut off your balls. (male Hawke)
───────

If Hawke has slept with Isabela and let her take the ship:

  • Hawke: "So when do I get the grand tour?"
  • Isabela: "Haven't you already - Oh, you mean the ship."
───────

When entering the Blooming Rose for the first time

  • Isabela: "The difference between whores and courtesans is...well, they have nicer shoes."
  • Hawke: "I don't think anyone's looking at their shoes."
───────

After the events of All That Remains and if you romanced Isabela

  • Isabela: "I... uh. I feel I should say... something."
  • Hawke: "I know you're not good at... emotional stuff."
  • Isabela: "At least your mother loved you. Not everyone can say that."
  • Hawke: "Mother was all I had left."
  • Isabela: "You don't really think that, do you?"
  • Isabela: "Family's not just the people you're related to by blood. There are other people who care about you."
  • Isabela: "Like... Aveline."

Hawke and Merrill Edit

While Hawke is exploring/looking at things in the estate...

  • I think Merrill named this falcon sculpture Finnegan. No, wait... that's wrong. Finnegan's on the north face. This one's Messerre Pointy-Face.
  • "I came in and watered your plants! Your friend, Merrill." Well, that was nice of her.

If in a romance with Merrill:

  • The only thing Merrill's moved in. Maybe she doesn't feel this is her home yet.
  • Orana's a patient music teacher, but Merrill should really just stick to magic. (If Orana serves at the estate)
  • Handprints? Has someone been swinging on the chandelier? Merrill... (If not romancing Merrill, Hawke refers to Sandal)
  • "I came in and watered your plants! Lots of love, Merrill." That girl's way too nice.

Hawke and Sebastian Edit

Hawke and Varric Edit

Act 2

(At the beginning of the quest Repentance)

  • Sebastian: I-- Hawke! We were just talking about you.
  • Hawke: Carry on. I love to eavesdrop.
  • Varric: "Hawke said sarcastically."

(If the aggressive option was chosen)

  • Varric: "Hawke said aggressively."

(If the diplomatic option was chosen)

  • Hawke: "Saying good things, I hope?"
  • Varric: "Hawke asked diplomatically."
  • Hawke: You know I hate it when you do that.
  • Varric: "Hawke muttered in an angry aside to the dwarf..."
───────

Act 3

(Inside the Hawke Estate, must have Dog)

  • Varric: You know, you play diamondback better than my cousin Vidar. (To Dog)
  • Varric: You wag your tail whenever you have a good hand, though. Might want to watch that.
  • Dog: (Barks)
  • Hawke: Is it brilliant or horrible that you play diamondback with my dog? (humorous) / It's a short tail. I'm sure nobody notices. (diplomatic) / He doesn't take well to having his flaws pointed out. (aggressive)
  • Varric: All I'm saying is, he'd be up more than two sovereigns if he watched his tells.
  • Varric: My Uncle Emmet has a whole pack of rat terriers who play every week.
  • Varric: They're a cutthroat bunch. You've got a long way to go to be their quality.
  • Dog: (Growls)
  • Varric: Now don't take it bad—you're still better than Anders.
  • Dog: (Happy bark!)
  • Varric: Coming to the Hanged Man later?
  • Dog: (Barks)

Legacy Edit

Hawke and Bethany Edit

(In Act 1)

  • Bethany: I'm worried about mother. All she does is sit in that rathole and think about Carver. It's eating her up.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Well, if she ever left the house, Gamlen would probably steal that too.
  • Bethany: I don't think even Gamlen could steal something that doesn't belong to him.
  • Hawke: He would try.
  • Bethany: I've tried to get mother to look for work, or reconnect with some of her childhood friends. But she went to visit the Comte de Launcet once, and now she refuses to try again. She says it's just "too pathetic."

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Brooding isn't going to bring him back.
  • Bethany: I've tried to get mother to look for work, or reconnect with some of her childhood friends. But she went to visit the Comte de Launcet once, and now she refuses to try again. She says it's just "too pathetic."

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: How can we help?
  • Bethany: I've tried to get mother to look for work, or reconnect with some of her childhood friends. But she went to visit the Comte de Launcet once, and now she refuses to try again. She says it's just "too pathetic."
───────

(If Bethany is in the Circle and All That Remains has not been completed)

  • Bethany: Mother seems happier. A few years distance from all that loss... it's a good thing. She must worry, with both of us in a place like this. She was adamant I not go, last time.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: And look what happened.
  • Bethany: I'd have gone to the Circle eventually. Perhaps not so gently. Better or worse, it is what it is.

(If Bethany joined the Grey Wardens and All That Remains has not been completed)

  • Bethany: Mother seems happier. A few years distance from all that loss... it's a good thing. She must worry, with both of us in a place like this. She was adamant I not go, last time.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: I don't want to think of it myself.
  • Bethany: You'd better! I don't want a repeat of the last time! Not that it's possible.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: We'll be careful.
  • Bethany: She's heard that before, and so have I.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Then don't tell her.
  • Bethany: After the thought that brought us here? She's not stupid. Just... be careful when it comes up.
───────

(If All That Remains has been completed and Bethany is in the Circle)

  • Bethany: I'm glad mother... well, she didn't need to deal with this. Attacks on both of us... Why couldn't they go after Gamlen?

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Good taste?
  • Bethany: Unlikely given the average shadow-dweller. There are enough in your wake for a reasonably representative study. The templars often question me about what you do, you know.
  • Hawke: Another reason for me to like them.
  • Bethany: You had reason to begin with? It doesn't matter. They're just questions, and I've stored quite a bewildering weave of answers.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Might not miss him, but I'd still hunt them down for it.
  • Bethany: (Laughs) Yes, you've left quite the trail in other matters. The templars often question me about what you do, you know.
  • Hawke: If they hurt you I'll make them regret it.
  • Bethany: Templars don't take threats well. It doesn't matter. They're just questions, and I've stored quite a bewildering weave of answers.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: I wouldn't wish it even on him.
  • Bethany: He's earned worse, by some measures. The templars often question me about what you do, you know.
  • Hawke: Can I help stop that?
  • Bethany: Their solution would be rather drastic I think. It doesn't matter. They're just questions, and I've stored quite a bewildering weave of answers.
───────

(If All That Remains has been completed and Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Bethany: I'm glad mother... well, she didn't need to deal with this. Attacks on both of us... Why couldn't they go after Gamlen?

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Good taste?
  • Bethany: (Laughs) I wish the things lurking in the dark had such a discerning palate. It'd be almost comforting. Understandable. Instead of what I've seen. Thanks to... this life.
  • Hawke: You'd have less to know about it if you were, you know, dead.
  • Bethany: Sometimes I wonder.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: I wouldn't wish it even on him.
  • Bethany: No, I suppose not. Attack from the dark, no warning. I see enough of that. Thanks to... this life.
  • Hawke: I'm sorry. I couldn't lose you, and I did anyway.
  • Bethany: The way of this world, I think.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Might not miss him, but I'd still hunt them down for it.
  • Bethany: Mm. I know. Can't have a threat lurking in the dark. I've learned that thrice over. It's not what I would've chosen, this life, but given everything else that we've lost... Well, you do this for a few years, you learn not to take second chances for granted.
  • Hawke: You'd still rather be dead?
  • Bethany: I am dead. It's just... taking it's time.
───────

(If Bethany is in the Circle)

  • Bethany: That corruption. I don't think there's any record of it having... that effect. But even the threat of it... anyone normal would choose to die first.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Keep thinking good thoughts.
  • Bethany: Too many ignore it. That's why we need Grey Wardens, and why they're at risk of... that.
  • Hawke: You'd still rather be dead?
  • Bethany: I am dead. It's just... taking it's time.
───────

(If Bethany joined the Grey Wardens)

  • Bethany: That corruption... that's what I was saved from. You wouldn't have let it go that far though. You'd have done anything.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: No worries, everything is dandy now.
  • Bethany: Oh, quite.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: And I would again.
  • Bethany: I know.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: It shouldn't have been necessary.
  • Bethany: Maybe. But thanks.

(Or, in a rivalry)

  • Bethany: That corruption... that's what I was saved from. If you call it saved, anyway.
  • Hawke: I do, and you should too.

Hawke and Carver Edit

(In Act 1)

  • Carver: Whatever we find down here, I don't want this getting back to mother.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Keeping secrets brother? Tsk.
  • Carver: She's worried enough. What good will it do her to know that this kind of thing is... in our blood.
  • Hawke: Maybe she knew.
  • Carver: Then she kept it to herself for good reason. Whatever we find, we need to bury it.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: We'll see and decide.
  • Carver: She's worried enough. What good will it do her to know that this kind of thing is... in our blood.
  • Hawke: Maybe she knew.
  • Carver: Then she kept it to herself for good reason. Whatever we find, we need to bury it.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Not your choice.
  • Carver: She's worried enough. What good will it do her to know that this kind of thing is... in our blood.
  • Hawke: Maybe she knew.
  • Carver: Then she kept it to herself for good reason. Whatever we find, we need to bury it.
───────
  • Carver: That Larius - that's what people become if they're corrupted? I mean, they showed us ghouls before Ostagar, but never live. Never talking. That's never happening to me.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: I'll check under your bed when we get home.
  • Carver: You do that. Get the laundry while you're at it.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: Well, make sure that doesn't happen.
  • Carver: It's that easy? Oh, well, everything's fine then.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Then don't let it.
  • Carver: It's that easy? Oh, well, everything's fine then.
───────

(If Carver is a templar)

  • Carver: One day we'll take the Deep Roads. Do what those Wardens can't seem to get done.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Right, can't be that big of a job. Saving the world.
  • Carver: They couldn't make it look harder if they tried. And maybe they are.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: Probably not that simple, but I'd like to see it.
  • Carver: Wouldn't we all.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Everyone else's job is easy, is that it?
  • Carver: They've have better than a thousand years. If any of this has an end, you think they'd get to it.
───────

(If Carver is a templar and All That Remains has not been completed)

  • Carver: Mother shouldn't have to deal with this. As if you don't give her enough to worry about.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Says the templar.
  • Carver: A respected order. A position with a future, even if it's difficult. Never mind. I don't expect you to get it.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: Given our lineage, she was more upset by you.
  • Carver: A respected order. A position with a future, even if it's difficult. Never mind. I don't expect you to get it.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: You're the one who joined the templars.
  • Carver: A respected order. A position with a future, even if it's difficult. Never mind. I don't expect you to get it.
───────

(If Carver is a Grey Warden)

  • Carver: That... man, and how corrupted he is? Remember that. That's what I'm fighting for.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: It is appreciated.
  • Carver: You're damn right it is.
  • Hawke: Then we agree.
  • Carver: Well... good.
  • Hawke: Good.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: I'll arrange a "thanking queue" when we're back in Kirkwall.
  • Carver: Sure, make fun of the end of the world.
  • Hawke: Best time for it, I'd think.
  • Carver: Well... good.
  • Hawke: Good.
───────

(If Carver is a Grey Warden and All That Remains has not been completed)

  • Carver: Mother shouldn't have to deal with this. I give her enough to worry about.
  • Hawke: Hard to call this your fault.
  • Carver: Trouble follows our name I guess. The price of potential. At least you stay close to home. Must be nice.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Oh yes, bon-bons and peppermints until I am absolutely stuffed. All right, I didn't mean it like that.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: What's that supposed to mean?
  • Carver: I, er, nothing. Nothing. Let's just figure this out.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: I don't think you know what I do.
  • Carver: Maybe that's best.

(Or, in a rivalry)

  • Carver: Trouble follows our name I guess. The price of potential. We Wardens will eventually save the world, and you... well, I'm sure you'll amount to something.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Right. Funny.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Trying hard, brother.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: That's the plan.
───────

(If Carver is a templar and All That Remains has been completed)

  • Carver: Another mess. Is it bad that I'm glad Mother isn't around to suffer this?

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: We do attract a peculiar kind of fortune.
  • Carver: The sides we're on, it's all but guaranteed one of us would be worrying her. If I knew how to fix that, well... it doesn't matter. let's just get this mess cleaned up.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: I don't want to get into it.
  • Carver: The sides we're on, it's all but guaranteed one of us would be worrying her. If I knew how to fix that, well... it doesn't matter. let's just get this mess cleaned up.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: She knew what to expect.
  • Carver: The sides we're on, it's all but guaranteed one of us would be worrying her. If I knew how to fix that, well... it doesn't matter. let's just get this mess cleaned up.
───────

(If Carver is a Grey Warden in Act 3)

  • Carver: Another mess. Is it bad that I'm glad Mother isn't around to suffer this?

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: We do attract a peculiar kind of fortune.
  • Carver: I died my way into the Wardens and you punched your way to Champion. We are esteemed.
  • Hawke: Go with your strengths I guess.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: I don't want to get into it.
  • Carver: I died my way into the Wardens and you punched your way to Champion. We are esteemed.
  • Hawke: Well deserved, every bit of it.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Carver: The corruption of that... man. I've been a Warden how long, and I've ever seen anything like that. I guess that's why I'm still alive. To stop that.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: And dumb luck. That's the other reason you're alive.
  • Carver: (Laughs) Credit where it's due, I suppose.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: I don't envy you the job.
  • Carver: The attacks that brought me here were almost a welcome distraction. A normal assault with a normal enemy. I should have known, really. Nothing normal about us.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: First things first, Warden.
  • Carver: Right. You, then everything else. Got it.

───────

(If Carver is a templar in Act 3)

  • Carver: Everything lower than Lowtown should just be filled in. The lot of it.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: So kill everything lower than your upturned nose?
  • Carver: If you don't want rats, you get rid of the colony.
  • Hawke: And then whatever eats rats has to look your way.
  • Carver: Well, lets do nothing then. My mistake.

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Shut up.
  • Carver: Yes, yes, too simple for the great machinations of the Elder Hawke.
  • Hawke: No, really, just shut up.

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: Seems a little harsh.
  • Carver: Really? You like chasing people back down their holes? I'd prefer they never came out in the first place.
  • Hawke: It's not a choice everyone has.
  • Carver: If they can't make it, doesn't mean I can't.
───────

(Breaking the seals)

  • Carver: I suppose he won't stop coming after us unless we do this.

(Humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: If you like, we could leave a strongly worded note on his sarcophagus and go.
  • Carver: You're so clever.

Hawke and Anders Edit

  • Anders: One good thing about being trapped in an ancient underground prison... not a lot of templars.
  • Anders: There's a bright side to everything.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality: )

  • Hawke: A new base of operations for Kirkwall's mage underground.
  • Anders: It's got... potential.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: You should set up shop. It's no worse than your current digs.
  • Anders: Good point.
  • Hawke: Just wait.
  • Anders: I could be quite comfortable here actually. Clean the taint off the floor, maybe hang a few pictures. It might even be a step up from Darktown.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: I've never argued against you being in prison.
  • Anders: Hmm. At least this one was built by mages.
───────
  • Anders: I've tried to forget about this side of myself. Justice is... so strong. Sometimes the Wardens seem insignificant. But seeing that poor bastard brings it all back. The Darkspawn taint. The call of the archdemon. It's inside me, as much a part of me as Justice.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Ooh, baby. Tell me more.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality: )

  • Hawke: Maybe there's a cure.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Never bothered me before.

(If Anders has moved in)

  • Anders: You should find someone else, love. You don't want all the ugliness I'm going to bring into your life.

(Or)

  • Anders: There's a lot of ugliness in my life. You should stay away from me.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality: )

  • Hawke: I'll... take it under advisement.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Nobody's perfect.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Not a chance.

(If Varric is in the party)

  • Varric: I gotta hand it to you, Blondie, you make that work every time.
───────

(If Carver is a Grey Warden and not in the party)

  • Anders: Have you heard from Carver at all?

(Depending on what Act it is)

  • Hawke: Not a word. I think it hurts my mother the most. She never quite believed me saying that Carver didn't die.

(Or)

  • Hawke: Are they allowed to write? I thought the Grey Wardens had a thing against friends and family.
  • Anders: It's not easy, being a Warden. Sometimes it's better to cut all ties with your old life. When I joined, all I wanted was an escape from the Circle. But it's more. It's a calling, it really is. Carver's the kind of man who can find fulfillment in battling the darkspawn. He'll do fine.
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden and not in the party)

  • Anders: Have you heard from Bethany recently?
  • Hawke: Not a word. I think that hurt mother the most. It would have been nice to get one letter before she died.
  • Anders: Bethany will find something to be proud of. It suits her more than she thinks.

Hawke and Fenris Edit

(If Hawke is romancing Fenris, but presumably before completing Fenris' Act 3 Questioning Beliefs)

  • Hawke: So, Fenris... we, uh... we haven't spoken since...
  • Fenris: You wish to do this here? In front of everyone?

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Kinky.
  • Fenris: That wasn't... ugh. Nevermind.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality or aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Not my first choice, no.
  • Fenris: Nor mine. I'm sorry.
───────
  • Fenris: How is it you get into these situations so often?
  • Hawke: What do you mean?
  • Fenris: Hmm. Attacked by dwarves, approached by strangers, stumbling upon ancient riddles... madness.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: I don't know why it's like that. Fate, I suppose.
  • Fenris: "Fate" is a word for the Maker's poor sense of humor.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: It's a gift.
  • Fenris: (laughs) Well I think you should return it.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: It does feel like some unseen force is manipulating my fate.
  • Fenris: It's so wonderful having my personal business as someone else's sport.
───────
  • Fenris: Thank you for asking me to come along again, Hawke.
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality or aggressive/direct personality) Is there a reason I wouldn't?
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) Why wouldn't I? More the merrier.
  • Fenris: I just... am pleased. To see you. That's all.

(Depending on who's in the party)

  • Varric: Smooth.
  • Isabela: (laughs) Oh Fenris.
  • Carver: (laughs)
  • Aveline: (laughs) And I thought I was bad at it.
  • Merrill: Oh. I think it's sweet.
───────
  • Fenris: Why are the Wardens always up to mischief?
  • Carver: (laughs) I know right? You'd think they have nothing better to do.
  • Hawke: It's in their blood I suppose.
  • Fenris: They've no Blight to combat now. This keeps them busy?

Hawke and Isabela Edit

  • Hawke: Someday I'll visit a place with no ancient evils, horrors, devouring plagues, or insanity.
  • Hawke: Maybe a beach.
  • Isabela: I can recommend a few, if you'd like.
  • Hawke: Please do.

(If Varric is in the party)

  • Varric: The day you go to the beach is the day an armada of angry demon pirates show up.
  • Hawke: I've got a bad feeling all of a sudden.
───────
  • Isabela: Watch out, the ground looks treacherous here.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: Thank you.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Showing concern for others, Isabela? Tongues will wag.
  • Varric: Oh you can bet they will.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Hmm, I didn't think you cared.
  • Isabela: I... just don't want to see your brains dashed on the ground, that's all. Stop looking at me like that. I shouldn't have said anything.
───────
  • Isabela: So now you're the target of batty dwarven assassins? You do attract the strangest types.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: It does seem that way, doesn't it?
  • Isabela: I wonder what it is. Perhaps you should bathe more frequently.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Yes. Like lust addled pirates.
  • Isabela: (laughs) Ooh, touché.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: You think I asked for this?
  • Isabela: I'm just making an observation.
───────
  • Isabela: Do you hope to learn something about your father down here?

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: Of course, I barely remember him.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: So long as it doesn't also involve my mother. Some things about your parents should never see the light of day.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Haven't thought about it. I just want to get out of here. Alive, if possible.
  • Isabela: Well, I think your father sounds like someone worth knowing. According my mother, my father wasn't. Not even for one night.
───────

(During the battle with Corypheus)

  • Isabela: Get his armor off!
  • Hawke: Really, Isabela?
  • Isabela: I don't mean that! Stun him, paralyze him!

Hawke and Merrill Edit

  • Merrill: How come you never get lost?
  • Hawke: I do. Sometimes.
  • Merrill: I've never seen it! And everybody follows you, and you always seem to know where you're going.
  • Hawke: Just act like you know where you're going, that's usually enough.
  • Merrill: I try that sometimes! But there's no amount of confidence that makes up for walking into the Grand Cleric's airing cupboard.
  • Hawke: What about that time I led us in circles around the Wounded Coast for 3 hours?
  • Merrill: Oh! I thought you were just admiring the view! Eh, it was a lovely day at least.
───────
  • Merrill: I am so sorry about the wardrobe. Was it very badly smashed?

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: It's fine, Merrill. How did it break anyway?

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: I had to put it out of its misery. What happened?

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: What did you do to it exactly?
  • Merrill: I didn't expect it to fall over the railing like that. I thought it'd be more stable.
  • Hawke: Fell over the railing? What?
  • Merrill: I mean it held up just fine for me! Poor Sandal, it took hours for Bodahn to coax him down from the chandelier.
  • Hawke: On second thought, I don't want to know.
───────
  • Merrill: Why do you suppose the Carta want to live in a big hole in the ground?

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: I don't think they want to be here.
  • Merrill: Do you think they fell down here and got stuck? Maybe a good rope ladder would solve this whole Carta problem.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Oh, it's an up-and-coming neighborhood. In a few years, all the fashionable families will be down here.
  • Merrill: I don't think they'd make good neighbors, what with being crazy. The Carta, I mean, not the - I'll stop talking now.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Vermin always flock to dark places.
  • Merrill: Oh! Just like rats. I wonder if a lot of bread crumbs fall down here.
───────
  • Merrill: I have to say, this is a nice break from the templars giving me the hairy eyeball all the time.
  • Hawke: Carver...

(If Hawke is in a romance with Merrill and Carver is a templar)

  • Carver: Don't you worry, it wasn't and won't be me. Have your fun.

(Otherwise)

  • Carver: Don't look at me. I haven't given her a hairy anything. Not that it's your business.

Hawke and Sebastian Edit

  • Sebastian: I wish my parents could see me now.
  • Sebastian: They always said I had "no sense of the dignity of my station." A disgrace to the Vael name.

<Location dependent>

  • Sebastian: Now, here I am, tracking down dwarven ruffians...
  • Sebastian: Now, here I am, traipsing around the Deep Roads like a common soldier...

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: I'm sure they'd be proud of you for defending a friend.
  • Sebastian: They must be rolling in their graves...

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: If you could bring your family back from the dead, that's what you'd want? For them to be disappointed in you?
  • Sebastian: (Laughs) How else would I know it's really them?

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: They're dead. Let them go.
  • Sebastian: They must be rolling in their graves...


Hawke and Varric Edit

  • Hawke: Varric, I've heard... stories of a personal nature being spread around town.

(If Act 3, otherwise depending on friendship/rivalry)

  • Varric: You're the Champion of Kirkwall. People pay attention to everything you do. And everyone.

(Friendship)

  • Varric: And you want me to set the record straight? I'm honored.

(Rivalry)

  • Varric: If you want your private life to stay, uh, private, maybe don't sleep with half of Kirkwall.

(If romancing Anders)

  • Varric: As it happens, I haven't said a word about you and Blondie. I'd look at that, uh, uncle of yours for this particular rumor.
  • Anders: I'm right here, you know. Should I stick my fingers in my ears until you're done?

(If romancing Fenris)

  • Varric: I haven't told anyone about you and that, uh, angsty Tevinter elf. Try looking closer to home for that intelligence leak.
  • Fenris: Angsty Tevinter Elf?
  • Varric: What can I say? I strive for accuracy.

(If romancing Isabela)

  • Varric: I'm not spreading any tales about you and the Rivaini. Although she asks me every other week to start some.
  • Isabela: It would make a great new serial. Much better than that guard one you've been writing.

(If romancing Merrill)

  • Varric: I haven't breathed a word to anyone about you and Daisy. Maybe you better have a talk with uh, uncle greasy?
  • Hawke: Gamlen.
───────
  • Hawke: Someday I'll visit a place with no ancient evils, horrors, devouring plagues, or insanity.
  • Hawke: Maybe a beach.
  • Isabela: I can recommend a few, if you'd like.
  • Hawke: Please do.

(If Varric is in the party)

  • Varric: The day you go to the beach is the day an armada of angry demon pirates show up.
  • Hawke: I've got a bad feeling all of a sudden.
───────
  • Hawke: When you tell people about our escape from Lothering, why do you make it seem like I have food all over my face?
  • Varric: You're larger than life, Hawke. I had to give you a few flaws just to make you approachable.
  • Hawke: Did you call me fat?
  • Varric: Yes, that's pretty much how I tell it. "Hawke rolled into the fray like a gigantic pudding, covered in gravy." It's more dramatic that way.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: I'm not sure about the epicness of this tale.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Does it have to be gravy? Couldn't it be chocolate instead?

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: I hope the story ends, "And then Hawke backhanded the mouthy dwarf."
  • Varric: Everyone's a critic.
───────
  • Hawke: I'd like to know who this "Corypheus" is. With a name like that, I know he's bound to go "Muahaha" at some point, I just know it. And really? More blood? Why can't it ever be spit or a lock of hair?
  • Varric: You really want to encounter a spit mage?
  • Hawke: For variety, sure.

(If Carver is in the party and in a friendship)

  • Carver: You worry me, you know that?

(Rivalry)

  • Carver: Oh, shut up.
───────
  • Hawke: I heard you're being fixed up with one of the Helmi daughters.
  • Varric: Thanks Hawke. I've been trying to forget about that all week.
  • Hawke: So... not love at first sight?
  • Varric: Dusana Helmi is easy on the eyes. Also, she's tried to kill me five times this year.
  • Hawke: Did she try again during the date?
  • Varric: She waited until I paid for dinner. She's in the Merchant's Guild, Hawke.
  • Hawke: So, you're not going to see her again?
  • Varric: No. And I might leave town for a while just to make sure.
  • Hawke: Being the most eligible bachelor in the Merchant Guild is perilous indeed.
  • Varric: I'm going to need more aliases.
───────
  • Hawke: I'm surprised you agreed to come, Varric. You hate being underground and you avoid the Carta the same way you do the Merchant Guild.
  • Varric: There's no way I'd miss watching you make these motherless nug-lickers cry. If you wanna punch a few stalagmites on the way there, that's good too.
───────

(Upon reaching the Final Seal)

  • Varric: Oh, that's nice.
  • Hawke: What's so nice about it?
  • Varric: I was just wondering what some place sinister and foreboding would look like, and here it is.

Mark of the Assassin Edit

Hawke and Anders Edit

(After the ambush in Hightown)

  • Anders: So you trust this woman who just leapt off a rooftop into the middle of an ambush with the Crows?
  • Tallis: I didn't have anything to do with the ambush.
  • Anders: I wasn't asking if you did.
  • Hawke: I'm pretty sure she's not a templar, Anders.
───────
  • Anders: What was your father like?
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) A good man, patient. He never yelled, but you knew when he was disappointed.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) You could never get a straight answer out of the man. Everything was a joke. People say I take after him.
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) Strict. High expectations. And if you didn't meet them, you'd hear about it.
  • Anders:
    • (To a male Hawke) If more mages were allowed to keep their families, people would learn not to fear them so much.
    • (To a female Hawke) You know, you're the only person I've met with a mage parent she actually remembers.
    • (To a a mage Hawke) You and Bethany were lucky. Most mages would kill to have what you had.
  • Anders: At the Circle, any accidental babies are taken away before the mother even sees them.
  • Hawke:
    • (Diplomatic) That's horrible.
    • (Humorous) And the Chantry says it's all about protecting families.
    • (Aggressive) My father would never stand for that.
───────

(If romanced, after they have escaped from the Dungeons)

  • Anders: Here I always figured you'd be the one coming to spring me from someone's dungeon. I had it all planned.
  • Anders: I'd be in the Gallows, templars all around, holding the brand for the Rite of Tranquility. Then you'd burst in and break my chains.
  • Anders: And then it would be all about the best way to show my gratitude.
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) Then I should spend some time working out how to thank you.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) Did it have anything to do with finding another use for those chains?
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) You already know the best way to do that.

(The next line depends on who is in the party)

  • Fenris: Get a room!
  • Aveline: I hate to point this out, but... Tallis rescued Hawke.
  • Isabela: This is all so sweet... but we didn't actually do any rescuing, remember?
  • Tallis: Not to come between you two or anything, but you didn't actually rescue us.
  • Tallis: I did.
  • Hawke: Though... you didn't actually rescue me, did you?
  • Anders: It's the thought that counts.

(Alternative)

  • Anders: I could be grateful to you too.
───────
  • Anders: This hobnobbing with the nobility suits you.
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic personality) I didn't think you have a particularly high opinion of them.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) I suspect that's an insult.
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) Take that back!
  • Anders: Meant in the best possible way.
  • Anders: I knew the day I met you that you'd rise above the rest of the refugees.
  • Anders: I wish there were more nobles who had to earn it.

Hawke and Aveline Edit

(After the ambush in Hightown)

  • Aveline: I don't like the sound of this, Hawke.
  • Hawke: (Diplo) You think it's a trap, or you don't want to steal from a nobleman.
  • Aveline: I don't think we should be breaking laws for someone we just met.
  • Tallis: I'm right here, you know. Should I stand farther away? Maybe plug my ears?
───────
  • Aveline: So this is what life could have been if father hadn't been exiled.
  • Aveline:
    • (During Act 1) Fancy. I wonder if I would've liked it.
    • (Otherwise) I think I'm all right with what I've got. And who I've got.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic personality)

  • Hawke: Right, you were born in Orlais. Lady du Lac.
  • Aveline: (Laughs) It sounds so... ridiculous.
  • Aveline: They're not all like this. I wouldn't be. Father wasn't.
  • Aveline: I suppose that was the problem.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: You'd look grand next to the De Launcets. All coiffed and... buttressed.
  • Aveline: Maker, no!
  • Hawke: Aveline, my bulbous cherub, you must hear the droning of Lord Full-of-Shit.
  • Aveline: Stop it, you.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Nothing I see from this lot makes me second guess a thing.
  • Aveline: Well, no. But their nation didn't get as strong as it is because of this bunch.
  • Aveline: It's a proud place with good reason. At least, that's what Father chose to say.
───────

(If Hawke helps Tallis)

  • Aveline: I don't like getting caught up in this, Hawke. Qunari follow their own laws, not ours.
  • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)
    • Hawke: Tallis makes you uncomfortable?
    • Tallis: Yes, do I?
    • Aveline: It all makes me uncomfortable. Which is probably intentional.
  • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)
    • Hawke: And when have I ever stayed in my place?
    • Aveline: (Laughs) Fair point.
  • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)
    • Hawke: Siding with the Orlesians would be any better?
    • Aveline: At least they're understandable.
  • Aveline: Can a Qunari be grateful to outsiders? We're just tools.
  • Aveline: They really aren't like us. Not even her.

Hawke and Bethany Edit

(After the ambush in Hightown)

  • Bethany: What are we going to do about all these dead Crows?
  • Hawke: I think the street sweepers clean them up eventually.
  • Bethany: That really doesn't make me feel better.
  • Tallis: Everyone's got to make a living somehow.
───────

(During Act 1)

  • Bethany: Are you sure we should be doing this?
  • Bethany: I mean, I know we need coin, but... stealing? What if this duke is on good terms with the templars?

(If Hawke has a diplomatic personality)

  • Hawke: We're not stealing. We're returning the jewel to its rightful owner.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke:
    • (If you worked for Meeran) You don't bat an eye at fireballing people for Meeran's profit, but you draw the line at stealing?
    • (If you worked for Athenril) You were all right with smuggling thousands of sovereigns for Athenril, but you draw the line at one jewel?
  • Bethany: We didn't have a choice. Now that we're working for ourselves, I just thought we could do better.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: We won't get caught.
───────

(If Bethany is a Circle mage)

  • Hawke: Happy to be out of the Circle?
  • Bethany: It's strange. I miss a lot, but other things...

(If Hawke is female)

  • Bethany: You're a far better "Lady Hawke" than I would have been.
  • Hawke: I don't believe that for a second.

(If Hawke is male)

  • Bethany: You're a far better representative of the family than I would have been.
  • Hawke: Please be sure to tell these snobs.
───────

(If Bethany is a Grey Warden)

  • Hawke: Happy to be out of the Deep Roads for a while?
  • Bethany: Not especially.
  • Bethany: I'm sure it's nice for you. These are your kind of people.
  • Bethany: No, that wasn't fair. I'm... I'm sorry. That was about me.
  • Hawke: I know. And it wasn't fair for you either.

Hawke and Carver Edit

(After the ambush in Hightown)

  • Carver: Why can't we ever meet any normal people?
  • Tallis: I'm normal!
  • Carver: You jumped off a roof and stabbed a man in the back.
  • Tallis: In a completely normal fashion!
───────

(During Act 1)

  • Carver: Maybe I should join the Qun
  • Carver: They're warriors. They respect strength, determination. They have no family ties.
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) Really? That's the draw?
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) You might struggle with the "obedience to authority" part.
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) And they kill you if you whine. You'd hate it.
  • Carver: Ha! Got you.
  • Carver: I'm not joining the bloody Qun. But Gamlen... he'd fall for it. Hmm...
───────

(If Carver is a templar)

  • Carver: Try not to cause too much trouble, will you? I have to uphold the tenets of the order now.

(Friendship and rivalry)[confirmation needed]

  • Hawke:
    • (As a friend) Am I... compatible with those tenets?
    • (As a rival) Should I be worried, templar?
  • Carver: Don't you remember how we scrambled to buy influence? It worked, obviously.
  • Carver: No one is touching Hawke of Hightown. Not without a lot of weight behind them.

(Alternative)

  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) I don't think I'm cut out to follow your tenets.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) Well, you know where you can "uphold" them.
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) I'll try and work in some mage-oppression too.
  • Carver: Right. You and I can keep it civil until you're done... whatever it is you think you're doing.
───────

(If Carver is a Grey Warden)

  • Carver: So, still playing at these little adventures.
  • (Alternative)[further explanation needed]
  • Carver: You never did know when to put away your toys.
  • Hawke:
    • But they's such fun! And you're so old now.
    • So "grow up" is what my little brother is saying.
  • Carver: Seems odd, doesn't it?
  • Carver: Have your fun. But it has to end someday. Everything does.

(Alternative)[further explanation needed]

  • Hawke: And you never knew when to shut up.
  • Carver: Harsh, but fair.
  • Carver: Have your fun. But it has to end someday. Everything does.

(Alternative to the "toys" line)[further explanation needed]

  • Carver: Seems like you could be doing something bigger with your name.

(During Act 2)[confirmation needed]

  • Hawke:[further explanation needed]
    • Do you have an estate? I have an estate.
    • You should come see the estate before you judge.
  • Carver: Right. The family fortune. And yet you're still chasing stuff like this.
  • Carver: Sounds like it's ringing hollow, Brother.

(During Act 3)[confirmation needed]

  • Hawke:[further explanation needed]
    • Um, hello: Champion.
    • The mantle of Champion sits pretty comfortably.
    • Seems like sour grapes.
    • I'm the Champion. What do you want?
  • Carver: Right. I know how you got the title. How often do you think that's going to happen?
  • Carver: Everything ends. Someday.
───────
  • Carver: Is this revenge?
  • Carver: You're mad at me for something, so you drag me out to "Baron Paucity de Rochfort's" grand fete?

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: I figured there'd at least be free food.
  • Carver: I do like free food.
  • Hawke: I've got your back.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: (Chuckles) I've been calling him "Duke Prosperity," but Paucity de Rochfort is much better.
  • Carver: Le Baron du Stinky-Cheese...

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Yes, inviting you to a party is an insidious punishment I've been planning for months.
  • Carver: Probably going to make me eat the moldy cheese, too.
───────

(About the three statues in the Dungeons)

  • Carver: Look at these guys. "Arr. Would yer like me to swab yer poop deck, matey?"
  • Hawke: Carver, stop.
  • Carver: Sorry.

Hawke and Fenris Edit

(After the ambush in Hightown)

  • Fenris: Everywhere we go, people try to kill you.
  • Hawke: You've been responsible for that yourself, on a few occasions.
  • Tallis: I'll fit right in, then.
───────

(If Hawke is romancing Fenris)

  • Fenris: You frightened me.
  • Hawke: Me?
  • Fenris: Before we found you, there was a moment when I...
  • Fenris: Don't do that again.
───────

(After fighting Ghasts on the mountainside)

  • Fenris: Just how many creatures live on this mountain?
  • Hawke: Be thankful they're not high dragons.
  • Fenris: Hmm. Good point.
───────
  • Fenris: You are too willing to involve yourself in the affairs of others, Hawke.
  • Fenris: Each time you put yourself at risk. One day you will not be so lucky.
  • Hawke: You have a better idea?
  • Fenris: Guard what you have. Keep your head low.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: That sounds like a way to go through life without ever knowing anyone.
  • Fenris: I... suppose so.
  • Hawke: How well has that worked for you, Fenris?
  • Fenris: (Grunts)

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Like a dragon! Guarding my treasure hoard.
  • Fenris: That's not what I meant.
  • Hawke: Shall I eat passersby? Maybe I can demand virgin sacrifices.
  • Fenris: Even dragons are eventually slain, Hawke.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: Without risk, there's no reward.
  • Fenris: Perhaps. One day you may simply end up being rewarded with a blade in the back.
  • Hawke: Not your blade, however.
  • Fenris: Not my blade, no.

Hawke and Isabela Edit

(After the ambush in Hightown)

  • Isabela: Don't forget to loot the bodies!
  • Hawke: Do I ever?
  • Tallis: Do you really need to pillage the dead?
  • Isabela: Pillage and plunder is half the fun!
───────
  • Isabela: Would you tell your uncle to leave me alone? He's often... inappropriate.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: How so?
  • Isabela: Please don't make me go into the details.
  • Hawke: I'll see what I can do. And thank you for not breaking his legs.
  • Isabela: I don't beat on the elderly. And... I really don't want to touch him.
  • Isabela: How are you two even related? It boggles the mind.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: You find something inappropriate?
  • Isabela: Extremely so! It's... rather repulsive, actually. Please talk to him.
  • Hawke: But it's more entertaining if I don't.
  • Isabela: Hawke!
  • Hawke: You have pretty eyes.
  • Isabela: Oh, you're impossible!

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: You're perfectly capable of dealing with such things yourself. I've seen it.
  • Isabela: You want me to beat up a feeble old man?
  • Isabela: That's cold, even for you.
  • Isabela: I know. I'll ask Lady Biceps. She'll have an answer.
  • Aveline: Break him. And wear pants.
───────
  • Isabela: (Snickers)
  • Hawke: What is it now?
  • Isabela: Ghast hole.

(If Aveline is in the party)

  • Aveline: (Snickers) Not funny.

Hawke and Merrill Edit

(If Hawke romances Merrill)

  • Merrill: Ma vhenan, I was thinking... maybe your house needs a garden.
  • Hawke: I suppose it wouldn't hurt.

(Otherwise)

  • Merrill: Hawke... have you ever thought about planting a garden?
  • Hawke:
    • (During Act 1): At Gamlen's house? You don't think that would be cruel to the plants?
    • (Otherwise): I hadn't really. Why?
  • Merrill: Things seem so grim all the time. You could use a few flowers.
───────
  • Merrill: It's so exciting to be out of Kirkwall! It seems we haven't left there in ages!
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) We go to lots of places.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) We do seem to spend a ridiculous amount of time in the city.
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) I suppose.
  • Merrill: I needed this break. I was starting to think every part of Kirkwall looked alike.
───────

(In the dungeons)

  • Merrill: Oh, caves! I like caves!
  • Hawke: No, you don't, Merrill.
  • Merrill: Oh, right! Giant creepy spiders and things live in caves! What is it I'm thinking of, then? Ruins?
───────

(After encountering two wyverns if Hawke leaves Tallis)

  • Merrill: Hahren Paivel used to tell stories about wyverns.
  • Hawke: What kind of stories?
  • Merrill: The "never go to the mountains where they hunt because whole Dalish clans have vanished" sort.
  • Merrill: They never had happy endings. Except for the wyvern chicks, I guess.

Hawke and Sebastian Edit

  • Sebastian: I wonder if there's something we can learn from the Qunari.
  • Sebastian: Have you seen how loyal they are? Even the least member has the faith of a dedicated brother.

(If Hawke is male)

  • Hawke:[further explanation needed]
    • People like being told what to think. The Chantry is too open-minded.
    • Maybe you should talk to Tallis. Find out what drew her to the Qun.
    • They just do what they're told.

(If Hawke is female)

  • Hawke: Are you leaving me to join the Qun?
  • Sebastian: Never.
  • Sebastian: I wonder what it takes to convince so many people that you have all the answers.
───────

(During Act 2)

  • Sebastian: I'm surprised you never took the Amell name.
  • Hawke: Why?
  • Sebastian:
    • (To a female Hawke) Once the viscount accepted you as your grandparents' heir, you could have been Lady Amell.
    • (To a male Hawke) The viscount accepted you as your grandparents' legitimate heir. If you took the name, you'd be a lord.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: I'm happy with who I am.
  • Sebastian: You're right, then. You wouldn't fit in among the nobility.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Like I don't have enough people trying to kill me already?
  • Sebastian: (Laughs) This isn't Antiva. Not all nobles are targets for assassination.
  • Varric: How sheltered are you?

(Otherwise)

  • Hawke: Are you supposed to be proof of this theory?
  • Sebastian: Point.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Hawke: I'd rather teach them to respect the name Hawke.

Hawke and Varric Edit

  • Hawke: Who in the blazes is that?
  • Varric: Don't know! Kill people, then ask!
  • Tallis: Good plan!
───────

(After the ambush in Hightown)

  • Varric: So, that meeting with Edge?
  • Hawke: The one that turned into an ambush just now?
  • Varric: I changed my mind. Let's not go.
───────
  • Hawke: What makes you think I steal things because people ask me to?

(If Isabela is in the party)

  • Isabela: Well I would.

(If Aveline is also in the party)

  • Aveline: (Scoffs) What don't you do?

(If Fenris is in the party)

  • Fenris: That's our Isabela. Such a giver.
  • Varric: I may have talked you up a bit. Maybe more than once.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Hawke: Oh Varric.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Hawke: Wonderful.

(If Hawke is a mage)

  • Varric: What? You'd rather I told everyone you were a mage?
───────
  • Hawke: Varric.
  • Varric: You called?
  • Hawke: I notice you don't have a nickname for me.
  • Varric: I call you Hawke. You've probably heard it once or twice.
  • Hawke: But that's my name. It's not like Daisy or Blondie.

(If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality)

  • Varric: All right, Waffles. You really want a nickname, I can hook you up.
  • Hawke: Waffles? That's... unexpected.

(If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality)

  • Varric: Sure, Chuckles. You want a nickname, I'll be happy to fix you up.
  • Hawke: Chuckles? That works.

(If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality)

  • Varric: If you really want a nickname, I can oblige. I'm thinking about going with Killer.
  • Hawke: How creative.
───────
  • Varric: Watch it. Ghast hole.
  • Hawke: A what hole?
  • Varric: A scholar might call it something else, but they don't know their ghasts from a hole in the ground.

(If Anders is in the party)

  • Anders: And they say I'm the monster.

(If Aveline is in the party)

  • Aveline: I'm going to hit him. I'll do it.

(If Bethany is in the party)

  • Bethany: Oh, for the love of...

(If Carver is in the party)

  • Carver: (Laughs)

(If Fenris is in the party)

  • Fenris: That one actually hurt.

(If Isabela is in the party)

  • Isabela: (Snickers)

(Else)

  • Hawke: Why do you bad-touch words like that?
───────
  • Hawke: I've always meant to ask, Varric, when we met in the Merchant Guild, you seemed to be waiting for me.
  • Varric: That's a statement, Hawke. What's your question?
  • Hawke: Were you waiting for me?
  • Varric: Actually, I meant to catch you before you saw Bartrand.
  • Hawke: But you knew I'd be there.
  • Varric: Maybe I wasn't obvious about this already, but finding out things I'm not supposed to know is pretty much what I do.

Hawke and Tallis Edit

  • Tallis: Is your family really from Kirkwall? I heard you were Fereldan.
  • Hawke: My mother's family is from Kirkwall. We left Ferelden during the Blight.
  • Tallis: Makes sense. Did you know the Warden?
  • Hawke: No. Someone even told me she/he came to Lothering. But if so, I never saw him/her.

(If the Warden was a human mage)

  • Hawke: No, but I understand s/he is a relative.
  • Tallis: Why am I not surprised?
───────
  • Tallis: Champion of Kirkwall? Fancy title.
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) Not that fancy.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) The "Only One in Kirkwall not Completely Insane" was considered.
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality): It was earned.
  • Tallis: So do you get a stipend? They let you rule the city?
  • Hawke:
    • (Diplomatic) I'm not sure someone can rule that city.
    • (Humorous) They gave me a medal. It's shiny.
    • (Aggressive) Not yet.
───────

(If Hawke flirted with Tallis)

  • Tallis: Are you married?
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) Is that a proposal?
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) Performing a survey?
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) Why?
  • Tallis: It's just you're the Champion of Kirkwall... Big. Important. I don't know.
  • Tallis:
    • (To a male Hawke) Just wondering if there is a little woman behind your throne.
    • (To a female Hawke) Just... wondering if there is a husband behind the throne.

(If Hawke currently romances one of them and is present)

  • Anders: Yes, who is behind your throne, Hawke?
  • Isabela: Yes. That's a very good question, isn't it?
  • Fenris: A fine question.
  • Hawke: Let's keep moving.

(If Hawke romances Merrill)

  • Merrill: Are there any thrones in your mansion, Hawke? All the chairs are so small.
  • Hawke: Oh Merrill.

(If not)

  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) Not unless I stowed the body there.
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality) No.
───────
  • Hawke: Just how long has this wyvern hunt been going on?
  • Tallis: It's an annual tradition the Montforts began to keep the population down. They breed quickly.

(If Hawke is romancing Fenris)

  • Fenris: Elves too. We're plucky that way.
  • Tallis: Well there's no annual elf hunt. Yet.
  • Hawke: And the Orlesian nobility is only too happy to help out?
  • Tallis: It's a game. The Montforts are close to the empress, so anything that pleases them is worth pursuing. Plus you should really try the aquae lucidius. You'll be seeing purple dragons in the sky for days.

(If Carver is in the party and it is completed in Act 1)

  • Carver: For days? Really?
  • Hawke: Don't even think about it, Carver.
  • Carver: You never let me have any fun.

(If Carver is in the party and it is completed after Act 1)

  • Carver: And you'll be completely useless the whole time.
  • Hawke: I don't even want to ask how you know.

(If Varric is in the party)

  • Varric: Forty crowns a bottle on the black market. Not that I've checked or anything.
───────
  • Hawke: For a slaughtering ground, it's actually rather pretty.
  • Tallis: The Montfort family inherited this mountain from a clan of Nevarran dragon-hunters. Well, maybe inherited is the wrong word. What do you call it when you kill someone in order to get all their stuff?

(Diplomatic Hawke)

  • Hawke: Murder?
  • Tallis: Profitable murder, maybe.

(Sarcastic Hawke)

  • Hawke: Adventuring!

(Aggressive Hawke)

  • Hawke: Tuesday.
───────
  • Tallis: Watch out. There may be ghasts.
  • Hawke: From a hole.
  • Tallis: Cave, technically.
───────
  • Tallis: Watch out! Big-hat ghast!

(If Isabela is in the party)

  • Isabela: (Snickers) Ghast hat.

(Otherwise)

  • Hawke: Big hats are never good!
───────
  • Tallis: Is that... wyverns mating?
  • Hawke: Could we mimic that?
  • Tallis: No! Oh, the sound. Right, yes, I can try that.
───────

(During the Orlesian party, when clicked)

  • Tallis: I see several men who might be captains in the duke's guard. One of them should have a key.
  • Hawke: And how do you propose we get it from them?
  • Tallis: How else? We ask nicely, and tell him we'll give it right back.
  • Hawke:
    • (If Hawke has a diplomatic/helpful personality) I'm sure they wouldn't mind. Orlesians are such pleasant people.
    • (If Hawke has a humorous/charming personality) Brilliant! Why didn't I think of that?
    • (If Hawke has an aggressive/direct personality): Remind me why busting down the door isn't an option?
───────
  • Hawke: More Qunari!
  • Tallis: Tal-Vashoth!
  • Hawke: You know what I mean!
───────

(To Baron Arlange as a female Hawke)

  • Tallis: You do realize this woman has nasty little thugs like you for breakfast, I hope?

(Sarcastic Hawke)

  • Hawke: Only when we're out of pancakes.

(To Baron Arlange as a male Hawke)

  • Tallis: You do realize this man could beat you like a rented mule with both hands tied behind his back?

(Sarcastic Hawke)

  • Hawke: A rented mule would smell better.
───────
  • Tallis: You let him go? That was.. very merciful.

(If Isabela is in the party)

  • Isabela: That's Hawke. "Merciful."

(If Merrill is in the party)

  • Merrill: Hawke is nice to everybody! Well, not bandits and skeletons and things. But everyone else!

(If Aveline is in the party)

  • Aveline: We only slaughter ninety percent of the things we meet.

(If Anders is in the party)

  • Anders: That's not a bad word, you know.

(If Bethany is in the party)

  • Bethany: That's one way to put it.

(If Carver is in the party)

  • Carver: You say that like it's a bad thing.
  • Tallis: We should go to the chateau. Time to practice your table conversation.
  • Hawke: And my Orlesian accent!
───────

(If you take the direct approach to going through Chateau Haine)

  • Tallis: I came here to stop needless death, not to cause it.
  • Tallis: What if there are others? I can't turn back now.
  • Hawke:Speak up please, some of us are hard of hearing.
  • Tallis: Are you really?
  • Hawke: No.
───────
  • Hawke: I guess the good news is with all this extra time I could learn to knit.
  • Tallis: Could you make me a sweater?
  • Hawke: No.
  • Tallis: (Sighs)
───────

(Said if you bring only one companion instead of showing the cutscene where Hawke's companions are looking for them)

  • Tallis: So, any ideas on how to get out of here?
  • Hawke: I would turn into a dragon, but I'm all out of swamp witches.
  • Tallis: Aww. To think I passed a vendor on the way to Kirkwall. They were on sale, too!

(After Tallis opens the bars)

  • Hawke: You could have done that sooner.
  • Tallis: I wanted to talk.
───────

(If Hawke flirted with Tallis)

  • Tallis: So you could go. There are, however... other options.

(Sarcastic/humorous Hawke)

  • Hawke: Coming on a bit strong, there, Tallis. We've only just met.
  • Tallis: But we've been through so much together! Wyvern hunts, betrayals, daring escapes from prison...
  • Hawke: You're right. I'm feeling so close to you right now.
  • Tallis: (Laughs) So it's true what they say about you.

(If Hawke currently romances one of them and is present)

  • Isabela:
    • (To a male Hawke) Oh it is. Trust me.
    • (To a female Hawke) She likes rogues. Rivaini rogues especially.
  • Fenris: Evidently.
  • Anders: Amazing, isn't it?
  • Merrill: What do they say? Nice things, I bet.
───────
  • Hawke: So what now? You aren't just going to leave, are you?
  • Tallis: (Chuckles) You think I would fit into your merry entourage?

(If Isabela is in the party)

  • Isabela: Let's see... are you possessed? Consorting with demons? A pathological liar?

(If Aveline is also in the party)

  • Aveline: I am none of those things.
  • Isabela: Can you run five miles carrying a cow over your head?
  • Aveline: That's better.
  • Tallis: I have six toes on my left foot.
  • Isabela: Eh, close enough.
───────

(If Hawke flirted with Tallis and their romantic interest is in the party)

  • Hawke: That's what you do for a friend.
  • Tallis: I can honestly say I'm a little jealous of you right now.
  • (Variously:)
    • Isabela: Well, there's a lot of Hawke to go around. You just have to ask me nicely.
    • Merrill: Oh, don't be jealous! Well... alright, be a little jealous.
    • Fenris: Just keep your distance.
    • Anders: Jealousy never hurt anyone... much.
  • Tallis: Hmm. (Sighs)
