No takers?

That's perfectly alright. Mustaches can be quite intimidating.

"Better to be in the fold than out in the wilds? For a sheep, that is."

"Selfish, I suppose. Not to want to spend my entire life screaming on the inside."

"Living a lie... it festers inside you, like poison. You have to fight for what's in your heart."

Dorian: Solas, have I offended you?
Solas: If you have, why would it concern you?
Dorian: Because we're here working together for a common cause, and because I respect your abilities.

Cole: You hold him so tightly. You let it keep hurting, because you think hurting is who you are. Why would you do that?
Dorian: Can someone tell him to stop? Banish him back to the Fade or something?

Iron Bull: You doing all right, Dorian? I know family stuff can be rough.
Dorian: What would you know about it? True Qunari don't have families.
Iron Bull: Finding out you don't fit in with the people who raised you?
Iron Bull: Having to walk away from everything you grew up with, knowing you've disappointed the ones who loved you?
Iron Bull: I might know a bit. Takes a tough man to do it, too. So good on you.
Mustachioed Fellow is undeniably Fi.

Cole: Your clothes look like the Fade, Dorian.
Dorian: The stuff of dreams? An explosion of color and sensation wrapped in an enigma?
Cole: It's shiny.

Solas: Your magical skill is impressive, Dorian.
Dorian: You're not the first to say so.
Solas: Would you not conserve magical energy with a less... flashy... style, however?
Dorian: Yes, and I'd live longer if I only ate rice and boiled vegetables, but that's just as unlikely.
Mustachioed Fellow likes to satisfy his senses.

Blackwall: It’s interesting watching you, Dorian. The way you carry yourself when you use magic.
Dorian: I am very good at the whole magic thing.
Blackwall: No, it’s not that. You find joy in it, not shame. And it shows.
Dorian: Why be ashamed? Power should be respected, not swept under the carpet.
Blackwall: Something we “southerners” need to learn, perhaps?
Dorian: Maybe you’re not a complete moron.
Blackwall: We were having a moment, and now you’ve ruined it.

Solas: I notice you used a nullification enchantment combined with an offensive attack.
Dorian: The nullification disrupts any ambient magic lying about. Things then burn hotter.
Solas: Don't you then waste an inordinate amount of magic overcoming your own nullification?
Dorian: Ah, no. I warp the Veil slightly to affect distance between the spells.
Solas: Of course. Have you considering snapping the Veil-warp to enhance the relative energy?
Dorian: Like cracking a whip? Yes, tried it once. Made my teeth taste funny.
Sera: Two of you doesn't make this normal!
Mustachioed Fellow is the arrogant thinking type. Not mentioned: he helped create the theory of time magic.

Dorian: Varric, I want a new nickname.
Varric: What's wrong with sparkler? Not colorful enough for you?
Dorian: You must know me better now. Or does the moniker you gave me five minutes after we met still apply?
Varric: I have the eyes of a story teller. It's a gift.
Dorian: So, I'm a bit of light you stick in a window sill to impress passersby? All flash, no heat? Hmm... that's actually pretty clever.
Varric: See? Embrace your place in the universe, Sparkler.

Iron Bull: Dorian’s a sweet guy. He’s gentle, and he cares under all that bluster.
All flash, no heat.

He spends his free time at the library conducting research.

His greatest fear is falling to temptation. Game doesn't say what kind of temptation.


  • He's extroverted
  • He's a thinker, Te
  • He has no problem creating complex theories & has a vision of the future, Ni
  • He likes the finer things in life, Se
  • He's obviously Fi

I'll go with ENTJ.
