Carver will have one of several possible facial structures, depending on which preset the player chooses for their Hawke at character creation. Also, his skin tone will always be matched with the chosen Hawke's. On the other hand, his hair will always be black, in order to prevent an hypothetical clash of dark skin and light hair.
Dragon Age 2
Carver may not even make it past the escape from Lothering
after it's being attacked by the Darkspawn
, by being beaten down by an Ogre, should the player's class be a Warrior or Rogue. If the player is a Mage, Carver and Hawke
's sister, Bethany
, will die instead in the same fashion.
From the outset, Carver is also aligned towards having a Rivalry towards Hawke.
