1. A mage party member first encountered in Dragon Age: Origins-Awakening, he has the best heals in the game. He is like Alistair but not as annoying nor templarish. He likes to randomly flirt with you're female party members, but you can't romance him. His best-friend is some random kitten that you find named Ser-Pounce-Alot. Once you give it to him he will stop behaving like a grown-man and become highly annoying.
2. In Dragon Age 2 Bioware decided to bring Anders back, but unfortunately as an apostate mage who's been possesed by a demon and is a total wack job. SPOILER: He reveals (only while playing as male Hawke) that he likes men. By end-game you will hate him because...well I can't reveal that
