I was wondering who to pair Tryggvi with, and came to the conclusion there would be none.
But some people liked the idea of him with Dorian. And I figured I could draw some, but now I’ve entertained the idea too much I feel like it’s my canon…
Gandie: Look.Winnit: Simply put, shit hanging from yer ass.Kakky: Shit.
[[MORE]]

The reason why I figured Tryggvi would go alone, was because he’s not one to commit, secondly he’s definatly a topper, and I couldn’t see IB bottoming. Dorian I figured could go either way. But he wouldn’t touch Tryggvi with a ten foot pole, but i got to thinking, Tryggvi has his ways of being overly charming.
I can’t help but imagine that at the end, they will go their separate ways, because Tryggvi isn’t one for long term commitments. 
But after a while, Tryggvi will go to Tevinter and keep an eye on Dorian. Helping him and his cause from the shadows, becoming the Fagin (Oliver Twist) of Tevinter. Using slave children as his little ears and thieves. To aid Dorian. Not letting him know, because he’s better off without such a man like himself anyway.

I’d say Tryggvi is a good guy. I mean he’s not mean… I mean he’s one of those people who’d spend more energy avoiding helping people than it would by helping them. But if you catch him and get him to promise to help, he’ll do it. Not without grumbling curses. 
He’ll spew out many lies to get out of helping you, but if you know him, you know he’s full of it and keep pushing it until he admits defeat. He wishes people well, but would rather not be involved. His primary focus is himself and his needs. So I wouldn’t trust him to have your back in a fight. 
His knowledge about common things and the world and the events around him is rather lacking he doesn’t need to pretend to be stupid there, because he really fucking is. His cognitive empathy is quite high however, yet he wouldn’t let you know that though. He found through his drunken days that people underestimate you quite a bit when you’re in such a state, and you get away with way more. So he’s taken this to heart and his persona and fighting style evolved to match. 
The level of “intelligence” he shows depends on those he is with. Smarter they are, the less smart he has to appear basically. He does this for various reasons. For one he really doesn’t like thinking too much, or plan things, or try to do the smart thing at all. Secondly if the people he work with are smart, he consider them capable enough to figure stuff out on their own so he can sit there with his feet on the table. Yet they are also a bigger threat. So if they think him dumb, and they ever think of turning against him he’ll stand a better chance if they think him an easy target. If his team is forming a bad plan though, he might try and be helpful and throw in information that will either seem a fluke, or in such a manner that they will do the thinking for him.Like, if they are planning an attack in a snowy area, he might start off on one of his “pointless” stories. “I always liked snow, so peaceful, can’t hear much when it falls.” and they’ll realise that sneaking up on a camp when it snows might be a good idea, etc.
If you ask him straight, he won’t lie to you, but he won’t necessarily tell you the entire truth either. He’ll give you an answer he knows you’ll be satisfied with, leaving out all those things you really should have been told.None if this is done with the intention to harm or be cruel to anyone, it’s merely a way for him to get out of trouble and stay alive. Even if he enjoys getting into trouble, just to get out of it.So when I say he’s a good guy, I mean he bears no ill will. He doesn’t judge. 
Inquisition
Seeing as he is now branded with the fade mark, and he is hunted. Sticking to, and being considered useful for the inquisition and not be a complete idiot, is the best thing for him in order to stay alive.Everyone will be given plentiful of opportunity to question why he became the inquisition leader however. He might make up for it with his fighting skills, even with his magical abilities severely lacking he’s good at slicing off heads, but he’ll hold back there too. Because hey, he is now surrounded by many powerful fighters. Best play the game very carefully.
Tryggvi never quite liked the idea others of the inquisition had “turn things back to how they were” he thrives on chaos, it makes him giddy. Going backwards, to him, is absolutely ridiculous. Chaos means things will evolve, and he can’t wait to see what it will bring.But while in the inquisition he’ll see things and experience things that he never has before, he’ll see so many terrible thing in such a larger scale that it will eventually turn him incredibly hateful I think. 
The main character he’s worried about early on in the inquisition will be Solas. He’s a bit too smart. I think those two will eventually get along very well.. After Tryggvi has stopped all his out of character planning, to kill Solas.I think him and Sera will be a menace at the Skyhold.Cole is another problem, hiding things from him when he himself can hide so well, ah… Paranoia.Cullen, such a planner, he pity’s him.IB and Tryggvi shouldn’t be put together really, it’s like Vivienne and Dorian, but instead of words those two would leave far too much chaos. And then drink over it later (Tryggvi with his glass of milk…)
Things may change, but this is some of the stuff I saw in him.

Tryggvi Trevelyan
Human Drunken Master Mage! 
Warning A Long Read
[[MORE]]
Background
He was born to an elven lady of the brothel, as for father he was clearly human but Tryggvi never quite got to the point to understand there even was a need of one, probably still don’t know he’s supposed to have one. 
He never seemed a bright boy, in the sense he never had the patience for books. Adventurous though, curious.  But growing up at the brothel, with folk from various paths of life wandering through, he learned much in which was needed to stay alive in the world. 
This is one of the biggest brothels in Orlais, part of the underbelly of the nation, secrets pour in, tales told, lies woven. The Madame is quite a powerful figure, the hold she and her girls have on quite a numerous nobles and criminals spread far and wide, makes them quite a powerful group by themselves. 
They were all practically his mothers, none more so than the other. His birth mother took a drunken tumble with a customer into the sea and drowned while he was still rather young. Tryggvi, through all of it, didn’t realise she was dead. Figured she like some other mothers/prostitutes left for another brothel or for other various reasons.
In his mind, and from what various customers told him, he was the luckiest person alive to have as many “mothers” as he did. The one he liked the most was the Madame, she might not have given him much open love and attention, but she gave him sweets once in a while for good behaviour, always told him to not let it get to his head that she cared.
When he reached puberty, he was shown to be a mage. The ladies of the brothel used their… fine powers of persuasion.. towards templar customers to learn how to best hide and protect him.They tried to teach the boy magic through books they had procured, they soon learned it was out of their league.
One day while he was practising the martial side of a mage, a Templar came across the scene. Thinking the boy was pretending to be a chevalier, he decided to show him some moves as he himself had once been one. He took a liking to the boy, and came back frequently to train him. 
Tryggvi’s “moms” tried to keep the boy away from the Templar, but Tryggvi had gotten the taste of spear fighting. Eventually he’d always have one of them with him for practice.
Ser Gevardine started to suspect there was something about the boy that the whores didn’t want him to know. Seeing them giving him a grim stare, each and everyone of them. A dagger close at hand… So he casually went about and used holy smite on the boy one day, and when Tryggvi collapsed the templar knew. The prostitute started screaming for help, and a shitstorm brewed towards the Templar. If this had been a son of a Noble, the Noble would have to let him go when found out, because their title and position so fragile to reputation. If a commoner, there was little choice. But this was a different situation, and the Templar figured that trying to drag that boy to the Circle would not be easy. 
He never reported it, but returned on another occasion with a mage. Thinking, for now, the best option was to keep an eye on the boy while making sure he’ll be capable to defend himself from any attempts by demons.
Years later, when Tryggvi was 17, the Knight Commander learns about the boy, but before the Madam is forced to break out her guns, he vanishes with a spear in his hands. 



Personality
He seems very much like a drunkard, often inappropriate expressions, or lack thereof where there ought to be some, which can be very unnerving. Seeming absent minded and daft, but will surprise you on various occasions which leaves you wondering if he’s just playing you. He can come across as very dumb, as things that may seem common knowledge, he won’t know. He lived in the capital of Orlais for years, doesn’t know the Capital of Orlais…He is however bright enough where it counts. He’s got a knack of staying alive, or getting out of the worst of situations. That turns out to become a challenge when pulled into the Inquisition, because now he’s got to keep other’s alive as well. Because he’s used to being alone, and he’s also got a knack of getting himself into trouble. He will always give off the impression that he’s dumber than he really is."Always better to be underestimated than overestimated."
He was a big drunk, but after a drunken bet that lead him into Tevinter, he stopped. I imagine some slavers use those “dog catching noose rod things” hence the scars on his neck.
Tryggvi looooves women, simply adores them. Don’t quite know what to do with them however, but loves them still. You could say he’s hetero asexual, and gay.
Vivienne reminds him a lot of the Madame, she doesn’t quite like that comparison, but still.
I imagine he always favoured fighting with a spear or halberds, and Vivienne didn’t tolerate any of that. He’s a mage, he better learn how to properly use those gifts. So she sort of makes him her apprentice, though agonising. 
He has a thing for elves, an elf should be hugged or squeezed and cuddled with. It takes a lot of mental effort not to squeeze Solas and Sera.Scared shitless of Cole though.

Varric "So in order to get the family tree down here, in case your history is hiding some jucy stuff, what was your mother’s name?"
Tryggvi "Hmm, Sarah, Lillian, Beatrice, Susanne, Celice,  Morgana, Mathilda, Hilda, Gertrud, Julia, Rita-"
Varric "She couldn’t quite figure which name to keep eh? Hah."
Tryggvi "Which one?"
Varric "Say what?"
Tryggvi "Beatrice changed her name each month i think, The great bosum of Orlai, Feisty Foul Fiddle, Bum ala rouge, were some"
Varric "Tryggvi you beast! I’m not talking about the fine ladies of the night that you’ve slept with! Haha.."
Tryggvi "I slept with all my mums you twit."
Varric “Uhhhh…. Tryggvi… I… You lost me there.”
Tryggvi “It wasn’t like there was a bed for me”
Varric "Maker’s breath boy, that explains nothing!”


Tryggvi is well aware of what Varric is asking…

He will always give off the impression that he’s dumber than he really is."Always better to be underestimated than overestimated."
He was a big drunk, but after a drunken bet that lead him into Tevinter, he stopped. I imagine some slavers use those “dog catching noose rod things” hence the scars on his neck.
Tryggvi looooves women, simply adores them. Don’t quite know what to do with them however, but loves them still. You could say he’s hetero asexual, and gay.
Vivienne reminds him a lot of the Madame, she doesn’t quite like that comparison, but still.
I imagine he always favoured fighting with a spear or halberds, and Vivienne didn’t tolerate any of that. He’s a mage, he better learn how to properly use those gifts. So she sort of makes him her apprentice, though agonising. 
He has a thing for elves, an elf should be hugged or squeezed and cuddled with. It takes a lot of mental effort not to squeeze Solas and Sera.Scared shitless of Cole though.

Varric "So in order to get the family tree down here, in case your history is hiding some jucy stuff, what was your mother’s name?"
Tryggvi "Hmm, Sarah, Lillian, Beatrice, Susanne, Celice,  Morgana, Mathilda, Hilda, Gertrud, Julia, Rita-"
Varric "She couldn’t quite figure which name to keep eh? Hah."
Tryggvi "Which one?"
Varric "Say what?"
Tryggvi "Beatrice changed her name each month i think, The great bosum of Orlai, Feisty Foul Fiddle, Bum ala rouge, were some"
Varric "Tryggvi you beast! I’m not talking about the fine ladies of the night that you’ve slept with! Haha.."
Tryggvi "I slept with all my mums you twit."
Varric “Uhhhh…. Tryggvi… I… You lost me there.”
Tryggvi “It wasn’t like there was a bed for me”
Varric "Maker’s breath boy, that explains nothing!”


Tryggvi is well aware of what Varric is asking…
