Solas finally got his introduction - you can read about him here: Solas (the interview with his writer isn't officially "up" yet but it's in the Twitter thread at the forums is ready!).

Also, a great post from Matt Rhodes in the Solas thread on the Bioware Forums about the characters in general:

"For those who are interested, we have been very calculated when it comes to engineering our characters imperfections. The development process has a built in erosion mechanism: many stakeholders in many review meetings tend to trim away a characters humanizing flaws and oddities, leaving little more than "pretty" and "safe" . Strip and shave most game characters today and you'd be hard pressed to tell most of them apart. We've worked very hard on Inquisition to safeguard our characters from this erosion process. We want to give them more identity than just their clothes, hairstyle and makeup. It's our hope that after you've spent some time with them, our character's will be as inseparable from their quirks, flaws and oddities as your own friends and family are from theirs."
