In Dragon Age: Until We Sleep we meet her again where it is revealed that she is a transwoman and Dragon Age‘s first actual transgender character (as distinct from the drag queen characterSerendipity).

Within the video game series, Maevaris only appears in Heroes of Dragon Age, a freemium game released for iOS and Android devices. This game does not mention that Maevaris is a transwoman, however, which is why she is listed under “Trans- Vague” here.
