FIGHT LIKE A...GENDER OF YOUR CHOOSING
Whereas each DA:O let you play through the same two-year period as a different character, DAII introduces only a single playable character: Hawke, a fighting champion who rises to power. A la Mass Effect's Commander Shepard, you can customize Hawke's gender and appearance, and play him/her as any of the human classes (rogue, mage, etc.). We'll say right now: lady-Hawke has nice eyes...but she'll also whoop that ass. Wifey!
