Blackwall/Inquisitor is the canonically het pairing of Blackwall and The Inquisitor from Dragon Age: Inquisition.


In Dragon Age: Inquisition, Blackwall is a Grey Warden who joins the Inquisition, and is a potential romance option for female Inquisitors of all races.



Blackwall/Inqusitor is a far less popular ship for female Inquisitors than Cullen/Inquisitor and Solas/Inquisitor. However, it is the most popular ship for female dwarf Inquisitors and fairly popular for female Qunari Inquisitors, likely because the only other male romance option for female Inquisitors of these races in the game is Iron Bull, and some find the BDSM aspects of his romance unappealing.

Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Age Difference: Fanworks sometimes emphasize the age difference between Blackwall and the Inquisitor.
  • Height Difference: Blackwall/Cadash and Blackwall/Adaar fanworks often emphasize their significant height difference.
  • Redemption: Many fanworks focus on the impact of the revelation of Blackwall's past misdeeds on his relationship with the Inquisitor.
