Once you picked your race, class and a difficulty level, it is time to customize the appearance of your character. The appearance creator offers you an abundance of options. You can either pick one of the ready-made faces or customize the one that you pick, starting with the shape of the head, complexion, through hairstyle and one of the two available voice schemes. Then, you need to pick the looks of the individual elements: nose, ears, eyes... all of these can be adjusted using the bars and the system of axes to adjust the distance/width, height/length. Additionally, you can add tattoos to your character's face (which are obligatory in case of elves), scars and, in case of the qunari - set the style of the horns. Finally, for both male and female characters, you can choose make-up using the color palette. Once you accept the changes, they are irreversible. Finally, you need to choose the name of your character. Once this is done, you start the proper game.
