Sex Assigned at Character Creation: A look at Cremisius Aclassi from Dragon Age: Inquisition

Cremisius Aclassi is arguably the first ever positive representation of a transgender character by a mainstream developer. How has he been portrayed by Bioware in contrast to previous portrayals of transgender characters in the history of AAA titles? What position of power and privilege has he been given based on the Dragon Age universe's intersecting systems of class, race and religion? How does this compare to the positioning of the other main characters in the game? What does the conscious decision to position a trans man within the game's world in such a way mean for the future of trans representation in mainstream gaming?
