Interspecies relationships are possible, but frequently frowned upon by most societies. The fertility rate between two parents of different race are very low compared to that of the same race. In particular, elves are bound only to produce elven children with their own kind because their offspring with a human would be [[Elf-blooded]], appearing physically human. Similarly this also happens with dwarves. Subsequently, elves mating with humans is considered traitorous by the rest of their kind and any elf who conceives a child with a human risks expulsion from their community.<ref name="half-races">{{BWF|author=[[David Gaider]]|date=January 9, 2010|title=Where are the half-races?|url=https://web.archive.org/web/20160731183409/https://forum.bioware.com/topic/44360-where-are-the-half-races/page-2#entry574687|access=June 10, 2014}}</ref>

A child between a dwarf and a human is a half-dwarf, which would be taller than dwarves but shorter than humans. Such children are extremely rare, as dwarves are comparatively few in number and those living underground are reclusive to outsiders; mating with other species would bring great shame to the dwarf as well as their family because of the social stigma. In addition, the dwarven fertility rate is very low due to the close proximity to the [[darkspawn]] taint for many generations.<ref name="half-races"/>

Nobody in Thedas has any idea what a qunari half-breed might look like, since the Tamassrans prohibit interspecies mating among qunari and there is no evidence of interbreeding between [[Tal-Vashoth]] and other races. However, there appears to be no taboo against non-procreative sex with non-qunari.
