Depending on the individual, someone can endure years of exposure without any perceivable effect, as is the case with [[Meredith Stannard]]<ref>[[Meredith Stannard|Meredith]] possessed the [[Lyrium idol|red lyrium idol]] for some years, as [[Bartrand Tethras|Bartrand]] can confess in ''[[Family Matter]]'' that he sold it to her some time before or during Act 2, years before Act 3</ref>, or be largely immune to its debilitating effects so long as they don't go into withdrawal, as with [[Raleigh Samson]]<ref>In his [[Sit in Judgment|judgment]], [[Raleigh Samson|Samson]] warns the [[The Inquisitor|Inquisitor]] if exiled into the wilderness that he'll eventually go mad without any red lyrium and might harm innocents</ref>. However, both of these individuals were [[Templar Order|Templars]], and it's possible that their immense willpower, Templar training, and previous experience with lyrium slowed the speed at which the red lyrium corrupted them. Further compounding this, the [[Seekers of Truth]] have shown to be largely immune as well, though it can still poison them if ingested in fatal amounts<ref>As was the case with [[Daniel]], shown in ''[[Promise of Destruction]]''</ref>.

When templars ingest red lyrium, it improves their powers, grants them new ones, and pushes their strength to superhuman levels<ref>[[Codex entry: Red Templars]]</ref>. Even the average red templar outclasses a normal man. A few red templars can fight a group several times their number to a standstill<ref>[[Codex entry: Red Templar Foot Soldier]]</ref>, and shield bearers swing full metal tower shields with ease<ref>[[Codex entry: Red Templar Guardsman]]</ref>. In perhaps the most extreme case, a [[Raleigh Samson|specific red templar]] said he could march for days without rest and break a man like kindling<ref>[[Codex entry: New Orders]]</ref>.
