Prolonged exposure to red lyrium induces gradual psychological and physical change, though not as quickly as direct consumption will[1]. Depending on its quantity, an individual may endure several years of exposure to red lyrium without any perceivable effect, as was the case with Meredith Stannard, Knight-Commander of Kirkwall. It is possible that Meredith's immense willpower and Templar training also hindered the speed at which her red lyrium corrupted her, though likely she might have been unaware of it.

  1. During the future segment of In Hushed Whispers, if Inquisitor inquires Fiona if it's red lyrium growing out of her body, she will respond, "The longer you're near it... eventually... you become this," implying that one needn't consume red lyrium to physically transform.
