On the official Dragon Age website Bioware has added a "Creatures" section to their Dragon Age world information. Only one creature, the Hurlock, is profiled right now, with more to come later.
Taller than their shorter genlock cousins, the hurlocks are roughly of human size but are possessed with considerable strength and constitution. The shock troop of the darkspawn, a single berserking hurlock can often be a match for numerous opponents at once. They are known to adorn themselves with roughly-carved tattoos to keep track of their kills and deeds, though it is unknown whether or not there is a uniform standard to these markings.You can also check out some concept art and animations here too.
Hurlocks known as "Emissaries" have also been known to appear during a Blight: these darkspawn are the only ones recorded as being capable of human speech and are often capable of employing magic spells.
