We also know that Nathaniel Howe squired in the Free Marches for eight years prior to returning for the events of Awakening and specifically spent at least one year in Kirkwall. Assuming he spent a good portion of his adolescent and young adult years there, we can see that life in the Free Marches returned this arl’s son to Ferelden as a somewhat cold but fiercely competent warrior. It took four of the Vigil’s guards to subdue him, he is fit enough both physically and mentally to survive the Joining and is strong enough to keep step with the Warden Commander in the quest to defeat the Mother.
The Free Marches show that life there is not going to be easy for Hawke and that the potential for both danger and adventure is high. The Marches themselves are an excellent place to mold Hawke into a warrior and a man capable of taking on heroics beyond that of normal men.
Well, it's a well known fact that RPGs are about genociding all lifeforms that are hostile, have loot or give XP when killed so I think that when it comes to a nice darkspawn genocide Commander Hawke looks like he can get shit done beyond the means of mortal men.
