* PragmaticVillainy: He completely ''hates'' [[ForTheEvulz the idea of just being a bastard for the sake of it]]. Instead, he prefers to take actions that will best benefit his reputation ''and'' keep his subjects alive and loyal. He is, on the whole, a surprisingly humanly ambitious man who just happens to be the big bad.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Surprisingly enough, he actually ''is'' willing to listen to reason and take the words of commoners over nobles if it helps him to further his own ambitions.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Surprisingly enough, he actually ''is'' willing to listen to reason and take the words of commoners over nobles if it helps him to further his own ambitions. Toward the middle of the game, you could be forgiven for thinking he's a decent guy, until his real plans are revealed. He is, on the whole, a surprisingly humanly ambitious man who just happens to be the big bad.

** To terrifying proportions. While clearing the haunted mansion, Dagran recalls her eating about ''216 muffins in one go''. The Japanese version uses ''donburi'' instead of muffins. In hindsight, this is even more food.

* ChastityCouple: His romance with Calista [[spoiler:until the epilogue, where he hugs her, and they kiss briefly when they are wed]]. Especially weird since it's his entire motivation for fighting.



* CovertPervert: Zael isn't exactly a ChasteHero, he has his own little moments. For example, in one of the earlier chapters, you can choose to have Zael examine the bathroom in Syrenne and Mirania's room. He can either walk in and peek on the girls (and get beaten up for it) or he can choose not to go in and listen to a particularly fan-servicey conversation between Syrenne and "Lisa" (Calista).

* DirtyCoward

to:

* DirtyCowardDirtyCoward: When [[spoiler: the Gurak invade, he runs at the sight of three of them, leaving Zael and Calista (his fiancée!) behind. He later claims to have killed over a hundred Gurak, [[HeKnowsTooMuch and imprisons anyone who claims otherwise]]]].

* CanonSue: Invoked, as the whole point of her character is to deconstruct the MarySue archetype. Despite having great power at her disposal, she doesn't have the spine to stop her uncle. When Zael falls in love with her and starts working so that they can be together, she tries pushing him away so that he won't get hurt and [[GoneHorriblyWrong he just gets]] ''[[GoneHorriblyWrong more]]'' [[GoneHorriblyWrong motivated to achieve his goal]]. Incredible things happen around her but, because she's a Grade-A DoomMagnet, they're all ''horrible'' and usually entail her or the people she loves getting hurt, captured, or both... Basically, her life is utterly craptacular ''because'' it has so many Sueish elements. Furthermore, [[GenreSavvy she's fully aware of it too]]. This leads to a heart-to-heart with Syrenne during the finale where she expresses envy for the mercenaries, who became strong on their own terms and got CharacterDevelopment, while the plot was demanding that she be everyone's UnwittingPawn.

* DarkIsNotEvil: He is by far the "edgiest"-looking mercenary and gets many scenes that underline just how far he's willing to go to make their dream come true. Despite all this, he's still a FatherToHisMen.
** DarkIsEvil: But, as stated before, he's more of a ''protagonist'' than a true hero.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: He is fully aware that ''VideoGame/TheLastStory'' is a WorldHalfEmpty and he doesn't give two shits about it, the people in it or what they're fighting for. All he wants is to give his mercs the best life he can through whatever means necessary.

* TeamDad
* [[UselessUsefulSpell Useless Useful Sword]]: The sword that Dagran wears on his belt was bought when he and Zael were young. Turns out that it was pretty useless as a weapon, so Dagran simply wears it as a reminder of his and Zael's dream. After the Epilogue, Zael (and Dagran in NewGamePlus) can use that sword. It starts out horrifically weak, but when upgraded properly, it becomes an InfinityPlusOneSword.
