* InTheBlood: Sydney has inherited her extreme amounts of {{badass}} badass from both her parents; she has all of Irina's fiery temper and unpredictability, but tempered by Jack's pragmatism and ability to forgive.



* {{Badass}}: Respected by absolutely ''everyone'' as a man not to be screwed around with. Sydney in particular becomes rather ''giddy'' (compared to her usual father-daughter angst) when she sees him in action for the first time.



* {{Badass}}: While he started out as mostly a NonActionGuy, he eventually proves that he's a capable agent of almost Sydney's caliber in the field.



* {{Badass}}: The guy learns enough about SD-6 on his own to pose a serious threat to them, endures torture numerous times, and kills a ''trained assassin'' with his ''bare hands'' in combat. He's a ''news reporter''.



%%* {{Badass}}



* {{Badass}}: He single-handedly destroys FTL, whom the Alliance, K-Directorate ''and'' the CIA have been trying to shut down for ''decades''.

Due to the [[HeelFaceTurn insanely ambiguous]] [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder nature of every and all characters involved]], they will simply be listed under very broad "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys - some more, some less obvious than others.

* GenreSavvy: In "Echoes," he sees right through Michael and Jack's plot to secretly track him to CRF headquarters despite their careful attempts to ensure that Sark doesn't suspect anything. Just for the heck of it, Julian decides to lead his armed pursuers to an abandoned building in Johannesburg which has absolutely nothing to do with CRF.
