* DeliciousDistraction: Tossing things into the water will distract the Kaernk, as it moves to anything that makes a splash. Throwing corpse parts will distract it from you longer, as the Kaernk will spend a few seconds eating them.
* EliteMooks: There are two types of Kaernk: a smaller one that can be avoided by staying out of the water, and a larger variant that can grab you from the tables or crates you jump on.
* InvincibleMinorMinion: Inverted, as the smaller Kaernk can be killed by smashing a large crate or barrel on top of it, leaving only its yellowish blood in the water.
* {{Invisibility}}: The splashes it makes are the only way to see where it is.

* MurderTheHypoteneuse: He never actually got the chance to do so, but he wanted to kill Basile and Malo out of jealousy, so he could have Justine for himself.

Added DiffLines:

* AssholeVictim: If the letters from Alois are to be believed, he wasn't a very nice guy to begin with.

Added DiffLines:

* CrazyJealousGuy: Was ''extremely'' jealous of Justine's relationships with Basile and Malo, to the point that he wanted to murder them both, and happily helped Justine drug and torture him. To be fair, though, he probably at least had [[BastardBoyfriend very good reasons for]] [[{{Jerkass}} disliking Basile]].

Added DiffLines:

* BastardBoyfriend: It is implied that he was this even ''before'' Justine tortured and mutilated him. [[spoiler: His mistreatment of her made Aloïs hate him so much that he actively helped her torture him.]]

* AmbiguouslyEvil: Agrippa's moral stance is unclear at best, highly dubious at worst. While he readily helps Daniel, he also used to be a friend of Alexander for some time. Whether he was aware of all of Alexander's felonies is unclear, yet he once [[DissonantSerenity casually]] remarks that [[spoiler:the shards of a broken orb make [[TortureTechnician great tools for torture]]: "They practically ''leak'' madness! Which is quite useful, I understand."]]

Added DiffLines:

* LifeOrLimbDecision: Played with. [[spoiler:Agrippa begs Daniel to create a tonic that would allow him to survive [[LosingYourHead decapitation]] and then to effectively behead him (he even exclaims: "Quickly! [[OffWithHisHead Off with the head!]]"). That being said, trapped as he is and utterly forsaken by Alexander, who intends to cross the interdimensional portal and leave this world for another one, Agrippa has [[NothingLeftToDoButDie very little to lose]]. Still he entrusts Daniel with his own head, and the player may very well feed Agrippa the tonic, cut off his head and then either let Alexander cross the portal or topple the pillars and prevent the portal from ever opening. Either way, Agrippa presumably does not survive.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: [[spoiler:As a result of Alexander's training into the [[TortureTechnician art of torture]] and [[ManipulativeBastard ongoing psychological manipulation]], Daniel ends up easily washing his hands and what's more, pre-emptively as he and Alexander go abduct the Zimmermans, a family of peasants near Castle Brennenburg, allegedly to complete the banishing ritual for the Shadow. Also a KickTheDog moment as Daniel has reached the point where he does not care anymore whether his victims are criminals or innocent. Highlighted in Daniel's last sentence during the hallucinatory flashback: "We should have [[WeHaveReserves more than enough]] prisoners to finish the ritual now."]]

--> '''Baron Alexander''': (''While a torture victim pleads innocence and for his life'') He is one of the wicked. Don't pay his lies any attention. [...] He set a man on fire. [...] We're dealing with [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Dehumanization monsters]] here.
* HidingBehindReligion: In one of his diary entries, Daniel says he is "thankful for God [[spoiler:sending these [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Dehumanization monsters]] our way as they will serve as the instruments of my salvation," referring to the prisoners whom Alexander assures Daniel [[PayEvilUntoEvil are all criminals and therefore may be freely tortured]] in order to harvest vitae.]]

* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: Or rather mercilessly perform vivisection on it with a dull saw and, in lieu of a eulogy, merely remark "What a mess." Ironically, the player audibly witnesses this gruesome scene in the Study long before learning about Alexander's habit of torturing humans.]]
