*{{Determinator}}: He's been trying for years to put together the resources for an mission to find Atlantis and validate his grandfather's theories despite everyone in Academia treating him like a kook and sabotaging him.

* BadassPrincess: In a brief yet oh-so-satisfying action scene in which she flips one of Rourke's gas-mask mooks over her head and into the drink when he pulls her out by the hair, [[GroinAttack knees a guy in the crotch]], physically ''lifting'' him off his feet! Bashes another in the skull with the butt of his buddy's rifle while trying to wrench it free from its owner, and knocks another soldier to the ground while drawing her knife to dispatch him. Even better when she showcases skills as a hunter/gatherer and is implied to have dealt lethally with any explorers encroaching on Atlantean boarders for thousands of years.

* HateSink: Once he's revealed to be the villain, Rourke goes out of his way to become as unlikable and despicable as possible, [[EvilIsPetty with the flimsiest of excuses]], [[StupidEvil even when its not wise to do so]], and has the most transparent of motives, all while acting like an [[SmugSnake insufferable jackass who thinks he knows better]]. His bad sense of humor is tasteless, he is completely unreasonable, and his actions and attitude are so repulsive that most of the cast immediately turn on him. And he didn't hesitate to throw Helga off the blimp with very little benefit.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Amusingly, she is never actually seen repairing anything mechanical ''on-screen'' (the most technical work she is shown doing is turning a valve and tightening a nut, tasks pretty much anyone with with a pair of functioning hands and a wrench can accomplish, and the one time her set of skills is directly needed, Milo ends up doing the job instead) meaning that her status as a great mechanic ends up being somewhat of an InformedAbility.
