* SirSwearsALot: The man's certainly fond of using... colorful language, to say the least.



* TakenForGranite: MadArtist Sander Cohen doesn't actually petrify people, but he does the next best thing by covering their bodies in plaster and posing them. Almost everyone in his domain is either a dead statue, or a person ''pretending'' to be a statue. One of his "students" took to using his ice powers, rather than plaster, to freeze people in poses.

* AssholeVictim: A smug creature with a low regard for his patients, or should we say test subjects. He rationalizes using up and discarding the Little Sisters for ADAM, likening it to euthanasia. ''Bioshock: Rapture'' shows that he was a functional opioid addict with a fairly arrogantly high opinion of himself even before the collapse of Rapture and his descent into madness.

Long story short, odds are that you won't feel very bad about killing him in whatever gruesome manner you see fit.



* FunctionalAddict: ''Literature/BioShockRapture'' revealed that Steinman had a drug habit on the surface which caused his first hallucinations of "the Goddess". Yup, definitely the guy you want running your medical ward.

* {{Flanderization}}: In the original {{VideoGame/BioShock1}}, Atlas is an affable, friendly and helpful resistance leader trying to help himself and others survive in a decaying city, a far cry from [[spoiler: the vicious, FauxAffablyEvil psychopath barely hiding that he's not who he says he is and not even making an attempt to win Elizabeth over to his side in Burial at Sea Episode 2, resorting almost immediately to blackmail and murder.]]

* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: As shown in ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' in [[DownloadableContent Burial at Sea - Episode 2]], he calls Dr. Yi Suchong a "slant", an offensive term for people of East Asian descent that refers to the slant of their eyes. Of course, [[FairForItsDay he's not vilified for speaking that way]]. And it [[TheSociopath ''is'']] [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Suchong.]]

* TookALevelInJerkass: He's considerably more brash in ''Burial At Sea'' than he is in the original game, considering that it takes place during his time as a revolutionary.

An [[{{Oireland}} Irish]] fisherman who guides Jack over his shortwave radio. He brought his wife and son to Rapture in search of a better life, but is now desperately trying to get them out. He is gradually revealed to be the leader of the Anti-Ryan rebellion. 'Atlas' is later revealed to be a persona adopted by Frank Fontaine, who has been manipulating Jack even before the game begins.

Added DiffLines:

* LoyalToThePosition: His shtick both before and after coming to Rapture. After the Japanese killed everyone in his village, Suchong was left alive because he was willing to extend the same services he offered them to the invading forces. In Rapture, once he finds out Fontaine is dead, he's all too happy to jump ship to Ryan and do the same thing for him instead.
