* DeathSeeker: Elizabeth suffers a major case of BreakTheCutie throughout the course of ''Infinite'', eventually flat out telling Booker that she'd rather have him provide a MercyKill for her than go back to the tower.
** It gets progressively worse during ''Burial At Sea: Episode Two'', to the extent that [[spoiler: even Atlas' attempt to torture her for information fails when she taunts him that she's really NotAfraidToDie and that killing her would be doing her a favour.]] During her final confrontation with Atlas, she remains DefiantToTheEnd despite knowing that she's walking to her death, jeering Atlas to simply get on with it.



** ''Burial At Sea'' suggests that [[spoiler: the older Elizabeth in Rapture is the same as from the main game and despite this, somehow continued to exist and retain her memory of the events of ''Infinite''. Additionally, in Episode Two she sets in motion the events that would lead to ''VideoGame/BioShock1'', knowing that she would die but the Little Sisters would be freed.]]

* OppositesAttract: Despire being BirdsOfAFeather, there are subtle differences in their personalities; Rosalind is more serious, while Robert is more of a goofball. Not to mention that, as Rosalind puts it, where she sees ''King Lear'', Robert sees only a blank page -- she is a fatalist, while Robert is more optimistic.

Rosalind is far more intellectual and dispassionate, while Robert is more moral and idealistic.

* DummiedOut: Was removed from the game despite being a major character in the trailers. The citizens still talk about him, so most likely he is just behind the scenes.

* InvincibleVillain: Is immune to everything short of [[spoiler: water pressure, and according to Elizabeth there is ''no'' timeline where the Songbird failed to kill Booker. Only by transporting him to Rapture does he finally die.]]

** "Booker" - one who makes and binds books. "[=DeWitt=]" - of white. A blank book. Appropriate for a video game protagonist. [[spoiler:And for the umpteen versions of himself -- not just one blank page, but an entire book of them]].

Added DiffLines:

* NecessaryEvil: In a strange way, his position in Columbia. While Comstock is the beckon of hope and virtue to the people, he allowed Fink to oversee the unpleasant parts of life in the city and the day-to-day dirtiness that comes with keeping the city afloat (One Voxophone implied Fink first started taking aboard a servant-class to address civil unrest at Columbia not being as heavenly as promised). Having Fink handle these things means Comstock can believe himself to be uninvovled in the suffering it causes. Fink even comes to realize this in a Voxophone, pointing out that he's indispensable because he lets Comstock hold onto a clean conscience.


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticVillainy: Compared to Comstock's stance as a VisionaryVillain. While hardly anyone's idea of a saint, Fink is ultimately just a selfish, unscrupulous man whose political connections with Comstock gave him the means to run certain areas of Columbia like his own private fiefdom. His only goals are to further his own wealth at the expense of others. Even ''he'' likely would've been horrified by [[spoiler: Comstock's plans for Columbia, and what it would mean for the people living below them.]]

* MoralMyopia: The way his religion works. It's all a giant coping mechanism to keep himself from feeling guilt for his past. While forgiveness in Christian traditions typically means "Sin no more," inspiring people to do better, Comstock's religion tells him "You cannot sin."
