* WouldHitAGirl: Delta has to defeat a number of Big Sisters during the game. Although they look and sound monstrous, they are still human women who have been mutated.

* HeroicMime: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since Big Daddies can't speak.

to:

* HeroicMime: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since Big Daddies can't speak. He is not voiceless, however, as he will grunt in pain or when jumping.



* PayEvilUntoEvil: [[spoiler:If he chooses to kill Grace Holloway, Stanley Poole, and Gilbert Alexander]].

* WouldHurtAChild: If Delta harvests The Little Sisters.

to:

* WouldHurtAChild: If Delta harvests The Little Sisters. Also averted as, with the first game, it is impossible for Delta to physically harm any of the Little Sisters accompanying their Big Daddies.



* AbusiveParent: From the opening cutscene, it's plainly obvious that Sofia cares nothing for Eleanor, only for how she can be used to further her own plans. Of particular note is the way she says "[Eleanor] is ''mine''," the emphasis treating Eleanor more like an object than a person. Case in point, one audio log has her explain how Elenor isn't her child but a project of hers, she even left her daughter with a patient of hers to build on her utopia and when she found out that her child became a Little Sister, she is more annoyed than sad.

** Oddly, however, a later audio log has Eleanor [[spoiler: emotionally expressing regret at the possibility of having to kill Eleanor]].



* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains The Noble type]]: he was involved in a lot of the more disturbing experiments and schemes run in Rapture, including the development of the Big Daddies, but he had [[EvenEvilHasStandards several lines he refused to cross]] and genuinely wants Delta to succeed in his mission to rescue Eleanor- especially since it will mean he gains access to technology he can sell on the surface. In a sense he's what Frank Fontaine would be like if he had some shred of morality [[spoiler:and ''weren't'' a sleazy conman]].

* DisappearedDad: We hear nothing about Eleanor's biological father and the circumstances of her conception and birth. This is odd because a woman like Dr Lamb being a single parent in 1950s society is unlikely to have gone unremarked.

This is odd because a woman like Dr Lamb being a single parent in 1950s society is unlikely to have gone unremarked. For her part, Eleanor looks upon Subject Delta as her replacement father figure, even going so far as to calling him Father.



* EvilBrit: [[spoiler:Becomes one in the "bad" endings.]] Otherwise, she presents an {{Aversion}} of this trope, especially when compared to the examples provided by her mother and Dr Alexander.

(It should be noted that the voice actress is actually Irish, but modulates her accent closer to British to be consistent with Sofia's voice.)



* SignificantWardrobeShift: [[spoiler: She wears a simple white dress for most of her onscreen appearances, but near the end of the game, she puts on a Big Sister suit that's white in color, as opposed to the dark suits the Big Sisters you've fought throughout the game wear, to symbolize that she is ''not'' her mother's lab rat anymore.]]

Also, unlike the other Big Sisters, she retains her normal human proportions.]]

The second of two characters available from the ''Zigo & Blanche'' DLC pack. A French actress who came to Rapture to captivate a new audience. When the theaters closed after the riots on New Year's Eve of 1959, she grew depressed and turned to ADAM abuse to cope.

The second of two characters available from the ''Zigo & Blanche'' DLC pack. A French actress who came to Rapture to captivate a new audience. When the theaters closed after the riots on New Year's Eve of 1959, she grew depressed and turned to ADAM abuse to cope. When the war starts, she begins taking part in it, finding it more enjoyable than the stage.


Added DiffLines:

* BloodKnight: She finds fighting in the war exciting, much more exciting than the theater.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotNice: She kicks plenty of ass as a Big Sister regardless of your decisions and [[spoiler: in one ending where she saves her mother, she admits that she's not doing it out of kindness or love, but [[CruelMercy because she wants to Sofia to live with the knowledge that everything she worked for was for nothing.]]]]

A brilliant mathematician, Porter worked for the allies in London during World War II, losing his wife Pearl to the German bombings. He accepted Andrew Ryan's offer to work in Rapture, building The Thinker, the ultimate processing machine, which he hoped to use to resurrect his dead wife. He was betrayed by his partner Reed Wahl and imprisoned in Persephone, but eventually escaped and teamed up with Dr. Tenenbaum and Subject Sigma to liberate The Thinker and flee Rapture. Subject Sigma is eventually revealed to be Porter, with the one guiding the player actually being The Thinker.

The computer created by Reed Wahl and Charles Milton Porter in Minerva's Den. It is a perfect Artificial Intelligence, maintaining the automated systems of Rapture and running Minerva's Den on its own. Porter, Tenenbaum, and Sigma want it in order to cure ADAM sickness. Unfortunately Wahl controls it, and desires to use it to crack the perfect predictive equation. It is sentient, and its true allegiance is unknown. [[spoiler:It helps Sigma and Tenenbaum, by impersonating Porter while betraying Wahl.]]

* TheCorrupter: Potentially. [[spoiler:Harvesting Little Sisters and killing the relevant [=NPCs=] will condition Eleanor to believe such behaviour is perfectly natural, and that her own survival justifies anything. She will extract your ADAM to make you a part of her (forcibly if you did not save at least one Little Sister) and vow the world will never see the destruction she will unleash coming.]]



* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Just as only Eleanor can keep you alive, so is your coming for her the only thing that allows her to maintain hope of a better tomorrow. In the end, you double as one of two other roles...

Eleanor even lampshades this by calling Delta her [[TheConscience conscience]], and extracts his ADAM so he can be with her forever.]]

* ShadowArchetype: Her very existence in Rapture scares the pants off of Ryan, because she represents everything he built Rapture to escape from. He has to be talked down from sending her straight to jail when he figures out who she really is.
