* HiddenDepths: Grayson hides some surprising intelligence behind the foul-mouthed bruiser he projects. Sometimes he proves to be oddly eloquent and aware of literary conventions, and does his own LaymansTerms for Trishka and Ishi's technobabble. He even quotes [[TreasureIsland Fifteen Men on a Deadman's Chest]] in the intro when he rams his ship into the Ulysses. This can be explained by the fact that Special Ops commandos include intelligence in their selection criteria, and Gray was the leader of one such team.

* AxCrazy: A raving sadistic madman to the very core, he is so obviously and dangerously psychopathic that it is truly surprising that he got to lord over an army instead of being locked in a padded cell.

* {{Deconstruction}}[=/=]TakeThat: Can be very easily read of one of the Mall Ninja/12-year old VideoGame/CallOfDuty player crowd. He shows just how the annoying brats would act like in real-life- impratical, insipid, sociopathic, irritating in the extreme, and ''exceedingly moronic''. And it's [[UpToEleven somehow even more annoying than when it happens on Xbox Live]]. He's a blatant sociopath and is treated like exactly that, and outfits his team with weapons he sees as 'cool,' in spite of being far more destructive and sadistic than most militaries would allow, and most of said weapons are horribly impractical. Serrano causes absolutely horrific amounts of destruction and chaos for his own enjoyment with no remorse, and is gleefully laughing while he does it. Even Grayson, who is possibly the most foul-mouthed character in the game besides him is taken aback. The Skillshots system? Those are used to ''earn'' resupplies. If the men don't do well enough, they do not get ammo, and are left to die. Rewarding people for killing enemies in cool ways sounds a lot like COD.

* CardCarryingVillain: He is aware he's a horrible person, and he revels in that fact. He spends most of the game pole-vaulting over the MoralEventHorizon and [[KickTheDog kicking various dogs. [[spoiler: When Triska has a gun in his face, and demands to know if he killed her father, he admits to it and]] ''[[spoiler: laughs in her face.]]''

%%* CameBackWrong: Post surgery.

to:

%%* * CameBackWrong: Post surgery.After the surgery that turned him into a cyborg. It saved his life, but the AI used to patch his brain [[SplitPersonalityTakeover started causing problems]].



* CyberneticsEatYourSoul
** Post-injury. Vaguely justified as since the doc had to use the processor from a nearby robot to fix his brain, its AI is trying to take control, because AIIsACrapshoot. It zig-zags back and forth from there.

%%* DeadpanSnarker

to:

%%* DeadpanSnarker* DeadpanSnarker: It's subdued, but he gives a fair amount of snark in the story. Grayson actually suggests using it to keep his human side in control.



* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: When [[spoiler:Sarrano]] uses [[spoiler:his special leash]] to control him into [[spoiler:trying to kill Grayson. Grayson fights it long enough for Ishi to throw off Sarrano's control.]]
* IOweYouMyLife: The only reason he was following Grayson around at the beginning. [[spoiler:Since Grayson nearly got him killed all over again, Ishi pretty much figures that's the end of ''that'']].
%%* MoralityPet: For Grayson.

%%* * MoralityPet: For Grayson.Functions as one for Grayson, as Grayson's CharacterDevelopment from a bellicose alcoholic to repentant KnightInSourArmor comes about from Gray's desperate need to get his only remaining friend off of Stygia for proper treatment.



%%* {{Sidekick}}

to:

%%* {{Sidekick}}* {{Sidekick}}: Essentially, as he is Grayson's second in command, even while they were still in the Confederate military.

%%* StuffBlowingUp: Rell's specialty.
%%* ThoseTwoGuys
%%* WeHardlyKnewYe

to:

%%* * PoisonousFriend: Rell to Grayson.
%%*
Grayson, as Rell is more accepting and nurtures the distinctly negative aspects of Grayson's character.
*
StuffBlowingUp: Rell's specialty.
%%* ThoseTwoGuys
%%* WeHardlyKnewYe
Rell was an explosives' expert while in the Confederacy.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Their relationship with each other. But, given that they are both killed early on in the game, we don't get to see much of it.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: They both die in the first twenty minutes of the game.



* GeneralRipper

to:

* GeneralRipperGeneralRipper: He is ''not'' someone you want directing you into battle. Operation Anarchy, for instance, where he employed the Skillshot counter to determine whether or not a dropkit would resupply the soldiers using them: If the soldiers didn't perform well, they were not resupplied, which is a death sentence on a place like [[DeathWorld Stygia]].



PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Makes frequent misogynistic statements towards Trishka and cracks wise about Ishi being of Asian descent more than once.
