* GenreBlind: Every single time he makes up a seemingly important task to keep him out of the fighting it ends up being actually important and more dangerous than whatever he's avoiding. He never spots the pattern.



* MustHaveCaffeine: He once fought his way half-way around an Ork occupied planet to get to the nearest Tanna. He claims this was a joke in the narration, but damned if he didn't check with every person and munitions dump he found on the way.



** This turns into the focus of the Jurgen-focused short story ''The Smallest Detail''. He goes through a Quartermaster's depot so thoroughly the guy panics and thinks he's being audited. Jurgen actually did find evidence he was selling stuff on the side, but it's so expected it didn't even occur to him to report it until the man tried to have him silenced. When the bad guys are defeated and their truck full of stolen goods is spilled out on the road, Jurgen ''loots the pile'' right in front of the MP officer he was working with.

Jurgen actually did find evidence he was selling stuff on the side, side (the records were suspiciously meticulous), but it's so expected it didn't even occur to him to report it until the man tried to have him silenced. When the bad guys are defeated and their truck full of stolen goods is spilled out on the road, Jurgen ''loots the pile'' right in front of the MP officer he was working with.

* ConsummateLiar: Even before he knew about Jurgen, and afterward when he's not around, Cain was confident in his ability to fool ''mind readers'' - mostly by controlling stray thoughts. It is implied that he couldn't have defended himself from an actual investigation and is lucky that his memory has never been scanned before. But then again, Inquisitor Amberley Vail is the first human being in his life whom he cannot fool no matter how hard he tried, and she's not even a psyker.

* DesignatedHero: It's a case of PlayingWithATrope. Cain considers ''himself'' to be one, InUniverse. He doesn't think he's TheHero of this story, he doesn't even think he's ''a''' hero. He's just a guy in the wrong place at the wrong time who coincidentally saves the day while trying to save his own skin and nothing else. Yet he has this reputation as THE HERO OF THE IMPERIUM, and the official records of him describe him as such. The actual narrative, the one we real life readers see, does not portray him as a hero because its a first person narrative.

Added DiffLines:

** He's also a confessed master manipulator and liar who favors playing HumbleHero to cement his reputation. Unless we accept the idea that nobody was ever supposed to read this account, everything in it is suspect.

** Cain himself sort of jokingly lampshades this by referring to him as "Gunner-''in-Chief''" (a rank he made up himself) rather than a mere "Gunner."

* DavidAndGoliath: Very much the Goliath to Cain's David. As a ''very'' powerful daemon, Emeli is leagues beyond not only Cain, but everyone else he's a ever fought.

* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: The kind of daemon that Emeli has become is never specified, but given that she's able to paralyze a room full of people, shred a pair of Berzerkers, and threaten to pull an entire planet into the Warp, she's well on her way to being a Greater Daemon if she isn't one already.


Added DiffLines:

* VerbalTic: Describing someone as "silly".
* VillainousCrush: Tries to seduce Cain twice over, once when mortal, and once as a daemon.
